Sony has announced the addition of S-Cinetone to the A7SIII in an e-mail this morning. IMO it’s because of the eminent launch of the Sony FX3 which apparently includes the S-Cinetone profile. I personally love the addition, because I can now match my A7SIII and FX6, both in normal shooting but also in livestreaming. Lovely!
