Sony announced that the NEX-FS100 has a big brother the NEX-FS700 with a S35 4K Exmor CMOS sensor with a possible 4K video 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution. The Sony FS700 camera works with E-mount lens with option for Sony A-mount lenses, and should be available around June.
The Sony FS700 has built on the modular form of the FS100 and has an improved removable handle on the top. At the back of the FS700 camera the second XLR input has moved positions to the FS100’s. Focus and auto iris functions are now on the grip. Similar to the Sony PMW-F3 there is a position set aside for a future zoom rocker.
The Sony FS700 has internal ultra-thin ND filters, offering exceptional shallow depth-of-field on highlights. The FS700 ND filters are in three stages 1/4ND, 1/16 ND, & 1/64ND. The camera has SDI output including 3G, and AVCHD recording up to 1080p50 and 1080p24 internally. A 3G-SDI output enables easy integration with the highest quality external recording formats.
The Sony FS700 can do super slow motion at 10x at full HD or 40x at lower resolutions. So expect the Sony NEX-FS700 to do slow motion at 120, 240, 480, 960 frames per second. The Sony FS700 camera records 120 and 240 frames per second in Full HD Speeds. The Sony FS700 will do 480 and 960 frames per second but will be recorded at a reduced quality.
The NEX-FS700E is switchable between 50 Hz and 60Hz to allow 24p shooting in PAL areas and no PAL/NTSC limitations.
Expanded focus improvement allowing 4x and 8x magnification and a moveable area of expansion for easy focusing with shallow depth of field.
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. The FS700 camera has a photo feature with 8.3 megapixel resolution.
