The Sony A7S III is packed with a 12MP BSI CMOS sensor, complete with a brand new BIONZ XR processor, and a native ISO range from 80 to 102,400. Focusing on video content, the camera is able to capture 4K video at 120p and 60p at 10-bit 4:2:2. And that’s without pixel binning or line skipping.

The camera also has fast readout speeds, allowing it to also record 16-bit ProRes RAW video over HDMI connectivity at up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Unfortunately, there isn’t any 8K video recording feature onboard the Sony A7S III.

Stabilisation wise, the Sony A7S III does have in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) that delivers gimbal-like stabilisation for both photo and video recording. This camera is also the first in the A series lineup that has phase-detect autofocus (PDAF), which is capable of 759 phase-detection and 425 contrast-detection points. This also covers 92 percent of the image sensor.

Sony has also mentioned that the Sony A7S III Full-Frame has a maximum continuous shooting speed of 10fps for over 1,000 consecutive uncompressed RAW images, complete with full AF/AE tracking.

When it comes to the body, the Sony A7S III is a little thicker, because of the new internal-heat dissipating mechanism. Because of this, the camera can actually record 4K/60p videos for up to an hour without overheating.

Rounding up the specs of the Sony A7S III, there is also a 9.44M-dot OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF) onboard, dual hybrid card slots that support UHS-II SD cards or CFExpress Type A, and a rechargeable 2280mAh battery. Connectivity wise, it has a micro as well as USB Type-C support with Power Delivery capability, a HDMI port, a headphone jack, and built-in WiFi 5 (ac).
