With over 6 million subscribers to his YouTube Channel, Casey Neistat knows more than just a thing or two about vlogging. After using Canon for years (with a stack of 11 empty camera and even more lens boxes to prove it), Neistat has made the switch to Sony and he bought an α7S II. After taking the camera out into the rain and cold for his first tests, he's posted his review.
"Initial thoughts...Without even looking at the image, I know this yields an incredible picture. That's why so many YouTubers use it. Also the form factor of this...Look how small and metally and just awesome this is. It feels really robust. I like everything about the hardware."
"I summation, I'm super excited about this new camera. It's fun to have something outside of the sphere of what I've been working with for the last decade. The main reason why I got it is for videos like this that I shoot here in the studio to leverage its 4K and autofocus and general awesomeness."
