The Sony A7C is a small in size, big in specs full-frame camera with a large ISO range, 24.2MP sensor, and fast autofocus. Coming in at $1,800, it has the sensor, processor, and autofocus system of 2018’s A7 III in a body that’s closer in size to the A6600. Becca Farsace has the full review.

20 REASONS A7C IS IMPORTANT: 1. crammed prior Sony tech into this smaller body 2. smallest FF camera on the market 3. weights only 1 lb. 4. full inputs/ports 5. battery FZ-100 from A7III 6. micro-HDMI port 7. single card slot 8. mic and headphone jack 9. A7III screen but flippy 10. better port doors 11. weather resistant 12. easy to use Fn button 13. 7 steps of AF transition speeds 14. 5 steps of AF responsiveness 15. eye-detection in video 16. one of Sony's best AF cameras 17. same 24mp still images/video as the A7III 18. almost same IBIS as A7III 19. better skin tones 20. good value

That giant lens defeats the purpose I think. Maybe a smaller fixed focal length would have been better? Like the loxia or a summicron.

What's that huge lens you are using? Sure takes away from the discreteness of the cameras design. Though I'm not knocking it and may end up buying one.

I love Becca's reviews and always enjoy the VergeCast when Patel has her come on. I really would prefer that she do the Camera photo/video reviews of the Pixel 5 vs. iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Max. Tired of Dieter's android bias.

I hope they kind of do the opposite and make an APSC camera with the specs of the A7Siii with an A6xxx sized body. I use the Sony FS7 and FS5 for video and don't need, nor do I want to pay $3,500 for, full frame for a b-cam and gimbal cam.

The Sony 24-70mm f/2 on a7C looks so huge but it is isn't a very big zoom lens. Also the a9 and a9 II cameras were omitted at the start of the a7 series lineup. The a9 and a9 II have the a7 series body but with just a different name. The a7C is the 13th full frame mirrorless camera by Sony. I hope it will be a lucky one.

Extremely overpriced camera. Single memory card slot, 1/4000s max shutter, forced EFC shutter, tiny unusable EVF, low resolution LCD, no front command dial, no custom buttons. What were they thinking?

The Sony full frame and APSC lineup is very well defined and easy to understand. I can't say the same for the others, especially Panasonic's throwup of letters and numbers with multiple names and re-releases for each model in various regions, or Canon's complete randomness.

camera is 1/5 of the lens size. Pretty useless having the camera small in the first place, it seems...unless you only go about with a pancake lens...

Old menu systems, overpriced and no 10-bit video make the A7C a terrible value proposition for many people.
