Sony has launched a new mirrorless camera, the Sony A7R III at an event in China.

The Sony A7R III is based around the same 42.2MP full-frame image sensor as in the earlier A7R II. What’s different is that the A7R III is paired with a reworked imaging pipeline that should allow for a 15-stop dynamic range at lower sensitivities. Sony claims that is the “highest picture quality of any camera we’ve ever made.” Despite its high megapixel count, the A7R III is fast with a continuous shooting speed of up to 10fps with full AF/AE tracking which this is twice as fast as the 5fps on the A7R II. The new A7R III also features new technologies like a gapless on-chip lens design and anti-reflective sensor coating to achieve better low-light performance and wider dynamic range. The A7R III features an ISO range of 100-32000 which is expandable to 50-102,400. The camera also has a 5-axis optical image stabiliser that provides 5.5 stops of compensation.

The new A7R III has a new feature called the Pixel Shift Multi Shooting Mode. When activated, the camera captures 4 separate photos shifted by 1 pixel each to capture 169.2 megapixels of data. These are then composited in Sony’s new Imaging Edge software to create a single photo to achieve a higher resolution and colour accuracy. On the back of the camera is an 3-inch OLED viewfinder with 3.186 million dots.

The A7R III captures 4K footage using the full width of the sensor, and packs the Super 35 oversampling mode. Like the Sony A9, you can also shoot at 120fps at full HD, but the A7R III also adds S-Log 3 and support for the hybrid log gamma HDR standard.

The Sony A7R III will be availble in November at a starting price of US $3200.
