Slides from the Sony A7sII presentation!


The new Sony A7sII can now be preordered at Sony A7sII at Amazon, BHphoto, FocusCamera, Adorama and in Europe at WexUK. In Asia soon at Digitalrev.

Bruno from Lesnumeriques posted those slides from the official Sony A7sII presentation. There are a couple of interesting insights:

  1. The Large sensor video camera market is increasing (P.S.: larger than 2/3 inch sensor)
  2. In Europe most A7s buyers were professionals
  3. A7sII has 2 stops ISO advantage over the new A7rII

Still Planet5D has some doubts about the new A7sII: “The New Sony A7s II is Great, But Is It Awesome Enough To Get You To Upgrade?”.
