Fabien Pisano, Sales Manager for Sony Europe was recently interviewed by Emmanuel Pampuri. In this interview, Pisano revealed some details about the Sony A7s III, as well as the FS series.

The interview is in French, but we’ve picked up some details the guys at Sony Alpha Rumors translated. Sadly, I don’t speak French so I can’t translate more. But you can turn on the automatic translation on YouTube: it’s not stellar, but you might pick something up. Here are some highlights about the upcoming Sony A7sIII and the FS series:

FS series “suffers from the success of A7 series (30% of the pro market)”

Sony “can’t implement 10bits 4K in FS5II because this needs too much power consumption, it is not a marketing choice.” But, as Sony Alpha Rumors reports, 10 bits 4K will be there for the next FS generation.

Reportedly, the A7sIII is “coming soon,” but even in the Sony team it’s “the most hidden secret.” However, what has been revealed is that the A7sIII will keep the same “identity” as its predecessor: It will have a low-resolution sensor and extreme low light capabilities. Considering how well the A7sII performs in low light, we can probably expect that the A7sIII won’t disappoint when it comes to low-light capabilities.

It will also be interesting to see how the A7sIII will stack up against the A7III when it comes to video, given how well the A7III goes toe-to-toe with the A7sII on that aspect already.

One of the biggest complaints about most of the older Sony mirrorless cameras is battery life. In the A7III, we’ve seen a significant improvement over the older models, and it’s utilizing the same battery as the A9. If the A7sIII carries the A9 style design as the A7III and A7RIII, it may also be a pleasant surprise when it comes to battery life performance.

    It will have to bring some serious game to compete with the A7III besides low light shooting. The A7III shoots respectable in low light and can take fantastic stills for a great price. What will Sony add to the A7SIII to justify the price?

      4k 60 and probably 1080 240 or something like that. With an improved sensor, flip lcd, and better color science. I don’t know what else other then that
