    Z Cam E2 Cinematic Camera is US$33,880!

    The whispers I've heard is yes they will get it. And lots of newbie companies have got ProRes: AJA, BMD, etc

    Sony FS700... worthwhile investment in 2016?

    Is funny looking back at this thread, as only two years later it dropped even further! To half or even a third of the price!

    Yup, ProRes RAW is meant to be coming in the future for the Z Cam E2.

    Is a Sony FS700 still worth buying in late 2018??

    Shogun original on eBay for US$700 ish maybe Yup!! No other reason why I'd be interested in the FS700 I don't do paid camera work often enough to justify more expensive cameras anyway. I eat ONLY meat. (sometimes, once did a meat only diet for a month straight)

    Nah that was just a glitch where they had not yet properly updated all the details on their website before it went live. It was never ever going to be that price!

    C100 Mark ii in 2018

    EVERYONE is too skinny by American standards! 😉 I get feeling this thread is any moment now going to get as far off track as the BMPCC4K thread is....

    I don't normally eat bread from on a tripod?! (or eat bread ever)

    Meh, the FS5 is only 4K 8bit 420 so I wouldn't use that too much anyway. And the Shogun is cheap and does the core 4K FS raw functionality.

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    Uses a new sensor however, maybe extra cost there. Plus they will certainly sell less of them than the GH5, so GH5S R&D costs can't be spread around as much over as many units shipped.

    That is one way to look at it. "only 2x the price" Another way to see it: this is DOUBLE the price! Additionally quite a few of the FS5 2ndhand ones don't have the 4K raw upgrade, so that is another $500 cost. When spending any amount on a camera is probably a silly idea for me :-/ Given that I'm focused on sound now instead. But a $1.5K FS700 does tempt me....

    Indeed, they can be a good solid chunk cheaper than a FS7 which might cost 50% more. Even so, a FS5 is still going to cost some triple the amount of a FS700! Not sure I wish to pay that just for 4K 8bit internal, better ergonomics, and ambigously better colors. One of the pros in favor of the F3

    Did the KineMAX ever get ProRes? I'm fairly sure it didn't, but worth checking. https://www.newsshooter.com/2015/04/30/kinemax-6k-gets-8990-kit-price-will-gain-apple-prores-options-in-near-future/ Not a problem. I wouldn't use it. Just like I don't use the one on the F3. It is merely for navigating the menu, like the side panel on an Arri or an F5 etc I've used a FS700. Own a F3, and shot plenty with the FS7. Yeah Sony's menus are different, but that is ok! The extra complexity is not a bad thing, it is a feature, as it allows more capabilities with tonnes of options. And I feel once you own the camera you get used to it, and very very familiar with the menus. I wouldn't use internal, just like I don't with my F3. Unless it is for a very casual shoot. (like when I do some of my vlogs for YT with my F3)
  15. Years ago I posed the question: I ended up going ahead and buying it! In hindsight that was absolutely the right decision for me, no regrets! The old F3 to this day is still seeing usage! Just wrapped up a weekend of shooting with *two* of them side by side, for a feature film I'm being DoP for: But now I am starting to wonder, shall 2018 be the year I move on from it? What do people think of the Sony FS700 in the current marketplace as relevant in 2018 vs similar priced 4K competitors? Because with its price on eBay at around US$1.5K (or less! :-o ) it is extremely appealing, in fact I think I'd buy it asap if not for a couple of drawbacks: #1: no time code. #2: needs a large bulky power sucking 7" monitor/recorder. (I see Atomos will be shipping soon the Ninja V, if only they had a SDI version that might be *perfect* for me!) A secondhand URSA Mini 4K is around the same ish price as a FS700 + Recorder, but I really don't like the BMD 4K sensor. (Ditto doing a RED ONE MX for around the same price, no thanks!) A secondhand Canon C500 / Sony FS5 / URSA Mini 4.6K / Kinefinity KineMAX 6K are all other possible possibilities as well, but would come at a significant price leap vs a FS700.
