Comparison of Sony Alpha A7C and A7III (part2)


Compare capabilities

After the body and the sensor, it is the turn of the features and capabilities of these two cameras. Both products use an electronic viewfinder, with an a7C resolution of 2.36 million dots and a7III resolution of 2.359 million dots.

Note that the numbers declared for the shutter speed are for the mechanical shutter. Most cameras have a mechanical shutter, and some use an electronic shutter in addition to this type. The two cameras in question both have electronic shutters that have a completely silent function when shooting. However, this type of shutter is not very suitable for shooting moving subjects (because of the possibility of the Rolling Shutter phenomenon).

Both Sony a7C and a7III cameras have built-in interval gauges. This enables the cameras to record time-lapse videos without the need for external triggers or peripherals.

You can use SD and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards to connect the memory card to the cameras. The Sony a7III has two ports and the Sony a7C has one port for connecting memory cards, both of which support the UHS-II standard. In this way, it is possible to store data at a very high speed on these cameras, which is essential for 4K video recording or high-speed photography. Of course, one of the a7III ports only has the UHS-I standard.


Depending on how you use the camera, the communication features and connections on the cameras will vary.


There is no doubt that both Sony Alfa a7C and Sony Alfa a7III are efficient and powerful products. But which camera is better depends entirely on you and your usage.
