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 stabilisation unit keeps it steady and blur-free whether you're shooting stills or movies.
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 10fps3 with AF/AE tracking, and up to 8fps3 in live-view mode. It also supports silent shooting2 at up to 10fps3 with AF/AE tracking.
Depend on persistent subject tracking
Sony's smart AI-based Real-time Tracking0 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 Animals0 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 changes0.
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  rotational shake (roll on Z axis), which affects nighttime shots and video.
