If you are a fan of the Alpha series cameras and compact light bodies then there is some exciting news that come from Sony. They just announced that the A7C model, which is expected to be the smallest and lightest Alpha range camera built yet. 

In terms of look the A7C looks similar to their APS-C line up of cameras and it will be interesting to see how they’ve managed to fit a full-frame sensor into that tiny body. The camera measures 124.0mm x 71.1mm x 59.7mm and weighs 509g. 

It features a 24.2-megapixel full-frame sensor with in-body image stabilization and a standard ISO range of up to 51,200. The camera is capable of shooting up to 10fps with autoexposure can also shoot 4k videos at 30 fps and 1080p/120fps video. It will be interesting to see if there will be any limitations on the recording time or if the camera heats up while shooting 4k. The body has USB-C, Wi-Fi, and a vari-angle 3-inch 921,000-dot LCD. The Alpha 7C also supports 16-bit processing and 14-bit RAW output for natural gradations.

Apart from the camera Sony has also developed a new kit lens to pair with the A7C. It’s a 28-60mm f4-5.6 zoom that’s just 45mm long when retracted. The price of the body only is at $1,799 and the price for India might be announced soon. The camera is almost $200 lesser than the A7 III.
