2021: A camera that made me willing to bring out, self -purchased SONY A7C full -frame micro -single experience
This content comes from@What is worth buying app.
Hello everyone, I am Mr. Rabbit tooth.
I love coffee and engaged in coffee, but I am still a living home worth buying.
It is worth buying for 8 years. At the end of 2021, this is the 119th week of my continuous creation. It seems that it will be too late for 2021. It will be left to 2022 as the beginning of 2022.
Not long ago, my wife gave me a Sony A7C full -frame micro -single camera, and immediately took it to open the one -month Yunnan coffee journey. This article I will give you first (xuan ) Shao (Yao )’s beloved “Little Seven” and my personal choices about lens and camera accessories.
As a small full -frame and micro -single listed in 2020, there are already a lot of evaluation of Sony A7C in the site, and I will no longer be embarrassed. In addition to opening the box, I will talk to you about the use process in Yunnan this month. Among them, some of my own experience and skills. Recently, I heard that A7C is going to discontinue production, and I don’t know if the price will increase.
▼ ▼ ▼ 以 Attention, the following enters the text.
1. Sony A7C open box
As mentioned earlier, this is a gift that my wife gave me in Double Eleven, but it was not bought with cash, but was used to buy Jingdong Card worthy of buying and exchanged. Mori is a big piece, but his wife insisted on the upcoming trip, so she decided to add a higher -level camera to the family–
Sony A7C, which we have been optimistic about
At the Double Eleven, the bare metal price was 1.22W. In addition to the previous 1W Jingdong Card, it also added an additional 2,000 ocean. This should be regarded as the most expensive one for my camera.
Open the box instant ~ shoulder straps, batteries, data cables, charging heads, manuals, and so on.
Holding it in my hand, I really can’t imagine such a mini body, which is actually a full -frame sensor.
Top details: Model Wirries and exposure compensation wave wheels, switches, shutter keys, video keys, microphones, and gray hot boots caps that are spit and silver body.
There are not many buttons and pulsses on the top of the aircraft, and without the front wave wheels are also a point that everyone is widely spit. I am not used to the dual wave wheel.
The bottom battery compartment, Sony’s FZ100 battery is very powerful, 2280mAh, you do n’t need to change the battery all day long. On the journey, I usually charge the electricity once every 2 days, and each time it is charged, there are at least 30 electricity when the electricity is charged. %. Compared to the Panasonic camera before going out, I need to bring 2 more batteries, which is much light.
I used only half -frame and M43 camera before. For the first time, I touched the full -frame sensor. It was really big …
Naturally, the camera has no money to buy G heads, but A7C’s original cover 28-60mm F4-5.6 is very optimistic because of the small volume. I spent 1,000 on the small yellow croaker to buy a new kit to disassemble the head.
The screen behind the screen is upgraded to the side turning type. The convenience of using it is more accustomed to turning up and down, but another advantage of the side turning type is that it is more convenient to shoot videos. However, the screen of Sony also has a slot, that is, no matter the high -end machine, the so -called touch screen can only support the touch focus, does not support full touch screen operations, and cannot touch the control menu.
The side is the NFC contact area, but when I put on the camera leather case, I cannot connect to NFC.
There are rich interfaces on the left side of the camera, and there is an SD single card slot in the middle. This is another point that many people will talk about, but I have never used the machine with dual -card slots, it doesn’t matter. I can accept a sacrifice of a card slot in exchange for the ultimate volume.
Second, this is a camera that I am willing to take out
The camera that can’t be taken out is also a furnishings for me.
So the most important criterion for my choice of cameras and lenses is
Essence No matter if you go out every day, there is no burden on your car. (About the origin of this panda pendant, see the previous article of Pu’er)
I prefer to carry the shoulder bag+inner linery. In addition, the latest publicly tested Manfutotot Bag is also particularly suitable. It is especially suitable for A7C micro -single cameras.
The earliest buying camera was the D90 of the shoe factory, and the D300 was changed later, but the bulky SLR made me once I did not like to take it out. The camera+lens exceeded 3 pounds. Dedicated.
So I turned into the pit of the M43 later, Olympus EM5, EP5 (for parents) and Panasonic GX85 (wife’s). Although it is slightly inferior to the quality, they let me continue to like to go out with my camera.
(I am to match this lens cover, I bought 17mm F1.8 deliberately))
I love this push -pulling feel too much.
Not only is the equivalent 35mm hanging comfortably, but this manual focus switching ring is really refreshing.
Putting the Sony A7C and these cameras together, you can see how delicate its volume is, almost equivalent to the Panasonic GX85 of my M43 format.
