Sony launched their fourth-generation high-resolution full-frame mirrorless digital camera just two months ago. The new Sony A7R IV features the highest resolution sensor of any full-frame camera on the market. At 61 megapixels, this BSI-CMOS sensor exceeds the resolution of most Medium Format digital cameras while still fitting within a relatively compact body.
This camera follows the A7-series with a nearly identical design that minimally increased in size while getting refined ergonomics. The internal imaging pipeline has been completely reworked around the new 61 MP Full-Frame BSI-CMOS sensor with 576-Point Phase-Detect AF built-in and a faster Exmor R processor. The hybrid shutter and 5-axis image-stabilization remain similarly specified while a new ultra-high resolution EVF made its debut on the A7R IV. This 0.5″ EVF offers a class-leading 5.8 MP of resolution. It shows 100% coverage at 0.78X magnification and has an Eye-Start Sensor to automatically switch between the EVF and 1.4 MP 3″ LCD on the back of the camera.
A highly detailed review of the Sony A7R IV just got published at Neocamera. This review examines the image quality and performance of this full-frame with a comparison against another state-of-the-art Full-Frame mirrorless and a Medium-Format digital camera. It also goes over all features of the A7R IV with a in-depth look at its ergonomics and usability. Follow the link to read the Sony A7R IV review at Neocamera.
