Sony A7S II review

 

Sony's A7S II is the ultimate low-light shooter for night owls.

Just like its predecessor, the A7S II earns our Recommended badge, given the enhancements. There’s a lot of cool technology and it’s a great-performing camera, but it isn’t for everyone. This camera is geared to specific shooters who really like...

Next-gen Sony A7S II full-frame mirrorless now does 4K on the inside

 

Sony's full-frame Mark II hat trick concludes with an update to its low-light and video-optimized mirrorless model.

Sony A7S II Review

 

The Sony A7S II takes the A7S to the next level. The redesigned camera body, improved autofocus, and bevy of new features make the A7S II a very capable full-frame mirrorless camera no matter the lighting conditions. With its 12.2-megapixel full-frame...

Comfortable and surprisingly compact camera body; Improved low light performance; Built-in image stabilization; Wide range of usable ISOs; More sophisticated autofocus performance; Excellent video capabilities

Relatively low resolution; Mediocre continuous shooting performance; No built-in flash; No losslessly compressed RAW option

Sony A7S II review

 

The sequel to Sony's movie master is even better than before

Superb video quality ; Great in low light conditions ; Metal-bodied toughness

It’s really expensive

A marked improvement on the already-impressive A7S, delivering top class low light and video performance.

Sony Alpha A7S Mark II Expert Review

 

Read our full review of the new Sony Alpha A7S Mark II - the 12 megapixel camera with 4K video recording.

Improved handling and design ; Excellent image quality ; Excellent ISO range ; 4K video can be recorded internally ; MicroUSB charging / power ; 5-axis image stabilisation ; Wi-Fi and NFC ; Sony PlayMemories Apps ; Dual-axis electronic level

12 megapixels may not be enough for stills photographers ; Camera video fussy about memory cards ; Shorter battery life than previous model ; Focus struggled in low-light at times

For the serious videographer, or movie maker, the advanced options available for high quality video output that the Sony Alpha A7S Mark II provides will be most welcome, and compared to some of the competition, particularly traditional video cameras,...

Great Camera but why no Time Lapse?

 

I bought this camera because of it's 4k, low-light and slo-mo capabilities, it did not disappoint in any of these respects. In fact I have since bought a second one so that I can keep one attached to a Ronin M Gimbal or Edelkrone Slider system and the...

Good low light cine camera

 

I am very pleased with the performance of this camera in low light conditions, but this becomes difficult on bright days externally. The camera could do with an internal ND filter or warning that ND filters are really necessary to avoid over exposure....

Slow motion, low light capabilities

 

Awesome piece of equipment with great features. Brilliant low light capabilities, great ergonomics.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Awesome Quality Camera

 

Most highly recommend ! You will not be disappointed!

Just about everything. I have a GH-4 I use for 4K Video and this I also use for video, but the stills are amazing. Low Light King ! Exudes quality in every aspect! Great Price!

Battery Life No fully articulating touchscreen The menu system should be a little more intuitive Not many native lenses, but many more coming. Soem G Master Series just released.

Consumer review (sony.com)

A very mixed mind about this one

 

I feel like I have been sold a broken product, the skew introduced due to the poor image sensor scanning speed, is so pronounced that most moving style shots, or shots where the subjects move quickly through the frame are useless and have to be binned....
