Sony has launched the A7R Mark IV full-frame mirrorless camera. It has a 61-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. You can capture images of up to 240 megapixels using pixel-shift mode. There is no need to capture RAW files because it offers 26.2-megapixel images in APS-C crop mode. The ISO range is 100 to 32000 (50 to 102400 in expanded mode). New A7R IV can capture images at 10 f/sec in continuous AF tracking mode with up to 68 images in a burst, in spite of extremely high resolution. It has 567 full-frame phase-detection AF points with 325 in crop sensor mode and 425 contrast AF points.
New A7R Mark IV allows for 100% autofocus coverage. It can allow for accurate focus even at the edges of the frame. It also features real-time Eye AF both for humans and pets due to latest-generation BIONZ X image processor. The new body design has a larger and deeper grip in order to fix one of the most complained issues on the A7R III. It has a 5-axis image stabilizer handy for both movies and stills, along with an all-new 5.76 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder.
Sony’s new camera can handle 4K at 30 f/sec with S-Log 2/3 capability, HDR recording and no pixel binning in Super 35mm mode. The A7R IV supports real-time Eye AF in movie mode. You also get touch tracking functionality. It doesn’t support 10-bit 4K recording either internally or via the HDMI output. The Sony A7R IV has an all-new Multi Interface Shoe. It allows a digital connection from the $350 ECM-B1M shotgun microphone or $600 XLR-K3M XLR adaptor kit. Other features include faster data transfer with USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 and WiFi. It has a dual UHS-II SD card slots and an upgraded grip and dust & moisture resistance. New A7R Mark IV is expected to arrive in September at an estimated price at $3,500.
