 42.4 MP Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor

Featuring a back-illuminated design, the full-frame 42.4-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor works with the BIONZ X image processor to offer high-resolution stills and video while increasing speed and minimising noise. This sensor structure works with gapless on-chip lens design and an anti-reflection coating, as well as eliminating the optical low-pass filter, to improve light collection and enhance detail. The copper wiring layer dramatically improves data transmission speed for creating 14-bit, high-resolution 42.4-megapixel stills with a native sensitivity range from ISO 100-32000, which can be further expanded to ISO 50-102400. Also, it enables internal UHD 4K video recording with a wide dynamic range using the full width of the full-frame sensor. The BIONZ X processor also works in conjunction with a high-speed front-end LSI to realise faster processing times along with the ability to capture an impressive 15-stop dynamic range at low sensitivity values.

The sensor and processor combination allows for fast continuous shooting at up to 10 fps at full resolution, for up to 76 consecutive frames, and with full-time AF/AE when working with either a mechanical shutter or an electronic shutter. If shooting in live view mode, a continuous shooting rate of up to 8 fps is also possible.
Fast Hybrid AF System with Twice the Focusing Speed
An evolved 4D FOCUS system now employs a combination of 399 phase-detection points, which cover approximately 68% of the frame, along with 425 contrast-detection areas for reliable and quick autofocus and subject tracking performance. This Fast Hybrid AF System now achieves twice the focusing speed and more reliable tracking compared to previous a7R models, as well as improved low-light focusing response down to -3 EV. The use of phase-detection points also enables the use of A-mount lenses via the optional LA-EA3 or LA-EA1 lens mount adapters with full continuous AF/AE tracking compatibility.

The focus system allows for refined accuracy, with features such as Lock-on AF, which maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject, and Expand Flexible Spot, which employs neighbouring focus points to retain focus on moving subjects even if the originally selected point loses focus. Additionally, Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognised subjects' eyes, which is ideal for portraits and is available in both AF-S and AF-C modes.
Autofocus can also be used in conjunction with the Focus Magnifier function for critical focus when homing in on minute subject details. The rear touchscreen can also be used for Touch Focus control, and a Touchpad Focus Control mode lets you use the rear screen intuitively while keeping your eye to the viewfinder.

When you require more personalised control over focus and are working in either horizontal or vertical shooting orientation, the AF area can be switched in orientation to better suit your subject matter. AF tracking sensitivity can also be customised in five steps to match how a subject is moving. Frequently used focus point settings can be memorised by the camera and recalled with a custom button, so you can switch between focus setting faster.
5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilisation
Another great feature of the a7R III is a 5.5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilisation system that compensates for five different types of camera shake often encountered during handheld shooting of stills and video. This allows users to confidently use any lens, even adapted lenses, for critical imaging without encountering blur from camera shake.

For long focal lengths, the system will correct for pitch and yaw adjustments. Macro and high-magnification imagery, on the other hand, will benefit from the inclusion of horizontal and vertical shift compensation. All shooting styles will get usage out of the roll compensation. All 5 axes of stabilization will function at all times, even when used with third-party lenses and adapters or lenses with built-in optical stabilisation.
UHD 4K Video Recording in XAVC S Format
Internal recording of UHD 4K movies is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps and, based on the Super35mm recording area and effective 5K resolution, oversampling renders greater detail and full pixel readout is possible, that is void of pixel binning, for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing. Full-frame 4K recording has also been dramatically improved for improved quality when working at mid to high sensitivities to permit full use of the entire sensor width. Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both resolutions utilise the 100 Mbps XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0 sampling. The high-speed, 120 fps recording also enables 4x and 5x slow-motion movie recording with the frame rate set to either 30p or 24p. In addition, the uncompressed HDMI output enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.

4K video recording also avails the ability to produce 8MP stills during playback by taking a frame grab from a movie and storing it as a separate file.
Additional Video Features
Support for HDR Content:
  • For users that require extensive customisable colour and gamma controls, the a7R III allows users to adjust the gamma, black level, knee, colour level, and more. Also, users can use the same S-Log2 Gamma Curve that is found on high end Sony Cinema cameras that squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video signal then traditional REC709, for increased flexibility during post-production. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support is also available, along with the BT.2020 colour space, for recording within a wide colour gamut and, in addition to S-Log2, S-Log3 is also available for producing an effective 14-stop dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone regions of the image.

