We rent the Sony A7s.
The Sony Alpha a7S has a full-frame 12.2 MP CMOS sensor. The exciting part about the camera for filmmakers, however, is the ability to shoot 4K video. The a7S is able to output uncompressed 4:2:2 UHD 4K video to an external recorder or record full 1080p HD video in XAVC S format at 50 Mbps. The camera also allows you to shoot in S-Log2 gamma which helps expand the effective dynamic range.
The a7S mirrorless camera also features a continuous shooting rate of 5 fps, a fast 25-point contrast-detection AF system with sensitivity to -4 EV, 3.0” 921.6k-dot tilting LCD monitor and a 2.36 million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder.
Filmmakers will also be happy about the a7S’ multiple timecode recording options. It has the standard ‘Record Run” mode that only advances the timecode when recording, as well as “Free Run” timecode that advances the timecode even when not recording, which can be great for syncing multiple cameras at live events. It can also record timecode in both drop frame and non-drop frame modes. When recording internally the a7S is also able to output timecode via HDMI. Timecode output is not supported when outputting 4K over HDMI.
