SONY ALPHA A7 BODY


The World's First* Full-frame Compact System Camera

Full-frame, palm-sized. Perfection for all.

All the advantages of a 35mm full-frame image sensor and lens interchangeability are now compressed in a body of unprecedented compactness - a dream once considered impossible - without compromising on image quality, shooting comfort, functionality or AF performance. Whether capturing still images or HD movies, you'll enjoy what was previously only possible on larger high-end cameras. The extraordinary α7. Full frame without the full dimensions.

*According to survey conducted by Sony as of October 2013, for non-reflex interchangeable lens digital camera equipped with auto focus function.

Sony Alpha A7

Extraordinarily realistic images.

Sony Alpha A7 with new BIONZ X image sensor for exceptional clarity

NEW BIONZ X Image Processing Engine

The new high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, via unrivaled high-speed processing capabilities. It enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise whether you shoot still images or movies.

24-megapixel Full-frame Sensor

The 35mm full-frame EXMOR image sensor delivers beautiful images form corner to corner and stunning 24.3megapixel resolution that's ideal for large-format prints. You'll enjoy low noise, an extremely wide dynamic range, and amazingly rich and subtle gradations. The α7 reproduces details more faithfully so that every scene looks incredibly real.

High-end features packed in a remarkably compact body.

Customize to fit your Shooting Style

Have a favourite camera function? The α7 allows you to customize 9 buttons so your favourite settings are always quick and easy to get to. With your most frequently used camera functions assigned to the customizable buttons of your choice, you can enjoy speedier, more intuitive operation and maximum convenience.

Shooting comfort and freedom is also enhanced by the tiltable LCD screen. Capture everything from high to low angles easily thanks to the smooth tilting of the LCD and the camera's compact mobility.

Fine-tune Every Scene with Remarkable Accuracy

View every scene clearly in the accurate and bright XGA OLED Tru-finder, with high-end features such as 100% frame coverage and wide viewing angle. Since images in the viewfinder come straight from the image sensor, they faithfully reproduce what you'll see in your recorded images. So, you can fine-tune every detail with remarkable accuracy when composing the shot.

Thanks to the XGA resolution of the viewfinder, you can also magnify the image to simplify manual fine-tuning of the focus whether shooting still images or movies. The Peaking function can also be activated to colourize the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation (level of sensitivity and highlight colour are adjustable).

Dust and Moisture Resistance for Carefree Shooting

Carefree shooting in tough environments is yours thanks to comprehensive dust and moisture resistance measures that prevent water and dust from entering the body. These measures include sealing around the buttons and dials, as well as a protective double-layered structure that tightly interlocks panels and components.

To keep your photos blemish free, an anti-dust mechanism vibrates ultrasonically whenever you switch off the camera to remove any particles adhering to the images sensor. An anti-static coating also helps prevent dust and other particles from adhering to the sensor when changing lenses.

The new accelerated BIONZ X image processing engine also enables area-specific noise reduction and detail reproduction technology to be applied to movies for the very first time, resulting in ultra-fine detail and exceptionally low noise. Features like Picture Effect, clean HDMI output, P/A/S/M modes and your choice of 60p or 24p recording further expand your creative options.

High-speed, high-precision enhanced Fast Hybrid AF.

Enhanced Hybrid AF combines speedy phase-detection AF with highly accurate contrast-detection AF - which features new Spatial Object Detection that accelerates performance by speeding communication with the lens - to achieve among the fastest autofocusing performance of any full-frame camera. When your subject is moving fast, new faster and more accurate AF tracking lets you capture the decisive moment with clarity and precision by shooting at speeds up to 5 frames per second.

NEW AF area setting options

When using the Flexible Spot AF area setting, you can select a small, medium-size of your subject and help ensure the camera focuses on the intended area. Wide and Zone focus area settings are also available.

NEW Eye AF

Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, the face will be sharply focused thanks to extremely accurate eye detection that can prioritize a single pupil.

Lock-on AF for moving subjects

I love the SONY A7. As a former Nikon shooter I am thrilled with the results and images I can achieve with the SONY. I am not knocking Nikon, but I find I am more inspired to shoot now as I am no longer lugging around my D800 and 24-70 lens.

This SONY paired with the Zeiss 35mm f2.8 is a dream to handle and use. It is so light, and I take it everywhere.

It is such a thrill to obtain that amazing Full-frame image quality and video with having a sore neck and back at the end of the day.

The EVF is amazing! I love that I can see what my image will look like as I make adjustments to f-stop or shutter or ISO. It helps me to obtain much better shots!

I could go on and on but let me say if you are thinking about this camera, buy it!!

You will not be dissapointed!

  • By: Chris

Whether it's the low-noise, the three control dials or the wide EV, this camera produces incredible results, great contrast and a true photographic experience. To date, this is the most ideal choice for a manual film shooter looking to move into the digital realm. The full frame sensor and mirrorless body allow for virtually all legacy glass to be adapted, and the manual assist options make this a truly awesome camera.
