Sony a7S III Mirrorless Camera

For Visual Trailblazers

Optimized video, optimized sensitivity, optimized speed, the Sony a7S III raises the bar for what a full-frame mirrorless camera is capable of. A revised 12.1MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor and updated BIONZ XR image processor offer faster performance, improved noise reduction, and a wider dynamic range, along with UHD 4K 120p video recording and internal 10-bit 4:2:2 sampling.

12.1MP Exmor RS BSI CMOS Sensor and BIONZ XR Processor

A redesigned 12.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor now features a back-illuminated Exmor RS design in order to achieve improved clarity and reduced noise along with the expectedly impressive sensitivity, from ISO 80-102400 with an extended ISO 40-409600 range. The updated sensor design also yields 2x faster readout speeds than previous generations and, when coupled with the revised BIONZ XR image processor, greatly reduces rolling shutter by 3x and up to 8x faster processing and overall camera handling. The sensor and processor combination also helps to achieve a wide dynamic range, of up to approximately 14 stops for stills and 15 stops for video, and 10 fps continuous shooting for up to 1000 uncompressed raw files for stills.

Video Recording

UHD 4K 120p Video, 10-Bit 4:2:2 Internal Recording

  • UHD 4K recording is possible with frame rates up to 120p, using full 1:1 pixel readout without binning. Internal 10-bit 4:2:2 sampling is also possible in all recording modes and, if recording externally via the full-size HDMI A port, 16-bit raw output is also possible for even greater tonal reproduction and post-production flexibility.
  • Two codecs have also been developed: XAVC HS, which uses HEVC/H.265 encoding to retain more detail at smaller bitrates, and XAVC S-I, which is an intraframe codec for consistent performance and quality at bitrates up to 600 Mb/s.

Recording Flexibility

  • The high-speed, 120 fps recording enables 4x and 5x slow-motion movie recording with the frame rate playback set to either 30p or 24p or, if moving down to Full HD resolution, an effective 240p frame rate is also available for even greater motion control.
  • Suiting long-form recording, the a7S III does not have any recording time limits to allow for unlimited clip lengths. The camera's physical design also features an improved heat-dissipating structure to promote longer possible recording times, up to an approximate 60-minute recording time at 4K60p.

Advanced Color Control

  • S-Cinetone can be used to deliver distinct colors and healthy-looking skin tone rendering that matches the FX9 and FX6 cameras and is based on technology from the professional Cinema Line cameras, such as the VENICE. This color profile offers natural mid-tones, soft colors, and especially well-controlled highlights.
  • Affording extensive customizable color and gamma controls, the you can adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more. Also, users can use the same S-Log2 Gamma Curve that is found on high end Sony Cinema cameras that squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video signal then traditional REC709, for increased post-production flexibility.

Autofocus and Image Stabilization

Fast Hybrid AF System

Covering 92% of the image area, a Fast Hybrid AF system incorporates 759 phase-detection points along with 425 contrast-detection areas for quick and precise focusing in a variety of lighting conditions with sensitivity down to -6 EV. This focusing system is available for use in all recording modes, to benefit both video and stills applications. Additionally, it is able to lock onto subjects quickly and can use Real-time Tracking for AI-based tracking on moving subjects or touch tracking for manual selection of the subject. Real-time Eye AF, suitable for both humans and animals, also ensures critical sharpness when shooting portraits. Helping to fine-tune how the focusing system performs, seven-step AF transition speed and five-step AF subject shift sensitivity controls let you refine how quickly focus shifts from point to point and how smoothly focusing shifts occur.

5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization

The a7S III incorporates an enhanced 5.5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system, which 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.

Additionally, specifically for video, there is also an Active IS mode that adds even more precise stabilization methods for even smoother footage straight out of camera.

Body Design and Connectivity

Tru-Finder EVF and Vari-Angle Touchscreen LCD

  • An impressive QXGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF features a high 9.44m-dot resolution and 0.9x magnification for exceptionally bright, clear, and detailed eye-level viewing. This viewfinder has a dedicated 120 fps High Quality setting for smooth motion rendering and the finder's physical design has a long 25mm eye point, 41° field of view, and features a fluorine coating on the outermost viewfinder element to benefit cleaning.
  • A first for a7-series cameras, a side-opening 3.0" 1.44m-dot vari-angle articulating screen benefits working from high and low angles as well as a front-facing position for vlogging or other self-recording needs. This LCD is a touchscreen, too, for intuitive shooting control and menu navigation.
  • Redesigned menu structure is more intuitive and complements having different workflows and settings selections for movie recording and stills shooting. The menu system also works in conjunction with the touchscreen design of the rear LCD.

