We’ve seen many examples of the Sony A7S and just how good it is in low light. Well, here’s another that proves it is the low light king for affordable full frame cameras.
In this short preview video, Tony Northrup walks us through the high ISO settings of the Sony A7S, Sony A7 II and Nikon D810. The Sony A7S’ reach up to ISO 409,600 puts it just head and shoulders above the low light capabilities of the Nikon D810 and the A7 II.
Whether its the right overall camera for you, however, requires examining what you need out of the camera day to day. For low light shooting though, the Sony A7S remains in a league of its own.
New rumors suggest that Nikon will announce a special version of the D810 for astrophotography in the next couple of days.
If this turns out to be true, expect a similar setup to Canon’s 60Da, which features a modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity and allows the camera to better capture red hydrogen emission nebulae and other cosmic phenomena.
