I own a small real estate photography company and I purchased this camera just a few weeks ago for two reasons:1) To add video to what I offer my customers as I see video as a huge and growing trend in my fieldand2) Because I wanted smaller files sizes and better dynamic range for my stills work as compared to my a6000.I have only had this for about a month now, but I feel that it clearly was the right choice. It was ordered along with the Sony 16-35mm lens which has done well too.I am not a specs-geek myself and I don't think I ever will be. We all see all those people who hash out specs and capabilities of different camera systems online and debate how many stops of dynamic range a camera has and all that. I often wonder how much money they are earning with their camera or if they just get some kind of ""good feels"" for waging war in various forums.If you are thinking of buying this camera and think that it is going to make you some kind of wizard at photography or a wizard with videoyou likely should put those assumptions in a box and then put that box on a high shelf. I am going to post a series of images below. Half of them were created with images captured with this A7s2 camera. Half of them were taken with created with images captured with the a6000. Tell me if you think any of them are seriously better than the others. I don't think there's any significant difference at all myself.I suggest everyone select the right tool for the job. Where stills work is concerned, this a7s2 has a BIG advantage in the small file size as compared to my 24mp a6000. I can shoot a house, pull the card, and upload the files to the cloud nice and easy when they are 12mp. Then text my editor to pull them down and pre-edit them for me and have them waiting for final review and touch up when I get home. If I shot all my frames on 24mp (or God forbid the 48mp of the a7r2) I think that uploading the files on-site would be a major paint if not completely undoable in the trenches of a 5-house workday. This would apply DOUBLE to someone in my field who doesn't use off-camera flash but instead choose a run-and-gun HDR approach to the business where they are just peeling off hundreds of frames for each and every shoot.Furthermore, the low-light capabilities of this camera make certain shooting situations a breeze. I find that most basements in small, inexpensive homes are not good candidates for using flash. So I switch gears and DO shoot 3-shot all-ambient-light HDR in basements. Often DIMLY LIT basements. With my a6000there was really an upper limit of about ISO 800 for low-value basement shots. More than that and you start worrying about noise. This means that sometimesthat final 3 stop overexposed frame would take a LONG time to shoot. We're talking 8 seconds. Then you gotta wait another 8 seconds for it to ""process"". This is NOT the case with this a7s2. I can easily push ISO to 3200 with zero worries. I've even done 6400 and been pleased with the results. So this eliminates this little problem for me.Where video is concerned, it does what everyone says it does. Shoot in Picture Profile 8 to get slog3 to maximize your dynamic range in post. Obviously, everyone is shooting different things, but if you're shooting real estate walk-through videos, I suggest shooting in shutter priority mode, Auto ISO, in 30 frames per second recording (30p) and 1/60th shutter speed. Also, use a fly-by-wire lens like the Sony 16-35, not a manual aperture prime lens or anything like that. You want the camera to be able to stop down the aperture all the way to f22 if need be when you are doing something like approaching a window. The slog3 profile shoots at 1600 ISO or higher and I found out the hard way that it's easy to overexpose. Using shutter priority mode and allowing the camera to adjust aperture on the fly goes a long way in overcoming that problem without having to resort to ND filters.I shoot video from a DJI Ronim M stabilizerso that helps keep footage nice and smooth. The multi-axis IBS stabilization built-in to this s2 helps on that front too I'm guessing. I'm pleased with it.What about downsides?Well, there are SOME situations where I want more resolution. I shoot all my exteriors still with my a6000/Rokinon 12mm setup. I find that I may want to ""crop to zoom"" in post a bit more on exteriors and so having 24mp vs just 12mp is better for outside shots.I also like the lightness factor of the a6000. Two-story houses are usually best photographed from 8' to 12' above ground level. I bring a painters pole with an Arca Swiss clamp on the end with me to every shoot and so I can just put the a6000 on that and run it up to the desired height and then shoot my most important shots (the exterior front of the house) from higher up using the Sony WIFI app. I would NOT feel comfortable doing this with the a7s2 and 16-35mm lens. They weight quite a bit more and are just too pricey to put up on a pole like that.Finally, shooting out-of-doors in slog3 has required that I use Breakthrough Photography's 6-stop ND. If the sun is out, you really want to use that picture profile because there is going to be dynamic range issues wherever the sun is hitting trees or the edge of the house or whatever and is casting shadows. But again, you have to shoot at ISO 1600 for that and even at f22it sometimes is overexposed. So ND filters there. A mentor of mine just decided to buy both and use the s2 for interiors and r2 for exteriors for video. Says it's the best choicebut I'll have to wait to get some more coin if I'm gonna get another pricey camera.
