12.2MP Sensor Optimized for 4k and Low Light Video
The a7S is the world’s first camera to utilize the entire width of a full-frame image sensor in 4K video acquisition. It does this without cropping or line skipping as it can read and process data from every one of the sensor’s pixels. This allows 4K video shooters to utilize all of the artistic and creative benefits provided by the unique sensor.

Fast Intelligent AF in Light as Low as EV -4
Equipped with the same high-precision Fast Intelligent AF system as the a7R camera, the a7S drastically improve AF sensitivity in low-light that can go as low as -4 EV.

New-generation RGB Filter with Gapless On-chip Lens Design
The larger than normal pixel size on the 35mm full-frame image sensor with effective 12.2MP, employs Sony’s latest image sensor technologies on the a7S. To boost the image sensor’s light collection efficiency, a new-generation RGB color filter has been adopted, in addition to the gapless on-chip lens design, light concentration technology and photodiode expansion technology delivers unprecedented high sensitivity and low-noise levels with high dynamic range in every light condition from severe low light to bright sunlight. By applying an AR coating on the surface of the seal glass over the image sensor, ghosting and flare have been minimized, further contributing to the a7S’s high image quality.

Uncompressed 4:2:2 Full HD and 4K QFHD Output Via HDMI
In video mode, the a7S can output 4K video at QFHD (3840x2160) in 4:2:2 to an optional external 3rd party 4K recorder via the HDMI.
