Out And About With A Frankenstein Camera.

Post by Pen Pusher » Thu Apr 08, 2021 12:15 pm

Having received my new Sony A7C camera during Lockdown 3.0, I’ve been itching to take it out on a proper test drive. The A7C (C = Compact) is a ‘bits of’ ‘camera. It has the same 24.2 megapixel Exmor R back-illuminated full-frame sensor, 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) system as used in the Sony A7 III and the BIONZ X processor that can be found in the flagship Sony A9 II and A7R IV cameras all shoehorned into the body of a slightly enlarged Sony A6600 crop sensor camera. Sony claims it’s the smallest full frame camera with 5 axis IBIS. The kit lens is a Sony FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 retractable full-frame zoom.

Taking advantage of the new Government advice ’Stay local if possible, but you can travel to anywhere to visit a place or someone as long as you return home the same day’ and complying with existing covid rules of mask, social distancing etc., I set off for the first time in 120 days for a bimble in the sunshine along the south bank of the Thames taking tourist type photo’s as I got used to the camera.
