The new Sony A7 is the most impressive camera on the market at the moment. Many top quality point and shoot cameras cost hundreds of pounds; the A7 costs around a thousand. This gives it a big price cut compared to its rivals – which leaves consumers with the question, what’s great about it? It certainly has a lot of pizzazz – and a few features that really stand out. Let’s have a look.
Well, firstly in some regards the a7 iii still excels: Sony A7R Series = HIGH RESOLVEOF With 61 million successful pixels on its full frame sensor, the a7 iii still manages to outclass many other point and shoot cameras. It allows the user to take great pictures with a lot of flexibility, and its picture taking abilities are second to none for this price. However, if you’re looking for the most features from your a7 it then it might be best to buy the a series, as the a7 it has a few extra tricks up its sleeve. It also comes with a very good automatic lens mount – so users can enjoy even more flexible photography with their a7 iii.
Sony’s a7 it is a great all-rounder. It’s great for all-round use, even when it’s not being used to take pictures of the family dog! The all-rounder body means it’s easy to use and take into the outdoors without getting a scratch. Despite its compact size, the body of the camera is impressively robust, and even the smaller body-stiffness of the Sony a7 it is no problem at all when in actual use.
With an extremely large and bright image sensor, the Sony A7 camera gets an excellent image quality for a point and shoot camera. Even in lower light settings the a7 it manages to remain extremely sharp. In landscape photography the image quality is excellent, with plenty of detail in the foreground and large areas of the photo taking up the entire image. The fact that the lens has such a large pixel also helps with landscape photography. Large amounts of detail can be taken advantage of in the photograph with just a few clicks of the shutter button.
The Sony A7r it is powered by a high performance Exmor P and X Processor. The performance of the lens is excellent for a point and shoot camera. The resolution is also quite high at 12mp, which is great for anyone wanting high resolution in a camera. The memory card is expandable but not as much as the a7ii. The battery life is not great, but considering how small the camera is it should still last you quite a long time.
Overall, the performance of the Sony A7r it is very good for a point and shoot camera, although it would be interesting to see if the improvements were made for the Sony A7ii Plus. Both camera’s autofocus really well, but the exmor P processing seem to be a little better. The resolution of the images is not very high, but again this could be because of the limitations of the current technology, however it’s still good news if that’s your thing.
