Does audio record when shooting 120fps? Also, is digital zoom and/or clear image zoom available during 120fps?
Asked by: Jacob
No audio is recorded at 120FPS. Played back at 24FPS or 30FPS, the 120FPS audio would be unusable. Digital zoom or Sony Clear Image Zoom are features of camcorders and are not available on interchangeable lens cameras.

Do Olympus Zuiko ED lenses work on the A7S? If so, what adapter is best?
Asked by: Anonymous
Olympus Zuiko ED lenses are not compatible with the Sony a7S. There is no adapter or converter that will let you use one on the a7S.
