Looks like Armando Ferriera is collaborating with director Lukas Colombo and Kondor Blue on another epic real world production test, this time with the a7s III!
Some alarmists are saying Sony must immediately respond to Canon’s salvo by launching their own 8K mirrorless, but shouldn’t the real question be: should Canon develop an a7s III-like camera with insane ISO 16000 see-in-the-dark ability, 4K 120p no line-skipping, 13 stops of dynamic range, no two-hour cool-off times after shooting for twenty minutes, a… Read More
There’s a widespread belief that Canon’s suddenly leapfrogged Sony by a couple of generations just because they offer what they’re calling 8K video in their R5; that squeezing more and smaller pixels onto the surface of the sensor magically makes it better: and some think Sony has to respond with their own 8K mirrorless camera.… Read More
I worried that without an optical low pass filter, the 12 megapixel sensor of the a7s III would suffer from artifacts that are all but impossible to remove in post. But Sony claims their new processor is supposed to help suppress moire and artifacts, and after watching Manny Ortiz’s video I was speechless at how… Read More
A few of the latest a7s III specs rumors from SAR, this time from several unproven sources. AF system is the almost the same as a7r4 4K RAW output yes, but not sure if it supports 4K 120fps RAW output. Firmware is not available, apparently Atomos is working on it to support a7sIII’s hdmi signal.… Read More
The rumored price of the a7s III is $3,500.00. Throw in an Atomos, cables, batteries, SSD, cage and magic arm and we’re looking at $4,500.00. Let’s be straight: we weren’t demanding full HDMI out, XLR inputs, false color or vectorscopes – all that most hybrid video shooters were asking for was a darn flippy screen,… Read More
Here’s a screen grab from the model shoot yesterday, shot with the Sony a7 III, FE 85mm f/1.8, Hoya ND8, S-log2, ISO 800, f/6.3 and graded with Leeming LUT Pro. Very excited about the new LUTs, and S-log2 is now my very favorite picture profile; but the banding in the sky just kills it for… Read More
If the 8K RAW sample footage I downloaded and imported into Resolve last night was indeed from the R5, it is a dream to work with. Just a few points though about the RAW craze, ProRes RAW, Sony and what exactly we are looking for in a hybrid camera: 1. Most people cannot grade RAW.… Read More
