Sony has made the flagship of the full-frame mirrorless camera industry with a 42.4 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor, 5-axis in-body stabilization, and 4k video recorded in-camera. The previous A7R could capture 4k, but not record it. This camera puts in EVERYTHING in one camera. In-camera image stabilization means you don’t have to buy an image-stabilized lens. You can also use adapters to mount Nikon and Canon lenses to the body with no loss of image quality. The ISO range goes up to 102,400, meaning it can shoot in incredibly low light.

Sony seems to have perfected the phase-detection autofocus system, because this one is DSLR-fast and accurate. The back-illuminated sensor allows for shooting in incredibly low light. The ISO range goes up to 102,400 for stills and up to 25,600 for video.

Features like built-in Wi-Fi and NFC mean that you can transfer your incredible images to your phone or tablet for instant uploading to social media. Your Instagram never looked so good!

The 4k is processed through their new processor, and there’s no pixel binning or line-skipping when recording. The s-log gamma allows for a flat image to take advantage of all of the sensor’s dynamic range.

The raw format for stills is compressed and lossy, not lossless, which is surprising for a camera of this caliber and capability. It has one memory card slot, also different from other cameras in this class which normally offer two slots.

At over US$3000 for the body only, it’s aimed solidly at professionals and well-financed advanced amateurs. It’s available at your favorite camera store or at Amazon.com.
