NEX-FS700R Full-HD Super Slow Motion NXCAM Camcorder is a new multi-purpose camcorder offering exceptional image quality ready to maximize your creative potential as a producer. Sony's NEX-FS700R is an interchangeable lens camcorder capable of capturing super slow motion images in Full HD at 240fps. It features an 11.6M Exmor Super35mm CMOS sensor, the latest large format sensor, boasting high-speed readout and outstanding sensitivity. And thanks to the E-mount system, as well as Sony lenses, using a mount adapter lets you attach various other interchangeable lenses for extra shooting flexibility. A motorized zoom lens that covers a focal range from 18mm to 200mm (35mm equivalent, 30.6-340mm) is also provided as standard. This lets you enjoy smooth zooming for expressive results that are difficult to achieve with manual operation. Other valuable features supporting professional video production include a built-in ND filter, a 3G HD-SDI out, an XLR audio input and simultaneous recording with a memory recording unit. Taking full advantage of the Exmor Super35mm CMOS sensor's capabilities, 4K recording is also possible with an optional interface and recorder. In addition to high-definition 4K recording, continuous shooting with 2K resolution at 240fps is possible with no time limit. The NEX-FS700R is a camcorder designed to provide everything professionals need for more creative freedom when shooting in the field.
Thanks to the high-speed image data reading characteristics of the new Exmor Super35 CMOS sensor, the NEX-FS700R can capture full-HD images (1920 x 1080) at 120 or 240 fps of burst recording in 60Hz shooting mode. Using playback at 24 fps, the camcorder can simply and beautifully realize a maximum quality of full-HD 10x super slow motion pictures. For very high-speed shooting, you can choose 480- and 960-fps recording at a reduced resolution, widening your creative options. As this table shows, the recording time depends on the frame rate. The high sensitivity and the low-noise shooting capability of the NEX-FS700R make high-speed shooting more convenient - you won't need additional, large-scale equipment in various shooting environments. The NEX-FS700R also enables Full HD (1920 Âž 1080) progressive slow and quick motion.
The NEX-FS700R is equipped with a newly developed 11.6M pixel Exmor Super35 CMOS sensor. This has a total of 4352 x 2662 pixels, and provides a future capability of 4K-size (4096 x 2160) motion picture shooting. Based on Exmor technology, this sensor has very high-speed image readout characteristics, such as a 240 fps reading in full-HD quality (1920 x 1080). Additionally, it has over 11M pixels in total, and the Exmor Super35 CMOS sensor realizes high sensitivity and a high signalto-noise ratio (S/N). This means that the NEX-FS700R can shoot in minimum illumination (as low as 0.28*1 lux).
The NEX-FS700R features Sony's E-mount Interchangeable Lens System. This accommodates the Super35mm-size sensor and is ideal for motion picture shooting because the mechanism is compact and silent. With this lens system, the camcorder can realize auto exposure and SteadyShot image stabilization during motion picture shooting. Sony's E-mount interchangeable lenses let you enjoy a level of creative freedom with legacy and current camcorders. All of these lenses feature precision-crafted optics with aspherical glass elements for compact high performance, and a circular iris mechanism for smooth background defocusing. The SELP18200 (E 18-200 mm F3.5-6.3 OSS) lens supplied with the NEX-FS700RH boasts 11x motorized zoom, a quiet AF motor for silent recording, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with an advanced Active mode that lets you take steady handheld shots while walking around. Thanks to the short 18 mm flange-back distance of E-mount interchangeable lenses, using a mount adaptor allows shooting with a wide range of existing lens resources. For example, with the optional A-mount adaptor, you can take advantage of the many available A-mount lenses. Sony's LA-EA2 A-mount lens adaptor allows you to use the wide range of high-quality alpha lenses and take advantage of the auto focus function for quicker and more convenient operation.
The NEX-FS700R can attach A-mount lens via A-mount to E-mount adaptor LA-EA2. Thanks to Translucent Mirror Technology on LA-EA2, auto focus and one push auto iris functions are available during motion picture shooting with most of A-mount lenses

AF sensor Light from the mirror is continuously transmitted to the precision TTL phase detection AF sensor for instant focus lock-on, even with fast-moving subjects.
With 3G-SDI output, external output is possible in the same format as the camcorder's selected recording mode. When using HDMI output, native progressive signals can be output without pull-down, which is convenient when using an external recorder. Simultaneous HD-SDI and HDMI 4:2:2 uncompressed signal output is also possible, enabling generation of time codes and REC control signals.
The NEX-FS700R can capture high-quality 8.3M still images with beautiful shallow depth-of-field, thanks to the Exmor Super35 CMOS sensor. The aspect ratio of the still image is selectable from 16:9 to 3:2. This camcorder also includes a face detection function and auto focus, to help ensure subjects are always kept in focus.
With its built-in, ultra-thin ND filters, the NEX-FS700R offers exceptional shallow depth-of-field on highlights. This means you can expand your shooting styles in every different shooting situation, without requiring external ND filter equipment. The newly designed ND filter wheel that rotates across the sensor like a turret. The wheel includes positions for Clear, 1/4 (2 Stop), 1/16 (4 Stop), and 1/64 (6 Stop). Recording to the directly mountable HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory unit allows continuous recording for over 10 hours without changing the recording media. Simultaneous recording using a memory card and the HXR-FMU128 is also possible for secure backup when shooting footage that cannot be re-taken.
