Sony A7R IV Overview

By B&H Photo's
Sony a7R IVA Mirrorless Camera
A New World of Photographic Expression
Moving to an even higher resolution realm, the Sony a7R IVA continues the noteworthy series of highly capable full-frame cameras, characterized by impressive stills and video performance and versatility. This fourth edition of the a7R sees the inclusion of an updated 61MP sensor along with faster processing, improved AF performance, and a more well-rounded feature-set for both high-end photo and video applications.
Sensor and Processor
61MP Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor
Featuring a back-illuminated design, the newly designed full-frame 61MP Exmor R CMOS sensor offers a mixture of incredible resolution with high clarity, low noise, and a wide 15-stop dynamic range. The sensor's structure promotes impressive image quality and a copper wiring layer dramatically improves data transmission speed for creating 14-bit, high-resolution 61MP stills with a native sensitivity range from ISO 100-32000, which can be further expanded to ISO 50-102400.
BIONZ X Image Processor
The BIONZ X engine's high-speed image processing enables fast continuous shooting, 4K video recording, and advanced AF tracking. The quick processing also helps to reduce rolling shutter and other motion distortions for clean rendering of moving subjects.

In terms of shooting speeds, the sensor and processor enable up to 10 fps shooting, at full resolution, for up to 68 consecutive frames, with full-time AF/AE.
Pixel Shift Multi Shooting
This unique compositing mode allows you to achieve even greater resolution than the 61MP sensor affords. Working in conjunction with the sensor-shift image stabilization, this mode shifts the sensor while making 16 consecutive exposures in order to acquire approximately 240.8MP of information for greater color accuracy and detail than possible with a single exposure, along with an impressive image size of 19,008 x 12,672-pixels. These files can then be merged together during post-production by using the Sony Imaging software suite.
Fast Hybrid AF System
An updated Fast Hybrid AF system now employs a combination of 567 phase-detection points, which cover approximately 99.7% of the height and 74% of the width of the frame, along with 425 contrast-detection areas for reliable and quick autofocus and subject tracking performance. This focusing system also achieves especially quick speed and reliable tracking, as well as enhanced low-light focusing response down to -3 EV.

