The Sony PXW-FS7K is an XDCAM Camera with a 28-135mm lens that shoots 4K Super 35mm using the XAVC codec. It has an ergonomic grip design that lets it fill a unique position between shoulder-mount and hand-held video cameras. As an E-Mount camera, the FS7 is compatible with all interchangeable Sony E-Mount lenses.

Sony E-Mount. The current generation of E-Mount lenses feature quiet operation and continuously variable zoom and iris. Carefully balancing optical quality, build quality, price, and weight; E-Mount lenses work hand in hand with digital video makers with a full range of manual operation and auto focus. Due in part to the shallow 18mm flange back distance, E-Mount cameras can be adapted to use PL, EF, MFT and other lenses using third party adapters.
10-bit 4:2:2 imagery at just 50 Mbps. Long-form projects shine with Sony's XAVC-L recording system. Here's the superior grayscale rendition of 10-bit recording, plus the uncompromised detail of 4:2:2 color—all at a budget-friendly 50 Mbps (HD mode). Other options include on-board 4K (3840 x 2160) recording, the same 113 Mbps XAVC-I recording as Sony's high-end F55, well-accepted MPEG HD 422, the Apple® ProRes™ codec (with future upgrade and extension unit, sold separately), and even outboard RAW recording (with extension unit and outboard recorder, sold separately).
Next-generation memory. Long-form programs need media that's both reliable and affordable. As specified by the CompactFlashAssociation, XQD™ memory cards score big on both accounts. Reliability comes from in-camera recovery. You get very low cost per minute compared to CFast™ cards. And robust communication between the camera and the card's controller enables read/write speeds up to a sizzling 600 Mbps.
