Sony Alpha a7 III 24.2MP Full Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)

Refined for extraordinary image capture control and quality, the a7 III has everything you need. An entirely renewed image sensor and image processing system further enhance image quality. Improved overall AF performance, high-speed continuous shooting up to 10fps, 4K movie recording capability, and operability that has been dramatically upgraded from the a7 II allow you to capture more decisive moments.

24.2MP BSI Full-Frame Image Sensor

The newly developed 24.2MP back-illuminated 35mm full-frame Exmor R CMOS image sensor is paired with a front-end LSI that effectively doubles the readout speed of the image sensor, as well as an updated BIONZ X processing-engine that boosts processing speed by approximately 1.8 times compared to the a7 II. This results in high sensitivity with low-noise performance and wide 15-stop dynamic range. It also has the ability to output 14 bit RAW format even when shooting in silent or continuous mode.

Up to 10 fps with Silent or Mechanical Shutter

The a7 III is equipped with a refined image processing system that allows it to capture full 24.2MP images at up to 10 fps with continuous and accurate AF/AE tracking for up to 177 Standard JPEG images, 89 compressed RAW images or 40 uncompressed RAW images. This high speed 10 fps mode is available with either a mechanical shutter or an electronic shutter for completely silent shooting. The a7 III can also shoot continuously at up to 8 fps in live view mode with minimal lag in the high-contrast 2.36-million dot OLED electronic viewfinder or 3-inch 922K-dot tiltable touch LCD screen.

4K Full-Frame HDR Movie

High-resolution full-frame 4K movies with full-pixel readout without pixel binning that condenses approximately 2.4 times the amount of data required for 4K movies results in minimal moiré and jaggies. Advanced image processing makes it possible to record full-frame 4K movies with outstanding image quality in the mid-to-high ISO range, so you make the most of the 4K movie format's unique potential in every shot.

High-Resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder

Providing high resolution and contrast, plus the excellent gradation and color reproduction that are advantages of OLED viewfinders, this approximately 2359K-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder faithfully depicts images with clear corner-to-corner visibility. Magnification is 0.78x. ZEISS T* coating greatly reduces obtrusive lens reflection on the ocular lens.

5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilization

The 5-axis in-body SteadyShot image stabilization system has been fine-tuned to support high-resolution shooting capacity, resulting in an IS system at 5-step shutter speed advantage. Camera shake is effectively compensated on 5 axes: pitch and yaw that have the largest overall impact on image quality; X and Y shift that is most apparent at high magnification, and roll that can ruin night shots and movies. Stabilization is applied to the live-view image, making it easier to frame fast-moving subjects. Effective stabilization is provided for movies as well as stills, and for A-mount lenses attached via a mount adapter.

Hybrid Autofocus System

The a7 III features a world class autofocus system consisting of 693 focal-plane phase-detection AF points that cover approximately 93% of the image area, 425 contrast AF points and reliable Eye-AF. 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. This advanced system delivers AF acquisition in about half the time as the a7 II in low-light conditions with tracking that is approximately 2 times more accurate as well. The acclaimed Eye AF feature is also approximately twice as effective, and is available when utilizing AF-C mode and with Sony’s A-mount lenses with an adapter.

Sony Alpha a7 III 24.2MP Full Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)

Sony Alpha a7 III 24.2MP Full Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only) SKU: ILCE7M3B

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very favorable first impression Last night, I photographed a soccer game under the lights. Great, color-filled photos of fact-moving action using my Sony A55-300 lens and an adaptor. Used Youtube to find the proper settings. Suprisingly Aperture priority.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for beginner mirrorless camera! I loved this model of the Alpha series. the only downside is the life expectancy is 200,000 actuations and after 132,676 my shutter completely broke. I'm never aggressive with my gear and take very good care of it but this key component broke while I was working a wedding which obviously is a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Camera! I have used these for years during high school as these were the mules we used for our broadcast and yearbook classes/electives and they are always such a joy and pleasure to use! and now owning my own I can confirm, from shooting and taking pictures just with the stock lens as I say makes me love this camera a little more every day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Camera with good features I have been using my Sony A7III for about a 18 months and it does everything I ask it to except Realtime tracking and 10bit 4:2:2 recording. The full frame sensor and IBIS prove their worth is low light and run and gun shooting. Paired with modern auto focus lenses, it is hard to miss your shot. Paired with an almost limitless number of vintage lenses through adapters, this beast is full of endless combinations and possibilities. The A7III could benefit with the upgraded menu system seen in newer models. My unit decided to stop outputting to HDMI roughly 1 month after the warranty lapsed and is likely to cost 1/3 of the camera cost to repair it! Luckily I do not often use an external monitor since it disables subject tracking. Overall I love the A7III and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the greatest camera of all time! I bought this camera a month ago jumping from Canon and this is by far a game changer! Sony is on a whole different level which makes me even appreciate photography more, I carry my camera wherever I go now and I love how awesome it feels on my hand, this is definitely quality. I am very happy that I got the chance to get myself into Sony without even hesitating, I love my camera and I hope whoever else reads this really gets one because man I love this one so much, it was either this camera or the A7C but this one is awesome especially with the 1.8 50mm it is an absolute beauty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for taking pictures when you travel This is a great camera to have with Sony a 24-240mm zoom lens. It is lite enough to carry for a while and small enough with the lens to put in a "Sony" a6400 bag. The "Z" battery last a lot longer then a "W" battery and you can still carry it away you would take a full frame camera. Using the same operating program as most Sony cameras you can do a lot of things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best All around camera even in 2021 Autofocus accuracy and speed are remarkable and the image quality you get with professional lenses is outstanding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still good after almost 3 years. We bought this camera 3 years ago and have been happy with it. At the time we bought it, nothing compared to it. Now I am confused as to why they don't give it a firmware update for the autofocus so it has the improved autofocus of the less expensive A7C while they share the same sensor and image processor. If they did that simple firmware they would sell so many more of these, but now competitors like Cannon have such better AF that this isn't the value it used be and could be with the improved AF.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Firmware Updates! Love the camera but firmware updates are never in synch with the current version of Mac OS, so I can never update the firmware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honestly best camera for the price I just purchased this camera for Bussines use and i honestly love it it's only been 10 minutes of use and love how its small and has a lot of functionality for its size, i definitely recommend it for those who are starting in the videography industry
Date published: 2021-03-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from A6400 Needed full sensor camera as the cropped A6400 limited wide angle interior photos. The 6400 is a brilliant camera and the A7iii is a great improvement. Videos are almost identical but the A7 can film at 120. So far so good, the kit lens is ok but full frame prime lenses are the best for this. Pics and 4k vids look great on my sony 65inch 4k tv.
