1 dial is enough 99% - EVF: like on the RX100. Do you work with him, or perhaps share the same alias ? Yes! Can't read all the comments but 1984 comments show this is an interesting Camera. Well, I think that Wesley related to the review article that states "clumsy compressed RAW".Personally I have never run into problems with Sony's compressed RAW format and have never experienced any sort of degradation of IQ. This is incrementally smaller, not so much as to make a significant difference from the other small FF MILCs. It offers a resolution of 24 megapixel. @MILCman: you wrote: "these companies have years of data about what sells and what doesn't sell, along with market studies and focus groups.". I remember their portable Discman players, their MP3 players, their VAIO notebooks. If I did a lot of this, I would set a Fn button for it.. one button away from as many brackets as I want of whatever type of bracket I want. It fits a 24MP full-frame sensor and image stabilization into a body more closely resembling the APS-C sensor a6600. Sony’s range of full-frame mirrorless cameras has been a … Of course large companies pour a lot of resources into market studies and trying to figure out what products to release and when. Presumably so that it could be left folded inwards and look like a film based Leica? To the point Canon and Nikon will be squeezing their mounts on a small body sooner rather than later. When evaluating the price, it needs to be stated, that the 5n was a top-tier, state of the art APSC camera back then.The A7c is certainly overall great and super compact, but it doesn't wholly carry the latest tech. Straw man argument. You should of done your homework before writing your arrogant and ill-informed comment. Talking about canikon "color science" just makes you sound like a parrot. Find out what we think about the brand new Sony a7C in this hands-*off* review! Sony a7C review. Second, the response to the a7c may be so poor that they'd have to discount it a lot. Now, THAT would make a lot of people buy it. Large companies doing market research have made mistakes. I read some of your posts - just like "Thoughts", you seem to spend a lot of your time bashing Sony. @aegarcia I don’t want a bridge camera, I want a compact full frame with interchangeable lenses and A7 class autofocus. Pixel Pooper, KZ7: I think the price is set pretty high since this is a new concept, and Sony want to test what people are willing to pay for such a camera. Today we are going to take the review of Sony A7C Camera. But this camera saves like 100g over say the Fuji x-t4 which is from another universe in quality of parts and functionality. But let's look at who this camera is aimed at. But the price put me off. Lossless raw and raw file compression are not mutually exclusive (an annoyance I have with my A7 II and they've still not fixed it). But I can wait it out, I have no justification for a new travel camera during a pandemic. So it is amazing. gfrensen - "it can give some privacy" - you really are *that* worried that someone might peek a look at your photos to see how good/bad they are? Not so with the a7c. Your cripple hammer has successfully destroyed the possibly iconic camera, next since Panasonic GF1! Or is it your incompetence to read basic specs? I did mention the separate Fn menu for movie mode (on the video page), but I doubt I'd have ever found every one of those differences. Sony’s years of being the only full-frame mirrorless provider have made them lazy indeed. And I can't give up my A7Riv resolution. The Pen-F was a great flat top that did not sell well- side hinged LCD. This product has you covered both ways. The fact that Sony just recently lowered the price of the a7III is a sign that the a7c is not selling that great and preorders were weak. Ironically, their PlayStation products don't suffer from this; there they didn't mess around and made sure to get the ergonomics and user experience down right. Most likely Sony had it developed a while ago, decided to not go with it, but then brought it back to give them a new camera to release for the holidays. Plenty of great street shooter cameras to draw inspiration from to make this one special but feels a bit lazy in execution (to me). This camera is small and sleek, has great IQ, great AF, and a fantastic selection of lenses. You should not set the function to take photo with the touch screen. Fujifilm has announced a special version of its 100MP GFX 100 for infrared imaging. I ended up using the a5100 more due to its size and convenience but wanted better quality but didn’t think the then a6000 or a6100 justified the cost. Hmm, Sony revolution is going backwards. This year, despite the disruption, plenty of amazing cameras, lenses, accessories and other products came through our doors. The reaction on social media, which is esp important to Sony, has been tepid at best to the a7c. Dpreview tested the new Sony A7c and concluded: The Sony a7C is gives up very little in the way of features in order to achieve its small size. The Alpha 7C is a compact body without compromising full-frame camera performance, advanced AF (autofocus) performance, and high-resolution 4K video capabilities. The means of the average user on this site and those of the people outside of it seem to become more detached by the minute. See, it makes no sense for Sony to do that unless they are not persuading many buyers with the a7c. So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. My understanding is that Sony A7C has the processor, menu system and AF from A6400 and A7r4. The Sony a7C forgoes Sony’s typical pattern of leapfrogging its own lineup with a headline-grabbing camera release for something that’s more vanilla. You can start with a sledgehammer. Yes, they play it safe, but innovation is not when you put a higher res VF or sensor into a camera. You're really trying too hard to prove your speculation! What can be done?! I can read the size measurements, but side by side pictures provide a better reference. Sorry Sony, stick with your pricey color TVs.gone. Agreed. Lossless uncompressed is redundant. My A7s is 470g with the battery, which comes in at 50g itself. This is how tribe members argue. There have been some Leica cameras that got a lot of comments, like the Q2 and some M models but that doesn't mean they sell in great quantity. They know how to make high quality EVFs and LCD screens. This camera looks like it was made for me and my needs, but the obvious and fixable shortcomings are keeping my credit card in my pocket. There is no direct connection between percentage and award (otherwise the award ends up being the same thing, stated with less precision). It seems like their Alpha cameras are really interesting only starting from their Mark II versions, like the a7 II, RX1 II, RX0 II and now this one...I hope they will correct the bad things about the a7C in the next version . Why? @Thoughts R UsI've never seen an OP like you lose every argument in a post like you just did. Leica Q2, Zeiss ZV1) appeal to a small segment of the market who are willing to pay prices that seem outrageous to those who don't like or want those products! Sony have new menus already, so why not use them in their actual newest camera? BRAVO SONY!!! No joystick feels like a downgrade honestly, this camera has bad ergonomics compared to A7-III. Check out the winners of the 2020 DPReview Awards! Yes MILC man that's right. Well very few people are any good at photography. This is what videographers would have to accept with this sensor.

