Sony just announced the Sony A7s II full frame mirrorless E-mount digital camera. The best low light camera option just got even better! I’m a little surprised by this considering the specs, but an updated body is really a great thing and brings the low light shooting to an even higher level! According to BHPhoto (Click Here), the new Sony A7s II will be available and shipping out on September 17th @ 12am.
I only went over things quickly this morning so far, but the camera clearly has some new goods worth checking out, such as internal UHD 4k, the killer S-log3 gamma, fast intelligent AF down to -4EV, and a much better camera body with the 5-axis steadyShot technology inside.
This camera is the best photojournalists option to date by far in my opinion! I’m talking about in the field looking for a point and shoot camera that is the best possible quality in the smallest form factor possible. I know the folks from Vice News use the original A7s a lot, so this new camera will certainly be added to their gear I’m sure.
