Super 35mm Camcorder with E-Mount
The Sony FS7 features a Super 35mm Exmor CMOS sensor with an effective resolution of 11.6 megapixels. It can capture 4K footage at up to 60 frames per second and offers high image quality with a wide dynamic range of 14 stops.
The camera supports various recording formats, including XAVC-I, XAVC-L and MPEG-2. XAVC-I is a high-quality intra-frame format, while XAVC-L is an efficient long-GOP format. Both formats offer 4K and HD recording options. Internally, the image signal is recorded with 4:2:2 colour sampling, with the option to use S-Log2 and S-Log3.
The FS7 has an E-mount lens system that allows a wide choice of lenses. You can use Sony E-mount lenses as well as lenses from other manufacturers with adapters. We offer our ultra-sharp Nikkor lenses for this, which we use together with a Metabones adapter. The camera offers the ability to shoot slow motion at up to 180 frames per second in 1080p. This enables impressive slow-motion effects.
The Sony FS7 has been developed with an ergonomic design to meet the needs of professional filmmakers. It features an adjustable handgrip, side control handle and shoulder rest for comfortable handling and stabilisation. We have further upgraded the camcorder and offer for rent a second handle, an adapter for V-mount batteries, a compendium with two filter slots and a top plate, which has various 1/4" and 3/4" threads.
The camera is well expandable and offers a variety of accessory and expansion options. For example, there is an optional raw output that allows you to connect external recorders to make high-quality raw recordings.
