Our thoughts

It gives you a 12bit 2K/4K RAW video output, a 12V hi-rose power output and allows you to record ProRes 422 (in HD only). This also makes the FS7 into a more “broadcast style” camera.  As well as the other benefits the V Loc batteries give you extended battery life and a more ENG style of balance on the shoulder. It is particularly useful if you want to synchronise multiple cameras as it gives you gen lock and timecode connections.

While the PXW-FS7 XDCAM camera comes with internal XAVC and MPEG-2 recording on XQD media you can attach the optional XDCA-FS7 Extension Unit. The box is attachable via a MultiPin connector so there are no hassles about cables. The Extension Unit offers additional I/O connectors like Timecode and Genlock for multi-camera operation or the possibility to use common V-Mount batteries. It also allows RAW data output to record 12-bit RAW footage on the AXS-R5 (in combination with HXR-IFR5), or another third party RAW recorder via the FS RAW Interface. The XDCA-FS7 will encode the video stream into the Apple ProRes 422 codec, which is then recorded on to the internal XQD media.

  • Attaches seamlessly to PXW-FS7 camera

    The Extension Unit XDCA-FS7 can be connected directly to the PXW-FS7 XDCAM camera to enable the use of functions that support the operator’s shooting style or workflow.

When using larger lenses, the Extension Unit will balance any possible front heaviness and increase the stability on the shoulder as well.
