A few days before FX9’s official launch at IBC 2019, Sony invited eight of Europe’s best filmmakers to a secure studio location. Their task was to shoot with what were then the only functional FX9 cameras in the world and put key features to the test in real-world scenarios.
The filmmakers’ first reactions to FX9 wouldn’t be based on marketing info or product specifications, but shooting with the FX9 just as they would in a normal shoot.
Each filmmaker was given complete freedom to shoot in the way that they felt was best and at the end of the day we recorded their reactions.
Alexandru Don shot amazing footage to explore the narrow depth of field made possible with the FX9’s full frame sensor. Philip Bloom was so impressed by the FX9’s Electronic Variable ND Filter that he felt ‘every camera in the world’ should have it. Uli Mors also praised the electronic VND system and particularly enjoyed how easy and practical it was to use.
