Even in such a small body, the Alpha 7C features 5-axis image stabilization and can be held in the hand for clear, stable images in low light, for example. In addition, the Alpha 7C is powered by a large-capacity NP-FZ100 battery that can take approximately 740 photos when using the LCD view and 680 photos when using the EVF view. The new Alpha 7C is available in two body colors, silver, and black.
The Alpha 7C also features real-time eye (human-eye) focus for shooting video, which supports automatic eye tracking with high precision and stability, allowing users to focus on shooting content.
