The Sony Alpha 7C is one of the most anticipated cameras by video producers as it’s the younger sibling of the A7iii and offers similar quality at a lower price. The Sony Alpha 7C is the ‘World’s smallest and lightest full-frame camera with SEL2860 Zoom Lens’ as per the company. The A7C can shoot videos in 4K with minimal noise and is capable of AI-driven object tracking in real-time.

The SEL2860 kit lens is only available with the body as a set, as of now. Sony says that the lens can also be purchased separately starting from January.
The Indian pricing of the Sony A7C is absurd, as it carries a price tag which is more than the Sony A7iii which costs Rs. 1,40,000/- in India. The A7C is a cut-down version of the A7iii and costs less in every other market across the globe, but it’s the opposite here in India with the A7C priced more premium.
