The World's Smallest & Lightest Full-Frame Interchangeable lens Camera*

Full-frame, palm-sized. Reality Realized.

Sony transforms the world of full-frame photography with the introduction of its amazing new α7R - The world's smallest and lightest 35mm full-frame interchangeable-lens camera with the highest image quality in the history of the α lineup. This unprecedented combination of revolutionary compactness and remarkably realistic image quality with supremely natural detail will delight photographers and cinematographers seeking the best of all worlds.

*Among interchangeable-lens cameras equipped with a 35mm full-frame (equivalent) image sensor (as of October 16, 2013) according to Sony's internal survey.

Sony Alpha A7R

The highest resolution and image quality in α history.

Through cutting-edge proprietary technology, including a 35mm full-frame EXMOR image sensor and new BIONZ X image processing engine, Sony realized resolution and image quality that bring photography a step closer to faithfully capturing reality. Discover photos and moves with more realistic details than ever before - in a camera of revolutionary dimensions that breaks all previous standards.

NEW BIONZ X Image Processing Engine

Sony Alpha A7R with new BIONZ X image sensor for exceptional clarity

The new high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine faithfully 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.

36-megapixel Full-frame Sensor and No Optical low-pass Filter

The newly developed 36.4-megapixel 35mm full-frame EXMOR CMOS sensor delivers unbelievably high resolution in combination with high sensitivity and extremely low noise. Sony removed the optical low-pass filter to bring out the full potential of the sensor and lens, thus achieving an enhanced sense of clarity with supremely realistic details to the very edges of your photos. An AR coating also reduces flare and ghosting.

High-end features packed in a remarkably compact body.

Customize to fit your Shooting Style

Have a favourite camera function? The α7R 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

Sony Alpha A7R with XGA OLED Tru-finder for more faithful reproduction of what is being recorded in your images

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.

Advanced Sony moviemaking features in a lightweight camera.

Never before have such powerful moviemaking capabilities been available in a camera this small. The unprecedented combination of mobility and functionality unleashes exciting moviemaking possibilities. By taking full advantage of the 35mm full-frame sensor, audio production features and flexible lens interchangeability, you can create movies of breathtaking visual sound and quality with exquisite background blur, remarkably clear details, and the sensitivity to bring dark scenes to vibrant life. 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 Fast Intelligent AF.

Fast Intelligent AF provides extremely fast AF performance despite the employment of a full-frame sensor. In fact, it achieves top-level AF speed in the full-frame category through the support of various advances including the new lightening-fast BIONZ X, high-speed full-frame image sensor output, and the newly developed Spatial Object Detection that accelerates performance by speeding communication with the lens.

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.


Sony Alpha A7R with 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

It's easy to keep moving subjects in focus with Lock-on AF. It adjusts target frame size based on subject characteristics and makes use of a wide AF area to ensure usage of the optional AF point for smooth, stable autofocusing.

  • Spectacular Images form a 36MP Sensor

  • January 22, 2014
  • By: Doug M

Short Review: the 36 MP sensor A7R with the Zeiss 55mm F1.8 lens produces spectacular images like nothing I?ve seen from a 24MP sensor. The raw files look great straight out of the camera and require little post processing. Long Review: I?ve been using this camera mainly with the Zeiss FE mount 55mm F1.8 lens and battery grip. Initially I used it without grip with the LA-EA4 adapter and an A mount Zeiss 16-35mm F2.8. The first images with the 16-35/2.8 were great- better than using that lens on a 24MP body. But they weren?t hugely better. This reinforced my original skepticism about the usefulness of a 36 MP sensor (some people feel 24 MP is more than enough). Then I received the 55/1.8 and mounted it on the A7R. WOW! This was my reaction after viewing the first images straight from the camera. The look is like nothing you'll see from lower resolution sensors. There's a fluidity to the images that renders them exceedingly pleasing. When you view them at 100% this pleasing, fluid quality remains. And this is for raw files imported into Lightroom with no post processing done. I subsequently found that these images need less adjustment than those from 24MP sensors. You have to be particularly careful with capture sharpening. I thought I was seeing some ?orange-peel? granulation along edges at 200% It turned out to be the result of oversharpening. The amount I would normally use in Lightroom on a 24MP raw file was way too much for this sensor?s files. I would have expected that the low light performance to be poorer than a similar sized sensor with lower pixel count. But in fact, I'd say the low light performance of this A7R is about a stop better than my A99. The contrast based autofocus (AF) seems similar to Sony?s other recent alpha bodies. It hunts one cycle (i.e. overshoots, then comes back). The phase based AF (built into the LA-EA4) adapter is a little bit snappier than the system in the A99. The manual focussing aids are superb: magnified view (which can be set to apply the instant the focus ring is moved); focus peaking which I've set to "paint" yellow outlines on edges that are in focus; and a distance scale superimposed on the viewfinder. The body is metal harkening back to decades past when camera bodies were built like tanks. Even the covers over the electrical/signal connectors are proper metal, hinged doors not floppy plastic bits. The eye focus capability works well when the person?s head occupies a good portion of the frame. It doesn?t work well when there are multiple people in the frame. It took me a bit of searching in the menu for the Custom button settings to find the Eye AF selection which I assigned to C1. You must first focus on the face so that the Face Detection frame comes up, then press the Eye AF button to isolate focus on the near eye Without the grip the camera is very compact- larger than a Nex 7 but similar handling. With the grip the camera feels more like a SLT (e.g. A77 or A99) albeit much lighter. In either case the camera has a very solid feel. The electronic viewfinder (EVF) is bright, very sharp and contrasty. The LCD panel is similarly sharp and the brightness can be boosted in sunny settings. The menus are nice- reminiscent of the alpha cameras (although you can switch to a ?Tiled? view if you are more used to the Nex menus). I bought this camera primarily for landscape work mounted on a tripod with a remote shutter release. In other words, I?m doing everything I can think of to allow this high MP sensor to reach its potential. When I first received the camera I used it a fair bit as a walk-around. Even though the 55/1.8 lens is not optically stabilised (and I don?t think I?m very good at hand holding) I was surprized to see how sharp my first hand-held images were. I think this results from the camera resting nicely in the hand and being easy to brace. Still, to get every last bit of resolution from this sensor you will need really exceptional lenses (like the Zeiss 55/1.8) and should brace the camera (tripod best; tree, ground, knee second best). As I mentioned at the beginning of the review, using a very good lens that delivers sharp images with a 24MP sensor will produce a bump up in sharpness with the A7R. But to get the spectacular results that this sensor can produce you have to use a really exceptional lens.
