The Sony A7s was announced at NAB 2014 with some fanfare as the “world’s 4K full-frame DSLR with full pixel readout“. Sony reps focused on the staggering low-light capabilities of the full-frame sensor at the heart of the camera with ISO values reaching 409,600.
In addition, the camera features a 50mbps 422 internal XAVC-S codec combined with the much desired S-Log 2 Cine-Gamma also found on Sony’s higher-end digital cinema models such as the PMW-F5 and F55.
The low-light beast from Sony is due to hit the shelves in July (fingers crossed) and in the meantime, Ben Pilling – Technical Marketing Manager for Digital Imaging for Sony, gives us a hands-on overview of the capabilities of the incredible Sony Alpha 7s in the video below.
