Re: Pxw-fs7 II

Some nice little functional ergonomic updates, the vari ND, rec.2020... but in no way an evolution.

But that's Sony and totally expected, so no surprise or complaints from me. Though they should have called it an FS7r. :)

Wait, one complaint... should have done 240@1080.

Re: Pxw-fs7 II

I'm always in favor of operational improvements, but the Rec. 2020 upgrade could easily come to the old FS7 in the form of a firmware update.

Also, good luck getting your SWIT batteries to work, I know they're going to keep playing the cat and mouse game with those batteries.
