Sony Alpha a7C Full-Frame Compact Mirrorless Camera Body (Silver)
The Sony Alpha a7C is for creators who demand full-frame quality and performance, but also want a compact lightweight camera they can take anywhere and use for all types of still and video creation. It is world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera with all the power and performance of a full-frame in a design more akin to APS-C bodies. Thanks to newly-developed devices and construction, including a compact electromagnetic-drive shutter mechanism, a compact 5-axis in-body image stabilization unit and a monocoque magnesium alloy construction, the Alpha a7C redefines the norms of what a full-frame camera can be.
Advanced 24.2MP Image Sensor
The Alpha a7C features a 35mm full-frame 24.2MP back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor with front-end LSI and an updated BIONZ X processing-engine. It achieves high sensitivity and low-noise with an impressive ISO range of ISO 50 to 204800 and massive 15-stop dynamic range. Images are processed in 16-bit form by the front-end LSI and BIONZ X processor before being output as 14-bit RAW data for improved expression of gradations from shadows to highlights. Full-pixel readout movie is oversampled from 6K and reordered as incredible 4K with no line-skipping, pixel-binning or cropping.
4K Movie with Full Pixel Readout
The Alpha a7C is exceptionally capable as a video camera, offering 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video recording across the full width of the full-frame image sensor. In video mode, it uses full pixel readout without pixel binning to collect approximately 2.4x the amount of data required for 4K movies, and then oversamples it to produce high quality 4K footage with exceptional detail and depth. Both S-Log2 and S-Log3 are available for increased color grading flexibility, while HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) is included to support an Instant HDR (High Dynamic Range) workflow.
Incredible 4D FOCUS
Incredible autofocus is achieved with 693 focal-plane phase-detection AF points that cover approximately 93% of the image area and 425 contrast AF points. When combined, both contrast and phase detection AF points form the 4D FOCUS hybrid AF system for wide, fast, reliable AF that locks on and stays locked on.
Real-Time Autofocus Tracking
Real-time AF Tracking employs Artificial Intelligence (AI) to tenaciously track moving subjects when shooting stills or movies. It is initiated automatically when the shutter button is half-pressed or with AF On button. The subject to be tracked can also be specified by touching it on the monitor when the Touch Tracking function is engaged.
Side-Opening Vari-Angle Monitor
Ideal for Vlogging and easy composition, the Alpha a7C features a 3-inch (3.0 type) 921K (approx.) touch-sensitive LCD panel with side-opening vari-angle mechanism that affords plenty of monitor positioning freedom for high and low viewpoints as well as waist-level, vertical, and selfie positions. Rotating sideways by as much as 176 degrees, up by as much as 180 degrees, and down by as much as 90 degrees, and with ample brightness that provide optimum visibility even in bright outdoor conditions. In addition, it supports Touch Tracking and Touch Focus functions.
Ultra-Fast OLED with EVF Benefits
The 2.36 million-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder has the ability to deliver continuous live shooting at up to 8 fps with AF/AE tracking - making it easy to track fast moving subjects - thanks to overall improvements in the EVF algorithm. This offers photographers a shooting experience with the immediacy of an optical viewfinder, while still offering all of the benefits of an electronic viewfinder including a live preview of exposure, white balance and several other camera settings.
Compact 5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilization
The 5-axis in-body image stabilization unit has achieved a substantial size reduction yet maintains effective 5-step stabilization. The stabilization allows you to shoot images and capture video free from worry about camera shake, regardless of lens attached and without a tripod or gimbal.
Up to 10fps with Silent or Mechanical Shutter
To capture those fleeting and definitive moments, the Alpha a7C is equipped with a fast shutter mechanism and refined image processing system that allows it to capture full 24.2MP images at up to 10 fps with continuous and accurate AF/AE (autofocus and auto exposure) tracking. Capture up to 223 JPEG (Fine L) images, 115 compressed RAW images or 45 uncompressed RAW images in a single continuous burst. This high speed 10 fps mode is available with either a mechanical shutter or an electronic shutter for completely silent shooting.
Wireless connectivity and PC Remote shooting let the photographer move around with fewer restrictions for a smoother, more efficient setup and workflow. The ability to connect the camera and computer via 2.4 or 5 GHz Wi-Fi provides the versatility, reliability, and speed needed to transfer image data to the computer while shooting images in continuous mode.
USB Type-C Connector
In addition to high speed Wi-Fi and wireless PC connectivity, the Alpha a7C is equipped with a SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.2 Gen 1) USB Type-C connector that supports extremely fast wired data transmission, plus FTP data transfer with background transfer capability, allowing images to be sent to a specified FTP remote server while the photographer is still shooting or reviewing images. It also provides power when connected to an external USB power source for extended operating time.
Compact, Dust and Moisture Resistant
Along with a revision of the body’s internal structure and materials, a lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy monocoque design. Sealing is provided throughout the body to minimize dust and moisture ingress, allowing it to function reliably in challenging environments.
