Description

Gain control of expressive freedom

With outstanding imaging capability and high-speed performance contained in a compact body, the Sony A7 Mark III gives you the power, precision and flexibility to capture once-in-a-lifetime moments just as you like.

 Sony A7 Mark III

Rendering scenes in realistic detail

A newly developed back-illuminated image sensor and evolved image processing system fulfill various shooting needs with high-quality imaging capabilities that you would expect only of a full-frame camera.

Sony A7 Mark III

Reducing noise in high-resolution images

Up to 1.5-stop improvement in image quality

Standard ISO range is extended to ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 50-204800 for stills), while Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction technologies maintain image details and cut noise. With highly effective performance in mid-to-high sensitivity ranges, you can shoot at high ISO with no concerns about noise and image deterioration.

Subtle gradation from shadow to highlight

Dynamic range of up to approx. 15 stops

Approx. 15-stop dynamic range at low-sensitivity settings is achieved, thanks to a revamped CMOS sensor and image processor that provide for smooth gradation from shadow to highlight. This gives you greater freedom of creative imaging.

Faithful colour reproduction

More accurate colour reproduction straight out of the camera

Colour reproduction performance is dramatically enhanced, giving subjects that you capture more natural colour that is faithful to how the colours look in real life. Skin tones in portraits, blue skies in landscapes, and vivid hues in still life images look very realistic as a result.

Steadier shots with 5-axis stabilisation

The latest high-precision stabilisation uses stabilisation unit and gyro sensors and algorithms to achieve a 5.0-step

shutter speed advantage in a system that compensates five types of camera shake with a wide range of lenses, and delivers excellent performance.

14-bit RAW output for rich gradations

For smoother, more natural gradation, the latest BIONZ X image processor and front-end LSI process image signals in 16-bit form. This processor also allows 14-bit RAW data output, even when in silent or continuous shooting mode.

4D FOCUS — AF performance evolves

AF performance is improved using the same AF advancements as in the α9 and applying it optimally, so once the α7 III captures such unpredictably moving subjects as dancers, boxers, and wild animals in action, it won’t easily let them go.

4D FOCUS: Stunning wide coverage

693. Remarkable number of phase-detection AF points

This camera features 693 phase-detection AF points covering approx. 93% of image area plus 425 densely positioned contrast-detection AF points to improve focus.

Eye AF revolutionises portraiture

With the α7 III, Eye AF can now be used with AF-C mode, for fast, effective eye detection/tracking performance when shooting stills. The easy maintenance of optimum focus on moving subjects can totally transform your portraiture.

Focus control via touch screen

Focus control via touch screen

The α7 III has Touch Focus function, and a Touch Pad function for you to fingertip-drag the focus frame intuitively while using the viewfinder.

AF in Focus Magnifier

AF in Focus Magnifier

Use autofocus for stills while focus area is magnified in viewfinder/monitor, and magnify view after autofocusing. This is ideal for focusing on a small area and other precision-focus photography.

More versatile AF settings all around

More versatile AF settings all around

AF tracking sensitivity for stills is adjustable in five steps. AF areas/points are changeable as you switch between horizontal and vertical orientation. Focus point settings can be assigned to custom buttons.

Capture decisive moments

Fast continuous shooting captures the height of a moment

The α7 III can shoot in a continuous burst at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking and up to 8 fps burst shooting when shooting with live-view mode. The camera also supports silent shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking at maximum resolution.

Confidence-boosting continuous shooting

Confidence-boosting continuous shooting

Capture an instant action with continuous shooting of up to 10 fps — or 8 fps for live-view shooting — with AF/AE tracking. Up to approximately 177 JPEG (standard) images, 89 compressed RAW images, or 40 uncompressed RAW images can be captured in one continuous burst.

Shoot continuously in absolute silence

Shoot continuously in absolute silence

This camera allows silent shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking. Silence is critical for various scenes, when even slight noise can mean missing a chance at an ideal shot.

Anti-flicker shooting

Anti-flicker shooting

Artificial lighting flicker is detected and the shutter is timed to minimise possible exposure and colour inconsistency in images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as between continuous shots.

Better operation during continuous shooting

Better operation during continuous shooting

Groups of shots taken in continuous mode can be reviewed, deleted or protected quickly. You can access a menu screen and change settings, as well as operate image playback during data writing.

More realistic, expressive movies

High-resolution 4K HDR

As well as new capability of recording stunning 4K movies through 2.4-times higher oversampling, the Sony A7 Mark III features a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile, supporting instant HDR workflow.

  • High-resolution 4K movies
  • Fast Hybrid AF
HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) for instant HDR workflow

HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) for instant HDR workflow

A new HLG picture profile supports instantaneous HDR workflow. Movies recorded in HLG picture mode will appear true-to-life with minimised black-crush or blown highlights that can deteriorate gradation and details, without colour grading.

[1] High flexibility to fine-tune images as desired (colour grading required)
[2] Instant high-quality image (colour grading not required)

Supports S-Log3 and Slow and Quick Motion

Supports S-Log3 and Slow and Quick Motion

S-Log3 improves gradation from shadows to mid-tones and widens dynamic range up to 14 stops. Also, select a frame rate from 1 to 120/100 fps for up to 60x quick motion and 5x slow motion.

Shoot with more assured reliability

Reliable features and operation in a compact body

 The Sony A7 Mark III operability is enhanced by fast control during shooting, dazzlingly clear views through the Tru-Finder, versatile connectivity, extended shooting endurance from various power sources, plus high durability and resistance to wet and dusty conditions.

Extended shooting between battery changes

Longer battery life to shoot for more professional lengths

The Sony A7 Mark III can use a NP-FZ100 battery with approx. 2.2 times as much capacity as a NP-FW50 battery, allowing you to shoot up to approximately 710 photos with one full charge. BC-QZ1 optional battery charger allows quicker charging than charging via USB.

Dual media slots, UHS-II support

Dual media slots, UHS-II support

With two media slots on the Sony A7 Mark III, including one that’s UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing, the α7 III can simultaneously or relay record, separate RAW/JPEG data and stills/movies, and copy data between cards.
