Sony A7S III
Sony’s 12.1-megapixel A7S III was worth the five-year wait. It has the same incredible low-light capability of its predecessors, but adds much-needed features like improved stabilization, a flip-out touch display and 4K video at up to 120 fps. Video dynamic range is dramatically improved, and it’s now a stellar run-and-gun and vlogging camera. As a bonus, if you don’t require high-resolution images, it’s one of the quickest cameras available for photography. The biggest downsides are the low-resolution sensor and high $3,500 price tag.

It might not boast 6K or 8K video resolution of some of its rivals, and with only 12.1MP it’s not a powerhouse super-stills machine either. But apart from a big and expensive cinema camera, it’s the only camera that can shoot 4K at 60p full frame with no crop, recorded internally, in 10-bit 4:2:2 with no limitations on recording time and with all the advanced AF functions still working.ePHOTOzine90Excellent video qualityThe Sony Alpha A7S III is an exceptional video camera, with excellent low-light performance, however, it may not have enough resolution for stills photographers.
