Sony A7S II

4K Video

beautiful design, light weight

The Sony A7S was already an impressive low light camera but Sony decided to take everything to a whole new different level with the Sony A7SII, Sony has made some huge yet impressive upgrades with this new camera.

While the sensor remains unchanged Sony decided to improve the image processing engine to provide even better high ISO performance, considering how wonderful the original A7S was at high ISOs this is quite a challenge.

With improved controls and ergonomics as well as Sony’s impressive 5-axis image stabilization technology this camera actually dominated the market since the very first day it was launched. 

There are no surprises when we talk about Sony’s excellent ISO performance, and this is where A7S II truly shines. At ISO 100 there is no noise at all, even up to 3200, the noise levels remain practically low. 


  • Internal UHD 4K recording 
  • S-long 3 (in addition to s-log 2)
  • Gamma display assistant (allow you to monitor your flat s-log 2 or 3 images in a more vivid Rec 709 way)
  • Internal IBIS stabilization system (5-Axis SteadyShot)
  • The possibility to charge the camera via USB port 
  • The possibility to assign ‘’REC’’ to other buttons than the awkwardly placed rec button
  • 100fps (PAL), 120fps (NTSC) in HD quality 

Hayden actually says every time that the lenses are the most important part of photography because a lot of people just get worried about what camera they should get, thinking about buying the newest camera and forgetting about the lenses, which is a common mistake.
