  • Sony Alpha a7R III Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)

    Proving that speed, resolution, and video capabilities can all coexist, the Alpha a7R III Mirrorless Digital Camera from Sony is a versatile, high-performance camera characterized by not only its resolution, but by its multimedia versatility. Revolving around a full-frame 42.4MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor and updated BIONZ X image processor, the a7R III affords an impressive 10 fps continuous shooting rate along with improved autofocus performance for faster, more reliable subject tracking along with wide frame coverage. This updated Fast Hybrid AF System employs a combination of 399 phase-detection points and 425 contrast-detection areas for quicker acquirement of focus in a variety of lighting conditions, and also maintains focus on subjects more effectively. In addition to speed and AF, the processing improvements also help to realize greater image clarity throughout the sensitivity range from ISO 100-32000, which can further be expanded to ISO 50-102400. Video recording capabilities have also been extended for enhanced quality when recording UHD 4K video with the full width of the full-frame sensor, or when using a Super35 area and 5K oversampling to minimize moiré and aliasing. Additionally, benefitting both stills and video operation, the a7R III retains the 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE sensor-shift image stabilization, which is now effective to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5.5 stops.

    In addition to imaging updates, the a7R III also sports a revised body design, which includes a 3.69m-dot Tru-Finder OLED electronic viewfinder for bright, clear, and realistic eye-level monitoring. A rear 3.0" 1.44m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD is also available for intuitive settings control and to better support working from high and low angles. For greater shooting flexibility, dual SD memory card slots are now featured, and a larger NP-FZ100 battery is also employed to achieve up to approximately 530 shots per charge when using the viewfinder. Suiting the camera's use in trying conditions, the magnesium alloy chassis and extensive weather-sealing also render the a7R III dust- and moisture-resistance

    42.4 MP Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor
    Featuring a back-illuminated design, the full-frame 42.4-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor works with the BIONZ X image processor to offer high-resolution stills and video while minimizing noise and improving speed. This sensor structure works with gapless on-chip lens design and an anti-reflection coating, as well as eliminating the optical low-pass filter, to improve light collection and enhance detail. Also, the copper wiring layer dramatically improves data transmission speed for creating 14-bit, high-resolution 42.4-megapixel stills with a native sensitivity range from ISO 100-32000, which can be further expanded to ISO 50-102400. Also, it enables internal UHD 4K video recording with a wide dynamic range using the full width of the full-frame sensor. The BIONZ X processor also works in conjunction with a high-speed front-end LSI to realize faster processing times along with the ability to capture an impressive 15-stop dynamic range at low sensitivity values.

    The sensor and processor combination also avails fast continuous shooting at up to 10 fps at full resolution, for up to 76 consecutive frames, and with full-time AF/AE when working with either a mechanical shutter or an electronic shutter. If shooting in live view mode, a continuous shooting rate of up to 8 fps is also possible.
    Fast Hybrid AF System
    An evolved 4D FOCUS system now employs a combination of 399 phase-detection points, which cover approximately 68% of the frame, along with 425 contrast-detection areas for reliable and quick autofocus and subject tracking performance. This Fast Hybrid AF System now achieves twice the focusing speed and more reliable tracking compared to previous a7R models, as well as improved low-light focusing response down to -3 EV. The use of phase-detection points also enables the use of A-mount lenses via the optional LA-EA3 or LA-EA1 lens mount adapters with full continuous AF/AE tracking compatibility.

    The apt focus system also lends itself to a variety of focusing functions for refined accuracy, including Lock-on AF, which maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject, and Expand Flexible Spot, which employs neighboring focus points to retain focus on moving subjects even if the originally selected point loses focus. Additionally, Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognized subjects' eyes for portraits and is available in both AF-S and AF-C modes. Autofocus can also be used in conjunction with the Focus Magnifier function for critical focus when homing in on minute subject details. The rear touchscreen can also be used for Touch Focus control, and a Touchpad Focus Control mode lets you use the rear screen intuitively while keeping your eye to the viewfinder.

