More specifications have leaked about Sony’s 36 megapixel full frame 8K sensor.
Sony has developed a duo of 8K capable full frame sensors, which will soon be released in two Sony cameras. That means out of the upcoming A7S III and A9 II, only one of those will feature the high resolution 8K 36MP sensor, with the 60MP sensor likely going into the A7R IV. Interestingly Sony will make the sensors available to customers, which mean the 8K 36MP sensor could see its way into a full frame Panasonic GH or SH camera.
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?
