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.

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

Extraordinarily realistic images.

NEW BIONZ X Image Processing Engine

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 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.

High-end features packed in a remarkably compact body.

Fine-tune Every Scene with Remarkable Accuracy

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.

Dust and Moisture Resistance for Carefree Shooting

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 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

NEW AF area setting options

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera but I bought this camera along with the Zeiss 24-70 4.0 lens. Really good match. I have since then purchased the Zeiss 55 1.8 lens and the 90mm Macro. The 24-70 is still my favorite. So here is the "but". I only gave 4 stars rather than 5 due the RAW lossy compression which at times causes artifacting and information loss. I would rather have a large true RAW file than a compressed one. I am hoping that Sony will offer this choice either through a firmware update or an override via a playmemory app. I am interested in the 42 mp a7RII, but I cannot see spending over 3 grand on something that has the lossy compression problems mentioned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony A7 - a pleasure to use I bought the A7 after using a Nex 5N and Nex 6 - both of which I loved and still use regularly. However, I wanted FF as well, hence the A7 purchase. I have never regretted it and love it. The menu systems have improved with each iteration, and I find the one in the A7 easy to set/customise and use. I have one FF AF lens for now, and the rest are all MF - everything from OM's, to Leica Ms, LTMs and Rs, as well as Nikon and Canon FD (in other words too many). For me IQ is especially good with the result that I have sold most of my DSLR kit and will be selling more in the future. Highly recommend the A7, certainly for anyone with legacy lenses, and for those wishing for an excellent digital mirrorless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes photography fun again! Like the other reviewer, I started my SLR journey in 1976 with a Minolta SRT-101. I used that camera for almost 15 years. It was an extension of my world, that viewfinder was my world! With journeys into Nikon territory (N6006, and even a P&S Coolpix), and various iPhone models I never got the same feeling as I did from my old SRT-101. That pure joy of "seeing", and making "the shot". Fast-forward to 2014 and the Sony A7... the joy is back! From full manual to anything else, this camera makes me appreciate the pure image again. It does have a lot of tech, but it's not the focus of what you're doing. And the camera even feels like the SRT in my hands. I love what this camera does for me! And the images are just beautiful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little full frame camera What a fun camera. Very responsive and great images. Easy to handle and switch between modes. Nice and light but packs a big punch. My only disappointment was Lightroom/photoshop not recognizing RAW photos. Hopefully they will update their plug-ins soon. Also couldn't register as Sony website has not been updated to recognize the product number. The price you pay for being on the cutting edge! Overall just love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Camera I've Ever Owned Of all the cameras I've owned thru the years this is by far the best. I was looking for a full featured camera that was smaller and lighter. I was having trouble with the full sized DSLRs because of the bulk and weight. This one solved all my problems in one fell swoop. The image quality is top notch and since I had already purchased several e-mount lenses, they were transferable to this one. That's a big plus. Overall, I think this may well be the last camera I ever buy. I haven't begun to use all its features and am thoroughly satisfied with my photographic results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SRT 101 I fell in love with photography using an all manual Minolta SRT 101. I really enjoyed the direct creative control of that instrument. I never enjoyed dslr photography as much. So when I first learned how to adapt vintage glass to the modern mirror less camera I was overjoyed. I went out & bought a Sony Nex 5n (because of the price) & then sold that for a Fuji X e1 (for the view finder & retro style) I was disappointed with both. Regardless of image quality crop factor had always separated the image I got from the one I saw in my head. Crop factor always caused me to have to take a few extra steps back in order to frame the shot & compromise the shallow depth of field. With the a7 & my vintage lenses, all fast primes, I get exactly what I envision. The controls of the a7 make it very easy to adjust shutter speed & iso quickly. The digital view finder is bright & clear with no jitter or lag. Focus peaking & focus magnification makes manual focus fun & easy. The image quality of the raw files require very little post production. They write fast to the memory card. They open in light room looking like film, with wide dynamic range & lots of head room for creativity if you choose to play with saturation & contrast. Only at high ISO do they require a small amount of color noise reduction & highlight recovery. This camera meets all of my expectations. It is as much of a joy as my SRT 101.