The Odyssey7Q and Sony FS700

I was very excited last week to hear that Convergent Design had finally released the highly-anticipated firmware update for the Odyssey7Q that added ProRes422 and 4K RAW recording.  I’ve been a proud owner of the FS700 for over a year and have loved shooting with the camera, but always wished for an escape from the 8-bit limits of the output and internal recording.  The Sony-branded 4K RAW recording solution is large and expensive, but the Odysssey7Q offers similar functionality in a more versatile, compact and affordable package.

I quickly arranged to conduct a test with the help of my good friend and fellow cinematographer John Tran.  John also has a couple FS700s in his inventory and was one of the first in the city to receive an Odyssey7Q.
We had both updated our FS700s to v3.0 firmware last summer (required for 4K RAW output) and have been waiting all this time to actually record 4K RAW to the Odyssey7Q. Camera assistant Chris Goll kept us organized during the test.

We decided that our test of different recording formats (including the internal AVCHD) would focus on these aspects: latitude/dynamic range of available gamma curves and recording formats, bit-depth, chroma-subsampling, and resolution/scaling. Continue reading
