Powerful performance and extraordinary image quality

Despite the compact size of the camera body, which is the world’s smallest and lightest, the α7C delivers the spectacular image quality for both stills and movies that you’d expect from a full-frame camera. Fast, wide and steadfast AF, rapid-fire continuous shooting and a handy vari-angle LCD monitor help capture the action whenever it happens.

Description

Full-frame imaging in a compact body

Superior light collection means high-quality, low-noise images with the Sony a7C.

Bigger sensors create better images, and the α7C’s full-frame sensor is much larger than the sensors in smartphones, compact digital cameras and similar-sized APS-C interchangeable-lens cameras. The resulting increased light collection allows for professional-quality images with reduced noise, and more retained detail in both shadows and highlights.

Sony a7C

Make a difference with a larger sensor

With a full-frame sensor it’s possible to take shots and achieve impressive images that are unique to this format. The α7C’s sensor is more than twice the size of the sensors found in APS-C cameras of similar body size, and up to 30 times larger than a smartphone sensor, for stunning images with greater depth and detail.

Sony a7C

Compact size, easy operation

The Sony a7C was fashioned to be compact, lightweight and portable without compromising genuine full-frame camera performance. This goal was accomplished by developing new mechanical components, such as a space-saving shutter and optical stabilisation unit, along with layout and structural enhancements.

Enjoy the full-frame advantage

The α7C’s full-frame sensor does more than just capture more light. Enhanced image depth, dynamic range and detail are all possible thanks to the large sensor and pixel size.

Capture all the beauty of the world

The 24.2MP Exmor R™ CMOS sensor works with Sony’s BIONZ X™ engine to deliver superb colour reproduction along with a wide 15-stop dynamic range, and it helps capture details and smooth transitions across all lighting conditions in both stills and movies.

Stunning images, even at fast shutter speeds and in dim light

The larger pixel sizes on the sensor allow for an increased signal-to-noise ratio, for beautiful images with more detail in textures and shadow areas. Noise reduction is particularly effective at the medium- and high-ISO sensitivities required for fast-moving or poorly lit subjects. Standard ISO100-51200 is extendable to ISO50-204800

Lenses to match your style

A vast E-mount lens line-up, from wide to telephoto, video and specialised

Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, a photographer or a movie creator, a diverse range of over 50 E-mount lenses is available to elevate your creativity. Compact full-frame lenses provide exceptional low-distortion images, even at wide focal lengths, and allow for beautiful image depth and bokeh.

4K recording for beautiful movie imagery

Shallow depth of field enables bokeh effects, one of the strengths of full-frame cameras. Full-pixel readout without pixel binning allows oversampling equivalent to 6K recording, for clean images with less moiré and jaggies.

Widen your expression with S-Log, HLG and Picture Profile options

S-Log3 support captures a wide dynamic range of 14 stops, revealing fine detail in both shadows and highlights in post-production. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) facilitates direct HDR playback and workflow, and Picture Profile provides various settings options for capturing images.

Capture the action as it happens, in beautiful detail 

State-of-the-art AF and speedy continuous shooting capability help ensure you won’t miss that important split-second shot. The α7C’s optical image stabilisation unit keeps it steady and blur-free whether you’re shooting stills or movies.

Full-frame image quality for movie creators

The α7C’s side-opening vari-angle monitor can be easily viewed, for example, even when a mic is attached, a gimbal is used, or when shooting from various positions. In addition, headphone and mic jacks allow you to use your favourite equipment. Plus, the large-capacity battery allows for extended shoots. All in all, the α7C is perfectly suited for vloggers and other creators.
