Professional grade video features
In this powerful short by Den Lennie, the Alpha 7S III showcases its supreme abilities by capturing a passionate surfer dedicated to his craft, set in Australia’s gorgeous Sunshine Coast.
With the ability to shoot in 4K at 120p and with a wide dynamic of more than 15 stops, the Alpha 7S III is able to capture the smallest detail whether you are shooting in natural light, artificial light or both as highlighted in the opening sunrise shot and of the surfer walking across the creek.
The camera is also able to shoot in full HD up to 240p so you can create dramatic slow-mo to highlight the beauty of the moment the way Den did with the surfboard was being sanded down. Plus, the camera’s 12.1MP sensor provides large pixels that ensure every shot is crisp and free of pixelation so every scene is crystal clear even in low-light situations.
The Alpha 7S III records up to 10 bit 4:2:2 colour sampling and a maximum of 600 Mbps with all intra-recording. This means you can get much cleaner footage as the colour around edges are more defined so you can shoot across a wide variety of scenes with different lighting worry-free. It also produces extremely high-quality footage, making it perfect for green screening.
