Our hire Sony A7SII Full-Frame Camera Bodies are serious image capturing devices that priorities image quality in both photo and video and took the market by storm due to it’s unrivalled low-light functionality. Although the A7S is generally in the hands of our video pals we think it’s one of the best options for travel and hiking as it’s incredibly small and lightweight. The miniature nature of the camera is resultant of the mirrorless design which removes the need for a shutter/mirror mechanisms and pentaprism.
In today’s photographic age, where most information is a function of CFA Interpolation, having huge MP numbers doesn’t necessarily mean better images and in some cases, especially with smaller sensors, higher pixel counts result in noisier images. Having 12.2mp on a full-frame sensor results in large pixels and this means cleaner images!
Sony have ticked most of the major video camera boxes too, offering S-Log3 Gamma Curve that is a raw-esque format that prioritises median exposure and colour rendering without producing non-compressed files. Furthermore, the inbuilt 5-Axis stabilising (SteadyShot) ensures even cleaner movements and hand-held operation.
The Sony A7S2 shines so bright because of it’s insane internal processing which has resulted from Sony’s immense R&D, and that they make most camera companies sensors, so they know a thing or twelve. They’ve dubbed this the BIONZ X Image processor and they’ve done so to focus on the fact that actual image reproduction qualities come from the image processor, not the sensor, at the end of the day most sensors are the same. One could say the same Variety comes from the processor.
