The Sony A7S II offers excellent image quality in a tiny package, making it ideally suited for gimbal work.  Flying on my Optimus 3-axis gimbal, it's great for tracking, follow shots, vehicle to vehicle work, or any situation where the camera needs to move.  It's implementation of Sony S-log2 makes it easy to match to the FS7 or FX9 in post.  In addition to gimbal shots, I also employ it with a cage and suction mounts for vehicle rigging, or just on sticks for an additional angle.

Sony Alpha A7S II camera body
