This camera’s 12.2MP full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor work together to enable an dynamic range with minimal noise and notable sensitivity from ISO 100-102,400, which is further expandable to ISO 50-409,600. This impressive range paired with large photosites makes this camera the perfect tool for a DP shooting in low light conditions.

TIPS FROM THE TECH
The A7s II is a camera that has a ton of features with a small price tag. It’s unsurpassed when it comes to low light shooting, and can give your production the flexibility of high resolutions and high frame rates.
The small body design is more styled for still photo shooting, so it can be a challenge on a cinema set. When rented at Birns the A7s II comes in a Wooden Camera cage with plenty of mounting points, a mini rod set up, and an XLR audio adapter among other aks. These accessories are highly recommended to make this little camera feel and preform best in a studio setting.
Keep in mind- if you are unfamiliar with this camera it can be a particularly confusing menu system to try and learn fast. I recommend trying to stop by and get your hands on one before shooting!
