The Sony NEX-FS700R Super 35 Camcorder with 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Lens is an update to Sony's NEX-FS700U that enables 4K/2K 12-bit RAW output, S-Log2 recording capabilities, and features a Sony 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 PZ OSS E-mount lens. The NEX-FS700R retains all the features of the NEX-FS700U, including the native 4K sensor, Super Slow Motion recording, built-in ND filters, and CineGamma curves. 4K/2K RAW is recorded to the Sony AXS-R5 Recorder via the HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit, or to compatible third party recorders such as Convergent Design's Odyssey 7Q via the 3G/HD-SDI output. The HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit and external recorders are sold separately.

The Super 35mm sized sensor matches that of standard film and digital cinema cameras. It accepts interchangeable E-mount lenses, as well as a variety of 35mm SLR and DSLR lenses and professional cinema lenses with the use of optional third party adapters. On-board, the NEX-FS700R shoots full 1080p video in a range of frame rates up to 60p, with bursts of up to 240 fps in full HD resolution and 960fps at lower resolutions. When used with the HXR-IFR5 Interface Unit and AXS-R5 Recorder, you can record continuous 2K RAW at up to 240fps and 4K RAW at up to 60fps. 120fps 4K RAW recording is possible in 4 second bursts. This makes the NEX-FS700R a high-speed, 4K camera ready for professional shoots such as indie films, commercials, corporate videos, and music videos.

You have the option of recording AVCHD footage onto SD cards, Memory Stick Duo, or the HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory Unit via the FMU port. It can also output 4:2:2 uncompressed HD video via HDMI 1.4 or 3G/HD-SDI to an external recording unit. For enhanced exposure latitude, CineGamma curves, including S-Log2, and 800% 709 gamma curves are available. Other features include an ISO range of 320 to 64,000, a shotgun microphone with mount/carrying handle, dual XLR inputs for recording uncompressed, professional-level sound, a 3.5" LCD panel with detachable with viewfinder attachment, and built-in ND filters.

The included Sony 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 E-mount lens features an 11x zoom with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-300mm. It has a quiet AF motor and Optical Steady Shot image stabilization, and a three-step, motorized Adjustable Zoom Speed control. In addition to three variable zoom speeds, the lens supports constant speed zooming for slow, smooth zoom. Zoom can be controlled from the zoom lever on the NEX-FS700R and by the standard control on the lens barrel. -B&H Photo

Yup, not my favorite body of cameras. In fact I really don't like it. Its menu's and buttons are confusing and its dynamic range is far less than advertised.

But the FS700R shocked a lot of people by offering 4K at 12-bit RAW and shoots up to 960 fps!!! Which is nuts. So if you're in a controlled environment where you can expose correctly without having to clip highlights and shoot from sticks, this camera does a pretty good job. For me, I used it a lot on reality/doc shoots as a designated high-speed camera. Though cumbersome and a LCD screen on the back (why????), it helped us capture some amazing footage.


The NEX-FS700R is equipped with a new 4K Exmor Super 35 CMOS sensor (Total 11.6 million pixels) capable of cranking at up to 240 frames full HD resolution and up to 960 frames per second at reduced resolution. The high-speed readout chip is optimized for motion picture shooting, producing exceptional image fidelity with high sensitivity, low noise and minimal aliasing. The FS series camera’s E-mount is designed to accept virtually all 35mm SLR, DSLR and cinematography lenses, with the use of simple, inexpensive third party adapters (sold separately) without optical degradation. FS series camera owners are able to use their existing 35mm lenses and add more lenses without being limited to a particular lens brand or mount. The NEX-FS700R features full 2K RAW up to 240fps or 4K RAW up to 60fps output to Sony’s AXS-R5 RAW recorder. 2K and 4K recording is also available with compatible third party recorders. The NEXFS700R has an ISO range of 320 ~ 64,000. It features "S Log2" which allows the very wide latitude of the camera to be captures. The camera also features 800% 709 gamma curves, widely enhancing its exposure latitude and HD capability.

Depending on your needs, the modular design lets you add a matte box, rods, and viewfinder hood for shoulder-mount shooting, or lets you leave the camera stripped down for lightweight, handheld use. A top handle attaches with two screws and the right side of the FS700U features an industry-standard Arri rosette mount for adding handles and other accessories. 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch screw holes on the top and bottom provide support for a range of accessories. The tape-measure hook and image sensor position index help when measuring focus on set. There is also a Hold switch to prevent accidental setting changes during a shot.
