Earlier this year Sony announced a new camera in the form of the Sony A9. However if you were more of a fan of Sony’s A7 series of mirrorless cameras, you’ll be pleased to learn that Sony has announced its latest full-frame mirrorless camera in the form of the Sony A7R III, a camera which has been rumored about in the past.
Rumors of the A7R III made their rounds earlier this year and suggested a fall release, and it looks like the rumors have since proven to be true. This is the latest camera from Sony and is the successor to the A7R II which was launched about two years ago. In terms of specs, we’re looking at a whopping 42.4MP full-frame sensor. It will also support continuous shooting speeds of 10 frames per second with full AF/AE tracking, making it twice the speed of its predecessor.
The camera will also feature Sony’s updated BIONZ X processing engine, a gapless on-chip lens design, and anti-reflective sensor coating. There is an ISO range of 100-32,000 and a 15-stop dynamic range at lower ISOs. Sony has also built-in a 5-axis optical image stabilizer into the camera itself, so photographers won’t have to worry about purchasing lens with the feature.
Other features include a 1.44-million dot LCD display, support for 4K video capture, support for dual memory cards, WiFi, USB-C, and improved battery life. Safe to say that all of this won’t come cheap as the camera (body-only) is priced starting at $3,200.
