A first look at the Sony Alpha 7S 12MP full frame with 4K output | Digital Photography Review

A first look at the Sony Alpha 7S 12MP full frame with 4K output | Digital Photography Review | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

The Sony Alpha 7S is the first full frame camera able to read out its entire sensor fast enough to output 4K 30p footage from its entire sensor. Or, at least, the full width of its sensor: it only outputs the 16:9 region of its 3:2 36x24mm sensor. Importantly, though: no pixel binning or line skipping are employed. The Alpha 7S is also the first Alpha product to expand beyond the AVCHD standard (with its relatively restrictive bitrates). In addition, the A7S makes use of the extensible XAVC S standard - allowing it to record 1080p footage at 60p, 30p or 24p at 50Mbps. The A7S also offers a Dual Record feature that allows it to capture both a 50Mbps XAVC S stream and a low bitrate 720p stream that is easier to share......

Sony announces full-frame A7s camera that can practically shoot 4K video in the dark | The Verge

Sony announces full-frame A7s camera that can practically shoot 4K video in the dark | The Verge | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

Sony's first mirrorless, full-frame cameras were designed to impress photographers. Now the Japanese company is going after videographers with a new variant of its 35mm, interchangeable lens camera, dubbed the A7s. For those who shoot video, the standout feature is that the A7s (unlike the A7 and A7r before it) can shoot full 4K video. But there's another impressive improvement in the A7s: a maximum ISO of 409,600. That's the top end of its expanded sensitivity range, so it's safe to assume that results at that level will be a bit ratty, but it's an incredible number that matches Nikon's pro-level D4S. With sensitivity like that, the camera should be able to see in the dark (though focusing with such little light may be a problem). To achieve that kind of sensitivity, it's only natural that Sony would have to decrease the resolution of the full-frame sensor. The A7s has a resolution of 12.2 megapixels, compared to 24.3 and 36.4 in the A7 and A7r, respectively........

Sony A7R, 35FE and Sigma DP3 Merrill | The Visual Experience | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

Despite of all the voices “against” the Sony A7R (shutter slam, light leaking, confusing menu) the small Sony is a great camera, with a very good sensor. Paired with the Sony Zeiss 35 it gives you a lot in a small package: great output quality, small size, acceptable autofocus and reasonable FPS in continuous shooting mode. I’ve used it very much over the last months, paired with the Canon 17TSE, realizing some of the photographs of Touch Ground and in a low-light street photography scenario in Scicli (Sicily) a wonderful baroque town, shooting @ISO 6.400, 1/80s, f2.8 without any problems in focusing and in performance. 450 photos on a Patona battery (airplane mode), much more than the original Sony battery… Very pleased with it, it is similar to my Fuji X100s in terms of speed but with… 36 Mpixel available….....

It’s Circus Time with the Leica M | John Goerten

It’s Circus Time with the Leica M | John Goerten | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

During the Christmas and New Year period, Trier, the oldest city of Germany, traditionally is hosting a circus with a non-permanent tent and a non-permanent group of artists. http://weihnachtscircus-trier.romanza-circusproduction.de. All shows during this period are sold out. Children get exited about the glamor of the world of the Salvini-Clowns, the Sevriukov family with their flying trapezes, Andy Ortmann with his exotic animals and many other artists. So last January I have been with my family to one of the shows. A fotoshooting was of course my main interrest, and I had prepared my Leica M240 with a 90mm f2.8 Elmarit-M lens. Although I was a bit sceptical about the low light performance of this lens, the final results that I achieved were surprisingly good.....

What if Fujifilm were to go full frame? | Mirrorlessons

What if Fujifilm were to go full frame? | Mirrorlessons | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

.... of course many users are questioning what would become of the APS-C line since Fuji has invested a lot of money into it up until now. Well, as several photographers have pointed out, there are many systems that have both APS-C and full frame line-ups, so it wouldn’t really be anything new. Would it make sense? Well, it depends on the point of view from which you analyse the move. The current Fuji X line is certainly a great example of high quality found in compact and light gear. Not as much as the MFT system but wherever the MFT system has some advantages, Fuji has others. The most recent products to come out and the current lens road map clearly show that Fujifilm is building a complete APS-C system that can easily satisfy most of our needs as photographers (both amateur and professional). So why start over with a new system? Isn’t APS-C the best compromise in terms of keeping cameras and lenses small enough without risking a loss in image quality? Isn’t it also the best way to keep costs reasonable .......

