Sony Alpha a7C Full-Frame Compact Mirrorless Camera with FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 Lens (Black)

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. Furthermore, the Alpha a7C with a FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 kit lens becomes the world's smallest and lightest full-frame camera and lens system.

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.

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.

Wireless Tethering

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.

Sony FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 Lens

The FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 offers smallest and lightest form factor in a standard zoom lens. Optimal arrangement of the three aspherical lens elements effectively suppresses aberrations throughout the zoom range and realizes high resolution from corner to corner. A minimum focus distance of 0.99 foot (wide-angle) to 1.48 feet (telephoto) delivers close-up capability, making it perfect for everyday use or vlogging with a gimbal or grip. From everyday shooting to scenery, portraits and travel, it’s the ideal lens for any type of on-the-go shooting in a wide variety of environments.

Sony FE 20mm f/1.8 G Full-Frame Large-Aperture Ultra-Wide Angle G Lens

This new addition to Sony’s Prime G Lenses is an ultra-wide 20mm that gives to edge-to-edge sharpness with a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture. The XD (Extreme Dynamic) Linear focus motors allow for smooth and quick focusing. It optical design employs two AA (Advanced Aspherical) elements and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that combine to accurately reproduce point light sources with high contrast. As a result you get crisp, clear images with minimal sagittal flaring of challenging subjects such as night scenes and starry skies. The lens’ lightweight design makes it ideal for videographers and vloggers, and perfectly suits a wide variety of scenarios like landscape, street, starry-nights, and environmental portraits. A special Nano Anti-reflective coating on lens elements suppresses reflections, flare and ghosting, while the fluorine coating on the front lens element repels water, oil, and other contaminants for sharp, clear images.

30mm Equivalent on APS-C Bodies

This lens weighs just 0.82 pounds and measures in at only 2.89 x 3.33 inches. It’s small size and lightweight design enhance mobility when used with compact E-mount Full-frame or APS-C camera bodies and is ideal for use on gimbals or accessory grips.

Beautiful, Natural-Looking Bokeh

The lens’ maximum f/1.8 aperture maintains exposure and depth of field, allowing you to isolate your subject from the foreground and background with amazing light gathering capabilities when shooting wide open. When changing your aperture to defocus the background, the areas out of the focal plane appear blurred. As expected from a G Lens, the Sony FE 20mm f/1.8 G lens delivers a smooth, natural-looking bokeh. A large f/1.8 aperture combined together with a 9-blade circular aperture mechanism and precise control over spherical aberration characteristics help achieve an amazing defocused background quality.

Advanced Optical Performance

At the heart, the Sony 20mm Prime G Lens uses two AA (Advanced Aspherical) elements and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements. The Advanced Aspherical) elements help achieve high corner-to-corner resolution even with the narrow depth-of-field produced at the lens’s maximum f/1.8 aperture. On the other hand, the three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements virtually remove axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration to achieve significantly reduced flare and ghosting. This gives you high resolution images with maximum bokeh featuring precisely rendered edges with no fringing or unnatural coloration.

XD Linear Motors for Fast, Precise, Quiet Focusing

The FE 20mm f/1.8 G lens incorporates a precision internal focus mechanism consisting of two XD (extreme dynamic) Linear Motors that help deliver high-speed, smooth autofocusing. With new control algorithms, it is possible to smoothly drive the lens’s focus group achieving silent, low-vibration and continuous autofocus in both still and video modes.

Instant Auto/Manual Focus Selection

An AF/MF switch on the side of the lens lets you quickly switch between auto and manual focus modes for a faster and easier operation. Linear Response MF (manual focus) ensures that the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle control when focusing manually.

Aperture Ring with Switchable Click Stops

In addition to providing the fast, hands-on response required for still and videos, the Sony FE 20mm f/1.8 G lens’s aperture ring includes an on/off switch for its click stops. You can switch it on for tactile feedback when shooting stills or switch it off for silent control when shooting movies. The combination of quiet XD Linear Motors and the quiet operation available when the click stops are switched off is great for smooth, seamless aperture control when shooting movies or capturing events where noise must be minimized.

