    Quite often people express a wish for a "full frame" camcorder with the A7s sensor in it. But I don't necessarily need a VG900 with an A7s sensor in it.


    I'd be quite happy for an "FS1" to come along to replace the FS100, just like the FS7 "replaced" the FS700.




    Its specs could be:


    Same form factor as the FS7 is (but even lighter??), and not shaped like the FS100/FS700!!


    FHD 422 10bit


    Slow motion of 120fps at FHD


    Sticking with SD cards please (not XQD)


    4K 420 8bit at 24/25/30 (maybe if lucky 4K 422 10bit over SDI?)


    2x SDI


    3 stage internal ND filters


    Same sensor as is currently in the FS700


    Priced same as a JVC GY-LS300




    I'd buy one of these.


    And its specs/price makes it a very attractive upgrade for FS100 owners (or even Sony F3 owners like myself! Even a FS700 owner might consider this as an interesting sideways move).
    And of course it will attract lots of interest from other non-Sony owners too, such as C100/C300 users, AF100 users, and BMD camera owners. And every DSLR/MILC shooter will of course be attracted to it!


    Yet at the same time I believe it has a sufficiently restrained specs/price mix that FS7/F5/FS700 owners won't get outright pissed about it being released (like the FS7 did to F5 owners...).

    I love the FS100, form factor and all so i really don't want much in a successor. Just give me the FS100 but have it shoot 4k and output 10bit via HDMi or SDI.

    I've gone with a couple of GH4 cameras while I'm waiting but I think Sony are the kings of low light sensor design right now so I'd prefer to be using an "FS1" if it ever became a reality.

    I discovered the Sony FS100 has been marked discontinued, I checked its status elsewhere and blogged my thoughts on this news:
