Sony A7S III (Or will it be A7H?) and Canon EOS R5 both set for July launch as Sony officially hint at video specs

Sony has confirmed that the A7S III is finally on the way this Summer, likely in July to coincide with the big Canon rivals – EOS R5 and R6.

I have some more information on what we can expect from the new flagship full frame mirrorless cameras.

Will Sony end the A7S line?

NAB and IBC have been and gone. No A7S III. In Sony’s most recent marketing presentations, they outline a three-pronged strategy for cameras – “Basic”, “Resolution” and “Speed”. This is a change from the previous strategy of “Basic”, “Resolution” and “Low Light + Video” and with the A7 III having such good low light and video capabilities, will Sony bother with an A7S III?

Try this when shooting S-LOG 3 on Sony cameras

One of the most common problems with S-LOG 3 is that it’s very counter-intuitive to expose it! Harv Video/Audio Stuff on YouTube says he is getting far better results with far less noise in the shadows with his technique, shown in the video above.

I highly recommend trying it yourself.

These magic settings are a MUST HAVE.

Don’t take my word for it though. I am biased! Other filmmakers and Sony users have been busy shooting with EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and Pro LOG. It’s interesting to take a look at some of the reviews, tests and films shot this way.

A camera test with a difference – multicam shoot for “Bunny Suit” with the Sony A7S, Nikon D750 and 5 others

Cameron Laing / Sony A7S
Berlin based band Bunny Suit (follow here on Facebook / SoundCloud) recently went into Temeplton Studio to lay down some tracks.

We decided to shoot a live video of the recording which would then be synced up perfectly with the final mix of the tracks in post.

The Sony A7S in this shoot is graded using the lovely “Manchester” LUT from James Miller’s Deluts pack. But there were 6 other cameras backing it up. Can you tell which is which!?

Positive Locking Canon EF and Nikon adapters by Ciecio7 (for E-Mount / Sony A7S / Micro 43 / GH4 / FZ Mount / F55)

In my opinion these are some of the best adapters currently on the market for Canon & Nikon glass.

They take a normal Canon or Nikon lens and turn it into a PL mount (positive locking) with no play between the mount and lens.
