We thank our sponsor B&H who has made cinema5D’s news coverage of NAB 2012 possible. Get your gear through B&H to support this platform: www.bhphotovideo.com 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? Autofocus 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). Pre-order the Sony NEX-FS700:Read more

Guest post by: Nino Leitner Sony has just announced their new cinema camera, the Sony NEX-FS700, which is about to fill the gap between the FS100 and the F3 in Sony’s cinema camera line-up in Super 35mm cameras. It has a 11.6 million pixels sensor. Incredible slow motion capabilities There are two features that really make the FS700 stand out: It can record 120 or 240 frames per second in 1080p in 8 or 16 second bursts, respectively. It’s insane and unheard-of in a camera in this price range. So far, the best we could get for a comparable amount of money was the FS700′s little brother, the FS100, which is able to record up to 60 fps in 1080p (in the US version, 50 in the EU version – though that is about to get irrelevant with a firmware update that will make it a world camera).Read more
Now that Canon and Nikon had their fame it’s Sonys turn and maybe the successor to the not quite so successful NEX-FS100 that we saw around this time last year, will finally turn things around for good. [UPDATE]: FULL ARTICLE AND SPECS OF THE FS700 HERE EOSHD wrote: (rumor) At NAB 2012 next month, Sony will shake the digital cinema market to its core. Sony’s answer to the C300 is a 4K Super 35mm update to the FS100. It will be available in June for a provisional $8000. EOSHD‘s source further claims that the camera would have up to 960 fps and that the 4K would probably be recorded to an external device via 3G HD-SDI. It would also sport 3 internal ND’s (clearly visible now on the leaked images). Visit our new Sony NEX-FS700 subforum: More leaked pictures after the jump:Read more
