Sony Announces Pricing and Availability for the Low-Light Powerhouse A7s

CX78500_wVX9111_image_7-1200

We don’t typically dedicate an entire post to a pricing and availability announcement, nor do we usually talk so much about cameras that are focused in large part on video capture, but the A7s is a big fat exception to these rules.

And so, it is with great aplomb that we tell you that Sony’s A7s, which looks to be unmatched in low-light if we’re to trust the tests that have come out thus far, will cost $2,500 and begin shipping in July.

If you’d like to find out more about the camera, check out our previous coverage. And if you’re already set to pull the trigger and buy it, you can pre-order by clicking here.

Sony announced the full-frame mirrorless A7s earlier this week. And while its 4K video capability was arguably the most touted feature, we were more intrigued by the 12-megapixel sensor that tops out at a ridiculous ISO of 409,600 … almost half a million ISO … in a mirrorless camera.

So, how does footage (and therefore images) look at 409,600 on the A7s? Well, Sony commissioned Den Lennie to show it off. Read more…
