    It's SLOG2 actually which so far from working with in on the F55 I think its better than regular SLOG from the F3.

    Not sure I'd say that. Consider on the F5:

    - Form factor along
    - HD / 2K 10-bit 422 XAVC
    - SR Master Codec

    But in terms of high speed frame rates, yes, it does seem the FS700 will do double the frame rates available on the F5 & the F55. lol

    The FS 700 is already 10 bit 4:2:2 internally I believe. This turns it into an Epic without the crop factor for the high speed.

    The FS700 is 8-bit YCbCr internal, and 12-bit RAW. The F3 is 8-bit internal as well and can only do 10-bit YCbCr or RGB through SDI port using an external recorder. The F5/F55 are the only PMW series cameras to do 10-bit internally starting at $16,500 and $29,000.

    Wow, very nice. I wonder how much additional dynamic range SLOG2 will open up on the FS700?

    Probably 1 to 1.5 stops, not much but still better than a kick in the teeth.

    I'm not so sure, if it can bring the camera up to 12.5-13 stops it starts kicking at the F3's door for DR. And that's nothing to shake a stick at.

    Thanks for the link! Really informative, thanks to Tony Reale! I guess slog2 will also be enabled when shooting regular AVCHD? That would be really useful... I also wonder what other third party recorders will be capable of recording the FS700's 4K. did he say that the 422 out will get 10 or 12 bit with the firm/hardware upgrade/slog option?
