    Pros:
    Great Battery Life (3hrs recording)
    No record time limit
    Great AF
    Great IQ
    Great Low Light
    Flip-out Screen
    No wheel locks
    Cons:
    Fewer buttons than other FF cameras
    Still overheats in challenging conditions
    10MP APS-C still

    I think the idea of making a small full frame camera body is silly since the lenses are so large. . The results are mostly the same great 4k video (and bad 1080p video) that the A7III produces, with fast AF and excellent low light. In tests performed I found that this camera lasted just over 40 minutes recording in the sun and was unlimited in the shade. Ultimately, what you have here is a cool retro design that is less practical for use. It has a smaller body which can be handy but the effort it puts in isn’t the best. I rather have a bulky camera and see beautiful results….It does weigh very lightly and this is great for when your on the go and shooting. I think this camera is great for Vlogging or taking quick videos.

    Perfect as a b-cam if you’re in full frame already, really compact, but if you’re upgrading from apsc and want to stay light and compact, this is the one.

    Amazing camera for low light video/photo, great ISO, full frame sensor, what else should be in the great camera? The body is compact and lightweight, battery lasts, I can continue on and on, only positive things I can tell about this camera. simply the best!

    I love this camera, photo quality is outstanding, build quality is great. Other reviews have complained about the small viewfinder, complex menus and needing to use your thumb for everything but I have not found these things to be problems at all. Flip screen is great, every camera should have this! Am using with Zeiss FE 2 8/3.5 lens which I can also recommend. I’ve been a photographer for over 60 years and have owned many cameras, this one is a keeper.

    This is not one of my favorite cameras right now. Small, light and easy to use. The most important thing about a camera is its size, and a good camera is the one that is willing to take pictures. In order to perform its function. And the full-frame function is too powerful and the picture quality is great. The important thing to mention is that its focus system should be one of the strongest I have used in cameras today.

    This camera is honestly great. I got it to be a B-cam to my A7Siii and it does an incredible job, it’s also the better hybrid shooter so I actually carry this one more. The only bummer is it only has 2 control dials instead of 3, so you can’t set up a dedicated ISO dial. There is a workaround using a custom function button to switch one of the existing dials but all of the buttons are on the right side along with the dials, so pressing one and turning the dial at the same time is a test of finger gymnastics. Otherwise this camera is amazing and I’m glad I chose it over the A7iii.

    Finally, a full-frame interchangeable lens camera the size of a point-and-shoot, that uses adapters so you can shoot with almost any type of lens mount, and lenses out there. This camera makes digital photography fun and practical. I use the A7C with a Leica M-Mount adapter in order to use my Leica lenses. The camera is set to silent shooting mode, and it becomes the quietest Leica street photography rig there is. It overall outperforms any Leica M body today, except for the prestige of using a Leica M camera.

    I just received this camera yesterday and ran a few heat-related tests. Here is a review based on my short time with it.

    I was excited for the Sony A7C, not because of its (slightly) smaller size but because it is essentially the same as the fantastic A7III, just without the annoying 30-minute record limit. Since almost everything I do with video is a “long form” event, I ran a few stress tests, and here are my first results. All video was shot in 100mbps 4K with a 20mm APS-C lens.
    First test: By a window, in the sun, with the LCD against the body.
    Lasted 41 minutes before overheating.
    Second test: By the same window but with the LCD open. Starting after 12 minutes of cooldown time.
    Lasted 11 minutes before overheating.
    Third Test: After 2hrs of cooldown time. In the shade (approx. 68F), screen open.
    Lasted 2hrs 9mins. Ran until battery died.
    Early Conclusions: The smaller body of the A7C isn’t really much smaller than the A7III– this is not a pocketable camera– so what you’re really getting is a cool throwback look, USB-C charging and fewer available buttons/ dials. Battery life is amazing (that one battery recorded 3hrs!) and the AF is of course perfect. Ultimately I’d recommend the A7III over this camera unless the 30 minute record limit matters to you. The A7III simply has a superior body design for real-world use.

    I love this camera! It’s my first Full Frame Camera! I stream here on Amazon everyday and I use this camera plus the Sigma 35mm F1.2 lens as my main face cam for my streams I have lights behind me so the bokeh is just wow! I’ve used the Sony A7RII but it felt like it didnt have a lot of features this camera has and maybe the Sony A7RII needed to be updated as everything seemed so old with that camera! However I also own the Sony A6600, Sony A6000, and Sony A6100 I use them for my streaming and they’re amazing but with my 35mm lens since it’s a full frame lens on the cropped sensor cameras it was zooming way into my face with the Sony A7C I get the true 35mm! And it’s amazing for streaming it makes face cam look dreamy with the back ground blur and bokeh behind me!

    I’ve only used this camera for taking photos once! I live in South Korea and it’s winter now so it’s too cold to go outside and shoot I took a few photos as you can see, I have Autumn photos of myself but I can’t wait until it warms up again so I can take more photos! As for right now though I use it everyday to stream!

    If you have any questions about the camera and want to see it in use in real time stop by my Amazon stream you can find me by going to amazon.com/shop/atarabyte! Or heading to the Livestreams tab on Amazon! I stream everyday here on Amazon and I can compare all the Sony cameras I have for you in real time and hopefully help you decided which Sony camera would be best for you!

    I hope this review helps! And feel free to message me if you have any questions while I’m not streaming I would love to help! ^^

    Anyways, I hope you have an amazing day and if you do buy this camera I hope you love it as much as I do!

    Switching from an older crop sensor to this beauty was definitely a good move. What a camera!

    The picture quality is very good, I haven’t tried video shooting yet. 但是机身比预想的厚,手柄有点薄,手感不太好。

    Sony definitely delivers with this compact camera. I just want to first start off saying that I’m an amateur photographer. So this is like my first camera ever. I just want to say for anyone who’s looking to buy a full frame mirrorless camera. Who doesn’t know much about how to use a camera. This is seriously the camera for you. Since this is my first camera I’ve been able to take what I think are great shots of my friends and family. I know the price point could be a little steep but I’m telling you it’s worth it.
