Exmor R Sensor, BIONZ X Processor, and 4D FOCUS

24.1MP Full-Frame BSI Sensor and Image Processing

Equipped with a back-illuminated configuration, the full-frame 24.2-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, in tandem with the BIONZ X image processor, delivers high-resolution images and videos while reducing noise and boosting processing speed. The architecture of this sensor, complemented by a gapless on-chip lens design and anti-reflective coating, enhances light absorption and sharpens detail. Additionally, the inclusion of a copper wiring layer significantly enhances the speed of data transmission, enabling the production of 14-bit, high-resolution images with a native ISO range of 100-51200, extendable to 50-204800, for exceptional image quality across various lighting conditions.

Fast Continuous Shooting and Recording Versatility

The synergy between the sensor and processor allows for rapid continuous shooting, achieving speeds of up to 10 fps at full resolution, capturing around consecutive JPEGs or 115 raw files in a row, while maintaining constant autofocus and auto-exposure whether using a mechanical or an electronic shutter.

Furthermore, this combination facilitates internal UHD 4K video recording that leverages the full sensor width for an expanded dynamic range. The BIONZ X processor, aided by a high-speed front-end LSI, accelerates processing speeds and supports the capture of a remarkable 15-stop dynamic range at lower sensitivity settings, ensuring superior image and video quality.

Fast Hybrid Autofocus

Spanning most of the imaging area, the Fast Hybrid AF system blends 693 phase-detection points with 425 contrast-detection zones to achieve fast and accurate focus under diverse lighting conditions, with a sensitivity reaching -4 EV.
Rapidly secure focus on subjects using Real-time Tracking, which utilizes AI for dynamic subject tracking, or opt for touch tracking for hands-on subject selection.
Additionally, Real-time Eye AF, effective for both people and animals, guarantees essential focus precision for portrait shots.

Video Recording

UHD 4K Video Recording in XAVC S Format

UHD 4K video can be internally recorded at various frame rates up to 30 fps, and the use of 2.4x oversampling provides enhanced detail by enabling full pixel readout, which significantly improves image quality by reducing moiré and aliasing effects.


Support is also available for Full HD 1080p video recording at frame rates as high as 120 fps. Both 4K and Full HD resolutions employ the 100 Mb/s XAVC S codec in an MP4 format, featuring 4:2:0 8-bit color depth.


The capability to record at 120 fps facilitates the creation of slow-motion videos at 4x and 5x speeds, with playback frame rates of either 30p or 24p.
Beyond the high-quality internal recording options, an uncompressed HDMI output allows for the connection of an optional external recorder, enabling pristine 4K capture with 4:2:2 8-bit color sampling for even greater quality.

S-Log3 and Other Color and Gamma Controls

The a7C offers a wide range of customizable color and gamma settings, giving users the freedom to tweak gamma, black levels, knee, color levels, and more:

  • It features the S-Log2 Gamma Curve, also utilized in Sony's high-end cinema cameras, which captures up to 1300% more dynamic range than the standard REC709. This enhancement significantly broadens post-production versatility.
  • Support for HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) enables recording in a broad color spectrum, facilitating the direct creation of HDR (High Dynamic Range) content from the camera.
    Additionally, S-Log3 is available, offering a dynamic range of over 15 stops, which provides increased flexibility in color grading, particularly in the shadow to mid-tone areas of the image.

5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization

Despite its compact form, the a7C boasts a highly effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system, offering up to 5 stops of compensation to counteract various types of camera movement encountered during handheld photography and videography. This feature empowers users to confidently employ any lens, including adapted ones, for critical shooting without worrying about blur caused by camera shake.

The stabilization system adeptly handles pitch and yaw adjustments for shots taken with long focal lengths. For macro and high-magnification photography, it adds horizontal and vertical shift compensation into the mix. Roll compensation is beneficial across all types of shooting. Importantly, all five axes of stabilization are continuously active, ensuring steady shots even when using third-party lenses and adapters, or lenses that already incorporate optical stabilization.

Compact and Versatile Design

Integrated EVF and Vari-Angle LCD

The a7C stands out with its compact, lightweight design and rangefinder-esque layout, offering a sleek and manageable option for daily photography. It is about 20% smaller and lighter than other models in the a7 series, boasting a size comparable to APS-C-format cameras.

It features a 0.39-inch XGA OLED electronic viewfinder with a high resolution of 2.36 million dots and 0.59x magnification, ensuring bright, detailed viewing.

The camera is equipped with a 3.0-inch 921.6k-dot LCD screen that sports a vari-angle design for flexible shooting from various positions, including high, low, and selfie angles. The touchscreen enhances user interaction for straightforward control and review.

Constructed from magnesium alloy and featuring a weather-sealed design, the a7C is built to withstand diverse shooting environments, ensuring durability.

Battery life is robust, with the large-capacity NP-FZ100 battery providing approximately 740 shots per charge using the rear LCD, or 680 shots with the EVF, ensuring prolonged use during shoots.

Additionally, it includes a single SD memory card slot that accommodates UHS-II cards, enabling rapid data transfer speeds.

Ports and Interface

A USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port enables swift and dependable tethering capabilities and also permits charging the camera from a power source while it's connected. The Multi Interface Shoe is compatible with optional accessories like the ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or the XLR-K3M XLR Adapter Kit, enhancing audio recording quality by transmitting a digital audio signal to the camera, rather than an analog one. Additionally, both 3.5mm microphone and headphone jacks are provided, offering enhanced control over audio recording.

Wireless Connectivity

The a7C comes equipped with built-in Wi-Fi, facilitating immediate image transfer to mobile devices for direct posting on social networks, email, or cloud storage services. Compatibility with both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands further supports wireless tethered shooting. Bluetooth capability enables the acquisition of location data. Additionally, NFC (Near Field Communication) support simplifies creating a one-touch connection with a mobile device. Once connected, the mobile device can display a live view from the camera and remotely activate the camera's shutter.
