Well it all depends on what you hope to accomplish. What do you want to do?

The FX7 shoos better in low light, but it only has 1/4″ image sensors. Other than that, they’re very similar according to B&H. I’d get the FX7 and buy a 35mm lens adapter if you want to do short films.

Using a 35mm lens adapter, such as the Letus Ultimate or the SGPro, will give you the shallow depth of field that you see in feature films. It allows for your subject to be in focus while the background is very out of focus. It’s something many independent filmmakers want when they shoot.
