Sony A7S III


Recommended Posts

Got myself A7SIII and tested it against A7III. I've noticed that when I record in Slog2 or Slog3, A7III appears brighter despite having the same settings. It's about 1/3 to 1/5 stop brighter than A7SIII. When I shoot with PP off, everything looks the same.
Has anyone experienced this issue?

You could literally post a frame from R5 or Arri Alexa, say it's a Sony A7siii frame and someone would say the color isnt that good and that something is wrong with the skin tones.

These recent camera releases have resulted in a significant amount of velocity  and trolling right across the web.  Every camera is good these days. Every single one. Nor is a single one of them

Some tests and a review from Brandon Li. Chris

Hi Andrew I love the Canon Color V4 on my Sony A7RIII. I have the Sony A7SIII. I'm struggling with getting Canon colors on that. Is this new release for the Sony A7SIII... if so when you be releasing? Thank you!

This commissioned skateboarding video was shot using the fx3, but it used the features that the a7s iii has: 120p 4K, all intra-codec to minimize motion artifacts, IBIS, good AF, and the parfocal behavior of the 28-60mm lens.

The expressions of the skateboarder as he fails over and over and then nails it, twice, are the foci.

Beautiful!

Getting one for myself soon. Time to finally step my game from the infamous GH5. Still trying to wrap my head around which lenses to grab. 

I want Sigma 28-70 2.8 as a main workhorse lens

Samyang 35 1.8 for gimbal work and absurd amount of bokeh

And for wide, I am torn between Tamrons 20mm semi-macro and 17-28. I can get the latter for around 600 usd. 

But I do love macro and Samyang and Tamron 20 2.8 have almost the same weight, which will let me swap them on the gimbal without much rebalancing. Hard choice.

Funny, I have the almost exact setup minus the Tamron 20. The sigma 24-70, Tamron 17-28 and Samyang 35 are all great. The 17-28 is such a great wide. I will also use a close focus adaptor on the 35 to have some macro work along with using it on my 75 Samyang.

So I got A7S3 and a bunch of questions along with it. 

1. There is no active stab in S&q, but why? I want to record in 60p and view it in 24p so I know what I shoot. Is there any other way to do it with active stab? 

2. When I connect my hdmi monitor, the camera screen goes black. How should I tap to focus now? Is there a way to keep my display on?

I have figured it out myself:

1. Its possible with 2.0 firmware upgrade. Hurray!

2. Also possible, need to turn off HDMI display in settings

I've got into an extremely wired situation. I've been using a Lexar V60 card that worked perfectly with all the A7SIII recording modes I need except 240fps. Sony wants a V90 for that. So I bought a separate card for that option. I went with a Kingston Canvas React Plus which has nice reviews and scored a second place after Sony own card on a Sony A7S3 speed test (you can observe it here - https://www.memorycard.guru/-Cameras/Sony-Alpha-7s-III). So.. imagine my surprise, when I injected the card in the camera, formated it there.. and  nothing worked! It records only as a V30. Not even V60 material is recorded and of course no V90! Sony gives me warnings and won't let me record anything rather than 4k24 most basic codec stuff! 

Anybody has any idea? I wrote to Kingston already.

I did a CrystalDisk test on my PC and it shows 308 read and 244 write speed.
