Sony PXW-FS7 XDCam Super 35 camcorder
Sony's newest addition to its large sensor line is a complete camera system that delivers long-form recording capabilities with 4K resolution in a compact, hand-held design. The new PXW-FS7 XDCam Super 35 combines the flexibility of native E-mount technology, the recording efficiency of the XAVC-L codec, the transfer speed and intelligence of XQD memory cards, and comfortable ergonomics, including a new "smart grip." The camcorder is designed for a wide range of long-form shooting and production.
The PXW-FS7 is a native E-mount camcorder designed to give users maximum lens options and flexibility, smooth and silent iris, focus and zoom control, with auto exposure and SteadyShot stabilization. An extremely shallow, 18 mm flange-back distance enables the use of a range of 35mm lenses. Sony's optional LA-EA4 A-mount lens adaptor allows compatibility with a wide range of high-quality A-mount lenses.
The new camera will be available in two versions: body-only, and the PXW-FS7K version with a new servo zoom E-Mount lens FE PZ 28-135mm F4 G OSS (SELP28135G).
The new E-mount lens is the world's first 35mm full-frame interchangeable power zoom lens. It features a constant F/4 value, independent rings for iris, zoom and focus control, and is dust- and moisture-resistant. The SELP28135G has SteadyShot stabilization, minimum focus breathing and is enabled with Sony's new Super Sonic wave Motor (SSM) to reduce zoom noise while shooting.
