  • A brilliant small full frame camera
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Howie B - August 15, 2021

    A brilliant small full frame camera I had a old A7 which went wrong so I traded in my a6000 ( which I use for family events which require a small camera and still use the 16-50) I use Sony and Minolta full frame lenses with the adaptor. Noticed that "multi frame noise reduction" was missing from the menu but found on this camera it's not necessary as it takes excellent pictures at 6400 ( the max I used to use) and beyond!! Pictures sharper and brighter than the old a7,2. very pleased with the results so far. Bit miffed that the panorama feature is missing but hope it will turn up in future apps/software as it was a brilliant feature.

  • Impressive
    Reviewed by Everyday Photography - October 26, 2020

    It is an impressive full frame camera, considering the size just little bigger than a6600. Newer tracking AF is great with updated colour science is welcoming. The new kit lens is smaller and performs better than other E mount kit lens. Z battery is great for all day shooting as well. I think A7C is great camera who wants full frame camera, size of aps-c sensor equipment. The only thing that I wish they included this camera was new menu system from a7s3. Simpler menu with full touch screen capabilities. A7Cmk2 will probably get it, but can’t wait things to improve forever as it will keep improve and won’t be able to upgrade to a new camera every a year or two. I’m good with a7C for now.

  • Exceptional all rounder
    Reviewed by mikey65 - November 26, 2021

    Testing this camera for the past 3 weeks is surpassing my expectations in every department. Once the menu system is understood & tested, the sheer quality of images produced is incredible. Shutter action reminds me of the A6000 which I loved, and the build does not give me any problems, quite the opposite, it's kept simple as I'm not a photographer who has to assign an action to every button. This enables me slow down, think clearly, adjust to each condition, and breath before taking the shot. So far, there is nothing negative to report. Exceptional camera.
