Connecting directly to the PXW-FX9 camera with no cables needed, the XDCA-FX9 extension unit provides convenient additional features to enhance shooting convenience and flexibility.
Adding the XDCA-FX9 extension unit to the PXW-FX9 allows recording of 16-bit RAW footage from the camera on a third-party RAW recorder like Atomos Shogun 7. RAW data is output directly via the extension unit’s RAW interface.
The Shogun 7 captures highly detailed 12-bit RAW files from the FX9 over SDI at up to DCI 4Kp29.97 in Full-frame, or DCI 4Kp59.94 in Super35. These unprocessed files are extremely clean, preserving the maximum dynamic range, color accuracy and every detail. The resulting ProRes RAW files allow for greater creativity in post production with perfect skin tones and easily matched colors, ideal for both HDR and SDR (Rec.709) workflows.
