Sony unveiled the a7S Mark III mirrorless camera in July. The company has now launched the Sony a7S Mark III in India at Rs 3,34,990. The a7S III full-frame mirrorless camera is the successor to the Sony a7S II which was launched in 2015. Since then, camera users have been waiting for a7S Mark III.
Mukesh Srivastava, Head of Digital Imaging at Sony India, says that “Alpha 7S III opens up a whole new world of possibilities for new era content creators.” Since the Sony a7S Mark II is a video-centric camera, users expected the same from the latest a7S Mark III. But the camera seems to be aimed at professional photographers rather than filmmakers.
Sony a7S Mark III can record 4K video up to 120p with 10-bit color depth and 4: 2: 2 chroma subsampling. Instead, the Canon EOS R5 can shoot 8K RAW video up to 30p and 4K video up to 120p. The Canon EOS R5 launched at Rs 3,39,995 in India this year and videographers may be more inclined towards the camera for its video specs.
Speaking of the specs and features of the a7S Mark III, the camera integrates a 12.1 megapixel 35mm full frame CMOS sensor and a BIONZ XR image processing engine. Sony’s latest full-frame mirrorless camera offers expandable ISO range from 40409600, features a 9.44 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder, articulated LCD panel, 5-axis in-body image stabilization, 15+ stops Dynamic Range and two type A CFexpress card slots.
In the a7S Mark III there is a fast hybrid autofocus system with 759-point phase detection AF sensors covering 92% of the image sensor. The camera offers real-time eye AF and real-time tracking.
As for availability, Sony a7S Mark III will be up for grabs from 14 October in India.
