Sony's slimmest and lightest full-frame mirrorless camera, the Sony A7C, has the guts of a Sony A7 III but in a body that more closely resembles its A6XXX series APS-C mirrorless cameras. The Sony A7 III was already a pretty popular full-frame camera and one that I liked very much too when I reviewed it.

  • A full frame beauty hidden in a compact body
    Gera (Jan 6, 2021) on Amazon
    There is a lot to be said about this camera. It has the full-frame goodness incorporated in the form factor of an Aps-c body. That means you are more likely to carry it with you everywhere, especially when traveling. Being a full-frame you have the ability to purchase some really nice Sony lenses, of course, some of them are really big and would make this not as compact. The viewfinder is just not pleasant to use. A compromise when trying to trim everything down. I love the articulating touch screen! If you want to make a 4K video on Youtube this is perfect. If you want to vlog on the go then you might prefer a wider lens but that would make the setup a bit heavier and clunkier. It can be done though. The menu screen does not have touch functionality. When closed you can have the screen facing inwards so as to keep it safe. The menu system is the older version, who knows if they will update to Sony?s newest version. It is missing a couple of dials and buttons: No joystick and most of the buttons will have to be used with your right thumb. It only has 1 SD card slot, a bit of a bummer if you wanted to use it as your main wedding or gig camera. Great autofocus and they were able to pack-in IBIS into the body, impressive for the size. This is really where I was floored, the camera helps you not miss that shot or keeps it from being blurry. Love that! Battery life is awesome. You get weather sealing, just make sure the lenses you purchase have that feature as well. I easily transferred files over to my smartphone via wifi/Bluetooth that the camera offers. Overall, this is a very nice camera for traveling or if you really want and need the articulating touch screen. You are going to have to spend a premium for that though. You are paying for the image quality of a full-frame sensor and the compact size versatility that the other Sony models don't offer. After seeing the images this camera produces, even the JPEGS, you will probably fall in love with it as I did. I added some straight out of camera jpegs. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • Best Camera for $2,000
    Mosheyadelman (Dec 30, 2020) on Amazon
    The Sony Alpha 7c is by far the best camera I have ever owned.I love the retro style and duo color tone of Silver and black on the version I purchased. When it comes to photos, this camera has very precise colors and very good focus.I used to use a different brand and let me tell you, one of my pet peeves is when I hold down the shutter button and take multiple photos in quick succession, the other brand camera says please wait, and I cannot use the camera until it processes those images. Not this Sony! it has its own processing in the background, and just makes a queue, so you can continue to snap photos, and when you take a break, it just quickly copies them to the card! Absolutely amazing!I have not had the chance to test the microphone quality in a good setting, but from the little that I have tested it, this blows any other built-in camera on any other camera out of the water. Easily the best built-in camera I have ever used.The Sony A7c comes with a full-frame sensor which captures more light so you get this amazing depth of field, dynamic range and the detail is absolutely stunning.When you look at this camera compared to other professional cameras you are going to think it is less superior because it is half the size, BUT! do not despair! Sony has now moved into creating magic apparently, as this camera is by far better than its competition in half the size! This camera is so much lighter and smaller than most other cameras of the same quality, which makes this the perfect camera for all occasions!Videos are also very crisp with excellent lighting, and it shoots in 4k! I highly recommend this camera for anyone seeking a blog, YouTube channel, or just love photography!Video tutorial coming soon!

  • Small and mighty! Amazing full frame camera
    Amazon Customer (Dec 22, 2020) on Amazon
    Wow I feel like I am emerging from the Stone Age! This camera has amazing features and makes taking amazing shots and videos a breeze. I had heard a lot about the Sony mirrorless cameras but hadn?t had a chance to try one out but with the release of the A7c it was the perfect balance of price and features that I had to go for it! The real time tracking autofocus system is truly amazing and very fast allowing for fast capture of clear shots. I also really liked the 4K video recording and the inputs for a mic and headphones allowing clean audio recording with the video. This would be a great camera for anybody looking to take amazing photos and videos on the go. The size is great for travel it is almost pocketable and the kit lens has a great range. The collapsable zoom lens helped keep the form factor small and balanced with the size of the camera. I loved the silver and black color scheme for its retro feel but with modern technology. Coming from a APS-C camera, the amount of details and the dynamic range that is captured by this full frame is amazing. I didn?t think it would be that big of a difference but I can really tell the difference it image quality between this full frame and my old APS-C. The bokeh is mind blowing! No portrait mode on a phone can compete, the software makes it very easy to get studio quality results and always gets the subject in focus with the right amount of background blur. I would highly recommend it for any beginner photographer or somebody who travels a lot and wants something that can be tossed into and bag or large jacket pocket. You really can?t beat the size of this camera especially with a full frame lens, it?s almost the same size as the old digital point and shoots we all used to have.

