Sony A7S III sensor data-sheet leaks showing 4K at 480fps

Comment on the forum

More specifications have leaked about Sony’s 36 megapixel full frame 8K sensor.

The above was posted on the EOSHD Forum by a source who has been right before. There is still a very small chance it could be a fake, so treat this firmly as rumour territory for now.

I am sure 8K will be implemented in-camera, otherwise, why go to the effort to create a native 8K sensor in the first place?

As for the 3840 x 1080 mode at 480fps, I think there’s a good chance this will be on the A7S III as well.

The sensor is designed for native 8K at 60p in 10bit. The full list of readout modes is below:

It’s also a possibility the sensor is for a full frame version of the Sony FS7 Mark II.

Although the 3:2 and multi-aspect ratio design points to it being for stills use.
