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.
42.4MP full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS sensor
The Exmor R sensor's back-illuminated, gapless on-chip lens design increases light sensitivity and provides wide dynamic range, despite its high resolution of 42.4MP
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.
Greatly enhanced image processing
A new front-end LSI and BIONZ X™ boost processing speed and are teamed with the Exmor R™ sensor to deliver up to 15-stop dynamic range at low ISO sensitivity for stills, enabling richer tonal expression.
Wide standard ISO 100-32000 range
The standard ISO range has been extended to ISO 100-32000 (expandableto ISO 50-102400), and noise has been reduced by as much as a full stop in the mid sensitivity range.
Dual media slots, UHS-II support
With two media slots, including one that's UHS-II-compatible for fast data writing, the α7R III can simultaneously or relay record, separate RAW/JPEG data and stills/movies, and copy data between cards.
Extend shooting to professional length
The α7R III can use a NP-FZ100 battery with approx. 2.2 times as much capacity as a NP-FW50 battery. USB Type-C™ and Multi/Micro USB ports allow connection of external batteries for extended shooting.
14-bit RAW output for rich gradations
14-bit RAW format output contains rich tonal information from highlights to shadows, and is available even when shooting in silent or continuous mode.
Pixel Shift Multi Shooting (169-Megapixel Still Images)
This new Pixel Shift Multi Shooting reproduces still images that contain true-to-life detail, texture, color, and overall atmosphere.
3.69-million-dot Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder
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.
Shoot up to 76 images continuously
Capture up to 76 compressed RAW or JPEG images in a continuous burst. This allows you to confidently concentrate on burst shooting without distraction.
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.
Comprehensive Fast Hybrid AF coverage
399 phase-detection AF points covering approx. 68% of image area width and height plus 425 densely positioned contrast-detection AF points improve focus that might otherwise be unachievable.
Up to 2x faster (approx.) AF response
Thanks to much more responsive, enhanced Fast Hybrid AF, AF speed is up to approximately two times faster under dim lighting conditions.
AF tracking improved by approx. 2x
The AF algorithm inherited from the α9 accounts for two times more precise AF tracking for continuous shooting, even of complex or sudden movement.
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.
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.
Thanks to a new shutter unit with a fast-response coreless motor and a brake system, front and rear curtain mechanical shutter vibrations that can cause blur, is subdued to a minimum, while allowing high-speed continuous shooting at up to 10 frames per second. The shutter is also quiet, and has been tested for durability in excess of 500,000 shutter cycles.
New Multi-Selector: 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.
Grouping display for continuous shots
A series of photos shot in continuous mode can be reviewed as groups, play index display is improved, and continuous groups can be deleted or protected at once.
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.
My Menu: faster to your favorites
Register up to 30 frequently used items on the new My Menu for instant recall. You can create and customize an optimal menu for your own convenience.
Sync terminal available
A standard sync terminal is provided for convenient synchronization with studio flash units and other external lighting equipment.
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.
