The A7R III is the latest flagship compact system camera from Sony, featuring the same 42 megapixel sensor as its predecessor, the A7R II, but adding a multitude of new features for both videographers and photographers alike. Chief among these are much faster 10fps burst shooting with full-time auto-focus, thanks to the inclusion of the latest 'Bionz X' processor, the same 3.69M-dot OLED viewfinder and higher-capacity battery as the A9 camera, 15 stops of dynamic range and 14-bit Raw capture, a new focus point selection joystick and AF-On button, 5-axis stabilisation system offering 5.5 stops of compensation, dual SD card slots (one UHS-II, the other UHS-I compatible), flash sync socket for studio use, and new multi-shot resolution mode.
