Fantastic Camera for video. The best in low light.
Pros: Light weight. Great low light capture

I don't know that a more capable videography/photography device exists in this size. The a7S is back with everything the first generation was missing (I had one). This is the ultimate low-light shooter for video and photography. The addition of LOG3 and a compatible REC709 internal LUT make shooting video absolutely outstanding. The resulting 4K and cropped 1080P are absolutely stunning even when recorded compressed to an internal memory card. Just drop-dead gorgeous video. 1080p120? 720p240? Yes, please! 12MP is not a lot for photography by today's standards, but they are 12 million of the biggest and most capable pixels you will find. They give Nikon's 16MP sensor (my other camera) a run for its money, especially as the lights go down. 12MP is a perfect size for full view on a 4K display. Most people don't even view photos on these types of screens yet and the human eye is becoming a limiting factor. This may not be the perfect camera for large-form art installations, but let's be real. The only downside of the 12MP is it doesn't offer much space to work in when post processing. Doing fine-detail work is a little harder because you cannot magnify as much to get in and manipulate with masking and other tools. It won't fit everyone's needs in this respect, but its very good. In short, if you want a lot of pixels, look elsewhere, if you want pretty pixels, get the a7S. The attached youtube video is the first thing I shot with the a7SII + Loxia 35
Pros: Now with Internal 4K, LUTs and IBIS! Low light monster Gorgeous video and photo Small and light package Adapt lenses from almost any system ever
Cons: Internal recording codec could be better Menus still mostly suck Limited system lenses 12MP limits post-processing options
