4 Days In Depth Look With The Sony NEX-FS700
I know that I’ve posted other reviews about the FS700, but with this camera being a less expensive alternative to other high frame rate camera, the more reviews I see the more excited I get about it. Andrew Young from Archipelago Films was also able to get his hands on a pre-production copy of the Sony NEX-FS700 for four days.
Taking footage of mostly his family and some amazing footage of Puerto Rico’s beaches, Andrew goes over most of the features including his likes and dislikes, how versatile the camera is with different lens mounts, how easy it is to operate and the different frame rates. He also demonstrates how well it works with auto-focus pull on the Sony Alpha lenses.
One of his biggest points in the review is how lightweight the camera is. It can easily be manned alone with a simple pack of lenses and a light tripod. This is especially useful for fast-paced productions or filming in areas with rough terrain. While I myself am not a videographer (yet), this makes me extremely interested in finally making the jump into video.
