Sony A7S for Unit Stills Photography?
I know this is a forum for video, but I'm a videographer/photographer that's looking to upgrade from my 7D. I am looking into becoming a unit stills photographer and don't want to fork out extra money for a sound blimp. I understand the A7S has silent shoot mode which would be an asset and it's obvious strength in low light situations would be beneficial. Also being able to use it for personal video projects will be a big plus. A lot of people have been writing this off as a poor stills camera for anything but low light situations, but how bad is it really? Surely it can't be that bad? Obviously there are better stills cameras out there but will it still do a good job? The reality is I can't afford multiple bodies for specific purposes and I'm doing my best to find a jack of all trades, at least until I can afford to splash out on situation specific gear.
