Professionals are greeting the Sony PXW-FS7 with surprise, appreciation and excitement. And for good reason. The camera reflects years of conversations we’ve had with documentarians on viewfinder placement, grip design, balance and ergonomics. It also reflects Sony’s expertise in 4Ki and HD codecs, Super 35 sensors and memory recording.The result is the ideal camcorder for cinéma vérité documentaries, magazine shows, reality TV, unscripted TV and more
It shoots in 4Ki at up to 60pii or Full HD XAVC Intra at a high frame rate of up to 180 fps. Selectable recording formats also include XAVC Long, which supports 1080/60p with 4:2:2 10-bit recording and the legacy MPEG-2 HD 422 format used by broadcast stations. Attach an optional Extension Unit (XDCA-FS7) to open up the possibilities of multi-camera shooting and Apple ProRes 422 HQ – 1920 x 1080, which will be available early 2015 by firmware update at no additional cost. For external 4K/2K RAW synced to internal Full HD recording, connect the XDCA-FS7 to a Sony HXR-IFR5 interface and AXS-R5 recorder or compatible third party recorder.
Your hand-held long-form work deserves a camera designed precisely for your purposes. You deserve the PXW-FS7.
