Sony NEX-FS700

Posted by admin under Video

I have been using the Sony FS100 for more than a year now, and it is time to add another camera to arsenal, to help improve and speed up the work flow.

The Sony FS700 is a natural and logical choice. I have read many reviews about the new features , but when I actually used it in the field, this baby exceeded my expectations.

 Like the saying, “More than meets the eye”

It comes with a better handle, ND filters, 8 megapixels still capture, and best of all “Super Slow Mo”. It can shoot up to 240 fps in Full HD.

This opens up a whole lot of creative possibilities.  It can also record up to a mind blowing  960 fps at lower resolutions.

Considering its price and what this camera can do, it is ahead of its competitors.

That’s not all, it also has improved auto focus options, “Face Detection, Spot Focus, etc”

Apart from being heavier than the FS100 (about 600gram more), I noticed it consumes more power too.

Extra batteries are needed for long duration shoots.

The FS700 features a Super 35mm sensor with a native 4K resolution for future proof.

With a Sony firmware upgrade somewhere in the end of the 1st Quarter 2013, this camera will 4K and Raw enabled.

I love the FS100 and I love this cam even more..
