Gone are the days where full-frame photography meant lugging around massive DSLRs and hefty lenses. Thanks to Sony‘s expertise in the field of photography, the company has now created the market’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera: the new Alpha 7C.

Sized similarly to its own more compact APS-C and mirrorless model ranges, the Alpha 7C nonetheless carries a 24.2 megapixel 35mm full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, giving you all the image definition and low light performance you’ll need. The camera is powered by a BIONZ X image processing engine, with 15 stops of dynamic range and support for ISO sensitivities up to 51,200, expandable up to 204,800. Other performance features include artificial intelligence-driven auto-focus with real-time tracking, burst modes of up to 10 frames per second, and 4K video shooting. Its external hardware comes in the form of a tilting three-inch LCD touchscreen, a 2.35 megadot XGA OLD Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, built-in Wi-FI connectivity, and USB-C support.

For the avid photographers out there, Sony’s new full-frame Alpha 7C is now available for pre-order over on Adorama, going for $1,800 for the body.

Elsewhere in tech, Apple has unveiled its new Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE.
