Sony a7C Mirrorless Camera (Silver)
a7C: Compact and Capable
Mixing the quality and advantages of a full-frame sensor with an especially sleek and portable design, the silver Sony a7C offers the hybrid recording capabilities, 24.2MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor, and intelligent AF performance you would expect from an Alpha camera but with a form factor for all-day, everyday carry.
Exmor R Sensor, BIONZ X Processor, and 4D FOCUS
24.1MP Full-Frame BSI Sensor and Image Processing
Featuring a back-illuminated design, the full-frame 24.2-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 a gapless on-chip lens design and an anti-reflection coating to improve light collection and enhance detail. Also, the copper wiring layer dramatically improves data transmission speed for creating 14-bit, high-resolution stills with a native sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200, which can be further expanded to ISO 50-204800.
Fast Continuous Shooting and Recording Versatility
The sensor and processor combination enables fast continuous shooting at up to 10 fps at full resolution, for approximately consecutive JPEGs or 115 consecutive raw files, and with full-time AF/AE when working with either a mechanical shutter or an electronic shutter.

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.
Fast Hybrid Autofocus
  • Covering a majority of the image area, a Fast Hybrid AF system incorporates 693 phase-detection points along with 425 contrast-detection areas for quick and precise focusing in a variety of lighting conditions with sensitivity down to -4 EV.
  • Lock onto subjects quickly using 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.
Video Recording
UHD 4K Video Recording in XAVC S Format
  • Internal recording of UHD 4K videos is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps and using 2.4x oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing.
  • Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both 4K and UHD resolutions utilize the 100 Mb/s XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0 8-bit 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 8-bit sampling.
S-Log3 and Other Color and Gamma Controls
Affording extensive customizable color and gamma controls, the a7C allows users to adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more:
  • 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.
  • HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support permits recording within a wide color gamut for producing HDR-ready content directly from the camera.
  • S-Log3 is also available for producing a 15+-stop dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone regions of the image.
5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization
Despite the sleek stature of the a7C, it features a 5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for various 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.
Compact and Versatile Design
Integrated EVF and Vari-Angle LCD
  • Compact and lightweight body design, along with a rangefinder-inspired layout, make the a7C a sleek and portable camera for everyday shooting. Compared to other a7-series cameras, the a7C is approximately 20% smaller and lighter, akin to the size of an APS-C-format camera.
  • A 0.39"-type XGA OLED electronic viewfinder is featured and has a 2.36m-dot resolution and 0.59x magnification for bright, clear viewing in high detail.
  • Rear 3.0" 921.6k-dot rear LCD features a side-open vari-angle design along to benefit working from high, low, and front-facing angles. It's also a touchscreen for intuitive control and playback.
  • Magnesium-alloy chassis along with a weather-sealed design offers a durable overall construction for use in a variety of conditions.
  • The large-capacity NP-FZ100 battery offers approximately 740 shots per charge when working with the rear LCD or 680 shots per charge when working with the EVF.
  • Single SD memory card slot is rated to support UHS-II memory cards for fast transfer speeds.
Ports and Interface
  • A USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port offers for fast and reliable tethering support and also allows the camera to be charged from the host power source while connected.
  • Multi Interface Shoe supports working with the optional ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adapter Kit, which provide improved, clear audio recording sound by sending a digital audio signal to the camera, opposed to an analog signal.
  • Both 3.5mm microphone and headphone ports are available for greater audio recording control.
Wireless Connectivity
  • Built-in Wi-Fi enables the a7C to instantly share imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing online to social networking, via email, and to cloud storage sites. Support for both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands also enables wireless tethered shooting support.
  • Bluetooth connectivity allows for location data acquisition.
  • NFC (Near Field Communication) is also supported, which allows for one-touch connection between the camera and mobile device. Once connected, the linked mobile device can also display a live view image on its screen and remotely control the camera's shutter.
Sony FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 Lens
The Portable Powerhouse Standard Zoom
Impressively compact and versatile, the Sony FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 is a wide-angle to long-normal zoom characterized by its retractable design and sleek profile. Its svelte design makes this lens ideal for walkaround, everyday shooting, and the flexible focal length range benefits a wide range of subject types, from street shooting to portraiture to travel photography.
Small and Light
Small size and lightweight design is what this lens is all about, meaning it's the perfect companion for casual shooting days when a single, versatile, and portable lens is most desirable.
  • Retractable design maintains an especially compact profile when not in use, measuring just 1.8" long.
  • Weighing 5.9 oz, its featherweight stature pairs well with compact full-frame or APS-C bodies.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant design suits working in inclement weather conditions.
Optics and AF
  • Three aspherical elements help to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • The use of specialized elements also contributes to a smaller, lighter physical design.
  • Linear motor, along with an internal focusing mechanism, promotes fast, precise, and quiet focusing performance to suit both stills and video applications.
  • In addition to the variety afforded by the 28-60mm focal length range, this lens also has a versatile 11.8" minimum focusing distance that enables working with close-up subjects.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Sony A7C Reviews

Best Camera For A Journalist

By Joshua
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-19

Such a great product. It's compact size lets me carry around my camera more often so I shoot more. I decided to purchases one new from b&h instead of used elsewhere. Worth it!

Perfect full-frame camera in a small body.

Got this camera recently and was surprised by its quality. Compare with A7RII this camera has significantly better lowlight performance and faster, more accurate autofocus. It's small and light. Perfect travel camera with a combination of Tamron 28-200.

If you're a street photographer this is a great little performer or all around general use,it fits in a small bag or large pocket with a small lens such as the sony 40mm f/2.5 I use mine as a backup to a Sony a7r4,it goes everywhere with me a real joy to use.

I love my 7c!

This is my second 7c body. It is small and lightweight so I carry it everywhere. I got the chrome so I could easily tell the difference from my black 7c, but now find that I can read the top dials more easily.

Traveler's Dream

By Kevin
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-14

The size makes this camera ideal for travel. Having a full frame sensor in a compact form factor is a game changer for the the type of photography I enjoy most. Previously I would take my Sony A7IIR, but carrying around that body and glass on my back all day is something I will not miss. Just grab a good prime or even the very capable kit lens (Sony FE 28-60/4-5.6) and head out for your day. All (almost) the features of the A7III shrunk down to a grab-and-go size. I look forward to my next adventure, streamlined by this equipment.

Expensive but great travel and family camera

By Kyle
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-12-27

The kit lens for the bundled price is actually fairly good for a travel lens or family pictures due to its compact size and good image quality. Lower light it struggles due to its aperture. The camera itself is great for someone wanting a stripped down more compact feeling A7 without going to the a6000 series. Image quality is great. I don't shoot professionally or every day but like to as a hobby and for family travel and this really is great for me
