Time Magazine Names Sony a7R III a Top Gadget
By Joseph Tepper, November 27, 2017 @ 09:54 AM (EST)

Ignore all the controversy and speculation surrounding TIME’s “Person of the Year” (Sylvia Earl gets our vote). The real story is the magazine’s pick of the Sony a7R III as a Top 10 Gadget of 2017.

In a moment of photography going mainstream, the a7R III mirrorless camera joins the list alongside the iPhone X and Nintendo Switch gaming console. In fact, TIME describes the a7R III as, “one of the best mirrorless cameras ever made.”

It’s hard to argue with that semi-hyperbolic achievement. After all, the a7R III can shoot at twice the resolution of the newly announced Sony a9 and focus twice as fast in continuous mode as the a7R II.

You can pre-order an underwater housing for the a7R III from Backscatter. Or while you wait, check out other awesome gear in our own “2017 Underwater Photo and Video Holiday Gift Guide.”
