    Like the α7S, the α7S II is designed for both stills and video shooting, with an emphasis on the latter. Read more

    I replaced my Canon 5D mkIII with the Sony A7R II. Mostly because I already had an A7SII and wanted a camera system instead of two different. My impression of the A7RII is that it is better on still images than the A7SII, with better color reproduction and faster auto focus. Read more

    Read various reviews of whining on small buttons and difficult menus, but I myself think that the menus, you learn that at any other camera at any time, and the buttons feel solid and distinct. Coming from Canon or Nikon, you learn about, nothing more to it. Read more

    Amazing camera for video! If you are looking for photography look at the A7II or the A7RII. Though this camera will still take awesome stills if you are just at a family event or for some Behind the Scenes photos. Internal 4K and Slog3 is fantastic! Read more
