The Sony A7s is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with a 12MP full-frame sensor. It is classified as a “high sensitivity” model thanks to its native ISO range of 100 to 102400 (expandable to 50 and 409600). It records internally in 1080p up to 60fps and up to 120fps in 720p and APS-C mode. 4K is only available via the HDMI output. Other features include a 25 point contrast detection AF system, silent shutter, 5fps continuous shooting, and a built-in EVF and tilting LCD screen. It was succeeded by the A7s II in 2015 and a third-generation model is expected sometime in 2018.

Sony A7s Sample Images
The following gallery features a series of twenty Sony A7S sample RAW images, all of which were edited in Lightroom and exported as JPGs. We’ve made a point to include a number of low light samples at high ISOs, as this is the primary forte of the camera. Each image is accompanied by information about the shutter speed, aperture, ISO value, and lens used.