Versatile and Durable Design

  • Dual memory card slots both accept either CFexpress Type A or SD-type memory cards. The dual slot design allows for flexible file saving and handling and can be configured to partition file types or can be used for overflow recording. Additionally, both of the card slots are rated to support UHS-II memory cards for faster transfer speeds.
  • Magnesium alloy chassis assures rigidity, durability, and stability while remaining lightweight. The lens mount has also been improved to better support heavy lenses, and the grip rigidity has been improved for more comfortable hand-holding.

Sony A7S III Reviews

Should've bought it sooner!

By Ryan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-30

I've used the a7S II since 2017, works great, but upgrading everything around it kind of forced my hand so I bit the bullet and got the a7S III even though I thought I probably wouldn't notice much of a difference. I was wrong. The 10 bit 4:2:2 really shows, and somehow the lowlight performance did actually improve. The bigger battery, the lack of overheating, the (actually usable) adjustable LCD screen, loving all of it.

Don't even know where to begin. This camera blows the a73 away - no comparison. I've used the a73 for my wedding videography business for years and upgraded to this as soon as it was announced. Bought a second one a year later and can't get over the quality and build. If you have the room in the budget, go with this bad boy. 4k 422 60fps... just amazing! No overheating even in the blistering sun of summer.

As Incredible as They Say

By Christopher
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-26

There is a lot of breathless reviewing online of the A7s3, and it can all feel a little put-on, but the reality is that the quality of the camera - especially for video - is incredible. We use the camera with a Ninja V, recording ProRes 422 in Slog3/Cine3 and the picture is consistently natural and easy to work with in post. Highlights read really well and color is consistent across the full range of the sensor. Chromatic noise is almost non-existent. The menus aren't that bad. We couldn't be happier with the picture and can recommend the camera without hesitation.

This camera is Excellent. I have only had it two weeks and have shot 4 different projects with it. The image straight out of the camera is great with s-cinetone, but using slog to match with other cameras works like a dream. Definitely worth the asking price, if you can get a hold of one.

My favorite digital camera to date

If you're doing video, there's not a lot here you won't love. You know the specs, but the customization on the button layout and mode knob make this the easiest camera to use. Take some time and set it up how you like to use it and never look back. Such a great camera. Pair it with a Sony GM lens and be prepared to have your socks blown off.

I have owned the camera for 8 months this and use it for general filming of school events and hype videos. As a result i find my self in bad lighting conditions the low light capability and the larger dynamic range result in having a usable image in all situations. for our school hype videos the high frame rates Raine supreme and the low light capability and dynamic range mean you can do slow motion in in the craziest situations. And the auto focus is relabel it is always ready to track the eye of your subject no mater the situation and make sure you don't ever miss the shoot. The only regret i have is not buying a v90 card earlier to use the 1080 240 as i find my self wanting to use it more often . If you are looking for a no compromises video camera that can handle anything you trough at it look no further than the a7S III you well not regret buying this Camera.

When recording to the Ninja V+, it outputs a 16-bit RAW signal for Prores RAW mode. Does it output the same RAW signal for the others flavours of Prores like Prores 422? Similar to the Shogun reading FSRAW from the FS5 and FS700 and debayering the signal? Or is it just a video out signal for non Prores RAW modes? I want to know if shooting in Prores 422 will have denoising and other in-camera functions applied to the image.
Asked by: Alex
The only RAW output with the Ninja V+ would be to ProRes RAW. All the other formats would be 10-bit files. The Ninja V does not offer a denoising feature.

The A7SIII has had significant, significant improvements to its AF speed and tracking functionality (such as Eye AF during video), and the camera is now at the same level as cameras such as the A7RIV, A6600, and almost as good as the new Sony A1.

If you record 4K video via an external video recorder attached to the Sony A7S III, is there any risk of the camera overheating?

No, the camera wouldn't overheat if you record externally. The camera barely overheats if you record internally, unless you're doing 4K 120P for long periods of time.

Why is it continuous stills are limited to 10 fps if the camera is capable to record 4K 10-Bit Intra @600 Mbps?
Asked by: Peter
Image files are still larger than video files. They record the full 12 Megapixels of the sensor as opposed to the 8 Megapixels recorded during video. I cannot categorically say this is the reason, but I would guess it has something to do with it.
