Sony has also teased the new FX6. So far there is no information apart from the release of a picture. The FX6 doesn’t come as any real surprise. There has been rumors circulating about the camera ever since the FX9 was first announced.

Sony will be releasing and shipping this next addition to the range, the FX6 by the end of 2020.


From looking at the FX6 and the FS5 Mark II, a big difference is the lack of the rear EVF. What else do you notice?

Upcoming Firmware Updates

Each of the Cinema Line cameras will evolve with user feedback: The FX9 Version 3 upgrade, available in 2021, will see the addition of the S700PTP* allowing Remote Control of Sony’s camera, a Center Scan mode for Super 16mm lens and B4 Lens support with its adaptor as well as other features.

In November 2020, the VENICE camera will see a couple of additional features in its V6.0 version which will improve its operability in broadcast and live environments.

At Sony, we celebrate and have the deepest respect for filmmakers, cinematographers, and storytellers. With Cinema Line, we’re tapping into our DNA from both the film industry and digital imaging prosumer market and combining it to develop new creative tools. This line of products will enable creators to push their creative boundaries further and capture the emotion in each and every frame.
