The Sony FS7 has quickly penetrated the TV & video production industry over the past few years and for good reasons too! It’s an incredibly versatile camera that produces crisp 4k images which a lot of bells and whistles.
This camera 4k image produces stunning images along with 180p Full HD 150fps slow motion. These are captured through a super 35mm sensor which enables film and photography lenses to be used, which, in turn produces that shallow depth of field look (with the background blurry and the subject in crisp focus).
The sensor is capable of capturing 14 stops of dynamic range which allows for more detail in the image to be captured when there are a lot of highlights and shadows in the picture (bright white clouds and dark shadows in the foreground for example).
If you have time and budget to grade the footage, i can shoot the video in a flat cinema profile such as S-log2 or S-log3 which allows for even more dynamic range. If you would like the picture coming out of the camera to be colourful and ready for broadcast or upload to youtube, i can ‘bake-in’ the colours as i record the video which still produces amazing pictures.
I have written a detailed article on what’s it’s like on set using the Sony FS7.
