Vocas recently invited Sony ICE and legendary DP Alister Chapman for a 2+ hour in-depth presentation on the latest Sony FS5 4K Camera.
Sony were, as always, exceptionally busy during PhotoPlus 2015, organising numerous presentations and panel discussions around their latest 4K technology implemented into their full-frame Alpha 7 mirrorless line-up and more precisely, the incredible opportunities and flexibility that the A7R II and Sony A7S II offer both in stills and especially video mode.
Just this past Friday at the start of IBC 2015, Sony announced their latest addition to the large sensor XDCAM range - the PXW-FS5. Featuring a similar, ergonomic and compact design we've seen from the FS7, the FS5 is slimmer and smaller, but still has a lot of horsepower under the hood. So, with that said, let's see how it stacks against other cameras from Sony and competing brands, at least on paper.
