Ever dream of being a YouTuber? All you need is a good quality camera. While most newer smartphones can do just the job to record your videos, sometimes it’s easier to get a proper camera so that no one disturbs your recording when they call you.
Choosing which camera is the best for vlogging is always tough but maybe this new baby could be an option. Sony just recently unveiled the Sony A7C, which it claims to be the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera system.
The new camera is just 4.9 x 2.8 x 2.2 inches in dimensions and weighs at only 509g. The A7C features a corner-mounted EVF with 2.36M dot resolution with 0.59x magnification, and also a fully articulating LCD screen on its back. Moving the EVF away from the centre of the camera also helped to reduce the bulk of its design, resulting in a more compact shape factor.
The A7C packs a 24MP BSI CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100 to 51,200, 5-axis in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) and Sony’s own hybrid phase-detection autofocus with 693 points.
Since it is for vlogging use, the camera is capable of shooting 4K video at up to 30fps with full pixel readout at full-frame, and 1080p at up to 120fps as well. How about photos? well it can shoot 10fps continuously with autofocus in 14-bit RAW and JPEG formats.
The Sony A7C features a single card slot that supports UHS-II format, an HDMI micro port, a USB-C port for data transfer and battery charging, as well as two 3.5mm ports for headphone and microphone inputs.
If you don’t know what any of the above means then don’t worry, you can watch this video and see if this camera is perfect to level up your vlogging experience.
Sony Malaysia confirmed that the new Sony A7C camera will arrive in Malaysia this November, and is priced at RM8,399 for body-only or RM9,899 when bundled with the new FE 28-60mm lens. Pre-orders for the camera started yesterday, September 15 and will end on October 15.
