The camera is compatible with a wide variety of accessories including the rechargeable lithium-ion NP-FZ100 Battery, BC-QZ1 Battery Charger and VG-C3EM Vertical Grip. It is also compatible with many Sony E-mount camera accessories, and can share some accessories designed for the Sony a9.
A highly beneficial feature of the Sony A7 Mark III is its extended battery life – with a CIPA measurement of up to 710 shots per charge of Sony’s Z series battery NP-FZ100. As of its release date, it is the world’s longest battery life of a mirrorless camera and has approximately 2.2-times the capacity of the W series battery NP-FW50 utilised in the A7 II.
The camera supports Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth connectivity. It also offers a SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.1 Gen 1) USB Type-CTM Terminal for increased flexibility in power supply and faster image transfer speed during tethered shooting.
Yes, with a magnesium alloy chassis it is robust and rigid enough to handle rugged use with weather-sealing that ensures it is resistant to both dust and moisture. It’s also small and compact, and lightweight at just 657g with the battery and memory card included, ensuring you can take it with you on any adventure with a hassle.
Yes, it is possible to charge your batteries in-camera via USB. But we highly recommend having the compatible external BC-QZ1 Battery Charger for fast charging on the go that enables you to have more options and charge more than one battery at a time.
