Sony unveils new PXW-FS7 compact 4K XDCAM camera with a Super 35 CMOS sensor
Sony’s newest addition to its large sensor line is a complete camera system that delivers long-form recording capabilities with 4K resolution in a compact, hand-held design.
The new PXW-FS7 XDCAM Super 35 camcorder combines the flexibility of native E-mount technology, the recording efficiency of the XAVC-L codec; the transfer speed and intelligence of XQD memory cards; and comfortable, handheld ergonomics, including a new “Smart Grip,” says Sony in a news release.
The new camcorder is designed for a range of long-form shooting and production applications, from “cinema verite”-style documentaries and reality TV to magazine shows, commercial and corporate applications.
The PXW-FS7 is a native E-mount camcorder designed to give users maximum lens options and flexibility, smooth and silent iris, focus and zoom control, with auto exposure and SteadyShot stabilization. An extremely shallow, 18 mm flange-back distance enables the use of a range of 35mm lenses. Sony’s optional LA-EA4 A-mount lens adaptor allows compatibility with a wide range of high-quality A-mount lenses.
The new camera will be available in two versions: body-only, and the PXW-FS7K version with a new servo zoom E-Mount lens FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS (SELP28135G).
