Sony has announced the A7C, a brand new full-frame camera that is incredibly compact and lightweight. The A7C looks more like one of the company’s APS-C cameras than an A7, and it’s quite impressive that Sony managed to include a full-frame sensor in such a small body.
Specs-wise, the A7C resembles the A7III quite a bit. It features a 24MP full-frame sensor, in-body image stabilization, 10 fps burst shooting, 4K video recording at up to 30 fps and 1080p recording at 120 fps. The biggest addition to the A7C is a flip-out screen, which is a great feature, especially for videographers. Unfortunately, there’s no option to shoot 10-bit video like on the brand new A7SIII, but that’s to be expected considering this camera is geared towards enthusiasts more so than professionals.
The camera weighs just 509 grams or 1.35 lbs (with included battery and memory card), measures 124 mm x 71.1m,m x 59.7mm, and is weather-sealed. We should also note that the A7C has one SD card slot, compared to two on the A7III.
Sony A7C will retail for $1,799 body-only or about $200 less than the A7III. If you pair it with Sony’s new 28-60mm f/4-5.6 compact zoom lens, the price goes up to $2,099. The camera will start shipping next month!
