We had been hearing about the full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony and those were thought to be merely rumors only a few days back and now it certainly comes as a huge surprise that the successor for the Alpha A7 is soon going to hit the markets. In an announcement today, Sony has officially announced the Alpha A7s was revealed to us last month NAB in Las Vegas. According to the announcement, the Alpha A7s will hit the shelves and will be available for purchase staring July and will cost $2,500.
A7s is certainly the most powerful shooter out there and the heavy price tag for which it would be available is justified considering all the features packed inside it. It features the 35mm full-frame, 12.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor along with Sony's newly minted ILC which is capable of taking a 4K video for which you will only need an extra drive. On top of all this, the camera also has ISO range of 50 to 409,600 and other features such as built-in WiFi, NFC, a 25-point autofocus system and 4K movie output.
