Sony has finally revealed its latest full-frame mirrorless camera – Sony a7R IV.
This is Sony’s and world’s first 61MP full-frame camera, with a burst speed of up to 10fps.
The a7R IV comes with a brand new BSI CMOS image sensor, the first true sensor update on Sony alpha since 2015.
Sony’s newly developed 35 mm full-frame back-illuminated CMOS sensor with 61.0 megapixels which enables the full-frame mirrorless α7R IV to attain expressive prowess once expected only in conventional medium-format cameras.
Newly featured in the a7R IV, this 5.76-million-dot electronic viewfinder provides high-precision, high-brightness and high-contrast visibility, reproducing fine detail with 1.6 times higher resolution than a7R III.
The a7R IV provides two media slots for SD cards, both SLOT 1 and SLOT 2 are now compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II for fast mass-volume data writing. Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data, separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies, and copy data from one card to the other.
This model is able to shoot full-frame 4K (oversampled from 6K), offering full-pixel readout in Super 35mm crop or a pixel-binned signal from the full width of the sensor.
Advanced AI-based subject recognition in Sony’s Real-time Eye AF includes a new algorithm supporting animal tracking for fast, precise, automatic detection and tracking of an animal’s eye.
The Sony a7R IV will arrive in September and is already available for pre-order, priced at $3,500.