Slow & Quick Motion:
  • Increase your level of control during video capture with a variety of frame rates, available in both slow and quick mode. This will allow shooters to capture Full HD video at one of either steps between 1-120 fps. Slow down action or speed up a slow-moving scene. This setting is also NTSC/PAL switchable.

Enhanced Zebra Function:
  • An enhanced Zebra function is installed to aid in monitoring exposure values in high-contrast scenes. Video signal level targets can be set from 0 to 109, and specific ranges can be set to make exposure level adjustments easier.

Time Code and User Bit Settings:
  • A time code can be used to record hours, minutes, seconds, frames on image data for more precise editing while the User Bit function can record date, time, and scene number to aid in editing together footage from multiple cameras for a seamless result.

Proxy Recording:
  • UHD 4K movies and lower-resolution proxy movies can be simultaneously recorded. The smaller proxy files are ideal for quick previewing or pre-editing that can reduce the time required for final 4K editing.
Body Design and Built-In Wi-Fi/Bluetooth
  • An improved Quad-VGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF is featured and has a 3.69m-dot resolution for bright, sharp viewing in high detail. Both Standard and High-quality settings can be used, depending on the shooting situation, in order to optimise the viewing experience. This updated viewfinder design also affords the use of autofocus in the Focus Magnifier mode as well as improved focusing peaking for easier manual focus operation.
  • In addition to the EVF, a 3.0" 1.44m-dot rear LCD is also available, which has a touch panel design for intuitive operation and focusing control. The screen also tilts upward 107° and downward 41° to benefit working from high and low angles.
  • The camera’s body is made of magnesium alloy chassis to assure rigidity, durability, and stability while remaining lightweight and easy-to-transport. The lens mount has also been improved to better support heavy lenses and the grip rigidity has been improved for more comfortable, sturdy hand-holding during operation.
  • A durable shutter unit incorporates a coreless motor and brake system that reduces vibrations to better control shutter shock and extend its rated lifespan to approximately 500,000 actuations.
  • Use the Sony Alpha a7R III in harsh weather conditions, as weather-sealing is installed to resist moisture and dust.
  • Using the same NP-FZ100 battery as the Sony Alpha a9, the a7R III has improved battery life and is now rated for approximately 530 shots per charge with the EVF or 650 shots with the rear LCD.
  • Dual SD memory card slots allow for flexible file saving and transferring and can be configured to partition raw and JPEG files or can be used for overflow recording. One of the card slots is rated to support UHS-II memory cards.
  • The camera has an integrated PC sync terminal for wired flash sync with strobe packs or wireless radio remotes.
  • A USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port has been added, in addition to a micro-USB port, for faster, more reliable tethering support. The USB Type-C connection allows the camera to be charged from the host power source while connected.
  • The a7R III features a 3.5mm microphone input jack for compatibility with external microphones. For more professional applications, the camera is also compatible with the Sony XLR-K2M XLR Adapter for recording professional balanced XLR audio signals with phantom power and adjustable mic/line inputs. For audio monitoring purposes, a 3.5mm headphone jack is available as well as real time audio levels for a visual reference.
  • BBuilt-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enable the a7R III to instantly share imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing online to social networking, via email, and to cloud storage sites. NFC (Near Field Communication) is also supported, which allows for one-touch connection between the camera and compatible mobile devices; no complex set-up is required. Once connected, the linked mobile device can also display a live view image on its screen and remotely control the camera's shutter.
  • Bluetooth connectivity allows for location data acquisition.
Pixel Shift Multi Shooting
This unique compositing mode allows you to achieve even greater resolution than the 42.4MP sensor affords. Working alongside the sensor-shift image stabilisation, this mode shifts the sensor while making four consecutive exposures in order to acquire approximately 169.6MP of information for greater colour accuracy and detail than would be possible with a single exposure. These files can then be merged together during post-production by using the Sony Imaging software suite.
