Sony continues to charge the mirrorless revolution by announcing the fourth installment in their popular line-up of full-frame mirrorless cameras — the Sony A7R IV.
The Sony A7R IV is a major step up over its predecessors. This one now comes with a whopping 61-megapixel full-frame sensor, from the 42.4-megapixel of last year. It’s said that this is the first 35mm back-illuminated CMOS sensor to come with that much pixel count.
It also has a faster Bionz X image processor to accommodate the new sensor. This is also used for its smart AI-powered real-time tracking, with face detection, and eye detection that also works with animals.
Having a pixel-packed sensor means that you can crop images with usable quality and sharpness. The camera also has a wide ISO range of 100 up to 32,000.
The Sony A7R IV is equipped with 5-axis image stabilization, and a new blur reducing structure that further eliminates camera blur from subtle camera shakes.
Just like its predecessors, the A7R IV has strong movie recording features. It can shoot 4K HDR videos, with support for S-Log3 and HLG picture profiles.
The camera has a touchscreen on the dashboard, multi-interface shoe mount, wireless PC and smartphone control/remote, USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 1 connectivity, support for two SD cards, external battery mount, and a UXGA OLED viewfinder.
The Sony A7R IV will be available in the United States in September 2019 for USD3,499.99 (~Php178,900).
