Sony A7S Review: Preview

Today’s mirrorless cameras seem to be putting the traditional camcorder out to pasture, that being said, the Sony A7s has raised the bar again by providing its users with the ability to create 4k resolutions on a full frame 35mm sensor. What does this mean? Basically, according to this Sony A7s Review, the camera can just about shoot in the dark. The video above shows some of the capabilities of the Sony A7S with actual photography, while the one below is an interview with Director of Photography Den Lennie and Sony Product Information Manager El-Deane Nuade. Lennie actually used the camera for awhile and Nuade just brags about it like any good employee would do for his company’s product.

However, be prepared for a substantial cost increase when compared to the Panasonic GH4 which is of the micro four thirds variety. While it remains true that a bigger sensor means more flexibility in post, it also means bigger files, larger storage and faster media that always comes with a bigger price.

Sony A7S Review — First Impressions

Sony really redefined what full-frame photography could be in the fall of 2013, with the introduction of the A7 and A7R, by far the smallest full-frame, fully-featured interchangeable lens cameras we’d seen to date. Now, the Sony A7S is poised to similarly redefine the world of 4K video and low-light still shooting.

Rather than chasing ever more pixels, the Sony A7S takes a conscious step back, featuring an all-new 12.2-megapixel sensor with huge pixels — by current standards, at least — as well as some unique tweaks aimed at increasing dynamic range. The combination promises unprecedented low-light performance. By default, the Sony A7S has a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 102,400 equivalents for still imaging or video. This range can be expanded for still shooting to encompass everything from ISO 50 to 409,600 equivalents in still shooting, and ISO 100 to 409,600 equivalents for video.
