Full HD Slow Motion Camera: High Frame Rate, 4K Resolution, and Full-frame Sensor

The first thing you need to know about the a7S is that it can record 1080p footage internally or be used to output 4K video to an external recorder. The internal 1080p footage is recorded using the XAVC S format, a more consumer-friendly version of Sony’s XAVC system. This is the first of the company’s cameras to use the format, which frees the camera from the bitrate restrictions of the AVCHD standard.
