4k video on a full frame, mirrorless camera with 4:2:2 uncompressed video output.
35mm large pixel sensor w/ 15.3-stops dynamic range:
The innovative a7S features a 12.2 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor. The a7S can shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 100-409600 with low noise and unprecedented 15.3 stops of dynamic range. The extra-large pixels on the a7S collects dramatically more light than traditional cameras to produce beautifully detailed, low-noise images in even the most challenging lighting environments.
12.2MP sensor optimized for 4k and low light video:
The a7S is the world?s first 35mm camera to incorporate direct pixel readout utilizing the entire width of the full-frame image sensor without line skipping or pixel binning. Therefore in both HD and 4K video acquisition it can read and process data from every one of the sensor's pixels. This allows video shooters to utilize all of the artistic and creative benefits provided by the unique sensor.
New-generation RGB filter with gapless on-chip lens design:
The larger than normal pixel size on the 35mm full-frame image sensor with effective 12.2MP, employs Sony's latest image sensor technologies on the a7S. To boost the image sensor's light collection efficiency, a new-generation RGB color filter has been adopted, in addition to the gapless on-chip lens design, light concentration technology and photodiode expansion technology delivers unprecedented high sensitivity and low-noise levels with high dynamic range in every light condition from severe low light to bright sunlight. Ghosting and flare have been minimized by applying an AR coating on the surface of the glass seal over the image sensor, further contributing to the high image quality on the a7S.
Uncompressed 4:2:2 Full HD and 4K QFHD output via HDMI*:
In XAVC S video mode, the a7S can output uncompressed QFHD 4K video (3840 x 2160) in 8-bit 4:2:2 to an optional external 3rd party 4k recorder via HDMI.1
Pro-workflow w/ Picture Profile, S-Log2 and time code:
The a7S is equipped with S-Log2 gamma. Common to Sony's range of professional video cameras, S-Log2 expands the dynamic range by up to 1300% to minimize clipped highlights and loss of detail in shadows. The a7S include a picture profile that can adjust settings like gamma, black, level and color adjustment, and can be saved for use in a multi-camera shoot. It also has Full HD and 4K base band HDMI® output, time code/user bit for easier editing, synchronous recording feature with compatible devices, various marker and zebra displays on both the LCD screen and viewfinder.