Together with the shoe factory SLR, it can better reflect the gap of volume.
Scientific and technological progress visible to the naked eye.
From the earliest fixed screen, to the upper and lower folding screen, and finally the A7C’s rollover screen, I have it. However, as far as the experience is concerned, it is more fast and intuitive to open up and down. When the screen is on the side of the lens, there is always a deviation on the lens movement.
Full -frame sensor
Getting started from DX and did not change to FX, but fell to M43, but finally returned to the embrace of the full -frame sensor. Compared with my Olympus EM5 M43 sensor, Xiaoqi’s sensors are really much.
Not very easy to use menu
But having said that, this menu is really not easy to use. Not only can touch the menu, but even finding a function for a long time. For example, taking pictures when I go to the cafe. I usually get used to mute, that is, electronic shutter, but the shutter sound and focusing sound of the A7C actually need to be controlled by 2 settings, so I need to change 2 settings every time I switch to the mute!
This is several options that I currently use in the collection list. Mute, half -frame mode is more commonly used by me. In addition, if the photo is deleted directly in the computer reader, there will be problems that cannot be displayed in the camera, so you need to “repair the image database” to rebuild.
After talking about the fuselage, I want to talk about this kit lens that everyone doesn’t seem to like.
SONY/Sony Fe 28-60mm F4-5.6 Full-frame standard zoom lens (SEL2860)
As a shot released with the A7C, SEL2860 is a small and light full -frame label lens. The weight is only 167g, the size is 66.6mm diameter*45mm length, and the A7C can form an extremely lightweight full -frame image system.
I have used a lot of label lenses, such as Nikon’s 18-105mm, Olympus 14-42mm. This 28-60mm is the highest quality. On the A7C 2400W pixel sensor, it can show a very good sharpness of sharpness. And resolution.
How to use. Its way to open it is a bit similar to my previous Olympus 1442. It needs to open the lens to 28mm available state first, and usually puts away it for easy carrying and storage.
In contrast, I prefer Olympus 1442 electric scorched heads. It would be better if 28-60 can refer to its design.
The aperture is small. This is indeed small, F4-5.6, and even changed my daily habit of using aperture priority. In order to maintain sufficient capture speed, I usually maintain the shutter speed of 1/160. , The shutter is not high enough. This may be the correct way to open the lens of 28-60mm.
Recently, the focusing distance is 0.3m (28-terminal) -0.45m (60 end). It cannot be said that it is easy to use, but the recent focus distance of Sony lens has not been close. (Still my Olympus 12-40mm is easy to use, recently focusing only 0.2m)
No 24mm wide -angle. Is there anything that can be talked about, do you usually hang 24-70. In fact, the wide -angle end of 24 and 28 is really no different. 28 is incomplete, 24 is enough, and two steps take two steps. Those who really take architecture and super-wide portraits all use 16-35mm. This is the building I took in Kunming 1903. The 28mm is really difficult to capture the big scene, but I use the mobile phone 19mm wide -angle shooting to reach the standard.
This was taken by a mobile phone 19mm wide -angle.
The half -frame mode opens the new world. The full-frame camera generally has a function called a half-frame mode. After the A7C opens the half-frame mode, it becomes 1000W pixels, and the focal length of 28-60 becomes 42-90mm.

3. How to configure the lens for “Little Seven”
The 28-60mm pullover mentioned above. I think it is a very good hook choice of A7C. If you want a portable labeling lens, it is good to use it.
SEL35F28Z, SEL50F25G, SEL40F25G, SEL24F28G
Of course, it cannot be said that 28-60 is the best hanging head. Consider the small volume, as well as SEL35F28Z, the new SEL50F25G, SEL40F25G, SEL24F28G and other series of fixed focus, while meeting the portable characteristics of the A7C, suitable for A7 hanging.
SEL50F25G, SEL40F25G, SEL24F28G
Shima 24mm F3.5, 35mm F2, 45mm F2.8, 65mm F2
Sima released a series of CONTEMPORARY lens in 2020, which is very suitable for A7C small body. With a strong retro style, compact lens volume and heavy feel, it comes with a magnetic lens cover. Sima names it “i” series, and strives to create a “small and advanced fixed focus lens”.
The most optimistic about 35mm F2, 45mm F2.8 are the two lenses. The 35mm F2 lens is small. The key is that it is cheaper than the original SEL40F25G, and the aperture is larger. 45mm F2.8 is equivalent to the original SEL50F25G, but the price is much cheaper. If the aperture is not high, it is also a good choice for hanging up.
