Sony NEX-FS100 review

 

We've been uncommonly keen to get our hands on the Sony NEX-FS100 ever since we first heard about it back in March. You see, this is no ordinary

Stunning footage ; Great in low light ; Modular design

No auto zoom ; Lacks sturdiness ; The sensor isn't as large as a DSLR's

It's not going too far to say that the NEX-FS100 is more than just a camcorder.

Sony NEX-FS100E

 

Excellent picture quality, cost point, varying functionality, compression codec. The Loupe is good

Our firmware won't update. Had a problem with white balance fixed via Prime Support (which is good). NO FILE NAMES for logging - having to log with time-codes is a step backwards. No internal ND filters is a disappointment. The viewfinder is just a...
