Review of the Sony A7S III: The Movie!

My full, in-depth review based upon almost two months of using the camera is finally here! This is, of course, a review of the videos features, not the stills features.

I wanted to have this review live on the day the camera was announced but with the two videos I had to make for Sony and Atomos for that same time, there just wasn’t enough time. My long-form review videos like this normally take between 3-5 weeks to cut. There was a HUGE amount to edit for this that was shot over many weeks, way more than the Sony FX9 review. Somehow, I edited this in 10 days…10 very long days of ridiculously long hours and little sleep.  Hopefully, you will find it worth the effort! It’s informative, fun, silly, educational, has loads of cameos and features BTS from both of the launch day films.

A review can only be a true review if you are unbiased and not being paid by the manufacturer. Whilst I was paid by Sony to make those films, that was all, not my opinion on the camera. This IS a review. My ethics are clearly stated at the beginning of the video.

There are chapters for the review on the YouTube page but I strongly recommend watching from start to finish as many of the features are discussed throughout, plus you will miss out on the enjoyment and flow of it as a whole. 🙂

If you enjoyed the review and would like to say thanks by buying me a drink that would be lovely! You can do that at
