The Sony FS7 Mk II arrives as one of the most eagerly anticipated product launches in recent times. Building on the pedigree of Sony’s inaugural FS7, the second iteration comes with a bunch of new tricks up its sleeve, ensuring it will be every bit as revered as its predecessor.

The original FS7 was widely regarded as the pinnacle of documentary camcorders, so Sony started with more than solid foundations from which to construct the mark II model. The new FS7 is largely the same camera, with some minor nips, tucks and tweaks where required. The stunning Exmoor sensor remains, so you can be assured of the FS7’s heralded image capturing. But where there were improvements to be made, Sony hasn’t shied away – diligently ensuring the FS7 II represents an evolution of its impressive forefather.

Chief amongst these renovations is the all-new electronic variable ND filter. Designed to ensure constant colour balance no matter how changeable the light conditions, Sony’s stellar ND technology frees filmmakers from having to worry about exposure settings, or swapping out filters. This really transforms shooting on the move, making a big difference when capturing for long periods outdoors.

What’s really clever about the variable ND mode is that it allows the user to adjust the ND filter while shooting, and transition seamlessly between steps. This means footage remains reassuringly true to the videographer’s intention, as the desired shutter speeds can be used without having to compromise due to light variations.

And the enhanced ND capabilities don’t stop there. The FS7 II can compensate for exposure fluctuation caused by iris control, which often occurs while adjusting the depth of field. This allows users to tweak exposure without affecting the level of bokeh, even in the most variable lighting environments. Added benefits here also include the prevention of focus softening caused by diffraction and eliminating colour shift, which can be caused by the use of multiple stacked external ND filters.

That headline-grabbing ND filter isn’t the only new addition to the FS7 II, however. Sony has also introduced a new lever lock type E-mount, meaning lenses can be changed by rotating the locking collar rather than the lens itself. During a shoot this can save valuable time, as in the majority of scenarios lens support rigs won't need to be removed. The FS7 II also supports the Sony A Mount System, providing compatibility with over 70 lenses.

There are a few handy ergonomic enhancements too. The new FS7 now allows the user to adjust the Smart Grip or viewfinder positions without the need for tools. The detachable viewfinder eye-piece also acts as an additional stabilisation point when shooting in handheld, and robust square section rods and lever-clamps on the LCD and camera body provide simple and precise front-to-back VF adjustment while retaining level positioning.

Sony had a tough challenge to improve on the FS7. It didn’t need to do much, in all honesty. However, everything it has done combines to make this updated model more compelling and convincing as perhaps the ultimate documentary video camera.
