Posted by on Dec 30, 2014 in News & Tutorials, Videos, Work In Progress


We’re in the middle of a very exciting week here at Consequence Video Designs – 5 whole days of shooting with the brand new Sony PXW-FS7 4K UHD camera. I won’t be doing an in-depth review of all the features and specs, since you can find some very good ones online already. However, I’ll share some of my initial impressions, likes and dislikes, as well as all the pretty footage we shoot.

This morning, I took the FS7 down to the local trap range to see what I could get.
