The Sony NEX-FS100U can be thought of as the little brother of the Sony F3. This compact, highly modular camera uses a similar Super35-size CMOS sensor to that of the F3 (with 1.5x lens loss).This sensor size provides complete compatibility with a multitude of SLR and cine-style lenses (via optional adapters) as well as native mounting of Sony’s E-Mount lenses.
Able to shoot full 1080p video in a range of frame rates up to 60p, the NEX-FS100U is capable of recording 28Mbps AVCHD footage onto SD Cards or Memory Stick media (not included). Also, it can output 4:2:2 video (with embedded timecode) to an external recording unit. The camera includes a shotgun microphone with mount/carrying handle and dual XLR inputs for recording uncompressed, professional-level sound from an external source. Other features such as a rotating 3.5" XtraFine LCD panel with detachable viewfinder, SD recording, GPS geotagging, and slow shutter—make the NEX-FS100U an impressive camera. Not only will it cut well with the F3 as a B camera, it also capably stands on its own for film and commercial use.
