Comment on the forum

A particularly strange virus has spread across the internet, which seems to infect people defending Canon’s latest cameras, shorn of the cinema frame rate 24p.

Will the Sony A7S III have a 48 / 12 megapixel Quad Bayer Exmor RS sensor?

Comment on the forum

I am convinced Sony will go in the direction of Quad Bayer stacked CMOS sensors for the A7S series and it’s a major reason we’ve waited so long for it. I also think the FS5’s electronically variable ND filter will be in the camera too.

Quad Bayer answers the conundrum of balancing low light performance and megapixel count. It is the best of both worlds and allows a 48 megapixel 8000 x 6000 image and 8K video – at the same time as 4000 x 3000 and 4K video with better low light performance.

The proof of concept is sitting in my hands right now. Step forward the mighty Xiaomi Mi 9 smartphone with 48 megapixel Sony Quad Bayer sensor and 960fps slow-mo.

Interesting insights into the new Sony A7R II and RX sensor technology

Sony A7R II

This is a fantastic Sony interview at Imaging Resource, where Dave Etchells was able to extract a huge amount of technical info about how the new Sony sensors are able to deliver 4K video from 42MP. On top of that there’s less rolling shutter and better low light performance than the previous 36MP full frame and 20MP 1″ sensors.
