Meet the world's smallest and lightest 35 mm full-frame interchangeable-lens camera. With 36.4 megapixels, the α7R is not just a landmark for compact cameras—it is a landmark for all cameras. And with Sony's latest BIONZ X processor and no optical low-pass filter, the α7R offers unmatched lifelike detail. Get ready to capture reality as never before.
Bigger sensor, even more professional pictures
The full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor is same size as a 35mm film frame. It’s more than twice the area of the APS-C image sensor in many DSLR cameras, and many times larger than your ordinary compact camera’s sensor. Capturing far more light, it’s the key to flawless, pro-quality pictures. You’ll really see the difference with superb detail, colour and contrast, plus dramatically reduced image noise.
No Optical Low Pass Filter
The Alpha 7R requires no optical low pass filter to reduce moire effects in repeating sensor patterns, so the result is the removal of a potential barrier to image clarity. The result is clearer images with less blur.
Beauty in your hand
It’s a game-changing blend of power and portability that serious photographers have been waiting for. Crafted in tough magnesium alloy, dust and moisture resistant and weighing just 407g, the α7R is the world’s smallest, lightest 35mm full-frame interchangeable-lens camera. * “World’s smallest and lightest” refers to model α7R. Information correct as of 16th October 2013 and refers to commercially available products intended for consumer use.
Always in control
Frame shots through the high-contrast, detail-packed XGA OLED Tru-Finder. Tilt the bright 3.0-type 921K dot LCD for a different perspective, high or low. Craft the perfect image with comfortably-placed buttons and dials – 9 customizable buttons and 45 assignable functions. Add accessories with the Multi Interface Shoe and broaden your horizons even further.
For serious movie makers
Shoot flawless Full HD video at up to 50 progressive frames per second, with full P/A/S/M exposure control. View your footage live as it’s being recorded on an external monitor screen, just like a film director would. Pro-style movies deserve sound to match: fine-tune your audio with adjustable record levels and metering.
Easy sharing, no wires
Connect with Wi-Fi and transfer photos wirelessly to your iPad, iPhone or Android smartphone. And if you’re using an Xperia™ or NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet, just one touch is all it takes to connect with your mobile. Install PlayMemories Mobile Version 3.0 on your phone and use it as a handy remote to fire the camera’s shutter.