The apt focus system also lends itself to a variety of focusing functions for refined accuracy:
  • Lock-on AF maintains focus on moving subjects throughout the use of a configurable frame that is set over the desired moving subject
  • Expand Flexible Spot employs neighboring focus points to retain focus on moving subjects even if the originally selected point loses focus
  • Eye AF can be used to base focus on recognized human subjects' eyes for portraits and is available in both AF-S and AF-C modes and for both stills and video. Eye AF can be used when photographing animal subjects, too, with any focusing mode when shooting stills.
  • The Focus Magnifier function can be used for critical focus when homing in on minute subject details
  • Rear touchscreen can be used for Touch Focus control and a Touchpad Focus Control mode lets you use the rear screen intuitively while keeping your eye to the viewfinder
Video Recording
UHD 4K Video Recording in XAVC S Format
  • Internal recording of UHD 4K video is possible in multiple frame rates up to 30 fps using the full width of the sensor with 8-bit 4:2:0 color sampling using the 100Mbps XAVC S codec.
  • Oversampled 4K recording is also possible, which uses a 6K capture area with a Super 35 crop for greater detail. This full pixel readout is void of pixel binning for higher quality imagery with reduced moiré and aliasing.
  • Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps. The high-speed, 120 fps recording also enables 4x and 5x Slow& Quick Motion (S&Q) movie recording with the frame rate set to either 30p or 24p.
  • In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.
  • 4K video recording also avails the ability to produce 8MP stills during playback by taking a frame grab from a movie and storing it as a separate file.
S-Log3 and HLG Color Control
  • HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support permits recording within a wide color gamut for producing HDR-ready content directly from the camera.
  • S-Log3 is also available for producing a 14+-stop dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone regions of the image.
Body Design and Connectivity
Viewfinder and LCD Screen
  • Updated OLED Tru-Finder EVF has a 5.76m-dot resolution for bright, clear viewing in rich detail
  • Dedicated High quality setting enables a 120 fps refresh rate for especially smooth playback of moving subjects.
  • The 3.0" 2.36m-dot rear LCD has a touch panel design for intuitive operation and focusing control.
  • Screen tilts upward 107° and downward 41° to benefit working from high and low angles.
Professional Body Design
  • Magnesium alloy chassis assures rigidity, durability, and stability while remaining lightweight. The lens mount has also been improved to better support heavy lenses and the grip rigidity has been improved for more comfortable hand-holding.
  • Extensive weather-sealing, including enhanced sealing around the battery cover, terminal cover, and chassis joints, has been employed to resist dust and moisture for reliable operation in harsh weather conditions.
  • Using the same NP-FZ100 battery as its predecessor, the a7R IVA's battery life is rated for approximately 530 shots per charge with the EVF or 660 shots with the rear LCD.
  • Dual SD memory card slots allow for flexible file saving and handling and can be configured to partition raw and JPEG files or can be used for overflow recording. Both of the card slots are rated to support UHS-II memory cards for faster transfer speeds.
Ports and Interface
  • USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port has been added, in addition to a micro-USB port, for faster, more reliable tethering support. The USB Type-C connection allows the camera to be charged from the host power source while connected.
  • Updated Multi Interface Shoe supports working with the optional ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adapter Kit, which provide improved, clear audio recording sound by sending a digital audio signal to the camera, opposed to an analog signal.
  • Both 3.5mm headphone and external microphone ports facilitate greater control over audio recording.
  • HDMI micro (Type D) connector offers a clean signal out for working with optional external recorders.
  • Integrated PC sync terminal for wired flash sync with strobe packs or wireless radio remotes.
Wireless Connectivity
  • Built-in Wi-Fi enables the remote camera control and instant sharing of imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing online, and support for both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands also enables wireless tethered shooting support. This connectivity also provides remote camera control.
  • Use of the Imaging Edge mobile app is benefitted by Bluetooth to maintain a reliable connection between the camera and mobile device.
  • Bluetooth connectivity also allows for location data acquisition.
5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization
Packed into the robust a7R IVA is a 5.5-stop effective 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for five different types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of stills and video. This allows users to confidently use any lens, even adapted lenses, for critical imaging without encountering blur from camera shake.

For long focal lengths, the system will correct for pitch and yaw adjustments. Macro and high-magnification imagery, on the other hand, will benefit from the inclusion of horizontal and vertical shift compensation. All shooting styles will get usage out of the roll compensation. All 5 axes of stabilization will function at all times, even when used with third-party lenses and adapters or lenses with built-in optical stabilization.
Dedicated Accessories from Sony
Complementing the camera body is a trio of accessories to increase battery life and enhance audio recording capabilities when shooting video. The VG-C4EM Vertical Grip is the dedicated battery grip, which accepts up to two more NP-FZ100 batteries for extended shooting times. Its ergonomic design also enhances handling when shooting in the vertical orientation.

