61.0 effective megapixels, true-to-life gradations, and blazing speed come together in a full-frame mirrorless camera body that is capable of capturing reality you can almost feel.
Image quality and expression that were once only possible with medium-format cameras are now available in a compact, lightweight α series full-frame body with features, connectivity, and reliability designed to support professional workflows both in the studio and out on location.
Stunning stills and movies with professional reliability and productivity.
Another milestone from the leader in mirrorless imaging.
Ever more inspiring
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.
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 α7R IV captures the mood of each scene and the texture of aimed subjects.
*Approximate effective pixels.
5.76-million-dot UXGA OLED Tru-Finder
This 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 a 120/100fps frame rate makes it easy to track moving subjects.
The highest-level burst speed in its class
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 61.0 MP high-resolution imaging capability.
*Up to 10fps in continuous "Hi+" mode, and up to 8fps in continuous "Hi" mode. Maximum fps will depend on flash and camera settings.
Useful 26.2 MP with APS-C cropping
Thanks to extraordinary image resolution, you can still maintain remarkable high-resolution images at approximately 26.2 megapixels even after cropping a full-frame image down to APS-C size.
This means the α7R IV can help you proactively utilize 61.0-megapixel full-frame shooting, for example, in bird photography that tends to require cropping editing to magnify captured images.
Rely on smart AI-based Real-time Tracking
AI-based Real-time Tracking13 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.
*Will be activated when [Tracking] is set in the [Focus Area] menu. When [Animal] is selected as a detectable subject, Real-time Tracking cannot be activated.
Real-time Eye AF with animal eye tracking for more success
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.
*For using this function, it is necessary to choose "Animal" mode from "Subject Detection" menu from "Face/Eye AF Set".
This animal eye support will greatly increase your success in capturing images of animals in the wild or favorite pets at home when an obstacle comes into view or the camera's horizontal/vertical orientation often changes.
*Depending on shooting scene and subject condition, performance may not be fully effective.
Real-time Eye AF: evolution of portraiture
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 the subject’s face, even when capturing a fast-moving model in a photo session.
The photographer can concentrate on composition — for smoother workflow that counts with pros.
More efficient workflow
Wireless and wired connective solutions for demanding pros
The α7R IV supports various options for PC Remote functions and means of data transfer including 5 GHz Wi-Fi.
*Models sold in some countries/regions support IEEE 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz) wireless LAN only. 5 GHz communication may be restricted in some countries and regions.
Take full advantage of more choice and convenience in remote shooting operation and data backup.
A different dimension of fidelity
Now supports compositing 16 images with Pixel Shift Multi Shooting
*The Imaging Edge (Remote/Viewer/Edit) desktop application is required for compositing. Image compositing may not be successful if camera or subject movement causes blur. The use of a tripod is recommended, as is the use of PC tethered control or a remote commander (when PC tethered control is not being used) where possible. Uncompressed RAW and silent mode are automatically selected for Pixel Shift Multi shooting. Some restrictions apply to flash and other devices. Refer to the Sony support site for details. http://www.sony.net/psms/
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).
*19,008 x 12,672 pixels. Still images of architecture and art, etc. are reproduced in true-to-life detail, texture, color, mood, setting and 3D-like realism, with breathtaking fidelity.