IMO, the A7c should have been priced to compete against the Nikon Z5. D'uh! I wish Canon and Nikon would carry on producing new DSLR models instead of leaving it to Pentax. Stop arguing with Sony fanboys. This is purely just a parts bin camera. Foto-erhardt DE. My hope is that the pandemic fades out, easy travel resumes, then I will need a camera like this and I hope by then the A7C Mark II fixes most or all of the deal breakers that currently exist on it. Sony a7C vs Sony a7 III: Which is better? The RX100 series has improved greatly through its 7 versions. This is what people want from mirrorless, not big ugly DSLR clones. Mr Bolton - Yes of course the same bracketing can be achieved just as easily with a MILC. Like MILC said they do not have real time tracking. Posted in gallery, Gear Review, Geekery, Photo, photography, Sony, Technology By Eric L. Woods 2 Replies to “Camera Review: Sony A7c – Part 2. I really like the size, weight. (On which, I'm assuming you can do the same thing). Admittedly I did not get it at first but once I got my head fully around the specs the rest was a blur. Saved a lot of pictures for me.And when exposure is of by say one stop or so, shooting RAW can help too, no need for bracketing (although it can come in handy and as this is not linked to the type of VF it makes no difference what camera you have.And Yes I do like the capabilitie of checking the pictures I took in the EVF, it can give some privacy but also in direct sunlight it can be the only way. @mikegt, so you have zero proof of your insane allegations, and you have no clue about business tactics either. The last real contender was the (brilliant) A73. There's always hope that they fix it in v2. It needs to be high quality. Check back soon for lots more results and samples! All camera companies need to realize that they should put a great EVF in all of their mirrorless offerings...it will make a big difference on the user experience and even on first impressions for customers deciding to purchase. Not having a tiny built in flash was an odd omission. With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. Above all, though, Sony is marketing this camera to photographers and content creators who want to keep things small and light…which includes the new FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 retractable kit zoom lens. In the meantime, this release has oddly made me feel newly happy about my old A7. As the announcement page for A6400 says the processor is updated to latest generation i.e. Thirdly, I can shoot off a bracketed series of 3 shots far faster on a DSLR, than I can twiddle the compensation knob and analyse the monitor of a MILC. Well, we got to admit that it is a move in the right direction for FF cameras. This excellent video review takes a … Sony have changed a thing or two in the follow on releases. My entry in the interchangeable mirrorless camera was in late 2011 with the venerable Sony Nex 5n. Here is a thread on a couple of them. The colors are OK. Instead of introducing A7C, Sony should update the RX1/II models, perhaps without the Zeiss lens to reduce the price. It obtains most of its high-end capabilities in a form factor almost unseen in this segment. A camera that scores highly is more likely to get a gold award (because it tests well), but it's not guaranteed. My A7s is much smaller than the latest crop of A7/A9 cameras. Photo News. Sony A7C Review -- Now Shooting! If you'll notice, it's not only the a7iii that got a lower price.... so did the a9, a7Riv, a7Riii, a7ii, etc. Since you double-posted, here is my double reply: Companies use paid "influencers" to promote their products on social media forums. So I am extremely happy with it. It skips stabilization (the feature is built into the camera body), and adds $300 to … "Well, it's a bit more complex than that. How's that slower than a DSLR? Unless you have some proof of your insane conspiracy theory nonsense just go back to your anti-vaxx flat earth fake moonlanding circles. Sony a7C vs Sony a7 III: Which is better? Ultimately, though, both are less nuanced assessments than the conclusion text, which is itself less detailed than the full review text. Take a closer look. No need to get sad over this one. Know of at least 2 people who were waiting for exactly this kind of camera. This argument makes no sense. You get paid to lie. It helps then you start with more pleasing colors the way you want them...and some color problems just can't be fixed in post. The point I was making was that for me, the ability to bracket exposures makes the WYSIWYG aspect of MILCs redundant. In this case they could have innovated and found a way to put a nice high res EVF into a body this size. @Wiel: my point is that with some other more popular releases, like the Sony a7sIII and Canon R5/R6, at launch time you could't find a single one in stock. They're competent, but pixel peeping shows no notable advantage over a lot of less expensive crop sensor offerings. I will not state here what I think of TRU but he isn’t getting paid! Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. It skips stabilization (the feature is built into the camera body), and adds $300 to … I am glad that you think my comments are worthy of paid compensation. Do you want to spend a lot of time editing while on vacation? Personally, apart from the size there is nothing that interesting with the image quality, its a decent ff sensor and 24mp is good enough most of the time. As a photographer, imagine being forced to shoot JPEG only. That makes for an interesting comparison and perhaps will address the question of if people will pay a premium for a smaller camera. Add the needed fill/light flash and the whole smallness exercise collapses. Sony are attempting to turn the camera world on its head by creating a new 35mm full-frame camera that's the same size and weight as one with a smaller APS-C sensor. Neither the Canon R's nor Nikon Z's are the size of their DSLR counterparts...not really close. Marcus Sundman: I have a simple answer for a nasty troll like you: Firmly shove everything you wrote back up where it came from. This new camera might as well have been simply sitting on the shelf, designed a couple of years ago. Fotokoch DE. Dynamic range is excellent but you need to shoot large, uncompressed Raw files to get the full benefit. Sony a7C Hands-on Review + comparisons to Sony a7 III, Best Mid-Range Full Frame Mirrorless: Canon R6, Sony a7 III, Nikon Z6 II, Panasonic S5. But that doesn't make them immune to some miscues. What’s the best camera for less than $1000? Probably women with small hands who would like to put big long lens on small mounts... *sounds too frivolous ..Hmm. There was a rumor last year that a camera like this was going to come out. Among still photographers, the camera is aimed at those who want small and light, probably mostly for travel. Vaporware no more: the much-speculated-about Zeiss ZX1 has arrived. It is not so tall as other cameras and is a bit lighter. It features the same hybrid autofocus system as higher-end models, with "Real-time Tracking" and Eye AF for both humans and animals. So when a7c was announced I was immediately thrilled. Unfortunately, Sony forgot to differentiate the price between the two. They prefer to take them and share them. The best cameras for under $1000 should have good ergonomics and controls, great image quality and be capture high-quality video. That's why so many competing brands continue to exist! And while a retracting kit lens doesn’t sound like a recipe for optical excellence, the FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 delivers edge-to-edge sharpness right across the zoom range. I only asked as he compared the camera to the Z6 II. Whom they will market it for? So once again TRU is talking nonsens . They have yet to receive the individual cameras without the kit lens. Want to buy it? Way to go Sony! If only... > you think my comments are worthy of paid compensation. Preorders have not been that great. Canon and Nikon spoil us in that regard; they better understand the photographer experience using a camera. The biggest news around the Sony A7C is its design, which is like a fusion of the Sony A7 III and the Sony A6600. This site seems increasingly like some sort of fantasy island entirely cut off from the real world. $2,400CAD?!? Plus most basic entry level body have a built in flash as standard. If you want a Sony bridge go for a Sony rx10 iv. Try aa D3500, VividX3 sharrpnesX5 ,cloudy setting white balance, and 81A filter. The Canon EOS Rebel T8i (also known as the EOS 850D or Kiss X10i in some markets) is a 24MP DSLR aimed at first-time DSLR buyers and enthusiasts. Every time TRU makes a comment he will be there as well defending his brand blindly. View our sample gallery to see how a bit of shift can change a photo or introduce creative effects. I've added front and rear shots, side-by-side with the a7 III at the top of page 3. The A7C is currently more expensive than the higher specced A7III, so there is definitely room to move. Sony always discounts their products at this time of year! It keeps being mentioned by dpreview that the eye af is better on this camera as “you don't have to hold down a second button to utilize eye-detection” as with the a7iii, but you don’t on the a7iii with the latest firmware. The pics are OK.. but honestly nothing a lot of other cameras-including small sized ones-can't do for less, especially with this very average kit lens. The screen can work as joystick (same as A7r3. To have a large sensor in a small body, to natively have access to some great Sony … Sony prices up to then can be very sticky. In movie mode the shutter can start recording or you can assign the movie button in movie mode to start/stop recording. Sometimes it holds true, sometimes not. DEAR CAMERA MAKER, PLEASE INVEST $50-$100 MORE in HI QUAL MATERIALS AND MECHANICS FOR A SMALL BODIED CAMERA!Well, the camera industry is not hearing to enthusiasts since years, they are too concentrated on short term revenue and Megapixel Wars...Too sad and frustrating...SONY and CANON are surely not going to die next, b/c of business diversity, BUT YOU, NIKON, with your huge new mount and even huger arrogance, how do you want to sell all the great Z6/Z7 (m2) to the crowd who just take the phoneThe bell tolls ;-). There are 2 unassigned buttons out of the box the C (garbage can) and down button. If your here you care about that extra stop or two of