  • Features
    Back-illuminated 42.4MP full-frame sensor

    Back-illuminated 42.4MP full-frame sensor

    The 35mm full-frame Exmor R CMOS image sensor features 42.4-megapixel resolution, back illumination and gapless on-chip lens design for extraordinary sensitivity and dynamic range, anti-reflection (AR) coating on sensor seal glass, and other innovations that unleash the sensor’s power to make images look realistic.

    Further enhanced image processing engine

    Further enhanced image processing engine

    The latest front-end LSI makes data readout from the image sensor approximately two times faster and the BIONZ X image processor is now about 1.8 times faster. Enhanced image processing realizes lower noise and further extended dynamic range across a wide sensitivity range of up to ISO 32000 (standard ISO, expandable to ISO 50-102400 for stills). Moreover, upgraded Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction achieves noise reduction — equivalent of approx. one stop — in mid-range ISO settings. Also, reproduction of skin colour has been dramatically improved, which is advantageous for portrait shooting. The α7R III also supports 14-bit RAW output even during silent shooting/continuous shooting.

    A quantum leap in AF performance

    A quantum leap in AF performance

    An evolved image processing system and α9 camera AF algorithms optimised for the α7R III improve AF speed, precision, and tracking performance. 399 phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast-detection AF points provide high-density wide-area coverage. Up to approximately two times faster AF speed and two times more precise AF tracking performance let you capture and maintain focus on nimble wildlife in unpredictable motion. The α7R III also autofocuses reliably down to EV-3 brightness.

    Eye AF with doubled tracking performance

    Eye AF with doubled tracking performance

    Eye AF’s enhanced precision, plus two times greater AF speed and AF tracking performance further assist you to easily shoot a portrait of a moving subject using AF-C even during continuous shooting, and even if the subject looks down and away from the camera, or is backlit with face in partial darkness. The α7R III’s E-mount body supports Eye AF for A-mount lenses mounted via an adaptor.

    Focal-plane phase-detection AF supports A-mount lenses

    Focal-plane phase-detection AF supports A-mount lenses

    Phase-detection AF can operate even when an A-mount lens is mounted to the α7R III via an LA-EA3 adaptor that doesn’t include a dedicated phase detection AF sensor. The 399-point focal-plane phase-detection AF system provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high-performance tracking whether an A-mount or E-mount lens is attached.

    Up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking

    Up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking

    With new shutter unit and image processing system refinements, the α7R III can shoot continuously at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking (up to 8fps with minimal display lag in live-view continuous shooting mode) for easy, stable shooting of even intensely active subjects. An electronic shutter allows silent, vibration-free shooting of wildlife when even slight noise can mean missing an ideal shot.

    Up to 76 images in continuous shooting

    Up to 76 images in continuous shooting

    Greater buffer memory, system speed, and UHS-II support allow the α7R III to capture up to approx. 28 uncompressed RAW, or 76 compressed RAW or JPEG images in a continuous burst at 10fps. Fn menu/menu display access, setting changes and review playback can occur during data writing. A countdown of the number of still images remaining to be written to memory is on display during playback.

    AF-ON button and multi-selector

    AF-ON button and multi-selector

    The AF-ON button activates autofocus without any half-press-shutter-button focus sequence, so you can concentrate better on exactly when to release the shutter and capture the moment instantly. A multi-selector lets you shift the point of focus quickly and efficiently. You can select and shift the point of focus intuitively, so you won’t miss great chances to shoot moving subjects.

    Anti-flicker shooting

    Anti-flicker shooting

    Flicker from fluorescent and other artificial lighting is automatically detected and shutter action is timed to minimise the flicker’s effect on still images. This suppresses exposure and colour anomalies at the top and bottom of images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as exposure and colour inconsistency between continuous shots, so you can take images indoors with more confidence.

