With this First Look video of the Sony FS7, Zacuto shows us how this camera can be used with the new Recoil system. Using just a few elements, you can turn your Sony FS7 into a Recoil rig that offers true balance and camera control for the cinema verite style set up. The camera is wonderful but it’s important to understand that when a shoulder pad is in the back you are holding the camera up, not operating a balanced camera. Moving the camera back causes some issues because you need to move the grip and EVF forward. Watch and see how we can solve these issues in various ways. Post by Eric C. Petrie
First Look at the Sony Fs7 from Zacuto from Zacuto on Vimeo.
At NAB 2014 Zacuto first showed they’re new electronic viewfinder called the Gratical. The grammatical, simply put, is a high-end production caliber monitor in an EVF format. it has every feature you could possibly expect from a high end field monitor, scopes, LUTS, camera date, focus assist, exposure assist, the list literally goes on and on. Oh, and its a native 1280×1024 OLED so the image quality is insane.
The Gratical HD is scheduled to start shipping in January for $3,800. Right now I’m offering a pre-order discount of $200, getting the unit price down to $3,600. Thats still a lot for a viewfinder but with the range of options this finder has it will be able to attach to any camera on the market today and most likely any camera thats going to be coming on the market for years to come.