light. Expensive lousy little lensholder - bronze at max. 232. So yes, way chunkier and heavier, and they way I use my camera that added bulk and weight does indeed make a big difference. Fuji's 18-55mm kit lens is the same equivalent speed, made largely of metal, and optically superior to this kit. I find it curiously interesting that Sony dropped the price of the A7iii to $1700, which makes it $100 cheaper than the a7c. Go like a fujichrome velvia 50. Adapters? The only other 24mp sensors are are the older one in the A7II/Z5 and the faster one in the A9/A9II, which has reduced dynamic range and is too expensive for this camera. The rear camera (or cameras) on an iPhone has all the latest bells and whistles, but how do you use them to capture a selfie or record a video of yourself? So I am not quite shocked when you say "straw arguments" here. The firm has used a monocoque design, with the main components fixed to the weather-sealed magnesium alloy shell, rather than an internal chassis. Panasonic S5 vs Sony A7C. A number of people are having these problems and some are returning their cameras because of it (read through the thread). Preorders: In the USA at BHphoto, Adorama, Amazon, FocusCamera. Most obviously while all A7 bodies to date have employed DSLR-styling with a central viewfinder hump, the A7C becomes the first in the range to adopt a flat-topped rangefinder style like the A6000 series with the viewfinder positioned in the top left corner; indeed at virtually the same size and weight as the A6600, the A7C becomes Sony’s smallest and lightest full-frame body to date. I don't know if small equates to less features. Such a shame the a7c is the price that it is, but maybe in a year I’ll get it as a second full frame body assuming an a7iv doesn’t tempt me.... Small evf - no issue - it works doesn’t it? The VF is literally the single most important user interface on a camera for most. It’s the world’s smallest full-frame system camera – and there’s no big catch . The gear is part of the hobby and it is easier to upgrade gear than to become a better photographer. I'll definitely add a mention of the 5Ghz WiFi. This camera is Sony playing to its strengths. @Thoughts R Us, Ideally a new camera rather than a repackaged old camera. News. It seems like you have a very unique opinion, which make no sence to anyone else. What is the difference between gold or silver award, and what is their relation to percentage rating ? This many 'What we don'ts" and it still got a silver? Photographers are not a homogenous lot when it comes to taste! The Sony A7C’s spec list most similarly resembles the similarly priced Sony a7III, but there is some give and take between the two cameras. It is as if the sensor designers in Sony get the attention, while the guys doing the body and UI get half pay and work in the basement. And during my vacation I do not look at the photos, rather take more... "THOUGHTS" = Paid Pro-Canon & Anti-Sony Propagandist. No one was complaining that the other mirrorless FF bodies were too large. They have the great specs but really don't seem to know how to design for real people. This shows that people want this form factor, and Sony is the only brand that offers it. Sure. Introduction. I bought it for three reasons:1. super small and compact to standard APS-C DSLRs2. Have a look at our initial sample gallery taken on a full-frame Sony body. I think Sony purposefully dumbed down the A7c so that it wouldn't compete with the A7iii. For those who'd buy the a7III anyway for its advantages, again it makes no sense for Sony to sell them that at $1700 when they could get $2000. But there's a price to be paid, and this isn't necessarily a budget option. A7C has a processor that is improved over A7iii, https://www.dpreview.com/news/9768716484/sony-announces-a6400-midrange-aps-c-mirrorless-camera. Well, although it has a type-C port it still can't record to USB-devices, unfortunately. @entoman: For me WYSYWIG is very important! That's why all the higher end cameras tend to be bigger in size. Possibly when a few issues of new marks come out. Do Alphas have a processing limitation or is it Sony's incompetence for the lack of lossless RAW? This is a miss-mash of stuff they already had; it's thrilled no one in the market and has generally received a lukewarm to poor reception. This seems definitely hefty margin low volume equipment. Why could not you just take an admittedly more expensive, hi res HiQ and a little bit bulkier EVF with e.g. Secondly, it doesn't in any way represent the image that we finally print, or finally view on our computer monitors, because all serious photographers will make substantial changes to shadows and highlights in post (not to mention colour balance, saturation, cropping etc). For most it is an enjoyable hobby that few will ever truly master. But why does “fashion” dictate that a RF-style “Flat Top” should have a side hinged LCD? Video seems negligable on this. With the a7c you can. Sony should know above all that once you show an advancement you cannot just go backwards and expect your customers to accept that. This means the scoring system doesn't have to be clairvoyant and anticipate the subtly different priorities and demands of different types of camera. Senior Editor Barney Britton's Gear of the Year part two details how he ended up with a Reflex-Nikkor 1000mm F11, and despite its quirks, why it was ideal for a creative project in the COVID-era. They have great technical talent but for some reason their UX team lacks. Popular and liked amongst its small potential number of users possibly but a huge hit seems a strange expectation for a rather specialised expensive camera considering the average ILC shipped price on CIPA of $854 mirrorless last month and DSLRs still hanging on and selling at $426. 5. But they've messed up again by compromising on ergonomics and usability. No way would I consider any camera with a sub-par viewfinder. RubberDials Of course Sony has better sensors! Our team at DPReview TV spent the week shooting with the new Sony a7C. You'd think after all of these years they would have learned. It handles very well. Sony’s newest fullframe mirrorless camera – the Sony a7C ($1,798 Body | $2,098 with FE 28-60mm lens) is the smallest fullframe camera with in-camera image stabilization. If you were to think for half a second, trying to step out of your fanboyism, you would surely find lots of simpler hypotheses why the guy is posting what he's posting. He dances around the question but has never directly denied getting compensated for his work. So again, following the idea that Sony wants to sell you a camera in this price category at the highest they can, they'd rather sell you the a7iii at $1699 than have to discount the a7c to let's say, $1499. I'm sure my criticism is mostly aimed at Panasonic and Sony because those have been my preferred brands, so that's what I'm mostly following. With Sony A7c, you can record your videos at a highest resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 30p,25p,24p fps with bit rates up to 100 mbps and save in MPEG-4, XAVC S and H.264 formats. Or take more. You then look at a company like Pentax which does the opposite. And this ain't no Leica, either. It's their normal practice at this time of year! If the a7c were selling like hotcakes in this price segment, then Sony would have no need to lower the price of the a7III. As it stands, it’s an outstanding option for those wanting the full-frame experience, in a more portable and versatile package. You don't have to like the camera but the last thing it is 'made up of old parts'. But no, a tiny low magnification EVF might be acceptable on a novice-level budget camera, but not on a hi-end FF model at this price. Ever. So it's hard to correlate forum comments with sales. Overall, this is the camera I originally wanted when moving to e-mount. Left/Right Eye selection - this works in unexpected way and provides control over selecting the person to focus on, 2. This wonderful new all full frame tomorrow when crop sensors are no more is not coming at even moderate costs obviously if you want small. They are not a charity. It is not for everyone. The price: no argument, it is overpriced. Commenting that the A7C will fail because it doesn't have dual cards or the latest processor. in another universe in quality of parts? When we buy a camera, what we personally like (brand, features, sensor size, lenses, etc.) This is what a lot of people want in a mirrorless camera. I am sure this model will be a big seller for Sony. I hope the manufacturers are not basing their plans too much on what they read here. Some say better than a7iii), 9. 1. The f/4-5.6 on the a7c is equivalent to f/2.8-4 on the x-t4, so it's not *that* slow (and not slower than the x-t4 kit lenses). How do you know the GX8 didnt sell well because of its FAS? Let them buy this compact A7C at two grand and be happy with it. I'd like to take a peek through an a7siii, with its 9.44K EVF, just to see if it changes my mind though. If the A7C wasn't selling, they would discount the A7C, not the A7III. Sometimes big is small and small is big..Leaves are falling in droves on the road.I can't see the road clearlyIt is autumn... sigh.. More than likely this is an idea they've had no the shelf for over a year but now just decided to release it. But Sony hasn't discounted the a7iii until now. They're not really the same specs. Excellent IQ, particularly w/r to low-light photography3. You are talking out of your rear end, as usual. So sure comments are a sign of interest. But I feel the next upgrade to this will be decent. Why shoukd they? This is why I think the price will come down fairly soon. How could Kodak miss out on the digital imaging revolution? Say what you want.Sony people have been asked for this camera for years and Sony finally delivered. The award is an overall assessment of how well the camera works for the target audience discussed in the review. From the first reports of this camera, its features and compromises, it became clear: The Mark II version of this camera is probably going to be the one I will buy. Fujifilm's 3.00 firmware update adds a new Pixel Shift Mult-Shot mode to its GFX 100 camera that works alongside a new Pixel Shift Combiner program to output 400MP Raw images made up from 16 individual still images. A lot of work has clearly gone into making this one of the smallest full frame cameras available, whereas a lot of the features and