A Few More Details About Sony's New Full Frame FX9 Camera


Bob Kertesz
 

Just got an email from B&H in New York that their price for the camera
body  is $11K, and with a 28-135mm f/4 lens it's $13.5K.

No affiliation with B&H aside from buying stuff from them on occasion.

the start of IBC, the embargo has now been lifted, so here is a link
with a few more details than the rumors that have been circulating:

Yes, this is good. The FS7 & FS5 were also a benefactors of that philosophy, I believe.

I've started to need a smaller, low profile camera for shooting on the streets, run 'n' gun, gimbal and as a one man band. The Panasonic GH5/GH5S are nice because they shoot 10 bit 4:2:2 internally and have decent AF. It would be nice to see Sony have 10 bit internal 4:2:2 on the A7 line. The eye AF and Phase Detection are accurate.

The buried lede in the article:

"Sony has recently combined their professional camera divisions handling higher end Cine Alta Digital Cinema cameras such as the Venice, with groups handling the more budget sensitive, small form factor models such as the FS7, along with their professional mirrorless cameras like the A7 line."

Most large companies with multiple product lines selling into the biz have sharply delineated markets, and the people in the higher segments are quite adamant about not including higher end features in the lower end segment products in order to not cannibalize potential sales of the higher end products.

Sony has apparently decided to forego that model, which means it's likely higher end features will begin to appear in lower end products, the FX9 being the first example of that concept.
