ILCE-7C Language Issue


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I live in China.  I wish to purchase an ILCE-7C that offers the English language option, but as you know the cameras sold here do not.  I am considering importing from Germany via the amazon site here.  That leaves me with two questions- do the German market cameras offer the English language option; and if amazon says it is from Germany, do u think that means it is a 'Made for the German Market' camera?

Any comments appreciated.

Just scored an all-black α7C through a supposedly authorized dealer here, Hong Kong stock.  English.  So, never give up boys!  Beast of a camera, wow, makes my Leica DLux Typ-109 look so old,,,  haha,,,  hi-tech marches on, in fact I'm a bit intimidated by that part of it,,,,  but for a simple guy like me the aesthetic, which attracts me the most is simply.....   Awesome!  It's like a morph between α7IV and α6xxx body, but closer to a 7, which it is.  Bad-azz piece of technology. Just gorgeous!

Gratz on your purchase! As a long time APS-C user, the A7C got me tempted to switch to fullframe. I absolutely love the small 'rangefinder-style' form factor. What I really don't understand though is why Sony chose to cripple the A7C when it comes to ergonomics and customizability compared to the A6#00-cameras. If you compare it to the A6600 for example, the APS-C camera has 4 more customizable buttons (but lacks the exposure compensation dial), has a bigger viewfinder and a much deeper grip. Hope they fix these things with the A7CII.

    • I mostly see posterization artifacts, which are the result of lossy compressed RAW files (or bad jpeg conversion). Unfortunately, the A6400 doesn't offer uncompressed or lossless compressed RAW. The noise might indeed result from the smaller sensor than what you're used to. If you're not shooting at max aperture, you could try shooting at wider aperture and lower ISO. When you're not shooting at max aperture, fullframe versus APS-C shouldn't matter much in terms of ISO-performance combined with depth of field: at the same ISO and aperture value, fullframe offers better noise performance but with a narrower depth of field. This can be offset by choosing a larger aperture and lower ISO on the APS-C camera. If you want a fullframe camera the size of an A6400, try the A7C(ii).
    • ..unfortunately, the lighting was correct. The shot required deeper shadows. The K1 ff didnt have these banding issues [yes, I know the sensor is larger]. The film shots had details in the same light. The sony files, both the jpg and raw, had this banding/noise - with NO retouch or post adjustments [straight out of the camera]. the camera was purchased new a few years ago and I am trying to determine if there is something wrong, or the settings are wrong, or the camera just cant handle this kind of lighting [studio + softbox]. No shadow detail is one thing... banding/noise in the shadows is unacceptable. Does sony have a body this size that is FF ? Im wondering if that would make a difference..  dw
    • The root causes for banding are uneven lighting, incorrect exposure settings, or compression artefacts or certain kinds of artificial lighting, especially LED lights. Also the lens used plays a role, I have noticed it more with my sharpest lenses, looks like they outresolve the sensor when I have a uniform blue sky. There is more than one solution, and ultimately post-processing, but the root cause has to be identified first.
