The Confusing New Sony FS7 Mark II


This video camera is more like a FS7+ than it is a Mark II.  There’s really no big changes but some useful ergonomic improvements that will make this $10,000 camera interesting to a few people.

New features of note:

  • Electronic variable ND (think Sony FS5)
  • Rec. 2020 Colour Spcae
  • Better Ergonomics/physical design/controls
  • Lever lock E Mount

Pros will appreciate some of these improvements but really we were hoping for a better sensor or other technological improvements that just were not provided.  This may push down prices on the FS7 which would be good.  The sensor, autofocus and video codecs remain identical.
