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 stabilization unit, along with layout and structural enhancements.
Enjoy the full-frame advantage
The α7C’s full-frame sensor does more than just capture more light. Enhanced image depth, dynamic range, and detail are all possible thanks to the large sensor and pixel size.
Lenses to match your style
A vast E-mount lens line-up, from wide to telephoto, video, and specialized
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.
Expand your movie-making options
Achieve truly artistic movie-making with the superb control, image quality, and dimensionality of full-frame.
Capture the action as it happens, in beautiful detail
State-of-the-art AF and speedy continuous shooting capability help ensure you won’t miss that important split-second shot. The α7C’s optical image stabilization unit keeps it steady and blur-free whether you’re shooting stills or movies.
Depend on persistent subject tracking
Sony’s smart AI-based Real-time Tracking20 and Real-time Eye AF
Reliable subject tracking translates into more successful portraits. As with previous models, you can aim at the subject and half-press the preconfigured shutter button to start Real-time Eye AF. The α7C also has a new feature that lets you press the AF-ON button to activate Real-time Tracking even when not in AF-C mode, allowing you to use Real-time Tracking immediately. Focus is maintained even when the face is partially obstructed or when the subject is wearing glasses.
Animal portraits in perfect focus
Real-time Eye AF for Animals tracks and focuses on animals’ eyes
Taking successful still shots of pets and other animals is much easier with Sony’s cutting-edge algorithm-based AF. Fast, precise automatic detection and tracking of an animal’s eyes, rather than the tip of the nose or the whiskers, keeps everything in clear focus—simply leave it up to the camera. It works dependably even when an obstacle comes into view or when the camera’s horizontal/vertical orientation changes.
Zoom in, grab close-ups, and capture night scenes with greater clarity
The α7C’s optical 5-axis image stabilization 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  rotational shake (roll on Z axis), which affects nighttime shots and video
Full-frame image quality for movie creators
The α7C’s side-opening vari-angle monitor can be easily viewed, for example, even when a mic is attached, a gimbal is used, or when shooting from various positions. In addition, headphone and mic jacks allow you to use your favorite equipment. Plus, the large-capacity battery allows for extended shoots. All in all, the α7C is perfectly suited for vloggers and other creators.
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 combination is perfect for cable-free vlogging, and digital mic support 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 mode makes it easy. It supports high-speed full HD recording at 120fps, and both slow-motion and fast-motion effects are possible in camera, with frame rates ranging from 1–120fps. 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 it to the camera, so there’s no need for post-production grading.
