A Review of the New Sony a7C Mirrorless Camera

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. This excellent video review takes a look at the new camera and what you can expect from working with it.

Coming to you from Lok Cheung, this great video review takes a look at the new Sony a7C mirrorless camera. The a7C is a bit of a departure from the earlier a7 models, offering a 20% smaller and lighter design than previous bodies. In addition, it also offers the following:

  • Magnesium alloy chassis with weather-sealing
  • 24.2-megapixel sensor that features 15 stops of dynamic range
  • Extended ISO range of 50-204,800
  • 4K video at up to 30 fps with 2.4x oversampling
  • Full HD 1080p video at up to 120 fps
  • 10 fps burst rate
  • 0.39" OLED EVF with 2.36-million-dot resolution
  • 3.0" vari-angle touchscreen LCD
  • AF system with 693 phase-detection points and 425 contrast-detection points
  • Real-time Eye AF and Tracking AF
  • 5-axis in-body image stabilization
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • Single SD card slot with UHS-II support

Of course, the biggest stumbling block for a lot of shooters is likely to be the single card slot, but other than that, it seems like the a7C is a fairly well-balanced camera in a very compact and portable body. Check out the video above for Cheung's full thoughts.

This is actually a pretty balanced review. I have seen many reviews from "influencers" that feel more like sponsored advertisements. I like that he gives some samples of 3rd party lenses at a variety of focal lengths and sizes.

I have no idea who this gentleman is, but he made a new fan / follower out of me. This is one of the best camera reviews I have ever seen...Very honest and he spoke about things that matter.

As far as this New Sony a7C came out and I read the specs, I felt like it was a couple of steps back from my A7lll and not much better than my A6400, so I passed.

This video confirms my choice.
