The Sony PXW-FS7 Mark II

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.

About The Sony PXW-FS7 Mark II

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.
