Despite being similar to the FS100 and a higher model number, the FS700 is not a replacement for the FS100 nor an upgrade model. The FS700 is a separate model with it’s own feature set.FS700 can shoot at up to 960 frames per second. Now there are already quite a few cameras out there that can do this, but most of them are considerably more expensive and specialised. Above 240 frames per second the resolution of the FS700′s video is reduced, but when you get down to 240 fps and below the FS700 shoots at full 1920×1080 resolution. The nearest competition that can do this is Red’s Epic which will set you back around 8 times the price of the FS700 for a fully usable shooting package and Epic crops into the sensor for it’s high speed modes making getting wide angle slow-mo tricky.

"Just bought a Sony FS700 to shoot HD video and edit on my Quad Core Mac running Media Composer 5.5.1. Can anyone tell me the basic workflow? I can't even get the camera to show up on the desktop when connected via the USB cable supplied. The software that came with it is only for PC. I am frustrated. I'm an experienced pro editor, but this workflow is new to me. Please help!"
As we all know, Avid doesn't do 1080p60. Very few NLE's do. Actually, 60fps at 1080 is a non-standard format and Avid only works with standard film and broadcast formats. Although, Avid MC has added some plug-ins, actually background converters for the high-definition video format AVCHD, the importing process are unbelievably slow. In order to import the AVCHD to Avid MC for editing, the easy workaround is to transcode 60p MTS to Avid compatible video formats DNxHD .mov.
