Overview

Our take on the Sony Alpha a7 III (no lens included)

The Sony a7 III packs just about everything you could ever need to capture gorgeous photos and videos. And it's less than half the size of any DSLR that comes anywhere close to matching its performance. A new 24.2-megapixel back-illuminated full-frame sensor combines with an updated processing engine for excellent resolution and speedy operation.

A compact powerhouse

The Sony a7 III packs just about everything you could ever need to capture gorgeous photos and videos. And it's less than half the size of any DSLR that comes anywhere close to matching its performance. A new 24.2-megapixel back-illuminated full-frame sensor combines with an updated processing engine for excellent resolution and speedy operation.

Keep up with moving subjects

The a7 III's responsive Fast Hybrid autofocus system gives you clear action shots with powerful tracking that keeps moving subjects in sharp focus throughout the frame. The a7 III can capture clear, crisp action sequences at up to 10 frames per second with full autofocus and auto exposure tracking.

Create stunning 4K movies

The a7 III has advanced features for recording richly detailed movies in 4K or Full HD resolution. The camera's Picture Profile system includes S-Log 2 and S-Log 3 gamma curves for shooting wide dynamic range scenes. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) recording allows for direct playback on compatible 4K/HDR displays without the need for post-processing.

A clean HDMI output sends uncompressed movie data to an external recorder or monitor. You can keep recording internally to the camera even when using this function.

Keep it steady

The a7 III's built-in five-axis image stabilization system helps you take tack-sharp photos and shake-free videos. This powerful system compensates for camera shake from five directions, giving you freedom to shoot handheld, zoom in on distant subjects, and capture sharp images in low light.

Sony A7 III initial user review by GRANDPASOONG

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sony A7 III initial user review by GRANDPASOONG I have been waiting for up grade my A7 with great patience, alas here comes the A7 III. Received the preordered camera on April 12 from Crutchfield, thanks for your excellent service, I must be the few to received the first shipment. The package consists of camera body, a battery, a charging plug-wire and the usual useless instructions but no battery charger. The battery DOA, last less than 3 minutes in operation, it took around three and half hours to fully charge it. The A7 III fit nicely in hands, the enlarged grip help the handling of the camera, the build quality is excellent but I have doubt about the weather sealing of this body. The camera is compact in designing yet feels solid but on heavy side. The first thing to do is setup up the camera functions buy working the Fn manual and assigning the desired function to the customer keys. Since I like to use some manual focus lenses, the way I setup those functions may not applied to others. Following are my settings. Fn Button Upper row: 1.Center Lock-on AF 2.Face Priority in AF 3.SteadyShot Adjust 4.SteadyS Focal Len 5.Photo File Format 6.Photo Silent Shooting Second Row: 1.Zebra Display 2.Zebra Level 3.Picture Profile 4.DRO/Auto HDR 5.Prioritize Rec. Media 6.Touch Operation Customer Key In Photo Mode Assign AEL button to Eye AF Control Wheel to Creative Style Customer button 4 to APS-

Pros: Enough said

Cons: No battery charger No panorama shooting No time-elapse?! Questionable weather sealing of the camera body.