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb images, but with compromises The images produced by the Alpha 7 are simply superb. I have been shooting with the Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 and the kit lens (28-70mm)--but mostly the Zeiss. Paired with the Zeiss, the photos are simply unsurpassed (I also have Canon 5dii). The kit lens is adequate for casual photos, cityscapes, and very convenient but there is a significant difference between the Zeiss and the kit zoom (as would be expected when comparing any zoom to a fixed focal length). The camera is also easy to work with, having multiple dials permitting manual control and customization without accessing menus. I greatly enjoy shooting with it and the results have been excellent. There are some negative aspects to this camera. 1) The battery life is truly abysmal. I have no idea what it is rated for, but after three hours and maybe 120 shots in a European city I would find my battery near zero. I could easily use three batteries in a single day without shooting any video. In order to accommodate this when traveling, it is essential to have at least two chargers with you in order to be ready for the next day. Sony should remedy this by sending everyone who bought the camera an additional battery and an external charger, because the battery performance is way below what it should be. I also shoot portraiture professionally; I would never think to use the Sony for this simply because I couldn't make it through a single session on one battery, which is standard on my Canon. 2) The system moves back and forth between the EVF and the back screen when you lift the camera to your face. But the system is not smart enough. In a city or a museum, I would frequently want to shoot at waist level to stabilize the camera at the end of the strap. This permits you to take advantage of the back screen articulated. However, if the camera is within 8 or 9 inches of your body, the screen won't come on because it thinks you are raising the camera to use the eye-piece. This is very frustrating. Not sure how they missed that. 3) In complex lighting situations the meter has a tendency to overexpose. This is counteracted by adjusting the exposure compensation which is at one's finger tip, but it requires constant adjusting for relatively similar situations. In some of my samples, the images were shot well below what the meter said was a good exposure. In effect, I stopped trusting the meter and habitually shot 1/3 or even 2/3 below the center point on the meter. When touring, I like to shoot Aperture Priority, but because of the need to pay such close attention to exposure, I might as well have had it on manual. What this means is that more casual snap-shooters should avoid this camera because it requires that you understand what you are doing to take full advantage of the cameras capabilities. These three issues are frustrating in their own right and they require adjustments by the photographer. Except for the battery, they can be accommodated. Overall, I very much enjoy shooting with the camera. I like the relatively small size of the body and lenses (compared to my DSLR) and the image quality, when appropriately exposed, is first rate.When traveling I leave my DSLR home and carry the A7 and a NEX-7 body. The images on both are of the highest quality. I have blown up A7 images to full poster size; they are gorgeous. And I regularly print at 18x12 in my studio--images are beautiful. I shoot exclusively in RAW so I cannot say anything about in-camera JPG. This is a serious camera for people who know what they are doing, so those who rely upon JPG may want a simpler tool anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Digital Nikon FE I Always Wanted The Nikon FE was a triumph of simplicity and rugged durability from the manual 35mm film SLR days. I used to travel with one and a few lenses. Since going digital in 2001 I've been wanting to recapture that more involved, contemplative shooting experience, but was repeatedly thwarted. (The digital SLRs are not the same thing at all...) The Sony A7 is the first digital camera that allows me to work with the old manual lenses I like, uncropped and in a reasonably compact and affordable form. More importantly, it is extremely friendly for manual focus. Much friendlier than most DSLRs and usually quite a bit better even than the old manual film bodies. This product has no competition at the moment, except of course the more specialized 7r and 7s models. The plain old A7 is a good all-purpose choice that is easiest on the budget. I really like the control layout and build quality. Some yearn for the full retro experience but, much as I admire and crave that, I think Sony's approach makes the most sense for the digital age. You don't get the simple shutter dial with an "A" setting but you do get a mode dial that lets you change entire groups of settings before you even power up the camera. Image quality is superb. Even with a cheap old manual lens, I can usually get closer to a true 24 megapixel capture than I ever could with my APS-C camera with the best lenses. I find I really appreciate and use the extra low light and shallow focus capabilities. The colors seem more vivid and natural as well. This format definitely feels like "home" to me now. This camera may not be for everyone, but for the more hand-crafted approach, I can't imagine a better way to shoot.
