Re: AXS-R7 recorder full details

What are the limitations of the R5 vs. the R7?  is it just the lack of cache and dual card slots? I know the R7 only takes the newer cards.  Is there a frame rate max? cant seem to find a comparison anywhere.

Re: AXS-R7 recorder full details

Good information on the R7 here:  http://www.fdtimes.com/2016/08/05/sony-axs-r7-x-ocn-original-camera-negative-recording/

 

R7 difference.

X-OCN Codec

120fps 4K on F55 only

Will not use original AXS card but will use AXS -A cards ( blue and black) Black 4.8gbs only for 120fps

Cache recording - at selected frame rates

Robust waterproof build with 2 card slots

[ Edited ]

The AXS-R5 is up to 240fps in 2K RAW

 

Up to 60p in 4K RAW

 

The v8 firmware has no impact on the AXS-R5

Re: AXS-R7 recorder full details

Will The R5 do X-OCN?  the data rate is less.  Thats the reason for it, right?  I would think the frame rate would be limited, but not cut out the availabilty of a more efficient record codec?  Let us put a dent in the other colored cameras with variable bitrates.

Re: AXS-R7 recorder full details

No the R5 cannot record XOCN, it requires new hardware processing hence the need for the R7

Re: AXS-R7 recorder full details

That's kinda the point: new product replaces 3 year old product. Normal really!

Re: AXS-R7 recorder full details

Is Sony planning to update the AXS-CR1 Card reader to take the slim AXSM cards without the use of the adaptor?

Re: AXS-R7 recorder full details

Hi, Nick,

 

It appears not, at least according to the info about the new cards, here.

 

http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/cat-srmemory/cat-memory/product-AXSA1TS48/

 

Note the section in the Features that begin with "Works with...."

 

Best regards,
Will