The selection of zoom lens that adapts to A7C is actually very tangled. Without considering the rotary loop, there are currently Sony Sel24105G, SEL24240, Sima 28-70, Tenglong 28-75, Tenglong 28-200. This form, compare the size and weight of the lens. After comprehensive consideration, the original kravine 28-60 is the smallest, but in terms of the quality of the comprehensive lens, Sima 28-70 is the most suitable label lens for A7C.
Shima 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN ｜ Contemporary
The size is 72.2mm*101.5mm and weighs 470g. Its weight and volume are not much different from my Olympic Obas 12-40mm, and it is more acceptable than the appearance. It feels acceptable. The head of Oba 12-40 is basically my patience of the weir single conventional lens. This head is still very classic, with excellent feel, and the favorite of the party to touch the party, especially the hits of the manual focus ring. It is because of this head that I have kept EM5 without retirement.
The volume and weight of the lens are fine with the A7C body. (If A7C can be transferred to this lens, it will be fine)
Finally, the two individuals are large. Although it is a bit more portable with the A7C, I prefer the lens.
The Sony camera is too broad on 35mm, with 35.4GM, FE35.8 below, and 35 2.8za in the middle, but I prefer 35.4za, although it is the old man who released 6 years, although the purple edges are serious Although it is very heavy, after all, it is the Sony 35 flagship of that year. It is fast -focusing, good -looking, Zeiss Blue label, plus the price of about 5,000 second -hand, and I think the above problems are not a problem.
Sony’s 24-105mm F4 is a G head, covering the common focus of wide-angle to telephoto. This focal length plus F4 constant aperture, whether it was once a shoe factory or moved, it is a very practical lens. Fast focus, good picture quality, except for the larger points (83.4mm*113.3mm, 663g), there are no other problems.
How big is it?
At present, the Nikon 17-55mm F2.8 in my hand has the same volume and weight as 24-105. Here I use it to replace it and match the A7C body to make an effect demonstration.
Not to mention the volume, the weight of light will appear heavy and light.
Do you say GM master head? It is deep and expensive, and leave it to the real master.
4. The choice of my “Little Seven” accessories
(1) Smallrig Smog A7C Rabbit Cage
After buying Dafa Xiao 7, the corresponding ones should be equipped with some camera accessories. After seeing that many people came the camera, the first thing was to stick the whole machine film, but I don’t like this (I don’t like the film on the phone) At this time, I stared at the “rabbit cage”.
The word “rabbit cage” may be strange for friends who have not been exposed to photography. Of course, it is not a cage for rabbits. “Rabbit Cage” comes from the professional photography field. Essence
Friends who were purchased A7C Amway, a rabbit cage domestic brand: Smallrig Smoig. Simer’s rabbit cage is very rich on the accessories. It was very eye -catching in the store and was persuaded by friends rationally. He only started the Smoge A7C VLOG suit (rabbit cage+three tripods), and additional handle and handle.
The VLOG suit is a special rabbit cage and tripod. The rabbit cage is made of aluminum -magnesium alloy, which is not easy to deform, and the weight of the camera does not exceed 900g. For the portable A7C, even if it is installed, it is installed. The rabbit cage does not affect the portable performance of the whole machine.
After buying the A7C, this is also the first wave of accessories for Xiaoqi. People say that the photography pit is large, oh ~~~ I have to work harder to move bricks.
The installation tool magnetic adsorption at the bottom of the rabbit cage is convenient to prevent it. It does not affect the opening of the battery cover after installation. The overall texture is 100 points.
The rabbit cream contains external exterior interfaces such as 1/4 threaded holes, 3/8 thread holes, and cold boots, which can expand rich accessories. After installing the upper hand and the side handle, this is not only fits the camera and expands convenient, but it also brings A7C to shoot videos to make a more comfortable grip. Seeing the cute little seven instantly became so professional and powerful in an instant. My wife also likes it very much.
After installing the rabbit cage, hand -lifting, and handle, whether it is daily shooting, one -handed, or holding hands, it provides a very comfortable use experience. In the future, I will use Xiaoqi to record more beautiful lives. Please do a lot care.
By the way, forgot to say that the tripod is also made of metal, with flexible gimbal, and the Aka board at the bottom of the rabbit cage can be used to achieve fast disassembly, flexible and creative shooting, and absolute VLOG weapon.
This set of rabbit cage equipment is actually not very expensive. In addition, it is relatively affordable to buy in Double Eleven. The link is attached to it. Friends who choose the Sony A7C camera like me may wish to consider this rabbit cage accessory.
(2) Orico solid -state mobile hard disk
The small 7 of Dafa 7, then the corresponding ones should be equipped with some camera accessories. The A7C has 2400W pixels. I usually take pictures of JPG and RAW. In addition to the card, a convenient and efficient and durable mobile hard disk is needed.