Sony Alpha a7C Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera (Black) Bundle with FE 28-60mm and 20mm f/1.8 G Lens SKU: ILCE7CLB-KT1

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Camera for Your Lifestyle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Best Camera for Your Lifestyle This is the best camera for recording your lifestyle and express yourself. Sony Alpha 7C is the most compact full-frame mirrorless available in the market. Its lightness and well-balanced body help you carry it wherever you go without any second thought. Its uncompromising capability and quality let you obtain the highest quality images and videos anywhere and at any moment. I would recommend this camera for people who want to upgrade from crop body, serious about recording your lifestyle, content creator, professionals who need a second body. Swivel screen This is the second Sony full-frame camera with an articulating screen. Another one that has this screen costs much more. It changes the game in the sense that you have much more freedom in your shot angle and also monitor yourself for the self-shot without any other accessories. Sony Auto Focus Tracking Autofocus and Video focus tracking are out of this world. You will not sacrifice shots that are out of the focus. Especially, Auto tracking enabled in the video makes this camera best for the Vlog. The enhancement on the screen brightness is an upgrade from a7m3. Some suggest viewfinder is a downgrade, but I had no problem with it. I also like how detail you can adjust focus transition speed to make it more cinematic. I wanted it to have an updated Sony menu system, but it has the previous generation touch menu system with a menu button in a weird location. Video reliability This is also a great camera for video recording with unlimited video recording minutes. You can make a professional-quality video for any type of conference or lecture. I see this can be even a great sub-camera for the professionals to have that reliable second and third view of the recording. New Compact bundle Lens Sony created a new FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 compact lens to go in hand with Sony A7C. I took several shots with this lens and it was a pleasant surprise. I usually do not have any high hopes for the bundled lens and especially the small lens. However, this produces great quality images. The compact lens size and lightness draw you to use it more often than you think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact full-frame and full-featured travel camera [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sony's Alpha series is highly regarded by both professionals and enthusiasts. The 7C is a wonderful new entry in its product portfolio targeted towards vloggers, travel enthusiasts, influencers, or even professionals who would like to have an additional camera handy. It ticks many important boxes - light and well made, 4k video, compact mirrorless, full-frame, enough controls for the serious photographer, and compatibility with Sony's wide selection of E-mount lenses. External microphone and lights can be easily added, and a good quality company tripod should be fine. The form-factor on this is ideal for travel. I am still trying this out, but so far have been very happy with stills and video. This will definitely be my go-to outdoors and travel camera (when travel resumes). Highly recommended. Update 1 - I took the camera on a couple of local trips and love how easy it is to carry around. This is definitely much easier to carry around, both in dimensions and weight, compared to other DSLRs. I tend to shoot more because of this. You still have the full-frame capabilities capturing excellent photos and videos. The a7c is perfectly suited for travel, hiking, and vlogging with great autofocus and continuous eye tracking. The kit lens (28-60) does an adequate job with portrait stills and bokeh shots when traveling light, but thanks to Sony's extensive range of high-quality E-mount lenses I have also paired it with some Sony G Master series lenses for even better photo results. The audio capture is good and it's easy to add an external travel mic for pro results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small frame BIG power [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve always wanted to jump on the Sony mirrorless hype train, but never had the opportunity to. On top of the size, the “silver” is a nice touch and I recommend that colorway to everyone in the market for it as it definitely adds a little flair to the camera to make it stick out from the usual all black camera bodies. The flip screen is a definite nice touch. I do wish that it had been touch screen, but the full motion is a nice touch. Definitely will help with selfies and vlogging if you do that. For me it is nice to be able to rotate and see what I’m shooting in weird angles. Speaking of seeing what you’re shooting, the Sony camera app allows you to see the EVF on your camera screen and capture as well! The kit lens is small and compact. Overall I don’t find much use for it as I hoped because I rarely shoot video or vlog, but if you do any of those, it is a definite must. It’s so compact and with it being 28mm on the wide end, you can get plenty of frame in your videos. The Auto-Focus is AMAZING. I’ve had plenty of shots messed up with other cameras because the Auto-Focus was off or too slow. Sony definitely has been the leader in the game and I’m happy to know the hype is well served. The A7C also has the newish Eye-AF feature. I haven’t had too much experience using it, but from my initial tests it is great and combined with the AF-C and zone focusing it is quick to switch and switch back to Eye-AF. Definitely an amazing feature. Overall this camera is great. If you’re looking for a small compact camera for vlogging/streaming with a flip screen, this is it. Or if you’re like me and just want a compact camera for all your travels (next year when covid is over), this is definitely