Sony Alpha A7R III review


Sony's megapixel monster gets a performance boost

10fps at 42.2MP ; Advanced 5-axis IS system ; Large and bright EVF ; Fast AF performance ; Improved handling

Battery life could still be better ; Limited touchscreen control ; Only one SD slot supports UHS-II cards

The Sony Alpha A7R III is not only the most well-rounded mirrorless camera you can buy today, but one of the best cameras out there right now.

Sony Alpha 77 Mark II review


Sony's enthusiast-level SLT gets a speed boost as well as better image quality

24Mp sensor captures lots of detail ; Excellent AF system ; Good noise control

Cumbersome articulating mechanism on the screen ; 12fps option on the mode dial rather than within the continuous shooting options ; No touch-screen

Image quality from this camera is excellent, even at high sensitivity settings. Also, the autofocus system is fast and accurate; it can even cope with very low light levels, making this a great camera for enthusiasts who want to shoot a range of...

Sony A7R III


The best mirrorless camera that money can buy. Sony A7R III.

Phenomenal image quality in almost any situation ; Extremely fast and responsive ; Compact, lightweight design with well-placed controls ; Superb electronic viewfinder ; In-body image stabilisation gives sharper images with any lens

AF area is invisible when moved using the joystick ; Rear screen only tilts up or down ; Handgrip too close to the lens for shooting with gloves

Quite simply, the Sony A7R III is a ludicrously brilliant camera, and one of the very best on the market.

Sony a7R III


The a7R III takes Sony's proven high-resolution full-frame mirrorless camera and improves upon its speed, autofocus system, and video capabilities.

Proven 42MP full-frame sensor. Improved processor and autofocus system. 10fps image capture with tracking. Silent shooting option. Tilting touch LCD. Dual card slots. Larger battery than a7R II.

Only one card slot supports UHS-II speeds. No built-in flash. No in-camera time-lapse support. Can't start video until image buffer is cleared. Dense menu system.

The a7R III doesn't offer increased resolution when compared with its predecessor, but that doesn't mean it's not a serious upgrade. It takes a sensor that's already proven to deliver excellent performance and ekes a bit more dyanmic range out of it,...

Sony A7R Mark III hands-on review


With big improvements to battery life and performance, Sony's A7R Mark III is a worthy successor.

42.4MP full-frame sensor ; 10 FPS burst shooting ; Vastly improved battery life ; Improved image stabilization ; Improved AF performance

No “anti-distortion shutter” rating ; Burst mode limits compressed RAWs to 12-bit

Sony A7R III Review


When the A9 was announced earlier this year, many of us were counting the days until Sony announced an updated high-megapixel camera that integrated the outstanding autofocus features of that camera. Well we didn’t have to wait long, and Sony really...

The Sony A7R-series have displayed excellent print quality performance in the past, and the new A7R III is no exception, even making PQ improvements here over the Mark II. Despite keeping the same 42-megapixel full-frame sensor as the A7R II, the new...
