The XAVC-L codec in the Sony FS7 is a Long G.O.P. codec, a more efficient codec compared to the XAVC-I codec. However, even if the files are smaller and takes 1/4 of the space in the media compared to XAVC-I, it takes more processing power to handle it with your computer. Also, it is only 8-bit when shooting in 4K.
