TIPS FROM THE TECH
The FS7 is a great option for handheld use. This camera is really easy to grip and is super light. . I would recommend this camera to anyone doing run-and-gun documentary style shoots. The E- mount can be adapted to either PL or EF, which gives the user a huge amount of lens options. Try pairing it with the Canon Cine-Servo 17-120 – its full external servo control gives it more of a handheld-friendly ENG style set up.
