2 The world’s first as 35mm full-frame stacked CMOS image sensor with integral memory, as of April 2017, based on Sony research.
3 Approximate effective pixels
4 Compared with the front-illuminated CMOS image sensor in the α7 II.
5 “Hi” continuous shooting mode. At shutter speeds higher than 1/125 sec. In AF-C mode the maximum continuous frame rate will depend on the shooting mode and lens used. A software update may be required for some lenses. Visit Sony’s support web page for lens compatibility information.
6 Electronic shutter mode. Focus will not track the subject at apertures smaller than F11 (F-numbers higher than F11). The focus point will be fixed at the first frame. Display updating will be slower at slow shutter speeds.
7 At shutter speeds higher than 1/125 sec. The number of AF calculations will depend on camera settings and the lens used.
8 Selectable only in S and M modes.
9 Slight distortion may occur in some shooting conditions.
10 Silent shooting is possible when Shutter Type is set to 'Electronic' and Audio is set to 'Off'.
11 Compared with α7R II.
12 in the AF-S mode.
13 The maximum frame rate will depend on the lens used. Visit Sony’s support web page for lens compatibility information.
14 A-mount lenses with SSM or SAM only. Users can choose phase-detection AF or contrast-detection AF in AF System menu. “Phase-detection AF” is not available during movie shooting.
15 Software update scheduled for release in May 2017.
16 ISO ranges are as follows: - Mechanical shutter shooting for stills: ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 50-204800) - Electronic shutter shooting for stills: ISO 100-25600 (expandable to ISO 50-25600) - Shooting movies: ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 100-102400)
17 Class 10 or higher SDHC/SDXC memory card required for XAVC S format movie recording. UHS Speed Class U3 required for 100Mbps recording.
18 In 24p recording. Approx. 1.6 times in 30p recording.
19 When the auto or electronic shutter mode is selected the viewfinder frame rate is fixed at 60 fps during continuous shooting.
20 CIPA standards. Pitch/yaw stabilization only. Planar T* FE 50mm F1.4 ZA lens. Long exposure NR off.
21 Not guaranteed to be 100% dust- and moisture-proof.
22 Dust- and moisture-resistant design does not guarantee complete prevention of dust and moisture from entering the camera body.