capabilities are familiar. It also features nearly 150 wonderful images from past Olympics games. Actually, no...at least in the US, the $1999 price of the a7iii has held up until now...many Sony fans were always bragging about that...about how it has held up so well in sales that it never merited a price reduction. How about my prediction yeah or neah? I would rather buy an A7iii but I was not the target audience. Then the touchpad works as joystick. I suppose my minor purchase preferences are of no account: I would have bought an A7c yesterday with a tilt LCD screen.I would have bought an Olympus Pen-F last year if it had a tilt LCD screen.I would have bought a Panasonic GX8 the year before if it had a tilt LCD screen. It's also the one they're bundling with an X-T30 for what, $1400 and there's 10 bit video on offer? Sony A7C review so far. @ StoneJack: Your comment tells much more about you, than what you try to tell us. Not using the latest hardware gives them plenty of room to discount the price. It takes the best of the Alpha line and it puts it into a smaller form factor. IQ is very reminiscent of Canon IQ. My problem is that they could have kept the joystick.. it's just weird also not to have one single C1 button, just one at least you know. Thats my point also. Sony ooc colors have improved a lot over the years. I got the small sucker for it's size and weight. For now, the app is in beta and limited to a handful of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, but as development continues, it's safe to assume support for other Android devices is on the way. Well worth the compromise for a flat top easy shape to pack camera body. I only meant to share few small details that may be useful to Sony owners and probably do not make sense in a review as the one you put together. The Sony A7C with the Sony 28-60mm f/4-5.6 kit lens On the video side, there isn’t too much new here. The event, which will show off a new 'DN' lens for mirrorless camera systems, is set to take place at 7am ET (4am PT) on December 1. sony is the biggest milc brand in the world, they didn't create the a7c out of thin air, winging it on a gamble. This thing's more expensive than the PS5. In 5 years it will still be on the market but by then it will be $800.00 and will have sold the most units of any FF mirrorless ever. I agree that there people on this site are detached from reality though. I'm a little disappointed with the side by side size comparison pictures. I had the a5100 to start with that got me interested in e-mount and supplemented my old a77ii. Wrong mount. MIOPS has announced Flex, a new smart camera gadget designed to make it easy and simple to capture lightning strikes, action images, holy grail timelapse videos and much more. Sony are not exactly giving an optimistic signal here of what can be achieved with the format and what the future is. The a7c you can get today...no problem. The GX8 was a great flat top that did not sell well - side hinged LCD. Take a look at some Raw conversions and additional images shot during our testing of the Silver Award-winning Sony a7C. The "true compact and small" camera by Sony was the RX1 and version II. And this might be the biggest problem. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing around $2000 and recommended the best. It is not upgrade ot A7iii or A7r3 for sure. Too much trolling red, trolling green, trolling yellow, etc. The 'One Shot' documentary highlights the incredible amount of preparation and work involved in photographers capturing iconic moments in Olympic history. No one does that unless they are either getting paid by Canon or are just insane. Most would be better better taking courses and practising rather than buying new gear. Have they succeeded with the new Sony A7C, and is it a great camera in its own right? The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI is pretty close but the zoom range is a little short and the lens is relatively slow at 2.5-4.5. Compact size, full-frame power. A7iii is great and is almost 3 year old camera now. Since the conept is not revoultionary, my guess is that the price will adjust to oter similar spec-ed cameras soon, unless the camera sells very well. The 24mm F3.5, 35mm F2 and 65mm F2 DG DN share similar designs and have weather-sealed metal bodies. ▸ Sony a7C Review As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. The Canon RF 800mm F11's unique combination of telephoto reach, affordability and light weight will likely enable even more people to do the same. @janist74: Let us know how the camera works out for you. The Sony a7C is the latest mirrorless camera in Sony's popular a7 line, and it offers a different design from past bodies that is much more compact. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. In our latest buying guide we've selected some cameras that might be a bit older but still offer a lot of bang for the buck. You know, a picture is worth a thousand words. @Ent - I don't think anyone suggest you shouldn't. I despise the SLR design so widely used in full frame mirrorless cameras - the stupid hump on the top is real real bad if you want to put your camera in smaller bag. Not very good if you're left eye dominant, have average or large hands, or are waiting for the DSLR successor to the A 77 III which I despise Sony for dropping. Who would guess this? 19 November 2020 / 13:29GMT. Both cameras offer a resolution of 24 megapixels. The Sony a7C is available at a price of around $1799 ($2399 CAD) or with the new collapsible 28-60mm F4-5.6 kit zoom for around $2099 ($2699 CAD). Kit zooms are always slow, at least this one is small. by Jeremy Gray and William Brawley Preview posted: 09/14/2020 Updates: 10/26/2020: First Shots added 11/05/2020: Gallery Images added I guess too much was riding on that; they consider their video game division to be one of their most important and so make sure to get UX done well. Sony selectively reduces prices when they need to. @zephyriion974 Maybe not just the Alpha series. If you already have the A7-III there is no good sensible reason to get this sucker. Photographer and YouTuber Todd Dominey has shared a video that details the history of Kodak Aerochrome film, a film stock he says has 'an origin story unlike any other.'. This camera will be the full frame A6000. Do comment posts equal sales? The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to stay with my DSLRs. The Leica Q2 Monochrom is a version of the Gold Award-winning Q2 that only shoots images in black and white. @Thoughts R Us - "The fact that Sony just recently lowered the price of the a7III is a sign that the a7c is not selling that great". This could make it a powerful travel or family camera. On modern Sony cameras you have to dig pretty manic into pixel peeping and close to the noise floor to see any differences between these two raw file formats. Full-frame sensor in APS-C sized body 5-axis IBIS Forward-facing touch LCD Superlative tracking autofocus 10fps continuous drive 4K video with flat and HDR looks available Best-in-class battery life I made the following video all about using Gyro Data on the A7c as while is has huge potential, there are a number of technical aspects to be aware of, most notably using a wide lens to accommodate the crop and a faster than normal shutter speed to minimise motion artefacts.

sony a7c review

@Entoman I can set my EVF cameras to fire off as many three, five, or seven shot brackets as I want to, within one second for each bracket of exposures. Oh, and it's a lot of fun too. I was referring to the technical aspects of the images themselves, not the quality of the photographs. D3500 for better colot, Ken Rockwell, fab resolution and fill flash incl. Yes but half the tonnage each year the ways things are going. Sony is introducing a new kit zoom with the a7C, the FE 28-60mm F4-5.6. So you can indeed have back up storage. Is this then the entry level price for a compact squeezing all the bits in to the smallest box? Now there is A6000 styled full frame at long last. Sorry but your argument makes no sense. Despite all the complaints on here, the A7C will be a huge hit. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1594029-REG/sony_ilce7c_s_sony_alpha_a7c_mirrorless.html. I think it's more like, while competition is still sorting out how to create and sell a mirrorless platform, Sony has the maturity to start producing niche products. The Sony Alpha A7C is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that was revealed to the public in September 2020 and is equipped with a full frame sensor. Sigma has introduced its new 'I series' of compact, premium full-frame lenses for E and L mounts. Sony A7C Comparison Review. I wanted this camera since A7 original shipped. Marcus Sundman: Companies use paid "influencers" to promote their products on social media forums. First, Sony may not want to discount a brand new model simply due to brand image. All words, images, videos and layout, copyright 2005-2020 Gordon Laing. You can chose between lossy compressed raw and lossless raw. I see the colour trolls are in good fooling today. I'd like to see that also. The Sony a7C packs a full-frame sensor and an impressive list of features into a very compact body. This site receives support when the B&H and other links provided are used to make any purchase. Aiming to save photographers carrying a cable and a charger for every battery they use, this device handles up to four batteries at the same time and can charge at home, in the car and via a USB power bank. Is that correct?Can someone confirm that. Adorama has both the silver and the black cameras in stock as a kit. IIRC i purchased it in a brick and mortar shop for around 500 bucks. Announced in September 2020 and aimed at upgraders from APSC bodies, vloggers or simply those wanting a second full-frame body, it represents a new design in the A7 series and while it shares a number of capabilities with the A7 III, it does not replace that model. But what's it like to use, and how does it stack up against Sony's own a7 III? @Richard Butler thank you for the extensive review. If the a7c did not exist, then I would understand why Sony discounted the a7iii. Great camera in small body. II (A7C-R) will have some upgrades in these areas, better viewfinder, more resolution. If you're looking for a high-quality camera, you don't need to spend a ton of cash, nor do you need to buy the latest and greatest new product on the market. Sony is just