Sony A7s Low Light quality in an FS7 body
So we've seen with the A7s which was released a while back, that Sony is capable of excellent noise reduction with High ISO's, the question is - what is stopping them from putting this technology in a proper video camera with an ENG body, XLR support, and so forth such as the FS7 and FS5? It has been clear that the A7s has been a huge favorite among videographers, so would Sony not make a killing if they incorporated its noise reduction capabilities into a real video camera? Is this just another 5D Mark II type situation of coincidental excellent video in a stills camera? Or is this part of a plan which they aim to capitalize on later by putting this technology in a real video camera? I personally believe that it is the latter, keep the excellent professional video with the FS line, and keep the excellent noise reduction with the A7 line. That way you have to pick and choose, and it would also give something for Sony to improve upon and maximize profit. Please share your thoughts on this, thanks.
