First Look: Sony PXC-FS7 L.S.S. Shoulder-Mount Camcorder, part 1

This article is a first look based on a couple of days of poking and prodding it; it arrived without any instructions and with version 0.06 firmware. Firmware version 0.07 and a preliminary copy of the ops manual showed up late Wednesday. New E-Mount lenses may appear later today or next week, which will provoke a follow-on article (so far I’ve made do with a selection of Nikon primes and zooms via a $23 Nikon-G-to-E-Mount adapter I bought when the FS100 came out, possibly the biggest photographic bang I’ve ever gotten for 23 bucks).

Truly excellent article, and should be compulsory reading for anybody interested in this camera. This camera has the possibility of rewriting the market for large sensor at this price point and finally brings sensible ergonomics to this type of camera.

Very interesting stuff. Thanks for the write up.

How do those rolling shutter numbers compare to other "similar" cameras like the F5 or the Canon C100/C300? Anybody know?

I'm assuming the handle can be detached as well if you want to put the camera on a rig.
