24.3MP 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.

Bionz X™ logo

Superior processing

Expect superlative results with Sony's latest processing engine, BIONZ X™: truer color rendering, better noise reduction, and faster burst mode shooting.

Beauty starts here

Get up close with the world-class Exmor sensor

A series of advances make this full-frame Exmor™ sensor exceptional: higher speed from parallel signal processing, lower noise from smaller analog circuits, and more rapid signal conversion. With low noise, a wider dynamic range, and rich gradations, this sensor provides the level of detail necessary even for large-format prints.


Natural results in any light

What makes Sony’s latest processor our best? Enhanced detail reproduction and diffraction-reducing technology produce more natural outlines, and reduce blur from light points, especially at smaller apertures. Advanced area-specific noise reduction operates on every image, and with 16-bit processing and 14-bit RAW output, professionals can enjoy ultimate post-processing control.

Beautiful form. Robust function.

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 customization potential, and recording and connectivity options, all in a durable, lightweight body 25% smaller than leading DSLRs.

Full frame, compact form

At just 14.67 oz 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.

Internal construction build

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

Sony’s most advance autofocus ever, the α7 combines the speed of phase detection (with 117 focus points) and the accuracy of contrast detection. The refined Spatial Object Detection Algorithm gives an AF speed with the world’s fastest cameras. Additional enhancements include more accurate eye detection, lock-on autofocus for moving subjects, and autofocus area setting options.

5fps to 1 sec

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 prioritize a single pupil.

Lock-on autofocus shown with a moving subject

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.
