After giving us a teaser last month, Sony Malaysia has now opened pre-orders for the new Sony A7S, a DSLR that has been dubbed “the camera that can see in the dark”. With a sensitivity of up to ISO 409,600, it actually does, too.
To demonstrate just how sensitive the A7S is, this video by Philip Bloom should help:
The A7S is another entry to the new A7 series of full frame mirrorless cameras from Sony, with the other two being the A7 and A7R – both equally impressive cameras in their own right. While the A7S sports a significantly smaller megapixel count (“only” 12.2MP) , it makes up for it in sensitivity: the A7S has a usable ISO range of 50 all the way up to 409,600, essentially allowing it to see in the dark.
However, the A7S won’t be cheap. Pre-orders for the A7S is now open at Sony’s online store, and the body only would cost a cool RM7,999. The body + lens packages are as below:
- A7S Zeiss Portrait Package 1: 35mm F2.8 lens – RM10,398
- A7S Zeiss Portrait Package 2: 55mm F1.8 lens – RM11,198
- A7S Zeiss Travel Package: 24-70mm F4 lens – RM11,689
- A7S Zoom Package: 70-200mm F4 lens – RM12,489
On top of that, each of the packages above will also include a free 64GB Class 10 SD card and a leather case. In addition, Sony is also offering several accessories for the A7S at reduced prices if you pre-order the A7S. You can get a spare A7S rechargeable battery at RM124 instead of RM249, the A7S mount adaptor (E-mount to A-mount) at RM839 instead of RM1,199, and finally the A7S vertical grip at RM699 instead of RM999.
The Sony A7S pre-order period starts from now until July 23, and the offers above are only while stocks last. For more information on the pre-orders, head on to Sony Malaysia’s online store product page for the A7S here.
