Get the shot you want, even in low light with the Sony α7S interchangeable lens camera. The Alpha 7S packs an incredibly sensitive full-frame sensor, allowing for the ISO to be set at up to 409600 while capturing very little noise, so that a lack of light will no longer limit your vision.
The Alpha 7S uses an ultra sensitive 12.2 megapixel 35mm Exmor CMOS sensor to deliver ultra-wide dynamic range for brilliant stills and movies. Combined with the BIONZ X image processing engine, the α7S will faithfully reproduce textures and details in real time, ensuring that your shots are clear and full of detail.
With a phenomenal ISO range from 50 to 409600, the α7S will help you capture the shot you desire, even in deep darkness. The Alpha 7S is perfect for capturing night shots with low noise.
The Alpha 7S packs cutting edge technology into a small, lightweight body. Made from magnesium alloy, the body on the Alpha 7S provides comprehensive dust and moisture resistance combined with unparalleled mobility so you can comfortably take it wherever you go.
High quality video recording
Record your movies in high definition and high bitrate with the XAVC S format. Built on the XAVC format used by professional movie makers and broadcasters, XAVC S captures excellent quality while employing intelligent data compression to ensure consumer-friendly editing and file sizes. The Exmor CMOS sensor will help you capture video, even in low light thanks to a full pixel readout. Support for 120fps at HD resolution can help you create stunning slow motion movies when played back at 24p.
Thanks to its supreme sensitivity and an advanced Spatial Detection algorithm, the Alpha 7S can deliver ultra-high autofocus speed and precision, even in low light.
Wi-Fi & NFC
Instantly transfer your photos and movies to your Android smartphone or tablet, with NFC connectivity making it as easy as tapping the two devices together. Download additional functionality with PlayMemories Camera apps like Smart Remote Control (control the shutter release on your smartphone) or Direct Upload to share your work on social networks.
Frame your shots like a pro, thanks to the high contrast, high resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder and even monitor peaking a bokeh in the viewfinder.
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
