Here are some great accessories for the good old Sony A7, A7s, and A7r. Most custom accessories are no longer in production but there are some still great options when looking at the basics.
Essentials – Screen Protectors, Batteries & Memory Cards
Best Screen Protectors For The Sony A7, A7s, A7r
Export Shield Screen Protector – Amazon – I have this brand for my Fuji. Works great. But I like the Sony above more for my Sony because it is thicker.
Best Batteries For The Sony A7, A7r, A7s
Sony NPFW50 Batteries – Amazon – Don’t buy the Wasabi or cheap third-party batteries unless you absolutely can’t afford extra Sony batteries. The Wasabi doesn’t last as long, and the wall charger will slowly ruin your batteries. Stick with Sony if you can. But if you can’t, the Wasabi will work, just don’t use the wall charger that comes with them. I’ve written a detailed article about buying batteries for the Sony A7 here.
SD Memory Cards – I have a whole page dedicated to finding the best SD card for you Sony A7 you can find here. My favorite card is the Sandisk Extreme Pro. They’re fast enough for the A7r, and I have had no problems with reliability with them. And I’ve used them for years.
Lens & LCD Screen Cleaning
6 Pack MagicFiber Micro Fiber Cleaning Cloths – Amazon
Never use anything like this on your sensor. Never touch your sensor with anything unless you are 100% sure you know what you’re doing.
I also don’t recommend using liquid cleaners on your lenses either unless you know for sure it’s ok. They can mess with the coatings. I’ve ruined a few UV filter coatings from doing this.
I would avoid wet cleaning if you can. People are scratching their sensors left and right. I wrote a whole article about cleaning the Sony A7 found here.
Here are a few alternatives to the wet cleaning method.
Sensor Brush – Amazon
Rocket Air – Amazon – Also great for cleaning dust off lenses.
Remotes & Triggers
There are two good ones I’ve used just for use as a shutter release. One by Sony, and one by Fototech. I think the Fototech is probably a better device if you just want a shutter release. You can read more about these here.
I wouldn’t shoot HDR or Landscape Photography without one of these.
Shutter Release Only
Sony RMTDSLR2 Wireless Remote – Amazon
Fototech IR Wireless Shutter Release Remote – Amazon
Mudder Wired Timer Remote – Amazon
The Meike Battery Grip above also comes with a wireless timer remote.
Full Frame E-Mount Lenses
There are now too many to list here so I’m keeping a page updated with all the latest and greatest full-frame e-mount lenses that work natively with the Sony A7, A7r, and A7s cameras.
You can see them all here.
