New A7s reviews. Behiri: “say goodbye to the Mark III”.


Sleep, eat, taste wine and relax! – Shot on a Sony A7s from Johnnie Behiri on Vimeo.

BBC cameraman Johnni Behiri posted his A7s review at Cinema5D (video on top). He writes:

The direct competitor to this camera is naturally the Canon 5D Mark III. Personally, I think it is time to move on and say goodbye to the Mark III. You now have an amazingly sharp looking video camera that records in a new robust codec (XAVC S), very small with a build in great OLED EVF and last but not least, also a lowlight king. I also have to had that the audio recorded directly to the A7s is much better then the one recorded on the Mark III because of better internal preamps. All in all, if you are looking for a working tool that is small enough to look “un-professional” yet one that records great looking video footage at a price which is not modest but affordable, look no further. The Sony A7s is your best friend.

Steve Huff also posted his full A7s review and writes:

For me, this is the camera to beat for 2014. So far, my pick for camera of the year. For me, if I add in the Voigtlander 15, Voigtlander 35 1.2 and the Sony 55 1.8 and I have a camera and lens combo that can do just about anything I ask of it, for my needs.

Meike Extension Tube Review- the first part by Menachem Goldstein.


A picture of my a6000 with both tubes attached to my 50mm f1.8

Meike Automatic Extension Tube For Sony E-Mount

Note: Although I had planned to do a image quality test of the sony a6000, I realized that I do not have a fair frame of reference, since I don’t own more than a couple bodies. Instead, I have decided to focus on reviewing the lenses and accessories, that are in my possession, at least until my other priorities take over (like, making a living for my family). I have decided to start with a budget accessory which could be quite useful to the owner of an e mount camera. This evaluation will hopefully be helpful to those who are interested in purchasing a product of this genre.

Introduction- Context and Competition:
