Sony NEX-FS700 First Impressions Review
An initial look at Sony's $10,000 NEX-FS700
The Sony NEX-FS700 has a lot of things going for it. It can record slow-motion Full HD video at 120 or 240fps, or it can record up to 960fps at lower resolutions. It has an E-Mount lens system, which means it works with Sony's lot of NEX lenses, or you can expand its compatibility with the purchase of a lens adapter. The camcorder is also "4K-ready", which means Sony will announce a firmware upgrade at some point in the future that will enable the FS700 to output 4K video via its 3G HD-SDI terminal.
The NEX-FS700 is the clear successor to the Sony NEX-FS100, but the new model truly ups the ante. Sony also upped the price, as the FS700 is expected to retail for around $10,000 dollars. Last year's NEX-FS100, on the other hand, can be found at roughly half that price.
