Sony PXW-FS7 XDCAM 4K Super 35mm Video Camera FEATURES


When it comes to image sensors, size definitely matters. Sony's Super 35 sensor delivers bokeh' - the defocused backgrounds made possible by shallow depth of field. A common technique for directing audience attention within the frame, shallow depth of field is far easier to achieve with a large sensor. Other things being equal, a bigger sensor also equates to better low-light sensitivity and lower image noise, and with bigger sensors, the field of view is wider for any given focal length lens. With the FS7 sensor, size is just the beginning.

14 stops of exposure latitude deliver powerful grayscale rendition without crushing shadow detail or blowing out highlight detail. ISO 2,000 sensitivity enables you to shoot well after sunset, without tons of lighting and grip. The sensor incorporates 11.6 million total pixels and 8.8 million effective pixels to deliver full 4K resolution. Even if you're delivering in HD, your recordings will capture detail and image texture that HD sensors cannot see. Sony Exmor CMOS design makes for extremely fast readout, contributing to frame rates of up to 180 fps and minimised image skew.

Neutral Density Filters

You don't need a matte box to get the advantages of shallow depth of field, even in exterior day shoots. A built-in Neutral Density (ND) filter wheel includes positions for Clear, 1/4 (2 Stops), 1/16 (4 Stops), and 1/64 (6 Stops).

Continuous recording and S&Q

From freestyle skiing, to water sprays, to pyrotechnics, High Frame Rates underscore the beauty and drama of everyday motion. That's why the FS7 provides continuous recording at Full HD at frame rates of up to 180fps. When you play back at 23.98p, you'll enjoy extraordinary Super Slow Motion of up to 7.5x. Compared to burst mode, the continuous recording of the FS7 reduces mistimed shots and extra takes. 

The camera also provides Slow & Quick motion from 1 fps to 180 fps, in 1 fps increments. This enables time lapse effects to make the clouds race by or flowers bloom before your eyes. 


To keep the PXW-FS7 small, light, and easily hand-holdable, Sony engineers reserved some special functions for an outboard module - the XDCA-FS7 extension unit (sold separately). The unit adds powerful capabilities:

To preserve the maximum in colour, contrast, and resolution, the XDCA-FS7 enables RAW recording when connected to outboard recorders. It supports the vivid colour of 12-bit linear RAW at either 4K or 2K resolution. Use a single BNC cable to connect the XDCA-FS7 to Sony's HXR-IFR5 interface unit and AXS-R5 recorder (both sold separately). The interface also allows the use of compatible third-party external recorders, such as the ATOMOS Shogun and the Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q, equipped with the Sony FS RAW option. Even when you record outboard RAW, you can still record time code-synchronised Full HD on-board - a convenient proxy for offline editing.

Sony understands that some workflows are committed to the Apple ProRes 422 codec. That's why the XDCA-FS7 supports Apple ProRes 422 and Apple ProRes 422 HQ (1920x1080) recording to an XQD card in the camera.

The XDCA-FS7 also provides Genlock and Timecode In/Out for multi-camera shoots.

Ergonomic, durable design

A handheld camera should be able to get you into tight places. To work in your lap. To move with the talent. To shoot high and low angles with equal facility. And a handheld camera should function beautifully against your chest or shoulder, comfortably steadied by your right hand. The Sony FS7 does all of this, and more. The built-in shoulder pad makes for stable shoulder-style shooting, while the curved back sits comfortably against your chest.

Another key to handheld comfort is the telescoping arm that holds the smart grip. Adjust the arm length by simply turning a knob. Another knob at the joint adjusts angle, so you can instantly adapt the arm to suit your physique and your shooting position.

Sony designed the PXW-FS7 to stand up to the rigors of real-world shooting. The frame is magnesium, for high rigidity and light weight. Buttons, dials, and other parts are sealed to prevent dust and water spray from entering. 

Cooling is an urgent requirement in a high-speed 4K camera. That's why Sony engineers developed special heat pipes that whisk heat away from the electronics and into a remote heat sink. An air duct cools the heat sink, while isolating the electrical components from exposure to dust and water spray.

A pair of heat pipes draws heat away from the electrical components and into the cooling duct. The duct dissipates accumulated heat, while its sealed design prevents the entry of dust, dirt and water spray.

Multi-Interface Shoe

The FS7 takes advantage of Sony's flexible Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, which provides power, signal connections, and coordinated on/off switching to compatible Sony accessories. For example, you can connect and control Sony wireless microphone systems such as the UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 or attach the Sony HVL-LBPC light.*

*Please note, accessories are sold separately. The Sony HVL-LBPC light does not draw power from the FS7.

Audio recording

The FS7 supports 4-channel audio input. In applications such as interviews, this function enables the simultaneous use of an external microphone for recording ambient sounds, the built-in microphone for voice memos by the operator, and two optional UWP Series wireless microphones for the voices of interviewer and interviewee. In addition, by the use of optional XLR adapters, such as the Sony XLR-K2M or Sony XLR-K1M which provide 2 additional XLR inputs, possible applications are further expanded.
