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 A7R III initial review: Giving the Nikon D850 a run for its money

 

The Sony A7R III is the epitome of competence, whatever your genre of photography. Only the more demanding sports and wildlife photographers will need

Sharp images with plenty of detail and exceptional dynamic range ; Much improved new battery with 650-single-shot-life ; Lovely electronic viewfinder ; Very respectable high-speed performance ; Customisable 'My Menu' for direct access to most used...

Still takes a while to work your way around the camera ; LCD touchscreen lacks some functionality ; Some buttons/dials are not the easiest to control ; Still uncomfortable to hold with larger lenses

In terms of all-round competence, the Sony A7R III goes head-to-head with the Nikon D850 as the best full-frame camera money can buy. It's battle of mirrorless versus DSLR.

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's A7R III mirrorless can take anything you throw at it

 

Sony's A7R III handles landscapes, action and video with aplomb.

Its only real rival is the superb Nikon D850, and which you choose may depend on whether you prefer mirrorless or DSLR. DP Review called them "genuinely two of the best cameras the world has ever seen."

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,...

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

 

The Sony A7R III sees improvements in pretty much every area: physical design features, image quality, speed and performance, as well as video recording capabilities and battery life. The A7R III remains a top-notch camera for pixel-peepers, capturing...

Fantastic image quality; Improved dynamic range over its predecessor; Very good high ISO performance; Much improved real-world AF performance; Class-leading burst rates, even with RAW; Improved 5-axis in-body image stabilization; Better 4K video...

Expensive; Menus still confusing; UHS-II support only on one card slot; No optical low-pass filter means greater risk of moire; No built-in flash; Buffer clearing still slow despite UHS-II support

Wow, what a camera! Sony's already wowed us with the earlier iterations of the A7R, but for the third go-around, they've managed to out-do themselves. Sony keeps what we love about the A7R series -- high-resolution image quality with excellent dynamic...

Sony Alpha A7R Mark III Review

 

We review the Sony Alpha A7R Mark III, find out how the new 42mp Full-Frame camera performs.

The Sony Alpha A7R Mark III delivers excellent image quality with good colour, and very good noise performance. Levels of detail in images can be improved by using the Pixel shift multi-shot mode, for still subjects, although this does require further...
