Is Sony A7 III still a good option for Semi-Professional photography?


Sony A7 III is a powerful camera from Sony, a brand popular in photography. This powerful beast of a camera enables any photographer to achieve the peak of clarity, vibrance, and performance. In this article, we’re going to go through the specifications, features, and the price of the mirrorless model of Sony A7 III in Nepal. 

Sony A7 III Overview:

Sony A7 III has launched quite a few times ago. However, it is still the best option if you are looking for a camera under 3 Lakhs in Nepal. It is one of the best options for street photography, wedding photography as well as normal photo shoots. However, its video capturing ability out shadows its photography capability. I would still recommend it for semi-professional videography as well as photography.

Image Sensor and Processor

Sony A7 III is equipped with an advanced 24.2 MP back-illuminated 35mm full-frame image sensor. It’s capable of continuous shooting at 10fps. While recording at full-HD, the frames go up to 120fps. It’s also capable of recording at 4k at max 30p. 


The Bionz X image processor adds more efficiency to the processing of high-resolution images And the camera boasts a shutter speed range of 1/8000 in 30 seconds and 693 AutoFocus points. Moreover, it can capture clear images throughout the sensitivity range from ISO 100 to 51200. This range can further be expanded to ISO 50 to 204800.

Dimensions and Hardware

Sony A7 III utilizes a 5-axis stabilization for perfect shots. The rear of this camera sports a 3.0” 922k dot touchscreen LCD. This screen has a tilting design for better work from high and low angles. The durability, stability, and rigidity of this camera are ensured by the lightweight magnesium alloy chassis. 


About the battery, it’s an NP-FZ100 battery. It’s a rechargeable Li-ion battery that can power up to 710 shots per charge. The battery life of this camera has improved since its predecessors. 

Other hardware specifications include dual SD memory slots, a USB 3.0 Type-C port, a micro-USB port, built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and so on.
