The long awaited A7S III from Sony packs an array of great featues in its small form factor. It records 4K up to 120 frames per second (and up to 240fps in Full HD). Internal recording with 10-bit 4:2:2 chroma subsampling is also now possible, offering higher image quality and flexibility in post.
The A7S III has an all new sensor and the faster readout reduces the rolling shutter / jello effect that was sometimes an issue with the A7S II.
The A7S III can use the high speed CFexpress Typa A media and the camera has two media slots - allowing for simultaneous recording when you want to minimise the chance of being stung by card failure. The card slots also accept UHS-II SD cards, but not all of the features of the camera are available when using that media (our kit includes two 80GB CFexpress Type A cards).
For those interested in maximum image quality, recording a 16-bit RAW feed out of the camera is now supported.