killing it IMHO. It seems Canon is doomed to make the same mistake with the rumoured small IBIS full frame compact blah blah blah. "If the A7C wasn't selling, they would discount the A7C, not the A7III. without having our fingers feeling cramped and/or ergonomics sacrificed. My X-E1 had a built in flash, was compact like this, in 2012. As we continue to test Nikon's update of its multimedia full-framer, we've added more of our findings so far on image quality, dynamic range and video quality. BTW, why do you hate Sony so much? MILCs are now so similar in specification and performance, that companies need to offer something different in order to attract attention. And they wouldn't need to if the a7c were selling well. Try to make a larger camera body more compact. Except some exotic 6K and 8K video recording cameras, 4K is the new standard in consumer video world. Possibly the future unless the Chinese move in. The score is heavily weighted towards the results of objective testing, with some subjective factors, such as ergonomics factored in to a lesser degree. These £2,000 devices are just going to fly off the shelves I am sure to get that extra stop or two we all so desperately need beyond our daily needs. No camera reputable company (including Canon) pays people to leave negative comments about a competitors brand. The a7C produces both Raw and JPEG images that are a match for any of its peers. Canon got it wrong by putting 8K in a camera when no one really wanted it or needed it, resulting in a product that is vastly overpriced compared to a Panasonic S1R, Sony a7Riv or Nikon Z7. Well, the there was one discussion on the Canon 1DX Mark III that had far more comments, I believe about 2000. No wonder they are losing market share like crazy. That's how Sony views this: as a price segment of the market and the lower priced a7iii is now being tasked to do the job that the a7c was supposed to do. it's funny how people who aren't in the camera business think that they know what the market wants... and they keep trying to tell us that the biggest and most innovative milc company on the planet is doing it all wrong, lol, sony got to be #1 in the milc business by doing market research with focus groups and sony owners, not random dpr posters who don't even have real names ;-). Chris and Jordan take a look at the new Sigma 35mm F2 and 65mm F2. You are the most ugly kind of personality on this forum. MILC man - "random dpr posters who don't even have real names". They don't understand that most consumers care more about looks and size. People care about size and looks. I'm carrying it around as a lightweight alternative to my A7r3 again. It seems there is even bigger difference. It is "always on" now if you want it to be. Speak for yourself. It's available in Canon EF, Fuji X, Leica M, M42, MFT, Nikon F, Pentax K and Sony E mounts and the first units are expected to ship in January 2021. on custom button -> 1 dial is enough 99% - EVF: like on the RX100. Do you work with him, or perhaps share the same alias ? Yes! Can't read all the comments but 1984 comments show this is an interesting Camera. Well, I think that Wesley related to the review article that states "clumsy compressed RAW".Personally I have never run into problems with Sony's compressed RAW format and have never experienced any sort of degradation of IQ. This is incrementally smaller, not so much as to make a significant difference from the other small FF MILCs. It offers a resolution of 24 megapixel. @MILCman: you wrote: "these companies have years of data about what sells and what doesn't sell, along with market studies and focus groups.". I remember their portable Discman players, their MP3 players, their VAIO notebooks. If I did a lot of this, I would set a Fn button for it.. one button away from as many brackets as I want of whatever type of bracket I want. It fits a 24MP full-frame sensor and image stabilization into a body more closely resembling the APS-C sensor a6600. Sony’s range of full-frame mirrorless cameras has been a … Of course large companies pour a lot of resources into market studies and trying to figure out what products to release and when. Presumably so that it could be left folded inwards and look like a film based Leica? To the point Canon and Nikon will be squeezing their mounts on a small body sooner rather than later. When evaluating the price, it needs to be stated, that the 5n was a top-tier, state of the art APSC camera back then.The A7c is certainly overall great and super compact, but it doesn't wholly carry the latest tech. Straw man argument. You should of done your homework before writing your arrogant and ill-informed comment. Talking about canikon "color science" just makes you sound like a parrot. Find out what we think about the brand new Sony a7C in this hands-*off* review! Sony a7C review. Second, the response to the a7c may be so poor that they'd have to discount it a lot. Now, THAT would make a lot of people buy it. Large companies doing market research have made mistakes. I read some of your posts - just like "Thoughts", you seem to spend a lot of your time bashing Sony. @aegarcia I don’t want a bridge camera, I want a compact full frame with interchangeable lenses and A7 class autofocus. Pixel Pooper, KZ7: I think the price is set pretty high since this is a new concept, and Sony want to test what people are willing to pay for such a camera. Today we are going to take the review of Sony A7C Camera. But this camera saves like 100g over say the Fuji x-t4 which is from another universe in quality of parts and functionality. But let's look at who this camera is aimed at. But the price put me off. Lossless raw and raw file compression are not mutually exclusive (an annoyance I have with my A7 II and they've still not fixed it). But I can wait it out, I have no justification for a new travel camera during a pandemic. So it is amazing. gfrensen - "it can give some privacy" - you really are *that* worried that someone might peek a look at your photos to see how good/bad they are? Not so with the a7c. Your cripple hammer has successfully destroyed the possibly iconic camera, next since Panasonic GF1! Or is it your incompetence to read basic specs? I did mention the separate Fn menu for movie mode (on the video page), but I doubt I'd have ever found every one of those differences. Sony’s years of being the only full-frame mirrorless provider have made them lazy indeed. And I can't give up my A7Riv resolution. The Pen-F was a great flat top that did not sell well- side hinged LCD. This product has you covered both ways. The fact that Sony just recently lowered the price of the a7III is a sign that the a7c is not selling that great and preorders were weak. Ironically, their PlayStation products don't suffer from this; there they didn't mess around and made sure to get the ergonomics and user experience down right. Most likely Sony had it developed a while ago, decided to not go with it, but then brought it back to give them a new camera to release for the holidays. Plenty of great street shooter cameras to draw inspiration from to make this one special but feels a bit lazy in execution (to me). This camera is small and sleek, has great IQ, great AF, and a fantastic selection of lenses. You should not set the function to take photo with the touch screen. Fujifilm has announced a special version of its 100MP GFX 100 for infrared imaging. I ended up using the a5100 more due to its size and convenience but wanted better quality but didn’t think the then a6000 or a6100 justified the cost. Hmm, Sony revolution is going backwards. This year, despite the disruption, plenty of amazing cameras, lenses, accessories and other products came through our doors. The reaction on social media, which is esp important to Sony, has been tepid at best to the a7c. Dpreview tested the new Sony A7c and concluded: The Sony a7C is gives up very little in the way of features in order to achieve its small size. The Alpha 7C is a compact body without compromising full-frame camera performance, advanced AF (autofocus) performance, and high-resolution 4K video capabilities. The means of the average user on this site and those of the people outside of it seem to become more detached by the minute. See, it makes no sense for Sony to do that unless they are not persuading many buyers with the a7c. So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. My understanding is that Sony A7C has the processor, menu system and AF from A6400 and A7r4. The Sony a7C forgoes Sony’s typical pattern of leapfrogging its own lineup with a headline-grabbing camera release for something that’s more vanilla. You can start with a sledgehammer. Yes, they play it safe, but innovation is not when you put a higher res VF or sensor into a camera. You're really trying too hard to prove your speculation! What can be done?! I can read the size measurements, but side by side pictures provide a better reference. Sorry Sony, stick with your pricey color TVs.gone. Agreed. Lossless uncompressed is redundant. My A7s is 470g with the battery, which comes in at 50g itself. This is how tribe members argue. There have been some Leica cameras that got a lot of comments, like the Q2 and some M models but that doesn't mean they sell in great quantity. They know how to make high quality EVFs and LCD screens. This camera looks like it was made for me and my needs, but the obvious and fixable shortcomings are keeping my credit card in my pocket. There is no direct connection between percentage and award (otherwise the award ends up being the same thing, stated with less precision). It seems like their Alpha cameras are really interesting only starting from their Mark II versions, like the a7 II, RX1 II, RX0 II and now this one...I hope they will correct the bad things about the a7C in the next version . Why? @Thoughts R UsI've never seen an OP like you lose every argument in a post like you just did. Leica Q2, Zeiss ZV1) appeal to a small segment of the market who are willing to pay prices that seem outrageous to those who don't like or want those products! Sony have new menus already, so why not use them in their actual newest camera? BRAVO SONY!!! No joystick feels like a downgrade honestly, this camera has bad ergonomics compared to A7-III. Check out the winners of the 2020 DPReview Awards! Yes MILC man that's right. Well very few people are any good at photography. This is what videographers would have to accept with this sensor.

