From EOS HD:

  • 6K capable image processor and codec to maximise use of 24MP 6K stacked CMOS sensor
  • Cinema 4K resolution (4096 x 2160) like GH5
  • S-LOG and picture profiles, possibly revised and new HDR gamma curve added for their new TVs
  • 10bit codec like GH5
  • Bigger battery and more power efficient sensor and LSI
  • Better haptic feedback from the body controls and dials
  • Better placement of video record button, addition of joystick
  • Like on a Canon DSLR, the body surface drops away around important controls like rear jog-dial, which is now raised up for a more tactile feel
  • Better menus with video options separated from stills menus
  • Vastly reduced rolling shutter from faster sensor

    Man I hope this is true..

    Sorry, but a 24 MP stacked sensor for the a7siii is (in my opinion) very unlikely. I am sure they will take the new body with 2 sd card slots etc, but the sensor should have 20 MP, likely less.

    Sony really needs to step up the game for A7S III, because this time Panasonic has done wonders with the GH5 and many shooters are migrating…

  • Joris Jumper

    4K 60fps or I switch…

  • Sagun Lama

    It should be a gh5 killer, if not lot of video graphers switching to gh5 along with me. I am a sony shooter and waiting for a7s III.
    My few desires for this camera:
    1: 6k captures as a6300 but must be 6k deliver too to beat gh5 and most of the video cameras in the market.
    2: must have no heating issues
    3: contineous video recording

    I don’t really care about touch screen or big megapixels.

    • Dan Hopkins

      Totally agree about 2 and 3! If I don’t seen improvements in those areas i’m probably going to sell my GH4 & A7s MarkII for the A7s MarkI and GH5

    An electronic ND would be awesome.
