The Professional Videography community is abuzz with the announcement of the new and highly-anticipated Sony NEX-FS700 4K Ready High-Speed NXCAM Super35mm WorldCam a fully professional large-sensor video camera. Hot on the heels of the predecessor FS100, this compact, highly modular camera uses the same S35-size CMOS sensor as the Sony FS100.
B&H Photo Video is currently accepting pre-orders on Sony NEX-FS700 and NEX-FS700 camcorder kit
The fully professional Sony NEX-FS700 large-sensor video camera is now available for Pre-Order at B&H Photo Video. Unlike smaller, broadcast-style sensors or the larger “full-frame” sensors of some DSLR s, the NEX-FS700′s imaging area matches that of standard Hollywood film cameras, providing complete compatibility with cine-style film lenses (sold separately), as well as any of Sony’s optional E-Mount lenses. The sensor’s large size offers a variety of other advantages, including increased control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light, lower image noise, and an exceptional dynamic range.
Sony FS700 is able to shoot full 1080p video in a range of frame rates up to 60p, supports 4K 12-bit RAW data live recoding at up to 4096 x 2160 resolution. Plus, the FS700 provides the option of recording AVCHD footage onto SD or FMU port, or it can output 4:2:2 video (with embedded timecode) and RGB via HDMI 1.4 to an external recording unit. Simultaneous recording to both is also possible when instant backup is called for. There’s no stinting on audio, either, as the camera includes not only a shotgun microphone with mount/carrying handle, but dual XLR inputs for recording uncompressed, professional-level sound from an external source.
Other features -such as 3.5″ LCD panel with detachable with viewfinder attachment, super sensitivity, four ND filters and 1 – 960 fps super slow motion, all help to set this model in a class truly by itself. Not only will it intercut perfectly as a 2nd unit or B camera, it can stand on its own in applications as diverse as indie film, commercials, music promos, education, and wedding videos.
