Sony introduces A7C

Posted on Sep 23, 2020

Sony strengthens its full-frame line-up with the A7C, the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera.

The Sony A7C is a richly featured full-frame camera with 24.2-megapixel resolution, five-axis image stabilisation, 4K video and advanced AI-drive autofocusing with real-time tracking, and it’s all packed into a body that weighs 509g and is a similar size to the brand’s popular APS-C format offerings.

The autofocus system uses a 693-point phase detect system covering 93% of the image area that’s supplemented by 425 contrast detect points. Key benefits include real-time eye AF for humans and animals, real-time tracking, and touch tracking for stills and video shooting. The camera’s native ISO range is 100 to 51,200 with expansion to ISO 50-204,800, and Raws are captured in 14-bit.

Sony has also announced a new zoom lens that would be the perfect partner for the A7C: the FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 standard zoom. This retractable design zoom is dust and moisture resistant, focuses as close as 30cm and its linear motor is fully compatible with the camera’s advanced focus-tracking features.

The A7C is available this October at a price of £1900, while the FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 is expected next January at an estimated price of £450.
