4K Video Shot with Sony A7iii

The all new α7 III is capable of recording high-resolution and wide dynamic range full-frame 4K HDR (HLG*) movies.

Full pixel readout with no pixel binning makes it possible to condense approximately 2.4 times** the amount of data required for 4K (the equivalent of the amount of data required for 6K) into 3840 x 2160 4K output. This oversampling process and full pixel readout without binning results in the highest possible 4K movie image quality.

Moreover, the combination of full-frame format plus HDR (HLG*) gamma achieves a surprisingly wide dynamic range. Full-frame movies recorded using the HLG profile will appear true-to-life with no blocked shadows or blown highlights when played back on an HDR (HLG*) compatible TV, without the need for color grading. The BT.2020 color space is supported, providing a wider color gamut.

Used Gear: Staff Picks

Every day we add new, used gear to the sales floor. It comes and goes so fast it’s hard to keep up with letting you all know what cool things are coming in. Here are a few that our employee, Kyle thinks are worthy of the blog! We’ll try and keep up with staff picks for the foreseeable future but make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see what we’ve been posting on social media.

The Contax T2 – We’ve seen some clean film point n shoots come through the store…this one is real clean. Here’s a reason why you should buy a Contax T2 : Reasons to buy a Contax T2. This thing has quick focus, a sharp lens and a sleek design.


Nikon D500- If you’re shooting sports or wildlife professionally or just for fun at your son or daughters sports event…the Nikon D500 is going to get you the images you want. It packs an APSC size sensor giving you extra reach on the long end of your telephotos. 10 fps at 20.9 MP for up to 200 frames in raw format…it’s hard to miss the moment when you can shoot for that long. This body as a shutter count less than 6,000 SHUTTER ACUATIONS(clicks). 



LEICA MP and ELMARIT-M 24mm F/2.8 – This lens camera combo would make you the king of the street photography world. It’s stealthy, lacking the word “Leica” or a red dot of any kind on the front. Here’s a good review on the MP.





SONY A7RII– You probably already know about the Sony A7RII. 42 megapixels, in-body stabilization, FULL-FRAME, expanded ISO of 102,400, 4k in-camera. We’ve seen a lot of these come in with the recent release of the A7RIII. The multiple bodies we have are clean and in good working order.



CANON 7D Mark II– The Canon 7D Mark II is another great option for sports or wildlife photographers. It has a 20.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor, shoots 10fps, built in GPS, magnesium alloy body construction. Slap the next item on the list and you’d have a killer set up.



(CANON) SIGMA SPORT 150-600mm – BEWARE: This is a hunk of a lens. It’s heavy, OKAY?! The colors that come out of it are amazing though, it’s weathered sealed, the hood isn’t made of plastic, focuses fast, and on cropped-sensor bodies, focal-length equivalency is approximately 240-960mm.



We’ve got plenty of more where this came from, but you know how busy the camera store can get. REMINDER: All of our used gear comes with a 6 MONTH warranty, covering everything besides accidental damage. Feel free to call us anytime asnd ask what’s in our cases!


Happy Photo Taking!
