Compact Size, Full-frame Power

In combination with an FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 lens, the α7C1 achieves uncompromising full-frame quality with the world's smallest and lightest2 camera and lens system. Compact in size but meeting high expectations for image quality, AF and speed, it's truly an all-round performer, ready to enhance your creativity wherever you go.

Express yourself to the fullest degree

Powerful performance and extraordinary image quality

Despite the compact size of the camera body, which is the world's smallest and lightest3, the α7C delivers the spectacular image quality for both stills and movies that you'd expect from a full-frame camera. Fast, wide and steadfast AF, rapid-fire continuous shooting and a handy vari-angle LCD monitor help capture the action whenever it happens.

Full-frame imaging in a compact body

Superior light collection means high-quality, low-noise images

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.

Make a difference with a larger sensor

With a full-frame sensor it’s possible to take shots and achieve impressive images that are unique to this format. The α7C’s sensor is more than twice the size of the sensors found in APS-C cameras of similar body size, and up to 30 times larger than a smartphone sensor, for stunning images with greater depth and detail.

Compact size, easy operation

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.

Capture all the beauty of the world

The 24.2MP10 Exmor R™ CMOS sensor works with Sony's BIONZ X™ engine to deliver superb colour reproduction along with a wide 15-stop11 dynamic range, and it helps capture details and smooth transitions across all lighting conditions in both stills and movies.

Stunning images, even at fast shutter speeds and in dim light

The larger pixel sizes on the sensor allow for an increased signal-to-noise ratio, for beautiful images with more detail in textures and shadow areas. Noise reduction is particularly effective at the medium- and high-ISO sensitivities required for fast-moving or poorly lit subjects. Standard ISO100-51200 is extendable to ISO50-204800

Lenses to match your style

A vast E-mount lens line-up, from wide to telephoto, video and specialised

Whether you're an amateur or a professional, a photographer or a movie creator, a diverse range of over 50 E-mount lenses is available to elevate your creativity. Compact full-frame lenses provide exceptional low-distortion images, even at wide focal lengths, and allow for beautiful image depth and bokeh.

4K recording1314 for beautiful movie imagery

Shallow depth of field enables bokeh effects, one of the strengths of full-frame cameras. Full-pixel readout without pixel binning allows oversampling equivalent to 6K recording, for clean images with less moiré and jaggies.

Widen your expression with S-Log, HLG15 and Picture Profile options

S-Log3 support captures a wide dynamic range of 14 stops, revealing fine detail in both shadows and highlights in post-production. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)15 facilitates direct HDR playback and workflow, and Picture Profile provides various settings options for capturing images.

Super-accurate AF finds the subject quickly and keeps it in steady focus

The α7C takes advantage of the same AF advancements as our acclaimed α9, with unique 4D FOCUS for fast subject acquisition and steadfast tracking over a wide area. A total of 693 phase-detection AF points cover approx. 93% of the image area.

Never miss a moment, even with fast-moving subjects

To better capture subjects in motion, the α7C shoots in continuous bursts at up to 10fps16 with AF/AE tracking, and up to 8fps16 in live-view mode. It also supports silent shooting17 at up to 10fps16 with AF/AE tracking.

Reliable handheld still shots and movies

Zoom in, grab close-ups and capture night scenes with greater clarity

The α7C's optical 5-axis image stabilisation unit compensates for five types of camera shake with no loss of image quality, even when shooting without a gimbal or when shooting in the dark. These are [1, 2] angular shake (pitch and yaw) that tends to occur with a telephoto lens, [3, 4] shift shake (X and Y axes), noticeable as magnification increases, and [5] rotational shake (roll on Z axis), which affects nighttime shots and video.

Movie production made easy

Compact, lightweight and portable even with optional grip accessories

The side-opening LCD monitor makes self-vlogging easy, an optional grip and mic combination21 is perfect for cable-free vlogging, and digital mic support22 provides extra-clear sound. Popular vertical-format video is also supported, using metadata to allow vertically recorded footage to be replayed and edited in the vertical position without needing to rotate it first.

Slow-motion and fast-motion shooting

In-camera recording up to 5x slower or 60x faster than real time

Varying the pace of footage is an extra creative element you can add to movies, and the α7C's S&Q mode24 makes it easy. It supports high-speed full HD recording at 120fps14, and both slow-motion and fast-motion effects are possible in camera, with frame rates ranging from 1-120fps14 25. The resulting footage is up to 5x slower or 60x faster than real-time action.

Easy visual effects for movies

Picture Effect, Creative Style and Picture Profile features are a simple way to widen your creative expression when shooting movies. They provide a wide variety of visual effects and settings, from entry-level to professional. Picture Effect and Creative Style let you leave things to the camera, so there's no need for post-production grading.

Side-opening LCD monitor for flexible operation

The 921-thousand-dot26 3.0-type touch panel rotates 176° horizontally and 270° vertically. Use Touch Focus to shift focus instantly, or Touch Shutter to focus and capture still images with a single touch to the screen.

Easy battery charging even when shooting   

The large-capacity Z battery tucked into the α7C's compact body can take advantage of a USB power supply. A USB Type-C® cable is all you need for charging, and you can shoot while you're charging.


Sturdy dust- and moisture-resistant27 construction

Lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy is used for the camera's top, front and rear covers, and sealing is provided throughout the body to minimise dust and moisture entry.

Remote shooting from mobile devices and PCs

The α7C's Wi-Fi® capability makes it easy to set up remote shooting. Set up your camera at a distance and take selfies or vlog footage, using a PC, smartphone or tablet to preview, adjust settings, and operate the shutter28.

Quick data transfer to mobile devices for social-media sharing

Photos and videos can be transferred directly to smartphones and tablets on the spot29, for easy viewing, sharing and storage via 2.4 or 5GHz Wi-Fi®30. One-touch transfer is possible for certain devices, with QR-code connections for others.
