42.4MP full-frame Exmor R CMOS sensor

The Exmor R sensor's back-illuminated, gapless on-chip lens design increases light sensitivity and provides wide dynamic range, despite its high resolution of 42.4 MP.

Greatly enhanced image processing

A new front-end LSI and BIONZ X boost processing speed and are teamed with the Exmor R sensor to deliver up to 15-stop dynamic range at low ISO sensitivity for stills, enabling richer tonal expression.

Wide standard ISO 100-32000 range

The standard ISO range has been extended to ISO 100-32000 (expandable to ISO 50-102400), and noise has been reduced by as much as a full stop in the mid sensitivity range.


Comprehensive Fast Hybrid AF coverage

399 phase-detection AF points covering approx. 68% of image area width and height plus 425 densely positioned contrast-detection AF points improve focus that might otherwise be unachievable.

Up to 2x faster (approx.) AF response

Thanks to much more responsive, enhanced Fast Hybrid AF, AF speed is up to approximately two times faster under dim lighting conditions.

AF tracking improved by approx. 2x

The AF algorithm inherited from the α9 accounts for two times more precise AF tracking for continuous shooting, even of complex or sudden movement.

Reliable AF down to EV-3 brightness

Advanced AF algorithms contribute to high AF precision down to light levels as low as EV-315, for more reliable autofocus in dark scenes.

Shoot continuously in absolute silence

This camera allows silent shooting at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking. Silence is critical for shooting wildlife, when even slight noise can mean missing a chance at an ideal shot.

Shoot up to 76 images continuously

Capture up to 76 compressed RAW or JPEG images in a continuous burst. This allows you to confidently concentrate on burst shooting without distraction.

Dual media slots, UHS-II support

With two media slots, including one that's UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing, the a7R III can simultaneously or relay record, separate RAW/JPEG data and stills/movies, and copy data between cards.

Extend shooting to professional length

The a7R III can use a NP-FZ100 battery with approx. 2.2 times as much capacity as a NP-FW50 battery. USB Type-C and Multi/Micro USB ports allow connection of external batteries for extended shooting.

Rating function

With rating function, you can rate recorded still images from 1 to 5 stars anywhere right on the spot, using the playback screen to perform the function if it is assigned to a custom button.

Grouping display for continuous shots

A series of photos shot in continuous mode can be reviewed as groups, play index display is improved, and continuous groups can be deleted or protected at once.

My Menu: faster to your favourites

Register up to 30 frequently used items on the new My Menu for instant recall. You can create and customize an optimal menu for your own convenience.


Eye AF with doubled performance

With the a7R III, Eye AF evolves with two times more immediate, effective eye detection and tracking, even when shooting a moving portrait subject.

5-axis optical in-body image stabilization

New stabilization unit/gyro sensors/algorithms effectively raise 5.5 stops. Five types of camera shake-angular shake (pitch/yaw), X/Y shift, and rotational shake (roll)-are compensated.

Enhanced image stabilization: freer shooting

Thanks to enhanced 5-axis in-camera image stabilizer, whenever you want to move and shoot freely, you can rely on the a7R III's high-resolution performance and mobility, in order to concentrate on the subject without worrying about various types of camera-shake blur.

Pitch and yaw compensation

Horizontal/vertical shift compensation

Roll compensation


High connectivity for professional workflow

The α7R III includes USB 3.1 Gen 1 compatible USB Type-C port and sync terminals that enable the camera to be connected directly to external devices without delay. These connections make workflow more seamless and stress-free, even for studio shooting that makes use of PC tethered shooting or flash.

USB 3.1 Gen 1 for fast data transfer

This makes PC tethered shooting available for smooth handling of big RAW image files, so you can quickly review images on a PC and continue shooting without much delay for file transfers.

Sync terminal available

A standard sync terminal is provided for convenient synchronisation with studio flash units and other external lighting equipment.

New Sony imaging software suite

A new suite of imaging apps provides top-quality RAW development, convenient PC tethering, and efficient viewing/management.

Capture One (for Sony)

Capture One Express (for Sony) is free software for high-quality finishing of RAW data. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for such compatible functions as local adjustment and PC tethered shooting.


High-resolution 4K HDR

In addition to capability to record stunning high-resolution 4K movies through 5K (15 MP) oversampling, the camera features a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile, supporting instant HDR workflow, that offers wide dynamic range for highly precise and lifelike movie images without colour grading.

Shoot and record 4K movies with oversampling

You can shoot and internally record 4K movies oversampled from 5K (15MP) equivalent data in Super 35 mm format. The results are startlingly beautiful in every detail.

Improved Fast Hybrid AF

Fast Hybrid AF for movies now autofocuses on subjects throughout an area as wide as the one that applies to stills, and the AF system is very smooth and quick at capturing fast-moving subjects.

Supporting various needs in HDR production

The α7R III features S-Log for flexible expression of images in post-production and HLG for instantaneous HDR workflow-a combination that fulfills various HDR production requirements.

HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) for instant HDR workflow

A new HLG picture profile supports instantaneous HDR workflow. Movies recorded in HLG picture mode will appear true-to-life with suppressed blocked shadows or blown highlights, without colour grading.
