Sony a7R III BodyRefine your sense of reality with a7R III — an ideal partner offering superior speed, high-resolution imaging, pro-class operability, and reliable performance even under harsh conditions. Welcome to a new world of imaging with resolution, sensitivity, dynamic range, processing speed, and shooting response further enhanced. The a7R III packs pro-style operability into a strong, compact body to give you greater flexibility to take brilliant shots in any situation. With such high power, precision, and potential at your command, you can capture once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
The full-frame Exmor R CMOS image sensor features 42.4MP resolution, back illumination and gapless on-chip lens design for extraordinary sensitivity and dynamic range, anti-reflection coating on sensor seal glass, and other innovations that unleash the sensor's power to make images look realistic. The front-end LSI makes data readout from the image sensor approximately two times faster and the BIONZ X image processor is now about 1.8 times faster. Enhanced image processing realizes lower noise and further extended dynamic range across a wide sensitivity range of up to standard ISO 32000 (expandable to 50-102400).
Taking the AF processing engine from the s9, it improves AF speed, precision, and tracking performance. 399 phase-detection AF points and 425 contrast-detection AF points with 68% of image frame coverage. Up to 2x faster AF speed and 2x more precise AF tracking lets you capture and maintain focus on moving subjects. EV-3 AF in low light. Eye AF's enhanced precision further assists you to easily shoot a portrait of a moving subject using AF-C even during continuous shooting, and even if the subject looks down and away from the camera, or is backlit with face in partial darkness. It supports Eye AF for A-mount lenses via an adaptor.
With new shutter unit and image processing system refinements, it can shoot continuously at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking (up to 8fps minor lag in live-view continuous shooting mode) for easy, stable shooting of active subjects. An electronic shutter allows silent, vibration-free shooting of wildlife when even slight noise can mean missing an ideal shot. Greater buffer memory, system speed, and UHS-II support allow it to capture up to approx. 28 uncompressed RAW, or 76 compressed RAW or JPEG images, in a continuous burst at 10fps. Fn menu/menu display access, setting changes and review playback can occur during data writing. A countdown of the number of still images remaining to be written to memory is on display during playback.
The AF-ON button activates autofocus without any half-press-shutter-button focus sequence, so you can concentrate better on exactly when to release the shutter and capture the moment instantly. A multi-selector lets you shift the point of focus quickly and efficiently. You can select and shift the point of focus intuitively, so you won't miss great chances to shoot moving subjects.
Applying mechanisms and control technology of image stabilization, this new feature composites four separate pixel-shifted images that contain total data equal to approx. 169.6 million, or 42.4 million x 4 (RGGB), pixels to reproduce a single optimal still image of super-high resolution, detailed texture, balanced color, and realistic atmosphere, with minimal moiré and color artifacts. Images shot using this feature can be processed with the new Sony imaging software suite.
This EVF provides accurate detail, contrast, and black reproduction, while maintaining natural image brightness. High-quality mode, suitable for fine focus adjustment, takes full advantage of rich image data from the image sensor to display more natural high-precision images with minimal moiré and jagginess, so you can concentrate more on shooting. You can choose 120/100fps fram rate for the viewfinder to make motion smooth. The EVF focus magnifier allows autofocus while a chosen focus area is magnified in the viewfinder. A 3.0-type LCD touch screen with 1.44M dots makes focus operation intuitive and instant. You can touch the monitor screen to specify a focus point with Touch Focus. The Touch Pad function lets you drag the focus frame to another point with a fingertip on the screen as you monitor the shot through the EVF.
4K movies with minimal moiré and jaggies, Super 35mm mode full-pixel readout without pixel binning condenses approximately 1.8x the data required for 4K movies. Supporting a wide range of HDR movie production needs, the a7R III offers S-Log3 & S-Log2 gamma curves for more flexibility to express images through grading operation in post-production, & new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile for instant HDR workflow. Recorded movies played back on an HDR (HLG) compatible TV need no color grading to appear true-to-life, with no blocked shadows or blown highlights.
Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data, separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies, and copy data from one card to the other.
