Great camera, versatile

 

One of the best cameras to come out in a while as far as specs+pricing. It will take you about two days to get familiar with all of the menu options - but once you get the hang of it, you're hooked. The new firmware (3.0) gets rid of the slow/delayed...

Great cinema camera

 

Sony hit a home run when they designed this camera. The controls are well laid out , picture quality is great. And the build other than the viewfinder is rock solid. It is flexible enough to handle just about any video cinema needs, and the fact that...

G for omG

 

Ive used the fs7 with all its settings but s-log2 in custom with medium gamma , low matrix settings is the best cinematic/nograin/easyprofile to edit in post.

Almost awesome

 

The FS7 is a very customizable camera. You can create settings very specific to your needs. This is a blessing and a curse. It's nice to have the flexibility, but it also makes things more of a pain to set up. The options can be quite confusing for...

Holds up well on the big screen

 

I reviewed this product a year ago, this is an update. While I use the camera for daily jobs, I also used the FS7 to shoot a feature film (Providence). I shot in 4K CINE-EI SLOG3 exclusively, with a 4 person crew. We screened it in a state of the art...

Fantastic.

 

I waited until a year after this camera was released to purchase it. I really wanted to see if it would live up to the hype. I can safely say, it does. This is the most excellent video camera I have ever used. The image is gorgeous, the specs are...

Fantastic camera with some limitations

 

I use the camera for mostly doc and television shooting, and occasional narrative work.

Best camera for the money

 

Slomotion features are amazing, slog3 offers huge dynamic range and with sony's codec you get a 10 bit file that uses very little card/drive space. The ergonomics are amazing. You are able to use custom LUTs and use LUTS you download online (MLUTS)....

It's great!

 

It's a great camera whatever the design or image quality. I could say it's the best camera in this price range. qualityless 60fps 4K recording. It allows user switch the mode between Cine and Custom, u get a small F5 when you turn it to Cine mode.
