For visual trailblazers
Large pixels deliver high sensitivity and low noise
Large pixels deliver high sensitivity and low noise
The new full-frame 12.1-megapixel2 back-illuminated Exmor RTM CMOS image sensor packs major innovations in light gathering, wiring and output optimisation. These deliver blazing doubled readout speeds, superb image quality throughout the whole sensitivity range, 15-stop wide dynamic range, and reduced rolling shutter, with the sensor also providing focal-plane phase-detection AF.
Up to 8x more powerful BIONZ XR image processor
Up to 8x more powerful BIONZ XR image processor
Along with the new sensor and its unprecedented speed, the BIONZ XR image processing engine has also been newly developed and packs up to 8x more processing power4. With a future-oriented architecture, it delivers high quality images faster for superlative still and video expression, as well as dramatically improved camera interface responsiveness.
Stunning AF performance even at 4K 120p
Stunning AF performance even at 4K 120p
The new Exmor R full-frame image sensor and revolutionary BIONZ XR image processing engine deliver always-active pinpoint AF for astonishing detail in both space and time, and stunning 4K movies even at 120 frames per second or in slow motion. With the resolution and depth of field only possible from a full-frame sensor, the results are spectacular.
Our renowned sensitivity delivers expanded ISO 409600
Our renowned sensitivity delivers expanded ISO 409600
The renowned sensitivity of the series scales new heights, with an expanded ISO range for movies from 80 to a remarkable 409600 (standard range 80 - 102400). With advanced light-gathering and output optimisation, the 12.1-megapixel2 full-frame sensor achieves low noise throughout the sensitivity range, and can capture usable images in near total darkness.
Powerful focus control for solo shooters
Powerful focus control for solo shooters
With AF Transition Speed selectable over 7 levels, and AF Subject Shift Sensitivity over 5 levels, you can better convey your creative intentions when switching subjects or, for example, rack focusing. A simple touch can temporarily activate AF even during manual focus operation.
CFexpress Type A media slots
CFexpress Type A media slots
The upper (Slot 1) and lower (Slot 2) media slots both support UHS-I and UHS-II SDXC/SDHC cards as well as the all new CFexpress Type A cards for higher overall capacity and faster read/write speeds. CFexpress Type A cards are ideally suited to high-speed continuous still shooting as well as 4K movie recording at high bit rates, providing next-generation write speeds of still image and movie data.
In-body 5-axis image stabilisation
In-body 5-axis image stabilisation
A highly accurate image stabilisation unit and gyro-sensor are provided, delivering 5-axis optical image stabilisation. [1] Yaw [2] Roll [3] Pitch
Active Mode for hand-held shooting
Active Mode for hand-held shooting
The new Active Mode10 11 provides increased stabilisation for movie shooting. To preserve image quality, the BIONZ XR processor accurately measures camera shake and compensates optically. This makes stable video possible even when shooting hand-held where space restraints prevent gimbal use, while walking, and at 4K resolution11.
Advanced operability
The menu structure has been redesigned to reflect feedback from both pro photographers and videographers. Camera settings are now more intuitive and the camera is more responsive to setting changes.
Outstanding continuous shooting performance
Use your choice of mechanical or electronic shutter for continuous burst shooting, with AF/AE tracking, at up to 10fps13. Capture decisive moments with over 1000 frames of continuous uncompressed RAW shooting possible14.
Outstanding continuous shooting performance
Fast Hybrid AF for stills
The Fast Hybrid AF system combines speed and precision. With 759 focal plane phase-detection sensors and 425 contrast-detection points distributed across most of the image area, the α7S III quickly finds and tracks your subject throughout the frame.

Key Features

High-definition 9.44 million-dot electronic viewfinder

High-definition 9.44 million-dot electronic viewfinder

Boasting the highest resolution in its class, the a7S III's viewfinder rivals the resolution of the human eye. It provides category-leading 0.90x viewfinder magnification, a 41º diagonal field of view, and a 25mm high eyepoint for clear, low-distortion viewing. Improvements in sealing greatly reduce the chance that even drastic ambient temperature fluctuations will cause interior condensation.

New touch-driven menu with workflow-based navigation

New touch-driven menu with workflow-based navigation

Responding to requests from pro photographers and videographers, the menu structure has been designed to allow professionals to work more efficiently. Menu tabs are on the left side of the display, while parameter groups and parameters related to the selected tab appear on the right. Up to three levels can be displayed together, making the menu structure more clearly visible. Touch-responsive menu operations enable fast, intuitive control.

Dedicated settings menu for movie shooting

A subset of the camera's settings can be changed independently for movie or still shooting, which can be useful if you want to use different ISO, Iris (aperture) and other settings depending on the shooting mode. Another convenient feature is the use of Flexible Exposure Mode instead of normal PASM Mode when Movie or S&Q mode is selected. This allows quick switching between auto and manual control of Iris (aperture) and shutter speed, and the function can be assigned to a custom button to allow one-touch toggling between auto and manual.

Top Features

  • 10-bit 4:2:2 recording

    Record right on the camera with the amazing richness of 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 colour sampling, for far greater flexibility in image grading, post-processing and compositing.
  • Movie-shooting comfort

    Responding to feedback from professional users, the MOVIE button has been moved to the top face for improved operability in any shooting position. Mode dial ordering and speed of switching have also been improved.
  • Vari-angle LCD monitor for comfortable movie shooting

    The variable-angle 1.44 million-dot17 3.0-type touch screen features a side-open design, for flexible positioning and improved visibility when mounting on gimbals or rigs.
