Sony A7S III Sensor Specs Leak – 4K/60p and Quad Bayer 15 megapixel (with possible 61MP mode)

Comment on the EOSHD Forum

The sensor for the A7S III has leaked on the EOSHD Forum, with 4K/60p and an HDR mode in 4K and at 15 megapixels thanks to a Quad Bayer pattern. If you care to take a look at the specs here – you’ll notice a few interesting things.
