New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

Sony released a teaser for IBC. Any guesses as to what it will be?

Re: New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

I posted this in Area 51.

Initially I thought it was the 1'' fixed lens Exmor R NX100 successor with 4K, but once I found out it was E-mount, I then thought about either a EA50 replacement with a different form factor or a VG30 4K version.

No clue on sensor size. APS-C? Super35?

Re: New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

on the image the ea50 and the fs7 are already shown and it says a new "fs camera" so probably the fs100 replacement.

That's not the EA50. That's the FS700, which has just seen a big price drop. I'm thinking it will be more professional than the EA50. Since it's shown between the FS7 and FS700, I'm thinking it'll have an S35 size sensor.

Re: New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

The outline looks like a mini FS7 with a EVF on the back. A FS3 or FS5 perhaps. think a squat little body like that would be great, the FS7 turned me off because of its size. If the FS700 is $4k and the FS7 is $8k, I'd expect this one to "fit" right at $6k. As for the rest, we'll just have to wait and see, Sony seems to surprise me more often than not with features on budget cameras like these.

Re: New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

Yes, the image shows:
A7S > FS700 > FS??? > FS7

Curious thing here is that they include the A7S in the FS-series line-up. That combined with another image with the text saying "Missing Piece" enhances the feeling I've had for month that the new FS camera will be full frame. That would make the series:
FF > S35 > FF > S35.

To me, at that position ($5-6000) a full frame camera is the only thing that really makes sense.
Making something similar but better than the FS700 and you have the FS7. Making something just smaller/cheaper/less functions than the FS7 just makes it an FS700 with XAVC.
With a Full Frame camera they can leave out quite a lot (high frame rates, some higher end codecs etc) to make sure it doesn't quite compete with the FS7 while still have something unique to warrant the price and cause a buzz. And they would finally have a camcorder that's a perfect fit for the 28-135 cine lens.

The silhouette looks like an FS7 with a viewfinder in the back so I assume they will have many similarities. Maybe the built in shoulder pad etc is gone to make it slightly smaller?

Really excited for this one!

Re: New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

If it's full frame, it would make that 28-135mm lens make sense.

Re: New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

The first thing that stuck out to me was the "tulip" shaped lens hood on the thing, which implies a zoom, and typically a rather wide zoom. Are we looking at a fixed lens here, or are they also announcing a companion to their 28-135 f power zoom, perhaps a 17-55 or something more useful on a super 35 sensor (which I think this is going to end up being).

I blogged my thoughts about it last month:

Re: New Sony E-mount video cam for IBC

Oh, so a VG900 replacement it may be then, just with much better EVFs and a proper LCD placement.
