Product Description

Hot on the heels of the FS100, this compact, highly modular camera uses a very similar-sized Super 35 CMOS sensor as the FS100. But as a marked improvement over that earlier model's sensor, the FS700 features a native 4K resolution sensor. Unlike smaller, broadcast-style sensors or the larger "full-frame" sensors of some DSLRs, the NEX-FS700's imaging area matches that of standard Hollywood film cameras, providing complete compatibility with cine-style film lenses (sold separately). 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. Able to shoot full 1080p video in a range of frame rates up to 60p, the FS700 provides the option of recording AVCHD footage onto SD card/MemoryStick or via the FMU (flash memory unit) port, or it can output 4:2:2 video (with embedded timecode) via HDMI 1.4 or 3G/HD-SDI 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. One unique feature for a camcorder of this class is the FS700's ability to record bursts of super-slow motion video at rates up to a whopping 960 fps. (These bursts range from 8 to 16 seconds, depending of the frame rate). Full-resolution recording is possible at up to 240 fps; at 480 and 960 fps, resolution is reduced. The 3G/HD-SDI port will get expanded capability when a future firmware upgrade is available (not included). This will allow 4K output via the BNC as a data stream, which can be recorded to an optional Sony 4K recorder.

We use this camera for broadcast productions including TV, corporate, event coverage and creating special effects.
The trick pony is the slow motion that comes with the fs700. In one word it's awesome.

After playing with it for awhile with friends and family, you'll start to see the broad use of the slow motion when used correctly. The camera shoots 240 frames per second in full 1080p. 480fps looks good, but you do get some digital noise. 960fps is almost too much for practical use, and is set to a low resolution only.

The kit lens is good, but I highly recommend factoring in a MetaBones adapter (Speedbooster) and using 3rd party lenses.
We use Canon L's with this camera and the combination of Sony sharpness and Canon color / light coming through the glass is fantastic. The Speedbooster adapter also drops your lens by an F stop, it's voodoo! I don't know how it's done, but it works flawlessly and allows you to shoot much cleaner in lower light.

We considered the AF100, Canon 300 and Blackmagic CC before purchasing the Sony. Ran tests, checked out online footage, etc
and the Sony won every time. If you light your scenes correctly, you can achieve any look you want. With available light, it performs very well, even in low light. Again, the use of the Metabones adapter and some 'fast' glass will change everything.

The camera produces an MTS file buried in a Sony package on your card with the AVCHD codec. It's solid enough to do some good color correction and lighting changes. Transcode this footage immediately to ProRes for ease of editing.
