Nighttime into day?
The FX sensor in the Sony A7S and A7SII is incredible. Photographs taken at iso 64,000 are remarkably sharp. So sharp, in fact, it is possible to turn nighttime into day. It is actually a bit unnerving to see what can be accomplished if you are willing to experiment.
In the past month, Nikon has introduced two new cameras with ISO specifications that should be similar to those of the two Sony gems. These cameras, the D-500 and D-5, boast 20 mega pixel sensors.
My suspicion is the Sony sensor, due to 12 mega pixels and the FX sensor size, is going to outperform the Nikon in low light due to the fact that each pixel in the Sony FX sensor is almost twice the size as each of the pixels in the Nikon sensor. Only time will tell, however, Nikon’s leap in low light capability will surely be a reason why professional photographers and advanced amateurs will order both Nikon cameras with great enthusiasm.
Technology generates enthusiasm and technology sells a lot of cameras.
