Sony A7s vs. Sony A7r

The ‘Difficult’ Decision to Make

The best way to relive great moments is to capture them….forever. A high-quality picture camera is the best investment for nurturing and treasuring memories. We have two masterpieces from Sony – The Sony A7s and the A7r. These cameras have championed the ‘light’ frontier and can work with the same precision and skill in its absence. Claiming to be the world’s smallest lens-interchangeable cameras, let us explore the features of both these beauties to select the best buy, in terms of features and price.

The Sony A7S:

This is a 35 mm full-frame sensor-equipped camera with tremendous sensitivity and can capture videos and pictures like real. This soundless camera can capture animal life in its basic natural forms as it is simply soundless would not send out noise signals to the fauna to scare them away. The compact, lightweight body is moisture and dust-resistant and is made from the super reliable metal, magnesium. The video shoot quality is exemplary with features like Optical SteadyShot for image stability and zooming. It has an inbuilt technology that helps transfer data to an android/tablet by just touching it, and a PlayMemories Camera App for uploading pictures and social networking ease. With 9 customized buttons that carry 54 different functions the Sony A7s camera is a must add in the collection of photography lovers.

The Sony A7R:

Another crowning glory in the mirrorless camera collection, this 35 mm palm-sized camera has a full-frame and 36.4 mp interchangeable lenses. The BIONX Z processing engine and its Exmor sensors achieve high speed, sensitivity, and precision needed for professional photography. The OLED (XGA) Tue Finder adjusts color combinations and brightness control perfect like real-life settings. Documentaries can be created with professional crispness and clarity owing to the cameras high-class lens, sensor, headphone jack, and XLR audio adapter. With 2 wireless sharing capabilities and an upload feature for social networking, this marvel is Sony’s masterpiece.

Having explored the basic features of both the cameras, the big question is which one to buy?

We will overlook the price factor for a while and focus more on features, usability, and precision. Here are some of the main points of comparison:

The Sony A7R:

  • Has a 10% better image quality (95 as compared to A7s’s 85)
  • Has a color depth that is finer (26 bits to the 23.6 bits of A7s)
  • Is a higher resolution camera that captures 3 times more intricate details
  • Viewfinder has a classy image range( 14.4 EV as compared to A7s’s 13.3 EV)
  • Is lighter at 465 gm when compared to the A7s which is 489gms.

The Sony A7S:

  • Has a better light sensitivity at 409,600 ISO, whereas the A7r stands at just 25,699 ISO.
  • Is absolutely noiseless at 2993 ISO compared with A7r which is 2746 ISO.
  • Shooting speed is faster at 5fps and has a capacity of 30% faster shooting than that of A7r

Wrap Up:

Though both the cameras are high-quality, compact, and light-weight devices, the choice with the customer is tough. If we keep the price as the deciding factor, the A7r steals the show. And even if we go solely by the features, the A7r and the A7s are suited for different applications. The A7s has an unparallel light sensitivity feature which beyond excellence and gives a crisp and clear image. And if you are still undecided, go for a real photo shoot and click pictures and decide after the results come in.