it. Where previously I would have to think twice about taking my camera with me, this Sony A7C is a no brainer. It literally fits in my jacket pocket and is a take everywhere type of camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A full frame beauty hidden in a compact body [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] There is a lot to be said about this camera. It has the full-frame goodness incorporated in the form factor of an Aps-c body. That means you are more likely to carry it with you everywhere, especially when traveling. Being a full-frame you have the ability to purchase some really nice Sony lenses, of course, some of them are really big and would make this not as compact. The viewfinder is just not pleasant to use. A compromise when trying to trim everything down. I love the articulating touch screen! If you want to make a 4K video on Youtube this is perfect. If you want to vlog on the go then you might prefer a wider lens but that would make the setup a bit heavier and clunkier. It can be done though. The menu screen does not have touch functionality. When closed you can have the screen facing inwards so as to keep it safe. The menu system is the older version, who knows if they will update to Sony’s newest version. It is missing a couple of dials and buttons: No joystick and most of the buttons will have to be used with your right thumb. It only has 1 SD card slot, a bit of a bummer if you wanted to use it as your main wedding or gig camera. Great autofocus and they were able to pack-in IBIS into the body, impressive for the size. This is really where I was floored, the camera helps you not miss that shot or keeps it from being blurry. Love that! Battery life is awesome. You get weather sealing, just make sure the lenses you purchase have that feature as well. I easily transferred files over to my smartphone via wifi/Bluetooth that the camera offers. Overall, this is a very nice camera for traveling or if you really want and need the articulating touch screen. You are going to have to spend a premium for that though. You are paying for the image quality of a full-frame sensor and the compact size versatility that the other Sony models don't offer. After seeing the images this camera produces, even the JPEGS, you will probably fall in love with it as I did. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and mighty! Amazing full frame camera [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wow I feel like I am emerging from the Stone Age! This camera has amazing features and makes taking amazing shots and videos a breeze. I had heard a lot about the Sony mirrorless cameras but hadn’t had a chance to try one out but with the release of the A7c it was the perfect balance of price and features that I had to go for it! The real time tracking autofocus system is truly amazing and very fast allowing for fast capture of clear shots. I also really liked the 4K video recording and the inputs for a mic and headphones allowing clean audio recording with the video. This would be a great camera for anybody looking to take amazing photos and videos on the go. The size is great for travel it is almost pocketable and the kit lens has a great range. The collapsable zoom lens helped keep the form factor small and balanced with the size of the camera. I loved the silver and black color scheme for its retro feel but with modern technology. Coming from a APS-C camera, the amount of details and the dynamic range that is captured by this full frame is amazing. I didn’t think it would be that big of a difference but I can really tell the difference it image quality between this full frame and my old APS-C. The bokeh is mind blowing! No portrait mode on a phone can compete, the software makes it very easy to get studio quality results and always gets the subject in focus with the right amount of background blur. I would highly recommend it for any beginner photographer or somebody who travels a lot and wants something that can be tossed into and bag or large jacket pocket. You really can’t beat the size of this camera especially with a full frame lens, it’s almost the same size as the old digital point and shoots we all used to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Level up [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This camera is absolutely amazing. I have been so reluctant to get into Real professional cameras but this is absolutely game changing. The camera is effortless to use. I did not have any trouble setting it up or connecting to any of my devices. The pictures are so crisp and bright. They are actually juicy. That is how people have described the pictures to me. I think this camera is going to enhance my pictures greatly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smallest and lightest Full-frame camera I owned [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was lucky to receive as early Christmas gift the A7c basic kit with the FE f/4-5.6 / 28-60mm lens. I previously owned a Sony a230, that I switched for a "semi-pro" compact camera from an other brand. First of all, I have to admit, I am highly satisfied with this impressively "tiny" full frame camera. What you have to know before buying: It's a E-mount and FE lens are highly recommended (and pretty expensive but worth every penny you invest in it). If you are a vlogger or that photo is your hobby, but you always felt that DSLR are too big or too heavy, go for this piece of mirrorless art. I am very impressed how fast I got used to the new options, and how easy taking decent picture was. The bokeh with the basic lens is pretty ok and I like how the auto mode was very fast and reliable. I do feel that it's a pretty premium entry camera for beginners who wants to make a serious (or not so serious) hobby out of this camera. I use it essentially for my Instagram content or for some other personal/professional projects too. I do miss something from it. Due to its size, one of the control dial is missing. I like to have one on the front of the camera. My lens selection is the following (hobby, dog lover and astrophoto lovers with the basic kit lens set): The light telephoto option - Sony 70-300 mm, f/4.5-5.6 Astro photo and wide angle: Sony 24 mm, f/1.4 I am now feeling that I have to invest in new lenses especially for astrophoto. I will update the review after the next hiking session I will do with my new Sony 24mm f/1.4 .