The Sony A7C Body - Black brings full-frame mirrorless performance to an APS-C crop format size body reminiscent of the A6000 series. It is the world's smallest and lightest full-frame body to date with a refined full-frame 24.2MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor pair realizing an impressive 10 fps continuous shooting rate and excellent low-light performance in a compact camera body with a standard ISO range of 100-51200.

A fast Hybrid AF System employing a combination of 693 phase-detection points and 425 contrast-detection area ensures accurate autofocus performance for faster, more reliable subject tracking along with wide frame coverage and quicker acquirement of focus in a variety of lighting conditions.

Video recording on the Sony A7C is supported by the inclusion of both a 3.5mm headphone jack and a 3.5mm microphone input on the camera body for external microphones. The A7C is capable of recording UHD 4K video using full-pixel readout and 6k oversampling of the full-frame sensor to minimize moiré and aliasing. Additionally, benefitting both stills and video operation, the A7C utilizes a 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE sensor-shift image stabilization, which is effective to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops.

Beyond the full-frame imaging system, the A7C compact body design also includes a rear 3.0" 922k-dot touchscreen LCD, which has a tilting design to better support working from high and low angles. A 2.36m-dot Tru-Finder OLED EVF is also featured for bright and clear eye-level monitoring. The A7C features a single SD memory card supporting UHS-I/II cards and the larger NP-FZ100 battery is also employed to achieve up to approximately 740 shots per charge (LCD monitor) or up to 220 minutes of recording time in XAVC S HD continuously (viewfinder). Suiting the camera's use in trying conditions, the magnesium-alloy chassis and weather-sealing also render the A7C dust- and moisture-resistant.

Full-Frame Performance in an APS-C Size Camera Body

The new Sony A7C camera delivers spectacular full-frame image quality in a camera body not much bigger than that of an APS-C crop format camera like the popular A6600. This true engineering feat from Sony includes brand new mechanical components, plus layout and structural enhancements. Making enhanced image depth, dynamic range and detail possible in a camera approximately 19% smaller in volume and 22% lighter than the A7 mark III. It is all you'd expect from a full-frame camera in one of the smallest full-frame camera bodies to date.

24.2 Megapixels Exmor R Full Frame CMOS Sensor

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 gapless on-chip lens design and an anti-reflection coating to enhance detail and improve light collection with a native sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200

BIONZ X Processor supporting up to 10 Frames Per Second

State-of-the-art AF and speedy continuous shooting up to 10 fps provided by A7C's BIONZ X processor help ensure you don't miss that important split-second shot.

  • AI-based Real-time Tracking
  • Real-time Eye AF for humans (movies/stills) and animals (stills)
  • Activate Real-time Tracking anytime, with AF-ON button

5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE

Handheld on-the-go operation is easy the Sony A7C, it's 5-axis in-body images stabilisation unit keeps your footage steady and blur-free whether you're shooting movies or stills.

Flexible Movie-making Powers

Sony A7C is not only an extremely compact full-frame camera for stills but also a hybrid shooters dream camera with full-pixel readout and 6K oversampled 4K UHD video recording, including S-log2/3 & HLG picture profiles, slow-motion recording and adjustable AF sensitivity/transition speed for focus pulls. The A7C also supports both headphone output and external audio for via 3.5mm input jack, allowing you to both monitor your audio recordings and use directional microphones with the A7C. Alternatively, experience cable-free vlogging by attaching an optional grip and mic combination from Sony using the Multi Interface Shoe which supports Digital Audio. To top it off, the A7C also supports vertical video format making it the perfect companion for social media content creation.

  • Adjustable AF sensitivity and AF transition speed control
  • S-log2/3 and HLG Picture Profiles
  • Slow and Quick motion recording
  • 4K (QFHD: 3840x2160) video recording using full-pixel readout and 6k oversampling minimizing moiré, aliasing and improving detail rendition
  • Microphone Input & Headphone Output

Robust and Reliable Design

A robust feature set is matched by robust quality. The A7C rests on Sony's reliable design experience and uses a magnesium monocoque structure that has been sealed against dust and moisture* and a side-opening LCD monitor offers flexible operation with 176° horizontal and 270° vertical rotation. A Sony NP-FZ100 battery provides the Sony A7C with a CIPA battery life equivalent to around 740 pictures using the LCD monitor or around 220 minutes of video recording in XAVC S while using the viewfinder.

  • Side-opening LCD monitor for flexible operation
  • Intuitive touch operation and display
  • Magnesium alloy monocoque structure
  • Sealed against dust and moisture*

*Not guaranteed to be 100% dust- and moisture-proof.
