Video review of the Sony A7S by Philip Bloom

Vimeo Info:

New version with new post credits ending!
There is a very small amount of flesh on display here, not mine. Just a bit of painted topless ladies who pose for photos in New York. Might be not safe for work…captured as part of the street filming scenes.

Any use of the Vimeo tip jar is greatly appreciated as it helps go towards subsidising and future reviews. Without which they would be financially unworkable. Huge thanks to anyone who does donate and to CVP who partly subsidised this one to get it going! Added up to around a month of work that was put into this review, which is hard to do when I need to earn money doing my proper paid filming! These are done for the filmmaking community.

As always with my reviews I take my time to create the content which in turn helps me form my opinion rather than just shoot some footage then put a review out based upon a snap judgment. Pointless. You need time with a camera and time to truly form an opinion worth sharing. Whether you should listen to this opinion? Sure! Why not? Just don’t buy anything based on it, not on any one opinion… especially mine! Check out other reviews and try before you by if you can!

This review is for the world camera, which is basically most of them. The US one does not appear to be PAL/ NTSC switchable which is a bit rubbish!!! When buying the camera please make sure you check!!

Mostly shot on the A7s apart from a few BTS shots in Central Park, New York and a a few GH4 BTS and Gopro shots during the 4K testing.

Filmed in Brighton, RIchmond, Maidstone, New York, Detroit

Main on camera section lit with an Area 48 LED Soft with interchangeable phosphor panels. A truly beautiful light!bbslighting.com/products/area-48-soft-remote-phosphor.

Lens used on this section was a Sigma 50mm F1.4. All shot HD yet was able to punch in to about 130% for frame changes. The image is that detailed you can get away with it.
