  • UHD 4K30p Video with HLG & S-Log3 Gammas
  • 2.36m-Dot Tru-Finder OLED EVF
  • 3.0" 922k-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization
  • ISO 204800 and 10 fps Shooting
  • Built-In Wi-Fi and NFC, Dual SD Slots
  • USB Type-C Port, Weather-Sealed Design

Back-illuminated 24.2MP full-frame sensor

The 35mm full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor features 24.2-megapixel resolution, back illumination, and gapless on-chip lens design for extraordinary sensitivity and dynamic range. Two times faster data readout speed is achieved through copper wires and front-end LSI.

Entirely enhanced image processing system

A combination of new-generation image processing system and a new sensor achieves an up to 1.5-stop improvement in image quality. A wide ISO sensitivity range of up to ISO 51200 is standard, and approx. up to 15-stop dynamic range at low sensitivity settings is realised. Upgraded Detail Reproduction and Area-specific Noise Reduction join to suppress noise and maintain a sense of high overall resolution. Colour reproduction, especially of skin and nature scenes, has also been dramatically improved. The α7 III also supports 14-bit RAW output even during silent shooting/continuous shooting.

Wider, faster, more steadfast AF performance

An evolved image processing system and α9 camera AF algorithms optimised for the α7 III improve AF speed, precision, and tracking performance. 693 phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast-detection AF points provide high-density wide-area coverage. AF speed improved by up to twice and more precise AF tracking performance let you capture and maintain focus on a quickly moving subject in unpredictable motion. The α7 III also autofocuses reliably down to EV-3 brightness.

Focal-plane phase-detection AF supports A-mount lenses

Phase-detection AF can operate even when an A-mount lens is mounted to the α7 III via an LA-EA3 adaptor. The 693-point focal-plane phase-detection AF system provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high-performance tracking.

Eye AF now supporting AF-C

Eye AF newly supports AF-C mode with greater precision that dramatically enhances portrait shooting, plus higher AF speed that makes it easier to shoot a portrait of a moving subject, even if the subject looks down and away from the camera, or is backlit with face in partial darkness. The α7 III supports Eye AF for A-mount lenses mounted via an adaptor.

Enhanced operability for continuous shooting

Images captured in continuous shooting mode can be displayed as a group, and such groups can be deleted or protected in one quick operation. Furthermore, with higher burst capacity and UHS-II media compatibility, the camera significantly streamlines the operation of writing data to memory cards. The Fn button and menu button can be operated to change settings immediately after continuous shooting, while data writing is in progress.

Up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking

With new shutter charge unit and image processing system refinements, the α7 III can shoot continuously at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking (up to 8 fps with minimal display lag in live-view continuous shooting mode) for easy, stable shooting of even intensely active subjects. Up to approximately 177 JPEG images (standard) in full resolution, 89 compressed RAW images, or 40 uncompressed RAW images can be captured in one continuous burst. An electronic shutter allows silent, vibration-free shooting of wildlife and other sensitive situations when even slight noise can mean missing an ideal shot.

Anti-flicker shooting

Flicker from fluorescent and other artificial lighting is automatically detected and shutter action is timed to minimise the flicker’s effect on still images. This suppresses exposure and colour anomalies at the top and bottom of images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as exposure and colour inconsistency between continuous shots, so you can take images indoors with more confidence.

Supports a wide range of needs in HDR movie production

Supporting a wide range of HDR movie production needs, the α7 III offers S-Log3 as well as S-Log2 gamma curves, for great flexibility to fine-tune images as desired through colour grading operation in post-production, and a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile for instant HDR workflow. However, colour grading is not required to enjoy instant playback of high-quality, true-to-life images with no blocked shadows or blown highlights on an HDR (HLG) compatible TV.

Touch screen LCD for easy instant focus operation

A 3.0-type 922K-dot LCD screen offers touch screen operation and bright, clear, finely detailed views even outdoors. Use Touch Focus to focus instantly on a point that you touch on the screen and Touch Pad to drag the focus frame with a fingertip on the LCD as you monitor the shot through the viewfinder. This LCD tilts up by as much as 107°, and down by as much as 41° for flexible, convenient camera holding and shot monitoring.

