Sony A7S II and it’s Not so Darkest Secret – Low light

By on November 10, 2015

There is really no way no hide my excitement when I talk about this lovely camera (Sony A7S II). When the first one was released, I felt in love with its low light capability. Now Sony has given us another magnificent piece of state of the art technology, I had the urge to write immediately on the subject.

Unfortunately, I’ve been extensively busy and traveling, that finally after a few weeks of its released I have to chance to share my thought with my fellow filmmakers.


Personally, I can’t wait to get my hand on this camera. Like previously said I was completely blown away by the first A7s. Although it only shoots 1080P internally, you still can get 4K through an external recorder. Now that’s not the case anymore with the Sony A7S II since you’re able to shoot 4k internally and up to 120 FPS at 1080P.

I know it sounds really good on paper, but I can assure you it looks even better through your viewfinder, although I haven’t had the chance to personally use the camera. From the videos I’ve seen so far I’m not afraid to claim that is Best Mirrorless Camera released in 2015.

If we take into consideration the Sony A7s II capabilities. This Camera will definitely open up new doors and opportunities to new independent filmmakers with the price point it has. The rest of new cameras out in the market cannot really compete with its ISO Sensitivity and 4K Resolution

Sony A7s II leads to the next level of Mirrorless full frame with an ISO sensitivity of another galaxy, a dynamic range that envy any DSLR, video recording at 4K , WiFi NFC and a five axes optical stabilizer.
