Sony NEX-FS700U cinema camera provides full HD quality at 120 and 240 frames per second in 16 or 8 second burst mode respectively, while its high sensitivity and low noise shooting capability makes super slow motion shooting more convenient. Featuring 4K “Exmor” Super 35 CMOS sensor (Total 11.6 million pixels) is optimized for motion picture shooting. This Full-HD video camera supports all SLR and DSLR 35mm lenses. FS series owners can use their existing lenses and add more lenses without being limited to brands or mounts.

HDMI connector outputs full HD 50p and 60p, while 3G HD-SDI can output native 23.98, 25, 29.97 progressive signals. This camera is 60/50Hz switchable to give shooters the freedom of working in any geographic region without being restricted to only PAL or NTSC recording. Users can save up to 99 camera profile settings on a memory card and copy the same setting to multiple cameras.

Sony NEX-FS700U features robust detachable top handle secured by a pair of screws to ensure secure mounting for heavy accessories. Key element of the handle is an “active grip” that features 4 buttons for commonly used functions. Its enlarged function buttons make operation easy even while wearing gloves. Camcorder’s design also includes anchor points for compatibility with third-party accessories

NEX-FS700U (body only) and NEX-FS700UK (with 18-200mm zoom lens) are schedule to be available in June at a suggested list price less than $10,000.
