I unboxed a new A7Siii last Friday, and have already shot three jobs with it, video of course. A 12 MP camera does not inspire awe in a world surpassing 50 MP for still photography, but the A7Siii produces stunning UHD and HD footage. It took a while to make up my mind, but these days I'm shooting events (mostly related to classical music) for live-streaming and social media, with three or more cameras. I needed a camera which would produce cinematic results, yet fit with other essential gear in a case I that would fit in my car (and I could lift). I have a Sony FS5, which is a joy to use, but the case takes as much space as all of my other gear put together. An FS5 is best used with a cage, base and rails for batteries and accessories. The full frame sensor (the FS5 is S-35) means I can get the full effect of 20 mm and shorter lenses which I already own. Social Distancing and often small venues make wide angle shots more important than in better times. The new grip (like the A7Riv) is deeper and contoured, which I find comfortable and suitable for heavy lenses. I ordered a Really Right Stuff L-plate at the same time. I don't expect to use this camera much without a tripod. With a prime lens, it will work well on a DJI S gimbal. The rear LCD swings to the side and can be rotated to face forward. I'm not a Vblogger, but may use that feature for shooting ID photos and family groups. The LCD is now fully touch-sensitive, including with the redesigned menu system, which resembles that of Nikon DSLRs, vertically by topic. You can also navigate the menu with the joystick, dials, and 4-way. That's nice if you have fat fingers or while wearing gloves. While the menu structure is different, most of the terms are familiar. Going through line by line, it only took about 20 minutes to configure the camera to my needs. There are at least two significant differences. SLog picture profiles are no longer limited to 3200K, 4300K and 5500K. They work with the same white balance set in the camera. Secondly, the HDMI output resolution automatically adjusts to the destination device, regardless of the setting for internal recording. For an Atomos Shogun 7, that's 4Kp60. However you can set the output to 2160p, 1080p or 1080i. There is no DCI setting (4096, 17:9) at present, but likely in a future firmware update. The HDMI connector is full-sized, which is stronger, more secure, and easier to use than the micro connectors used in other A7's. The camera does not overheat, at least if you use external power and recording. I shot 4K59.94 for 5 continuous hours, and the camera got barely warm to the tough. I set the temperature alarm to high, out of an abundance of caution. While the FS5 has face recognition, it's not very sticky if more than one person is in view. The A7Siii has face and eye recognition, and locks in on one subject if you touch the screen. I prefer to use manual focus (or push-to-focus) for reliability, but the new AF seems to be bullet proof. The color is superb, right out of the box. I shot in the Cine-1 profile this weekend, which required only small adjustments. I'll add photos and (maybe) video clips when I have more time.