Fuji X-Pro 2 Full Frame Thoughts | Jorge Ledesma | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

So the rumor mill is out and a possible Fuji X-Pro 2 is on the horizon for early or mid 2015. As Bob Dylan would say, "the times are changing." The Nikon D600 and Canon 6D came to fruition as affordable full frame cameras, well, not really affordable as $2,000 USD is not cheap by any means but within range of many more I suppose. Then we had the folks at Sony pumping out all sorts of full frame goodness in various shapes and forms and then there is Fujifilm X-Series with brave new sensor technology stirring the full frame pot (5DMK2, D700) and reaching in. The "reaching in" is arguable and I'm sure Dr. Boyer would say I'm way out of touch with sensor reality, but nonetheless, there seems to be a group of photographers that prefers the X-Trans sensor.......

The Sony A7 - 4 months in | James Seymour-Lock | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

I love loved my Canon 5D mk2 dearly but, by God, it was a big heavy fucker. The weight never really bothered me until it came to traveling, and then I found it too heavy and awkward to carry around all day.

I recently sold everything to travel the world, so it just seemed like overkill to keep it. Especially with weight and size restrictions for hand luggage, etc. Many suggested the x100 as the perfect travel camera but being stuck at 30mm for the rest of my life? Fuck that. The Sony A7 was announced while I was going through the ‘sell everything I own quickly, before I leave’ process and on paper it looked perfect, but there were very little reviews on such a new system. And, not having used a Sony camera in a long time, I was sceptical but decided to pre-order it. It was small, full-frame and allowed for interchangeable lenses. This meant I could mount my current Canon lenses to it. It seemed perfect. I hoped it was......

Fujifilm X100S and Sony A7 Comparison | Stephen Ip | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

With my X-Pro1 out of commission and my X-T1 headed back to B&H because of the light leak issue, I thought I would shake things up a bit by renting the Sony A7 and FE 35mm f/2.8 lens. To make things even more interesting, I decided to compare the Sony A7/35mm lens combo with the Fujifilm X100S. Not a scientific comparison based on sharpness and resolution, but more of a real world comparison based on how and what I shoot. Each pair of images below were shot back to back with me standing in the same place. I also tried to compose each pair of images to be identical, but this turned out to be much more difficult than I anticipated. All the images were shot in RAW and then processed using Lightroom 5 and VSCO Film 04. While I didn't use the same VSCO preset for all the images, I did use the same Fuji and Sony variations of the selected preset for each pair of images......

Sony A7r: is it worth spending the extra $$$? | Wim Arys

Sony A7r: is it worth spending the extra $$$? | Wim Arys | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

All this technical mumbo jumbo basically means that Sony has designed the A7r for maximum quality and resolution.

The A7 is aimed more at the enthusiast photographer, coming from a cropped sensor camera, looking to upgrade to a small and compact full frame. This being sad, the point-and-shoot enthusiast will probably be disappointed with the performance of both versions. A good autofocus system for a full frame camera is not an easy task,  there is a bigger surface area to scan and it is a known fact that Sony does not have much experience in this field. Handheld autofocus on both cameras is sluggish in low light, even hunts sometimes in good light, and misses focus all together sometimes. Both cameras work best on stills or at least with a tripod since there is no image stabilisation system......

How does the Sony A7 perform when shooting a fast paced editorial?


I admit, I was a bit nervous, although I have shot a few assignments with the Sony A7 already, shooting in a crowded, public place with natural light is a different story. Speed is important, there really isn’t much time to fiddle with settings and equipment. One has to stay on the move, get the shot, head back to the base, change outfits and do it all over again.....

Sony A7S Review: Preview | Imaging Resource

Sony A7S Review: Preview | Imaging Resource | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

Sony really redefined what full-frame photography could be in the fall of 2013, with the introduction of the A7 and A7R, by far the smallest full-frame, fully-featured interchangeable lens cameras we'd seen to date. Now, the Sony A7S is poised to similarly redefine the world of 4K video and low-light still shooting. Rather than chasing ever more pixels, the Sony A7S takes a conscious step back, featuring an all-new 12.2-megapixel sensor with huge pixels -- by current standards, at least -- as well as some unique tweaks aimed at increasing dynamic range. The combination promises unprecedented low-light performance. By default, the Sony A7S has a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 102,400 equivalents for still imaging, and ISO 200 to 102,400 equivalents for video. This range can be expanded for still shooting to encompass everything from ISO 50 to 409,600 equivalents in still shooting, and ISO 200 to 409,600 equivalents for video.......

Sony's New A7s is a 4K-Capable Mirrorless Full-Frame with Insane ISO Sensitivity | PetaPixel | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

The presentation is over — although you can still watch the replay for yourself here — and as rumored, Sony has added one more full-frame mirrorless camera to its Alpha 7 arsenal: The A7s. We asked you when rumors first broke a couple of days ago what you thought the S stood for, and after a cursory look it doesn’t seem anybody got it right. According to Sony, S stands for Sensitivity, as in ISO Sensitivity. And it’s that, along with the camera’s ability to shoot 4K (sort of, more on that in a sec), that Sony is focusing on with the A7s. First, the video stuff — after all, the camera was announced at NAB. The A7s can shoot 4K video, yes… but there is a big “but” attached to the end of that statement. The camera can’t shoot 4K internally. It can record 4K only when you have an external recorder plugged in via HDMI.......

