The folks of TheVideoMode.com have had some time with the new Leica SL Typ 601 and the Sony A7s Mark II. Some videos showing the interface for accessing the slow motion interface have been posted on their site. There is also a slow motion low light sample of the A7s Mark II at 120fps for you to watch.
Sony today has announced a pretty important pair of products the Sony A7s II and the Sony FS5 Pro Model. On the one hand video producers that adopted the Sony A7s last year due to it’s impressive dynamic range and extreme low light ability at up to ISO 409,600; were in a bind as recording 4k with the camera needed an external recorder in order to do it. It also had no sensor image stabilization which is a very useful feature. Not anymore the newly announced Sony A7s II has internal 4k with S-Log 3 flat profile mode and it also boosts last years 120fps at 720p to Full HD and full sensor readout 1080p at 120fps. From the samples the quality seems impressive and artifact free, it will be a matter of looking at non Sony samples to see if the quality is that good in the 120fps FHD mode.
A7s II Main Features:
The open source camera AXIOM by apertus promises to be the first real solution with open source code to fully control and push the limits of a professional camera for a low price.
The latest specs hint at a possible 300fps at full 4k resolution for their 2015 AXIOM Gamma release which will be in the realm of fantasy for the majority of people without a Bentley or Veyron parked outside your front door.
