We’ve seen some reviews about the new Sony FS700 lately, but this camera is too important to be taken lightly. Let’s see what we can add to that pool.

The Sony FS700 due to be released by mid July has created a lot of buzz and is one of the most anticipated new camera bodies right alongside the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.
As reported multiple times it comes with tons of features meant to satisfy the needs of the modern HDSLR and Large Sensor filmmaker not to mention an extremely competitive pricepoint ($8000) and the introduction of affordable slow motion (240fps).
Jody Eldred had a chance to play with the Sony NEX-FS700 and likes it (video above). We haven’t been able to work with it, but the specs certainly scream to our filmmaking hearts.
Jody seems to be sold on the FS700, are you?
One thing we tried was the autofocus feature that is enabled when you use the LA/EA2 adapter with Sony Alpha Lenses. It is the first time autofocus is actually usable on a large sensor camera and something we’ve been anticipating for a long time.
Sony uses phase detection technology via a beamsplitter within the adapter.
DOP David Leitner had a chance to test this feature during and prior to NAB. Check out his extremely well made review on the matter (video below).
