  • Features
    12.2MP 35mm full-frame sensor gives top image quality

    12.2MP 35mm full-frame sensor gives top image quality

    A huge 35mm full frame sensor offers 50x more surface area than a conventional compact camera sensor. The larger suface area means vastly better sensitivity for low-light shooting as well as fine control over depth of field. Paired with great optics, Sony's full frame sensor is ideal for creative, commercial, and landscape photography.

    Ultra-high sensitivity up to ISO 409600

    Expand your still and movie capabilities with the ultra-high sensitivity range from ISO 50 to 409600 for still images and 100 to 409600 for movies. High ISO lets you choose to shoot without unnatural flash illumination and allows faster shutter speeds (to freeze motion) even in low light--ideal for sports on an overcast day.

    BIONZ™ X for superior detail and texture

    BIONZ™ X for superior detail and texture

    All digital cameras need to convert the light captured by their sensor to a beautiful digital photograph. The engine that powers this conversion is just as important as your lens and a high-resolution sensor--so Sony developed the remarkable BIONZ(tm) X processor, allowing more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise while shooting both photos and movies.

    High-quality video with the XAVC S format

    High-quality video with the XAVC S format

    The high-bit-rate XAVC S format is provided for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional movie makers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to bring about consumer-friendly editing and file sizes.

    Multiple recording formats provide video versatility

    Shoot to suit, with a range of video formats available. Capture using the high bitrate AVCHD or XAVC S codec for editing and playback on big screens; or choose the MP4 mode for quick uploading and sharing. Capture motion at up to 24p frame rates for dramatic slow motion possibilities.

    Full-frame filmmaking capability

    Full-frame filmmaking capability

    Professional quality moviemaking in the palm of your hand. Capture stunning images, even in low light thanks to the premium Exmor CMOS sensor. Then enjoy the flexibility to add external audio capture plus off-board video monitoring and recording, all designed to put professional creation in reach of anyone.

    Clean HDMI output

    Monitor and capture uncompressed video using the clean HDMI output. Simultaneously record video to onboard memory cards in playback-friendly compressed formats, as well as to an external recorder in your choice of formats and bitrates, for ultimate professional production flexibility.

    Professional gamma setting

    The S-Log2 is a proprietary Sony gamma setting featured in commercial video equipment, and incorporated here. Invaluble for professionals seeking post-production flexibility, this preset Picture Profile offers up to 14 stops of dynamic range - enough latitude to capture all the detail in both deep shadow and bright sunlight.

    Pro-level time code and user bit video functions

    An essential tool on multi-camera shoots, timecode dramatically speeds up editing where several cameras need to be syncronised. Both Record Run, which advances timecode only while recording, and Free Run, with continuous timecode advancement are supported. Additionally a User Bit feature lets you add identifying information (such as scene and take numbers) alongside the timecode.

    Picture Profile for pre-shoot settings

    Fine-tune the look of your movies before shooting by adjusting gradation (black level, gamma and black gamma), color adjustment (color mode, intensity, color tone and depth), basic color (gamma and color mode) and more. Adjusted parameters can be saved along with other settings as a profile, and up to seven profiles can be stored for later recall.

    120fps at HD resolution for super slo-mo video

    When shooting movies in the Super-35mm equivalent (APS-C) crop mode, this camera supports high-frame-rate 120fps shooting at HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels). This remarkable capability broadens your expressive options since a movie shot at this frame rate can be played back at 24p to create stunning 5x slow-motion effects.

    Enhanced Fast Hybrid Autofocus captures action

    Enhanced Fast Hybrid Autofocus (AF) is comprised of a number of features: Phase-detection AF (bringing the subject into focus), contrast-detection AF (fine-tuning focus points), and Spatial Object Detection (which estimates subject movement). They all work together seamlessly to let you capture a fast-moving subject with perfect sharpness.

    See settings with the XGA OLED Tru-Finder

    See settings with the XGA OLED Tru-Finder

    Preview your camera settings and effects in real-time even when using the viewfinder. Unlike optical viewfinders, you can compose black and white photos or preview exposure adjustments before pressing the shutter. Plus, features like 100% frame coverage, wide viewing angle, information display modes, peaking function, and focus magnification will significantly enhance how you shoot.

    Comprehensive anti-dust system

    To keep your photos blemish free, an anti-dust mechanism vibrates ultrasonically whenever you switch off the camera--thus removing any particles adhering to the image sensor. Additionally, an anti-static coating helps prevent dust settling on the sensor during lens changes.

    Tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

    Tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

    High resolution screen with tilt capability allows perfect framing of otherwise impossible over-head or low-angle shots.

    Audio recording and monitoring functions

    During movie recording and playback, you can directly monitor sound using the built-in headphone jack. On-screen audio level monitoring is also available, or connect to professional microphones and audio mixers with the optional XLR terminal adaptor kit.

    High dust and moisture resistance

    Durability-enhancing measures engineered into the design include sealing around the buttons and dials, as well as a protective double-layered body structure that tightly interlocks panels and components.

    Substantial, ergonomic grip

    The α7s is 25% less bulky than leading DSLRs, but still features a full-size grip for all-day shooting comfort.

    Strong and light magnesium alloy body

    Strong and light magnesium alloy body

    Thanks to using magnesium alloy, the world's lightest structural metal, the α7s weighs 489 grams with battery—far lighter that other high-performance cameras—but has the durability for years of performance.

    See your options: Quick Navi Pro and custom buttons

    Quick Navi Pro displays all major shooting options on the LCD screen so you can rapidly confirm settings and make adjustments as desired without searching through dedicated menus. Button customization lets you shoot just the way you like, with frequently used functions assigned to the customizable buttons of your choice.

