Improving on the already popular Mark I FS7, the new PXW-FS7M2 carries several useful upgrades, including BT.2020 colour space, a more secure lever-locking E Mount and internal variable ND filtration (with custom presets). The camera body also includes other enhancements, such as a redesigned EVF mount with square rods, better lever locks and a better-designed loupe.

Sony's new PXW-FS7 MKII features the same 4K Super 35mm CMOS sensor as its predecessor, with support for shooting in 4K up to 60p or Full HD at rates up to 180 fps.

This new Sony camera also continues the exciting trend of utilising internal 4k recording, helping to save weight and removing the need for separate expensive 4K recording media.

Selectable recording formats include Sony's own lower compression XAVC codec, which supports 4K 50p, HD 50/60p in 4:2:2 10-bit recording, as well as the common MPEG-2 HD 422 format used by many broadcast stations around the world.

The camera is designed for a Sony E Mount, which can be converted to EF mount using the familiar Sony Metabones adapter, allowing you to use standard L Series lenses as well as EF Mount Cinema Primes. The option for a PL mount is also available.

Sony FS7 Vs. Canon C300:
Designed better ergonomically
Less top-heavy design
More flexible codecs for post workflow
Higher dynamic range of 14 stops lattitude
4K vs 1080p resolution
180fps (1080p) vs 60fps (1080k)
