The NEX-FS700U is equipped with a new 4K Exmor Super 35 CMOS sensor (Total 11.6 million pixels) capable of cranking at up to 960 frames per second. This high-speed readout chip is optimized for motion picture shooting, producing exceptional image fidelity with high sensitivity, low noise and minimal aliasing.
The FS series camera’s E-mount is designed to accept virtually all 35mm SLR, DSLR and cinematography lenses, with the use of simple, inexpensive third party adapters sold separately -without optical degradation-. FS series camera owners are able to continue to use their existing 35mm lenses and add more lenses without being limited to a particular lens brand or mount type.
The NEX-FS700U started as a 4K sensor Super 35mm camcorder capable of a vast array of high frame rate (HFR) and recording options to the superb on-board AVC-HD recording capability. The NEX-FS700U now features an upgrade that enables full 2K RAW up to 240fps or 4K RAW up to 60fps recording to Sony’s AXS-R5 RAW recorder.
Upgraded NEX-FS700U camcorders now record Linear RAW with 12-bit precision to the HXR-IFR5 RAW interface plus AXS-R5 memory recorder (sold separately). This system enables continuous, FULL 2K resolution recordings at: 23.98, 25, 30, 50, 60, 100, 120, 200 & 240fps. It is also capable of continuous FULL 4K RAW recoding at: 23.98, 25, 30, 50 & 60fps. This system can also record 120fps at 4K resolution in 4 second “bursts” that result in 20 second at 24fps. It is possible to simultaneously record to the AVCHD format (except HFR mode).
Convergent Design’s Odyssey 7Q records 2K, uncompressed: Cinema DNG up to 240fps and 4K DPX up to 30fps when connected to the FS700U.
