The following video presents Sony | α | α7 III – Full frame 4K HDR (HLG) sample movie:
“α7 III is capable of recording high-resolution and wide dynamic range full-frame 4K HDR (HLG*) movies.
Full pixel readout with no pixel binning makes it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times** the amount of data required for 4K (the equivalent of the amount of data required for 6K) into 3840 x 2160 4K output. This oversampling process and full pixel readout without binning results in the highest possible 4K movie image quality.
Moreover, the combination of full-frame format plus HDR (HLG*) gamma achieves a surprisingly wide dynamic range. Full-frame movies recorded using the HLG profile will appear true-to-life with no blocked shadows or blown highlights when played back on an HDR (HLG*) compatible TV, without the need for color grading.
The BT.2020 color space is supported, providing a wider color gamut.
* Connect to an HDR (HLG) compatible Sony TV via a USB cable when displaying HDR (HLG) movies.
** 24p recording. Approx. 1.6 times for 30p recording.“
Sony won the EISA awards in their 2018 round-up for the following three cameras and two lenses:
- Sony A7 III Camera
- Sony a7r III Camera
- Sony RX10 IV Camera
- Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 GM (SEL1635GM) Lens
- Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS (SEL100400GM) Lens
The following video presents Sony | α | α7R III High resolution 4K:
“Full pixel readout in the Super 35 mm mode, without the need for pixel binning, makes it possible to condense 5K (15-megapixel) data into high resolution, extraordinarily beautiful 4K movies with minimal moiré and jaggies. Advanced image processing also allows full-frame 4K movie recording with dramatically improved image quality at mid to high sensitivities. Super 35mm or full-frame recording can be selected as required. Fast Hybrid AF performance during movie recording has been refined, providing a wide AF area that is similar to that provided for still images. AF now accurately locks onto moving subjects over a wider area.“
