The Sony PXW-FX9 XDCAM 6K Full-Frame Camera System With 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens is a camera system, designed to provide beautiful 4K HDR imagery by oversampling its 6K full-frame sensor, & features 15+ stop dynamic range and Dual Base ISO. The PXW-FX9 allows you to capture the impossible, by featuring the world's first full-frame Electronic Variable ND and Fast Hybrid AF, in order to accurately & precisely track your subject with unprecedented speed.
Optics & Focus
The included Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens is designed specially to satisfy 4K production requirements with your full-frame APS-C/E-mount camcorder, & features a wide-angle to telephoto range, with 8-speed powered zoom control. Its 28-135mm focal length range is designed for cinema productions.
Sony's original Nano AR Coating technology is featured to effectively suppress reflections that can cause flare & ghosting, while allowing for accurate light transmission. Three extra-low dispersion elements & five aspherical elements help to reduce chromatic aberrations & distortion throughout the zoom, to improve overall sharpness & clarity.
Three control rings are featured to enable manual control for zoom, focus, & iris functions. The focus ring allows you to switch from auto to manual, by sliding the focus ring forward, maintaining control over your focus at all times. The zoom speed can be precisely controlled via zoom rotation, with direction reversal capability. The rings have been engineered for comfort & slip-free control.
The lens' advanced iris control & linear AF motor drive system are able to achieve quiet and responsive focusing. Its Super Sonic Wave Motor (SSM) Drive, which is the world's first SSM drive in a cinema lens, provides smooth iris control. The lens also maintains its plane of focus, as well as its field of view while zooming, which is an important quality for video applications.
Any axial image shifting is eliminated during tracking, throughout the zoom, & the lens' optical design & control technology ensures no breathing while focusing. Its constant f/4 maximum aperture enables consistency throughout the zoom, & benefits working in dim lighting conditions with longer focal lengths. Its Optical SteadyShot image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps, to benefit handheld shooting in dim lighting with greater zoom magnifications.
The Sony PXW-FX9 features Dual Base ISO of 800/4000, which provides optimal dynamic range for outdoor shooting, or shooting in bright lighting conditions. A secondary high-base sensitivity of ISO 4000 benefits shooting in low-light situations, such as early morning, & evening, while still maintaining high quality imagery. The secondary sensitivity of ISO 4000 is also ideal during slow-lens applications. The combination of dual base ISO with the PXW-FX9's electronic variable ND filter provides a great amount of creative control, as well as a high response to changing conditions in your shooting environment.
The PXW-FX9 features the world's first Electronic Variable ND filter, made for full-frame sensor camcorders, providing greater creative control, with smooth manual adjustments from 1/4 to 1/128 to provide perfectly exposed images, without having an impact on your depth of field throughout changes in the lighting conditions during your shoot. The ND filter also enables the use of higher density settings, with a slow shutter speed, for even more creative possibilities.
The Sony PXW-FX9 features a fast & accurate Fast Hybrid AF system, with face detection & custom settings, which allows you to effortlessly track fast-moving subjects. The tracking enables the ability to capture your subject with pin-sharp focus, even during the use of wide lens-aperture settings, allowing you to maintain a shallow depth of field. The combination of phase-detection AF, with the Fast Hybrid AF enables accurate subject tracking with Contrast AF for high focus-accuracy.

The featured "S-Cinetone" function is the FX9's default look, & is specially designed to meet the requirements of today's content creators, by featuring rich/mid-range colors, a softer tonal appearance, & alluring facial tones. This function was developed with the same expertise as Sony's "VENICE" digital cinematography camera. It allows you to experience fresh & vivid content, straight out of the camera, with subjects that really stand out, while still retaining plenty of latitude in post-production.
The Sony PXW-FX9 provides you with a selection of recording formats, such as XAVC-I with 422 10-bit quality (at up to 600MB/s in 60p), & XAVC-Long for longer recording time in a smaller file size. The traditional MPEG HD codec is also available, & all files will be recorded onto XQD media cards.
Selectable frame-rates are available in both full-frame, & Super35mm, for a range that enables impressively-quick, to slow motion capture, & you are able to choose your desired frame-rate from 1fps up to 180fps. A "Quality Priority" setting is featured, for maximizing full HD, slow motion image quality with advanced, oversampling technology.

This is the magnifying factor of a lens. Macro lenses will often be described by their “magnification factor”. A lens with a 1:1 magnification factor produces a projected image on the sensor which is the same as the subject.
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
