Sony has officially announced the Sony FX6, a full-frame camcorder with 15 stops of dynamic range that captures 4K video up to 120p, FullHD video at up to 240p, and is a low light beast with sensitivity that can be cranked up to ISO409,000.

As neatly summed up by YouTuber Gerald Undone, the Sony FX6 is essentially a Sony A7S III in a shrunken-down Sony FX9 body – though it features some new tricks, such as the ability to record in DCI 4K and make cinema-level adjustments such as changes to shutter angle.
