Who It’s For:

The Sony NEX FS700 is a professional video camera made for videographers who need a flexible camera with lots of features in a comparatively small package.

What We Like: 

Speed: The FS700 can shoot up to 240fps at full HD and 960fps at lower resolution.

4K Ready: A Firmware upgrade in the future will allow the camera to shoot 4K video.

Lens Compatibility: The E Mount Lens system means that all of Sony’s NEX lenses are compatible, and lens adapters are available for other lens systems.

Price: The 10K price tag is cheaper than most other 4K cameras.

Built In ND Filters: The camera has built in 2, 4 and 6 stop ND filters.

Flexible Storage: Stores either to SD cards or Sony’s HXR-FMU128 flash memory unit.

What We Don’t:

4K Delay: If you get this camera now, you’ll have to wait to be able to utilize full 4K functionality.

    I don’t own a fs700 but don’t believe Sony’s lies i do own a HXR-Nx5u and Sony promised a 60p update at and many people bought the cam still awaiting that update 3years later….. thats just a hook don’t bite… Sony will deliver 4k but never in this camera they will just bring out another one with this feature and you will have to buy that

    I recently wrapped up shooting a short film on an Fs700. Footage looks quite contrast-y and overall it is a simple enough camera to use. HOWEVER, aperture and white balance are adjusted through a menu feature only, rather than a dial or switch on most other cameras. The ergo’s suck on the thing and without a shoulder rig with a display, handheld work is uncomfortable and clumsy at best. The focus/ zoom rings on the kit lens are also in reverse position to many other cameras – a small niggle but it does get frustrating.

    All in all it is a decent camera, but getting your rushes at the end of the shoot is more exciting than using it. And given the price tag, it is still a smarter buy to go for something like the BMCC.

    I own the fs700 for almost a year. I love the camera. It took som time getting used. I almost always use it handheld. If you need smooth slide like pan just record in 240 fps.
