Second part of the FS7 4K FE camcorder review at TheCameraStoreTV.

The second part of the big FS7 review really proves how Sony is capable of learning and listening to create a superb camcorder. It’s an almost perfect camera as stated by the TCSTV team.

I do hope Sony will put the same kind of effort when developing cameras. So please Sony, make us a nice Sony A9 that really suits for pro photography! :)

New A7II review at CameraLabs: “has become my favourite in the full-frame Alpha mirrorless series”

SonyA7IIscore

The Pros and Cons list about the A7II.

Gordon from CameraLabs (Click here) posted his full A7II review and writes:

I can tell you this though: when the choice was between the A7 and the A7r, I’d have gone for the latter as the former failed to deliver significant benefits in handling. But now with the improved grip, better AF and stabilised sensor, the A7 Mark II has become a much more usable camera, and one I much preferred using to either the A7 or A7r, even with the latter’s extra resolution. Indeed since I’m not a pro video shooter the A7 Mark II has become my favourite in the full-frame Alpha mirrorless series and a model I can easily recommend even with the caveats mentioned above.
I can’t however imagine this will be the only full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony this year, so once again if video or ultra high resolution stills are your priorities, I’d either wait for a new model or snap up one of the originals. It’s also worth mentioning the original A7, which despite being first generation, currently represents great value if you simply want the most affordable entry to full-frame mirrorless photography.

FS7 4K E-mount camcorder review by TheCameraStoreTV.

Even non camcorder fans should look at TheCameraStore’s Sony FS7 4K camcorder review. You really will see  how important that camera is to push the E-mount system as a whole. And Sony really listened to the customers to make a close to perfect camera. Something we hope will happen with future E-mount photo cameras too!

Sony A7s Low Light test for CNN by Philip Bloom. What I Learned from the A7s by David Dugdale.

SUPERMOON: Low light test for CNN’s “The Wonder List” from Philip Bloom on Vimeo.

The Sony A7s is really the one camera that gathers most of the attention from blggers, photographers and filmmakers:

Philip Bloom posted the video I embedded on top to show the Low Light qualities of the A7s.
David Dugdale posted an article with video with the title “Few Months with the Sony a7S – What I Learned”:

New A7II tests (Dpreview, ThePhoBlographer, Admiringlight).


Sony A7ii Stabilization Test
from Norberto Peña on Vimeo (Shot with the Canon EF 70-200 F/2.8L IS lens at 200mm)

Quick US A7II Stock note. Body only in Stock at BestBuy (Click here). Kit version at Adorama (Click here).

We have a couple of new A7II reviews and image samples:

ThePhoBlographer:

While current Sony A7 owners may be groaning because of the quick refresh to their brand new camera, they can rest assured that the A7 Mk II is really nothing more than a further attempt to snatch up the professional market. This is evident in the small changes. As a current A7 owner though, I won’t be upgrading. I don’t really need image stabilization because I’m a very steady shooter and the autofocus performance of the A7 hasn’t made me scream when shooting–that’s a prize that is awarded to the A7r.
We applaud Sony for their innovation, but we believe that they should time their releases a bit better.

Sony A7 II vs. Sony A6000 – Landscape Use by Admiringlight:

I do think it’s clear that, for landscape use at least, the differences between full-frame and APS-C are not quite as big as is often made out to be. On the flip side, this test doesn’t take into account the other benefits of moving to a full-frame sensor: better noise control and better subject isolation with fast lenses, and the A7 II definitely does still have an advantage in image quality here. It’s just rather small.

Real-world samples: Sony Alpha 7 II in Kauai (Dpreview).
