Building on the success of the Mk 1, the FS7 Mk2 has seen several ergonomic improvements, along with some improvement to build quality, however the technical abilities of the Mk 2 remain unchanged from the Mk 1.
A workhorse for the television industry, Sony's PXW-FS7 is a super 35mm camera capable of producing excellent 4K video, and slow motion up to 120 frames per second in HD. With a comfortable shoulder mounted form factor this is an extremely popular camera for documentaries and factual entertainment, as well as corporate video and commercial production.
Sony's hugely popular PXW FS7 camera combined great pictures from it's super 35mm sensor with great ergonomics and usability, making it possible for small crews and self shooters to produce great cinematic footage while also recording their own audio. The FS7 has the versatility of a traditional ENG style camera, while the results look more like cinema.
The FS7 features Sony's own E mount lens system, with a wide variety of useful ENG style zooms available, it can also be converted to accept Canon's hugely popular EF range of lenses with a metabones adaptor, or professional PL mount cinema lenses. Built in ND filters mean you can take advantage of fast apertures to produce a cinematic shallow depth of field, while adapting easily to changing lighting conditions.
Two professional XLR inputs mean the FS7 can be used with a wide range of professional microphones, or connected to a sound operator's mixer, making it ideal for small documentary crews that need to capture the best sound possible.
Continuous internal recording of up to 150 frames per second (180 in NTSC) in HD opens up a wide range of creative possibilities. And with the FS7-XDCA back end and an external recorder it's possible to record up to 200fps in 2K RAW.
The FS7 reflects Sony’s expertise in 4K and HD codecs, Super 35 sensors and memory recording. The result is the ideal camera for documentaries and the optimum tool for magazine shows, reality TV, unscripted TV and more.
4K Super 35 Exmor® sensor
When it comes to image sensors, size definitely matters. Sony’s Super 35 sensor delivers ‘bokeh’, the defocused backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field. A common technique for directing audience attention within the frame, shallow depth of field is far easier to achieve with a large sensor. Other things being equal, a bigger sensor also equates to better low-light sensitivity and lower image noise. And with bigger sensors, the field of view is wider for any given focal length lens.
