Field Report: Sony a7S II S-Log2 vs S-Log3 Test

Field Report: Sony a7S II S-Log2 vs S-Log3 Test

The Sony a7SII has a couple of neat features that make it a worthy upgrade over its predecessor. It still has the same class-leading low-light performance but adds in-camera 4K recording and a new S-Log3 shooting mode – something that’s typically found on Sony’s more expensive video cameras. This clearly makes the Mark II version of the a7S as a very video-centric ILC, so we took it out to see just how different the S-Log3 mode was from the S-Log2.

Understanding Video Resolutions

Understanding Video Resolutions

SD. HD. Full HD. Quad HD. UHD. 4K. DCI4K. Something-point-something-K. Video resolutions are confusing enough for consumers but as a content creator they are even more confounding. Here at BorrowLenses, we carry cameras that shoot everything from 720p HD all the way out to 6K. That variety can be somewhat confusing when you’re trying to sort out just which camera you need to rent and what resolution to actually shoot at once you’ve rented it. And that’s before you begin diving into the world of aspect ratios, too.

Nikon’s old 500mm and 600mm f/4 lenses were excellent bits of glass (though calling them “bits” is an understatement). But what’s good can always be improved and Nikon has done just that with this pair. By incorporating flourite elements into the design, they’ve made them between 20% and 25% lighter, which makes these two the lightest lenses in their focal length/aperture in the world.
