Enter a whole new world of photographic expression with incomparable image quality and processing speed. A powerful new choice joins the α7R series with ever more advanced connectivity and enhanced reliability demanded by pros.
Creators' Cloud is a platform that supports creative work from shooting to production by combining advanced Sony camera technology with cloud-based AI. It's also a place for discovery and collaboration with other creators around the world. Explore web, mobile, and PC-based apps providing efficient solutions that integrate cameras with shooting and production apps and services.
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 61.0 MP.
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 full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera delivers highest standard ISO 32000 and reduces noise in the low- and mid-sensitivity ranges, achieving high-quality imagery.
Factors maximising superb resolution
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.
Silent shooting not only provides a useful advantage in venues where quiet is required but avoids vibration that can cause camera-shake blur. A vibration-free shutter maximises the extremely high α7R IV resolution for crisp clear images.
Regardless of remarkable image resolution, the α7R IV full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera 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 61.0-MP 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 to APS-C size. This means the α7R IV full-frame camera 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.
Real-time Eye AF represents the evolution of portrait shooting. This AI-aided technology provides immediate, accurate eye detection and tracking for crisp, clear focus on a subject's face, even when capturing a fast-moving model in a photo session. The photographer can concentrate on composition—for a smoother workflow that pros can count on.
Wireless and wired connective solutions for demanding pros
The α7R IV mirrorless camera supports various options for PC Remote functions and means of data transfer including 5-GHz Wi-Fi. Take full advantage of more choice and convenience in remote shooting operation and data backup.
Use PC Remote to control the α7R IV mirrorless camera or transfer data to PC via Imaging Edge™ "Remote" software application (ver. 2.0 or later). Faster 5GHz Wi-Fi option is available for more shooting flexibility.
Use USB 3.2 Gen 1 compatible USB Type-C™ port for faster transfer with new algorithm for wired PC Remote shooting. Transfer large uncompressed RAW images smoothly without workflow interruption.
To meet pro needs for prompt delivery, the α7R IV full-frame camera supports FTP background transfer during and after shooting for JPEG and RAW file delivery. Up to nine FTP servers can be assigned in advance.
Release time lag is minimised for smooth, responsive flash photography, with continuous flash shooting at up to 10fps. Select slow sync or rear curtain sync with wireless off-camera flash for enhanced versatility.
A standard sync terminal enables convenient synchronisation with studio flash units and other external lighting equipment to establish desired lighting setting in studio photography.
Elevate your photography with the Imaging Edge desktop applications. Use Remote to control and monitor shooting live on your PC screen, Viewer to quickly preview, rate and select photos from large image libraries and Edit to develop RAW data into high-quality photos for delivery.
Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning editing software that provides RAW development, easy management and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.
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. 240.8 MP from original data of approx. 963.2 MP (equivalent). Still images of architecture and art etc. are reproduced in true-to-life detail, texture, colour, mood, setting and 3D-like realism, with breath-taking 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.
The Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) is enhanced with a Digital audio interface. Use the new ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or new XLR Adapter Kit to record high-quality sound with minimised deterioration.
