Sony has just announced their latest NEX-series camcorder, the FS700E. It features a 4k-ready Super 35mm CMOS sensor that is capable of 1080/24p and 1080/50p HD recording and 960 fps super-slow-motion video.  Other features are built-in ND filters, a 3G-SDI interface, MemoryStick and SD card slots as well as an interface for an external HXR-FMU128 flash memory unit. The FS700E is “4k-ready” only, which means that 4k recording will only be supported via a future firmware upgrade. The press release states:

Sony is planning a future firmware upgrade that will enable the NEX-FS700 to output 4K bit-stream data over 3G HD-SDI when used with an optional Sony 4K recorder.

The FS700E will be available in June 2012, the price has yet to be announced.
