for total control

Even when the camera is mounted on the ceiling or in another hard-to-access location, operation is easy and intuitive. A new dedicated Web App uses the same menu format as the FX6. Pan, tilt, zoom, focus and record operations and all camera settings can be controlled from a tablet or a computer's web browser

  1. Refer to the help guide for system requirements.

Variable-speed camera movement

The FR7 supports variable-speed camera movement. Pan and tilt speed can be continuously varied from 0.02 degrees per second to 60 degrees per second, for flexible subject tracking and production scenarios.

Quick-access preset positions

The supplied infrared remote controller

  1. The supplied infrared remote controller can store up to three presets.
, the dedicated FR7 Web App, and the optional RM-IP500 remote controller allow up to 100 camera position presets to be recalled

Fast Hybrid AF for reliable remote shooting 

Fast Hybrid AF locks onto the subject quickly and tracks tenaciously, even with remote shooting, shallow depth of field, or low light. With wide coverage from 627 selectable phase-detection AF points, the camera can handle a huge volume of subject data in real time – ideal for fast-moving subjects. [1] Phase-detection AF coverage area

Real-time Tracking/ Realtime Eye AF during remote shooting 

You can leave focusing to the camera and concentrate fully on composing your best shot. In the FR7's Web App, Touch Tracking starts autofocus for your chosen subject, with Real-time Tracking. In addition, Real-time Eye AF automatically keeps pinpoint eye focus, even when the subject is looking up or down at a steep angle.

Electronic Variable ND filter support for remote shooting

Remote exposure control with the built-in ND filter is possible. Sony's electronically controlled ND filter allows seamless ND adjustment from 1/4 to 1/128, so that exposure can be varied while keeping the aperture constant for consistent depth of field. 

Breathing Compensation

Tally lights facilitate multi-camera production 

In a multi-camera shoot, tally lights indicate which camera is currently in use, helping to facilitate smooth operation. A red tally light can indicate the current on-air camera while a green tally light can indicate a camera in preview, ready to be switched on-air next.

12G SDI BNC output/ HDMI type A output

It is possible to output video as a 12G, 6G, 3G, or HD-SDI signal, and the camera can also output in RAW format when the appropriate setting is made. There’s also the option of either a clean HDMI output, for external recording, or overlaid with status and settings for monitoring.
