All the advantages of a 35mm full-frame image sensor and lens interchangeability are now in a compact body – without compromising on image quality, shooting comfort, functionality or AF performance. Whether capturing still images or movies, the extraordinary Sony Alpha A7 Compact System Camera makes full-frame photography possible.

  • 24.3-megapixel 35mm full-frame Exmor™ CMOS sensor
  • BIONZ X™ image processing engine
  • Meticulously crafted controls within a compact body
  • Enhanced Fast Hybrid AF
  • High-contrast, high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder™
  • Full HD movie recording with advanced audio functions


Bigger sensor, even more professional pictures
The full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor is same size as a 35mm film frame. It’s more than twice the area of the APS-C image sensor in many DSLR cameras, and many times larger than your ordinary compact camera’s sensor. Capturing far more light, it’s the key to flawless, pro-quality pictures. You’ll really see the difference with superb detail, colour and contrast, plus dramatically reduced image noise.

An eye for the finest details
From atmospheric portraits to dramatic landscapes and vibrant street scenes – discover a new world of detail with the full-frame α7 with 24.3 effective megapixels. The α7R takes you to even greater heights of creative expression with its full-frame 36.4 effective megapixel sensor and no optical low-pass filter. You’ll experience uncompromising clarity in every frame.

Always focused
Don’t miss those once-in-a-lifetime picture opportunities. Fast Intelligent AF works in conjunction with the powerful new BIONZ X image processor to deliver blazingly quick, accurate autofocus that effortlessly tracks moving objects. The a7 adds Hybrid AF technology to freeze fast-moving athletes, wildlife or lively children with a crisply-focused burst of images at up to 5 frames per second. (NB: a7R max. shooting speed is 4 fps).

Beauty in your hand
It’s a game-changing blend of power and portability that serious photographers have been waiting for. Crafted in tough magnesium alloy, dust and moisture resistant and weighing just 407g, the α7R is the world’s smallest, lightest 35mm full-frame interchangeable-lens camera.

Always in control
Frame shots through the high-contrast, detail-packed XGA OLED Tru-Finder. Tilt the bright 3.0-type 921K dot LCD for a different perspective, high or low. Craft the perfect image with comfortably-placed buttons and dials – 9 customisable buttons and 45 assignable functions. Add accessories with the Multi Interface Shoe and broaden your horizons even further.

For serious movie makers
Shoot flawless Full HD video at up to 50 progressive frames per second, with full P/A/S/M exposure control. View your footage live as it’s being recorded on an external monitor screen, just like a film director would. Pro-style movies deserve sound to match: fine-tune your audio with adjustable record levels and metering.

Easy sharing, no wires
Connect with Wi-Fi and transfer photos wirelessly to your iPad, iPhone or Android smartphone. And if you’re using an Xperia™ or NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet, just one touch is all it takes to connect with your mobile. Install PlayMemories Mobile Version 3.0 on your phone and use it as a handy remote to fire the camera’s shutter.
