The Alpha 7C 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. Introducing the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera1with 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, acompact 5-axis in-body image stabilization unit and a monocoque magnesium alloy construction, the Alpha 7C redefines the norms of what a full-frame camera can be.Furthermore, the Alpha 7C with a FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 kit lens becomes the world’s smallest and lightest1full-frame camera and lens system.
The Alpha 7C features a 35mm full-frame 24.2MP2back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor with front-end LSI and an updated BIONZ X™ processing-engine in the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera. It achieveshigh sensitivity and low-noise with an impressive ISO range of ISO 50 –2048006and massive 15-stop5dynamic 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, no pixel binning and HDR4
The Alpha 7Cis exceptionally capable as a video camera, offering 4K3(3840×2160 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 approx. 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. Both S-Log2 and S-Log3 are available for increased color grading flexibility, while HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)4is included to support an Instant HDR (High Dynamic Range) workflow. The Alpha 7C can also record Full HD at 120 fps4at up to 100 Mbps, allowing footage to be reviewed and eventually edited into 4x or 5x slow motion18video files in Full HD resolution.
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. This fast hybrid AF system can handle a huge volume of data at high speed, snapping rapidly into focus and takes full advantage of Sony’s acclaimed AI technology with Realtime AF Tracking and Realtime Eye AF for both stills and movie. It even includes Realtime Eye AF for animals.
Compact 5-axis in-body image stabilization
A newly developed 5-axis in-body image stabilization unit has achieved a substantial size reduction yet maintains an effective 5-step9stabilization. Camera shake is detected and effectively compensated for in 5 axes: angular shake (pitch/yaw) that has the biggest impact on image quality and tends to increase at longer focal lengths, X/Y shift that is most apparent in high magnification macro shots, and rotational shake (roll) that can ruin night shots and movies. The 5-axis in-body image 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.
Body Design and Connectivity
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 andseveral other camera settings. This continuous live view shooting can be set in 3 stages to match a variety of subjects: 8 fps, 6 fps and 4 fps.
Along with a revision of the body’s internal structure and materials, a lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy monocoque design -as used for the bodies of cars and aircraft -is used for the construction of the Alpha 7C. This has achieved size and weight reduction, while increasing the overall strength of the camera body. Sealing is provided throughout the body to minimize dust and moisture ingress14, allowing it to function reliably in challenging environments. Maximum dust and moisture resistance12is maintained at lens and flash unit joints too, providing excellent system reliability.
To capture those fleeting and definitive moments, the Alpha 7C is equipped with a fast shutter mechanism and refined image processing system that allows it to capture full 24.2MP2images at up to 10 fps10with continuous and accurate AF/AE (autofocus and auto exposure) tracking. Capture up to 223 JPEG (Fine L) images, 115 compressed RAW images or 45 uncompressed RAW images in a single continuous burst. This high speed 10 fps mode is available with either amechanical shutter or an electronic shutter for completely silent11shooting.
Despite the compact body, the high-capacity NP-FZ100 battery provides enough power to capture up to an industry-leading1740 images12on a full charge when using the LCD monitor, or 68012when using the viewfinderand continuous video recording up to 220 min. (LCD)12and 215 min. (VF)12. Power can be supplied through a USB Type-C® connector, allowing external power sources like mobile batteries to extend recording time.A battery must be installed in the camera when supplying USB power and may still drain even if USB power is supplied, depending on the adapter used and camera operating conditions.
The camera’s Multi Interface Shoe allows for MI shoe flash and microphones accessories to be attached. It features a built-in Digital Audio Interface for superb audio quality that supports Sony’s optional ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone and XLR-K3M XLR Adaptor Kit with the ability to transfer digital audio directly to the MI shoe for exceptionally high sound recording quality. Like other MI shoe microphone accessories, no cables or batteries are required, providing unrestrained freedom for α system moviemaking.The new optional HVL-F28RM flash offers a compactand robust solution for flash photography including radio frequency control of additional flashes.
Inherited from Sony’s professional large-format FX9 camcorder and Alpha 7S III, [AF Transition Speed] and [AF Subject Shift Sensitivity] parameters allow more detailed AF control. [AF Transition Speed] provides 7 speed settings and is ideal for creating rack focus effects to effectively guide the viewers’ eye. [AF Subject Shift Sensitivity] provides 5 sensitivity settings that determine how “sticky” AF will be (how easily AF will switch to another subject or how tenaciously it will stay with the locked-on subject). Both these parameters can be assigned to custom keys for fast access while shooting.
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 GHz or 5 GHz Wi-Fi21provides the versatility, reliability, and speed needed to transfer image data to the computer while shooting images in continuous mode. With the camera and computer connected using Sony’s Imaging Edge “Remote” software application (Ver. 2.0 or later), it is easier than ever to shoot, change camera settings, and transfer and store still images. In addition to wirelessly connecting the camera directly to the computer, the connection can be made via a wireless access point for compatibility with a variety of network environments.
In addition to high speed Wi-Fi® and wireless PC connectivity15, the Alpha 7C 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.
