Sony A7C has just been announced and is touted as the ‘world’s smallest and lightest’ full-frame camera. Despite the smaller footprint compared to the Sony A7 III it still features a 24.2-megapixel sensor, in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), and 4K video recording. It also supports advanced shooting modes such as S-Log, HLG picture profiles, and real-time eye-autofocus (Eye AF).
Sony A7C pricing and availability
The Sony A7C will be available in late October for $1,800 (roughly Rs. 1,32,000). It will also be available with the FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 zoom lens for about $2,100 (Rs. 1,54,160).
Sony A7C specifications
The Sony A7C features a 24.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, in a magnesium alloy body. It has a native ISO range of 100-51,200, burst shooting of up to 10fps, and 5-axis IBIS.
