The Sony PXW-FS7 features a 4K Super35 sensor that gives you 14 stops of latitude as well as a wide color gamut. Two choices of codecs are available: XAVC or MPEG—2. The XAVC codec records 4K & HD, while MPEG-2 can only be used for HD.

Internally, the Sony  FS7 records 4K up to 60fps in UHD 3840×2160 and in HD up to 180fps. 4K (4096×2160) is available over the 3G-SDI or HDMI 2.0 outputs. This allows you to capture 4096×2160 video via an optional external recorder. The Sony FS7 camera is equipped with the Sony E-mount.

It features a Super 35mm size sensor that allows you to capture images with cinematic depth of field. The camera’s E-mount is machined from stainless steel and allows you to use E-mount lenses or with the use of optional adapters to accept most 35mm lenses including PL, EF, Leica, and Nikon. The camera can capture footage to optional on-board XQD media cards in either DCI (4096 x 2160), UHD (3840 x 2160) at up to 60 FPS or HD at up to 180 FPS.

Designed as a camera that is at home on productions as diverse as “Cinéma Vérité”-style documentaries, reality TV, commercial and corporate applications the Sony FS7 XDCAM Super 35 Camera System is a flexible 4K camera system. The FS7 records in your choice of XVAC-I, XVAC-L, or MPEG-2. However, MPEG-2 recording does not support the high data rates the camera is capable of generating when shooting in UHD, and is limited to recording HD video only. The FS7 incorporates Dual XQD media card slots that support simultaneous or relay recording. An ergonomically designed handgrip provides control of many of the FS7’s functions and features an adjustable length support arm.
