Sensitivity mastered

Awe-inspiring sensitivity realizes a whole new world ofimaging expression! The newly developed 35mm full-frame Exmor™ CMOS sensor brings ultra wide dynamic range and high movie quality. It combines phenomenal sensitivity up to ISO 409600* with supremely low noise, courtesy of Sony's new 12.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame Exmor CMOS image sensor and optimized high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine. Professional movie functions satisfy the highest demands of serious photographers and videographers, plus everything is precision-packed in the world's smallest 35mm full-frame interchangeable-lens digital camera body** for unparalleled mobility. Imagine the possibilities.

*Standard ISO range: Still 100 - 102400, Movie 200-102400; Expandable ISO range: Still 50-409600, Movie 200-409600

*Among interchangeable-lens digital cameras equipped with a 35mm full-frame image sensor (as of April 6, 2014) according to Sony research.

Ultra-high sensitivity 35mm full-frame sensor - Up to ISO 409600*

Ultra-high sensitivity 35mm full-frame sensor

Sony's new remarkably sensitive 12.2-megapixel 35mm full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor delivers a wide sensitivity range from ISO 50 to 409600*, as well as extremely low noise. The newly developed image sensor provides photographers/videographers with high dynamic range in every light condition from severe low light to bright sunlight.

* Standard ISO range: Still 100 – 102400, Movie 200-102400; Expandable ISO range: Still 50-409600, Movie 200-409600

BIONZ X image processing engine

Sony proudly introduces the BIONZ X image processing engine, which faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing capabilities. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration) that accelerates processing in the earliest stages, it enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise whether you shoot still images or movies.

Advanced movie functions support a professional workflow


Picture Profile

Picture Profile

You can fine-tune the look of movies before shooting by adjusting gradation (Black Level, Gamma, Black Gamma, Knee), color adjustment (Color Mode, Color Level, Color Phase, Color Depth) and Detail. Adjusted parameters can be saved along with other settings as a profile, and up to seven profiles can be stored for later recall.

S-Log2 gamma setting

S-Log2 gamma setting

This proprietary Sony gamma setting, featured in professional camcorders, creates a 1,300% wider dynamic range for smooth expression of gradation with reduced whiteout and blackout. Through color grading in post production, you can make the most of the low-noise image and super-rich detail to achieve various types of image expression.

Time code / User bit

Time code / User bit

As with commercial video equipment, this function provides a "Record Run" setting that only advances the time code while recording, a "Free Run" setting that advances the time code whether recording or not, a drop frame method and a non-drop frame method. The α7S can also output a embedded time code when the clean HDMI output setting is in use.

Available with AVCHD and XAVC S formats only.

120fps (100fps) shooting at HD resolution

120fps (100fps) shooting at HD resolution

120fps (100fps) recording broadens image expression options since a movie shot at this frame rate can be played back at 24p to create stunning 5x slow-motion effects. When 120fps (100fps) recording is selected, movies are automatically recorded at HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) in the APS-C (Super 35mm equivalent) crop size.

Sony α mount system

Sony α mount system

Wide-ranging compatible E-mount lenses let you take full advantage of sophisticated features while comfortably shooting movies. For example, specially equipped lenses let you enjoy Optical SteadyShot image stabilization or smooth, steady power zooming throughout the entire zoom range, and all E-mount lenses let you enjoy smooth autofocusing and auto exposure. The camera's short flange back expands lens options, via mount adaptors, so you can make the most of your current lens collection. The LA-EA4 adaptor, for example, lets you mount professional A-mount lenses and enjoy continuous phase-detection AF.

Clean HDMI output for 4K movies

Non-compressed image output is now possible at 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution with selectable 30p (25p) and 24p frame rates. You can choose 4K or Full HD output from a menu. The 4K output capability allows recording of high-quality 4K images by a 4K-compatible recorder, as well as 4K output directly to a compatible monitor or TV.

