Bigger sensor, even more professional pictures
The full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor is same size as a 35mm film frame. It’s more than twice the area of the APS-C image sensor in many DSLR cameras, and many times larger than your ordinary compact camera’s sensor. Capturing far more light, it’s the key to flawless, pro-quality pictures. You’ll really see the difference with superb detail, colour and contrast, plus dramatically reduced image noise.
An eye for the finest details
From atmospheric portraits to dramatic landscapes and vibrant street scenes – discover a new world of detail with the α7R which takes you to even greater heights of creative expression with its full-frame 36.4 effective megapixel sensor and no optical low-pass filter. You’ll experience uncompromising clarity in every frame.
Don’t miss those once-in-a-lifetime picture opportunities. Fast Intelligent AF works in conjunction with the powerful new BIONZ X image processor to deliver blazingly quick, accurate autofocus that effortlessly tracks moving objects. The a7r adds Hybrid AF technology to freeze fast-moving athletes, wildlife or lively children with a crisply-focused burst of images at up to 4 frames per second.
Beauty in your hand
It’s a game-changing blend of power and portability that serious photographers have been waiting for. Crafted in tough magnesium alloy, dust and moisture resistant and weighing just 407g, the α7R is the world’s smallest, lightest 35mm full-frame interchangeable-lens camera.

Hotly awaited by professional photographers and enthusiasts, the α7R from Sony sets an exciting new benchmark in digital imaging. A game-changing blend of imaging power and portability, this mirrorless camera redefines the creative options of full-frame photography in a palm-sized interchangeable lens camera.
Beautifully styled and easy to hold on lengthy assignments, the α7R is a no-compromise photographic tool that puts the needs of advanced users first. Front and back dials plus a control wheel and exposure compensation dial allow intuitive adjustments while framing shots through the high-contrast, high resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder or on the tiltable 3.0-type LCD screen.
The 35mm full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor incorporates light concentration and photo diode expansion technologies and also features a new ‘gapless’ on-chip lens design that eliminates gaps between adjacent pixels. These advances increase light collection efficiency, achieving outstanding resolution, sensitivity and low noise while circumventing the challenge of decreased pixel size due to the extremely high pixel count.
Together with the powerful new BIONZ X processor, the full-frame sensor also allows the α7R to shoot pro-quality Full HD video. You’ll enjoy rich, beautifully rendered movie footage with sumptuous colours and ultra-low noise, even in low light. Clear Image Zoom has been enhanced for video recording, delivering powerful close-ups without sacrificing pixel count. Pro-style movie features include an audio recording level control and display, plus a ‘clean’ HDMI output that allows video to be viewed on an external monitor or recorded on another device.
The α7R showcases a new Fast Intelligent AF that ensures speedy, accurate autofocus and is designed to be fully customisable to exactly suit your precise photographic demands, with nine customisable buttons and 46 assignable functions. Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, the face will be sharply focused thanks to extremely accurate eye-detection (eye AF) that can prioritise a single pupil.
High-resolution still images can be displayed directly on a 4K television that offers four times the detail of Full HD. Support for TRILUMINOS Colour delivers a stunning palette of rich, natural colours when viewing movies and photos captured with the α7R on a compatible BRAVIA television with TRILUMINOS Display.
With both Wi-Fi with NFC, the α7R offers effortless one-touch wireless connections with your Xperia™ or NFC-compatible Android smartphone or tablet. PlayMemories Camera Apps further enhance your photo experience with a growing range of free and paid apps, spanning exciting new creative effects and filters, utilities and more.
The new ‘Multiple Exposure’ app automatically composites sequential exposures, making it easy to create beautiful and dramatic effects with a choice of pre-set artistic themes as well as manual blending modes.
Pre-installed in the α7R, ‘Smart Remote Control’ controls exposure and shutter release from your smartphone. Great for tripod-mounted group shots and self-portraits, the app also sends photos automatically to your mobile device for on-the-spot sharing.
With a tough magnesium alloy body that’s dust- and moisture-resistant, the α7R weighs in at just 407g (body only) as the world’s smallest, lightest interchangeable lens camera with a full-frame sensor.
Appealing equally to busy photo professionals and advanced amateurs, it also boasts the highest image quality of any α camera to date. The brand-new 36.4-effective megapixel (approx.) full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor delivers levels of detail unprecedented in any camera of its class. The high resolution sensor of the α7R has no optical low-pass filter, ensuring that its extraordinary resolving power is fully exploited. It’s complemented by a new BIONZ X processor – Sony’s latest-generation imaging engine that maximises detail and reduces image noise over a wide ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range (NB: expandable down to ISO 50 and up to ISO 51,200 with Multi-Frame Noise Reduction).
