Interchangeable Optics 

Compatibility with Sony’s wide range of E-mount lenses* enables the FR7 to break through location and space limitations while maintaining the cinematic look and operability that have made Sony digital cinema cameras leaders in the field. Versatile connectivity and efficient multi-camera workflow support further enhance the user experience. Power zoom models can be controlled remotely and provide unique framing flexibility. 

*NOTE: Some E-mount lenses (e.g., SEL100400GM, SEL200600G, SEL400F28GM, and SEL600F40GM) are not compatible with pan and tilt operation on the FR7. Refer to Sony’s support site for compatibility information.

4K Internal Recording

The FR7 is capable of 4K internal recording, encoding 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 color sampling with either Full-HD Long-GOP or 4K All Intra compression. This makes it possible to push your color grades further, stretching video out for ultimate HDR realism while still retaining natural gradation. 

Internal Slow-Motion Capture 

The FR7 allows internal slow-motion capture at QFHD resolution and a high 120 fps frame rate. 120 fps footage can be recorded at the camera’s highest quality XAVC-I 4:2:2 10-bit Class 300. Full HD can be recorded at 240 fps allowing 10x slow motion (24p recording). 

High Sensitivity and Dynamic Range

In addition to the FR7’s Base Sensitivity setting for low light shooting, it also features a Cine EI mode where base sensitivity can be set to either ISO 800 or ISO 12,800 to match lighting conditions, making it possible to minimize noise while maintaining a consistent look. The FR7’s wide 15+ stop dynamic range prevents blown highlights and blocked shadows. The inclusion of Sony's acclaimed S-Cinetone look, allows beautiful images to be achieved directly in-camera. S-Cinetone is optimized for natural skin tones and mid-range colors, with gentle highlight roll-off, for impressive subject depiction and camera-matching and powerful post-production possibilities. 

Hybrid Log-Gamma HDR Profile

The included HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR picture profile, complete with the wide-gamut BT.2020 color space, can be used for direct HDR (HLG) playback on compatible TVs. S-Log3 gamma curves are available, with S-Log3 designed for better reproduction of gradations from shadows to the mid-grey range (18% grey). Two color gamut settings (S- Gamut3, and S-Gamut3.Cine) make it easy to match the colors of footage shot with Sony's Cinema Line Cameras. 

Variable Electronic ND Filter 

Sony’s integrated, remotely controllable ND filter allows seamless ND adjustment from 1/4 to 1/128 so that exposure can be varied while keeping the aperture constant for consistent depth of field. Variable ND in auto perfectly exposes images without affecting the depth of field, shutter angle or ISO, letting you achieve ideal exposure even during changing lighting conditions. Remote control is also possible, allowing exposure control at a distance from the camera.

Fast Hybrid Autofocus

Fast Hybrid AF locks onto the subject quickly and tracks tenaciously, with 627 selectable phase-detection AF points that cover almost the entire image area (approx. 94% vertical and 95% horizontal). The camera’s BIONZ XR engine can process a huge volume of subject data in real time for precise, high-density focus analysis. Fast Hybrid AF and pan/tilt/zoom functionality combine to focus on even fast-moving subjects precisely and smoothly over a wide area, even when a shallow depth of field is used.  The advanced real-time processing realizes unprecedented detection performance for pinpoint eye focus even when subjects are looking down or up at steep angles, allowing the operator to concentrate fully on composing the best shot. This high-performance AF is available when shooting 4K 120p movies too. Touch Tracking can be used to initiate Real-time Tracking on the desired subject when using the FR7 web application, with Real-time Eye AF if an eye is detected. Maximum AF points can vary according to the recording modes. NOTE: Requires use of an AF-compatible lens. 

Flexible Camera Mounting Options

With its integrated and remotely controllable pan/tilt mechanism, FR7 can be mounted on a tripod, the ceiling, or in other locations that provide limited access, allowing subjects to be recorded from unique viewpoints. Pan and tilt speed can be continuously varied from 0.02 degrees/sec to 60 degrees/sec, supporting a wide range of precise camera movements. The pan angle range is from -170° to +170°, and the tilt angle range is from -30° to +195° when used in upright orientation (or from -210° to +15° inverted). 

Web Application Control 

A new, dedicated web application enables control of pan, tilt, zoom, focus, record, playback, and all camera settings from a tablet or computer web browser. This provides easy, versatile remote control for situations where the camera is mounted on a ceiling or other hard-to-access location. 

Precise, Scalable Remote Control with the RM-IP500

FR7 is compatible with Sony’s RM-IP500 remote controller for multi-camera production with precise joystick operation, further expanding creative potential. Speed adjustment knobs allow pan, tilt, zoom, focus, speed adjustment to match the subject and application. Zoom can be controlled either via the joystick or a seesaw lever, to match operator needs. A single RM-IP500 unit can remotely control up to 100 FR7 cameras (10 groups of 10 cameras). Up to 100 camera position presets can be memorized (presets include camera direction, zoom, and focus, and can be recalled at the touch of a button).

HDMI Type A & 12G SDI BNC Output 

It is possible to output video as a 12G, 6G, 3G, or HD-SDI signal, and the camera can also output in 16-bit RAW format when the appropriate setting is selected (100/120p recording and proxy recording are not supported in 16-bit RAW). There’s also the option of either a clean HDMI output, for external recording, or overlaid with status and settings for monitoring. Additionally, an optional SFP+ module (sold separately) can be used to convert the camera's SDI output to optical format for low-loss transfer over long distances.

XLR 5-pin 2-Channel Audio Input

This connector receives the output from an external microphone or audio device. Audio CH-1 and CH-2 are received via a single 5-pin connector.

Professional Connectivity with TC Input, GENLOCK and Option Connectors 

To support professional synchronization, BNC connectors for Timecode input and GENLOCK are provided as well as an OPTION connector to coordinate tally light signals with an external device.

RTSP / NDI|HX / SRT IP Streaming

RTSP streaming allows the video output from one camera to be simultaneously distributed to up to five viewers. SRT enables high-quality, low-latency video transfer even in unstable network conditions. NDI|HX enables a network connection to NDI compatible devices such as switchers and media servers, supporting efficient live video production using Internet protocols. NOTE: An NDI|HX Upgrade must be purchased from NewTek.

Integrated Tally Lights

In a multi-camera shoot, tally lights indicate which camera is currently in use, helping to facilitate smooth operation. A red tally light can indicate the current on-air camera while a green tally light can indicate a camera in preview, ready to be switched on-air next. 

Dual Media Card Slots 

A rare feature in a PTZ camera, the FR7 features dual media slots that support CFexpress Type A and SDXC memory cards. Slots A and B both support CFexpress Type A memory cards as well as UHS-II/UHS-I memory cards for fast transfer of large volumes of data. The ability to record exposure settings and other metadata with high-quality XAVC-I footage makes the FR7 an excellent choice for a wide variety of video production applications. 

Dedicated Ceiling Mount Bracket 

The FR7 is compatible with the CIB-PCM1 accessory ceiling mount bracket (sold separately) for easy overhead setup.  The “Ceiling” option in the Web App flips the control directions, for natural operation even with the camera mounted upside down.
