Sony’s PXW-FS7M2 XDCAM Super 35 Camera System with the 18-110mm Zoom Lens is a flexible 4K camera system. It allows you to capture images with cinematic depth of field with 14 Stops of dynamic range. The camera incorporates a stronger locking E-mount that is fully compatible with E-Mount lenses and supports all electronic connections, reducing lens play.
The 4K Super 35 EXMOR sensor features 14 Stops of latitude and a wide colour gamut. It offers a choice of XAVC or MPEG-2 codecs. The XAVC codec can be used for 4K and HD recording, while MPEG-2 is limited to HD recording. XAVC comes in two flavours, XAVC INTRA, and XAVC Long, allowing you to encode from HD to UHD using Intra-Frame or Long GOP compression with 10-bit 4:2:2 for HD and the choice of 10-bit 4:2:2 or 8-bit 4:2:0 for UHD. XAVC intra compression is very efficient, recording at modest bit rates and XAVC Long also substantially extends the recording time, while attaining very high quality and low noise.
The electronic variable ND system that provides a clear filter and 3 users definable presets. The variable ND can be adjusted to provide between 2 and 7 stops of ND. The camera can capture footage to optional on-board XQD media cards in either DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) or UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) at up to 59.94 fps or HD at up to 180 fps.
The camera records in your choice of XAVC-I, XAVC-L, or MPEG-2. However, MPEG-2 recording does not support the high data rates the camera is capable of generating when shooting in UHD and is limited to recording HD video only. It also incorporates Dual XQD media card slots that support simultaneous or relay recording. A bold handgrip provides control of many of the camera’s functions and features an adjustable length support arm.
