Sony is expanding its FS Series Super 35mm professional family with the addition of the new PXW-FS7M2 Without Lens and PXW-FS7M2K With Lens camcorder. The new model builds on the original FS7's strengths by adding advanced features including Electronic Variable ND technology, a lever lock type E-mount, and a new mechanical design for faster and easier set-up. The new FS7 II camcorder also supports Sony's α Mount System, which includes more than 70 lenses.
Since its introduction in 2014, the PXW-FS7 has become one of the most widely used cameras in a range of production applications, and the original FS7 model remains in the Sony line-up. The new PXW-FS7 II now gives creative professionals a broader range of creative tools, with new features all based on end user feedback.
The new FS7 II camcorder is designed for long-form shooting and production applications, especially documentaries and independent filmmaking. Sony is also introducing an FS7 II kit model which includes a new E-mount, Super 35mm lens, model SELP18110G, covering Super35mm and APSC sensors.
"The PXW-FS7 II features state of the art, Sony variable ND technology and a robust locking E‑Mount," said Juan Martinez, senior product manager, professional digital imaging, Sony Electronics. "Extensive enhancements to the VF support system enables super-fast and secure viewfinder repositioning, while retaining the Zen-like simplicity, flexibility and comfort of the FS7's 'multi-award winning' industrial design."
Sony is also introducing an FS7 II kit model including a new E-mount, Super 35mm lens. The new lens, model SELP18110G, covers Super35mm and APSC sensors. Compact and lightweight – 2.4 lbs (1.1Kg) – with an 18 to 110 focal range (6x zoom) it uses a new fully mechanical/servo zoom switchable system, capable of snap zooms and entirely devoid of lag. The focal range is optimized for Super 35 and APS-C sensors.
The lens is compatible with Sony α Mount System cameras, including the α7 series interchangeable-lens cameras and professional Super 35mm 4K camcorders like Sony's FS7 or FS5. Although perfectly suited for still image taking, filmmakers will fully appreciate the lens' extended creative capabilities for shooting motion images.
The lens benefits from Sony's Smooth Motion Optics (SMO) design, which is developed to optimize performance during motion image capture. This lens design eliminates undesirable characteristics and artifacts that do not affect still image capture, but can severely limit a lens' usefulness for motion shooting, such as:
• Ramping: F stop gradually diminishes when zooming tight. • Not holding focus while zooming. • Breathing (angle of view variation while focusing). • Optical axis shift (image moves in the frame while zooming).
