Product information
The Sony a7S Compact System Camera combines a full frame CMOS sensor with a durable, compact body.

Full-frame sensor

A large full-frame CMOS sensor with 12.2 megapixels offers 50 times more surface area than a conventional compact system camera sensor. The larger surface area ensures excellent performance in low-light conditions and finer control over depth of field.

The α7S is powered by a BIONZ X processor engine which offers more natural details, richer tonal graduation, greater detail and lower noise when shooting images and video.

High sensitivity shooting

An impressive extended sensitivity range of ISO 50-409,600 makes the a7S ideal for shooting in both bright light and dimly lit locations, helping you achieve the exact shot you desire.

The incredibly high ISO lets you shoot without flash and with faster shutter speeds to capture fast-moving action even in very low light. This makes the a7S ideal for capturing portraits and landscapes in almost any setting.

4k video capture

Shoot your own movies with the stunning clarity and detail of 4K resolution for professional recording. The Sony Alpha 7S recording formats are optimised to capture high resolution video at a higher frame rate for smooth, natural motion.

With the Alpha 7S you'll be able to simultaneously record video in a range of video formats. Capture high resolution, uncompressed video to an external recorder via the clean HDMI output for editing and playback on big screens, while recording playback-friendly compressed video to the on-board memory card which can be quickly uploaded and shared.

Go further with your movies; Dual Video Record automatically captures image stills while filming, while recording in Full HD lets you play back video at 24p frame rates for stunning slow motion effects.

Intelligent autofocus

Pinpoint the action with the 25-point Fast Intelligent Autofocus system for sharp, blur-free shots, even when photographing fast moving subjects. This fast and precise AF system combines supreme sensitivity and an advanced Spatial Object Detection algorithm to capture subjects with perfect sharpness.

Lock onto your subject and shoot the action with high-speed 5 fps continuous shooting, ideal for sports and capturing movement. The low exposure value lets you track with autofocus, even in low-light conditions.

Shoot without disturbing your subject with silent shooting mode. The electronic shutter makes no noise, ideal for discreetly shooting wildlife, recitals, weddings or theatre.

Tru-Finder viewfinder

Compose the perfect shot with the XGA OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder which displays your camera settings and effects in real-time. This lets you preview the final result before you even press the shutter to compose black and white photos or preview exposure adjustments.

The Tru-Finder features 100% frame coverage, a wide viewing angle, information display modes, peaking function and focus magnification to help you further.

Functional design

The tiltable high resolution LCD 3” screen also offers live view for establishing shots. The tilt angle lets you easily frame over-head or low-angle shots, ideal for getting creative with your compositions.

Compact and lightweight, the a7S still boasts a tough exterior with a strong magnesium alloy, offering a travel-friendly design that's also highly durable.

Go wireless

Wireless technology lets you easily upload, backup or edit your images without the need for cables. NFC One-touch lets you transfer images by simply touching another NFC enabled device, great for instantly uploading and sharing via your smartphone or tablet.

Alternatively you can connect via WiFi to transfer images and video to your PC and devices, or upload directly to social networks. Sony's series of PlayMemories Camera apps gives you extra functionality including turning your smartphone into a remote, experimenting with photographic effects or creating an album of images.

High speed for high specs

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.

With the ability to shoot and record in almost any lighting conditions, the Sony a7S Compact System Camera is perfect for the versatile photographer.
