Capture the peaks of more decisive moments with the α7 III from Sony packing newly developed back-illuminated full-frame CMOS sensor and other advanced imaging innovations, high-speed response, ease of
operation, and reliable durability that are ready for various shooting needs. With outstanding imaging capability and high-speed performance contained in a compact body, the α7 III gives you the power, precision and flexibility to capture once-in-a-lifetime moments just as you like. A newly developed back-illuminated image sensor and evolved image processing system fulfill various shooting needs with high-quality imaging capabilities that you would expect only of a full-frame camera. A new version of the 24.2-megapixel5 Exmor R CMOS sensor, now featuring back-illuminated structure, is combined with the latest Bionz X image processing engine and front-end LSI, and this combination achieves data readout speed that is two times faster and data processing capability that is 1.8 times higher. AF performance is improved using the same AF advancements as in the α9 and applying it optimally, so once the α7 III captures such unpredictably moving subjects as dancers, boxers, and wild animals in action, it won’t easily let them go. With the α7 III, Eye AF can now be used with AF-C mode, for fast, effective eye detection/tracking performance when shooting stills. The easy maintenance of optimum focus on moving subjects can totally transform your portraiture. The α7 III can shoot in a continuous burst at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking and up to 8 fps burst shooting when shooting with live-view mode. The camera also supports silent shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking at maximum resolution. As well as new capability of recording stunning 4K movies through 2.4-times higher oversampling, the camera features a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile, supporting instant HDR workflow. The α7 III’s operability is enhanced by fast control during shooting, dazzlingly clear views through the Tru-Finder, versatile connectivity, extended shooting endurance from various power sources, plus high durability and resistance to wet and dusty conditions.
