The AXS-R7 4K RAW Recorder from Sony attaches seamlessly to the Sony VENICE, PMW-F55, and PMW-F5 CineAlta cameras, speeding up the 4K production workflow. This 16-bit linear recorder offers up to 6K capture for the VENICE, and up to 4K120 and 4K60 RAW recording for the PMW-F55 and F5 cameras respectively. For shooting at higher frame rates, the recorder captures 2K RAW at up to 240 fps, for playback with 10x super slow motion. This recorder also offers 4K Raw/X-OCN cache recordings up to 30 seconds while in standby mode (approximate storage time at 23.98p).

This AXS-R7 recorder is compatible with the high-speed, slim S48 AXS series memory cards (available separately). It features dual memory card slots for extra security and simultaneous recording at rates up to 60p. Built to work in challenging field conditions, this recorder's rugged, all-metal casing has a sealed ventilation system that is dust- and splash-resist and attaches securely to the camera body. It is suitable for feature film, television commercial, reality, documentary, and wildlife cinematographers who require continuous, full-resolution 6K VENICE capture or 4K RAW recording from their F55 and F5 cameras.

X-OCN 4K/2K Capture Platform

In addition to the RAW format, the AXS-R7 recorder also supports the X-OCN (extended tonal range Original Camera Negative) capture format. This format has two recording modes; X-OCN ST (Standard) and X-OCN LT (Light). X-OCN ST captures 4K 24p at 660 Mb/s and X-OCN LT offers efficient data rates for smaller and more manageable files, reducing cost and improving workflow speed.

High Speed 4K RAW Capture

The AXSR7 recorder captures continuous 16-bit 4K RAW at up to 120 fps and 60 fps from the PMW-F55 and F5 cameras respectively. When you play back at 24p, it produces a dramatic 5x super slow motion effect. For shooting at higher frame rates, the recorder captures 2K RAW at up to 240 fps from the PMW-F55 and F5, for playback with 10x super slow motion. This portable memory recorder is not compatible with the HXRIFR5 interface unit.

30-Second RAW Cache Recording

The AXS-R7 recorder offers RAW/X-OCN cache recording at 23.98p for approximately up to 30 seconds while in standby mode, an important feature in documentary or wildlife production where capturing spontaneous action is required. The cache recording time varies based on the frame rate and recording mode.

From Power-Up to Record in 0.5 Seconds

When the unit is powered on by pushing the REC button, the 'Quick Rec' mode gets activated. This mode accelerates the power on process and the recorder starts recording in about 0.5 seconds.

Durable Dust- and Splash-Resistant Metal Design

The AXS-R7 has a rugged, durable metal body built to work in challenging field conditions. It is dust- and splash-resistant, with electric parts and the ventilation shaft separated by a metal filter to prevent the entry of dust and water. Connection between the camera and the recorder is secured through a large quick-release top bracket that accepts four widely spaced 1/4" screws.

Dual Memory Card Slots Support High-Speed Slim AXS A Series

The AXS-R7 recorder features dual memory card slots and works with sleek, high-capacity, high-speed AXSM A series S48 memory cards (1TB and 512GB), which are designed to support the write speeds required for 4K RAW/X-OCN 120 fps recordings (with the PMW-F55 ). It also works with the AXS A series S24 slim cards (blue trim, 1TB, 512GB, and 256GB capacity) for recording 4K RAW up to 60 fps and 2K RAW up to 240 fps. By using Sony's free RAW Viewer application, the recorded files can easily be played back and checked on a PC or MAC.
