The new Alpha 7C combines Sony’s full-frame image quality, advanced AF capabilities and versatile video shooting functions in a stunningly light and compact design. The new camera features a 24.2MP (approx. effective) 35mm full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS sensor, and BIONZ X™ image processing engine. This combination gives the Alpha 7C high sensitivity, outstanding resolution, 15-stop[i] wide dynamic range and high-speed image data processing.
Measuring only 124.0mm x 71.1mm x 59.7mm (4.9 inches x 2.8 inches x 2.2 inches) and weighing just 509g (18oz)[iii], the Alpha 7C is a similar size and weight to an APS-C camera[iv]“, yet has double the sensor area [v].
Alpha 7C achieves the world’s smallest and lightest compact body[ii] through an upgraded 5-axis in-body stabilisation system, upgraded shutter units and the utilisation of a monocoque construction, which is often used in the bodies of cars and aircrafts. Even in this compact body, the Alpha 7C offers a 5-step[i] stabilisation effect that allows beautiful shots without the need for a tripod.
