Sony a7 III ILCE7M3/B Full-Frame Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Camera
With outstanding imaging capability and high-speed performance contained in a compact body, the a7 III gives you the power, precision, and flexibility to capture once-in-a-lifetime moments just as you like.
A newly developed back-illuminated image sensor and evolved image processing system fulfill various shooting needs with high-quality imaging capabilities that you would expect only of a full-frame camera.
AF performance is improved using the same AF advancements as in the α9 and applying it optimally. Once the a7 III captures such unpredictably moving subjects as dancers, boxers, and wild animals in action, it won’t easily let them go.
The a7 III can shoot in a continuous burst at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking and up to 8fps burst shooting when shooting with live-view mode. The camera also supports silent shooting at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking at maximum resolution.
Capture an instant action with continuous shooting of up to 10fps—or 8fps for live-view shooting—with AF/AE tracking. Up to approximately 177 JPEG (standard) images, 89 compressed RAW images, or 40 uncompressed RAW images can be captured in one continuous burst.
This camera allows silent shooting at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking. Silence is critical for various scenes, when even slight noise can mean missing a chance at an ideal shot.
When artificial lighting flicker is detected, the shutter is timed to minimize possible exposure and color inconsistency in images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as between continuous shots.
Groups of shots taken in continuous mode can be reviewed, deleted, or protected quickly. You can access a menu screen and change settings, as well as operate image playback during data writing.
Full-pixel readout without binning in 35-mm full-frame mode makes it possible to condense approx. 2.4 times the data required for 4K movies (QFHD: 3840 x 2160), minimizing moiré and jaggies. Full-frame or Super 35-mm mode can be selected as needed. Furthermore, 4K recording employs XAVC S format at bitrates as high as 100 Mbps.
The α7 III’s operability is enhanced by fast control during shooting, dazzlingly clear views through the Tru-Finder, versatile connectivity, and extended shooting endurance from various power sources, plus high durability and resistance to wet or dusty conditions.
With two media slots, including one that’s UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing, the α7 III can simultaneously or relay record, separate RAW/JPEG data and stills/movies, and copy data between cards.
FE 35mm F1.8 Large Aperture Prime Lens
Thanks to innovative optical design, this large-aperture lens weighs a mere 9.9 oz (280 g) and is just 65.6 mm in diameter by 73 mm in length. That convenience and mobility come with superb image quality that makes it a great choice for both stills and movies. It is a full-frame lens, but also balances well with APS-C bodies, providing an equivalent focal length of 52.5 mm that is ideal for portraits and snapshots.
An aspherical element is strategically implemented in this lens’s advanced design to suppress optical aberration and achieve high resolution right out to the image periphery. Smooth bokeh is available when needed, supported by a 9-blade circular aperture mechanism that contributes to natural looking highlights. 0.73 ft (0.22 m) minimum focus distance and 0.24x maximum magnification make this lens useful for close-ups too.
A conveniently placed focus hold button not only offers easy focus hold control, but can be assigned to a variety of other functions from a menu accessed via the camera body. The lens also features a focus mode switch that allows instant switching between auto and manual focus. A dust- and moisture-resistant design ensures maximum reliability in challenging shooting environments.
The narrow depth of field available at a wide F1.8 aperture makes focus critical. The fast response and high precision of this lens’s linear-motor AF drive system ensure fast, precise, quiet autofocus operation. Outstanding AF performance is available not only for stills, but also for movies where “wobbling” is employed for delicate continuous focus control.
