Explore a new world of imaging expression with the Sony A7S Mirrorless Digital Camera. It combines phenomenal sensitivity up to 409600 for stills and videos with supremely low noise and the world's first full-frame sensor capable of full pixel readout without pixel binning for 4K HDMI video output while utilising the full width of the sensor. Professional video functions satisfy serious photographers and videographers, plus everything is precision-packed in the world's smallest interchangeable lens digital camera for unparalleled mobility.


Ultra-high sensitivity 35mm full-frame sensor delivers ultra wide dynamic range for high quality stills and videos
Sony’s new 12.2 megapixel image sensor achieves awe-inspiring sensitivity from ISO 50 to 409600 and a wide dynamic range with extremely low noise throughout the entire ISO range. So you can capture what could never be captured before in both still images and videos. High shutter speed usage in low lighting, for example, is now practical at last thanks to accumulated Sony image sensor technology including extra-large pixels and sophisticated light capturing technology.

The world’s first full-frame full pixel readout without pixel binning for video output while utilising the full width of the sensor
The world’s first full-frame sensor capable of full pixel readout without pixel binning for videos and 4K HDMI video output (QFHD: 3840 x 2160), ensures the highest possible image quality. You can record Full HD videos at 60p (50p), 60i (50i), 30p (25p), and 24p frame rates, output 4K videos at a 30p (25p) or 24p frame rate, and output Full HD videos at any frame rate except 30p (25p). You can also switch from full-frame to APS-C (Super 35 mm equivalent) if desired.

XAVC S format
The Sony A7S features ahigh-bit-rate XAVC S format for serious videographers. Available for the first time in a camera, it enables Full HD image recording at 50 Mbps for extremely high-quality expression and minimal noise. It also uses the Long GOP (Group of Pictures) data compression method to realise efficient video recording.

Clean HDMI output for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels) videos
Non-compressed image output is now possible with the Sony A7S at 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution with selectable 30p and 24p frame rates. You can select 4K or Full HD output from a menu. The 4K output capability allows recording of high-quality 4K images by a 4K-compatible recorder, as well as 4K output directly to a compatible monitor or TV.

High-speed, high-precision Fast Intelligent AF in light as low as EV -4
Thanks to the Sony A7S's ultra-high sensitivity image sensor that enables low noise signal gain in dim lighting, Fast Intelligent AF has been specially enhanced to provide extremely fast AF performance in low light conditions (as low as EV -4). In fact, it achieves top-level AF speed in the full-frame category through the support of various advances including lightning-fast BIONZ X, high-speed full-frame image sensor readout, and a Spatial Object Detection AF algorithm that conducts focusing analysis in real-time using spatial frequency information to optimally control the lens drive.

High-end performance meets robust design in the world’s smallest body
The A7S packs all the solid reliability and functionality of a larger camera in a supremely compact and lightweight design. Operation is simple and straightforward thanks to a refined user interface, clear and bright viewfinder, customisable buttons and precision controls. In any shooting environment, you can fully depend on the fast, high-precision performance of the A7S.

High-contrast, high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder™
The XGA OLED Tru-Finder of the Sony A7S offers faithful reproduction and impressive visibility that contributes to stress free, intuitive operation whether shooting still images or videos. You can accurately monitor what will appear in your final images because it faithfully displays the effects of your various camera settings. Moreover, an advanced 3-lens optical system ensures rich tonal gradation and extremely high contrast. High-end features like 100% frame coverage and a wide viewing angle are also provided.

Connect to smartphones and tablets with one touch!
You can instantly transfer a photo or MP4 video to your Android™ smartphone or tablet by simply touching it with the Sony A7S - thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and NFC™ (Near Field Communication). The new Dual Video REC function further contributes to easy video sharing by recording in the XAVC S/AVCHD and MP4 format at the same time. Touching your mobile device with the camera can also activate Smart Remote Embedded, which enables remote control of the camera from a mobile device and newly features a video recording start/stop function.
