Stunning image quality, only possible from a full-frame sensor
Bigger sensors create better images, and the α7C's full-frame sensor is much larger than the sensors in smartphones, compact digital cameras and similar-sized APS-C interchangeable-lens cameras. The resulting increased light collection allows for professional-quality images with reduced noise, and more retained detail in both shadows and highlights.
The α7C was fashioned to be compact, lightweight and portable without compromising genuine full-frame camera performance. This goal was accomplished by developing new mechanical components, such as a space-saving shutter and optical stabilisation unit, along with layout and structural enhancements.
A custom-designed, compact 5-axis optical stabilisation unit provides effective 5.0-step* shake correction.
* CIPA standards. Pitch/yaw shake only. Planar T* FE 50mm F1.4 ZA lens. Long exposure NR off.
The rigid but lightweight magnesium-alloy body* features monocoque construction, just like high-performance cars and aircraft, for greater strength and dependability.
*Strength is provided by the magnesium alloy construction of the front cover, top cover and rear cover.
