Announced in October 2020 in the international market, the Sony A7C full-frame mirrorless camera is finally launching in Nepal. Similar to the Sony A7 III and a direct substitute to the Sony A7, the Sony A7C is touted to be the smallest and lightest full-frame camera, at least that’s how the company puts it.
Here we will take a quick look at the camera followed by its price in Nepal and availability.
The Sony A7C comes with a two-tone design that will remind you of camera designs from the 80s. Though you might not fall for the specifications, the camera does have spectacular handling. And Sony has time and time again talked about how the camera is built for utility.
The camera flaunts a 24MP full-frame sensor with burst mode and video recording capped at 10fps and 4K respectively. For low light photography, the ISO ranges from 100 up to 51,200.
As for the body and design, the Sony A7C is made up of magnesium alloy, almost half of which is plated with silver. By the way, this does seem to take away the professional look of it.
A touchscreen is articulated with the body, which on top of a nice hold serves during vertical shooting and videography. This could actually be a useful addition to the ones who love vlogging.
Much like what we have been seeing in the A7 lineup cameras from Sony, the menu could be overwhelming for the majority, given that Sony itself has admitted so as well.
The top is surrounded by a silver band courtesy of which the camera is believed to appear smaller in hands. In fact, it’s smaller than A7 III by 20%. The electronic viewfinder seeing itself get placed at the rear left rather than at the top, similar to what we have seen in the a600 lineup has massively contributed to its size. Moreover, it lacks a dedicated autofocus control joystick, AEL button, and a few others.
The Sony A7C is capable of recording 4K videos both at 30p and 24p and 1080p videos at 120fps. You can use it to record in S-Log or HLG/HDR and play around with fast hybrid autofocus, real-time eye autofocus, and real-time tracking autofocus using artificial intelligence during video recording.
The battery, on a single full charge, can live up to 750 shots whilst is said to last up to 2,00,000 cycles.
