Sony NEX-FS700 AVCHD Final Cut Pro X (FCP X) X importing tips

Sony NEX-FS700 is a professional, modular camera with a 4K Super 35mm sensor that is a striking improvement over its predecessor the Sony NEX-FS100. This camera shoots 1080p HD video onto a 4K native sensor which means better control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light (with a dB range of 0-30 db), lower image noise, and an amazing dynamic range. However, the main attraction of this camera is the ability to capture 1080p at 240fps super-slow motion (8 second bursts) with reduced resolution at 480fps and 960fps. The FS700 comes equipped with four built-in ND filters, 3G/HD-SDI output, 50/60 Hz control (for NTSC/PAL option). The camera incorporates many of the same stellar features as the FS100 including: gain controls, embedded timecode, expanded focus, peaking, histogram, shotgun mic and dual XLR inputs.