For improved audio recording, and making use of the a7R IVA's updated Multi Interface Shoe and digital audio interface, there is the ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone, which delivers a digital audio stream directly to the camera for cleaner quality with low noise. For even more advanced audio control, there is also the XLR-K3M XLR Adapter Kit, which is a dual-channel digital XLR audio adapter for connecting external microphones to the camera while still benefitting from the digital audio interface.
Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM Lens
The Standard Zoom Refined
A fast, standard zoom favored for its versatility, the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM is a wide-angle to short telephoto lens featuring advanced G Master optics, a robust physical design, and a bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture. A go-to lens for a variety of shooting situations, the 24-70mm f/2.8 is a perfect choice for anything from landscape to sports to portraiture subjects.
Uncompromising Optical Design
  • As part of Sony's esteemed G Master series, this lens is designed to achieve notably high resolution and sharpness through the correction of a wide variety of spherical and chromatic aberrations.
  • Of the three aspherical elements incorporated in the lens design, one is an XA element with superior surface precision to effectively reduce astigmatism, field curvature, coma, and other monochromatic aberrations from imagery.
  • One extra-low dispersion element and one Super ED element are featured in the lens design and help to control chromatic aberrations and reduce color fringing for increased clarity and color fidelity.
  • Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture maintains consistent performance from wide-angle to telephoto focal length positions and also contributes to greater selective focus control.
  • A Nano AR Coating has been applied to reduce surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for increased contrast and color rendering in strong lighting conditions.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when employing selective focus techniques.
Fast Focusing and Reliable Performance
  • Direct Drive Super Sonic wave AF motor and internal focus mechanism provide quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance and also contribute to more natural, intuitive manual focus control.
  • A focus hold button and AF/MF switch are present on the lens barrel for intuitive tactile control and rapid access to select settings.
  • A dust- and moisture-sealed design better permits working in inclement conditions and rubberized control rings benefit handling in colder temperatures.

Far more noise than I expected

Date: 2022-08-29

I purchased this camera with the idea of getting more detail and clarity in my work. Unfortunately after a portrait session over the weekend I am finding that my photos have far more noise than one might expect. My max ISO was 6400 and I was shooting in a well lit studio, sans strobes. Needless to say I can't recommend this camera to anyone who prefers less noise at relatively sane ISOs.

Coming from a video background I wanted a high end camera for Proffesional photography without breaking the bank, and that could already tie in to my Sony Ecosystem. I was thinking of springing for the 5 knowing it has the newer menu system, 8K and some other notable upgrades but it's not what I actually needed. The a7R4 at 61 megapixels with two card slots USB-C connection right to the iPad using Capture, and the new Sony batteries was going to be enough and it hasn't disappointed.

Amazing camera - One thing to note

By Adam
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-09

The Sony a7R IVA is by far one of the most incredible cameras I've used. Lightening fast autofocus, incredibly sharp images, and fast and fun to use. I would give potential buyers one note/opinion that this is not a prosumer camera. If you're looking for a hobby photography camera, this one falls across the line to professional, in my opinion. To take advantage of all this camera can do, you really have to dive into shooting manually and adapting a lot of the internal settings. But if you're in the market for a new pro camera, I HIGHLY recommend the a7R IVA!

What is the best landscape lens for the A7RIV that can also be an all-arounder for travel?
Asked by: Lauren
If you're looking for a great lens to pair with your Sony A7RIVA that can be used for landscapes but also travel, the 24-70mm focal length would be a great place to start. 24mm is wide enough for landscapes without any type of distortions and a great focal length to have while traveling. Having the flexibility to zoom all the way to 70mm is also good for travel and you can still use it for particular landscapes.

I am wondering how the a7Riv will perform with a lens that is not a GMaster. I have the Z 55 F1.8, the Z 35 F2.8, the 90mm Macro F28, the 16-35 F4, and the 24-70 GMaster. Will all perform well, if not what are the issues ? Thanks
Asked by: Glenn
Just as those lenses will perform at different levels of quality on a 24MP sensor, they will perform at different levels on a 61MP sensor. There's no objective line that you can draw to say this lens will perform adequately and that lens won't--it's a subjective decision that each photographer needs to make. Better lenses will perform better, on 24MP or on 61MP.

Does the A7RIIII suffer on low light video performance sense it has 62m compared to the A7III 24m? Or is it pretty much the same? Is the dynamic range up to par as well?
Asked by: Joseph
Hi--the A7 III performs almost to the level of the low-light video king, the A7s II, so if low-light video is the most important aspect for you, the A7 III is probably the better option, although if you shoot in Super35, for instance, you will be getting images with 10MP with the A7 III, but 24MP with the A7R III. The A7R III has great low-light performance, but not quite at the level of the A7 III.
