The Sony A7 III is packed with features that will help you get the job done. It's considered by many to be the best general purpose, full frame mirrorless camera.
Its 24.2 megapixel sensor strikes a good balance between resolution, light sensitivity, dynamic range, readout speed and resulting file sizes.
Autofocus is a big step up from the previous generation, with 693 phase detection and 425 contrast detection AF points spread across almost the entire frame. Eye and face detection work in both still and motion modes, helping you keep your subject in focus without a lot of manual effort (this feature requires supported autofocus lenses).
Dual SD card slots lower your anxiety levels for important events, allowing you to record to two cards simultaneously. Alternatively, when shooting stills you can configure the camera to record RAW to one card and JPG to another.
The in-camera 5 axis stabilisation works for both motion and stills - reducing that unwanted handheld shake. It's possible to get more usable footage without using a camera support, increasing the versatility of the A7 III.
