Good Quality Lens

A few Sony NEX-FS700 owners who reviewed the Sony NEX-FS700 thought it had a good lens. Expert website Camcorderinfo.com wrote in their review of this camcorder four years ago “It has an E-Mount lens system, which means it works with Sony's NEX lenses out of the bo” .

Reasonably Priced

One customer who bought it concluded that it was good value for money. Camcorderinfo.com said in their Sony NEX-FS700 review “Although its $10,000 price tag may seem high”.

Quite Large Screen Size

The smallest screen size of big sensor size video cameras that have been available for around the same time as the NEX-FS700 is 2.3", the largest is 7.6", and the average screen size is 3.1". The Sony NEX-FS700 has one of the larger screen sizes (3.5 inches) amongst camcorders of this age.

Optical Image Stabiliser

This camcorder has an Optical image stabiliser, which is typical of many camcorders that came out around the same time as it. Optical image stabilisation is hardware based. Digital cameras with optical IS typically have a built-in gyro sensor and microprocessor that detects camera shake as it occurs. The stabiliser compensates for any camera movement.

They have a maximum capacity of 2TB (Terabytes).

An SDXC memory card is in fact the best supported memory card type across all big sensor size video cameras that have been around for a similar time to the NEX-FS700.

An MS Pro-HG memory card is the worst supported memory card type across comparable types of camcorder.