    For more personalized control over focus, and benefitting working in either vertical or horizontal shooting orientation, the AF area can be switched in orientation to better suit your subject matter. AF tracking sensitivity can also be customized in five steps to match how a subject is moving and frequently used focus point settings can be memorized and recalled with a custom button for faster switching between focus settings.
    5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization
    Packed into the robust a7R III is a 5.5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for five different types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of stills and video. This allows users to confidently use any lens, even adapted lenses, for critical imaging without encountering blur from camera shake.

    For long focal lengths, the system will correct for pitch and yaw adjustments. Macro and high-magnification imagery, on the other hand, will benefit from the inclusion of horizontal and vertical shift compensation. All shooting styles will get usage out of the roll compensation. All 5 axes of stabilization will function at all times, even when used with third-party lenses and adapters or lenses with built-in optical stabilization.
    UHD 4K Video Recording in XAVC S Format
    Internal recording of UHD 4K movies is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps and, based on the Super35mm recording area and effective 5K resolution, oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible, that is void of pixel binning, for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing. Full-frame 4K recording has also been dramatically improved for improved quality when working at mid to high sensitivities to permit full use of the entire sensor width. Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both resolutions utilize the 100 Mbps XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0 sampling. The high-speed, 120 fps recording also enables 4x and 5x slow-motion movie recording with the frame rate set to either 30p or 24p. In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.

    4K video recording also avails the ability to produce 8MP stills during playback by taking a frame grab from a movie and storing it as a separate file.
    Additional Video Features

  • Rode VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System

    The VideoMic with Rycote Lyre Suspension System from Rode is a shotgun microphone that can easily be mounted on a DSLR camera. It features a Rycote suspension system that attaches to the camera's shoe. The VideoMic is lightweight, and when mounted on a camera it does not appear in the frame. The VideoMic can also mount to Rode's boompoles for elevated audio capture. Its supercardioid polar pattern attenuates sounds from the sides. The result is a signal that sounds closer to the camera, even when shooting in noisy environments or at moderate distances.

    The included Rycote Lyre is a non-elasticated suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic. It is more effective at acoustically decoupling microphones from unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than elasticated suspensions. The lyre remains effective at a wide range of temperatures and is virtually indestructible. It will never wear out, sag, snap or require any rethreading to maintain its effectiveness.

    An attached, coiled cable terminates to a 1/8" (3.5mm) mini output connection. The VideoMic features a condenser element that utilizes a standard 9V battery (sold separately). The microphone will run for approximately 100 hours on a single battery.

    Barrel-Canceling Pickup
    The Rode Video Mic functions as a true line+gradient microphone with a supercardioid pattern in the front and a barrel that cancels side audio. The result is maximum pickup of the source in highly ambient and noisy environments.
    Selectable 10 or 20 dB Pad
    When capturing audio in loud environments, the VideoMic offers built-in attenuation. The selectable 10 or 20 dB pad lessens the microphone's sensitivity, allowing it to handle higher SPL levels without sacrificing clarity.
    High-Pass Filter Switch
    A high-pass filter switch eliminates room ambiance and noise below 80 Hz. This results in improved intelligibility while recording around machinery, wind or close proximities.
    Internal Power
    The condenser element is powered with a standard 9V battery for up to 100 hours (approximately).

