Tony Northrup, Chelsea Northrup and their camera operator & video editor Frank Dinardi have been using three Sony a7S III cameras as their primary video cameras since the camera was released in the summer of 2020. They’ve produced more than 100 videos for YouTube and external clients with the cameras and have also tested all other competing video-oriented cameras.
Tony discusses the good and bad things about the camera, including autofocus, video quality, autoexposure, recording times, and more. In summary, the Sony a7S III is currently the best video camera available for YouTube and vlogging, however, it has room for improvement.
Sony A7s III is a native 4K camera with impressive video specs and a revised user interface. It can capture UHD 4K footage at up to 120p in 10-bit 4:2:2 encoding and promises 16-bit Raw video output. 4K video recording is possible at 120fps (up to 30min), 4K 60fps (up to 60min), and FullHD video at 240fps. The camera can record 4K video at 10-bit 4:2:2 internally, has up to 600mbps recording, and supports dual SD UHS-II or new CFexpress Type-A cards.