    In-body 5-axis image stabilisation with up to 5.5-stop shutter speed advantage

    In-body 5-axis image stabilisation with up to 5.5-stop shutter speed advantage

    Now more effective than ever for the α series, this comprehensive system compensates for five types of camera shake that tend to blur images: pitch/yaw shake when shooting at longer focal lengths; X/Y shake in close-up (including macro) shooting; and roll shake when recording stills at night and movies. It effectively achieves 5.5-stop-faster shutter speed, so the α7R III can take full advantage of its 42.4-megapixel and live-view image performance. Furthermore, it functions with A-mount lenses attached via mount adaptor, as well as E-mount lenses.

    Pixel Shift Multi Shooting opens a new world of resolution

    Pixel Shift Multi Shooting opens a new world of resolution

    Applying mechanisms and control technology of image stabilisation, this new feature composites four separate pixel-shifted images that contain total data equal to approx. 169.6 million, or 42.4 million x 4 (RGGB), pixels to reproduce a single optimal still image of super-high resolution, detailed texture, balanced colour, and realistic atmosphere, with minimal moiré and colour artifacts. Images shot using this feature can be processed with the new Sony imaging software suite. [1]  The image sensor is moved in 1-pixel increments while shooting four sequential frames.  [2] Each pixel represents R, G, and B information.

    AE precision that’s faithful to a photographer’s intentions

    A 1200-segment live-view exposure analysis makes colour analysis and metering precise. Focus information from the lens keeps AE control and image brightness consistent even when subject position or background brightness changes. Highlight and Entire Screen Average metering modes now join the α7R III’s Multi, Center, and Spot metering modes. When the Focus Area parameter is set to Flexible Spot or Expand Flexible Spot, the metering spot can be linked to the focus area.

    Dual slots with UHS-II compatibility

    Dual slots with UHS-II compatibility

    This camera provides two media slots for SD card (UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing) and SD/MS card, respectively. Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data; separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies; and copy data from one card to the other. The memory card cover is lockable to prevent it from being opened unintentionally.

    3.69-million-dot, high-luminance Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder™

    3.69-million-dot, high-luminance Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder™

    This approximately 3.69-million-dot Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder provides accurate detail, contrast, and black reproduction, while maintaining natural image brightness. High-quality mode, suitable for fine focus adjustment, takes full advantage of rich image data from the image sensor to display more natural high-precision images with minimal moiré and jagginess, so you can concentrate more on shooting. Furthermore, you can choose 120/100fps from the selection of frame rates for the viewfinder to make motion look particularly smooth. Only an EVF such as this one could offer features such as a powerfully enhanced focus magnifier that allows autofocus while a chosen focus area is magnified in the viewfinder.

    Touch screen LCD for intuitive focus operations

    Touch screen LCD for intuitive focus operations

    A 3.0-type LCD touch screen with 1.44 million dots makes focus operation intuitive and instant. You can simply touch the monitor screen to specify a desired focus point with Touch Focus. Also, Touch Pad function lets you drag the focus frame to another point with a fingertip on the LCD screen as you monitor the shot through the viewfinder. 

    Shoot for more professional lengths

    Shoot for more professional lengths

    For extended periods of confident shooting, the NP-FZ100 battery has approximately 2.2 times the capacity of a NP-FW50 battery, and an optional VG-C3EM Vertical Grip can hold two batteries. USB Type-C™ and Multi/Micro USB ports allow external mobile batteries to power the camera for extended recording. Even more conveniently, accessories such as a remote control unit can be used via Multi/Micro USB port while power is supplied via USB Type-C™ port.

    Highly durable and operable in tough conditions

    Highly durable and operable in tough conditions

    The α7R III functions reliably in challenging environments. Its body is fortified by lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy top cover, front cover, internal frame, and rear cover. The number of lens mount screws has been increased to six for enhanced durability. Major buttons and dials are sealed. Sealing is provided throughout the body to minimise entry of dust and moisture.

