2 quick questions which may be answered in the full series. Does the xdca allow for a slot type wireless receiver. It looks like it is thick enough that one could fit in there but I could be wrong. If I do end up buying a FS7 I would like to be able to use the SRC slot receivers not sony wireless.
And second is it possible to set the cards to record at 2 different resolutions without using an external recorder. I am thinking something like on a pro still camera setting slot 1 for raw and slot 2 for JPG fine. I am specifically thinking of a show I am working on right now where they are currently mastering in hd but it may be in the cards to go 4k in the future.
Yes, in the right hands it could certainly replace an EX3 and go way beyond it visually. But you need to spend a little money on decent lenses and have the skills and experience to make the camera sing. In the wrong hands, the FS7 can be a disaster. It is not a camera for beginners.
Douglas, to explain, I get a lot of requests for an EX3/EX1 type camera, which I rent for now, so PMW200 would be a good replacement AND I could shoot 4:2:2. Sometimes, my clients come with a wallet of SxS cards and I shoot on those and they take them home, so SxS is something I want to offer as media and format.
I am definitely excited about this FS7 as well, and I am seriously considering buying one along with an SxS card XDCAM.
