With an adjustable eyepiece and handle, the camera is customizable for long form, hand-held shooting. The camera records 4K/ UHD/ HD in a 10 bit 4:2:2 in x-avci or x-avcl files on a QXD cards, in either a rec. 709 or s-log colour space. The camera can record up to 180 fps in HD and 60 fps in 4K. Included with the camera is an E-mount to Canon EF mount adapter, so that it’s compatible with our Zeiss Compact prime lens kit and any Canon EF mount lens. A very flexible and easy to use camera, this should give all our filmmakers cutting edge technology for their project. The FS7 rents for $100/day, or as a kit for $125