In-body 5-axis image stabilisation with 5.0-stop shutter speed advantage

This comprehensive system compensates for five types of camera shake that tend to blur images: pitch/yaw shake when shooting at longer focal lengths; X/Y shake in close-up (including macro) shooting; and roll shake when recording stills at night and movies. It effectively achieves 5.0-stop-faster shutter speed, so the α7 III can take full advantage of its high-quality imaging capability and live-view image performance. Furthermore, it functions with A-mount lenses attached via mount adaptor, as well as E-mount lenses.

Dual slots with UHS-II compatibility

This camera provides two media slots for SD card (UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing) and SD card/Memory Stick, respectively. Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data; separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies; and copy data from one card to the other. The memory card cover is lockable to prevent it from being opened unintentionally.

Simply put, the Sony A7 III is the finest example of the most affordable full-frame camera on the market. It’s a sensational camera for the money and compliments the ever-evolving Sony A7-series quite brilliantly.

TechRadar UK

The Alpha A7 III is a brilliant camera that ticks a lot of boxes for many photographers. Sony has taken some of the best bits from its flagship Alpha A9 and A7R III, and distilled them into a single camera that offers a fantastic mix of performance and image quality.

ePHOTOzine

Announcing the Sony Alpha A7 Mark III - Sony had the clever idea of telling everyone, that this was "the b a s i c model" in the Sony Alpha range, and pretty much everyone published this, because it was quite frankly a little bit ridiculous.

Photography BLOG

Sony referred to the A7 III as a "basic model" during their early promotion, whether jokingly or not, but the A7 III is far from being basic. Indeed, it's so well-specced on paper that it surprised a lot of people who weren't expecting such a well-appointed camera, and thankfully that promise has...

Regardless of whether you shoot landscapes, wildlift, travel, sports or portraits, the Sony Alpha 7 III has plenty to offer

Practical Photography

Sony’s game-changer, the Alpha 7 III packs incredibly advanced features into an affordable full-frame body. You’ll find a 35mm 24.2MP BSI sensor, and an outstanding 693-point phase detection autofocusing system, borrowed from the Alpha 9 , as well as the impressive tracking algorithms and Eye AF.

I have owned this camera for nearly 2 years now and I have found it to perform excellently both for still photography and video. I primarily use it for wildlife photography and usually have it paired with the Sony FE 200-600mm f5.6-6.3 G OSS Lens which offers excellent results.

Wex Photo Video

The Sony a7iii is a great camera. The battery life has significantly improved, focusing options are extensive and sharpness of images (especially with the Sony Zeiss 55mm Sonnar T) is excellent. Colour capture and dynamic range in raw are impressive. High iso images generally control noise well.

WEX

I purchased a Sony A7iii with Zeiss 55mm lens at the end of 2019 and have used it extensively for 4k video, alongside my Sony A6300, Canon and Osmo Action ever since. The A7iii is the most cinematographic of my cameras, producing very romantic, high quality almost three dimensional video images that...

Argos

I changed from the Sony A7r ii to this model and have been delighted with the way it handles, speed of focussing, image quality, the customisation capability and its pairing with my 24 to 105 Sony lens. The dynamic range and lowlight capabilities are top drawer. I am delighted!

Wilkinson Cameras

Excellent camera for pro and amateur photographers alike. So easy to figure out and not to mention very light and comfortable in the hand

Very

Not a camera for anyone who isn't serious about photography. This camera is an investment. It's one of the best pieces of kit on the market and has been a pleasure to use so far. For your average user - it's overly complicated which unless you're a serious amateur or professional you'll never use...

Brilliant camera. Have been using Nikon DSLR cameras for around 10 years but this is something else! It has relit my passion for photography and is currently used as my main body. Obviously the next step would be to upgrade to an A7RIV, but this is an all round fantastic camera.

WEX

This is the third a7III I have bought, upgrading previous for an a7RIV and a a7SIII, even though both of these upgrades are great in their own way i still love the cast iron solid performance of the a7III, My only real criticism is the screen not being up to the standards of the Canon R6, that may...

Wex Photo Video

Coming from a Canon 5Dii the speed of focus is amazing, and the size is great with no performance loss. Face tracking in video is great, especially when solo shooting (i use it for tutorial videos at work) with a shallow DoF.

An exciting upgrade from the previous Sony a7II, although the EVF could have seen improvement..
