Capture cinematic, full-frame footage in PTZ form for broadcast use, reality shows, houses of worship, and live events and sports with the black FR7 Cinema Line PTZ Camera from Sony. This versatile camera features the unique ability to use interchangeable Sony E-mount lenses and is currently compatible with up to 70 E-mount lenses ranging from 12 to 1200mm. The large image sensor provides 15+ stops of dynamic range, captures up to UHD 4K120 video, offers live streaming, supports S-Cinetone, Cine EI, and MLUT looks for matching select Sony cameras, and enables you to create shallow depth-of-field bokeh effects.

The FR7 PTZ camera features flexible PoE++ (Power-over-Ethernet) installation, up to 100 preset positions, tally lamps, a built-in electronic ND filter, 5-pin XLR audio input, and multicamera functions like timecode and Genlock. Versatile control options include an IR remote, compatibility with controllers like the Sony RP-IP500, and a remote web app for tablets and computers.

Expressive 4K Imaging
