Sony PXW-FS7M2 / PXW-FS7M2K 4K Super 35mm Exmor® Sensor XDCAM Camcorders
Sony PXW-FS7M2 4K dramatically improves the experience of shooting with Sony’s ultimate documentary camcorder and is 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. Sony FS7 II delivers the spectacular imagery you expect from Sony.
E-mount flexibility extended
E-mount offers unsurpassed compatibility with both Sony and third-party lenses. And for Sony 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. 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, Sony FS7M2 has you covered.
180fps High Frame Rates
High Frame Rate shots can turn everyday actions into slow-motion ballet, a visual feast of elegant movement. The Sony PXW-FS7M2 delivers a maximum of 180 frames per second (fps) continuous shooting in Full HD. If your project plays at the cinematic 24fps, 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 and no loss in angle of view. The Sony PXW-FS7M2 camera also performs Slow and Quick (S&Q) motion from 1 to 180fps in 1fps increments. So, you can alter the narrative by selectively speeding up or slowing down the action.
Built-in electronic variable ND Filters
Originally developed for the PXW-FS5, Sony’s ground-breaking integration of electronic variable ND Filters into the body of a Super 35mm camcorder enables fast, agile shooting. Moving from shadowy interiors to bright sun-lit exteriors is no problem with the Sony FS7M2. Unlike conventional optical ND Filters, the electronic ND Filter on the Sony FS7 II can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly while ND Filters can be set to fully auto. You can even manually adjust depth of field using the iris lens ring, while relying on the Sony FS7 II to maintain constant exposure without changing gain nor shutter speed.
Sony FS7M2 is your perfect partner for fast-moving shoots in changeable environments.
4K Super 35 Exmor® sensor
When it comes to image sensors, size definitely matters. Sony’s Super 35 sensor delivers ‘bokeh’, the defocused backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field. A common technique for directing audience attention within the frame, shallow depth of field is far easier to achieve with a large sensor. Other things being equal, a bigger sensor also equates to better low-light sensitivity and lower image noise. And with bigger sensors, the field of view is wider for any given focal length lens.
With the FS7 II sensor, size is just the beginning.
