Sony presents Alpha 7C, its new super compact full-frame camera
Aimed at content creators, the company’s new camera shoots in 4K and has body stabilization.
Sony officially announced its new model of full-frame camera A7C, which recently had leaked specifications and appearance. The new model features a compact design and seeks to attract youtuber with good resources for videos.
The body of the A7C presents a different look from its other cameras in the model A7, looking more like the model A6600. The model also has a cheaper value than the other cameras of the A7 series.
Fans of compact cameras will love the new Sony A7C, which, contrary to what its dimensions might make you think, comes with a full-frame sensor just like the big DSLRs.
The Sony A7C is the smallest camera in the Alpha mirrorless family, but although its dimensions might make you think it would use an APS-C sensor, this time we have a full-frame sensor inside.
The A7C features a 24.2MP full-frame sensor with stabilization, can take photos at 10fps, ISO up to 51200, record 4K / 30fps and 1080p / 120fps video at rates up to 100Mbps, comes with USB-C, WiFi, and a 3 inch viewfinder screen. And to accompany it, we have a new 28-60mm f / 4-5.6 lens with only 45mm in length when retracted.
The camera measures just 124.0 x 71.1 x 59.7 mm and weighs 509g. Still comparing with the previous model, the A7C is smaller in all dimensions and features a structure with magnesium alloy construction that reduces the total weight of the product, being 22% lighter than the A7 III with card and battery included.
The camera also records in Sony’s S-Log2, S-Log3, HLG, along with 120FPS in full-HD.
The camera will accept the use of a single UHS-II card slot, space to connect a separate microphone and headset, and a USB Type C connector, for charging and transferring data.
