This Sony FS-700E has had the paid-for firmware update to allow it to record 4K/RAW and with S-log2 to a suitable external recorder, such as an Odyssey 7Q.
It is now running firmware version 3.1
There is NO lens included in this sale.
The camera has 132x10H operation time.
Cosmetically, it is in generally good condition, although it does have many minor external scuffs.
Its sensor is 100% unmarked. Sensor is perfect.
This camera is in perfect working order, except for a few unimportant peripheral issues:
1/ The LCD has had its anti-glare coating rubbed away over much of its surface. However, the LCD remains very usable.
2/ The external Film Plane Marker Screw got knocked out of its housing (see close-up photos.) Very few people would ever use the film plane marker screw when filming - it is for attaching one end of a tape measure to measure the distance between the subject being filmed and the plane of the senor, used when focusing by distance markings on the lens. But who ever does that? I've included the screw, but it no longer screws in, although I suppose if you needed to use it you could glue in a suitably sized screw housing or something.
3/ The plastic thumb tightener for the side handle securing bolt is missing. However, it is still easy to adequately tighten the bolt using fingers.
4/ There are some minor cleaning marks on the optic of the detachable viewfinder. They don't show during operation.
Note: the jack connector of the cable leading from the side handle controls got squashed in a case, and I replaced it by splicing in another cable with a similar connector - see close-up photo of the splicing. The operation was 100% successful.
Note: the XLR mic supplied in this sale is the standard for this model - a Sony EXM-XM1. Its foam windshield, however, is not the original. The foam windshield supplied in this sale is a cut-down windshield taken from a Rode mic. It's probably better than the original.
The FS-700 comes in this sale with its original power supply / a third-party battery / Sony charger (but not the standard one for this model – an older one) / a Sony ECM-XM1 XLR mic / detachable handle / detachable viewfinder / detachable side handle.
NOTE: UK SALE ONLY (although I might consider an EU buyer). I do not accept offers. Sale is at the listed price only. Also, I do not allow collection - item is posted to the buyer, with payment via the bblist escrow service only.
