Sony's New A7R III Is a Powerful Mirrorless Camera With High Resolution

Built with advanced features that rival the A9.

By //Tech

Sony’s recent A9 camera is a beautiful piece of technology and it’s blindingly fast with a 60fps AF/AE Calculation. Although the camera is a few months old, Sony is upping its mirrorless ante with the all-new A7R III built with advanced specifications that may blow the A9 out of the water as well as its two-year-old predecessor, the A7R II.

The new full-frame mirrorless device is equipped with a 42.4MP sensor, 10FPS continuous shooting, a hybrid AF system that employs 399 phase-detection points spanning approximately 68% of the frame, and 4K video recording (3840 x 2160 pixels). The main difference between the A7R III’s sensor and the A9’s is the resolution. The A7R III’s EXMOR R sensor is powered by a BIONZ processor, enabling users to capture images at twice the resolution of the A9, but it still can’t hold a candle to the A9’s speed. Furthermore, the A7R III’s high-resolution (3.69-million-dot EVF) allows for a brighter and more detailed display coupled with an upgraded, touch-sensitive LCD boasting 1.44-million dots and Whitemagic technology.

You can describe the body and design of the A7R III as a hybrid of the A9 and A7RII. It mimics the A7R II’s top-plate control dashboard, but the back portion is more or less the same as the A9. Additionally, there is now an AF-on button, AF-area selection joystick, a movie button carefully placed near the viewfinder for easier use and a rear dial that is larger than the previous variant. Sony also added two USB ports: a micro USB port for accessories, and a USB-C port for batteries.

Last but certainly not least, the camera touts pixel-shifting shooting mode which means that photographers can snap four slightly offset images that are later composited in post-production. The feature allows for sharp and colorful images that are all comprised of 42 megapixels in resolution.

Take a look at the Sony A7R III above and learn more about the camera’s high-resolution 4K video recording by watching the video below. The A7R III will cost you approximately $3,199 USD when it launches this November.
