New A7rII videos (Newsshooter 5-axis test)

Newsshooter tested the A7rII 5 axis system:

In short the 5-axis stabilisation worked a treat. As long as I was relatively steady the system kicked in and provided the extra bit of stability I needed. I found I could move very quickly between shots and get results that looked they had been shot using a shoulder rig.

Alex Pasquini posted that slow motion A7rII test video (via our SonyAlphaForum)

BBC camera man Johnnie Behiri posted the A7rII first impression review from a film makers point of view on Cinema5D. And he simply say:

Let me summarise it for you in two sentences:
– Sell your A7s (or any other photo camera that shoots video you currently have)
– Buy the new Sony A7rII ….

LOL :)
For him the A7rII “is currently the best photo camera that shoots video in the market“. Here is a video he shot with the A7rII:

New Batis lens test by Cinema5D (great video), Popphoto, Saihati and Miguel Quiles.


“Those Goddamn Hippies” – DRIFT – Music Video – ZEISS Batis Review
from Nino Leitner on Vimeo.

And Nino Leitner from Cinema5D posted that great video shot with the new Batis lenses and writes:

The Batis lenses should be considered by video shooters who need a very lightweight option on their E-Mount cameras, who don’t work with a focus puller or focus marks, or who own a gimbal like a MoVi M5 or DJI Ronin, as the low weight is perfect for these devices. Photographers who shoot on E-Mount cameras like the A7 series should get the Batis lenses if they are looking for decent autofocus, low weight and a very sexy new kind of bokeh. It goes without saying that these lenses are extremely sharp, which is usually ZEISS’s top priority when designing lenses. They are certainly not as sharp as the OTUS line, but they also come in in a different price bracket!

Popphoto posted a short Batis lens hands-on report:

In terms of sharpness, my eyeball tests suggests what you might already suspect: When you get the focus right, both lenses are extremely sharp, even under scrutiny available thanks to the A7r’s big resolution. The bokeh on both lenses is nice and smooth, with round specular highlights thanks to the circular aperture.

Miguel Quiles shot a BTS video for Rangefinder Magazine using the new Batis 85 and the A7II: youtube.com/watch?v=sMaX6gAH4FM
