If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your Sony FS7, or turning your FS700 into a 4K beast or even future-proofing your Sony FS5 for its upcoming future Raw upgrade, or you just wanted to get an awesome 4K Raw recorder, then now may be the best time go buy an Odyssey7Q+!
Just earlier today, Colorado-based Convergent Design slashed a whopping $500 off the $2,295 regular price on their flagship 4K recorder, effectively pricing the Odyssey7Q+ at $1,795, the lowest price it has ever been at. They are also throwing in a free 256GB SSD in to sweeten the deal.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Odyssey7Q+ from Convergent Design, it is a beast of a 4K raw recorder, capable of recording various resolutions and codecs up to an including HD/2K/UHD/4K in Apple ProRes 422 and 4444 codecs, in RAW (requires Raw Bundle option) or in DPX. The 7.7” OLED touchscreen offers an unparalleled image analysis and advanced monitoring Tools, a 3D-LUT routing system and more.
For example the Sony FS7 can do 2K/240fps in Raw with the Odyssey7Q+, and the Sony FS5 will be able to record some form of 4K Raw and possibly Super Slow-motion in lower frame rates in Raw in a future paid firmware upgrade.
Note: The Raw functionality requires the purchase of the Odyssey Raw Bundle available for $995 (outright purchase of all raw supported formats including ARRI Alexa Classic, Canon, Sony and others) or a daily rental option of $99.
Now, there has been some speculation as to whether Convergent Design have another product release up their sleeve for NAB 2016 (coming up in mid April), which is entirely possible, albeit nothing but a rumour at this stage. Regardless of what has prompted the $500 off promo, one thing is for sure – those who buy it now win.
This is a limited time offer, so if you’re on the fence and have been on it for some time, I wouldn’t hesitate to pull the trigger on the Odyssey7Q+ now, as I doubt we’d see another promo like this. At this price, it is a steal.