  • Compact full-frame and full-featured travel camera with great build quality and choice of lenses
    A. Paul (Nov 25, 2020) on Amazon
    Sony's Alpha series is highly regarded by both professionals and enthusiasts. The 7C is a wonderful new entry in its product portfolio targeted towards vloggers, travel enthusiasts, influencers, or even professionals who would like to have an additional camera handy.It ticks many important boxes - light and well made, 4k video, compact mirrorless, full-frame, enough controls for the serious photographer, and compatibility with Sony's wide selection of E-mount lenses. External microphone and lights can be easily added, and a good quality company tripod should be fine.The form-factor on this is ideal for travel. I am still trying this out, but so far have been very happy with stills and video. This will definitely be my go-to outdoors and travel camera (when travel resumes). Highly recommended.Update 1 - I took the camera on a couple of local trips and love how easy it is to carry around. This is definitely much easier to carry around, both in dimensions and weight, compared to other DSLRs. I tend to shoot more because of this. You still have the full-frame capabilities capturing excellent photos and videos. The a7c is perfectly suited for travel, hiking, and vlogging with great autofocus and continuous eye tracking. The kit lens (28-60) does an adequate job with portrait stills and bokeh shots when traveling light, but thanks to Sony's extensive range of high-quality E-mount lenses I have also paired it with some Sony G Master series lenses for even better photo results. The audio capture is good and it's easy to add an external travel mic for pro results. Pasr19

  • This is not one of my favorite cameras right now.
    Hao (Jan 6, 2021) on Amazon
    This is not one of my favorite cameras right now. Small, light and easy to use. The most important thing about a camera is its size, and a good camera is the one that is willing to take pictures. In order to perform its function. And the full-frame function is too powerful and the picture quality is great. The important thing to mention is that its focus system should be one of the strongest I have used in cameras today.

  • Great Portable Camera. Lots in a (relatively) small package
    Sunita Mahtani (Jan 14, 2021) on Amazon
    This camera is spectacular. I am a casual photography enthusiast. I thought I'd use this camera to shoot more food / cocktail photography but instead I've been using it for portrait and animal photography over the holidays. I've used the video to film fireworks and family time to put the camera to the test in different situations and scenarios. I've tested the camera in motion and in night with mostly stills and briefly used the video.Below is my comprehensive review of the Sony A7CAesthetic and Body: Absolutely beautiful casing with a retro feel. The silver and black feels like I'm shooting on a gorgeous vintage leica with a fuller body, The weight is actually incredible. So light to carry around. I've shot on a DSLR traditionally and am surprised at how much this camera delivers in the size of its body. It's got a great ergonomic grip that allows for stable shooting. Huge Kudos to Sony on the design of the a7c. Some have said that the viewfinder seems small, I disagree. It is perfectly ergonomic and fits the architecture of the camera. The built in level helps retain crispness on the shots.Still photography: Truly remarkable and sharp pictures. I have not used this semi professionally yet and have used it mostly for family gathering over the holidays for enthusiast shooting. The ISO 50 to ISO 204800 give the camera pretty much nightvision. It's insane. The features on the 28-60 lens are sharp and crisp. It also is quite easy to create a lot of bokeh. It does take some getting used to to "flatten" your images.Video: shoots at 120FPS makes for Seamless and incredibly smooth filming. Once again that ISO even in incredibly dimly light areas produced flawlessly smooth filming. It's absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to start using this camera more seriously.All in all, this camera is amazing. It has everything I've looked for as a casual enthusiast photographer. I am learning how to use this camera properly, and am so impressed with what I've been able to produce so far with it.

  • Best Camera for Your Lifestyle
    Chkforu (Jan 6, 2021) on Amazon
    Best Camera for Your LifestyleThis is the best camera for recording your lifestyle and express yourself. Sony Alpha 7C is the most compact full-frame mirrorless available in the market. Its lightness and well-balanced body help you carry it wherever you go without any second thought. Its uncompromising capability and quality let you obtain the highest quality images and videos anywhere and at any moment. I would recommend this camera for people who want to upgrade from crop body, serious about recording your lifestyle, content creator, professionals who need a second body.Swivel screenThis is the second Sony full-frame camera with an articulating screen. Another one that has this screen costs much more. It changes the game in the sense that you have much more freedom in your shot angle and also monitor yourself for the self-shot without any other accessories.Sony Auto Focus TrackingAutofocus and Video focus tracking are out of this world. You will not sacrifice shots that are out of the focus. Especially, Auto tracking enabled in the video makes this camera best for the Vlog. The enhancement on the screen brightness is an upgrade from a7m3. Some suggest viewfinder is a downgrade, but I had no problem with it. I also like how detail you can adjust focus transition speed to make it more cinematic. I wanted it to have an updated Sony menu system, but it has the previous generation touch menu system with a menu button in a weird location.Video reliabilityThis is also a great camera for video recording with unlimited video recording minutes. You can make a professional-quality video for any type of conference or lecture. I see this can be even a great sub-camera for the professionals to have that reliable second and third view of the recording.New Compact bundle LensSony created a new FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 compact lens to go in hand with Sony A7C. I took several shots with this lens and it was a pleasant surprise. I usually do not have any high hopes for the bundled lens and especially the small lens. However, this produces great quality images. The compact lens size and lightness draw you to use it more often than you think.
