It’s time for the next great A7s reviews and work roundup! And til now I didn’t find one single reviewer hating the A7s. Quite the opposite…all do love the cam!
Josh McLeod did a full model shooting with the A7s:
Lately I seem to be shooting more and more with the Sony cameras, and the more I shoot with them the more I like them (both the A7 and A7s). I love pretty much everything about them, and for my shooting style they are pretty close to the perfect tool.
EosHD posted the second part of the A7s review:
The Sony A7S is the first camera to really beat the Canon 5D Mark III across the board at almost every level for both stills and video, especially the latter. The A7R did not have the video quality to rival the Canon, but the A7S is a different proposition altogether and raises the bar to another level, possibly signalling the end of DSLR domination in this area at the same time. I can think of no reason to shoot on stock Canon 5D Mark III video settings when you can shoot XAVC-S on the A7S.
Imaging Resource posted the second part of their A7s shooter report:
I love the shoot-anywhere-in-any-lighting capabilities with the A7S’ insane high ISO sensitivity, and the smaller 12MP images are a breeze to work with on most any computer and save a ton of space on hard drives and memory cards. Plus, the solid build and cool design make it easy and comfortable to use, and the completely silent shooting mode makes the Sony A7S great for candid street, travel and event photography.
Slow motion and low light test at Westcoastvisualfx:
Overall, I feel this camera meets and exceeds my needs allowing me to shoot in greater variety of situations more efficiently and quickly. I love the menu system, and do not mind the record button being on the right. You have to be careful with the rolling shutter, which when shooting cinematically is not a problem. The low light is so fun to play with, and I am very impressed with the slow motion. There are so many benefits to this camera over the Mark III and even the 7d Mark II (Not even release yet). I was able to switch without a problem. Oh, and it takes a pretty great photo too.

Full Spanish A7s review at Quesabesde and said it’s the new “reina de la noche”…Queen of the night :)
Jeffrey sent me this: “I recently competed in Pittsburgh PA’s first ever 48 Hour Horror Film Project. It’s a film festival in which you are given certain elements to put into a film and you have 48 hours to write a script, shoot it, and edit a short movie, and my film, “RUNNER”, took the runner up prize in the festival. The reason I am telling you this is because the film was shot entirely on an a7s in a dimly lit basement and a dark park. Most of the shots in the basement were filmed with only one or two 60 watt lightbulbs to light the whole scene, and the images look great.
I would be flattered if you would be interested in sharing it on your site if you need some Halloween type content for the 31st. I’m very proud of the film, even with the few flaws it has — remember it was written, shot and edited in just two days. Also, if you do decide to use it, be sure to mention that it is a horror film, so it may not be safe for work, or for small children. Here it is: http://youtu.be/aTC9wd47ZQo”
Andy: “My team and I made a part time lapse/part urban exploration video of Miami shot with the Sony A7S, filmed entirely with just moonlight and street lights as light sources. The middle portion of the video was shot on Miami Beach under a full moon at 2 am (you can see the sequence of shots begin at the 1:06 mark of the video), and we were really stunned and satisfied with the results. Everything came out surreal, almost as if there were a green screen or dreamy backdrop against the ocean. Almost CGI like, but much more natural than CGI. I’ve included a link to view the video below. We’d really appreciate your feedback, and if you like the video, please feel free to post on your site! We’d truly be flattered! Thanks again for being such a great site! Link to video: https://vimeo.com/109654084”
