The Alpha 7c Mirrorless Digital Camera Sony a7C is the company’s latest and smallest full-frame interchangeable lens camera. It fits a 24MP full-frame sensor and image stabilization into a body more closely resembling the APS-C sensor a6600.
A lot of work has clearly gone into making this one of the smallest full-frame cameras available, whereas a lot of the features and capabilities are familiar. A new retractable kit zoom is being launched along with the a7C to help maintain those size savings
Sony Alpha 7c Mirrorless Digital Camera
Despite the compact size of the camera body, which is the world’s smallest and lightest, the Alpha 7c Mirrorless Digital Camera 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 vary-angle LCD monitor help capture the action whenever it happens. Bigger sensors create better images, and the a7C’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. With a full-frame sensor, it’s possible to take shots and achieve impressive images that are unique to this format.
The a7C’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. The a7C 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.
