Once lauded as the kings of video, Sony’s been lagging a little of late with their A7 mirrorless series. They’re still clinging onto that 8-Bit video while the rest of the world is going 10-Bit or even 12-Bit raw. But it seems that Sony might finally be going at least 10-Bit after a sensor spec, allegedly for the Sony A7S III was leaked to EOSHD.
It’s an interesting looking sensor if the leak is accurate, that actually looks specifically suited to video rather than stills. So the possible destination of an Sony A7S III makes some sense and it is definitely a full-frame sensor. It’s not super high resolution, being a 15-megapixel Quad Bayer sensor, but for 4K video, what more do you need?
