    Sony announces new FX9 4k camera with 6k fullframe sensor

    Sensor: newly-developed 6K Full-Frame
    Dynamic range: 15 stops
    Output: 4K 4:2:2 in 10 bit. Initially UHD. DCI 4k will be enabled later in December 2019. FHD 120p via extension kit. 16bit raw with XDCA extension kit
    Dual ISO: ISO 800/4000
    7stop electronic variable ND filter
    Image stabilization: metadata generated by FX9’s in built gyros to decide shake compensation

    B&H lists it at $10998 USD

    What do you guys think? When every other camera is giving you 5.9k output the FX9 is 4K only. Will you miss 6K output?

    How much would it cost to be able to record RAW?

    €2500 for the back, then whatever a recorder will cost. So I guess €4-5000.
    That to me is the biggest downside to this camera, the need of that extension to record raw.

    From the Newsshooter article it sounds like the whole RAW recording part of the camera isn't really worked out well yet:
    https://www.newsshooter.com/2019/09/...l-frame-sensor

    The XDCA-FX9 extension unit ($2500) will supposedly enable 16-bit RAW output, but it's not clear if this will be limited to 4K and 2K recording (which presumably would be a sensor crop when outputting RAW) or if they will enable full sensor 6K RAW output. And apparently this RAW output from the FX9 extension unit will not be compatible with Sony's existing AXS-R7 RAW recorder ($7000) which works with the F5, F55, and Venice. So I am not sure if they are planning on developing a new RAW recorder or working with 3rd parties like Atomos to enable RAW recording on their monitor/recorders.

    Sounds like a mini-VENICE for $11k, just like the C500II sounds like a mini-C700FF for $16k. Both out of my price range but it's nice to see high-end image coming downstream.

    In my opinion, no on-board raw recording is a mistake. The fact that you need an external recorder in addition to the extension unit just to get raw from the FX9 puts it at a significant disadvantage compared to the Canon C500 Mark II.

    If you don't want raw, then this looks like a good camera. But I think Canon really hit it out of the park this time.
