The latest technology achieves stunning processing speed
A new version of the 24.2-megapixel Exmor R™ CMOS sensor, now featuring back-illuminated structure, is combined with the latest BIONZ X™ image processing engine and front-end LSI, and this combination achieves data readout speed that is two times faster and data processing capability that is 1.8 times higher.
Up to 1.5-stop improvement in image quality
Standard ISO range is extended to ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 50-204800 for stills), while Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction technologies maintain image details and cut noise. With highly effective performance in mid-to-high sensitivity ranges, you can shoot at high ISO with no concerns about noise and image deterioration.
Steadier shots with 5-axis stabilisation
The latest high-precision stabilisation uses stabilisation unit and gyro sensors and algorithms to achieve a 5.0-step shutter speed advantage in a system that compensates five types of camera shake with a wide range of lenses, and delivers excellent performance.
14-bit RAW output for rich gradations
For smoother, more natural gradation, the latest BIONZ X image processor and front-end LSI process image signals in 16-bit form. This processor also allows 14-bit RAWdata output, even when in silent or continuous shooting mode
693. Remarkable number of phase-detection AF points
This camera features 693 phase-detection AF pointscovering approx. 93% of image area plus 425 densely positioned contrast-detection AF points to improve focus.
Eye AF revolutionises portraiture
With the α7 III, Eye AF can now be used with AF-C mode, for fast, effective eye detection/tracking performance when shooting stills. The easy maintenance of optimum focus on moving subjects can totally transform your portraiture.
