Sony A7S footage topic

It's early days, but I see a lot of potential in the A7s image. But I have a problem with its  the pretty extreme rolling shutter. It's just been measured to 30.5ms, which is probably the worst RS since the Nikon D90 at 33ms. The GH4 is about 13ms. So the A7s will need very careful handling.

The more i play with the footage the more i want it. It's like Alexa in some way after careful handling... but I think I prefer it in some ways. Don't tell anyone though. The noise is pretty high on S-Log when you pause, but in motion it's fine.


Rolling shutter is so sad though.


True to form, Sony have one feature that really sucks in an otherwise excellent product :( such a slow read time at 12MP. Maybe it's a heat issue in the small body?

JG -


I don't think it's the heat. Don't think they put much effort into controlling RS - (had to laugh at my own joke - you're right, it's god awful).


Why would they make a product better than their own F55? Would not make logical sense. No?

The colour tones in A7s are so cool in tone. For some reason it can't do green properly. But nor can my favorite 35mm stock, the cheapo Kodak Ultramax 400.


All the trees and so on have a weird plastic look, but to be honest the overall tonality is more film-like in feeling. It doesn't feel "real", but it feels really really good.
