Sony FS700 & BMD 2K Cinema Camera
The FS100 caught my attention probably not as much as it should have. But the FS700 is a head-turning, affordable beast of a camera. Now, the only thing that has me worried is… the quality of the 4K footage that it’s suppose to produce. I’m just a little confused as to why Sony didn’t just release it 4K out of the box, instead of 4K-ready. Just seems a little odd. There could very well be nothing to it. But still it’s questionable.
Ultimately every Filmmakers need is different. And if the FS700 holds true, it will be perfect for me because of the possiblilities it will give me with special f/x. Also, I just like having more options on hand, I’m one of those guys who over compensates :). I will hold out for the Sony FS700. But without a doubt BMDs Cinema Camera looks to be an amazing tool, certainly for any curious would-be filmmakers out there. I’m all for variety and these cameras exhibit exactly that.