Sony’s α7S Full-Frame Camera Realizes a New World of Imaging Expression   |  Sony | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

SAN DIEGO, April 6, 2014 – Joining the acclaimed α7 and α7R family of the world’s smallest full-frame interchangeable lens cameras1, Sony’s new α7S model puts extraordinary sensitivity, low noise and spectacular 4K video quality into the hands of professional photographers and videographers. The innovative α7S camera features a newly developed, 12.2 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor, allowing it to shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 50 – 4096002 with unprecedented dynamic range and low noise. The new model is also the world’s first camera to utilize the entire width of a full-frame image sensor in 4K video acquisition, and does this without cropping or line skipping as it can read and process data from every one of the sensor’s pixels.  This allows 4K video shooters to utilize all of the artistic and creative benefits provided by the unique sensor.

“The α7S gives Sony the most complete, versatile lineup of full-frame cameras in market today,” said Neal Manowitz, director of the interchangeable lens camera business at Sony Electronics.  “Between the α99, VG900, RX1, α7, α7R and now α7S models, we have completely revolutionized what it means to be a ‘full-frame’ camera, bringing a new level of quality and portability to enthusiast photographers and videographers........

Some people are of the opinion that the Sony A7R is the best small camera for landscape photographers. The question is, is it really? Here is a hands-on location review by David Hay and Tony Gardner. As the quality of digital sensors has improved in recent years, it has become possible to achieve 35mm film quality, or better, from smaller cameras with APS-C or micro 4/3 size sensors. However, the arrival of the Sony A7 and A7R means that you can now have a much smaller, lighter camera, but with the benefits of a full-frame sensor. These are the first cameras on the market to offer this unique combination. Sony is a very innovative company. It has tried to compete with Canon and Nikon in the DSLR market but found that most professional photographers have invested heavily in their lens ranges and are reluctant to….....

Street Photography with the Leica M9 Through the Eyes of William Palank | Fstoppers | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

Perfect travel or street photography is a delicate concoction of the right place and the right time mixed with a superb eye for the extraordinary. William J Palank is one of those individuals who managed to brew that concoction with a supernatural elegance. While traversing the globe, his weapon of choice these days is the Leica M9, a digital rangefinder that produces an uncannily beautiful image. To help us celebrate Mirrorless Month, Palank describes what about the Lecia M9 allows him to shoot at his best. Why the M9? Let’s go back in time for a moment. Palank first started out with the Epson RD-1, the first Digital Rangefinder. Along the way he collected a few Leica M-Mount lenses, so as time went by it was a natural progression to get a Leica M8 when it became available, thereby upgrading from a 6 megapixel (remember when that was huge?) to a 10.3 megapixel camera, which was great even with inherent problems such as having to use IR cut filters......

All I can tell you for now is that the camera name is “A7s“. It’s not a Silver A7 as some suggested.  And it will not replace the A7 or A7r. It’s a brand new Full Frame Emount camera. Only few know about it and that’s why it is hard to get specs.

Fujifilm and Full Frame | Fuji vs. Fuji

Fujifilm and Full Frame | Fuji vs. Fuji | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

Now, this is all just speculation. I am in no way suggesting that it’s something Fujifilm has to do or that we need a full frame camera in order to produce images that compete with the DSLRs, but if Fujifilm have their eye on cornering the mirrorless market, having a complete system in both APS-C and full frame formats does make some sense. Canon and Nikon have been operating in a similar fashion for quite some time now with their DSLRs. There will always be folks who balk at the notion of using a smartphone as their primary cameras (I do), but the reality is “Consumer” cameras are dying fast. The high end is where the money will continue to be for some time yet, and if that high end can be served by Fujifilm, I won’t complain. Fujifilm could simply continue to iterate on the system they’ve got, but recent history has shown that outside of Japan, mirrorless cameras aren’t gaining ground like anyone would expect. The addition of “full frame” with the other marketing bullet points will draw more eyeballs towards Fujifilm and the mirrorless market in general. If you’re happy with APS-C, you’re already in really good shape for lens selection. There’s a lot to choose from, and there’s no chance Fujifilm will abandon the format anytime soon. If you’re waiting for a a complete, compact, full frame system, it’s possible you’ll have it in a little over years after the X-Pro2 is released, provided it is in fact full frame. Fujifilm have already shown they can do it....

