Sony mungkin sedang membuat sejarah. Diluncurkannya kamera yang sudah lama dirumorkan ini menunjukkan keseriusan Sony yang tidak main-main dipasar kamera profesional. Dengan merilis kamera Sony Alpha A7, kamera mirrorless Full Frame pertama (red: Leica tidak dihitung sebagai mirrorless), dengan ukuran body yang sangat kompak dan teknologi NEX yang sudah teruji, Sony sepertinya mengarahkan targetnya ke Nikon dan Canon yang merajai pasar kamera DSLR Full Frame. Sony ingin menarik hati para profesional dan mengatakan “ini loh, kamera full frame gak harus besar dan berat”. Kualitas, handling dan speed memang belum teruji, jadi kita masih harus menunggu apakah langkah Sony ini tepat atau tidak.

Desain A7 dan A7R juga berbeda dari yang pernah Sony buat, mengusung kombinasi tonjolan EVF retro (berbentuk prisma) seperti  Olympus OMD dan bentuk body RX1 yang modern. Yang pasti kelemahan pertama kamera ini adalah dukungan lensa Full Frame pada saat peluncuran yang belum sebanyak kompetitor, meski bisa menggunakan lensa E-mount tetapi tidak maksimal. Tetapi Sony sudah menyiapkan roadmap lima buah lensa khusus untuk sistem ini yaitu : Lensa kit FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS image-stabilised zoom, lensa FE 55mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*, lensa FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*, lens FE 24-70mm F4 Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar T*. lensa ‘G’ class telezoom FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS.

Preview, Hands On Da n First Impression Kamera Sony Alpha A7 Dan A7R

  • First Impression oleh DPReview. “Untungnya, Sony tidak mengkompromikan ergonomi, membuat kamera mudah untuk disimpan dan beroperasi. Fitur sangat lengkap, baik untuk fotografer masih dan penggemar video. Kamera sangat responsif dan menyenangkan untuk digunakan, tetapi tidak dibuat untuk mode silent, keduanya memiliki rana (shutter) agak bising.”
  • Hands on oleh Engadget. “Kualitas Body sangat tinggi, dengan konstruksi magnesium alloy yang memungkinkan tahan debu dan air. Built-in hand-grip membuat kamera nyaman untuk dipegang bahkan dengan ukuran penuh lensa A-mount terpasang. XGA OLED viewfinder elektronik super tajam, akurat mereproduksi depth-of-field dan fungsi zoom manual-fokus”
  • First Impression oleh Stevehuffphoto. “Hanya diuji di rumah pada siang hari dengan 35 f/2,8 dan 55 f/1.8. AF sangat cepat. Tidak ada keluhan. Lebih cepat dari NEX-7 dan RX1. EVF adalah hampir sama dengan EVF RX1 tersebut. EVF dari Olympus lebih baik tetapi yang satu ini masih fantastis. EVF terbaik kedua yang dibuat hari ini.”
  • Hands on di thecamerastore. “Gambar dari A7R, menakjubkan. Tidak sabar untuk memproses beberapa file RAW, tapi banhak hanya dengan melihat file JPEG, foto-foto tersebut sangat baik sebanding Nikon D800E. “
  • Preview oleh Imaging Resource. “Sangat kompak untuk kamera full-frame dengan lensa dapat dipertukarkan. Terasa solid, dan gambar setidaknya sebagus yang dari RX1”
  • Hands on oleh The Verge. “Dibandingkan dengan NEX-5N, kamera A7 baru terasa lebih berat, tapi tidak lebih canggung untuk mengoperasikan dengan satu tangan. Sebelumnya saya menggunakan Nikon D4, dan seperti latihan untuk kedua lengan”
  • Hands on oleh Luminous-landscape. “Perlu dicatat bahwa lensa FE adalah full frame, dan untuk alasan ini tidak dapat mengalahkan hukum optik. Ini berarti bahwa mereka tidak dapat sekecil lensa APS-C atau MFT, yang akan selalu memiliki kelebihan dalam hal ukuran lensa, berat badan dan produksi massal”
  • First look oleh Amateur Photographer. “Kamera yang lebih ringan dan kecil akan mengurangi beban ketika bepergian jarak jauh, untuk film dokumenter dan street fotografi, dengan tetap menghasilkan kualitas gambar premium tetapi dalam body kamera tidak mencolok.”
  • Hands on review oleh Pocket Lint. “Gambar terlihat sangat baik karena 24-megapixel. DOF yang tipis khas sensor full-frame, sementara detil terlihat berkualitas terbaik.”
  • Full Review di Photoreview. “Kamera Sony ini menghadirkan tantangan untuk produsen kamera lain untuk mengambil pendekatan yang berbeda dan membawa hal yang menarik (dan persaingan) ke midle-high end dari kamera interchangeable-lens”

Sony Unveils World’s First Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras 1

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 15, 2013 – Sony’s new A7 and A7R digital cameras are the world’s smallest full-frame interchangeable lens models 2. Highly anticipated by professional photographers and imaging enthusiasts alike, the two new cameras offer an unmatched combination of creativity, customizability and portability.

The A7R model features a 36.4 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor – the highest resolution sensor in the history of Sony’s A line – with no optical low pass filter for added resolving power and increased image detail. The A7 model boasts an impressive 24.3 effective megapixel 35mm Exmor® CMOS sensor and an innovative fast Hybrid AF system.

Each camera is equipped with advanced imaging features including a powerful new BIONZ® X processor; fast AF capabilities; a clear, bright XGA OLED Tru-finder, full HD 60p video recording, Wi-Fi® and NFC connection, dust-and moisture- resistance and more.

“With these new A7 camera systems, Sony has completely redefined the look and feel of a professional-grade digital camera,” said Mike Kahn, director of the interchangeable lens camera business at Sony Electronics. “The A7 and A7R cameras are significantly smaller, lighter and more portable than any other full-frame interchange lens camera yet deliver image quality, power and performance that professionals and enthusiasts crave.”

Both cameras feature full customization and control to meet the needs of the most demanding photographers. There are 9 different customizable buttons and 46 assignable functions that can be adjusted based on shooting preferences, including fully customizable front and back dials, a rear control wheel and an exposure compensation dial 3. Users can preview all changes to photographic settings in real-time on the high-contrast, 2.4 million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder or the high-resolution tiltable 3” LCD screen.

The new cameras share a powerful new BIONZ X processor that accurately reproduces details in textures in real-time via extra high-speed processing capabilities, and allows for exceptional low noise performance in all types of lighting conditions. Additionally, the powerful processor combined with the advanced, high resolution sensors allow both cameras to shoot pro-quality Full HD video (AVCHD progressive, 1920x1080p @ 60p) with richly detailed colors and ultra-low noise.

Clear Image Zoom has been enhanced for video recording as well, allowing for powerful close-up shots without sacrificing pixel count. Other pro-style movie features include an audio recording level control and display plus a “live” HDMI® output for passing through video to an external monitor or recording device.

The new cameras both have on-board Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities for instant image sharing and transfer to compatible smartphones and tablets. The A7R and A7 models can access Sony’s platform of PlayMemories™ Camera Apps, allowing users to add new effects, filters, utilities and more. This platform includes new ‘Multiple Exposure’ app, which automatically combines sequential exposures into one creative shot, and ‘Smart Remote Control’ 4, which allows for direct control of exposure and shutter speed from a connected smartphone and is particularly useful for self-portraits or group shots 5.
