Best Camcorder: Sony NEX-FS700U – 4K High Speed Camcorder
Now the NEX-FS700U is worth talking about, as a 4K camera with a Super CMOS 35mm sensor and optimization for high-speed shooting, we don't know where to start. We couldn't give this one the best camera at NAB without mentioning the E-mount that will accept a host of lenses. The total of 11.6MP is plenty for a camera that has high sensitivity, adds little noise and minimal aliasing. You may have expected built-in ND filters, but a wheel for it, why not?
Another innovative area is the handle which should see plenty of use with controls for expanded focus, auto iris and of course record. At the end of your production you'll be glad the FS700 has 3G HD-SDI and HDMI outputs and was shot at 960fps or more pedestrian 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p, or 24p.
The current design is ready for 4K, but simply waiting on a future firmware to be provided by Sony. The NEX-FS700 should be available in June for less than $10,000. [image:blog_post:12886]
