Sony’s A7R IV Boasts of a 61-Megapixel Full-Frame Sensor

The highest-resolution 35mm full-frame camera to date

Sony updates its high-megapixel A7R III with an all-new sensor for the A7R IV. With the A7R IV, you get a 61-megapixel backside-illuminated full-frame sensor—the highest resolution ever for a backside-illuminated sensor.

To pair with that high-resolution sensor, Sony added an all-new electronic viewfinder that sports 5.76 million dots and supports 60FPS or 120FPS refresh rate.

If 61-megapixels is not enough, the A7R IV has Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode. This feature stacks 16 full-resolution images for a huge 963.2-megapixel image that is composited to a 240.8-megapixel image using Sony’s desktop application.

That 61-megapixel sensor can do a lot: you can shoot 10FPS at full resolution with continuous AF/AE tracking for up to 7 seconds and up to 21 seconds when shooting in 26.2-megapixel APS-C mode.

For the autofocusing, 567 phase-detection AF points along with 325 contrast AF points and eye-tracking AF for both photo and video. Speaking of video, the A7R IV can shoot 4K video with full-pixel readout in Super 35mm crop or pixel-binned using the whole sensor. You also get support for HLG, along with Sony’s S-Log 2 and S-Log 3 for your color grading needs—with up to 14 stops of dynamic range with S-Log 3.

Other notable features include a 5-axis in-body image stabilization, dual UHS-II memory slots, dual-band WiFi, USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 1, weather sealing, digital audio interface via the Multi-Interface Shoe, a more ergonomic grip, and a battery rated for up to 670 images on a single charge.

The A7R IV is priced at $3,500(~Php 178.9K) and will be available in the US starting September 2019.
