Award-winning filmmaker Philip Bloom recently got his hands on the new A7s, and as part of his ongoing review of the newest mirrorless full-frame offering from Sony, he put it to the test in low-light to see how it compared to approximately 520 million years of eyeball evolution.
Being as the video is produced by a filmmaker of Bloom’s skill and reputation, you know it’s going to be well shot. Mostly an artistic piece that snaps between what Bloom was seeing and what the camera could see, it was captured on Brighton Beach using a Canon 24-70 f/2.8II, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II, Sigma 35mm ART f/1.4 and Sigma 50mm ART f/1.4.
Bloom explains what you’re looking at in the video’s description:
With the shots where in goes from dark to light and vice versa, these dark parts are what I could see with my eyes. They were all shot with high ISOs and graded down to show you what I could see and what the camera could see if it was set to around 800-1600iso as opposed to what I actually was shooting at. At night between 6,400-80,000!
Check out the video for yourself to see the dramatic difference — be sure to stick around for the end where he cranks up the ISO gradually as you watch — and then be sure to head over to Bloom’s “evolving review of the Sony A7s” to find out more about this exciting new camera.
