Inspiring maximum creativity
Welcome to a new world of imaging with resolution, sensitivity, dynamic range, processing speed, and shooting response further enhanced. The α7R 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.
Depicting scenes in intimate detail
The image processing system has evolved to deliver high resolution and low noise throughout a wider ISO range. The camera depicts the mood of every scene’s surroundings as well as texture of details.
Strong, light, reliable design takes you further
High-resolution Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder provides natural, high-precision viewfinder image. The functional advantages of an EVF, such as high visibility in darkness and AF capability when using magnified display, is further enhanced for powerful shooting support. For even greater versatility, the α7R III’s small, light body is robust and rigid enough for rugged use.
3.69-million-dot Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder
This high-resolution twice-as-bright electronic viewfinder reproduces fine detail. "Hi" quality mode provides extra-fine views of natural realism on brilliant display.
Up to 10fps continuous shooting
Capture an instant action with continuous shooting of up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking. Huge data of 42.4MP imaging maintains high image quality that is advantageous for your creative trimming.
Shoot continuously in absolute silence
This camera allows silent shooting at up to 10fps with AF/AE tracking. Silence is critical for shooting wildlife, when even slight noise can mean missing a chance at an ideal shot.
Dramatically evolved AF performance
AF performance is improved by inheriting the AF performance used in the α9 and applying it optimally, so once the α7R III captures a wild animal that moves unpredictably, it won’t easily let it go.
Reliable AF down to EV-3 brightness
Advanced AF algorithms contribute to high AF precision down to light levels as low as EV-3, for more reliable autofocus in dark scenes.
Never waste a moment
New multi-selector, AF-ON button, and touch focus functions make focus operation quick and intuitive. With built-in dual slots and compatibility with large-capacity rechargeable-battery NP-FZ100, the α7R III also ensures that you can shoot with far less interruption, because you won’t need to change media and battery as frequently.
Eye AF with doubled performance
With the α7R III, Eye AF evolves with two times more immediate, effective eye detection and tracking, even when shooting a moving portrait subject.
Enhanced image stabilization: freer shooting
Thanks to enhanced 5-axis in-camera image stabilizer, whenever you want to move and shoot freely, you can rely on the α7R III’s high-resolution performance and mobility, in order to concentrate on the subject without worrying about various types of camera-shake blur.
5-axis optical in-body image stabilization
New stabilization unit/gyro sensors/algorithms effectively raise 5.5 stops. Five types of camera shake — angular shake (pitch/yaw), X/Y shift, and rotational shake (roll) — are compensated.
High connectivity for professional workflow
The α7R III includes USB 3.1 Gen 1 compatible USB Type-C port and sync terminals that enable the camera to be connected directly to external devices without delay. These connections make workflow more seamless and stress-free, even for studio shooting that makes use of PC tethered shooting or flash.
USB 3.1 Gen 1 for fast data transfer
This makes PC tethered shooting available for smooth handling of big RAW image files, so you can quickly review images on a PC and continue shooting without much delay for file transfers.
Sync terminal available
A standard sync terminal is provided for convenient synchronization with studio flash units and other external lighting equipment.
Pixel Shift Multi Shooting
This new Pixel Shift Multi Shooting reproduces still images that contain true-to-life detail, texture, color, and overall atmosphere.
High-resolution 4K HDR
In addition to capability to record stunning high-resolution 4K movies through 5K (15MP) oversampling, the camera features a new HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) picture profile, supporting instant HDR workflow, that offers wide dynamic range for highly precise and lifelike movie images without color grading.
Shoot and record 4K movies with oversampling
You can shoot and internally record 4K movies oversampled from 5K (15MP) equivalent data in Super 35mm format. The results are startlingly beautiful in every detail.
Supporting various needs in HDR production
The α7R III features S-Log for flexible expression of images in post-production and HLG for instantaneous HDR workflow — a combination that fulfills various HDR production requirements.
HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) for instant HDR workflow
A new HLG picture profile supports instantaneous HDR workflow. Movies recorded in HLG picture mode will appear true-to-life with suppressed blocked shadows or blown highlights, without color grading.
