11 Reasons For

Sony Has Good Video Camera Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Sony camcorders and also specifically for Sony big sensor size video cameras and found that in both cases Sony had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Acceptable Noise Level

One Sony NEX-FS700R owner who reviewed it reckoned that it was noisy. Expert website Studiodaily.com mentioned in their Sony NEX-FS700R review “Still, there is no denying that 4K capture may produce superior HD images, with the additional fine detail and reduced noise making a much better HD picture than originating”.

Full HD

Full HD

The Sony NEX-FS700R is Full HD, as are most of the other camcorders of this age and type.

We compared this video camera to all the other Full HD video cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony HDR-PJ810 ($1,393.21) is also worth considering.

Has an HDMI Port

Like most of the other video cameras of a similar age and spec to the NEX-FS700R, the NEX-FS700R has an HDMI port.

We compared all the other video cameras with an HDMI port to this video camera and we think the HDR-PJ650 ($1,393.21), and the HDR-PJ810 ($1,393.21) both from Sony which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SDXC Memory Card

SDXC memory card

The NEX-FS700R supports a better memory card type than most video cameras of this age and spec. This video camera supports an SDXC memory card, whereas most video cameras of a similar age and spec to it support an SDHC memory card. This Sony video camera also support MS PRO and MS Pro-HG Duo and SD memory cards. SDXC cards are SD cards but with a much higher capacity and faster processing speeds. They have a maximum capacity of 2TB (Terabytes).

An SDXC memory card is in fact the best supported memory card type amongst all video cameras of a similar spec and age to the NEX-FS700R.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The NEX-FS700R does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other video cameras of a similar age and type to the NEX-FS700R do have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an image stabiliser to this video camera and we think the HDR-PJ760, or the HDR-PJ810 ($1,393.21) both from Sony which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

The NEX-FS700R does not have an interchangeable lens, although keep in mind that most of the other big sensor size video cameras that were launched more than two years ago also do not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the NEX-VG20 ($106.99), the HDR-PJ810 ($1,393.21), or the NEX-VG30 all from Sony which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Low Display Resolution

Across all the camcorders of this type and age the display resolutions range from 91,000 pixels to 1,300,000 pixels. With a display resolution of only 91,200 pixels, the Sony NEX-FS700R has one of the lowest display resolutions amongst big sensor size video cameras of this age.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The NEX-FS700R is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other big sensor size video cameras that were released more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a video camera that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the HC-V707, or the HC-X920 ($649.00) both from Panasonic which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The NEX-FS700R does not have a night mode, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec video cameras that came out more than two years ago also do not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

Most camcorders of a comparable age and spec to the NEX-FS700R are not waterproof. The NEX-FS700R is no exception to this as it too is not waterproof.

Video cameras which are waterproof that might also be worth looking at include the Panasonic HX-WA30, or the JVC GZ-R15 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

Most similar spec camcorders that came out more than two years ago do not have a built-in projector. The NEX-FS700R is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in projector.

We think you might also be interested in alternative camcorders which also have a built-in projector including the HDR-PJ580 ($1,400.00), the HDR-PJ760, or the HDR-PJ650 ($1,393.21) all from Sony which also has a higher rating.

If you would consider a video camera with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Sony NEX-EA50 ($2,194.35) (1.7kg).
