Expert Review

The FS700 is the bigger brother of the FS100, our Best Budget Professional Camcorder. Like the FS100, this camera also performs very admirably in low light meaning it can catch things like a candle burning in a dark room or a face in moonlight, without a lot of noise until you get to the higher gain levels.

One of the major reasons to use this camera, especially over the FS100, is if you plan on doing any slow motion recording. Out of the box, the FS700 can record 240 fps at 1920x1080 (full HD) in 8 second bursts and up to 960 fps in 19 second bursts if you drop down to lower resolutions.

While the sensor itself is 4K, the camera actually can only record up to 1920x1080 internally. It is, however, upgradeable (For an additional $5400) to enable 16-bit RAW 4K and 2K recording. On top of the added resolution, the external recorder allows for 2K, 12-bit RAW high speed recording up to 240 fps for incredible-looking, higher-resolution, super slow motion. Overall, the camera is easy to use, even for less experienced users giving you great value for the price along with options to upgrade to a truly professional device.Rating: 4.5/5
