The Alpha 7C II is equipped with a 33-megapixel full-frame image sensor and features the latest still image and video functions and performance in a compact and lightweight design (approximately 124mm wide x 71.1mm high x 63.4mm deep and weighs approximately 514 g). It is the second-generation version of the Alpha 7C series, known for its combination of performance and features in a compact size.

On the other hand, the Alpha 7CR boasts the high-resolution and rich gradation performance of a 61-megapixel full-size image sensor – the same sensor found in the Alpha 7R V – in a compact and lightweight body (similar size and weight as the Alpha 7C II, approximately 515 g). In addition to daily snapshots, it easily realises high-quality image capture in a wide variety of settings, such as portrait, wildlife, and landscape photography, realising the combination of extreme high-resolution image capture with mobility and lightweight.

Both new cameras are equipped with the same AI-processing unit and BIONZ XR processors found in Sony’s latest Alpha 7R V and Alpha 6700. Real-time Recognition AF (autofocusing) recognises a wide variety of subjects with high accuracy, and 5-axis in-body image stabilisation provides a seven-step shooting advantage when capturing stills. In addition, both models support high-quality 4:2:2 10-bit video recording up to 4K60p as well as Sony’s S-Cinetone colour science.
