The abilities of the Sony α7R II extend far beyond still photography and shooting the occasional video clip. In 2015, the camera was used to shoot a feature-length film in 4K that premiered at the Dallas International Film Festival. Three Days In August is the first full-length feature film shot with the Sony α7R II. The story of how that happened and what the filmmakers learned along the way was told at this year’s Cine Gear Expo in Hollywood. A panel consisting of Sony Artisan and Producer of Three Days In August Jeff Berlin, the film’s Director of Photography Bongani Mlambo, and Colorist Cem Ozkilicci came together to talk about the making of the film and how it was brought to life in 4K with the α7R II. The discussion was moderated by El Deane Naude Senior Product Information Manager at Sony.
