Sony has announced its newest DSLR camera, the A7C, which is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony’s Alpha range. It will be taking on Panasonic’s Lumix Z5 and Nikon’s Z5 with almost the same price range.
Compared to the A7, the new A7C has a more compact body and an electronic viewfinder on the back. The 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor comes with built-in image stabilization and is capable of up to 4k 30 FPS and 1080p 120 FPS video recording. It can manage 10fps burst shots with autofocus and has an ISO range of up to 51,200.
The new kit lens that Sony has designed for the A7C makes it the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera. It offers up to 28-60mm f4-5.6 zoom which is only 45mm long when retracted. The compact camera measures 124.0mm x 71.1mm x 59.7mm and weighs only 500 grams.
As for ports, there is a single USB-C port, a UHS-II SD card slot, and separate mic and headphone inputs. The Sony A7C will go for sale next month for $1,799 for the camera only and $2099 with the new kit zoom lens. This is $200 less than the A7 III from 2018, but since that one is a couple of years old, it is available for discounted prices at the moment and should be a better option for some.
