4K Super 35 Sensor
We all know that the size does matters when we are talking about sensors. With the Super 35 sensor of the Sony you could defocused backgrounds and deliver bokehs. The use of the shallow depth of field for directing the atention of the viewers is a resource you could easy use with this sensor.This is something easier with a longer sensor, like the fact that a bigger sensor equates to better low-light sensitivity and lower image noise or that the field of view is wider for any given focal length lens.
High Frame Rates up to 180 fps
The FS7 provides continuous recording at Full HD at frame rates of up to 180 fps. When you play back at 23.98p, you’ll enjoy extraordinary Super Slow Motion of up to 7.5x. Compared to burst mode, the continuous recording of the FS7 reduces mistimed shots and extra takes. This camera also provides Slow & Quick motion from 1 fps to 180 fps, in 1 fps increments. This enables time lapse effects to make the clouds race by or flowers bloom before your eyes. And for even higher frame rates, you can attach the XDCA-FS7 extension unit and connect an outboard recorder, both sold separately, for 2K RAW recording at up to 240 fps. This creates 10x Super Slow Motion when played at 23.98p.
A built-in Neutral Density (ND) filter wheel includes positions for Clear, 1/4 (2 Stops), 1/16 (4 Stops), and 1/64 (6 Stops).
The FS7 takes advantage of Sony’s flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the HVL-LBPC light.
4-Channel Audio Inputs and Recording
The FS7offers 4-channel audio input. In situations such as interviews, this function enables the simultaneous use of an external microphone for recording ambient sounds, the built-in microphone for voice recordings by the operator, and two optional UWP Series wireless microphones for voice of interviewer and interviewee. In addition, by the use of an optional XLR adapter “XLR-K2M” or ”XLR-K1M” which provides additional 2 XLR inputs, possible applications are further expanded.
