Intro image for article Evaluating the Sony FX9 and VENICE Sensors
Tutorials & Guides
Since the release of Sony's PXW-FX9 digital cinema camera, we've gotten a lot of questions from clients about how it compares to Sony's flagship cinema camera, the VENICE. Now that Sony has released major firmware updates for both cameras (2.01 for the FX9 and 6.0 for the VENICE), we thought now would be a good opportunity to compare their capabilities, particularly in terms of each camera’s sensor.

Any time a new compact lightweight camera like Sony's PXW-FX9 comes out, camera assistants and operators have to spend a fair amount of time thinking about how to kit it out. To that end I recently spent some time myself evaluating and analyzing the different accessories on offer for the new camera. I also conferred with our rental department to get the perspective of a typical camera house environment and use that to compare against the more specialized needs of an owner-operator or low-budget filmmaker. Combining this insight with my own experience as a 1st AC and documentary camera operator helped me create this accessory guide, which, while not all-inclusive, should serve as a good starting point for any new FX9 owner.
