35mm sensor w/ large pixels for high-ISO & Dynamic Range

The innovative a7S camera features a 12.2 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor, allowing it to shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 50 ? 4096004 with unprecedented dynamic range and low noise. The a7S camera to collect dramatically more light than traditional cameras and to produce beautifully detailed, low-noise images in even the darkest environments.

12.2MP sensor optimized for 4k and low light video

The a7S is the world?s first camera to utilize the entire width of a full-frame image sensor in 4K video acquisition. It does this without cropping or line skipping as it can read and process data from every one of the sensor?s pixels. This allows 4K video shooters to utilize all of the artistic and creative benefits provided by the unique sensor.

Fast Intelligent AF in light as low as EV -4

Equipped with the same high-precision Fast Intelligent AF system as the a7R camera, the a7S drastically improve AF sensitivity in low-light that can go as low as -4EV.

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. By applying an AR coating on the surface of the seal glass over the image sensor, ghosting and flare have been minimized, further contributing to the a7S?s high image quality.

Uncompressed 4:2:2 Full HD and 4K QFHD output via HDMI

In video mode, the a7S can output 4K video at QFHD (3840x2160) in 4:2:2 to an optional external 3rd party 4K recorder via the HDMI1

50Mbps XAVC S 1920x1080 at 60P, 1280x720 at 120P

For the first time ever in a Sony a camera, the a7S adopts the workflow-friendly XAVC S recording format in addition to AVCHD and MP4 codecs. XAVC S format allows for full HD recording at a data rate of 50 mbps with lower compression for improved video quality. The a7S can record full HD (1920x1080) at frame rates of 60p, 60i, 30p and 24p directly to a compatible memory card. Video modes can be changed from full-frame to APS-C (super 35mm equivalent) if desired, and in this crop mode, the camera can support high frame rate 120fps shooting at standard HD resolution (1280 x 720p), creating a 5x slow-motion effect.

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.

High contrast 2.4-million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF

View every scene in rich detail with the XGA OLED Tru-Finder, which features OLED improvements and the same 3-lens optical system used in the flagship a99. The viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately monitor the results. You?ll enjoy rich tonal gradations and 3 times the contrast of the a99. High-end features like 100% frame coverage and a wide viewing angle are also provided.

3.0" 1.23M dot LCD tilts for high and low angle framing

The tiltable 3.0? (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine LCD Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up approx. 84? and down approx. 45?. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.

Audio level controls, AAC/Linear PCM2, optional XLR kit

Simple connectivity to smartphones via Wi-Fi or NFC

Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi/NFC control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, a7S also supports NFC (near field communication) providing ?one touch connection? convenience when transferring images to Android smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required.
