Sony ILME-FX6


Day rate:
£160

The FX6 is Sony's new 'in the middle' of their FX range, also comprising the ILME-FX3 (FX3) and PXW-FX9 (FX9). This sits very nicely in the middle slot of the range, to make it a very useful camera for a wide range of projects. It's lightweight, but records outstanding 4K full frame quality at up to 120p. The FX6 has recently been approved for Netflix projects.

Excellent low light capabilities with a 409,800 maximum ISO, and a wide dynamic range with it's 10.2 Megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor.

Much like it's bigger brother the FX9, the FX6 can shoot S-LOG3 and S-CINETONE picture profiles, as well as having features to make it a very 'run and gun' camera; real-time eye autofocus, real-time touch tracking and customisable autofocus tracking sensitivity.

Like the others in the Sony Alpha range, this is a native E-Mount, so if you plan to use Canon mount or PL mount lenses, you will also need an EF or PL Adapter.

Please note that if you wish to record in Super-35mm, the resolution would drop to 2K. If you wanted to 4K in Super-35mm, then check out our PXW-FX9 Hire.

In stock and ready to hire, with our branches in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, and shipping throughout the UK.
