The Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder body is an update to Sony's NEX-FS700U that enables 4K/2K 12-bit RAW output and S-Log2 recording capabilities. It retains all the features of the NEX-FS700U, including the native 4K sensor, Super Slow Motion recording, built-in ND filters, and CineGamma curves. 4K/2K RAW is recorded to the Sony AXS-R5 Recorder via the HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit, or to compatible third party recorders such as Convergent Design's Odyssey 7Q via the 3G/HD-SDI output. The HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit and external recorders are sold separately.

The Super 35mm sized sensor matches that of standard film and digital cinema cameras. It accepts interchangeable E-mount lenses, as well as a variety of 35mm SLR and DSLR lenses and professional cinema lenses with the use of optional third party adapters. On-board, the NEX-FS700R shoots full 1080p video in a range of frame rates up to 60p, with bursts of up to 240 fps in full HD resolution and 960fps at lower resolutions. When used with the HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit and AXS-R5 Recorder, you can record continuous 2K RAW at up to 240fps and 4K RAW at up to 60fps. 120fps 4K RAW recording is possible in 4 second bursts. This makes the NEX-FS700R a high-speed, 4K camera ready for professional shoots such as indie films, commercials, corporate videos, and music videos.

You have the option of recording AVCHD footage onto SD cards, Memory Stick Duo, or the HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory Unit via the FMU port. It can also output 4:2:2 uncompressed HD video via HDMI 1.4 or 3G/HD-SDI to an external recording unit. For enhanced exposure latitude, CineGamma curves, including S-Log2, and 800% 709 gamma curves are available. Other features include an ISO range of 320 to 64,000, a shotgun microphone with mount/carrying handle, dual XLR inputs for recording uncompressed, professional-level sound, a 3.5" LCD panel with detachable with viewfinder attachment, and built-in ND filters.

Super 35mm Exmor CMOS Sensor
The Super 35mm sized Exmor CMOS sensor matches that of standard film and digital cinema cameras. The sensor's large size offers a variety of advantages over small sensor cameras, including increased control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light, lower image noise, and improved dynamic range.
E-Mount Interchangeable Lens System
Sony's E-mount gives you the flexibility to use a wide variety of lenses with the NEX-FS700R. Shoot with high-quality Sony E-mount lenses or with Sony A-mount lens via the optional LA-EA1 mount adapter. You can also use 35mm SLR and DSLR lenses or professional cinema lenses with the use of optional third party adapters.
On-Board AVCHD Recording & Optional Flash Memory Unit
The camcorder supports Full HD 1920x1080 video at 60p, 30p, and 24p. Video is recording using the AVCHD codec at up to 28Mbps. One memory slot accepts either Memory Stick Duo or SD/SDHC/SDXC cards. You also have the option of recording to the optional HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory Unit using the FMU port. The HXR-FMU128 allows record times of 10 hours at 28Mbps. Simultaneous recording to the SD memory card and HXR-FMU128 is supported.
Slow & Quick Motion Recording
Shoot 120 and 240fps bursts at Full HD 1920x1080 for super slow motion. Playback at 24fps yields slow motion at 1/5 and 1/10 normal speed. At reduced resolutions, 480 and 960fps bursts are available for even more creative possibilities. Other slow and quick motion frame rates available are 60, 30, 15, 8, 4, 2 and 1 fps in 60 Hz mode, or 50, 25, 12, 6, 3, 2 and 1 fps in 50 Hz mode.
4K/2K 12-Bit RAW Output
When used with the HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit and AXS-R5 Recorder, sold separately, you can continuously record 2K RAW up to 240fps and 4K RAW at up to 60fps, and 120fps in 4 second bursts. 120 and 240fps 2K is also supported by the Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q. For lower resolution proxy files, you can simultaneously record to the AXS-R5 and to the camera's internal memory cards. Files will have matching time code, start frame, stop frame, file names, and other metadata.
Modular Design
Depending on your needs, the modular design lets you add a matte box, rods, and viewfinder hood for shoulder-mount shooting, or lets you leave the camera stripped down for lightweight, handheld use. A top handle attaches with two screws and the right side of the FS700U features an industry-standard Arri rosette mount for adding handles and other accessories. 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch screw holes on the top and bottom provide support for a range of accessories. The tape-measure hook and image sensor position index help when measuring focus on set. There is also a Hold switch to prevent accidental setting changes during a shot.
Uncompressed 4:2:2 Output & RGB Output via HDMI 1.4
Output 4:2:2 uncompressed HD video with embedded timecode via HDMI 1.4 or 3G/HD-SDI to external recording units.

        Upgraded from the FS100 and I'm not looking back. Slo-mo is great, feels more "solid" and in conjunction with the Odyssey 7Q and the new Slog setting it is a truly fantastic camera. Even regular HD recorded to internal media looks sharper.

          Comments about Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder (Body Only):

          I haven't used this specific camera yet because the rebate for the lens adapter takes 8-10 weeks to arrive, but I bought this because of my experience using the same model this summer. The controls for how powerful the camera is are quite simple. The quality of the video is amazing even at 960 Hz. I haven't used it for 4k, but am very happy with using it for biomechanical analysis using the high speed features. So much better than what I had been using in the past.

            Shot some slow motion on this puppy already and the client loved it! The faulty that this camera brings to film over a DSLR is a huge leap. Glad I made the investment.

              Comments about Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder (Body Only):

              I make videos for web, so I was looking for a really nice 1080p camera. This camera gives a really nice, sharp image (I think bc it has a 4k-ready sensor). Coming from a DSLR, I was never happy with the quality/softness of the wide-shots I'd take. This FS700 doesn't have that problem!The internal codec that the camera shoots on is pretty weak. It's tough to do any sort of color grading/compositing. I'd highly suggest getting an external recorder, like anything by Atomos, to bypass this issue.Not much to say about the slow-motion capabilities except for WOW. Really nice quality. Also doesn't require as much light as I had feared.Beware, once you add all the goodies that take this camera to the next level (external recorder, shotgun mic, big battery, etc) the rig can get pretty darn heavy. So be sure to invest in a nice shoulder rig since the screw on hand strap that comes with the camera is not an ideal way to get steady shots.Absolutely super satisfied with this camera. There was also an offer for a free metabones adapter when I bought the camera. The adapter works great and it lets me use my Canon lenses which is amazingly convenient!

                    I cant wait to get the 7Q to start shooting some 2 and 4K raw.

                        Great camera. Easy to use and with a rebate... Just do it. Very happy with the purchase.. And the 2k option for later on... what other camera out there can do that at this price range.

                          Comments about Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder (Body Only):

                          What other camera can you get in this price range that can shoot 4K Raw and up to 960fps or 240fps in 2K Raw?

                          nuff said?

                          Form factor is a bit weird, but i'll live with it. I have an ENG camera for clients who want eng. This is a cinema camera and the color palette is on the money when shooting 4:2:0 to an internal card. It can also record 4:2:2 to the cheapest recorder (blade) and 4:4:4:4 to a slightly more expensive recorder.

                          The super 35 chip is also key. Even at 4:2:0 in camera, the resolution is superb and when used on greenscreen in a shoot out with our other 4:2:0 camera it wins hands down!

                          that should do it for anyone who hasn't made up their mind yet.
