Sony NEX-FS700

 

The Sony NEX-FS700 offers an attractive set of features.

Although its $10,000 price tag may seem high, the NEX-FS700 is actually more modestly-priced than the competition.

Absolutely Amazing Camera

 

The Sony FS700 is an extremely powerful camera on it's own. I used it for 2 years simply recording to the SD card onboard with good results. Th real power comes when you incorporate the Odyssey 7Q+ to the mix. The picture, colors and clarity are as...

"I would buy this product again and again"

 

I have just spend a couple of days with 3 of Sony's latest offerings. The new compact XDCAM camcorder, the PMW100, the diminutive NXCAM HXR-NX30 and the NEX-FS700. If you've managed to miss all the noise, the FS700 is yet another camcorder with a Super...

Great Cam with some caveats.

 

I basically am writing this review to echo the great things most people are saying, but I want to highlight that the "There are no cons" statement in the header of the BH reviews is misleading. Here are the cons:-This camera is really, really heavy and...

Nice quality!

 

Since I always shoot on sticks, this camera is great for me. The high resolution quality is wonderful. It does well even in dim light. I love having interchangeable lenses, but wish I could control the zoom electronically.

FS700R & Odyssey 7Q+

 

The best camera ever made, especially with the Odyssey 7Q+. Use a battery BP-U90 for the Odyssey 7Q+ and LP for Sony and recorded all day with a battery and of course 240fps in ProRes is magic.

Still Cutting Edge, For Now

 

I bought this specifically to go with an Odyssey 7Q+ I already owned. Together, they make a powerful duo with 4k ProRes at up to 120fps burst or 60fps continuous from the RAW 3G-SDI port. (Requires the RAW upgrade on the Odyssey.)
