Sony A7

 

Sony's groundbreaking full-frame CSC is very good but it's not without faults

Impressive level of customisation ; Compact size ; Competitive price tag ; Good handling

General burst mode performance poor ; Currently a limited range of lenses ; So-so kit lens

If you’re into shooting video the good news is that the Alpha 7 is well specified in this department. It offers full HD video capture at 1080p resolution, as well as at a frame rate of either 60 or 25p in AVCHD format. It also offers full live manual...

Sony Alpha A7 review

 

When the Sony Alpha A7 first materialised we were really rather excited. The first compact system camera with a full-frame sensor to surface in the market, it answered a question so many had been waiting for. Big sensor, small size, affordable price....

Affordable, small size, full-frame image quality is great with prime lens attached, excellent electronic viewfinder quality, tilt-angle LCD, button customisation, focus peaking for manual focus

Poor battery life, 28-70mm kit lens not great, full FE lens system yet to materialise, AF-C not comparable to DSLR, no pinpoint AF can mean questionable accuracy

The Sony Alpha A7 is a mini marvel with a big point of interest: that full-frame sensor. At £1,299 for the body only, this is as affordable as large-sensor snapping can get, and it could open up a whole new set of interest from more casual...

Hands-on: Sony Alpha A7 review - Pocket-lint

 

The NEX is dead. That's right, the new Sony Alpha A7 compact system camera represents Sony's decision to push the Alpha brand forward. And it does so in

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 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 Alpha ILCE-7 (with 28-70mm Lens) review

 

There's no question that the cheaper model of Sony's full-frame interchangeable-lens duo looks mighty attractive, thanks to its lower price tag. The less-expensive 24-megapixel model (Alpha ILCE-7, aka A7) boasts faster performance and a better...

Sony's Alpha ILCE-7 , aka the A7, delivers excellent photo and video quality in a well-designed camera that's enjoyable to shoot with.

The long startup time and short battery life disappoint.

Sony Alpha ILCE-7 (A7) is a great alternative to similarly priced entry-level full-frame dSLRs, as long as you don't need speedy continuous shooting.

Sony Alpha A7 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Is the Sony Alpha A7 a compact system camera with a full-frame sensor, or a high-end DSLR that looks like a CSC? It's shaped more like a CSC than rival full-frame cameras from Canon or Nikon, and it doesn't have the optical viewfinder or the mirror...
