Sony just launched the new DSC-KW1 special page to promote the camera to women. There is also a newly posted official KW1 video on Youtube. But our wifes will not be happy to know that there is still no preorder and price info yet. Although I guess price doesn’t matter when you have such a cute pink perfume-camera gadget in your bag :)

First shortfilm shot with the A7s at High ISO only!

Tyler Bourns posted that first creative shortfilm shot entirely at High ISO (12,000 and 40,000 ISO) with the Sony A7s. He writes:

A short film shot as a test for the new Sony A7S camera. Everything was shot using the metabones ef adapter and rokinon/canon lenses. We made it a point to go with as minimal light as possible and really push the low light capabilities of the camera. Most shots averaged between 12,000 and 40,000 ISO. Feel free to ask questions in the comments.

And SAR reader Joel sent me this:Not a rumour, but you might find this A7s video worth linking…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXNFRA1hTic. It’s interesting because it does something most other cameras couldn’t do. Also, it’s good hip hop dance. The understated filming is better than most professionally made dance video — TV-level pros don’t understand dance, and they insist on cuts and close-ups which break the flow of something that is all about the flow. Cameras like the A7s, and youtube, are starting to let us see and appreciate art that would be dumbed down for mass consumption by TV if they ever showed it.

Sony Tidbits…

Alex:I shot this video for a client on the A7s. If you want to feature it, she would be so happy: http://youtu.be/-WM2pfqfb2A
Details:
• Fs700+A7s combo
• ImpulZ film luts for color grading
• Shot in one day, with another half day for pickups
• Single operator docu style piece for the launch of her new website.
• Canon lenses 16-35 F/2.8L II 70-200 F/2.8 IS I
• Sony 24-70 f/4.0 Surprisingly good in autofocus mode on the Steadicam.

Eugene:I just did a review of new version Mitakon 50mm F0.95 Pro (Dark Knight). When I was looking to get the lens I did not find to many reviews of MKII. Perhaps this could be useful for someone: http://fratkinphoto.blogspot.com/2014/10/low-light-monster-mitakon-50mm-f095.html

Dave:Lol, sometimes incredible high ISO performance backfires. I shot this little clip at ISO 60,000 to give it that edgy, grainy, rough look. But even though the pull in is done digitally (so we’re down to half resolution at the end) it’s still very clean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnXjKqFkPSc

Alexandre:I shot some pictures during a Wedding Fashion Show in Bangkok last week-end. I used my Sony A7R+FE35mmF2.8 and the Flash Sony HVL-F43M. You can see here the most beautiful models from this show: http://thailandfacts.com/wedding-fashion-show-bangkok-thailand-we-2014/

Shot with a Sony A7S and Rokinon 24mm T1.5 at 25600 iso with no noise reduction applied.
