(SR5) Sony A7s records 4K in XAVCs codec and with 4k clean output .

Share

A7s records in XAVCS format which is a consumer version of the XAVC format (see some of the main differences above).

According to two of our sources the A7s records 4K using Sony’s XAVCs codec. From Wikipedia:

“XAVC S supports resolutions up to 3840 × 2160, uses MP4 as the container format, and uses either AAC or LPCM for the audio  As example use in Sony FDR-AX100 4K Ultra HD consumer camcorder.”

A source also told me the camera has a clean 4K clean output but doesn’t record a clean 4K on SD cards. The source didn’t specify if with “clean” he means 4K at 10 bit and 4:2:2. Also same as the main competitor, the Panasonic GH4.

Note: The FDR-AX100 has following recording options and I guess these will more or less match with those of the A7s:

UHD 4K
XAVC S
3840 x 2160p / 30 fps
3840 x 2160p / 24 fps

High Definition
XAVC S
1920 x 1080 / 60 fps
1920 x 1080 / 30 fps
1920 x 1080 / 24 fps
AVCHD
1920 x 1080p / 60 fps
1920 x 1080p / 24 fps
1920 x 1080i / 60 fps
1440 x 1080i / 60 fps

MP4
1280 x 720p / 30 fps

(SR5) Sony A7s has a brand new 12 Megapixel Full Frame sensor!

Share

image on top shows current A7.

The Sony A7s keeps surprising us! It will get announced on Sunday already(!) and it will record 4K video. And now I just learned it features a new 12 megapixel Full Frame sensor! It completely goes in the opposite direction of the market who calls for “more megapixels”. And I think Sony’s move makes a lot of sense: Larger pixels, cleaner high ISO images, more fps! This is going to be an amazing 4K camera!

Reminder: The A7s will be unveiled live at 2pm in Las Vegas (on Sunday). You can follow the live video stream on SAR!!! This is the time in other time zones:

– 6am (06:00) Tokyo time on Monday April 7

Personal note: Sorry for my messy English and the many typos. I am travelling across Tuscany and some places have bad connection. I am working in extreme conditions :(

(SR5) Sony A7s will shoot 4k video! Live announcement at 2pm Las Vegas time on Sunday!

Share

Follow the live stream on SAR!

At 7pm on Sunday (April 6) in Las Vegas Sony will announce the new Full Frame E-mount camera called “Sony A7s”. And according to one of our trusted sources it can record 4K video! Note: Today Sony announced a 4K partnerhsip with Fifa (more about it at Newsshooter). I am still not 100% sure yet if it will also feature the superb A6000 hybrid AF. But my guess is that the answer is YES and this could be the reason why it has the “S” suffix for “Speed” :)

A7s unveiling: You can follow the live stream presentation here on SonyAlphaRumors at 2pm Las Vegas time. So you can see the A7s as first and live here on SAR! Other time zones:
– 5pm New York time on Sunday April 6
– 10pm (22:00) London time on Sunday April 6
– 11pm (23:00) Berlin time on Sunday April 6
– 6am (06:00) Tokyo time on Monday April 7

(SR5) Confirmed via multiple sources: New “A7s” FF E-mount to be announced on Sunday! Follow SAR!

Share

Sony A7s should have same body design as A7 (image on top shows current A7).

Over a month ago I got a rumor about a new Sony FE camera. I was pretty sure it wouldn’t come any time soon but I proved to be wrong! Within a couple of hours I got confirmation via five(!) trusted sources that Sony worked on a very secret kept project. And this brand new camera will be unveiled on Sunday (April 6) in Las Vegas!!!!!!!!!!! I will embedd the live stream on SAR!

UPDATE: A7s will be unveiled live at 2pm in Las Vegas (on Sunday). You cna follow the live video stream on SAR!!! This is the time in other time zones:
– 5pm New York time on Sunday April 6
– 10pm (22:00) London time on Sunday April 6
– 11pm (23:00) Berlin time on Sunday April 6
– 6am (06:00) Tokyo time on Monday April 7

I am continually working to try to grab some specs. All I can tell you for now is that the camera name is “A7s“. It’s not a Silver A7 as some suggested :) And it will not replace the A7 or A7r. It’s a brand new Full Frame Emount camera. Only few know about it and that’s why it is hard to get specs. So please be patient and follow SAR via RSS feed (Click here), Twitter (Click here) or Facebook fan page (Click here) to not miss any rumor that will be posted between now and the announcement!

Stay tuned!!!!!!!!
