Sony A7C Digital Camera Body - Black
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 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.
The 24.2MPExmor 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.
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
Expand your movie-making options
Achieve truly artistic movie-making with the superb control, image quality and dimensionality of full-frame.
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.
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.
Super-accurate AF finds the subject quickly and keeps it in steady focus
The α7C takes advantage of the same AF advancements as our acclaimed α9, with unique 4D FOCUS for fast subject acquisition and steadfast tracking over a wide area. A total of 693 phase-detection AF points cover approx. 93% of the image area.
Sony's smart AI-based Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF
Reliable subject tracking translates into more successful portraits. As with previous models, you can aim at the subject and half-press the preconfigured shutter button to start Real-time Eye AF. The α7C also has a new feature that lets you press the AF-ON button to activate Real-time Tracking even when not in AF-C mode, allowing you to use Real-time Tracking immediately. Focus is maintained even when the face is partially obstructed or when the subject is wearing glasses.
Reliable handheld still shots and movies
Zoom in, grab close-ups and capture night scenes with greater clarity
The α7C's optical 5-axis image stabilisation unit compensates for five types of camera shake with no loss of image quality, even when shooting without a gimbal or when shooting in the dark. These are [1, 2] angular shake (pitch and yaw) that tends to occur with a telephoto lens, [3, 4] shift shake (X and Y axes), noticeable as magnification increases, and  rotational shake (roll on Z axis), which affects nighttime shots and video.
