I am going to have to be quite hard on Sony in this article, but it comes from a place of love.
I was able to find a Nikon Z7 in Berlin and decided to shoot with it at least until the Z6 comes out, when I’ll reassess whether it is worth 3800 euros. Nevertheless, this camera tells us 90% of what we need to know about that one too.
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?
Sony has been listening to the feedback surrounding the A6300 and A6500, which had quite a severe rolling shutter (30ms+) in 4K.
They have just announced a new high resolution 31MP (over 6K) APS-C / Super 35mm sensor with a global shutter.
