Sony is expanding its FS Series Super 35mm professional family with the addition of the new FS7 II camcorder. The new model builds on the original FS7’s strengths by adding advanced features including Electronic Variable ND technology, a lever lock type E-mount, and a new mechanical design for faster and easier set-up.

Since its introduction in 2014, the FS7 has become one of the most widely used cameras in a range of production applications, and the original model remains in the Sony line-up. The new FS7 II now gives creative professionals a broader range of creative tools, with new features all based on end user feedback.

The new FS7 II camcorder is designed for long-form shooting and production applications, especially fordocumentaries and independent filmmaking. Amongst the many enhancements outlined below, the FS7 II can also record in BT2020 colour space, hence making it ideal for today’s 4K broadcast productions.

FS7 II dramatically improves the experience of shooting with Sony’s ultimate documentary camcorder and 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.

Shoot and move. Handheld, shoulder-mount or suspended from a gimbal. FS7 II delivers the spectacular imagery you expect from Sony.

Freedom to shoot & move with:  Electronic Auto Variable NDShooting with FS7 II is a truly liberating experience – shoot and move with no need to worry about changing light conditions, no time wasted fiddling with exposure settings or changing filters. Sony’s unrivalled technology continuously adjusts the density of the electronic ND Filter without losing resolution while maintaining colour balance. See FS7 II in action for yourself to discover how Sony has transformed shooting on the move.

E mount flexibility extended:  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. Some larger lenses may no longer need a rig, while on those occasions where a rig is used – the process of switching lens can be simplified to save time. And of course, the E-mount can take cinema lenses and SLR lenses with a third party adaptor, as well as Sony’s E-mount and A-mount lenses. Whatever your lens requirements, FS7 II has you covered.

Shoulder mount comfort and control:  FS7 delivered a revolution in ergonomics, but we listened to cinematographers to make FS7 II even more comfortable to use, especially when operating for hours in the field. The number of assign buttons is increased from six to ten, all extra large, while the LCD monitor arm and mic holder can be swapped for left-eye shooting.  The telescoping arm offers even more settings, allowing the camcorder to be mounted closer to your body and you no longer need a tool for adjustments.  You can be sure the remarkable Sony smart grip is always at hand with all the key controls at your fingertips.

180 fps High Frame Rates:  High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow-motion ballet, a visual feast of elegant movement. The FS7 II delivers a maximum of 180 frames per second (fps) continuous shooting in Full HD. If your project plays at the cinematic 24 fps, you get beautiful 7.5x Super Slow Motion. There's no sacrifice in bit depth and no "windowing" of the sensor. So there's no crop factor, no loss in angle of view. The camera also performs Slow & Quick (S&Q) motion from 1 to 180 fps in 1 fps increments. So you can alter the narrative by selectively speeding up or slowing down the action.

Luxurious colour at money-saving bitrates: 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 150 Mbps. Or take advantage of the superior grayscale rendition of 10-bit High Definition, plus the uncompromised detail of 4:2:2 colour – all at budget-friendly data rates of 50, 35 or even 25 Mbps in HD mode. You can also record on-board 4K (4096x2160) at cinema standard 24p, 59.94p, 50p, 29.97p, 23.98p or 25p. The camera captures different colour spaces, including the wide ITU-R BT.2020 for Ultra High Definition.

Other formats include XAVC I (Intra) 4K at 600 Mbps, QFHD (3840x2160) and Full HD (1920x1080), plus the well-accepted MPEG HD 422, Apple ProRes 422 (with XDCA-FS7 extension unit, sold separately), and even outboard RAW recording (with XDCA-FS7 and outboard recorder, sold separately).
