Sony A7 III review: A peerless full-frame mirrorless camera

 

Sony's 24.2-megapixel A7 III is a near-perfect all-around mirrorless camera. You can fire bursts at 10 fps, capture sharp images with excellent dynamic range day or night, and autofocus accurately on fast-moving subjects or portraits. It also handles...

Stellar low-light/high ISO capability ; Much-improved handling ; Fast 10 fps shooting ; Excellent autofocus ; Sharpest 4K video of any Sony full-frame camera ; Double the battery life of the last model

EVF and viewfinder not quite as good as rivals ; Two SD card slots but only one is high-speed UHS-II ; Not as weather-resistant as the Fujifilm’s X-H1 ; No 10-bit video output like Panasonic’s GH5s

The Sony Alpha A7 III might not have the highest resolution, fastest shooting speed or best video quality. But by borrowing features from the flagship A9 and A7R III, it's uniformly excellent at everything.

Sony a7 III

 

The Sony a7 III is an entry-level full-frame camera that goes well beyond the basics in features, with excellent image quality, 10fps subject tracking, and 4K video capture.

24MP full-frame BSI sensor. 10fps with tracking. 5-axis stabilization. 4K HDR video. Silent shooting available. Tilting touch LCD. Dual SD slots. Vastly improved battery. Focus joystick. Flat profiles available.

Screen not true vari-angle. Only one card slot is UHS-II. No in-body flash. Accessory required for time-lapse. Shooting buffer must clear to start video. Dense menu system. Omits PC sync socket.

The Sony a7 III looks a lot like the a7 II, but the upgrades inside are palpable. Its sensor offers the same resolution, but the BSI design improves high ISO performance. The autofocus system is vastly improved, with much wider coverage and 10fps...

Put simply, the Sony a7 III is a new benchmark for full frame cameras due to its compelling combination of value and capability – and the fact that this series of cameras has come so far in less than five years is impressive in its own right. For...

Sony A7 III Review

 

Sony referred to the A7 III as a "basic model" during their early promotion, whether jokingly or not, but the A7 III is far from being basic. Indeed, it's so well-specced on paper that it surprised a lot of people who weren't expecting such a...

Sony A7 III Review: Flagship-grade AF in a camera you can actually afford

 

Sony's "entry-level" full-frame mirrorless camera undergoes its third revision, and by most counts, it's better than ever. The Sony A7 III comes with a new 24MP sensor, a faster processor, and an vastly-upgraded AF system, among other upgrades, and as...

New 24MP sensor offers excellent image quality; Outstanding high ISO performance and dynamic range; Improved JPEG colors; Improved build quality; Fast autofocus; Excellent 4K video; Very good battery life.

Buffer clearing can be slow even with fast UHS-II cards; UHS-II support only on one card slot; No losslessly compressed RAW option; Dedicated battery charger not included; Menus are still confusing; No built-in flash.
