Fans of Sony’s popular NEX-FS100 are going to love the new NEX-FS700. The NEX-FS700 comes in a similar form factor to the NEX-FS100, but packs a lot more into its tiny body.
For starters, the FS700 comes with a 4K Super 35mm sized sensor that creates cinematic 1920 x 1080p video with increased depth of field and an impressive dynamic range. The Exmor CMOS sensor also decreases image noise while allowing for high sensitivity in low light shooting situations.
The NEX-FS700 recorders regular frame rates up to 60p, but has the additional ability to do short bursts of high speed recording, reaching up to 240fps 1080p in short bursts. With a reduced resolution it can achieve up to 960fps.
Sony has added a professional 3G HD-SDI output to the NEX-FS700, in addition to an HDMI output. The HD-SDI output can be used for monitoring, but can also be used to capture images to external recorders.
Although the FS700 records HD from it’s 4K sensor, a later firmware upgrade will allow it to output 4K material to an external recorder using the HD-SDI output.
Another much requested feature included in the NEX-FS700 is built-in ND filters. The filters can be used in four settings: clear (no ND), ND.6, ND1.2, and ND1.6.
This is preliminary information. All features and specifications are subject to change without notice.
4K “Exmor” Super 35 CMOS sensor
The NEX-FS700E camcorder uses a new 4K “Exmor” Super 35 CMOS sensor (total 11.6 million pixels). This high-speed readout chip is optimised for motion picture shooting, giving high sensitivity, low noise and minimal aliasing. A future firmware upgrade will enable the NEX-FS700E to output 4K RAW bit-stream data over 3G HD-SDI when used with an optional external 4K recorder.
Super slow motion at 10x at full HD or 40x at lower resolutions
Incredible super slow motion capability of up to 10x slow motion at full HD resolution or up to 40x slow motion at a reduced resolution, giving you creative options that were once only available with specialist high-end equipment.
E-mount interchangeable lenses offer a wide choice of lenses
The E-mount interchangeable lens system utilises an extremely short flange back distance allowing you to use a huge array of lenses via a range of adaptors giving you almost unlimited creative options.
SEL 18200 lens supplied
The supplied SEL18200 (E 18–200mm F3.5–6.3 OSS) with the NEX-FS700EK boasts 11x zoom power, a quiet AF motor for cleaner sound recording, and Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with an advanced Active mode that lets you take steady handheld shots while walking around — even without a bulky stabilization rig.
Additional A-mount lenses available
The Sony LA-EA2 A-mount lens adaptor allows you to use the wide range of high quality alpha lenses and take advantage of the auto focus function for quicker, more convenient operation.
Built-in ND filters
The NEX-FS700EK features built-in, ultra-thin ND filters, offering exceptional shallow depth-of-field on highlights. It also means less accessories to manage as no external ND filters are required.
3G-SDI interface and HDMI
A 3G-SDI output enables easy integration with highest quality recording formats.
The NEX-FS700EK has a refined ergonomic design with a robust detachable handle and grip.
Switchable 50 Hz and 60 Hz shooting
The NEX-FS700EK is switchable between 50 Hz and 60Hz to allow 24p shooting in PAL areas and no PAL/NTSC limitations.
Selectable magnification and positioning of expanded focus
Expanded focus improvement allowing 4x and 8x magnification and a moveable area of expansion for easy focusing with shallow depth of field.
Camera profile settings storage on memory card
Up to 99 camera profile settings can be stored, allowing rapid adaptation to multiple shooting environments without time wasted adjusting parameters. Settings are also easily shared in multi-camera productions.
