Features

Illustration

The world’s smallest and lightest full-frame system 

Introducing the smallest and lightest full-frame digital interchangeable-lens system with optical in-body image stabilisation (with FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 lens). Without compromising the performance of a full-frame camera, the component layout, body structure and internal mechanisms are all thoroughly reimagined. Operability and toughness have been optimised within a body that is approximately 19% smaller in volume and 22% lighter than the α7 III, at only 509 grams.

Illustration

Expressiveness only possible with a full-frame sensor

A 35-mm full-frame image sensor is about 30x larger than a 1/2.3-type smartphone sensor and even 2.3x larger than an APS-C sensor. By capturing significantly more light, it opens up new creative possibilities through wider dynamic range, less noise, and higher perceived resolution. Deep bokeh, using shallow depth of field, is also possible in combination with a bright (wide-aperture) full-frame lens.

Example image

Faithfully capture what you see

The back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and BIONZ X™ image processing engine work together beautifully. The extra-large pixels of a 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor collect more light, for a 15-stop wide dynamic range and smoother gradations from shadows to highlights. Excellent subjective resolution and reduced noise pair with precise colour reproduction for beautifully accurate skin tones and natural textures.

Example image

Stunning bokeh, enabled by a full-frame sensor

Bokeh is selective focus with a blurred background that makes the subject stand out. Portraits or close ups are enhanced with new meaning and depth. The α7C, with its full-frame sensor, can achieve bokeh when a smaller sensor-size camera with the same f-stop lens might not. When paired with over 50 lenses available from Sony, the α7C becomes an excellent choice for creative photographic composition and movie creation.

Example image

Impressive low-light images

With its large pixel size, in dimly lit situations or at high shutter speeds, the camera takes beautiful pictures with low noise, even when in the high sensitivity range. Standard ISO is from 100 up to ISO 51200 (expandable from ISO 50 to ISO 204800). Noise reduction is designed to be particularly effective in the common mid-sensitivity range to faithfully reveal textures and detail in shadows.

Example image

Express yourself with E-mount lenses

Over 50 Sony E-mount lenses enable broad creative expression, and a full-frame sensor allows you to leverage the full capabilities of Sony lenses. From wide angles, to enhanced creative compression effects on telephoto lenses, with the full-frame α7C the possibilities are endless.

Product image

The engine that powers your images

The BIONZ X image processing engine reflects Sony’s expertise in imaging technologies. It processes images with the front-end LSI in 16-bits and outputs 14-bit RAW data for richer, more natural gradations, even in silent or continuous shooting modes. Combined with the Sony sensor, it delivers excellent colour reproduction, noise reduction, and low-light performance. 

Illustration

Shoot sharp images without hand shake

5-axis image stabilisation lets you zoom, get close-ups and capture night scenes with greater clarity. Compensation is equivalent to a 5.0-step faster shutter speed. [1] Pitch [2] Yaw: for long focal lengths, [3] Horizontal [4] Vertical: for sideways/up-down during close-ups and macros, [5] Roll: for rotation during long exposures

Illustration

Stay focused anytime, anywhere 

Autofocus is improved by optimally applying the advancements of the α9, including the unique 4D FOCUS for wide-area, ultra-fast and steadfast tracking over time. With 693 phase-detection and 425 contrast-detection AF points, the sensor provides wide and high-density AF covering approx. 93% of the image. 

Usage image

Continuous focus on active subjects

When you're tracking a fast-moving subject, the camera can utilise built-in AI-based Real-time Tracking. This subject recognition algorithm draws on colour, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth), and face/eye information to recognise and hold onto your subject.

Usage image

Capture the eyes to capture the shot

Real-time Eye AF highlights Sony's Speed x AI technology. For both stills and movies, when a face is partially hidden, looking down, or even backlit, focus stays on the subject's eye for reliably impressive portraits. It supports all AF modes, and when [Face/Eye Priority in AF] is set to ON, it’s activated three ways: custom key, half-pressing the shutter, or AF-ON button. 

Usage image

Capture focus with animal eyes, too

With cutting-edge algorithms, the α7C supports Real-time Eye AF with animal eyes for still shots. Focus on the eye instead of the nose or whiskers will greatly increase your success in capturing images of animals, from favourite pets at home to unpredictable wildlife. Tracking continues even if the subject is partially obscured or if your camera orientation changes.

Product image

Activate Real-time Tracking anytime, with AF-ON button

When the focus mode is AF-S, AF-A, AF-C, or DMF, Real-time Tracking can now be activated by the AF-ON button. This is a convenient way to capture moving subjects in snap shots even with the focus mode set to AF-S. Being able to initiate Real-time Tracking simply with a thumb press anytime under AF modes expands your shooting possibilities.

Usage image

Intuitive touch operation and display 

When using Real-time Tracking, etc., touching the LCD monitor can initiate autofocus for both stills and movies. Touching the LCD monitor under selected settings, such as this allows for intuitive AF operation. When not using AF, focus can be checked with a quick glance at the LCD monitor. In DMF or manual focus (MF) modes, it brings up a peaking function that colour-highlights the area of sharpest focus to adjust the focus point. Choose from four peaking colours for best visibility or contrast. This is especially effective when delicate focusing is required like shooting with a macro lens.