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy point and shoot [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This camera is very basic and I like that! The specs are easy to use. I have only had the camera for two weeks and haven’t had tons of time with it yet, but so far everything is as advertised. The Compact size is perfect for traveling and feels great in the hands. The image is wonderful. The video quality is incredible and the stabilization is really amazing. I really enjoy the simplicity of the options while still having extreme control over everything if wanted and when needed. The only complaint so far is the screen. It is great that it can turn a full 180 but I wish it could tilt when sitting on the back of the camera and when folded out, the image will flip with just the slightest turn when flipped in “selfie” mode. But these are minor compared to the excellent quality and function of the entire camera. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice size, great for blogging [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Sony Alpha 7C takes great crisp clear photos & video. I love the smaller size. It makes it so much easier for making videos. The smaller size also makes it easier to use on smaller tripods like I use for my unboxing videos, so I can get close up. Since it is also lighter it will make it easier to use on a hand held device for my outdoor videos opposed to the large DSLR I have tried to use. I am really impressed with the quality and ease of use of this Sony Alpha 7C. I am also in love with being able to change out the lenses, that makes it so versatile for the different types of videos that I make. Anything from content creating to my own personal family fun videos, cooking videos and blogging. It is a great little camera and very versatile. I can't wait to get a couple more lenses and really do more with it. I think the Sony Alpha 7C is going to make a great travel camera as well. It will be easier to pack and carry in my bag instead of having to carry an extra bag with my larger heavy DSLR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Full-Frame Entry Level Camera Around [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] For years I have been hesitant on joining the full-frame camera team because most full-frame's are so expensive! But then Sony released this bad boy, the Alpha 7C, and I have finally been able to experience a whole new world. I am a video content creator and the a7C has been life changing in just the few short weeks I used it. First, it's so easy to use. I was previously using a dslr camera for videos and I'm actually having an easier time with the settings on this camera. Everything you need is clearly on display and easy to access. Next, the focus on this compact is killer! So fast and you can control it through a variety of ways (ie. auto-focus, manual, face-priority, etc.). Quality you would expect from a bigger and more expensive device. You can easily produce stunning videos and images with the kit lens included. As a creator that will mainly be using the a7C for video, the flip-out screen is the real showstopper. It can easily be flipped and rotated to any way you need to get the perfect shot. Want to record an object? Check. Want to record yourself? Check. Want to record an overhead shot? Check. Want to record your adorable pet around the corner without waking them up from their fourth quarantine nap of the day? Check! The flip-out screen was what sold me to this camera. I won't ever be able to go back to using a camera without a flip-out screen. Also, the ability to record in 4K without a time limit.. bravo Sony!! There have been so many times where I've had to reshoot segments of videos because I ran over the usual 30 minute time limit on other cameras. But this little beast keeps recording until my memory card is full. A greatly welcomed addition for vloggers and unboxing creators. Overall the Sony Alpha 7C is a great camera for those that want to see what full-frame cameras are capable of and/or want to up their content creation game without breaking the bank. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for its design! Bought this not too long ago and I was a Sony Alpha 7R II user. I believe Sony's design vision came out great. I thought back then that A7r2 will be my camera for a while but as I grow as a photographer, I realized that the weight and the AF system are not my taste anymore. I couldn't really go to APS-C because, the 35mm sensor size simply gives honor to film sizes and I respect that. Imagine, a (relatively) smaller form factor, with full-frame image size capability, enough superb resolution (24MP) for current viewing/display technology (and possibly in the coming years later) and competitive color science. All packed in A7C. Not to mention, great battery life. The price could've been cheaper, for all the compromises done. In note of color science, I shoot RAW so it is irrelevant to me. If I want to color, I'll work the image in post processing. I'd say Sony Alpha 7C is Excellent for its design!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size, color, power... but needs better app I've been waiting for this camera forever. I was a loyal Lumix user and loved the rangefinder look/ergonomics of the GX series (I like a left justified eyepiece). This camera has all that and more. Incredible quality, speed, auto focus... would love better custom buttons and a front dial but aside from that, perfect. As for the app that goes with it, Sony should really step it up. It is an awfully unusable remote.
