SONY PXW FS7 RENTAL
The Sony PXW-FS7 has become the perfect option for TV shows and documentaries thanks to its ISO2000 high native sensitivity, its 14stop latitude, S-Log3 format and Super 35mm sensor. Ideal for any kind of moderate budget project. The camera's design shares many of the features its big sister (the F55) has: XAVC recording, a similar menu interface, and almost the same external accessories. It has a profesional audio recording system with very silent preamplifiers and dimmers; able to register two or four 24Bits and 48Khz audio channels. The Sony PXW-FS7 has two XLR inputs, which could be amplified to four with an input adaptor, and one internal mic.
The Sony PXW-FS7 Camera offers, as other digital film cameras, the possibility of recording in CUSTOM MODE (compressed color signal) or S-LOG3 and S-LOG2 (logarithmic curve). It also allows LUT monitoring through its SDI outputs, or in its LCD when "CINE EI MODE" is set. Any of these curve modes, even if you have to compress latitude for TV broadcast, adjusts whites and leaves them 90% lower to have a wider margen to manipulate images with high light situations (91-110%). Images filmed under these parameters appear underexposed and without contrast, but to compensate, there are many stops to manipulate low and high lights. To control light exposition, we'll use the waveform that measures filmed signal; this way, if we apply a LUT, the measured signal will show that LUT's values. Each LUT has its own exposition level, but generally mid-grey appears in the 41% curve's position.
The Sony PXW-FS7 camera has an established "native" ISO for each viewing curve that affects the mid-grey position (not the sensor's latitude), therefore the stops we can adjust. It's actually a simple concept: the more ISO, the more low light information the camera distinguishes. This makes us gain latitude in dark shadows, but because latitude has 14stops max., we'll lose information below when gaining information in the higher part of the curve. To sum up: the higher the ISO, the less stops over mid-grey we'll have available.
