Sony A7R IV
The 61.0-megapixel full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS sensor combined with BIONZ X imaging engine delivers unprecedented resolution, fine gradation, and low noise to open entirely new dimensions of detail just as pro photographers expect. The newly developed Exmor R CMOS image sensor boasts incomparable high resolution. The Back-illuminated design exhibits high sensitivity and low noise, despite an extremely high pixel count of 61.0MP. The BIONZ X image processing engine and front-end LSI to maximise high-resolution sensor performance and up to 15-stops of dynamic range. Regardless of increased pixels, the α7R IV delivers highest standard ISO 32000, and reduces noise in the low- and mid-sensitivity ranges, achieving high-quality imagery. The in-body 5-axis image stabiliser algorithm is optimised to maximise high-resolution 61.0-megapixel image sensor performance. This fully supports your handheld shooting for reliability as effective as 5.5-stop higher shutter speed. To maximise the incredible resolution available to the α7R IV the tiniest vibrations need to be supressed, so Sony re-engineered the shutter unit assembly with dampened screws to absorb any shutter shock. Combined with an enhanced image stabiliser algorithm, blur is dramatically reduced, and pin-sharp detail is reliably captured.
The 5.76-million-dot electronic viewfinder reproduces fine detail with approximately 1.6 times higher resolution than α7R III.
You can select “High” quality mode for high-precision yet natural realism while suppressing moiré and jaggies for better concentration. Smoother image with 120/100fps frame rate makes it easy to track moving subjects. Regardless of remarkable image resolution, the α7R IV maintains its shooting speed of up to 10fps with a mechanical shutter (up to 8fps in live-view continuous shooting mode). This allows you to capture decisive moments — such as motion of wild animals — with subtle details made possible only by the 61.0MP high-resolution imaging capability. Thanks to extraordinary image resolution, you can still maintain remarkable high-resolution images as approximately 26.2 megapixels even after cropping a full-frame image down into APS-C size. This means the α7R IV can help you proactively utilise 61.0-megapixel full-frame shooting, for example, in bird photography that tends to require cropping editing to magnify captured images.
Advanced AF algorithms contribute to AF precision at light levels as low as EV-3. ‘Focus Priority in Aperture Drive’ option is for more accurate focusing in dim lighting and when aperture is stopped down. Because buffer memory size is 1.5 times larger, the camera maintains burst shooting speed of up to approx. 68 images. With APS-C shooting mode, you can shoot approximately three times more photos than with full-frame shooting mode. AI-based Real-time Tracking is newly featured to greatly increase your success rate in challenging shots.
Simply designate a subject and press the shutter button halfway, and rely on the camera to steadfastly track the subject. With “Face/Eye Priority in AF” function, the α7R IV seamlessly changes tracking targets between face and eye when the subject is a person. Thanks to an improved algorithm, the α7R IV now supports animal eye in addition to human eye tracking, allowing fast, precise, automatic detection and tracking. This animal eye support will greatly increase your success in capturing images of animals in the wild or favourite pets at home when an obstacle comes into view or the camera’s horizontal/vertical orientation often changes.
Now supports compositing 16 images with Pixel Shift Multi Shooting. This renewed feature shifts the sensor in half or one pixel increments in a programmed order to capture 16 pixel-shifted images, composited into one high-precision image of approx. 240.8MP20 from original data of approx. 963.2MP (equivalent). Still images of architecture and art, etc. are reproduced in true-to-life detail, texture, colour, mood, setting, and 3D-like realism, with breathtaking fidelity.
Meet the rigorous autofocus demands of 4K movies with enhanced Fast Hybrid AF. You have high speed, precision, and tracking performance at your command for smooth, stable AF movie shooting. Adjust AF tracking sensitivity for steady focus. Real-time Eye AF newly supports movie shooting by detecting the subject’s eyes and continuing to track one eye. As the α7R IV keeps that eye in precise focus, you can concentrate on composition. When shooting movies, touch a subject on the LCD monitor. The α7R IV begins focusing and following with Touch Tracking. If the α7R IV spots a human eye, Real-time Eye AF activates and tracks it, too.
