Sony A7C Overview
Mixing the quality and advantages of a full-frame sensor with an especially sleek and portable design, the black Sony a7C
offers the hybrid recording capabilities, 24.2MP Exmor R BSI CMOS
sensor, and intelligent AF performance you would expect from an Alpha
camera but with a form factor for all-day, everyday carry.
Exmor R Sensor, BIONZ X Processor, and 4D FOCUS
24.1MP Full-Frame BSI Sensor and Image Processing
Featuring a back-illuminated design, the full-frame 24.2-megapixel Exmor
R CMOS sensor works with the BIONZ X image processor to offer
high-resolution stills and video while minimizing noise and improving
speed. This sensor structure works with a gapless on-chip lens design
and an anti-reflection coating to improve light collection and enhance
detail. Also, the copper wiring layer dramatically improves data
transmission speed for creating 14-bit, high-resolution stills with a
native sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200, which can be further
expanded to ISO 50-204800.
sensor and processor combination enables fast continuous shooting at up
to 10 fps at full resolution, for approximately consecutive JPEGs or
115 consecutive raw files, and with full-time AF/AE when working with
either a mechanical shutter or an electronic shutter.
enables internal UHD 4K video recording with a wide dynamic range using
the full width of the full-frame sensor. The BIONZ X processor also
works in conjunction with a high-speed front-end LSI to realize faster
processing times along with the ability to capture an impressive 15-stop
dynamic range at low sensitivity values.
Covering a majority of the image area, a Fast Hybrid AF system
incorporates 693 phase-detection points along with 425
contrast-detection areas for quick and precise focusing in a variety of
lighting conditions with sensitivity down to -4 EV.
- Lock onto
subjects quickly using Real-time Tracking for AI-based tracking on
moving subjects or touch tracking for manual selection of the subject.
- Real-time Eye AF, suitable for both humans and animals, also ensures critical sharpness when shooting portraits.
Internal recording of UHD 4K videos is possible in multiple frame rates
up to 30 fps and using 2.4x oversampling renders greater detail and
full pixel readout is possible for higher quality imagery with reduced
moiré and aliasing.
- Full HD 1080p recording is also supported
in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both 4K and UHD resolutions utilize
the 100 Mb/s XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0
- The high-speed, 120 fps recording also enables
4x and 5x slow-motion movie recording with the frame rate set to either
30p or 24p.
- In addition to high-resolution internal recording,
uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external
recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 8-bit sampling.
extensive customizable color and gamma controls, the a7C allows users
to adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more:
Use the same S-Log2 Gamma Curve that is found on high end Sony Cinema
cameras that squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video
signal then traditional REC709, for increased post-production
- HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support permits recording
within a wide color gamut for producing HDR-ready content directly from
- S-Log3 is also available for producing a 15+-stop
dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone
regions of the image.
5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization
Despite the sleek stature of the a7C, it features a 5-stop effective
5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for
various types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of
stills and video. This allows users to confidently use any lens, even
adapted lenses, for critical imaging without encountering blur from
For long focal lengths, the system will correct
for pitch and yaw adjustments. Macro and high-magnification imagery, on
the other hand, will benefit from the inclusion of horizontal and
vertical shift compensation. All shooting styles will get usage out of
the roll compensation. All 5 axes of stabilization will function at all
times, even when used with third-party lenses and adapters or lenses
with built-in optical stabilization.
Compact and Versatile Design
Compact and lightweight body design, along with a rangefinder-inspired
layout, make the a7C a sleek and portable camera for everyday shooting.
Compared to other a7-series cameras, the a7C is approximately 20%
smaller and lighter, akin to the size of an APS-C-format camera.
A 0.39"-type XGA OLED electronic viewfinder is featured and has a
2.36m-dot resolution and 0.59x magnification for bright, clear viewing
in high detail.
- Rear 3.0" 921.6k-dot rear LCD features a
side-open vari-angle design along to benefit working from high, low, and
front-facing angles. It's also a touchscreen for intuitive control and
chassis along with a weather-sealed design offers a durable overall
construction for use in a variety of conditions.
large-capacity NP-FZ100 battery offers approximately 740 shots per
charge when working with the rear LCD or 680 shots per charge when
working with the EVF.
- Single SD memory card slot is rated to support UHS-II memory cards for fast transfer speeds.
A USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port offers for fast and reliable tethering
support and also allows the camera to be charged from the host power
source while connected.
- Multi Interface Shoe supports working
with the optional ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adapter Kit,
which provide improved, clear audio recording sound by sending a
digital audio signal to the camera, opposed to an analog signal.
- Both 3.5mm microphone and headphone ports are available for greater audio recording control.
Built-in Wi-Fi enables the a7C to instantly share imagery to mobile
devices for direct sharing online to social networking, via email, and
to cloud storage sites. Support for both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands also
enables wireless tethered shooting support.
- Bluetooth connectivity allows for location data acquisition.
NFC (Near Field Communication) is also supported, which allows for
one-touch connection between the camera and mobile device. Once
connected, the linked mobile device can also display a live view image
on its screen and remotely control the camera's shutter.
