At the Bench: Sony AXS-R7 RAW Recorder

Sony recently announced the AXS-R7 recorder for their F5 and F55 cameras. The new AXS-R7 is a robust dual-slot RAW recorder that enables recording up to 120 fps in 4K on the F55.

At 120p, you'll need one of two new AXS media cards. Available in 1 TB and 512 GB capacities, these cards can support sustained read and write speeds of 4.8 Gbps, delivering 44 minutes at 59.94p or 22 minutes at 120 fps (1 TB version). The dual-slot recorder also accepts current AXS media, but the new cards are designed to support the write speeds required for 4K RAW 120 fps.

In addition, the R7 now also enables Cache (buffer) Recording in RAW at 23.98p for up to approximately 30 seconds. With the recorder, the F55 and F5 will both get this feature, which is great for wildlife and documentary production where you never know what you are going to miss. Watch my video above to learn more about the R7 and also the new firmware, version 8, for the F5 and F55.
