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.
Sony SEL85F18 85mm F/1.8-22 Medium-Telephoto Fixed Prime Camera Lens
There’s nothing like the sharpness and smooth bokeh of a well-designed mid-range telephoto prime lens for portraiture, and the SEL85F18 is a standout choice. It features a compact, lightweight design for mobility, with high-performance optics and a large F1.8 maximum aperture that deliver outstanding image quality. An excellent second lens for both full-frame and APS-C camera users.
ED glass for chromatic aberration compensation, a 9-blade circular aperture, and carefully controlled spherical aberration contribute to superb sharpness and smooth bokeh.
A compact, lightweight (13.1 oz/371 g) design that is ideally matched to the α7 series offers a great blend of portability and high image quality for portraits, events, and more.
A customizable focus hold button, a wide and responsive focus ring, dust and moisture-resistant design, and other refinements add up to outstanding quality and versatility.
A double linear motor system directly drives the lens’s focus mechanism without intervening gears for precise, quiet operation that is ideal for movies as well as stills.
