Cinema5D helped on the A7s development. And believes camera price will be around $2000.

Cinema5D had the pleasure to help Sony with suggestions for the A7s development:

The cinema5D team was included in the design process and what Sony showed us yesterday was nothing short of a very pleasing result. They had listened to the shooters when they built this camera.

Good to hear Sony worked hard to get feedback from important sites. But like all other sites also Cinema5D isn’t sure about the final price:

There is no pricing on this camera yet, but it can be presumed that it will be in the $2000 range just like the previous A7 models.

By the way, notice the confusion on the price. writes the price is a couple fo times higher than that of the A7.

Den Lennie Sony A7s video and F.Johnson interview. And why the A7s is great for photographers.

Let me catch up with some A7s related news:

On top you can see Frederick Van Johnson youtube video interview about the Sony A7s. And a must watch video is this one posted by Den Lennie who is actually one of the few that had the lucky chance to test the A7s:

An absolute must read article for photogrpahers wondeirng why the A7s is that interesting has been written by Soundimagesplus (Click here):

The quality of the image is at least as important, if not more so, than how big it is.And that is where a camera like the A7s will really score. Better performance at high ISO’s means faster shutter speeds, narrower apertures and cleaner, sharper images. The photographer is also freed from the constraints of tripods, flash and lighting rigs in many instances. And 12MP is certainly enough for most publishing requirements. Sensors that improve dynamic range and allow us to document the non-sunlit world with clarity and definition is surely something we should applaud and encourage as photographers. I’m actually more excited about this camera than I thought I would be.

Sony a7S interview with Kanta Yamamoto (Newsshooter). A7s has stainless steel mount!

Some of the interesting tidbits:

- A7s has been developed along the A7 and A7r cameras
- development took 2-3 years
- Reason why the camera doesn’t record 4K internally is because of power consumption and because of the heating produced by the large sensor
- The one big physical change compared ot th A7-A7r is that the A7s has a stainless steel made mount.