    Smooth PC tethering via USB 3.1 Gen 1 port

    Smooth PC tethering via USB 3.1 Gen 1 port

    A USB Type-C™ port supporting fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 facilitates high-speed PC Remote transfer of large RAW data files, so you can quickly review images on a PC and continue shooting without delay. Also, a setting to transfer only JPEG files to PC lets you check images via PC even more quickly after continuous shooting because the camera doesn’t have to send big volumes of RAW data.

    Enhanced flash compatibility

    Enhanced flash compatibility

    The α7R III has new sync terminals, so non-dedicated flash units and cables with standard sync terminals can be connected for convenient synchronisation with studio flash units, etc. Release time lag when shooting with flash is minimised for smooth, responsive flash photography. Continuous flash shooting at up to 10fps offers advanced capture capability. To enhance versatility further, slow sync and rear curtain sync can be selected when shooting with wireless off-camera flash.

    Location Information Link via Bluetooth

    Clear, natural, realistic 4K movies

    Clear, natural, realistic 4K movies

    For high-resolution 4K movies with minimal moiré and jaggies, Super 35mm mode with full-pixel readout without pixel binning condenses approximately 1.8 times the amount of data required for 4K movies (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). Advanced image processing makes it possible to record full-frame 4K movies with dramatically improved image quality in the mid-to-high ISO range, so you make the most of the 4K movie format’s unique potential in every shot.

    Supports a wide range of needs in HDR movie production

    Supports a wide range of needs in HDR movie production

    Supporting a wide range of HDR movie production needs, the α7R III offers S-Log3 as well as S-Log2 gamma curves, for more flexibility to express images through grading operation in post-production, and a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile for instant HDR workflow. Recorded movies played back on an HDR (HLG) compatible TV need no colour grading to appear true-to-life, with no blocked shadows or blown highlights.  [1] High flexibility to fine-tune images as desired (Colour grading required)  [2] Instant and high-quality image (Colour grading not required)  

    Improved Fast Hybrid AF for movie recording

    Improved Fast Hybrid AF for movie recording

    An efficient combination of focal-plane phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF accurately locks onto quickly moving subjects, then tracks them smoothly. AF coverage for movies extends across an area almost as wide as the AF coverage area for still images, so once the high-density AF system locks onto a movie subject, the camera continues to track it steadily and tenaciously.

    Versatile movie recording functions

    The α7R III provides a wide array of functions to facilitate workflows of professional videographers, including clean HDMI output, time code / user bits (TC/UB), rec. control, marker display/setting, zebra function, Slow and Quick Motion, simultaneous proxy movie recording, extraction of a still from a movie, and Gamma Display Assist function, among others.

      Back-illuminated 42.4MP full-frame sensor

      Back-illuminated 42.4MP full-frame sensor

      The 35mm full-frame Exmor R CMOS image sensor features 42.4-megapixel resolution, back illumination and gapless on-chip lens design for extraordinary sensitivity and dynamic range, anti-reflection (AR) coating on sensor seal glass, and other innovations that unleash the sensor’s power to make images look realistic.

      Further enhanced image processing engine

      Further enhanced image processing engine

      The latest front-end LSI makes data readout from the image sensor approximately two times faster and the BIONZ X image processor is now about 1.8 times faster. Enhanced image processing realizes lower noise and further extended dynamic range across a wide sensitivity range of up to ISO 32000 (standard ISO, expandable to ISO 50-102400 for stills). Moreover, upgraded Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction achieves noise reduction — equivalent of approx. one stop — in mid-range ISO settings. Also, reproduction of skin colour has been dramatically improved, which is advantageous for portrait shooting. The α7R III also supports 14-bit RAW output even during silent shooting/continuous shooting.

      A quantum leap in AF performance

      A quantum leap in AF performance

      An evolved image processing system and α9 camera AF algorithms optimised for the α7R III improve AF speed, precision, and tracking performance. 399 phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast-detection AF points provide high-density wide-area coverage. Up to approximately two times faster AF speed and two times more precise AF tracking performance let you capture and maintain focus on nimble wildlife in unpredictable motion. The α7R III also autofocuses reliably down to EV-3 brightness.

