Sony launches world's smallest and lightest full-frame camera

Full-frame mirrorless cameras, with all the undeniable advantages in image quality, are still very expensive and heavy due to bulky lenses, which are often larger than the camera itself.

Sony has just come up with a solution to this problem - the Alpha 7C compact full-frame mirrorless camera, which claims to be the smallest of its competitors.

The Alpha 7C measures just 124 x 71.1 x 59.7mm and weighs 509 grams. This small volume houses a 24.2-megapixel back-illuminated full-frame Exmor sensor. They provide a wide dynamic range of 15 positions. The powerful NP-FZ100 battery lasts for 740 shots. The camera is equipped with a tiltable LCD monitor, which will be appreciated by lovers of selfies and video bloggers.

In video mode, the camera shoots 4K video in ultra-high definition and can process 24 frames per second, and in Full HD format - 120 frames per second. The Alpha 7C comes with the world's smallest and lightest full-frame zoom lens, the FE 28-60mm F4-5.6, and the equally compact HVL-F28RM flash.

Starting at the end of October, the Alpha 7C will be on sale for $ 1, 800. When bundled with the FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 lens, its price will rise to $ 2, 100. The flash will go on sale this winter for $ 250.
