Sony just announced the NEX-FS700 camera early this week. It has all the features of the FS100 but with some big improvements including a 3G-SDI output, ND filters and high-speed recording options. The big news is that the camera is “4k Ready,” meaning that in the future it will be able to output 4K 12-bit RAW data over the 3G-SDI connection.
The list price of the camera will be around $10,000, and it should ship in June of this year. Watch the video above to get a closer look at the slow-motion fonction of the camera and read the Preliminary information from Sony Europe to have an idea of some the specs.

Additionally, it also offers several creative options, shooting styles and enhanced ergonomics – all based on customer feedback – to deliver a flexible production tool that fits seamlessly into a variety of shooting applications.
