Sony A7 III Review | Trusted Reviews

 

A simply excellent full-frame camera at the price

Excellent value for money ; Improved battery stamina ; Fast and responsive autofocus system ; Revised button layout for intuitive control

AF point illumination could be improved ; Convoluted menu system ; Thin plastic port covers aren’t weather-sealed ; Handles poorly with large gloves in cold climates

Sony A7 III

 

A simply excellent full-frame camera at the price. Sony A7 III.

Excellent value for money ; Improved battery stamina ; Fast and responsive autofocus system ; Revised button layout for intuitive control

AF point illumination could be improved ; Convoluted menu system ; Thin plastic port covers aren’t weather-sealed ; Handles poorly with large gloves in cold climates

Simply put, the Sony A7 III is the finest example of the most affordable full-frame camera on the market. It’s a sensational camera for the money and compliments the ever-evolving Sony A7-series quite brilliantly.

Sony a7 III review

 

A formidable and affordable entry into full-frame

Incredible value ; Excellent image quality ; Good for video ; Speedy autofocus and tracking

Small physical buttons ; Battery life could be improved

A superstar all-rounder that gives you pretty much everything you need and more - all for a very, very attractive price.

Sony Alpha A7 review

 

An affordable full-frame CSC

Full frame sensor ; Light body ; Small body ; Tilting screen

Limited lens collection ; No touchscreen ; Limited raw functionality

For the price and size, you can't really beat the A7. This is a camera for early adopters, but it's a fantastic step forward and we're already looking forward to the next generation.

Sony Alpha A7 III review

 

No longer the poor relation

693-point AF system ; 10fps burst shooting ; Uncropped 4K video ; 15-stop dynamic range ; 5-axis image stabilization ; Compact and durable body

Limited touchscreen control ; Only one SD slot supports UHS-II cards

When you look at the camera you get for your money, it's hard not to be impressed by the Sony Alpha A7 III. With a wealth of advanced features, the A7 III is likely to appeal to many photographers looking for a well-rounded and advanced full-frame...

Sony Alpha 7 III review: As good a mirrorless model as you can get for under £2,000

 

Regardless of whether you shoot landscapes, wildlift, travel, sports or portraits, the Sony Alpha 7 III has plenty to offer

Compact size ; Good video capabilities ; Well-rounded set of features

No top-plate info LCD ; Limited touchscreen facility ; Electronic finder could be better

Its small size and well-rounded set of features, along with its excellent image quality, makes it a very appealing proposition. It's as good a mirrorless model as you could expect to find under £2,000 and gives rival DSLRs their strongest competition yet.

Sony A7 III review: A peerless full-frame mirrorless camera

 

Sony's 24.2-megapixel A7 III is a near-perfect all-around mirrorless camera. You can fire bursts at 10 fps, capture sharp images with excellent dynamic range day or night, and autofocus accurately on fast-moving subjects or portraits. It also handles...

Stellar low-light/high ISO capability ; Much-improved handling ; Fast 10 fps shooting ; Excellent autofocus ; Sharpest 4K video of any Sony full-frame camera ; Double the battery life of the last model

EVF and viewfinder not quite as good as rivals ; Two SD card slots but only one is high-speed UHS-II ; Not as weather-resistant as the Fujifilm’s X-H1 ; No 10-bit video output like Panasonic’s GH5s

The Sony Alpha A7 III might not have the highest resolution, fastest shooting speed or best video quality. But by borrowing features from the flagship A9 and A7R III, it's uniformly excellent at everything.
