I am really struggling between purchasing the Sony A7Rii or the A7Sii. I have been commissioned by a little museum in Lancaster county PA to purchase a video camera to do some interviews that would be used in the museum. Basically the history videos will be portrayed on HD monitors and possibly a few white screens. My first instinct is to simply purchase the Sony A7sii because it claims to be made more for video.
However, as I go through the video comparisons and forums I get confused. I am tempted by the high-resolution images on the A7Rii and it appears that the video is almost as good. In some ways, as with AF and some color issues the A7Rii appears perhaps even better.
We have a few nice Canon lenses. And we already have the Sony 24-135mm F/4 lens. I should mention that we do take pictures of things like churches, ancient manuscripts and other old stuff. We use these images in a “Ken Burns” way in the documentaries.
I could imagine that the cropping power of the A7sRii could be a benefit… However, we will never print a huge billboard.
So…. I would love to have your advice. . :-) I’m sure you are busy…so If you would have time to simply state “R” or “S”. Thank you!!!
