Sony Alpha a7 III deal: Save $300 on the popular mirrorless camera

Sony Alpha a7 III Mirrorless front view.

If you want one of the best digital cameras to boost your snap game (but don’t want to pay full price) come check out this deal on Sony’s Alpha a7 III. It’s a powerful stand alone camera that shoots both still images and movies. Right now it can be yours for $1,900. While that’s still certainly an expense, it is $300 down from the usual $2,200 and a price point we find worthy of a second look. There’s a category of person that, at this point, would rather look at smartphones with great cameras, but if you’re still with us, be sure to tap the button below to check out this camera deal and read on to see what all of the fuss is about.

Why you should buy the Sony Alpha a7 III

The Sony Alpha a7 III is both a single shot and movie camera, so let us break those down individually. With this camera, you’ll be able to shoot in 24.2MP quality, over double that of the iPhone 13 and its 12MP lenses. It has a focal range designed for everyday shots, such as a mountain landscape or a detailed photo of the ladybug that just landed on your offhand. Similarly, the Sony Alpha a7 III supports a wide variety of times and lighting conditions with its ISO range of 100 to 51,200. While our phone cameras can feel like muskets at times (shoot, wait, look at picture, shoot again) the Sony Alpha a7 III takes photos at 10 fps, so you don’t have to be so deliberate about your shot. If that bird does something cool, you’ll probably catch a pic of it.

That edges us into the land of video. The Sony Alpha a7 III is able to capture 4K HDR video footage, giving a lifelike color range. In other words, when you wirelessly stream your videos (and pics) to your TV — a feature of the Sony Alpha a7 III — your movies are going to look fantastic. If you own a bright 4K OLED TV you’ll have to try it.

Perhaps if there is any indication that the Sony Alpha a7 III is worth it, it is the nearly perfect rating the camera has after 1,000+ ratings over on Best Buy. Just tap the button below to go check them out yourself. Remember, this is a $2,200 camera we’re talking about that is now $1,900 as it is on a $300 off sale. So, go check it out and see if it’s right for you!

Best Camera Deals: Save on Canon, Panasonic, Nikon, and GoPro
fujifilm x t4 review set 2 dm 1

Whether you're looking for the best digital cameras or the best travel cameras, there are a ton of options out there, sometimes too many options, especially for those who aren't familiar with the photography world. Luckily, we've done a lot of legwork for you and collected a range of great camera deals across the spectrum, so even if you want something more sports-oriented, like a GoPro, there are a couple of deals for those too. So, let's jump right into it.
Today's Best Camera Deals
One of our favorite deals is the Canon EOS Rebel T7 going for $400, as it's one of the better DSLR cameras on the market, and it has a reasonably budget-friendly price on it, making it a great starter camera. Of course, if you've been in the game for a while and are looking for a powerful upgrade, the Sony Alpha 7R IV is one of the best full-frame cameras on the market, and while it still costs a hefty $3,200, that's still $300 off the usual $3,500 price tag. That said, if you're looking for something more portable and action-oriented, you can't go wrong with the GoPro HERO11 Black Mini, although if you're a professional content creator, the GoPro HERO9 Black 5K is probably the one to go for instead.

Do I Need a DSLR or a Mirrorless Camera?
Like most things, this really depends on what you're trying to do. Mirrorless cameras have fewer internal moving parts, which generally means they can capture images quicker, so if you're taking pictures of action-packed stuff like sports or animals in the wilderness, a mirrorless camera is a great option. On the other hand, DSLR cameras are great for low-light conditions and are great for anything from portraits to landscapes. DSLRs are also cheaper and have much better battery life, as well as having a decade or two worth of lenses to choose from.
