HD 422 50 Mbps recordings ideal for a wide range of shooting conditions with XAVC future-proofing

An evolution of Sony's industry leading PMW-EX3, the PMW-300K1 is able to record 50Mbps HD material in MPEG-2 HD422, meeting broadcast standards around the world, including the European Broadcasting Union's (EBU) requirements on HD broadcast acquisition for long form programme making. The high bit rate ensures excellent capture of fast moving objects, while its chroma subsampling feature is perfect for a wide range of video encoding areas such as VFX and green screen applications. The camcorder can also be upgraded in the future to support Sony's revolutionary XAVC codec, extending the lifecycle of the product to ensure maximum return on investment.


  • 4K “Exmor” Super 35 CMOS sensor

    The NEX-FS700R camcorder uses a 4K “Exmor” Super 35 CMOS sensor (total 11.6 million pixels). This high-speed readout chip is optimised for motion picture shooting, giving high sensitivity, low noise and minimal aliasing.

  • 4K RAW and 2K RAW output on AXS memory with HXR-IFR5 adaptor

    The NEX-FS700R can capture stunning 4K RAW movie footage with the AXS-R5 RAW recorder over 3G HD-SDI using the HXR-IFR5 interface unit. The 4K RAW (4096 x 2160) format output from the NEX-FS700R is in 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p and 59.94p. After recording onto the Access Memory Card, the 4K workflow is the same as the PMW-F5.

  • Superb dynamic range with S-Log2 and 709 Gamma curves available

    The NEX-FS700R allows users to have up to 1300% dynamic range (S-Log2) and 800% (709 Gamma).

  • Synchronised recordings via HD-SDI and HDMI

    In addition, HD-SDI Remote Interface protocol is embedded in the HD-SDI signal. This allows users to trigger a compatible external recorder in synchronisation with the NEX-FS700R. Also, HDMI embeds the recording status signal, which allows an external HDMI recorder to follow the NEX-FS700R recording operation.

  • 2K RAW output recordings

    The NEX-FS700R is also able to output 2K RAW (2048 x 1080) format in 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p and 59.94p.

  • High Frame Rate 2K/4K RAW recordings

    The NEX-FS700R can capture 4K RAW at High Frame Rate (HFR) of 100 frames per second (fps) or 120 fps for approximately 4 seconds, and 2K RAW at 100 fps, 120 fps, 200 fps or 240 fps continuous recording, with the only limitation of memory capacity and/or battery life.

  • Super slow motion at 10x at full HD or 40x at lower resolutions

    Incredible super slow motion capability of up to 10x (240 fps) slow motion at full HD resolution or up to 40x (960 fps) slow motion at a reduced vertical resolution up-converted into Full HD, giving you creative options that were once only available with specialist high-end equipment.

  • E-mount interchangeable lenses offer a wide choice of lenses

    The E-mount interchangeable lens system utilises an extremely short flange back distance allowing you to use a huge array of lenses via a range of adaptors giving you almost unlimited creative options. With adaptors, more than 35 lens systems are available thanks to the E-mount.

  • Additional A-mount lenses available

    The Sony LA-EA2 and LA-EA3 A-mount lens adaptors allow you to use the wide range of high quality alpha lenses and take advantage of the auto focus function for quicker, more convenient operation.

  • Built-in ND filters

    The NEX-FS700R features built-in, ultra-thin ND filters, offering exceptional shallow depth-of-field on highlights. It also means less accessories to manage as no external ND filters are required.

  • 3G-SDI interface and HDMI

    A 3G-SDI output enables easy integration with highest quality recording formats.

  • Exceptional ergonomics

    The NEX-FS700R has a refined ergonomic design with a robust detachable handle and grip.

  • Switchable 50 Hz and 60 Hz shooting

    The NEX-FS700R is switchable between 50 Hz and 60Hz to allow 24p shooting in PAL areas and no PAL/NTSC limitations.

  • Selectable magnification and positioning of expanded focus

    Expanded focus improvement allowing 4x and 8x magnification and a moveable area of expansion for easy focusing with shallow depth of field.

  • Camera profile settings storage on memory card

    Up to 99 camera profile settings can be stored, allowing rapid adaptation to multiple shooting environments without time wasted adjusting parameters. Settings are also easily shared in multi-camera productions.
