Sony PXW-FS7M2 XDCAM Super35 Camera System (Body Only)

Sony FS7 II dramatically improves the experience of shooting with Sony’s ultimate documentary camcorder and is simply one of the world’s most versatile Super 35mm camcorders. A host of enhancements, from an all-new lens mount to world-leading Electronic Auto Variable ND system and enhanced ergonomics, transform the possibilities of what you can do. FS7 II delivers the spectacular imagery you expect from Sony.

4K Super35 Exmor Sensor

When it comes to image sensors, size definitely matters. Sony’s Super 35 sensor delivers ‘bokeh’, the defocused backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field. A common technique for directing audience attention within the frame, shallow depth of field is far easier to achieve with a large sensor. Other things being equal, a bigger sensor also equates to better low-light sensitivity and lower image noise. And with bigger sensors, the field of view is wider for any given focal length lens.

Luxurious Color

Long-form projects shine with Sony’s XAVC L (Long GOP) recording system. Record luxurious QFHD at 59.94p/50p at a maximum bit rate of 150Mbps or take advantage of the superior grayscale rendition of 10-bit High Definition, plus the uncompromised detail of 4:2:2 color – all at budget-friendly data rates of 50, 35 or even 25Mbps in HD mode. You can also record on-board 4K (4096×2160) at cinema standard 24p, 59.94p, 50p, 29.97p, 23.98p or 25p. The camera captures different color spaces, including the wide ITU-R BT.2020 for Ultra-High Definition.

High Frame Rates up to 180fps

Reveal the beauty and drama of everyday motion with HFR shooting. That’s why the FS7 II provides continuous recording at Full HD at frame rates of up to 180fps. When you play back at 23.98p, you’ll enjoy extraordinary Super Slow Motion of up to 7.5x. Compared to burst mode, the continuous recording of the FS7 II reduces mistimed shots and extra takes. The camera also provides Slow and Quick motion from 1fps to 180fps, in 1fps increments. This enables time lapse effects to make the clouds race by or flowers bloom before your eyes.

Ergonomically Improved Viewfinder

The mounting arm for the Sony FS7 II’s viewfinder is now even more flexible with independent clamps easily adjusted by hand even while still on your shoulder. The viewfinder itself can be perfectly offset for right-eye or left-eye viewing with a huge range of fore-aft adjustment. Just turn a single knob to set the finder’s position. For even greater flexibility, Sony supplies a 15 mm rod mount. The viewfinder takes the form of an LCD monitor and a viewfinder extension box that easily tilts up and out of the way when you want direct viewing. The viewfinder extension box is now even easier to attach, while the LCD hood is can be bundled while not in use.

Built-in Electronic Variable ND Filters

Sony’s ground-breaking integration of electronic variable ND Filters into the body of a Super 35mm camcorder enables fast, agile shooting. Moving from shadowy interiors to bright sun-lit exteriors is no problem with the Sony FS7 II Video Camera. Unlike conventional optical ND Filters, the electronic ND Filter on the FS7 II can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly while ND Filters can be set to fully auto. You can even manually adjust depth of field using the iris lens ring, while relying on the FS7 II to maintain constant exposure without changing gain or shutter speed.

E-Mount Flexibility

E-mount offers unsurpassed compatibility with both Sony and third-party lenses. And for FS7 II there’s an all-new lever lock design. Simply put the lens in place and rotate the collar until it locks in place. A lens release lever provides added security. The process of switching lens can be simplified to save time.
