FS 100 discontinued

I just notice at B&H website that the Fs 100 discontinued.
Hopefully a replacement coming soon.

Re: FS 100 discontinued

No doubt there's a replacement coming... there's always a next one.

We'll definitely keep this board open for the foreseeable future, for the benefit of everybody who continues to shoot with the FS100.

FS100 and EA50 are points in the model lineup to introduce a 4K versions with XAVC-S. Maybe IBC !! Would be competition for the Panasonic DVX200.

Re: FS 100 discontinued

Would *crush* the DVX200 for anybody who cares about having the option of interchangeable lenses!!

Panasonic needs an "AF200".

Currently *only* JVC fills this market niche, with their GY-LS300

I've blogged my thoughts on what a successor might be:

Re: FS 100 discontinued

I want 60P in UHD at 150Mbps like my FDR-AX1 but better low light and image. An EA50 UHD version would be fine with me. I am sure for $1000 Sony could make it UHD with XAVC-S. That would undercut the DVX200 and with interchangeable lenses.

Re: FS 100 discontinued

Will certainly be interesting to see what Sony does to fill this market space. Maybe another FS700 price drop? Or perhaps a successor just around the corner? I'm sure plenty of people will be looking for a B-cam to their FS7's, ideally with on-board 4K.

I'm hungry to see anybody offer competition to the GY-LS300, particularly Sony, as I've been a Sony guy for 20 years now. Can't wait for IBC.

Something is cooking.

Yes, it's known as the FS7.

EDIT: Well well well, looks like something was cooking after all!

Re: FS 100 discontinued

Do not normally get fired up about new cameras but I switched (sold) my FS100 for the FS700 for slow motion and sometimes 4k via the Shogun, but I miss the size of the 100. Really hope the new camera is more fs100 size and weight with the detachable viewfinder and grip like the FS7.
