The new standard

Meet the world's smallest and lightest 35 mm full-frame interchangeable-lens camera. With 36.4 megapixels, the α7R is not just a landmark for compact cameras—it is a landmark for all cameras. And with Sony's latest BIONZ X processor and no optical low-pass filter, the α7R offers unmatched lifelike detail. Get ready to capture reality as never before.

36.4 MP Full Frame sensor

This remarkable new sensor has all the elements for world-class images: high-resolution, top sensitivity, extreme dynamic range, unsurpassed detail and low noise.

Bionz X logo
Superior processing

Expect superlative results with Sony's latest processing engine, BIONZ X™: truer colour rendering, better noise reduction and faster burst mode shooting.

Capture without compromise

Get up close with the world-class Exmor sensor

Our latest Exmor™ sensor features higher speed from parallel signal processing and faster signal conversion. It’s effortless to achieve the detail needed for demanding professional applications.


Natural results in any light

Enhanced detail reproduction plus diffraction-reducing technology create more natural outlines and reduce blur from light points. Enjoy noise reduction plus 16-bit processing and 14-bit RAW output.

Beautiful form. Robust function.

Expert engineering from every angle

In designing the α7R, Sony strove to balance the precise control working photographers need, with the ergonomics they want. The result is carefully crafted knobs and dials, robust functions, extensive customisation potential and recording and connectivity options, all in a durable, lightweight body 25% smaller than leading DSLRs.

Full frame, compact form

At just 465 g with a battery, the α7R is about half the weight of leading DSLRs. And being less bulky as well, there's no more giving up quality for portability.

Internal construction build
Built light; built to last

Crafting the α7R from magnesium, the world's lightest structural metal, means that the camera you carry with you today will also be with you tomorrow.

Where speed meets precision

Innovative Fast Intelligent Autofocus

The faster BIONZ X processor plus new spatial object detection algorithm work together to optimise control of the lens drive. Enhancements include more accurate eye detection and lock-on autofocus.

Eye Autofocus

For perfect portraiture, this function creates sharp focus on faces even when partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, thanks to enhanced eye detection that can prioritise a single pupil.

Lock-on Autofocus

Easily keep moving subjects in focus with this updated technology, which adjusts target frame size based on subject characteristics and makes use of a wide AF area to ensure usage of the optimal focus point.

Autofocus setting options

With the Flexible Spot AF area setting, you can select different-size autofocus area to match your subject, and help ensure the camera focuses on the intended area. Wide and Zone focus area settings are also available.

Smarter viewfinder, better photos

With 100% frame coverage, 1024x768 resolution, high contrast, real-time settings updates and accurate bokeh, the OLED (XGA) Tru-Finder™ is not merely a composition accessory, but an enhancement. Completing the professional-grade features are five display modes and colour temperature and brightness adjustment.


Set your vision in motion

The α7R's combination of 35 mm full-frame sensor, range of lenses, headphone jack and XLR audio adaptor set a new lightweight filmmaking benchmark. And with the BIONZ X processor applying new area-specific noise reduction to video, even low-light documentary footage can look detailed and crisp.

Glass worthy of a 1st-class camera

To enable photographers to explore the limits of the α7R's unrivalled potential, Sony designed a new set of E-mount lenses precisely for the internal geometries of the new full-frame range. In addition, previous-generation α owners can use the full range of E-mount lenses or A-mounts with an adaptor for a professional range of 50+ lenses.
