Absolutely Amazing Camera

 

The Sony FS700 is an extremely powerful camera on it's own. I used it for 2 years simply recording to the SD card onboard with good results. Th real power comes when you incorporate the Odyssey 7Q+ to the mix. The picture, colors and clarity are as...

"I would buy this product again and again"

 

I have just spend a couple of days with 3 of Sony's latest offerings. The new compact XDCAM camcorder, the PMW100, the diminutive NXCAM HXR-NX30 and the NEX-FS700. If you've managed to miss all the noise, the FS700 is yet another camcorder with a Super...

Great Cam with some caveats.

 

I basically am writing this review to echo the great things most people are saying, but I want to highlight that the "There are no cons" statement in the header of the BH reviews is misleading. Here are the cons:-This camera is really, really heavy and...

Nice quality!

 

Since I always shoot on sticks, this camera is great for me. The high resolution quality is wonderful. It does well even in dim light. I love having interchangeable lenses, but wish I could control the zoom electronically.

FS700R & Odyssey 7Q+

 

The best camera ever made, especially with the Odyssey 7Q+. Use a battery BP-U90 for the Odyssey 7Q+ and LP for Sony and recorded all day with a battery and of course 240fps in ProRes is magic.

Still Cutting Edge, For Now

 

I bought this specifically to go with an Odyssey 7Q+ I already owned. Together, they make a powerful duo with 4k ProRes at up to 120fps burst or 60fps continuous from the RAW 3G-SDI port. (Requires the RAW upgrade on the Odyssey.)

Unbelievable

 

This camera is incredible. From the quality of the image, to the easy to use interface, to the build quality, this camera delivers.

So Far So Good

 

Coming from still photography and DSLR-based video, the FS700's stellar output is a delight. And I'll join the rest of the people praising the high frame rates - 240fps is more than just a cool toy. It's already contributed some first-rate polish to...
