The FS700 is great, but it’s a little long in the tooth. The sensor is the same as many newer cameras like an FS7 or FS5, but it’s bound and limited to HD… if you don’t get a huge 4K kit from Sony that makes it ridiculously expensive. In this video from DMDR, they speak with an Atomos representative who shows you how you can basically hack your FS700 and turn it into a camera that would normally cost thousands of dollars more in order to get those features.
