Four reasons to choose the R7 external recorder

1. Smaller files, smarter workflow

An ideal partner for our F55 and F5 CineAlta cameras, the new AXS-R7 external recorder takes full advantage of the advanced X-OCN recording format that captures files in 16-bit linear depth for spectacular picture quality. Better still, file size is up to 60% smaller than current F55 RAW-SQ. And that means significantly faster workflow with long record times and lower media storage costs.

2. Go faster

The R7 speeds your 4K workflow without compromising quality, doubling 4K RAW recording from 60fps up to 120fps* for the F55 compared with previous Sony recorders. For even higher frame rates, the R7 captures 2K RAW at up to 240fps with the F55 or F5 for 10x super slow motion playback.

*4K 120fps recording requires AXS-A S48 Series media cards. 4K 120fps not supported with F5.

3. Never miss a moment

4K shooters can take advantage of the R7’s cache recording feature that continually captures up to 30 seconds* of footage, even while the camera’s in standby mode. It’s great for documentaries or wildlife productions when absolutely anything can happen without warning.

*Actual cache record time may vary based on environmental conditions and usage.

4. Tough performer

From high-end drama to gritty documentaries: now you can keep on shooting, whatever adventure comes your way. The R7 features a strong, durable metal body that shrugs off gruelling conditions in the field. The recorder’s metal body is thicker than its predecessor 4K recorders, while electrical parts and ventilation shaft are separated by a metal filter that prevents entry of dust and water. The recorder’s camera connections are more secure, with a large top bracket that accepts four widely spaced screws.
