Sony A7rII / A7sII New Firmware – XAVC Recording with SDHC Cards

  29.04.2016   Alik   Uncategorized   No comments

Sony has issued a new firmware for the Sony A7rII and A7sII that will now allow XAVS S video to be recording on SDHC memory cards.

Before you had to have SDXC memory cards, or memory cards larger than 64GB to record XAVC or 4k video on Sony cameras.

I’ve seen people trick their cameras into using SDHC memory cards before so it was always plausible that this feature could work.

Sony cameras are notoriously bad at dealing with memory cards and what update tells us is that Sony is finally looking at the way their cameras interface with memory cards and improving upon them.

Hopefully there are more improvements behind the scenes that fix the compatibility issues Sony cameras randomly have with memory cards, figures crossed. Update: It does not.

This could also mean we’ll see this same update roll out into all of Sony’s other 4k cameras.

Sony FE E Mount Native Lens List

Over the last year Sony has really worked hard on updating its E mount lens lineup. It’s something that they seem to take very serious and if you’re an owner of a Sony A7, A7r, or A7s you are very fortunate.

Since there seems to be a new lens every few months, I’ve decided to keep a consolidated list of all available native full frame E mount lenses.

I was about to update my metabones adapter to the MK IV but now, I think that money would be better spent on new glass.

See the list. There are surprisingly a lot of lenses now.
