New review up. This time of the Sony PWX-FX9. The 6K sensor full frame successor to the FS7. We look at everything from colour to usability, to the changes Sony are bringing to the camera later this year. If you’ve been considering an upgrade, or even thinking about this as your first cinema camera. This is the review to watch, especially if you’re based in Ireland. Please share with anyone you think might be interested. Paul Lynch and myself put absolutely tonnes of work into exploring every aspect of the camera. Trying to answer the question as much for ourselves as for you, is this the camera you should buy next?
Sony’s latest powerhouse production camera, his full frame beast follows up on the success of the FS7, which has become the go to camera for documentary and corporate shooters. Is this a worthy successor to the much loved FS7? What do its new features – like autofocus, full frame shooting, and S-Cinetone bring to the table? All this and more answered, in our comprehensive review.