It ’s all 2021, and it’ s outdated to use a mechanical mobile hard disk, so I chose a mobile hard disk with SSD as the core.
ORICO Xunlong-Wing Solid Movement Hard Disk (512G)
Using the NVME protocol and USB3.1 interface to achieve high -speed transmission, 22g light and portable, aluminum alloy material ensures that it is strong and durable.
This is the complete body of the mobile hard disk. Blue is also the color I like very much. The aluminum alloy material is resistant to falling and abrasion.
If the picture above does not see its volume, put it on the hand. Is it the same size as the U disk, but there is indeed a M.2 NVMe SSD in the inside. It uses 3D NAND flash memory TLC particles to support up to 940MB/s rapid reading and writing. This is no more convenient for me with a large number of file storage needs.
The connection uses the USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C interface, which is equipped with two short data cables of C to C and C to A. However, it is a pity that the mobile hard disk does not have a built-in cable, which is a bit inconvenient for me who is lazy.
Test it to my ThinkPad T540P, because the computer is old, only the USB3.0 interface, which is limited by the interface. The speed will be faster.
After thinking about it, I asked a friend to bring a computer with a USB3.1 Gen2. I ran again. The read and write speed seemed to take off all of a sudden, and even higher than the officially introduced 940MB/s. It was really Book Thinking.
The earliest contact with high -speed storage started from the Sandisk CZ80. The fever is easy to reduce fever. After that, it is no longer willing to wait for the file to transmit the lengthy time. Whenever you buy a mobile storage device, the first point is the transmission speed. Therefore, the Orico NVME high -speed mobile hard disk is in line with me. Not only is the access to the file is super fast, but it is also small and durable. It is very suitable for going out to carry.
(3) Camera shoulder straps and leather cases
The shoulder strap of this green leather camera was hand -made by my wife handicraft, so I like it, and I can’t buy it ~~~
This shoulder strap was originally intended to give Panasonic GX85, but because the fuselage was small, I always used the wristband, and there was no chance to use the shoulder strap. Special suitable.
I rarely used the shoulder straps, but the A7C+2860 lightweight volume, with a comfortable shoulder strap, just hanging the camera on the neck when going out without pressure.
The leather case was absorbed by my previous Panasonic GX85 grip of my nails. After Xiao Qi arrived, I immediately bought a brown leather case.
Most of the leather cases that adapt to A7C are made by hand workshops. There are no links here. You can find a lot of A7C leather cases. Pick one who likes to protect Xiaoqi.
The installation is also very simple. The bottom screw can be tightened with coins, and it has a battery port. You can replace the battery without removing the leather case.
Previously, GX85 bought this kind of leather case because it was cut off by the nails. The front and inside of the handle of Xiaoqi are plastic, which is also more likely to be grinded by nails. Now it is also equipped with Xiaoqi, which not only protects the handle of the fuselage, but also increases the handle of the handle. There will be no embarrassment of small thumbs nowhere to place.
(4) Peak design camera fast disassembly buckle (compassion of Besmog fast disassembly buckle)
After buying a rabbit cage, the shoulder strap will slightly affect each time you use it. The fast -disassembly buckle of the peak design is planted. There are also many imitated products on the Internet. The price is much cheaper, but considering the value of the camera, it is more expensive, but Attentive.
Especially for this very expensive and desired thing, it is necessary to buy it while the Double Eleven and Twelve Discounts are saved, and it seems that it is very cost -effective.
The rope buckle on the camera, and the bayonet mother seat and the shoulder strap are connected.
It only takes one second to complete the installation and disassembly.
After that, I saw that Smog also had similar products, so I bought it for a comparison. I originally thought that it could be universal. I didn’t expect … I was not universal.
Smog’s bayonet mother seat has only 1 shoulder strap, and the peak design of the bayonet has two sizes of the shoulder straps.
Smog’s rope buckle is larger and the rope is thicker.
The fixed method of Smog and the peak design is not the same. In contrast, Smog’s partial loosening, the peak design is slightly larger.
On the whole, the fast -moving buckle of the peak design should be more refined, but the price is more expensive; Smog looks not as delicate as the peak design, but it is also good, and the most important thing is much cheaper.
The above is the last original graphic of my end in 2021. I will share with you the joy and experience of using Sony A7C and the short -term use. Thank you for the support and encouragement of the aunts and friends for so long. I have met so many friends who like coffee like me like me here, and I will continue to share more about coffee content for everyone.
I am Mr. Rabbit. In 2022, please take care of it and wish you all a happy new year in advance.
