NEX-FS100 interchangeable lens camcorder featuring a
Super 35mm sensor.
For even more creative flexibility, the NEX-FS100 also enables extended continuous recording and
simultaneous recording of HD video footage for instant backup with an HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory Unit.
The sensor also features the optimum number of effective pixels for shooting HD
moving images. At a high 50fps in all-pixel scan mode, this allows images to be
captured with less color aliasing, jaggedness and rolling shutter than regular
DSLR cameras, while providing the sensitivity to shoot at a minimum illumination of
. Another advantage of "Exmor" technology is minimal noise when shooting
low-light scenes.Lens choices on this camera are a nightmare, almost exclusively because of the ND filter situation. The FS100 is a low-light champion, even more so than your DSLR and this is great. Except that, with no built-in ND filters you’re now even more stumped than ever when trying to work out what lens to use with your new box. You’re almost press-ganged into buying a matte box and filters to use the damn thing. Or you just have to plump for the kit lens and live with it. ND is proving to be an all mighty pain in the ass.
Have to think that these aren't selling well these days with the buzz surrounding 4K acquisition... it's a great camera, and I believe (in the right hands) it can be better than a 5DMk3. Doesn't shoot RAW, but the NEX adapters do offer HUGE amounts of flexibility - even more so than M4/3.
I was going to purchase one of these a few months back, but I simply would not have used it enough for shooting over my current gear and couldn't justify the price tag. Will think about it again, however likely will pass. My next camera will likely be 4K capable, even if just for better 720 and/or 1080 final output purposes.
Would pick this up over a used one for sure... and now the used market should drop in price dramatically as well, I would think. Likely best to just hold onto them if anyone has one - it's a great "B-cam" even when paired with an FS700.
