New 7C Series R Concept
In a mission to blend high-resolution, full-frame photography with the demand for increased mobility, Sony has introduced their latest 7C series R line of cameras. This innovative concept stems from the universal need to prioritise timing and capture the fleeting moments often lost to perfecting parameters and composition. The benefits of this masterful combination extend across portrait, landscape, and street photography, making it easier for creatives to simply point and shoot. Once captured, users can immediately crop their image in-body, with options for full-frame and APS-C-sized formats, including lossless compressed RAW (L, M, S). This feature makes it easier to prepare a 12 MP image for print or crop down to just 6 MP for optimised smartphone viewing.
For portrait shoots, the ability to crop later helps reduce the psychological distance between the photographer and the subject, keeping them engaged and encouraging natural expressions. The smaller camera size (124.0 x 71.1 x 63.4 mm) also makes the Alpha &c R more inconspicuous for street photography, going undetected by passers-by and helping maintain authentic results. And, thanks to its 515g weight, the Alpha 7C R is incredibly mobile and easy to transport as you travel, hike, or climb to capture the perfect panoramic landscape.
Outstanding Image Quality
The Alpha 7C R full-frame mirrorless camera is built for high-resolution art-based photography thanks to its new back-illuminated Exmor R 61 MP sensor and BionZ XR Processor. With this industry-leading tech, the Alpha 7C R offers much higher sensitivity and a wider dynamic range (ISO 100-32000, expandable to ISO 50-102400 for stills). As an upgrade from the Alpha 7C, this camera boasts 5-axis optical in-body image stabilisation for a 7.0-stop advantage, providing more precise shake detection and control. The Alpha 7C R also introduces evolved exposure control for natural, smooth skin tones and improved colour reproduction for more accurate white balance in trickier lighting.
Advanced Autofocus Technology
Equipped with the best technology Sony has to offer, the Alpha 7C R boasts an upgraded AI-based subject recognition system for real-time autofocusing. This powerful processing unit has 693 phase-detection points, a dense 79% frame coverage, and is effective down to EV-4, allowing users to shoot comfortably in lowlight scenes. Thanks to its improved AI-based learning, the Alpha 7C R can identify the most minor subjects, including everything from insects, birds, and animals to humans, cars and planes. It can even analyse the subject's pose, ensuring focus is never lost on their eyes, even as they turn away. And, with up to 8fps continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking, users will never miss that all-important shot.
Professional 4K Video
Whilst the Alpha 7C R packs a punch for art-based photography, it also lends nicely to cinematic 4K movie recording, providing creatives with the tools required for elevated storytelling. When switching to moving images, users can access 4K 60P recording with full pixel readout, 4K 30P 6.2K oversampling in super 35 format, 10-bit colour depth, 4:2:2 colour sampling, and support for XAVC S-I/XAVC HS formats. Sony also helps streamline post-production with various creative looks, S-cinetone picture profiles, and Log recording with LUT support. And, with convenient functions like auto framing, active mode image stabilisation, breathing compensation, and AF assist, Sony positions the Alpha 7C R as a serious contender for hybrid shooters.
Following the popularity of touch controls introduced with the ZV-E1, the Alpha 7C R benefits from the same intuitive interface that mimics the simplicity of smartphone navigation. In addition to the touch shutter, focus, and tracking, you can also operate the menu using touch. A simple swipe will give you access to all the controls, allowing you to set parameters before swiping the menu away to get back to shooting. Sony also includes a vari-angle screen, upgraded XGA OLED EVF, and an additional front dial to reinforce this seamless user experience. Combined with the improved grip, dust and moisture resistance, and small size of the Alpha 7C R, this sturdy, compact camera is perfect for photographers who need confidence in their kit when shooting in different environments.
The Sony Alpha 7C R has a variety of ways to connect, create, and share your content everywhere. For wireless options, this camera offers Wi-Fi/NFC and Bluetooth connectivity. It is compatible with the Creator's Cloud platform for collaborative production (including tools like Master Cut (Beta) for movie editing and Ci Media Cloud), file transfers, and remote control. Wired terminals include a USB-C port, a micro HDMI port, a 3.5mm minijack, and a multi-interface shoe for seamless cable-free pairing with all kinds of accessories. The Alpha 7C R also transforms into a high-quality 3840 x 2160 (15p / 30p) webcam for online meetings and streaming.
A Step Towards Sustainability
As part of Sony's Road to Zero program, focusing on achieving a zero environmental footprint throughout the life cycle of their products, the Alpha 7C R takes another step towards a more sustainable future.

Sony's production facilities in Thailand are also operating on 100% renewable energy - a big step in the right direction for larger manufacturers.
