Sony a7C Body Black Summary

The ultra compact Sony a7C has been redesigned from the ground up to be the smallest full-frame interchangeable lens camera in the E-mount range. The size and weight is similar to the a6600 body at just 424g. yet provides professional features associated with full-frame cameras. Custom developments for the compact model include a new 5-axis stabilisation system and new compact shutter unit.

The a7C camera is aimed at hybrid shooters, Youtube content creators, travel shooters and anyone who requires full-frame capabilities in a tiny body, with access to the comprehensive Sony lens ecosystem. A fully articulating screen, mic jack and headphone jack along with improved dust and moisture resistance ensure memories can be captured in high quality, anywhere, during any weather.

The 35mm Exmor R CMOS sensor captures beautiful 24.2 megapixel stills, 4K video at 30p 8-Bit in SLOG + HLG with impressive ISO range of 100-51200 (and higher when extended). Dynamic range records up to 15EV stops, ideal for higher contrast scenes and low light captures.

Sony is famed for their accomplished phase-detection autofocus system and this black a7C (also available in silver here) delivers the latest Real-time Eye, Face and Animal AF detect and tracking features. The a7C is also ready for action, capable of bursting to an impressive 10fps with up to 115 frame buffer with compressed RAW files. All day shooting is possible thanks to the impressive capabilities of the NP-FZ100 battery, where a single charge will capture up to 740 images and over 3 hours of movies

  • 22% lighter body than the Sony a7 iii

Our Verdict

Sony has consistently been at the forefront of developing mirrorless camera technology and the a7C joins their growing range as the new ‘Compact’ model. Thanks to the small form factor the Alpha 7C generates universal appeal amongst content creators on the go who want to shoot high quality 4K movies and also capture detailed stills images. Recording footage and photos whilst travelling or when out and about is supported by the high capacity battery, and the Bionz X processor also facilitates no overheat extended video capture. Sony’s latest AF technologies ensure subjects are acquired and tracked easily from 693 focus points with Eye Detect, Face Detect as well as proficient animal eye detect AF. Photographers who capture rapid sequences gain 10fps high speed shooting in RAW, which is sufficient for action of virtually any type.

The fully articulating LCD touchscreen ensures awkward angles and selfie shooting, including pieces to camera are readily available, perfect for Youtube vlogging or difficult to reach shots. Colour reproduction is on par with the ultra-high resolution a7Riv, demonstrating the capabilities which this compact model is capable of. Professionals and keen enthusiasts who require a slimmer, lighter and more compact full-frame body now have the a7C as a highly compelling option to consider.
