Best Battery for Sony A7III

Although the battery life on new Sony A7 cameras is much better than before, it would be our suggestion to grab a spare Sony NP-FZ100 battery, especially if you’re shooting in the field for hours or travelling a lot.

Also, since A7III doesn’t ship with an external battery charger, it may be wise to grab one, so you can charge both batteries at once.

The in-body image stabilization on the A7III is pretty good, although not as great as on some cameras with smaller sensors like the Panasonic GH5 or Olympus OMD E-M1 Mark II. If you’re not moving, IBIS from the Sony A7III takes care of most shakes and video looks pretty good. However, for moving shoots you still need a good gimbal. Here are some of the best Sony A7III gimbals.

Best Tripods for Sony A7III

Since the A7III is a rather compact mirrorless camera, it would be best to pair it with a compact tripod, unless you really need a heavy duty tripod for serious video work, for example. In our opinion, the best Sony A7III tripod is Manfrotto Befree Advanced Alpha. This is a special version of the Befree Advanced Travel Tripod designed exclusively for Sony Alpha cameras, with a design plate that matches Sony A7III and A7RIII bodies.
