Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera (Body Only)
Sony - 'a7 III'

Sony a7 III

'Gain control of expressive freedom'Sony’s ‘A7 III’ (Body Only) is a full frame, pro-grade mirrorless camera, from Sony’s Alpha/ILCE range. The ‘A7 III’ body sports a newly updated sensor design and in-body stabilisation, ensuring the MK3 is a versatile digital camera, just perfect for both photography and 4K video application. Refined for greater speed and low-light performance, the full-frame 24.2MP ‘Exmor R BSI CMOS’ sensor and ‘BIONZ X’ image processor, come together to result in a staggering 10 fps continual shooting rating and greater autofocus performance, for swifter, sturdier subject tracking.

The ‘A7 III’ body boasts a newly revised Fast Hybrid AF System which uses a combination of 693 phase-detection points and 425 contrast-detection areas for speedier acquirement of focus in a broad range of lighting conditions, whilst also maintaining focus on subjects more effectively. Alongside speed and AF, the improvements in processing also aid in realizing better image clarity and lesser noise throughout the sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200, which can further be expanded to ISO 50-204800.

Video recording capabilities too have also been extended for better quality when shooting UHD 4K video with the full width of the sensor to limit moiré and aliasing. Benefiting both stills and video operation, the a7 III utilizes a 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE sensor-shift image stabilization, which is now effective to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops.

Improved Battery PerformanceIn addition to updates to the imaging system, the A7III (M3 / Mark 3) body design has been revised too to include a 3.0" 922k-dot 'touch' LCD, fully tilt-able to provide support when on high or low angles. Integrated also is a 2.36m-dot Tru-Finder OLED EVF, perfect for bright and clear eye-level monitoring.

Dual SD memory card slots are now featured for greater shooting flexibility (one capable of recording to UHS-II format), and an improved NP-FZ100 battery is also included to achieve up to approximately 710 shots per charge. Suiting the camera's use in trying conditions, the magnesium-alloy chassis and weather-sealing also render the a7 III dust- and moisture-resistant.

24.2MP Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor

Sony a7 III

BIONZ X Image ProcessorThe back-illuminated 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, as well as eliminating the optical low-pass filter, 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. Also, it enables internal UHD 4K video recording with a wide dynamic range using all the sensors width. 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.

The sensor and processor combination in the Sony Alpha A7 Mark 3 body also avails fast continuous shooting at up to 10 fps at full resolution, for up to 177 consecutive frames, and with full-time AF/AE when working with either a mechanical shutter or an electronic shutter. If shooting in live view mode, a continuous shooting rate of up to 8 fps is also possible.

Fast Hybrid AF System


693 phase-detection pointsAn evolved 4D FOCUS system now employs a combination of 693 phase-detection points, which cover approximately 93% of the frame, along with 425 contrast-detection areas for reliable and quick autofocus and subject tracking performance.

This Fast Hybrid AF System achieves twice the focusing speed and more reliable tracking compared to previous a7 models, as well as improved low-light focusing. The use of phase-detection points also enables the use of A-mount lenses via the optional LA-EA3 or LA-EA1 lens mount adapters with full continuous AF/AE tracking compatibility.

5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization


built-in optical stabilizationPacked into the robust ILCE-A7 III camera body is a 5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for five different 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 camera shake.

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.
