Do You Really Need the New Sony a7s III? We Examine the Users

In Pro Camera Reviews, we recently discussed the new Sony a7s III.

We recently finished reviewing the new Sony a7s III camera. Overall, we feel it’s great, but there are ways that it could have been made better. The new camera retains a 12MP full frame sensor but has a brand new processor. With that comes the new touchscreen interface. This series has mostly been important for journalists and night shooters, and we found that it still is. So we took a deeper dive into it and the mentality of a user.

The Sony a7s III in This Episode

The Cult of the Sony a7s: The a7s series of cameras feature small megapixel sensors, which give them the ability to see in the dark. These cameras have always been a hit with videographers. However, they have never been seen as a tool for photographers. Over the last week, we have been putting the newest member of the a7s series, the a7s III, to the test. Given its low light capabilities, the a7s III should be ideal for documentarians and photojournalists who need a camera that’s an excellent performer in all lighting situations. Find out what our first impressions are of the Sony a7s III, and see for yourself if it has the chops to be a good camera for photographers.

The Panasonic S5 Should’ve Been Their First L Mount Camera: We’re reviewing the Panasonic S5 and are really liking it so far. In fact, we strongly believe this should’ve come first! It has everything photographers want. Modest megapixels, dual card slots, improved autofocus, good weather sealing, etc. What’s not to like? Best of all, it’s very small. And there’s innovation here that’s worth talking about too. We really believe that if the Panasonic S5 were launched first, the L mount would be in an even stronger position. This is the camera they needed first. And photographers are really going to love this one. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of the Panasonic S5. Overall, it’s probably the best camera the L mount currently has.

The Panasonic G100: Somewhat of an Oddball Camera: There’s no denying that Panasonic has been focusing heavily on its newer Full-Frame Lumix platform than its Micro Four Thirds offerings over the last couple of years. The company’s push into the Full-Frame arena with the L Mount alliance has seen the M4/3 platform pushed out of the limelight. However, a new M4/3 camera did hit the streets this year. The Panasonic G100 is somewhat of an oddball camera that’s designed to capture the hearts of videographers and hybrid content creators. Does it have what it takes to compete with other cameras in its price range? Find out as we offer our thoughts about it.
