Sony PXW-FS7 II Camcorder Announced, Price $10,000

Sony officially announced the new Sony PXW-FS7 II XDCAM Super 35 4K 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. The new FS7 II camcorder also supports Sony’s a Mount System, which includes more than 70 lenses. The new FS7 II camcorder is designed for long-form shooting and production applications, especially documentaries and independent filmmaking.

The FS7 II is planned to be available in January 2017 for an estimated street price of $10,000 (body only) and $13,000 for the camcorder with 18-110mm power zoom lens kit. And it is now available for pre-order at B&H.

Sony PXW-FS7 II Camcorder Highlights

  • Super 35-Sized CMOS Sensor
  • Locking Sony E-Mount
  • Integrated Electronic Variable ND Filter
  • DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) up to 59.94p
  • UHD up to 59.94 fps, HD up to 180 fps
  • XAVC-I/L, MPEG-2, XAVC up to 600 Mb/s
  • Supports Rec. 709 and BT-2020
  • Dual XQD Memory Card Slots
  • Dual HD/3G-SDI & HDMI Output
  • Ergonomic Handgrip with Camera Controls

Sony PXW-FS7 II incorporates a stronger locking E-mount that is fully compatible with E-Mount lenses, and supports all electronic connections. The locking mount reduces lens play, and allows you to use most 35mm lenses including PL, EF, Leica, and Nikon via optional adapters. This stronger E-mount is ideal for using heavier-long cine-zooms without the need for additional lens support.

Sony is also introducing an FS7 II kit model including a new E-mount, Super 35mm lens. The new lens, model SELP18110G, covers Super35mm and APSC sensors. The lens is compatible with Sony a Mount System cameras, including the α7 series interchangeable-lens cameras and professional Super 35mm 4K camcorders like Sony’s FS7 or FS5. Although perfectly suited for still image taking, filmmakers will fully appreciate the lens’ extended creative capabilities for shooting motion images.

Combined with a read speed of up to 440MB/s and write speed of up to 400MB/s, users can shoot for longer without needing to change media cards.