IMO, the A7c should have been priced to compete against the Nikon Z5. D'uh! I wish Canon and Nikon would carry on producing new DSLR models instead of leaving it to Pentax. Stop arguing with Sony fanboys. This is purely just a parts bin camera. Foto-erhardt DE. My hope is that the pandemic fades out, easy travel resumes, then I will need a camera like this and I hope by then the A7C Mark II fixes most or all of the deal breakers that currently exist on it. Sony a7C vs Sony a7 III: Which is better? The RX100 series has improved greatly through its 7 versions. This is what people want from mirrorless, not big ugly DSLR clones. Mr Bolton - Yes of course the same bracketing can be achieved just as easily with a MILC. Like MILC said they do not have real time tracking. Posted in gallery, Gear Review, Geekery, Photo, photography, Sony, Technology By Eric L. Woods 2 Replies to “Camera Review: Sony A7c – Part 2. I really like the size, weight. (On which, I'm assuming you can do the same thing). Admittedly I did not get it at first but once I got my head fully around the specs the rest was a blur. Saved a lot of pictures for me.And when exposure is of by say one stop or so, shooting RAW can help too, no need for bracketing (although it can come in handy and as this is not linked to the type of VF it makes no difference what camera you have.And Yes I do like the capabilitie of checking the pictures I took in the EVF, it can give some privacy but also in direct sunlight it can be the only way. @mikegt, so you have zero proof of your insane allegations, and you have no clue about business tactics either. The last real contender was the (brilliant) A73. There's always hope that they fix it in v2. It needs to be high quality. Check back soon for lots more results and samples! All camera companies need to realize that they should put a great EVF in all of their mirrorless offerings...it will make a big difference on the user experience and even on first impressions for customers deciding to purchase. Not having a tiny built in flash was an odd omission. With a 1.8x squeeze, the lens produces a more pronounced anamorphic effect than the 1.33x lenses offered by Sirui, albeit at a much higher cost. Above all, though, Sony is marketing this camera to photographers and content creators who want to keep things small and light…which includes the new FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 retractable kit zoom lens. In the meantime, this release has oddly made me feel newly happy about my old A7. As the announcement page for A6400 says the processor is updated to latest generation i.e. Thirdly, I can shoot off a bracketed series of 3 shots far faster on a DSLR, than I can twiddle the compensation knob and analyse the monitor of a MILC. Well, we got to admit that it is a move in the right direction for FF cameras. This excellent video review takes a … Sony have changed a thing or two in the follow on releases. My entry in the interchangeable mirrorless camera was in late 2011 with the venerable Sony Nex 5n. Here is a thread on a couple of them. The colors are OK. Instead of introducing A7C, Sony should update the RX1/II models, perhaps without the Zeiss lens to reduce the price. It obtains most of its high-end capabilities in a form factor almost unseen in this segment. A camera that scores highly is more likely to get a gold award (because it tests well), but it's not guaranteed. My A7s is much smaller than the latest crop of A7/A9 cameras. Photo News. Sony A7C Review -- Now Shooting! If you'll notice, it's not only the a7iii that got a lower price.... so did the a9, a7Riv, a7Riii, a7ii, etc. Since you double-posted, here is my double reply: Companies use paid "influencers" to promote their products on social media forums. So I am extremely happy with it. It skips stabilization (the feature is built into the camera body), and adds $300 to … "Well, it's a bit more complex than that. How's that slower than a DSLR? Unless you have some proof of your insane conspiracy theory nonsense just go back to your anti-vaxx flat earth fake moonlanding circles. Sony a7C vs Sony a7 III: Which is better? Ultimately, though, both are less nuanced assessments than the conclusion text, which is itself less detailed than the full review text. Take a closer look. No need to get sad over this one. Know of at least 2 people who were waiting for exactly this kind of camera. This argument makes no sense. You get paid to lie. It helps then you start with more pleasing colors the way you want them...and some color problems just can't be fixed in post. The point I was making was that for me, the ability to bracket exposures makes the WYSIWYG aspect of MILCs redundant. In this case they could have innovated and found a way to put a nice high res EVF into a body this size. @Wiel: my point is that with some other more popular releases, like the Sony a7sIII and Canon R5/R6, at launch time you could't find a single one in stock. They're competent, but pixel peeping shows no notable advantage over a lot of less expensive crop sensor offerings. I will not state here what I think of TRU but he isn’t getting paid! Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. It skips stabilization (the feature is built into the camera body), and adds $300 to … I am glad that you think my comments are worthy of paid compensation. Do you want to spend a lot of time editing while on vacation? Personally, apart from the size there is nothing that interesting with the image quality, its a decent ff sensor and 24mp is good enough most of the time. As a photographer, imagine being forced to shoot JPEG only. That makes for an interesting comparison and perhaps will address the question of if people will pay a premium for a smaller camera. Add the needed fill/light flash and the whole smallness exercise collapses. Sony are attempting to turn the camera world on its head by creating a new 35mm full-frame camera that's the same size and weight as one with a smaller APS-C sensor. Neither the Canon R's nor Nikon Z's are the size of their DSLR counterparts...not really close. Marcus Sundman: I have a simple answer for a nasty troll like you: Firmly shove everything you wrote back up where it came from. This new camera might as well have been simply sitting on the shelf, designed a couple of years ago. Fotokoch DE. Dynamic range is excellent but you need to shoot large, uncompressed Raw files to get the full benefit. Sony a7C Hands-on Review + comparisons to Sony a7 III, Best Mid-Range Full Frame Mirrorless: Canon R6, Sony a7 III, Nikon Z6 II, Panasonic S5. But that doesn't make them immune to some miscues. What’s the best camera for less than $1000? Probably women with small hands who would like to put big long lens on small mounts... *sounds too frivolous ..Hmm. There was a rumor last year that a camera like this was going to come out. Among still photographers, the camera is aimed at those who want small and light, probably mostly for travel. Vaporware no more: the much-speculated-about Zeiss ZX1 has arrived. It is not so tall as other cameras and is a bit lighter. It features the same hybrid autofocus system as higher-end models, with "Real-time Tracking" and Eye AF for both humans and animals. So when a7c was announced I was immediately thrilled. Unfortunately, Sony forgot to differentiate the price between the two. They prefer to take them and share them. The best cameras for under $1000 should have good ergonomics and controls, great image quality and be capture high-quality video. That's why so many competing brands continue to exist! And while a retracting kit lens doesn’t sound like a recipe for optical excellence, the FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 delivers edge-to-edge sharpness right across the zoom range. I only asked as he compared the camera to the Z6 II. Whom they will market it for? So once again TRU is talking nonsens . They have yet to receive the individual cameras without the kit lens. Want to buy it? Way to go Sony! If only... > you think my comments are worthy of paid compensation. Preorders have not been that great. Canon and Nikon spoil us in that regard; they better understand the photographer experience using a camera. The biggest news around the Sony A7C is its design, which is like a fusion of the Sony A7 III and the Sony A6600. This site seems increasingly like some sort of fantasy island entirely cut off from the real world. $2,400CAD?!? Plus most basic entry level body have a built in flash as standard. If you want a Sony bridge go for a Sony rx10 iv. Try aa D3500, VividX3 sharrpnesX5 ,cloudy setting white balance, and 81A filter. The Canon EOS Rebel T8i (also known as the EOS 850D or Kiss X10i in some markets) is a 24MP DSLR aimed at first-time DSLR buyers and enthusiasts. Every time TRU makes a comment he will be there as well defending his brand blindly. View our sample gallery to see how a bit of shift can change a photo or introduce creative effects. I've added front and rear shots, side-by-side with the a7 III at the top of page 3. The A7C is currently more expensive than the higher specced A7III, so there is definitely room to move. Sony always discounts their products at this time of year! It keeps being mentioned by dpreview that the eye af is better on this camera as “you don't have to hold down a second button to utilize eye-detection” as with the a7iii, but you don’t on the a7iii with the latest firmware. The pics are OK.. but honestly nothing a lot