Our 5 Favourite Sony Cameras for Video in 2020

Sony has consistently led the way when it comes to innovative mirrorless and bridge cameras. Now, the renowned camera brand has a stellar lineup of cameras made for video.

We’ve compiled a list of what we believe to be the best Sony cameras for video in 2020. These cameras are perfect for filmmaking and vlogging and will produce incredible 4K videos you can share on YouTube, Instagram, or any other platform. 

The Sony A7S Mark III

Easily one of the best mirrorless cameras around today, the Sony A7S Mark III is an impressive full-frame camera with incredible 4K video performance. 

The A7S III is the only camera in a compact size that can record 4K at 60p full-frame, without any crop, internally, in 10-bit 4:2:2, and without limitations on recording time. Phew.

This Sony full-frame camera has an unparalleled new electronic viewfinder with over 9 million pixels, giving you a bright, detailed view of the scene. 

Some of the A7S III’s best work is when it’s paired with other hardware or programs. Used with the optional XLR microphone adapter, the camera can internally save four different audio channels. If you record externally over an HDMI port, you get 16-bit RAW video, excellent for high dynamic range production. 

The camera also pairs well with other programs for great high dynamic range production (HDR). 

The only big downside is that the camera can take just 12MP stills, making it better suited to videography alone.

The Sony A7 Mark III

The Sony A7 Mark III produces cinematic 4K video that works beautifully in scenes with wide shots or low light. 

The camera’s astounding high ISO produces little to no noise, while a full-frame sensor guarantees exceptional low light footage. The camera uses the full sensor with no crop factor when recorded at 24p or a 1.2x crop for 30p.

The A7 Mark III comes with plenty of recording modes and aids, including focus peaking and zebra exposure indicators. The S-Log mode is helpful with colour grading in post-production too.

In short, this is one of the smallest and most affordable full-frame cameras you can get in 2020.
