A7s - Low Light possibilities.
We recently went out to Kananaskis Country, here in Alberta, Canada, with 4 A7s set ups, 2000 glow sticks and 4 professional mountain bikers. We just wanted to experiment with the setups, to see just how far we could push their low-light capabilities.
The video can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/107654361
After shooting that night, and seeing the possibilities, I think this sensor is going to give filmers the chance to really push the lighting in a scene, or even how much lighting is needed.
I'm just looking for other creative excuses now to see how far we can push the camera, and still get useable clips from the XAVC-s in SLog2.
What used to take 10-20,000w of lighting, can now be done with 2-4000w. It's a pretty awesome step forward for an easy travel small sized kit.
Do you think this camera is going to allow people to get more creative with lighting? or will they just get lazier, and try to get away with more "naturally lit" scenes?
