About the Sony NEX-FS100U

The NEX-FS100U super 35mm sensor camcorder is Sony's first fully professional large-sensor video camera. Hot on the heels of the PMW-F3, this compact, highly modular camera uses the same S35-size CMOS sensor as the F3. Unlike smaller, broadcast-style sensors or the larger "full-frame" sensors of some DSLRs, the NEX-FS100's imaging area matches that of standard Hollywood film cameras, providing complete compatibility with cine-style film lenses (via optional adapters) as well as any of Sony's E-Mount lenses.

The sensor's large size offers a variety of other advantages, including increased control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light, lower image noise, and an exceptional dynamic range. Able to shoot full 1080p video in a range of frame rates up to 60p, the FS100 provides the option of recording 28Mbps AVCHD footage onto SD or Memory Stick media, or it can output uncompressed 4:2:2 video (with embedded timecode) and RGB via HDMI 1.4 to an external recording unit. Simultaneous recording to both is also possible when instant backup is called for.

There's no stinting on audio, either, as the camera includes not only a shotgun microphone with mount/carrying handle, but dual XLR inputs for recording uncompressed, professional-level sound from an external source. Other features--such as a rotating 3.5" XtraFine LCD panel with detachable viewfinder, SD recording, GPS geotagging, and slow shutter--make the FS100 an impressive companion to other cameras in the S35 line.

Not only will it intercut perfectly with the F3, F35, or SRW-9000PL as a 2nd unit or B camera, it can stand on its own in applications as diverse as indie film, commercials, music promos, education, and wedding videos.

Sony NEX-FS100U Features

  • Exmor Super 35 CMOS Sensor for Shooting Motion Pictures: Equipped with a large CMOS sensor equivalent in size to Super 35mm film, the NEX-FS100 enables shooting with the same creative depth of field as the PMW-F3
  • E-Mount Interchangeable Lens System: Sony's E-mount interchangeable lenses let you enjoy a level of creative unimaginable with camcorders. All feature precision-crafted optics with aspherical glass elements for compact high performance, and circular iris mechanisms for smooth background defocusing
  • Modular Design for a Variety of Shooting Styles: Featuring a compact, lightweight body with detachable grip, handle, and viewfinder, the NEX-FS100 is ideal for a wide range of shooting situations
  • XtraFine LCD Panel: Located on the optical axis, the 3.5"-type XtraFine LCD panel enables easier, more intuitive framing, especially during handheld shooting. And the LCD panel can be rotated for stress-free operation when shooting low-angle scenes and digital signage footage
  • 1920 x 1080P Slow & Quick Motion: Recording images at a different frame rate from that used for playback provides the extra versatility of slow and quick motion shooting. The NEX-FS100 enables Full HD (1920 x 1080) progressive slow and quick motion
  • Hybrid Recording: Recording to the directly mountable HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory unit allows continuous recording for over 10 hours without changing the recording medium. Simultaneous recording using memory cards and other media is possible for secure backup when shooting footage that can't be reshot
  • NXCAM Recording Format: Like other NXCAM series cameras, the NEX-FS100 uses the well established AVCHD recording format supported by a wide range of nonlinear editing systems. Better still, it's ready to shoot with a maximum frame rate of 1920 x 1080/60p (28Mbps) for even higher quality recording
  • Uncompressed 4:2:2 Output & RGB Output via HDMI 1.4: When shooting, the NEX-FS100 can output uncompressed 4:2:2 video with embedded timecode, as well as RGB via HDMI 1.4, onto external media recording units like an HDD
  • Geotagging with Built-in GPS Receiver: A built-in GPS receiver makes NEX-FS100 an ideal choice for professional videographers. The receiver gives you ability to "geo-tag" shooting locations making it easy if you need to return to the same location or to create a log when surveying remote locations
  • Picture Profile: Six picture profile settings for different shooting conditions are provided as default settings. Selecting a picture profile for a particular scene offers an easy way to creatively change your shoot
  • Last Scene Review: Press a single button to immediately review the last recorded scene
  • Expanded Focus: Press a button and this enlarges the centre of the displayed image by 2x, a particularly useful feature when making critical focusing adjustments
  • Histogram: Onscreen display of a histogram enables easier exposure adjustment. The histogram also shows the point where the zebra pattern appears (the zebra point). This enables confirmation of overall brightness distribution and the brightness level set with the zebra function
  • Peaking: A peaking function draws a defined line around the subject displayed in the LCD monitor and viewfinder. Peaking sensitivity and color (red, white, yellow) can be selected to enable more precise focusing
  • Markers: Center, aspect, safety zone, guide frame and other markers can be displayed on the LCD