of other cameras-including small sized ones-can't do for less, especially with this very average kit lens. The screen can work as joystick (same as A7r3. To have a large sensor in a small body, to natively have access to some great Sony … Sony prices up to then can be very sticky. In movie mode the shutter can start recording or you can assign the movie button in movie mode to start/stop recording. Sometimes it holds true, sometimes not. DEAR CAMERA MAKER, PLEASE INVEST $50-$100 MORE in HI QUAL MATERIALS AND MECHANICS FOR A SMALL BODIED CAMERA!Well, the camera industry is not hearing to enthusiasts since years, they are too concentrated on short term revenue and Megapixel Wars...Too sad and frustrating...SONY and CANON are surely not going to die next, b/c of business diversity, BUT YOU, NIKON, with your huge new mount and even huger arrogance, how do you want to sell all the great Z6/Z7 (m2) to the crowd who just take the phoneThe bell tolls ;-). There are 2 unassigned buttons out of the box the C (garbage can) and down button. If your here you care about that extra stop or two of light. Expensive lousy little lensholder - bronze at max. 232. So yes, way chunkier and heavier, and they way I use my camera that added bulk and weight does indeed make a big difference. Fuji's 18-55mm kit lens is the same equivalent speed, made largely of metal, and optically superior to this kit. I find it curiously interesting that Sony dropped the price of the A7iii to $1700, which makes it $100 cheaper than the a7c. Go like a fujichrome velvia 50. Adapters? The only other 24mp sensors are are the older one in the A7II/Z5 and the faster one in the A9/A9II, which has reduced dynamic range and is too expensive for this camera. The rear camera (or cameras) on an iPhone has all the latest bells and whistles, but how do you use them to capture a selfie or record a video of yourself? So I am not quite shocked when you say "straw arguments" here. The firm has used a monocoque design, with the main components fixed to the weather-sealed magnesium alloy shell, rather than an internal chassis. Panasonic S5 vs Sony A7C. A number of people are having these problems and some are returning their cameras because of it (read through the thread). Preorders: In the USA at BHphoto, Adorama, Amazon, FocusCamera. Most obviously while all A7 bodies to date have employed DSLR-styling with a central viewfinder hump, the A7C becomes the first in the range to adopt a flat-topped rangefinder style like the A6000 series with the viewfinder positioned in the top left corner; indeed at virtually the same size and weight as the A6600, the A7C becomes Sony’s smallest and lightest full-frame body to date. I don't know if small equates to less features. Such a shame the a7c is the price that it is, but maybe in a year I’ll get it as a second full frame body assuming an a7iv doesn’t tempt me.... Small evf - no issue - it works doesn’t it? The VF is literally the single most important user interface on a camera for most. It’s the world’s smallest full-frame system camera – and there’s no big catch . The gear is part of the hobby and it is easier to upgrade gear than to become a better photographer. I'll definitely add a mention of the 5Ghz WiFi. This camera is Sony playing to its strengths. @Thoughts R Us, Ideally a new camera rather than a repackaged old camera. News. It seems like you have a very unique opinion, which make no sence to anyone else. What is the difference between gold or silver award, and what is their relation to percentage rating ? This many 'What we don'ts" and it still got a silver? Photographers are not a homogenous lot when it comes to taste! The Sony A7C’s spec list most similarly resembles the similarly priced Sony a7III, but there is some give and take between the two cameras. It is as if the sensor designers in Sony get the attention, while the guys doing the body and UI get half pay and work in the basement. And during my vacation I do not look at the photos, rather take more... "THOUGHTS" = Paid Pro-Canon & Anti-Sony Propagandist. No one was complaining that the other mirrorless FF bodies were too large. They have the great specs but really don't seem to know how to design for real people. This shows that people want this form factor, and Sony is the only brand that offers it. Sure. Introduction. I bought it for three reasons:1. super small and compact to standard APS-C DSLRs2. Have a look at our initial sample gallery taken on a full-frame Sony body. I think Sony purposefully dumbed down the A7c so that it wouldn't compete with the A7iii. For those who'd buy the a7III anyway for its advantages, again it makes no sense for Sony to sell them that at $1700 when they could get $2000. But there's a price to be paid, and this isn't necessarily a budget option. A7C has a processor that is improved over A7iii, https://www.dpreview.com/news/9768716484/sony-announces-a6400-midrange-aps-c-mirrorless-camera. Well, although it has a type-C port it still can't record to USB-devices, unfortunately. @entoman: For me WYSYWIG is very important! That's why all the higher end cameras tend to be bigger in size. Possibly when a few issues of new marks come out. Do Alphas have a processing limitation or is it Sony's incompetence for the lack of lossless RAW? This is a miss-mash of stuff they already had; it's thrilled no one in the market and has generally received a lukewarm to poor reception. This seems definitely hefty margin low volume equipment. Why could not you just take an admittedly more expensive, hi res HiQ and a little bit bulkier EVF with e.g. Secondly, it doesn't in any way represent the image that we finally print, or finally view on our computer monitors, because all serious photographers will make substantial changes to shadows and highlights in post (not to mention colour balance, saturation, cropping etc). For most it is an enjoyable hobby that few will ever truly master. But why does “fashion” dictate that a RF-style “Flat Top” should have a side hinged LCD? Video seems negligable on this. With the a7c you can. Sony should know above all that once you show an advancement you cannot just go backwards and expect your customers to accept that. This means the scoring system doesn't have to be clairvoyant and anticipate the subtly different priorities and demands of different types of camera. Senior Editor Barney Britton's Gear of the Year part two details how he ended up with a Reflex-Nikkor 1000mm F11, and despite its quirks, why it was ideal for a creative project in the COVID-era. They have great technical talent but for some reason their UX team lacks. Popular and liked amongst its small potential number of users possibly but a huge hit seems a strange expectation for a rather specialised expensive camera considering the average ILC shipped price on CIPA of $854 mirrorless last month and DSLRs still hanging on and selling at $426. 5. But they've messed up again by compromising on ergonomics and usability. No way would I consider any camera with a sub-par viewfinder. RubberDials Of course Sony has better sensors! Our team at DPReview TV spent the week shooting with the new Sony a7C. You'd think after all of these years they would have learned. It handles very well. Sony’s newest fullframe mirrorless camera – the Sony a7C ($1,798 Body | $2,098 with FE 28-60mm lens) is the smallest fullframe camera with in-camera image stabilization. If you were to think for half a second, trying to step out of your fanboyism, you would surely find lots of simpler hypotheses why the guy is posting what he's posting. He dances around the question but has never directly denied getting compensated for his work. So again, following the idea that Sony wants to sell you a camera in this price category at the highest they can, they'd rather sell you the a7iii at $1699 than have to discount the a7c to let's say, $1499. I'm sure my criticism is mostly aimed at Panasonic and Sony because those have been my preferred brands, so that's what I'm mostly following. With Sony A7c, you can record your videos at a highest resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 30p,25p,24p fps with bit rates up to 100 mbps and save in MPEG-4, XAVC S and H.264 formats. Or take more. You then look at a company like Pentax which does the opposite. And this ain't no Leica, either. It's their normal practice at this time of year! If the a7c were selling like hotcakes in this price segment, then Sony would have no need to lower the price of the a7III. As it stands, it’s an outstanding option for those wanting the full-frame experience, in a more portable and versatile package. You don't have to like the camera but the last thing it is 'made up of old parts'. But no, a tiny low magnification EVF might be acceptable on a novice-level budget camera, but not on a hi-end FF model at this price. Ever. So it's hard to correlate forum comments with sales. Overall, this is the camera I originally wanted when moving to e-mount. Left/Right Eye selection - this works in unexpected way and provides control over selecting the person to focus on, 2. This wonderful new all full frame tomorrow when crop sensors are no more is not coming at even moderate costs obviously if you want small. They are not a charity. It is not for everyone. The price: no argument, it is overpriced. Commenting that the A7C will fail because it doesn't have dual cards or the latest processor. in another universe in quality of parts? When we buy a camera, what we personally like (brand, features, sensor size, lenses, etc.) This is what a lot of people want in a mirrorless camera. I am sure this model will be a big seller for Sony. I hope the manufacturers are not basing their plans too much on what they read here. Some say better than a7iii), 9. 