An unusable combination - Sony A7 and Voigtlander Ultron 28mm f1.9 Aspherical | Kuujinbo | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

Had the camera for a little less than two months and haven’t shot that much with it yet, but have been thoroughly amused to see the number of owners and non-owners make unqualified claims that most if not all Leica M mount and M39 mount wide angle lenses are unusable on the Sony A7[R] (Google search). First, a non-technical explanation of what unusable means:


  1. Corner smearing: one or more corners of the photo looks like someone took a finger and smudged all the colors together.
  2. Corner color shift: one or more corners of the photo has noticeable cyan colors or a pinkish tone made up of a mixture of green and blue light. If interested, here’s a technical explanation – see the first section titled “Colour Shifts“.
  3. Excessive vignetting.
  4. Mostly confined to wide angle (35mm and wider) lenses, although some claim some 50mm lenses are also unusable.

Problem #1 is uncorrectable. Problems #2 & #3 can be corrected to varying degrees with software like CornerFix. Since I’m not disputing these facts, why did I insist on making the incredibly foolish decision to pick up this lens two weeks ago?!?!.......

Fuji Rumored to Scrap X-PRO1s Development in Favor of X-PRO 2 | SLRLounge | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

Fuji has been rumored to be working on an update to their X-PRO1, which they were aptly calling the X-PRO1s. Now those plans seem to have changed, and Fuji is now rumored to have scrapped the whole X-PRO1s concept in favor of a brand new X-PRO2. What exactly this means is up for interpretation, but if you ask me, Fuji likely looked at the X-PRO1 and decided that it would be better to make more wholesale improvements rather than small updates as an “s” model would likely be. Other theories are that the company wants to let the X-T1 ride a little longer at the top of the Fuji food chain until the release of the new X-PRO2.......

Wandering with the M240 and Summicron 28mm F2 ASPH | Simon Goldsworthy

Wandering with the M240 and Summicron 28mm F2 ASPH | Simon Goldsworthy | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

When you see secondhand Leica lenses in the 28-50mm range that are some of the renowned ones, like the Summilux 50mm F1.4 ASPH, the Summilux 35mm F1.4 ASPH FLE etc you really should just pounce if the price is right. That’s exactly what I did with respect to a mint Summicron 28mm F2 ASPH I found on ebay. There’s always the concern the “mint” lens will turn up scratched to hell and back, but actually eBay is pretty great at addressing most of those situations for buyers. It’s actually somewhat weighted against sellers these days! Anyway, thanks to “vintcams” for an honest description and a good lens. In any event, the Summicron turned up, and aside from the moment of comedy when I looked at the included hood and wondered exactly why Leica want you to put a rowing boat, I mean hood, on the front of a small camera lens, I was pleased with it and I’ve been giving it some love this week. I confess I never, never liked the 28mm focal length until it was rehabilitated for me by the Nikon 28mm F1.8G, which has become one of my all time favourite lenses. The problem is that all too often you think you’ll be better off with a 35 or 50 so as to stand off your subject a bit more.

Sony a7 EFCS: how much difference does it make? | The Last Word

Sony a7 EFCS: how much difference does it make?  | The Last Word | Full Frame Mirrorless | Scoop.it

When I presented this post to show how much the a7 suffers from shutter shock with and without the electronic first curtain shutter using the Zony 55, I wondered aloud why the a7’s mechanical first curtain shutter seemed to affect the sharpness less than the a7R’s mechanical FCS. In order to explore that issue in more detail, I used a Nikon AF Nikkor 180mm f2.8 ED instead of the Zony 55. With both the a7 and the a7R, I mounted the lens to a Novaflex adapter, attached the Novoflex QR foot to the adapter in landscape orientation, added the camera, and attached the whole thing to an Arca Swiss C1 head which was attached to a set of RRS TVC-44 legs. Before you castigate me for using the a7R with an adapter collar, something that I and others have demonstrated is a bad idea, consider my motivations in this test. I’m not trying to find out the best way to mount the a7R when used with a smallish 180mm lens, I’m trying to find out if there’s something inherently different between the vibration of the a7 and a7R FCS, and this is a handy way to construct a fairly sensitive test setup.  An adapter collar foot, while not a good way to mount a camera/lens assembly to the tripod with the a7R, works very well with the a7, as long as you use EFCS.......

For the past three weeks, I've been testing the Sony a7 camera. It's not a camera I bought, nor one provided by Sony--BorrowLenses was kind enough to give me a free rental to test both their service and the camera. And during testing, I've been carrying it around in my camera bag along with the Canon 6D. They're both full-frame cameras, but they couldn't be more different. While the 6D is a traditional DSLR, Sony's a7 is a mirrorless camera. It's more akin to Sony's Alpha NEX lineup of compacts--cameras that are physically the size of a large point-and-shoot (at least one from around 10 years ago), but have the large image sensors of DSLRs. And in using the Sony a7, I've been brought back to the fun of shooting with my old NEX-C3.....
