It's been 5 long years since Sony released their Sony a7S II Camera, which from how Brandon explains it, changed the industry at almost all levels. Do you think they can catch lightning in a bottle again with the a7S III?

    The base ISO is 640 in s-log3 but can be extended to ISO 100 but you loose the dynamic range that you get on the base ISO.

  • John Coogan
    John Coogan11 dager siden

    Extended ISO is a trap though. It just pushes the luminance of everything down. If you have clipped highlights at ISO 640 and then stop down to ISO 160, your clipped highlights will be darker but there will be no detail recovery.

    A camera I would beyond love, but have no possible way of justifying spending that much money on for how often I delve into my film/photography hobby. For now...

    Boy, I still remember when I got myself the alpha 100 more than a decade ago. They really seem to have built out their camera line.

  • David Griffin

    10:41 Is that right though; the bar above and below the 160 indicates you're below the sensors native ISO. On the A7III (which is the camera I own and am "used to") I believe the native ISO is 800, anything below that (which isn't possible in log, on the A7III) will have a compromised dynamic range, will it not? Therefore the 160 setting in slog 3, on the A7SIII, with those bars shown above and below the 160, suggest to me, non-native ISO.

    Sony's eye auto focus is incredible. I'm still not moving to mirrorless. What is the point if you aren't shooting video? The battery life is terribad. I can compose a shot before I even turn on my camera. This thing has an lcd and then another even smaller one that ALSO doesn't give you a real view of anything and you can't trust. I rarely even turn on my LCD. If you know what you are doing you're not chimping all day and take a few good photos. Doesn't Sony just make a badass video camera?

    @Brandon_Y_Lee I've been looking for a good camera to live stream astrophotography, do you think this camera would be viable or should I stick with purpose built cameras with chilled sensors to negate noise? It's seems quite a bit cheaper than the $50k USD scientific grade cameras I was looking at 🤣. (I can dream) And I'm trying to get away from monochrome cameras with color filters and long exposure times. SpaceX satellites are messing up my exposures alot. 😭

    They still limit bitrate based on some incorrect checks of the SD card, instead of letting us customers try and just stop recording when the buffer is full like canon? Bruh. Improved, but not perfect

    I don't like the Sony logo on the flip screen. It makes the screen actually quite a bit smaller than the GH5. The HDMI port door needs some TLC before release, it should flow in the same direction as the others. Also I would like to see Shutter Angle and anamorphic support added at some point.

    i guess if your taking video fully articulated screens are good, but I really hate them for what I do personally, they get in the way. Never owned a sony as of yet but maybe in the future for night photography.

    Personally I'm more of a fan of tilt screens instead of full articulation because when I do street photography I shoot at the hip, and if you have full articulation that makes your camera more obvious. However, if you're vlogging or something maybe full articulation would be better for you 🤷‍♀️

    Can you do either an extensive techquickie or a video on LTT in a similar style to the TV types you did about everything about cameras? It's probably the last piece of tech I have no idea about at all and it could help inspire people to get into photography considering how wide reaching the LTT channel influence has. I'm also too lazy and not motivated enough to get into cameras (by researching elsewhere) if LTT isn't particularly interested in them.