1. The f/4-5.6 on the a7c is equivalent to f/2.8-4 on the x-t4, so it's not *that* slow (and not slower than the x-t4 kit lenses). How do you know the GX8 didnt sell well because of its FAS? Let them buy this compact A7C at two grand and be happy with it. I'd like to take a peek through an a7siii, with its 9.44K EVF, just to see if it changes my mind though. If the A7C wasn't selling, they would discount the A7C, not the A7III. Sometimes big is small and small is big..Leaves are falling in droves on the road.I can't see the road clearlyIt is autumn... sigh.. More than likely this is an idea they've had no the shelf for over a year but now just decided to release it. But Sony hasn't discounted the a7iii until now. They're not really the same specs. Excellent IQ, particularly w/r to low-light photography3. You are talking out of your rear end, as usual. So sure comments are a sign of interest. But I feel the next upgrade to this will be decent. Why shoukd they? This is why I think the price will come down fairly soon. How could Kodak miss out on the digital imaging revolution? Say what you want.Sony people have been asked for this camera for years and Sony finally delivered. The award is an overall assessment of how well the camera works for the target audience discussed in the review. From the first reports of this camera, its features and compromises, it became clear: The Mark II version of this camera is probably going to be the one I will buy. Fujifilm's 3.00 firmware update adds a new Pixel Shift Mult-Shot mode to its GFX 100 camera that works alongside a new Pixel Shift Combiner program to output 400MP Raw images made up from 16 individual still images. A lot of work has clearly gone into making this one of the smallest full frame cameras available, whereas a lot of the features and capabilities are familiar. It also features nearly 150 wonderful images from past Olympics games. Actually, no...at least in the US, the $1999 price of the a7iii has held up until now...many Sony fans were always bragging about that...about how it has held up so well in sales that it never merited a price reduction. How about my prediction yeah or neah? I would rather buy an A7iii but I was not the target audience. Then the touchpad works as joystick. I suppose my minor purchase preferences are of no account: I would have bought an A7c yesterday with a tilt LCD screen.I would have bought an Olympus Pen-F last year if it had a tilt LCD screen.I would have bought a Panasonic GX8 the year before if it had a tilt LCD screen. It's also the one they're bundling with an X-T30 for what, $1400 and there's 10 bit video on offer? Sony A7C review so far. @ StoneJack: Your comment tells much more about you, than what you try to tell us. Not using the latest hardware gives them plenty of room to discount the price. It takes the best of the Alpha line and it puts it into a smaller form factor. IQ is very reminiscent of Canon IQ. My problem is that they could have kept the joystick.. it's just weird also not to have one single C1 button, just one at least you know. Thats my point also. Sony ooc colors have improved a lot over the years. I got the small sucker for it's size and weight. For now, the app is in beta and limited to a handful of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, but as development continues, it's safe to assume support for other Android devices is on the way. Well worth the compromise for a flat top easy shape to pack camera body. I only meant to share few small details that may be useful to Sony owners and probably do not make sense in a review as the one you put together. The Sony A7C with the Sony 28-60mm f/4-5.6 kit lens On the video side, there isn’t too much new here. The event, which will show off a new 'DN' lens for mirrorless camera systems, is set to take place at 7am ET (4am PT) on December 1. sony is the biggest milc brand in the world, they didn't create the a7c out of thin air, winging it on a gamble. This thing's more expensive than the PS5. In 5 years it will still be on the market but by then it will be $800.00 and will have sold the most units of any FF mirrorless ever. I agree that there people on this site are detached from reality though. I'm a little disappointed with the side by side size comparison pictures. I had the a5100 to start with that got me interested in e-mount and supplemented my old a77ii. Wrong mount. MIOPS has announced Flex, a new smart camera gadget designed to make it easy and simple to capture lightning strikes, action images, holy grail timelapse videos and much more. Sony are not exactly giving an optimistic signal here of what can be achieved with the format and what the future is. The a7c you can get today...no problem. The GX8 was a great flat top that did not sell well - side hinged LCD. Take a look at some Raw conversions and additional images shot during our testing of the Silver Award-winning Sony a7C. The "true compact and small" camera by Sony was the RX1 and version II. And this might be the biggest problem. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing around $2000 and recommended the best. It is not upgrade ot A7iii or A7r3 for sure. Too much trolling red, trolling green, trolling yellow, etc. The 'One Shot' documentary highlights the incredible amount of preparation and work involved in photographers capturing iconic moments in Olympic history. No one does that unless they are either getting paid by Canon or are just insane. Most would be better better taking courses and practising rather than buying new gear. Have they succeeded with the new Sony A7C, and is it a great camera in its own right? The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI is pretty close but the zoom range is a little short and the lens is relatively slow at 2.5-4.5. Compact size, full-frame power. A7iii is great and is almost 3 year old camera now. Since the conept is not revoultionary, my guess is that the price will adjust to oter similar spec-ed cameras soon, unless the camera sells very well. The 24mm F3.5, 35mm F2 and 65mm F2 DG DN share similar designs and have weather-sealed metal bodies. ▸ Sony a7C Review As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. The Canon RF 800mm F11's unique combination of telephoto reach, affordability and light weight will likely enable even more people to do the same. @janist74: Let us know how the camera works out for you. The Sony a7C is the latest mirrorless camera in Sony's popular a7 line, and it offers a different design from past bodies that is much more compact. Now, as the year winds down, we're highlighting some of our standout products of the year. In our latest buying guide we've selected some cameras that might be a bit older but still offer a lot of bang for the buck. You know, a picture is worth a thousand words. @Ent - I don't think anyone suggest you shouldn't. I despise the SLR design so widely used in full frame mirrorless cameras - the stupid hump on the top is real real bad if you want to put your camera in smaller bag. Not very good if you're left eye dominant, have average or large hands, or are waiting for the DSLR successor to the A 77 III which I despise Sony for dropping. Who would guess this? 19 November 2020 / 13:29GMT. Both cameras offer a resolution of 24 megapixels. The Sony a7C is available at a price of around $1799 ($2399 CAD) or with the new collapsible 28-60mm F4-5.6 kit zoom for around $2099 ($2699 CAD). Kit zooms are always slow, at least this one is small. by Jeremy Gray and William Brawley Preview posted: 09/14/2020 Updates: 10/26/2020: First Shots added 11/05/2020: Gallery Images added I guess too much was riding on that; they consider their video game division to be one of their most important and so make sure to get UX done well. Sony selectively reduces prices when they need to. @zephyriion974 Maybe not just the Alpha series. If you already have the A7-III there is no good sensible reason to get this sucker. Photographer and YouTuber Todd Dominey has shared a video that details the history of Kodak Aerochrome film, a film stock he says has 'an origin story unlike any other.'. This camera will be the full frame A6000. Do comment posts equal sales? The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to stay with my DSLRs. The Leica Q2 Monochrom is a version of the Gold Award-winning Q2 that only shoots images in black and white. @Thoughts R Us - "The fact that Sony just recently lowered the price of the a7III is a sign that the a7c is not selling that great". This could make it a powerful travel or family camera. On modern Sony cameras you have to dig pretty manic into pixel peeping and close to the noise floor to see any differences between these two raw file formats. Full-frame sensor in APS-C sized body 5-axis IBIS Forward-facing touch LCD Superlative tracking autofocus 10fps continuous drive 4K video with flat and HDR looks available Best-in-class battery life I made the following video all about using Gyro Data on the A7c as while is has huge potential, there are a number of technical aspects to be aware of, most notably using a wide lens to accommodate the crop and a faster than normal shutter speed to minimise motion artefacts.
