The Sony PXW-FS7 is causing a lot of buzz, and with good reason, since it can acquire multiple resolutions and codecs. The XDCA-FS7 is an extension unit that attaches to the back of the FS7, providing inputs and outputs, as well as the ability to export Raw for external recording. In addition, the XDCA-FS7 extension contains a codec board that enables ProRes 422 recording internally to XQD media. In the video above, I give a tour of the options that the XDCA opens up, as well as related menus in the camera. I also give a brief overview of how to set up the Odyssey7Q, which is what I used as my external source for recording Raw.
