Sony has registered a new cinema camera with the Korean Radio Research Agency prior to its official launch. The NEX-FS700R is expected to launch in the coming days or weeks and will presumably be based around the NEX-FS700 – either a successor product or a sibling product.
The specs of the FS700R remain undisclosed at this point; however, given the recent introduction of the Sony RX1R, the “R” designation could mean that the FS700 would forego an antialiasing filter like the RX1R. Of course, such a feature doesn’t make as much sense for a cinema camera as it does a high resolution stills camera. Additionally, looking at other past Sony camera models, an “R” designation has simply been a new model of a particular line (e.g., the Sony NEX-5R).
We’ll have more on the Sony NEX-FS700R as its launch day approaches.
