Sony has just announced a new mirrorless camera and it looks like a beast on paper. This new camera is named as the A7R IV from the company. The camera comes with a full-frame sensor and works on mirrorless technology. This is different from DSLR cameras which are much bigger than mirrorless cameras in size. Now, we already know that Sony is currently making it big in the mirrorless department with various launches. Sony claims that this mirrorless camera gives you “medium-format image quality” and has a 61-megapixel sensor.
As the name suggests, the Sony A7r is already in its fourth generation. The previous generation of this camera, Sony A7R III, had a 42.4-megapixel sensor. Sony says that this camera gives you immense ability to zoom and crop images because of the monstrous sensor size. The Sony A7R IV will be released by the company in September for $3500.
If we compare other cameras with the Sony A7R IV in terms of prize, they are Panasonic S1R, Nikon Z7 and Canon EOS R. They have a 47.3MP, 45.7MP and 30.3MP sensor size respectively. This makes Sony miles ahead in the race for the best mirrorless camera.
Now, there are times when you need to capture the full picture but you also need to get every minute detail that you can get. This is where Sony’s 61MP camera comes in very handy which preserves every detail. Sony says that it has 15-stop Enhanced Dynamic Range and 5-axis Optical in-body image stabilization for shake-free images and video. You can also perform 4K movie recording in HDR on Sony’s A7R IV camera.
However, the biggest upgrade in this new camera is that you get an OLED viewfinder which lets you see the image you capture in real-time in much better quality as compared to those LCD displays. Along with that, the display is a 5.76 million dot UXGA panel instead of a VGA one.
