Sony is likely releasing a new camera today that will come in somewhere between their FS700 and FS7 cameras. They teased it with the image below … We are live streaming the event from the press conference which starts at 9 am CET / 8 am GMT. This post will also be live updated as the event happens with information and thoughts, please refresh this page frequently! – Things are almost ready to get started on the Sony #missinglink conference, we have team members both on the IBC floor and watching from a far to bring you the latest news. We’ll be updating this article as and when news is announced. – Alternatively follow us on twitter for the important bits! – And we’re live, the compere takes to the stage to introduce us to IBC 2015. – Katsunori Yamanouchi Vice President of Sony is on stage. – Adam Fry, Head of Media Solutions is now up top. talking about the wow factor of recent Sony 4K application. No meaty goods just yet. – He’s talking about the current 4K broadcast HDC-4300 and it’s involvement in the Champions League final this year. – Now onto the Sony FS7, new camera imminent… – PXW FS5 has been announced! we have a name – 0.8kg weight. – Electronic ND – Snap off handle like FS7 – Screen looks very similar to FS7 but more twist action – 240fps – It’ll also have S-log 3 and raw via output. – ohh another camera. A7S mark II – 4K internal as expected. and talk about high ISO performance, probably picking up where the A7R II lets off. – We’re moving ono a dynamic range monitor now. Look nice on a screen through a camera broadcasted and streamed on an iMac retina… – Here’s what the FS5 looks like – The weight of this could be great for gimbal work. – We’re onto OB trucks in the room, let’s talk more about the cameras for now. – As predicted the FS5 will sit right between the FS7 and FS700 for now. – No long adjustable arm like the FS7, but probably a good thing as it leaves third party companies to specialise specifically in that piece, the Sony attempt for the FS7 was pretty poor. – We’ll grab some more info on the A7S mark II from the floor, it was literally on stage for a minute whilst Sony struggled to take a picture of it (they forgot to turn it on :) ) – Some more pics: Here it is alongside the FS7 And that’s a wrap!
