Ashley:If you were looking for some content to post on your page, there are a couple Sony a7 specific tutorial videos we posted a short time ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zX2G5TxyHfo. This one will compare the process and end result of the in camera panoramic mode to a hand stitched panoramic.  It also shows who simple the process is for the Sony a7 versus going through Photoshop and putting the panoramic together.
This video will show how to setup the time lapse application available on the NEX cameras, as well as showing some time lapse examples made from the a7 and the application: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgMhc-ROdqQ

(SR2) Soon to be announced curved sensor RX1s has similar A7s noise performance.

A new source reported that the name of the first curved sensor FF camera could be “RX1s”. It features a very compact Zeiss 35mm f/1.8 lens. He also said the curved sensor will allow a  “Sensitivity performance almost similar to A7S.“.

Sounds exciting!

Brandon:Thought I’d share a quick timelapse video I took of the Independence Day fireworks show in Washington, DC on July 4, 2014. All pictures and timelapse were taken with the Sony A7 + Zeiss FE 35mm lens. Photo’s were post-processed in Adobe Lightroom, but hte timelapse was 100% compiled using the Sony Timelapse in-camera application as a video. I wanted to see what the camera could do for hobbyists like myself with minimum time and effort. Video: http://youtu.be/ZZgkhZZBs4w