Cutting-edge features in the world's smallest body*

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a digital/video camera for action The overall picture quality is wonderful. Of course this camera beats all other cameras in the market with its sensitivity. The dynamic range is amazing. The only big issue with me is that I am heavily involved with action sports videography. People and things fly across my screen very quickly so rolling shutter means a lot. THIS IS NOT THE CAMERA FOR YOU IF YOU HEAVILY VALUE ROLLING SHUTTER. If rolling shutter is not that big of a problem, the events or occasions you take video of are dark, you enjoy having a large sensor, you value having mobility, and you like having a wide lens selection, this camera is the one for you HANDS DOWN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low light, wonderful when well lit All the complaints about no 4k is crazy. Seriously, for those complaining about no 4k, go buy a different camera, like the GH4. Of course if you do, then you'll be complaining about the lack of low light abilities.... crazy.... I bought TWO a7s bodies strictly for the low light. Period. Done. There is NO match to the a7s. My commercial work for clients is 95% very low light, and very dusty conditions. The a7s is good. Crazy good! And not just for video, either. I shoot stills (landscape) and print them 60" wide on canvas, and they look very good.... If you want great dynamic range, and wonderful low light video, then buy this. If you want 4k on the cheap, go somewhere else, but you;ll be back to buy this eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera I had NEX-5N before. I wanted to have something better in terms of video capabilities this time. Through out many reviews I decided to get a7S. Very very light, mobile. Extremely good for low light, never seen something like this before. For certain people, 12MP for still photography is a downside, but it works perfectly for me. If you have good full frame lens, it will be super sharp and high quality. Focus Peaking is a great feature for manual focus. XAVC-S is a wonderful codec for Color Grading. Battery goes fast but you get 2 batteries so that's pretty good. There is only one thing bothers me; not enough native lenses. Sony should act very aggresive about releasing more Full Frame lenses for a7 series. I was looking for 35mm f1/4 but ended up getting Zeiss 55mm instead because they don't have option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jack of all trades? No. Master of some? Yes. Get a tripod go outside at night and watch this camera overexpose the milky way. That's how sensitive it is. Sounds like a one trick pony, but think of all the things only you can do by having just that. Owned and used this camera for a while now. I use Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA Full-frame E-mount Prime Lens and Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS Full-frame E-mount Zoom Lens. Rolling shudder Yes No question. Compared to other cameras it is worse than some but not all. I would not call it end of the world but you will need to keep this in mind in some situations. Low Light - Amazing, nothing comes close. Untrained eye wont see much compared against the next best low light camera but with a little looking becomes obvious in most situations. Faults - Video Record button. Whoever decided that was a good place to place it should explain themselves. All in all. This Camera is impressive. The menu is complicated to people who don't use the camera for longer than a day. A quick menu is also available for frequented settings. (Make your own menu basically under a hotkey) After a day of playing with the menu it really isn't that complicated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Banding Problems A great camera for videos. Amazing ISO threshold... can literally shoot in the dark. The silent shutter is a wonderful feature. The problem is, when you shoot in low light situations, there's a banding (stripes) issue, that can ruin your photos. My friend bought the same camera and is having the same issue with the banding. We were told by technical support that it's because of the silent shutter. We turned that feature off and still saw the banding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant camera but who designed the grip?!! I am professional photographer. I bought the Sony A7S to try it. Surely it is an amazing camera, but I am going to sell it for the following reasons: I can't stand how uncomfortable is the grip with the shutter button put straight up in vertical... very anti-ergonomic position and wouldn't be able to use it on a full day at weddings. The lack of a double card slot (very useful in other cameras to provide backup while shooting). Low megapixel count (I understand the high ISO is thank to the low megapixel, but are we sure we can't get anymore retaining same low light performance?) I sell this one now and really, really hope that very soon a Sony A7S MKII will come out on the market with better grip, better shutter position, (as you made with sony a7 MKII), dual card slot, more megapixel (maintaining same or better low light). If you accomplish this, I am willing to sell all my canon gear and switch 100% to Sony for all my pro gear. I would buy 2 cameras and all the lenses I need! Also please keep working on providing faster lenses native for A7S, 24-70 f/4 is not enough, give us 2.8, 70-200 2.8 etc! I think many other pro photographers are just waiting for more lenses to then do the switch to Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best video camera I've ever encountered The full frame sensor, the widely ranging ISO, and codec, and the adaptability of the camera to take almost any lens makes it a brilliant choice. I have outfitted mine with an adaptor to allow me to use a collection of Leica lenses. Yes, I would like a zoom, but these primes are beautiful in combination. My only dissatisfaction is the 29 minute recording time. I work around it, but for long records it's a bit of a pain. Yes, I know I can get an outboard recorder, like a Shogun, but I prefer a smaller setup, and 1080p with the 50 mbs codec results in just stunning video. I am very grateful to have this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera for Video I've been using this camera for about 8 months. I mainly use it for video production, but it's a great stills camera as well. I actually plan on picking up a second body for back up in the field.