      Eye AF with doubled tracking performance

      Eye AF with doubled tracking performance

      Eye AF’s enhanced precision, plus two times greater AF speed and AF tracking performance further assist you to easily shoot a portrait of a moving subject using AF-C even during continuous shooting, and even if the subject looks down and away from the camera, or is backlit with face in partial darkness. The α7R III’s E-mount body supports Eye AF for A-mount lenses mounted via an adaptor.

      Focal-plane phase-detection AF supports A-mount lenses

      Focal-plane phase-detection AF supports A-mount lenses

      Phase-detection AF can operate even when an A-mount lens is mounted to the α7R III via an LA-EA3 adaptor that doesn’t include a dedicated phase detection AF sensor. The 399-point focal-plane phase-detection AF system provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high-performance tracking whether an A-mount or E-mount lens is attached.

      Up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking

      Up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking

      With new shutter unit and image processing system refinements, the α7R III can shoot continuously at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking (up to 8fps with minimal display lag in live-view continuous shooting mode) for easy, stable shooting of even intensely active subjects. An electronic shutter allows silent, vibration-free shooting of wildlife when even slight noise can mean missing an ideal shot.

      Up to 76 images in continuous shooting

      Up to 76 images in continuous shooting

      Greater buffer memory, system speed, and UHS-II support allow the α7R III to capture up to approx. 28 uncompressed RAW, or 76 compressed RAW or JPEG images in a continuous burst at 10fps. Fn menu/menu display access, setting changes and review playback can occur during data writing. A countdown of the number of still images remaining to be written to memory is on display during playback.

      AF-ON button and multi-selector

      AF-ON button and multi-selector

      The AF-ON button activates autofocus without any half-press-shutter-button focus sequence, so you can concentrate better on exactly when to release the shutter and capture the moment instantly. A multi-selector lets you shift the point of focus quickly and efficiently. You can select and shift the point of focus intuitively, so you won’t miss great chances to shoot moving subjects.

      Anti-flicker shooting

      Anti-flicker shooting

      Flicker from fluorescent and other artificial lighting is automatically detected and shutter action is timed to minimise the flicker’s effect on still images. This suppresses exposure and colour anomalies at the top and bottom of images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as exposure and colour inconsistency between continuous shots, so you can take images indoors with more confidence.

      In-body 5-axis image stabilisation with up to 5.5-stop shutter speed advantage

      In-body 5-axis image stabilisation with up to 5.5-stop shutter speed advantage

      Now more effective than ever for the α series, this comprehensive system compensates for five types of camera shake that tend to blur images: pitch/yaw shake when shooting at longer focal lengths; X/Y shake in close-up (including macro) shooting; and roll shake when recording stills at night and movies. It effectively achieves 5.5-stop-faster shutter speed, so the α7R III can take full advantage of its 42.4-megapixel and live-view image performance. Furthermore, it functions with A-mount lenses attached via mount adaptor, as well as E-mount lenses.

      Pixel Shift Multi Shooting opens a new world of resolution

      Pixel Shift Multi Shooting opens a new world of resolution

      Applying mechanisms and control technology of image stabilisation, this new feature composites four separate pixel-shifted images that contain total data equal to approx. 169.6 million, or 42.4 million x 4 (RGGB), pixels to reproduce a single optimal still image of super-high resolution, detailed texture, balanced colour, and realistic atmosphere, with minimal moiré and colour artifacts. Images shot using this feature can be processed with the new Sony imaging software suite. [1]  The image sensor is moved in 1-pixel increments while shooting four sequential frames.  [2] Each pixel represents R, G, and B information.

      AE precision that’s faithful to a photographer’s intentions

      A 1200-segment live-view exposure analysis makes colour analysis and metering precise. Focus information from the lens keeps AE control and image brightness consistent even when subject position or background brightness changes. Highlight and Entire Screen Average metering modes now join the α7R III’s Multi, Center, and Spot metering modes. When the Focus Area parameter is set to Flexible Spot or Expand Flexible Spot, the metering spot can be linked to the focus area.

