Sony Alpha a7

Available November 28, 2016

The Sony Alpha a7 is a full-frame, interchangable lens mirrorless camera that accepts Sony E-mount lenses. Key features include:

  • 24.3MP Full Frame Sensor. Despite its small physical size, the a7 offers a full-frame sensor that emphasizes high image quality. With its normal ISO range of 100-25600, the a7 provides excellent low-light performance.
  • E-mount. For the full-frame a7, Sony has taken their E-mount and created their line of FE lenses. These full-frame FE lenses utilize the same E-mount, but provide a larger image circle for covering the full-frame sensor. The existing APS-C E-mount lenses are compatible with the full-frame a7 and its big brother the a7R. However, you will have to shoot in crop-frame mode or accept any vignetting caused by the smaller image circle.
  • Hybrid Autofocus. The a7 features a combination 117-point, phase-detection / 25-point contrast-detection AF system for high speed performance and accuracy. There’s the option of flexible spot focus, as well as multipoint, center-weighted, and zone focusing modes. For video and legacy-lens users, the manual focus peaking enables highly visible and accurate operation and can be optimized for full-frame or APS-C-format shooting modes.
  • High Res EVF & LCD. The built-in 2.4M-Dot OLED electronic viewfinder gives users a large live preview of what the sensor sees with 100% frame coverage. The tiltable 3.0" 1,229K-dot rear LCD can also be used for image composition and review when shooting at arm’s length.
  • HD Video. The a7 shoots Full HD 1080 video at 24p/60i/60p frame rates. It supports both AVCHD and MP4 codecs, as well as uncompressed video output via an HDMI connection. It has both in-camera stereo microphone and external stereo mic input for audio capture.
  • High Build Quality. The durable magnesium-alloy body features dust and moisture sealing, enabling use in less than ideal conditions. It offers plenty of customizable buttons depending on user preference, front and rear dials, and dedicated exposure compensation dial. The Multi-Interface hotshoe allows an external flash to be connected, which is important since there’s not a built-in flash.
  • Other Notable Features. The a7 has both built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capability for connecting to smartdevices, as well as an app store for adding features to the camera such as Sony’s Smart Remote. There’s also the option to remotely control the camera via USB. One very positive note is the menu system is the same found in the a99 and RX1 / RX1R, rather than the entry-level menu found in previous NEX cameras. It records its 14-bit RAW images, JPG, and video files to SDHC / XC memory cards, and uses the rechargable NP-FW50 battery that’s rated for 340 shots per charge.
  • Warning: While this camera accepts any E-mount lens, only the Sony FE lenses offer full-frame coverage!
