We’re happy to announce that the Sony A7Siii is available to hire from DGTL Cine Hire. It is the sequel to one of the most popular mirrorless cameras for video pros – the A7Sii.

About the Sony A7Siii

It is a significant upgrade, with the following amongst the headline stats:

  • 10 bit 4:2:2 recording
  • 4k @ up to 120FPS
  • fully articulating touch screen
  • improved image stabilisation
  • proper phase detect autofocus with 759 points
  • 15 stops of dynamic range
  • better colour science
  • no recording limits

It keeps the low light performance from the previous gen, which was one of the strongest points of the A7Sii.
