I am selling my Sony FS700. The camera has visible signs of use, mostly on the lcd screen, but everything is in fully working order. I bought it used two years ago, and I sent it to the official Sony service in France for update. They cleaned it up and updated camera to the RAW firmware 3.0, and it was as good as new. The first owner was a professional who used it mostly for slow motions, and he took really good care of the little thing. Now it has 610 working hours, half of that is mine. I used it on several commercials and documentaries, mostly with Atomos Shogun, and it was beauty. Here is an example:
The reason to sell: I have bought Panasonic Eva-1. Eva is superior camera in many regards, but the difference in picture quality is smaller than I have expected. Also, I miss the speedbooster...
FS700 comes with original box, original receipt, and all the original accessories - remote, microphone, batteries. Together with camera I sell custom made shoulder rig, and original Metabones Speedbooster with EF mount.
For all of that I would be happy with 2000 euros... Camera is located in Croatia.
I was recently a part of making a short movie, and the camera combination used, i thought might interest someone here. Also there might be someone thinking if the FS700 still works today, as i myself did. The film can be seen here (there are no subtitles, but the story is about a woman that gets stopped in the street by the police, because of the hoodie she is wearing. It's at satire on laws currently being implemented i Denmark)
For the dialogue parts, we were cutting between a Gh5 and a sony FS700. It worked out great I think, all though it was difficult to get the colors to match. We were also filming outside, so that did not help, with the ever changing sun clouds. For lenses, we used a Canon 24-70 2.8 (with focal reducer) on the GH5, and a Tamron 17-50 2.8 on the FS700.
Can you tell which is which?
I would not use this camera combo for anything that should be matched quickly, but if you have the time, the FS700 files in 10 bit prores slog and the GH5 10 bit vlog files, were super great to work with. The result is not perfect, but we like it. I love both cameras, and I am amazed how great the FS700 and the odyssey 7q are! We were afraid we would have to change batteries all the time, but big NP-F batteries lastede around 2 hours each (1 in the cam that lasted longer and 1 in the odyssey 7q). Mounted on a shoulder rig, the FS700 is also pretty comfortable, in comparison with for instance, an URSA Mini and weighs about the same, with the odyssey. The buttons are a pain to reach though.
For those interested, the dialogue was recorded with at Røde NTG1 shotgun mic to a Tascam 60d.
Here are some other shots from the film.
(if there is banding in the footage where you see it, it is jpeg/web compression, it is not in the final video file.)
I my last video i did a Star Trek transporter effect. It's pretty basic and i would like to create something like the transporter of the Franklin in Star Trek Beyond in my future videos.
I would love to get feedback on my video quality and what would you add. Particulary the lighting is a area i need to work on.
I know there are worlds between my transporter effect and the pro effect from Beyond, but i would like to be able to do it some day. Imagine all the techniques that go in a effect like this.
I'm shooting on the GH4 whit the Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH Lens.
Thanks for reading