Sony A7R III Reviews

Alpha a7R III Mirrorless Digital Camera with 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens and Microphone Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 244.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Pro Camera from Sony Make no mistake, this is no consumer dumbed down piece of equipment. My first impression of this camera was I now have to learn 130 menu items which is about double that of my old a7RII. of course such an expansion means more control and flexibility. And, Sony fixed everything most of us complained about, like longer battery life, twin SD cards, faster more accurate focusing, touch screen and several other features too numerous to list here. Since I just got my a7RIII, I really have not put it through its paces. From what I have done, it appears to take better videos and more accurate color on stills. It is well worth the upgrade from the II in my opinion.
Date published: 2018-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast shooting with high quality photo! I am glad that I traded in my Nikon D750 with this camera. This camera is the best camera that I ever owned. I used to have Canon T2i, NIkon D650 and of course D750. Most of the time (98%?) I make a shot, I always getting a good result without any blur. I am using Tamron 28-75MM F2.8 that I got from a local store. The only issue is the battery life is not as strong and very pricey. The choices of lens are not that many either and also pricey. However, with the Tamron 28-75mm I pretty much can shoot whatever I want. Video shooting is also way better than Nikon D750. I love this camera and looking forward for the  next line of a7R.. -- IV?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A7R iii  Just stunning! After shooting Canon DSLRs for over 15 years and investing a lot in Canon lenses, I decided to try the A7R iii after reading reviews that said it now had one of the best focus systems available and Sony was making very good lenses. I was hoping to get a smaller camera than my Canon and the Sony body is a little smaller than my 5d III Canon but some of the Sony zoom lenses are actually big . The combination of fast 10fps with a 42MP is jaw dropping. Eye AF is now on whole new level and not only with Sony lenses but with Canon lenses also. The battery is larger and has a much greater capacity, so much less risk of running out of juice while touring and taking lots of photos. Still a good idea to get a spare battery. Simply Best Camera Ive ever owned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this camera - Glad I switched to Sony from Canon. The images on my Sony a7R iii with Sony lenses are as sharp as my old Canon 5DS R with Canon lenses.? At the beginning I was worried about learning the Sony menu system, but It did not take as long as I thought. It only took a few days. The 399 auto focus points work great!? I love the Eye auto focus. It really works! I am mainly a landscape and wildlife photographer and the 42 MP at 10 fps is exactly what I need. With Canon, I had to have two cameras, a 5DS R and 7DMK 2 to cover both these needs. The Sony fills both my needs in one camera. I am really happy that I traded in all my Canon equipment for the Sony. The two photos attached are from the first trip with my new Sony a7R iii.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ 10 stars! The best camera I have ever owned period. For the money it beats every camera out there right now. I upgraded from the A7R2 and could not be happier. Other reviewers can get into the tech stuff but I just wanted to post that yes it is everything they say and more. Sony has listened to their customer base and responded with the upgrades needed for the A7R3... Outstanding job Sony! I have combined this with the G-master series lens and the image results are the best I have ever had. If you are trying to decide, go for it IMHO you will be very glad you did. Great job Sony A+ job!? Also B&H is the best. Top notch service and prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Camera I have been shooting with this camera for 2 weeks: Traded up from an A7R II to the A7R III so the transition was very easy. The most noticeable difference with the A7R III is faster focusing and much better focus tracking. I mainly take pictures of critters, flowers, and landscape, and readily admit, I have limited photographic talent. What this camera does is let me capture some really incredible pictures under all lighting conditions. People actually think I know what I am doing! This, to me, is what makes the Sony A7R III such an outstanding camera. Lenses: Sony SEL24240 and SEL100400GM? - 1.4x and 2.0x Teleconverters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best camera ever So far it is an amazing camera best Ive ever had. I thought the 42MP might be an issue with file size but thats not the case I just shoot in jpg for normal stuff and RAW for the more important. I had good A type lenses from my A900 and are using them on the AR7III with an adapter and the quality is great. Ill get E lenses soon but no rush now. There is much to learn as this camera does so much but there is a detaile manual and lots of youtube reviews. I added the Meke base extension its much better than Sonys and half the price. I also got an Aodelan WTR-2 wireless remote that is working great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camera is amazing! B&H shipping packaging horrible! When you save up for over a year for a camera, and then drop over 10k on switching systems, you'd think your camera would be packaged better than a GM 24-70, a Batis 85mm 1.8, some? filters, a battery grip, and an Alpha a7rIII bouncing around in a box that is partially open from not enough packing tape and absolutely ZERO packaging materials inside the box. All of this traveled from New Jersey to Los Angeles sliding in the box and crashing from side to side. That's probably why the box was partially open. Let me say it was disappointing that I purchased most of my remaining lenses and gear elsewhere. I have been shopping at B&H for so many years, but this was kind of a let down. Luckily the camera and lenses didn't have any damage.
