The Sony's PXW-FS7 XDCAM Super 35 Camera System is a flexible 4K camera system designed to be used in the studio or in the field.

 

It features a sensor that allows you to capture images with cinematic depth of field. The camera's E-mount is machined from stainless steel and allows you to use E-mount lenses or, with the use of optional adapters, to accept most 35mm lenses including PL, EF, Leica and Nikon. An ergonomically designed handgrip provides control of many of the camera's functions and features an adjustable length support arm.


The 4K Super35 EXMOR sensor features 14 stops of latitude and a wide color gamut. It can capture footage to on board XQD media cards in either UHD (3840x2160) at up to 60 FPS or full HD (1920x1080) at up to 180 FPS. The camera can also capture 4K (4096 x 2160) images and send the signal out over its SDI or HDMI connectors. The dual XQD media cards support simultaneous or relay recording in your choice of XAVC-I, XAVC-L or MPEG-2 codecs.


XAVC can be used for 4K as well as HD recording while MPEG-2 is limited to HD only. XAVC comes in two flavours: XAVC-Intra and XAVC-Long allowing you to encode from HD to UHD using Intra-Frame or Long GoP compression with 10-bit 422 sampling for HD and a choice of either 10-bit 422 or 8-bit 420 for UHD. XAVC-I compression is very efficient recording at modest bit rates. XAVC-L substantially extends the recording time while still attaining very high quality and low noise.


Recording Apple ProRes to the internal XQD slots requires an optional XDCA-FS7 extension box and a future upgrade. Full 4K (4096 x 2160) is available over the 3G-SDI outputs or the HDMI 2.0 output so you can capture video using an optional external recorder.

Personal Notes:


- 64 GB card allows up to 20 minutes of 4K XAVC Intra.
