Sony continues to up its game in the camera industry. The recently announced Sony A7 III punches in an able-bodied mirrorless shooter for a more competitive price.

The announcement follows last year’s 42.4-megapixel full-frame A7R III. The new A7 III slashes the former’s price but still delivers much to love for the mirrorless photographer.

Like the A7R III, the A7 III boasts of full-frame shooting capabilities. It packs in a new 24.2-megapixel sensor with 5-axis image stabilization. It can also shoot sharper videos in 4K UHD resolution, or smoother ones at 120fps on 1080p resolution.

All this is complemented by an upgraded BIONZ-X processor. As a result, the camera is 1.8 times faster in shooting and processing compared to its predecessor. It can shoot photos at 10fps (with a buffer of up to 177 JPEGs) in both RAW and JPEG formats. The camera’s 693 AF points covers almost the entire frame. The processor also allows for better battery efficiency, allowing up to 710 shots before a recharge.

As with several of Sony’s other cameras, the A7 III is a competent low-light shooter. The new sensor blazes through the darkness with an incredibly max ISO of 204800.

Besides shooting, the A7 III also flaunts other features. It carries a 2.36-million dot quad-VGA OLED touchscreen viewfinder, dual SD card slots, USB-C, and wireless connectivity for Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth. The A7 III is also compatible with all E-mount accessories.

The new Sony A7 III starts shipping in April. For only its body, the camera retails for US$ 2,000. With a 28-70mm kit lens, the camera will retail for US$ 2,200.
