Full Sony A7s review by Matt Allard (Newsshooter editor)


Sony A7s Review from Matthew Allard ACS on Vimeo.

So what does Newsshooter editor Matt Allard think about the Sony A7s? He just posted that video review and he says:

The A7s is quite unique for a hybrid stills/video camera because it bucks the trend of going for ever increasing megapixels. Instead Sony have used a full frame 12MP CMOS sensor – which results in increased low light sensitivity and dynamic range. This camera really is the new low light king – I can say that without a shadow of a doubt.

Sony A7s preorder in USA/CA at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Sony USA, Sony Canada.