Usage image

Don't miss the best shot of a moving subject

The α7C is capable of continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking, and up to 8 fps in live-view mode to keep focus on a moving subject and capture precise moments. When combined with silent shooting at up to 10 fps, it becomes possible to photograph in sound-sensitive environments, or capture active babies or pets without shutter sounds disturbing them.

Example image

Autofocus that works when it is getting dark 

Advanced algorithms contribute to high autofocus and distance measurement precision even at light levels as low as EV-4 in the AF-S mode, allowing for shots with precise AF even when scenes are dark.

Illustration

Take 4K movies to a higher level 

Enjoy shooting movies with the depth of field control, beautiful bokeh, and the clean low-light scenes only possible with a full-frame sensor. The α7C shoots 4K (QFHD: 840×2160) using full-pixel readout and 6K oversampling, for exceptional detail with minimal moiré and jaggies.

Usage image

Movie-making profiles for expressive creativity

With S-Log3 gamma profiles you can capture the full dynamic range of a scene, with up to 14-stops giving you access to fine details and gradations in both shadows and highlights during post-production. Alternatively, the HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) mode allows for direct HDR movie playback and workflows. In addition, the α7C has various Picture Profile settings to expand your possibilities for movie making.

Example image

In-camera high-speed, slow motion effects

It's easy to create movies in-camera at frame rates from 1 to 120/100 fps for up to 60x quick motion and 5x slow motion in Full HD resolution. Turn everyday motion into extraordinary artistic moments with ease, to add drama and excitement to your movies.

Product image

Designed for movie-making

The MOVIE button has been moved to the top panel to improve access when shooting from different angles, including from waist-level and for selfie or vlogging shots. Also, the  α7C codes vertical orientation in metadata so after uploading to social media via a smartphone, the newly popular vertical movie format plays back correctly, eliminating the need for post editing on a PC.

Product image

Clear digital audio recording

The α7C supports a digital audio interface through the camera’s Multi Interface (MI) Shoe. A digital microphone like the ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adaptor Kit provide clear digital audio for all kinds of movie recording, enhancing the sound to match the image. Like other MI shoe accessories, no cables or batteries are required, providing unrestrained freedom for movie-making.

Usage image

Expandable video creativity

External mic and headphone jacks help you customise your movie shooting process. The headphone jack supports high-quality headphones for accurate sound monitoring, and the audio output timing can be set to Live for optimum monitoring or Lip Sync to sync video and audio outputs together. You can connect a wide variety of external microphones to the mic input for great sound in varied environments. 

Usage image

Easy vlogging with a cable-free shooting grip

The compact and lightweight α7C is ideal for high-quality imaging during travel and vlogging. For easy one-handed shooting the GP-VPT2BT grip, via wireless Bluetooth® connection, puts key camera functions including zoom, record and shutter controls in easy reach and even converts to a mini-tripod. Match it with the ECM-B1M microphone for a compact, cable-free vlogging system.

Product image

External flash control from the camera

Most settings, including light output, of an attached compatible flash or Wireless Radio Commander (both sold separately) can be controlled via a camera menu with changes showing on the flash display. With compatible flash units, a new auto white balance function linked to the camera’s face detection system achieves natural colour tone for human faces by analysing the light incident on the subject’s face from both the flash and the surrounding environment.

Usage image

Sharing to the world with Wi-Fi® 

Wi-Fi® (2.4GHz or 5GHz) enables remote wireless shooting using Imaging Edge™ Desktop and Imaging Edge Mobile™ apps, for shooting creative angles, previewing, control, and transfer to PCs and mobile devices for distant selfies. After shooting, you can quickly save or share images around the world by pairing with a smartphone or tablet. FTP file transfer of still images is also possible, even during shooting.

Usage image

Bright and easy LCD monitor

The side-opening, vari-angle LCD monitor is intuitive to use, rotating 176° horizontally and 270° vertically. The large touch-sensitive screen, with approximately 921 thousand dots, provides optimum visibility even in bright outdoor light. You can frame your shot or selfie from virtually any position and angle for both stills and movies. Touch Tracking, Touch Focus, and Touch Shutter are all supported.

Illustration

Viewfinder for still-image photographers

A clear view of images in any environment is possible because the viewfinder is properly equipped despite the body’s compact size. The 2.35 million-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder achieves high contrast and faithful tonal reproduction for fine subject detail display. To enhance the user experience, the grip hold and shape have been carefully designed, so that compactness and usability are both uncompromised.

Illustration

Small and lightweight, yet robust and reliable

Magnesium alloy used for the top, front, and rear covers enhances body durability. For the α7C, camera parts and internal structures were carefully optimised to reduce size and weight. On the one hand, a monocoque structure patterned after airplane design helps to reduce weight while increasing the strength, realising a lightweight camera body with rigid flexibility. And on the other, the shape is supremely ergonomic and also weather sealed against dust and moisture for comfortable and confident shooting in a wide range of conditions.

Product image

Take more shots and shoot longer

Despite the compact body, the high-capacity NP-FZ100 battery provides power to capture up to an industry-leading 740 images on a full charge when using the LCD monitor, or 680 when using the viewfinder. This also allows up to 215 minutes of movie recording without a break, when using the LCD monitor. In addition, the USB Type-C® connector allows recharging from an AC adaptor or powerbank while continuing to shoot, for limitless shooting potential.
