· External RAW recorder for
NEX-FS700E via SDI connection
The AXS-R5*, once docked with the
HXR-IFR5, becomes an external RAW
recorder for the NEX-FS700E* - enabling an even wider variety of
creative shooting styles. Connection with the NEX-FS700E uses just
a single 3G HD-SDI cable and the NEX-FS700E can become a camera
head when used separately, or it can be used like a camcorder if
the whole assembly is mounted onto a rig. (There is a 1/4 inch
screw hole for those kinds of rig solutions.) The HXR-IFR5 uses the
power source on the AXS-R5, which can be powered by a BP-FL75
lithium ion battery pack or an external DC 12V power source using
the XLR 4 pin power input.
* AXS-R5 requires firmware version 1.20 or later and NEX-FS700E
needs firmware version 3.00 (service upgrade of NEX-FS700Emay be a
· 4K/2K high speed
Other than 4K (4096 × 2160) recording at 24p/25p/30p/50p/60p,
100fps and 120fps recording in 4K resolution is available for
approximately 4 seconds. Also, in 2K (2048 × 1080) recording
mode, 240fps/200fps/120fps/100fps high speed continuous recording
is available for unlimited time. These high speed recording modes
are only possible with the combination of NEX-FS700E, HXR-IFR5 and
* Audio is not recorded in high speed RAW recording modes.
· 16 bit linear RAW recording onto the
AXS memory card
The combination of the
HXR-IFR5 and the AXS-R5 makes possible
recording 16 bit linear RAW files onto an AXS memory card,
unlocking the full potential of the 4K imager on the NEX-FS700E so
the broad latitude and high colour resolution can be captured in
RAW format. Using the AXS-CR1 card reader, recorded RAW files can
be easily transferred to a PC. Sony’s “RAW
Viewer*” software allows viewing, processing and simple
colour grading on files. In addition to high quality movies, high
resolution 8.4M still pictures can also be captured.
* RAW Viewer Version 1.1 or later is necessary.
· AVCHD simultaneous recording on
Even in RAW recording mode*, NEX-FS700E can simultaneously record
AVCHD onto the camera’s memory card. Since the recorded AVCHD
files will have the same time code as the RAW files, the AVCHD
files can be used as proxy files for off-line editing.
* AVCHD cannot be recorded in high speed RAW recording mode.
* Recording duration is slightly different between RAW and AVCHD
recording however time code is synchronized.
Recording/playback times using AXS-512S24 media
4K (4096 × 2160) Approx. 60 minutes (23.98P) or 24 minutes
2K (2048 × 1080) Approx. 240 minutes (23.98P) or 96 minutes
· HD output for monitoring
HDMI/Component/Composite video outputs
on the NEX-FS700E and the AUX OUT of the AXS-R5 can be used for
monitoring purposes. In order to achieve accurate monitoring of the
wide dynamic range of RAW recording, Sony has added S-Log2 settings
onto the picture profile of the NEX-FS700E (Ver.3.00).
* The gamma setting cannot be set individually for each video
out/LCD panel/AVCHD recording.
* HD output or monitoring on FS700’s LCD are 16:9 mode
* AUX OUT of the AXS-R5 is disabled during 2K recording mode. (It
is able to output 2K playback mode.)
