Sony FS7 II out and about in New York [footage]

Crazy Duck Productions/RedSharkModest grade: great images

Some modestly graded FS7 II footage reminds us what a great sensor this camera has.

Sony's new FS7 Mk II has the same sensor as its predecessor, which is a good thing, because it's pretty superb. It's remarkable that a sensor that first appeared four years ago in the F5 and F55 cameras is still completely current.

The new camera has improved ergonomics, based on feedback from customers, and an electronic continuously variable NDF, first seen in the FS5.

This footage is a refreshingly honest demonstration of the camera's ability to capture great images. It's modestly graded and simply looks clean and fresh.

Here are Sony's notes on the clip:

Published on 14 Nov 2016
Chuck Fishbein of Crazy Duck Productions got to test drive Sony's brand new FS7 II camcorder over the last few weeks. He was able to capture the essence of New York City on the latest addition to our FS Series Super 35mm professional family which features Electronic Variable ND technology, a lever lock type E-mount, and a new mechanical design for faster and easier set-up. The new camcorder also supports Sony’s α Mount System, which includes more than 70 lenses.
