24.3 MP Full Frame sensor
This remarkable new sensor has all the elements for world-class images: high-resolution, top sensitivity, extreme dynamic range, unsurpassed detail and low noise.

Superior processing
Expect superlative results with Sony’s latest processing engine: truer colour rendering, better noise reduction and faster burst mode shooting.

Get up close with the world-class Exmor sensor
Exmor™ sensor: higher speed from parallel signal processing, lower noise, faster signal conversion. Low noise, wider dynamic range + rich gradations, provides the detail even for large-format prints.

Natural results in any light
Enhanced detail reproduction + diffraction-reducing technology produce more natural outlines + reduce blur from light points. Noise reduction on every image + 16-bit processing + 14-bit RAW output.

Expert engineering from every angle
In designing the a7, Sony strove to balance the precise control working photographers need, with the ergonomics they want. The result is carefully-crafted knobs and dials, robust functions, extensive customisation potential and recording and connectivity options, all in a durable, lightweight body 25% smaller than leading DSLRs.

Full frame, compact form
At just 416g with battery, the α7 is about half the weight of leading DSLRs. And being less bulky as well, there’s no more giving up quality for portability.

Built light, built to last
Crafting the α7 from magnesium, the world’s lightest structural metal, means that the camera you carry with you today will also be with you tomorrow.

Where speed meets precision
The refined Spatial Object Detection Algorithm gives an AF speed with the world’s fastest cameras. Plus more accurate eye detection, lock-on autofocus for moving subjects + autofocus area setting options.

Stop the action beautifully
New faster, more accurate autofocus tracking uses powerful predictive algorithms and subject recognition technology to track every move with greater speed and precision.

New Eye Autofocus
For perfect portraiture, this function creates sharp focus on faces even when partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, thanks to enhanced eye detection that can prioritise a single pupil.

Lock-on Autofocus
Easily keep moving subjects in focus with this updated technology, which adjusts target frame size based on subject characteristics and makes use of a wide AF area to ensure usage of the optimal focus point.

Autofocus setting options
With the Flexible Spot AF area setting, you can select different-size autofocus area to match your subject, and help ensure the camera focuses on the intended area. Wide and Zone focus area settings are also available.

Smarter viewfinder, better photos
With 100% frame coverage, 1024x768 resolution, high contrast, real-time settings updates and accurate bokeh, the OLED (XGA) Tru-Finder™ is not merely a composition accessory, but an enhancement. Completing the professional-grade features are five display modes and colour temperature and brightness adjustment.

The advantage of accurate bokeh display
Unlike a traditional optical viewfinder (OVF), which distorts bokeh through the focusing screen, Sony’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) presents the image directly from the sensor, so you see exactly what the finished image will be. Change your f-stop? You’ll see the depth of field shift in the viewfinder.

Go from evaluating after, to perfecting before
Leading DSLRs allow you to zoom in on the LCD screen to check your images after the shot, but with the Tru-Finder™, you can make these adjustments before and during the process. So instead of wondering what you got, you can capture what you want.

Peaking function for precise details
Need instant confirmation of the most sharply-focused areas of your image? Activate the built-in peaking function, which can be adjusted in sensitivity and highlight colour to best suit individual preferences.

See exposure adjustments before you shoot
Cameras with traditional viewfinders have forced photographers to glance down at their LCD screen after each shot, or shooting in bunches to bracket a correct exposure. But no more: with the Tru-Finder™, see exposure adjustments before you shoot—and never take your eye off the subject.

Full HD video formats
Find the perfect expression for your vision with AVCHD at 60fps for an ultra-smooth look, or shoot 24p for classic cinema feel.

Professional soundtracks
Attach external microphones via the XLR adaptor, meter recording levels and monitor sound with the headphone jack.
