Express yourself to the fullest degree - 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.
Full-frame imaging in a compact body - Superior light collection means high-quality, low-noise images
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.
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.
Compact size, easy operation
The α7C 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 stabilization 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.
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.
Reliable handheld still shots and movies - Zoom in, grab close-ups, and capture night scenes with greater clarity
The α7C's optical five-axis image stabilization unit compensates for five types of camera shake with no loss of image quality, even when shooting without a gimbal or shooting in the dark. These are angular shake (pitch and yaw) that tends to occur with a telephoto lens, shift shake (X and Y axes), noticeable as magnification increases, and rotational shake (roll on Z axis), which affects nighttime shots and video.
Expand your creativity with special effects
Fine-tune AF Subject Shift Sensitivity to maintain steady focus or allow focus shift
AF sensitivity is adjustable for situations with multiple subjects in motion. Levels range from "1. Persistent" to maintain stable focus on the original subject, to "5. Sensitive" to switch easily to other subjects.
Use AF Transition Speed to control how fast the focus shifts
When autofocus does shift from one subject to another, you can specify the speed of the transition. Seven levels are available, from smooth, leisurely transitions to fast shifts in focus.
Slow-motion and fast-motion shooting - In-camera recording up to 5x slower or 60x faster than real time
Varying the pace of footage is an extra creative element you can add to movies, and the α7C's S&Q mode makes it easy. It supports high-speed full HD recording at 120fps, and both slow-motion and fast-motion effects are possible in camera, with frame rates ranging from 1–120fps . The resulting footage is up to 5x slower or 60x faster than real-time action.
Easy visual effects for movies
Picture Effect, Creative Style, and Picture Profile features are a simple way to widen your creative expression when shooting movies. They provide a wide variety of visual effects and settings, from entry-level to professional. Picture Effect and Creative Style let you leave it to the camera, so there's no need for post-production grading.
Imaging Edge Mobile™ app and Movie Edit add-on
for more convenient movie-making
Using the α7C's built-in Wi-Fi®, shutter release and movie recording can be controlled from a smartphone or tablet, and image data can be transferred wirelessly. The Movie Edit add-on corrects camera shake after shooting.
