Sony SKU: ILCE7RM4/B | Helix SKU: SYILCE7RM4B

Unimagined subtlety

61.0-megapixel1 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.

Reaching the peak of resolution: 61.0 MP12 full-frame CMOS sensor

Sony’s newly developed 35 mm full-frame back-illuminated CMOS sensor with 61.0 megapixels12enables the full-frame mirrorless α7R IV to attain expressive prowess once expected only in conventional medium-format cameras. Thanks to this mirrorless design, absence of mechanical mirror shock can maximize resolution without negative effect on image quality. The α7R IV realizes the level of image quality that surpasses the expectation for conventional full-frame cameras especially in the low- to mid-sensitivity range. Sony’s proprietary technology achieves superb high resolution while assuring low noise and high sensitivity.

The enhanced image processing engine makes the most of the CMOS sensor

To match the excellence of the new image sensor, the high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine is also further enhanced to faithfully reproduce details and reduce noise significantly. Noise that tends to occur due to heightened pixel count is minimized for high image quality, especially in the standard ISO sensitivity range up to ISO 32000. 13Wide 15-stop dynamic range14 at low ISO sensitivity (for stills) delivers smoother reproduction of gradations from shadow to highlight. Moreover, the α7R IV’s inherited color reproduction in still pictures — acclaimed in the latest α series — captures skin color in portraits and vivid color of flowers for natural α7R IV depiction.

Features maximizing superb 61.0 MP12resolution

The α7R IV’s extremely high image 61.0-megapixel resolution performance is maximized by other α7R IV advantages, one of which is 5-axis optical in-body image stabilization with optimized algorithms to achieve up to a 5.5-stop15 shutter speed advantage. Another outstanding feature is the electronic shutter allowing silent, vibration-free shooting. Additionally, the α7R IV incorporates an internal damper structure to absorb the impact of shutter motion for minimum shutter vibration. Many features in the α7R IV serve for realizing sharply resolved imaging.

Wide, fast, and steadfast AF evolution

Thanks to increased coverage and density of AF points and enhanced algorithm for tracking moving subjects, overall AF performance has evolved to provide steadfast, accurate tracking of complex subject motion and speed changes. The α7R IV’s Fast Hybrid AF system combines high-speed, highly trackable phase-detection and high-precision contrast-detection autofocusing, even for shooting venues as dimly lit as EV-319. 567-point phase-detection AF and 425-point contrast-detection AF provide wider image area coverage20of 99.7% height and 74.0% width. In addition, this remarkable AF system provides as rapid a response as α7R III, despite mass data handling due to the extremely high-resolution CMOS sensor, even in dim shooting venues.

Exceptional high-speed 10fps burst shooting with AF/AE tracking

Despite a high resolution of 61.0 MP12, an ingenious algorithm enables efficient processing for high-speed continuous shooting of up to 10fps21 with AF/AE tracking through a mechanical shutter. It is also possible to shoot continuously at up to 8fps in live-view mode, with minimal display time lag for capturing fast-moving subjects. After a full-frame image is cropped down to APS-C size or if APS-C shooting mode is chosen, you can still get 26.2 MP high-resolution images. This is a great advantage for wild animal photographers who rely on cropping after capturing images of quickly moving animals/birds from afar.

Up to 68 images in continuous shooting

Professional photographers need to achieve consistent shooting without interruption. With 1.5x greater buffer memory, system speed, and UHS-II support, the α7R IV can capture up to approx. 68 images22 in a continuous burst at 10fps23. With APS-C shooting mode, approximately three times more photos can be shot than with full-frame shooting mode. Fn menu/menu display access, setting changes, and review playback can occur during data writing. A countdown of the number of still images remaining to be written to memory is on display during playback.

Anti-flicker shooting 24

Flicker from fluorescent and other artificial lighting is automatically detected and shutter action is timed to minimize the effect of flicker on still images. This suppresses exposure and color anomalies at the top and bottom of images shot at high shutter speeds, as well as exposure and color inconsistency between continuous shots, so you can take images indoors with more confidence.

Dual media slots, both supporting UHS-II

The α7R IV provides two media slots for SD cards, both SLOT 1 and SLOT 2 are now compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II for fast mass-volume data writing. Two cards in the slots can be used to simultaneously record or relay record data, separate RAW data from JPEG data, or stills from movies, and copy data from one card to the other. A slide lock structure prevents the memory card cover from being opened unintentionally.

Enhanced Real-time Eye AF (human eye) delivers more successful portraiture

Real-time Eye AF works in tandem with Real-time Tracking technology, based on the latest evolutionary advances in artificial intelligence, for highly efficient portrait shooting. This progressive system detects and processes face and eye data in real time, and stays locked onto the eye of the subject with unprecedented precision. When "Face/Eye Priority in AF" is ON, Eye AF (AF-C/AF-S/AF-A mode) can be activated not only through a custom key assignment, but also by half-pressing the shutter button or pressing the AF-ON button. This function now allows you to choose a particular eye — left or right, in advance or during shooting. Real-time Eye AF supports movie shooting in addition to stills.

Real-time Tracking holds the focus on tracked subjects

With this technology, accurate focus is maintained automatically while the shutter button is half-pressed. You can select a subject as you intend, rely on the α7R IV, and concentrate on your composition since the camera takes care of subject tracking. A newly adopted Real-time Tracking algorithm uses color, pattern (brightness), and subject distance (depth) data to process spatial information while AI technology detects a subject’s face and eye in real time. Available for both stills and movies.

Focal-plane phase-detection AF supports A-mount lenses27

Phase-detection AF can operate even when an A-mount lens is attached to the α7R IV via an LA-EA3 Mount Adaptor. The 567-point focal-plane phase-detection AF system provides wide-area coverage, fast response, and high-performance tracking even if an A-mount lens is attached.
