Image on top shows the Sony A7s sensor.

This comes via one of my highly trusted sources. He got news about a new Sony camcorder prototype having the same Sony A7s sensor and internal 4K recording. The source added that he doesn’t know yet when that camcorder will be announced. Let’s hope that is the new FS camcorder that Sony will announce on September 11.

New Sony A7rII tests: Trick to save battery life at Fred Miranda. Scary review conclusion at DigitalKamera.


Sony A7Rii Buffer Test, RAW and all Jpeg formats in High Continuous Mode by Jason Lanier

Fred Miranda:There is a way to turn OFF the monitor LCD using a custom button. This method will turn off both EVF and Monitor and save battery life.

Florian:The well know review portal (Martin Vieten is one of their reviewers) has tested the A7RII together with the 1.8/55 and they found out that it perform massively worse in the corners with the A7RII compared to the A7R. Wide open the resolution drops as low as 32 lp/mm and only gets back to the level of the A7R at around f4!!!
