Get More from your Sony FX9 and Venice Cameras with New Firmware Updates

Here at B&H Photo, we’re happy to announce something special for owners and users of Sony’s FX9 and Venice cameras.

Sony PXW-FX9

Version 2.0 of the camera’s firmware will greatly expand the FX9’s already-impressive capabilities.

UPDATE: Sony has officially released version 2.0 for the FX9. It is available for download on Sony’s Support Page.

DCI 4K and RAW Recording

With this update, DCI 4K will be supported in Full Frame and Super 35mm, including 60, 50, 30, 25, and 24p. This is for the cinema purists, as well as anyone who has been asking for DCI support since before the FX9 was even released. You can also shoot 1920 x 1080p at 150/180 fps, in Full Frame, for creating even more dramatic cinematic effects. Firmware V 2.0 also brings the promised 16-bit RAW recording functionality, although it does require the addition of the XDCA-FX9 Extension Unit, but if you want or need RAW, this is the firmware update for you.

6G-SDI

While the FX-9 originally supported 4K 59.94/50p over its 12G SDI connection, the new firmware will add 6G support, which in turns adds 30/23.98p output via a single SDI cable.
