Overview

A New Frame of Mind

No other full frame, interchangeable-lens camera is this light or this portable. 24.3MP of rich detail. A true-to-life 2.4 million dot OLED viewfinder. Wi-Fi® sharing and an expandable shoe system. It's all the full-frame performance you ever wanted in a compact size that will change your perspective entirely.

 

 

 

World's Smallest and Lightest

Meet the world's smallest lightest and interchangeable lens full-frame camera*. Sony's Exmor® image sensor takes full advantage of the Full-frame format, but in a camera body less than half the size and weight of a full-frame DSLR.

*Among interchangeable-lens cameras with a full frame sensor as of October 2013.

 

 

 

 

Full Frame Brilliance

Enter a whole new world of high-quality images thanks to the 24.3MP effective 35mm full-frame sensor, a normal sensor range of ISO 100 – 25600, and a sophisticated balance of high resolving power, gradation and low noise. Never miss a shot as the BIONZ® X image processor enables up to 5 fps high-speed continuous shooting and 14-bit RAW image data recording.

 

 

 

New BIONZ X Image Processing Engine

Sony proudly introduces the new BIONZ® X image processing engine, which faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing capabilities. Together with front-end LSI (large scale integration) that accelerates processing in the earliest stages, it enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise whether you shoot still images or movies.

 

 

 

 

 

DSLR-like Focusing Speed

Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus combines speedy phase-detection AF with highly accurate contrast-detection AF, which has been accelerated through a new Spatial Object Detection algorithm, to achieve among the fastest autofocusing performance of any full-frame camera. First, phase-detection AF with 117 densely placed phase-detection AF points swiftly and efficiently moves the lens to bring the subject nearly into focus. Then contrast-detection AF with wide AF coverage fine-tunes the focusing in the blink of an eye.

 

 

 

 

 

Lightning Quick Autofocus

Get ultra high-speed AF despite the use of a full-frame sensor via an advanced image processing engine and improved algorithms that combine and optimize image sensor read-out speed.

 

 

 

 

 

Eye Catching

Capture subjects partially turned away from the camera in a shallow depth of field with no problem thanks to Eye AF. Simply focus on a face, and a green frame appears over the prioritized eye to confirm the proper subject is locked. Its extremely accurate eye detection can even prioritize a single pupil. Eye AF can be used when the function is assigned to a customizable button, allowing users to instantly activate it depending on the scene.

 

 

 

 

Optimal Optics

To take advantage of the lightweight on-the-go body, the a7 is fully compatible with Sony's E-mount lens system as well as compact and lightweight E-mount full-frame lenses from Carl Zeiss® and Sony's premier G-Series.

 

 

 

 

Fast and Intuitive Shooting Control

Respond swiftly with just the right settings without searching through dedicated menus thanks to Quick Navi Pro. Easily view all major shooting options on the LCD screen so you can rapidly confirm settings and make adjustments on the fly when fleeting shooting opportunities arise.

 

 

High Contrast OLED Viewfinder

View every scene in rich detail with the 2.4M dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder, which features OLED improvements and the same 3-lens optical system used in the flagship a99. Since the viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, you can accurately monitor your scene and the settings results. You'll enjoy rich tonal gradations and 3 times the contrast of the a99, along with high-end features like 100% frame coverage and a wide viewing angle.

 

 

 

Cover Every Shooting Angle

Snap shots high over crowds or down low to capture a pet's eye view with

the tiltable 3.0" (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine™ LCD that boasts a range of movement between approximately 84° up and 45° down. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic™ technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.

 

 

 

Full HD Output

Capture Full 1920 x 1080 HD uncompressed clean-screen video files with external recording devices via an HDMI® connection in 60p and 60i frame rates. Selectable in-camera AVCHD™ codec frame rates include super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, while MP4 codec is also available for smaller files for easier upload to the web.

 

 

 

 

 

Capture the Decisive Moment

When your subject is moving fast, you can capture the decisive moment with clarity and precision by shooting at speeds up to 5 frames per second. New faster, more accurate AF tracking, made possible by Fast Hybrid AF, uses powerful predictive algorithms and subject recognition technology to track every move with greater speed and precision.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PlayMemories Camera Apps

The exciting new application download service, PlayMemories™ Camera Apps, lets you add new functions to your camera's existing feature-set to heighten photographic expression according to your own creative needs. Two applications are currently available for a7 as of October 16, 2013: Direct Upload uploads photos directly to networking services and Smart Remote Control allows a smartphone to control the camera. Many more apps will become available later, including Multiple Exposure, Lens Compensation, Photo Retouch and Picture Effect+.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simply Connect with Smartphones and Tablets

Wirelessly share your photos and videos through simplified Wi-Fi/NFC control. Use Wi-Fi or NFC (near field communication) for convenient cordless image transfer to Android™ smartphones and tablets. Simply touch devices to establish an NFC connection; no complex set-up is required. Even better, the smart Remote Control feature lets you control the shutter through your smartphone after you pair it to the camera.

 

 

 

 

View 4K Stills on Your 4K TV

Watch Ultra High Definition slide shows directly on compatible 4K televisions via optional HDMI or Wi-Fi connection8. The a7 converts images for optimized 4K image size playback (8MP) so you can enjoy expressive rich colors and amazing detail like never before.
