Sony NEX-FS700E pro 4K camcorder incoming

Details of the Sony NEX-FS700E handheld camcorder have emerged, suggesting consumers will be able to enjoy a recording experience previously found only in specialist top-end devices. At least they will via a future upgrade. Initially we’re looking at full HD 1080p but the FS700E will eventually be able to capture 4K RAW footage via 3G-SDI.

Other highlights include the ability to record HD-quality video in up to 10x slow motion, or up to 40x in lower resolutions. Just think of the fun you can have with that. Your shooting prowess will be enhanced with easily interchangeable lenses thanks to the boxed-in E-mount, in addition to built-in HD filters - meaning your videos will give Hollywood a run for its money.

Save up to 99 different profile settings on to a memory card and you’ll have something for every occasion, come rain or shine. You can even share said 99 settings with your friends and colleagues: useful if you’re working on a collaborative project.

No official word on pricing or availability, though the internet is awash with rumours of a June arrival.