      Dual slots with UHS-II compatibility

      Dual slots with UHS-II compatibility

      This camera provides two media slots for SD card (UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing) and SD/MS card, respectively. Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data; separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies; and copy data from one card to the other. The memory card cover is lockable to prevent it from being opened unintentionally.

      3.69-million-dot, high-luminance Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder™

      3.69-million-dot, high-luminance Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder™

      This approximately 3.69-million-dot Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder provides accurate detail, contrast, and black reproduction, while maintaining natural image brightness. High-quality mode, suitable for fine focus adjustment, takes full advantage of rich image data from the image sensor to display more natural high-precision images with minimal moiré and jagginess, so you can concentrate more on shooting. Furthermore, you can choose 120/100fps from the selection of frame rates for the viewfinder to make motion look particularly smooth. Only an EVF such as this one could offer features such as a powerfully enhanced focus magnifier that allows autofocus while a chosen focus area is magnified in the viewfinder.

      Touch screen LCD for intuitive focus operations

      Touch screen LCD for intuitive focus operations

      A 3.0-type LCD touch screen with 1.44 million dots makes focus operation intuitive and instant. You can simply touch the monitor screen to specify a desired focus point with Touch Focus. Also, Touch Pad function lets you drag the focus frame to another point with a fingertip on the LCD screen as you monitor the shot through the viewfinder. 

      Shoot for more professional lengths

      Shoot for more professional lengths

      For extended periods of confident shooting, the NP-FZ100 battery has approximately 2.2 times the capacity of a NP-FW50 battery, and an optional VG-C3EM Vertical Grip can hold two batteries. USB Type-C™ and Multi/Micro USB ports allow external mobile batteries to power the camera for extended recording. Even more conveniently, accessories such as a remote control unit can be used via Multi/Micro USB port while power is supplied via USB Type-C™ port.

      Smooth PC tethering via USB 3.1 Gen 1 port

      Smooth PC tethering via USB 3.1 Gen 1 port

      A USB Type-C™ port supporting fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 facilitates high-speed PC Remote transfer of large RAW data files, so you can quickly review images on a PC and continue shooting without delay. Also, a setting to transfer only JPEG files to PC lets you check images via PC even more quickly after continuous shooting because the camera doesn’t have to send big volumes of RAW data.

      Enhanced flash compatibility

      Enhanced flash compatibility

      The α7R III has new sync terminals, so non-dedicated flash units and cables with standard sync terminals can be connected for convenient synchronisation with studio flash units, etc. Release time lag when shooting with flash is minimised for smooth, responsive flash photography. Continuous flash shooting at up to 10fps offers advanced capture capability. To enhance versatility further, slow sync and rear curtain sync can be selected when shooting with wireless off-camera flash.

      Supports a wide range of needs in HDR movie production

      Supporting a wide range of HDR movie production needs, the α7R III offers S-Log3 as well as S-Log2 gamma curves, for more flexibility to express images through grading operation in post-production, and a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile for instant HDR workflow. Recorded movies played back on an HDR (HLG) compatible TV need no colour grading to appear true-to-life, with no blocked shadows or blown highlights.  [1] High flexibility to fine-tune images as desired (Colour grading required)  [2] Instant and high-quality image (Colour grading not required)  

      Improved Fast Hybrid AF for movie recording

      Improved Fast Hybrid AF for movie recording

      An efficient combination of focal-plane phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF accurately locks onto quickly moving subjects, then tracks them smoothly. AF coverage for movies extends across an area almost as wide as the AF coverage area for still images, so once the high-density AF system locks onto a movie subject, the camera continues to track it steadily and tenaciously.

      Versatile movie recording functions

      The α7R III provides a wide array of functions to facilitate workflows of professional videographers, including clean HDMI output, time code / user bits (TC/UB), rec. control, marker display/setting, zebra function, Slow and Quick Motion, simultaneous proxy movie recording, extraction of a still from a movie, and Gamma Display Assist function, among others.
