Alister Chapman tests the FS700 with the x 4K recorder:
The 12 bit raw from the FS700 is remarkably good. It’s so close to the 16 bit raw from the F5 and F55 that frankly I don’t think that even the pixels peepers amongst us would be able to tell the difference in the end result. I do feel that I have to be just a little bit more accurate with my exposure and grading with the FS700, but maybe that’s just psychological? The FS700 for some reason is a bit noisier than my F5, especially in the colours, but it’s not something that concerns me, it’s still a nice clean image.
