Sony ya venía anunciando que lanzaría una camara dedicada a codearse con la omnipresente Canon C300. Muchos hemos sido los que no hemos caído en los falsos encantos de este nuevo modelo de Canon que ha venido acompañada por un precio totalmente desorbitado para las características de la misma.
Echando de menos muchas prestaciones como mayor resolución, salida SDI a 10bits o slow motion en FullHD.
Y parece que Sony con la nueva NEX FS700 ha querido cubrir el hueco dejado por Canon y presentar una camara que cumple con todos esos requisitos. Un herramienta que se colocará a medio camino entre la FS100 y la F3, pero que a diferencia de esta última, cuenta con un altísimo frame rate, hasta 300fps en FullHD!! si, si, has oído bien, e incluso 1200fps a bajas resoluciones.
Además de estos grandes avances, hay que resaltar pequeñas pero importantes mejoras respecto a la FS100, su hermana pequeña, como la inclusión de salida SDI o filtros de densidad neutra.


A continuación, repasamos las principales cualidades de la Sony NEX FS700


-4K-ready: FullHD 1080 por ahora, pero expandible mediante firmware en el futuro.
Incluso llegando a RAW via SDI


-Super slow motion a 10x en full HD o 40x a menores resoluciones.


-Montura E de Sony, compatible con Alpha mediante adaptador


-Filtros ND incluidos.


-Interface 3G-SDI y HDMI


-50 Hz y 60 Hz seleccionable


-Magnificación para foco

Incredible slow motion capabilities

There are two features that really make the FS700 stand out: It can record 120 or 240 frames per second in 1080p in 8 or 16 second bursts, respectively. It’s insane and unheard-of in a camera in this price range. So far, the best we could get for a comparable amount of money was the FS700′s little brother, the FS100, which is able to record up to 60 fps in 1080p (in the US version, 50 in the EU version – though that is about to get irrelevant with a firmware update that will make it a world camera).
Here are the details on what kind of slow motion it can shoot:
240fps for 8 seconds in Full HD
120fps for 16 seconds in Full HD
960fps up to approx 19 seconds in a burst (1920×216 line skipped readout, interpolated in camera to 1920×1080)
1480fps up to approx 9 seconds in a burst (1920×432 line skipped readout, interpolated in camera to 1920×1080)
The LCD panel is 3.5″ 921K – same as the FS100


4K upgrade in the future

The second big thing about this camera is that it will be able to output 4K “Raw” through its 3G HD-SDI output in the future. It seems like not even sources within Sony know yet when exactly this will be available, nor what the recording device will be like or what its cost will be. But it sounds extremely intriguing.
To keep in line with the NEX series, the camera will record AVCHD 2.0 by default, to SD cards. It is a world camera, switchable from 50Hz to 60Hz, recording all variations of frame rates that we need (24/25/30/50/60) in 1080p.


ND filters & form factor

They enhanced a few things from the FS100, although the form factor is similar. The FS700 has 3 built-in ND steps at 1/8, 1/16 and 1/64. I was never a big fan of the FS100 form factor, but it seems they enhanced some of its biggest shortcomings, e.g. moving the XLR port from the back to the front. It however still has the little awkwardly designed viewfinder that can be taken of, and it features the same LCD screen as the FS100.
It shares the same E-mount lens system with the FS100. Now, with the availability of a several adapters allowing you to control the f-stop on the ubiquitous Canon EF lenses, the Sony cameras will gain a lot of popularity in no time without a doubt.

Pricing

Now this is exciting, according to Sony’s press release it will be below $10K, according to other sources even around $8-9K. This will truly make a big difference in the camera market, mainly because of its slow motion capabilities which put it out of reach of all the competitors, for now.