    One-touch remote and one-touch sharing

    One-touch remote and one-touch sharing

    One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing Imaging Edge Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

      12.2MP 35mm full-frame sensor gives top image quality

      12.2MP 35mm full-frame sensor gives top image quality

      A huge 35mm full frame sensor offers 50x more surface area than a conventional compact camera sensor. The larger suface area means vastly better sensitivity for low-light shooting as well as fine control over depth of field. Paired with great optics, Sony's full frame sensor is ideal for creative, commercial, and landscape photography.

      Ultra-high sensitivity up to ISO 409600

      Expand your still and movie capabilities with the ultra-high sensitivity range from ISO 50 to 409600 for still images and 100 to 409600 for movies. High ISO lets you choose to shoot without unnatural flash illumination and allows faster shutter speeds (to freeze motion) even in low light--ideal for sports on an overcast day.

      BIONZ™ X for superior detail and texture

      BIONZ™ X for superior detail and texture

      All digital cameras need to convert the light captured by their sensor to a beautiful digital photograph. The engine that powers this conversion is just as important as your lens and a high-resolution sensor--so Sony developed the remarkable BIONZ(tm) X processor, allowing more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations, and lower noise while shooting both photos and movies.

      High-quality video with the XAVC S format

      High-quality video with the XAVC S format

      The high-bit-rate XAVC S format is provided for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional movie makers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to bring about consumer-friendly editing and file sizes.

      Multiple recording formats provide video versatility

      Shoot to suit, with a range of video formats available. Capture using the high bitrate AVCHD or XAVC S codec for editing and playback on big screens; or choose the MP4 mode for quick uploading and sharing. Capture motion at up to 24p frame rates for dramatic slow motion possibilities.

      Full-frame filmmaking capability

      Full-frame filmmaking capability

      Professional quality moviemaking in the palm of your hand. Capture stunning images, even in low light thanks to the premium Exmor CMOS sensor. Then enjoy the flexibility to add external audio capture plus off-board video monitoring and recording, all designed to put professional creation in reach of anyone.

      Clean HDMI output

      Monitor and capture uncompressed video using the clean HDMI output. Simultaneously record video to onboard memory cards in playback-friendly compressed formats, as well as to an external recorder in your choice of formats and bitrates, for ultimate professional production flexibility.

      Professional gamma setting

      The S-Log2 is a proprietary Sony gamma setting featured in commercial video equipment, and incorporated here. Invaluble for professionals seeking post-production flexibility, this preset Picture Profile offers up to 14 stops of dynamic range - enough latitude to capture all the detail in both deep shadow and bright sunlight.

      Pro-level time code and user bit video functions

      An essential tool on multi-camera shoots, timecode dramatically speeds up editing where several cameras need to be syncronised. Both Record Run, which advances timecode only while recording, and Free Run, with continuous timecode advancement are supported. Additionally a User Bit feature lets you add identifying information (such as scene and take numbers) alongside the timecode.

      Picture Profile for pre-shoot settings

      Fine-tune the look of your movies before shooting by adjusting gradation (black level, gamma and black gamma), color adjustment (color mode, intensity, color tone and depth), basic color (gamma and color mode) and more. Adjusted parameters can be saved along with other settings as a profile, and up to seven profiles can be stored for later recall.

      120fps at HD resolution for super slo-mo video

      When shooting movies in the Super-35mm equivalent (APS-C) crop mode, this camera supports high-frame-rate 120fps shooting at HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels). This remarkable capability broadens your expressive options since a movie shot at this frame rate can be played back at 24p to create stunning 5x slow-motion effects.

      Enhanced Fast Hybrid Autofocus captures action

      Enhanced Fast Hybrid Autofocus (AF) is comprised of a number of features: Phase-detection AF (bringing the subject into focus), contrast-detection AF (fine-tuning focus points), and Spatial Object Detection (which estimates subject movement). They all work together seamlessly to let you capture a fast-moving subject with perfect sharpness.

      Preview your camera settings and effects in real-time even when using the viewfinder. Unlike optical viewfinders, you can compose black and white photos or preview exposure adjustments before pressing the shutter. Plus, features like 100% frame coverage, wide viewing angle, information display modes, peaking function, and focus magnification will significantly enhance how you shoot.

      Comprehensive anti-dust system

      To keep your photos blemish free, an anti-dust mechanism vibrates ultrasonically whenever you switch off the camera--thus removing any particles adhering to the image sensor. Additionally, an anti-static coating helps prevent dust settling on the sensor during lens changes.

      Tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

      Tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

      High resolution screen with tilt capability allows perfect framing of otherwise impossible over-head or low-angle shots.

      Audio recording and monitoring functions

      During movie recording and playback, you can directly monitor sound using the built-in headphone jack. On-screen audio level monitoring is also available, or connect to professional microphones and audio mixers with the optional XLR terminal adaptor kit.

      High dust and moisture resistance

      Durability-enhancing measures engineered into the design include sealing around the buttons and dials, as well as a protective double-layered body structure that tightly interlocks panels and components.

      Substantial, ergonomic grip

      The α7s is 25% less bulky than leading DSLRs, but still features a full-size grip for all-day shooting comfort.

      Strong and light magnesium alloy body

      Strong and light magnesium alloy body

      Thanks to using magnesium alloy, the world's lightest structural metal, the α7s weighs 489 grams with battery—far lighter that other high-performance cameras—but has the durability for years of performance.
