Sony A7R III Preview

Sony took by surprise the camera world with its new model Sony 7R III, one of its best digital mirrorless cameras. Even though the price is high (a bit over $3,200), the new camera is worth every single penny.

The Sony A7R II uses a full-frame, 42.4-megapixel sensor and is quite similar to the earlier announced A9. The new model shoots 10frames per second (Jpeg or Raw) and has autofocus tracking, with no risk for shutter blackout, pretty much as A9. The ressemblences to the A9 continue and the Sony A7R III also comes with an impressive 3.69 million-dot EVF.

The fast and solid autofocus on the Sony A7R III is great when you’re on the move. We also notice the 399 phase detection autofocus points and the 425 contrast AF points, which, according to Sony, make the A7R III twice as fast as the A7R II in poor lit situations.

The updated BIONZ X processor is 1.8 time faster so the whole experience with an A7R III is a lot faster.

You’re going to be able to shoot for longer when using the A7R III since the new model uses the high-capacity battery, just like in the case of A9. The A7R III comes with the A 9’s AF joystick.

If you liked the A9 but didn’t buy it because of the price ($4,500), you’re going to find the A7R III quite a steal for the price ($3,200).

Able to shoot in more difficult and low lit areas, the A 7R III uses 5-axis image stabilization to cancel out camera shake. It has an ISO range of 100-32000 that expands up to ISO 50-102,400. As for the sensor, it gives up to 15 stops of dynamic range.

Sony A7R III is a great tool for getting the moving images and shoots 4K footage at 24 or 30 frames per second, and 1080 p video at 120 frames per second. It’s easy for you to transfer the high-resolution stills and movies since the A7R III comes with USB Type-C connector.

The list of features continues with a touchscreen, headphone port for audio monitoring and a upgraded viewfinder as well.
