That's very true and I wouldn't buy it too. I want do buy a new camera and be between the a7s II and the a7s. I just want to know if there is that big difference with the 5-axis system and xavcs vs prores. I really need 4K and this low light capability. If you were me, what would you do?
Thank you very much for this answer. Well for me it is all about 4K and so I don't know which one to get. There are 2 possibilities for me, a7S II or a7 + an external recorder. This would be a lot bigger and I don't know if there is any difference in Video between prores and xavcs.
I don't think the a7s II will overheat too, because it's the filmcamera from sony. But I really don't know what to do. What would you do if you have to buy a new camera and need 4K? Is the 5-axis stabi really worth the extra money?
Do you have a a7s? Are you satisfied with it? Are 12 MP enough for pictures? Or would it be better to go with the a7R II? :)
Maybe a7s with an external Recorder would be the better and cheaper option for me? Do you think it would be better? a7s II has the same sensor so there should be no difference in the picture...
Have you bought a gimbal yet?
What would you choose? SmallHD or Blackmagic? :)
