Thanks to our friends at CheesyCam and SatoStudios, we were lucky enough to get our hands on the highly desired Sony PXW-FS7, or FS7 for short. It’s definitely one of the most highly desired cameras out in the market today. And for good reason.
Sure the FS7 records amazing 4K Resolution. But one of the standout features that we wanted to test out was ability to record 180 Frames Per Second Slow Motion at full 1080. Without hesitation, Keiko Alingas and the Gear Addix crew decided to break it in and have a little fun with it. Below you will see the results.
