I finally had some time yesterday to take the new camera out and give it a spin. It’s definitely very different from using my old Canon 5D MKII and I can see why people who are used to DSLR’s get very frustrated with mirrorless cameras.
After a whole day with it and tweaking various things I can definitely say that I wish I’d made the switch sooner. Having such a small camera with such a fantastic sensor is just so incredibly liberating.
Oh, and everything they say about the colours on the A7S is absolutely true. It’s similar to Portra 400, but of course less punchy straight out raw. This really is the first camera ever where I’ve literally tweaked the image so very little in order to get the desired look I’m after.
