Good grief. Reading those specs and that price is like

Re: Sony NEX-FS700 - It's real

This camera looks insane. I'm hoping this cam causes the second-hand market to flood with FS-100's :P

Re: Sony NEX-FS700 - It's real

A camera that outguns C300 and at a price point where C300 should have been!
There is a user who claims he manage to record 200 fps slow mo at an atomos samurai:

Re: Sony NEX-FS700 - It's real

What about auto-focus, and still no motorized servo zoom? :(

Re: Sony NEX-FS700 - It's real

This is going to change the market quite a bit. Everybody is going to be able to make films for the big screen now (in acceptable quality that is...). The industry is becoming more and more cut-throat.

Anyway, when comparing the FS700 to the FS100 and if we exclude 4K for what are we paying 3K to 4K more?

For HD work the FS100 has a better chip doesn't it? It's designed for HD, right? So when looking from the HD perspective what does the FS700 got that the FS100 hasn't got? S-LOG?, HD-SDI, NDs, 50/60 switch able, super slow-mo, anything else?

I wonder what Panasonic will do next:)

There is a zoom rocker on the handle though.

Really? With surely such a large contingent of crusty old chain smoking technical director types I would have thought they hand out hip flasks at the door.

(yeah, the picture doesn't work that well without animation).

Yeah, Sony will make some zooms with a servo zoom motor. E-mounts, I would guess. Maybe some A-mounts?

Re: Sony NEX-FS700 - It's real

Just a little confused by Sony's description of "magnification'. They say:

"Selectable magnification and positioning of expanded focus. Expanded focus improvement allowing 4x and 8x magnification and a moveable area of expansion for easy focusing with shallow depth of field."

Do they mean some mechanism to increase the crop factor in the Exmor chip (really important for wildlife), or just a magnifcation in the viewfinder to help focus (not so critical)?

Re: Sony NEX-FS700 - It's real

That feature as its being described in this context is a focus aid only.

Please god, don't let it have a 3X crop like the T3i/60D because if it it does I might HAVE to buy it. In over twenty years I have purchased only Canon "prosumer" cameras but with the posted specs and that feature it would make me jump. Please don't have it, please don't have it.....
