Sony A7Sii Issues! Don't Buy Yet! BUGS!!!
We've owned a Sony A7Rii since it's release and have been pretty happy with the camera.
It was a no brainer (we thought) and got the A7sii as well on preorder.
I mean everything looked better on paper.
We did a commercial spec shoot (thank god it was a spec) using both Cameras and boy we're lucky we used both cameras.
I've shot on a F55 before and learned about the exposures on SLog3 vs SLog2 and we shot with a DSC One Shot as well so according to spec we had good and legal exposure.
We monitored both cameras on a DP7 OLED with REC709 de-log Lut's and looked fine on a 7" screen
Once we loaded the footage into Premiere, oh boy..... terrible banding in whites (not even highlights and under 60IRE) and weird green tinting in the shadows even when the whites were balanced.
Did browsing and found quite a few people with the same issues.
But the most informative one and exact same problem was recorded on this post.
It's pretty bad!
It's pretty much UNUSABLE!
if you need to shoot immediately you should rent a a7rii.
a7sii once sony fixes the firmware, it should be ok.
Has anybody else own and experienced these issues?
