Not long ago, indie filmmakers lusted for an inexpensive, shallow depth-of-field solution. Now, this dream is a widespread, low-cost tool. High-speed photography is sure to take the same course. The Sony FS700 may just do for high-speed what the Canon 5DmkII did for shallow depth-of-field. At the very least. it has opened the door to inexpensive high-speed image capture. See our first test:
