Sony a7R III Hands-on Preview and Sample Images

10/27/2017 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

The A7R II was an incredibly important camera for Sony and our recipient of the 2015 Camera Of The Year. Things have changed quite a bit in the last couple years, and while the A7R II's image quality is only now being challenged, it was starting to show its age in a few other respects.

The new A7R III is designed as a professional do-everything-well body like the Canon 5D Mark IV and Nikon D850. While we're waiting for production models for a full review, Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake took a look at a prototype at Sony's press event in New York City.

DIYPhotography was at PhotoPlus Expo in New York, and they got to get their hands on the new Sony A7RIII mirrorless camera during the launch event.

At 10fps it offers the fastest full frame mechanical shutter that Sony has ever made. It offers the same 42.4MP resolution of the Sony A9, from which it also borrows many other features. Features like continuous shooting with autofocus tracking with no blackout.

It has 399 phase detection and 425 contrast autofocus points which Sony claim makes it twice as fast in low light situations over its A7RII predecessor.

It's a thicker, chunkier body than the A7RII, thanks to the new battery, also taken from the A9, providing a much longer lifespan between charges.

The ISO range goes from 100-32,000 and is expandable from 50 up to 102,400 with 15 stops of dynamic range.
