<p>Sony unveiled the Alpha 7R IV (A7R IV) in summer 2019, less than two years after the <a title="Discover the Sony A7R III" href="https://www.mczdirect.com/gb/sony-alpha-7r-iii/-sony-a7r-iiia-body--9665.html"><strong>Sony Alpha 7R III (A7R III)</strong></a>, with a sensor capable of capturing 61 megapixels.</p> <p>Sony reigned supreme in the 24x36 sensor mirrorless camera market in 2018, outpacing its rivals for five years. Sony was able to stay number one in the photo market with its 24x36 sensor mirrorless camera. It was not difficult for the brand, alone in this sector. But it was in 2018 that the competition started to get restless.</p> <p>Nikon launched two 24x36 mirrorless, <a title="Discover the Nikon Z6" href="https://www.mczdirect.com/gb/nikon-z6/-nikon-z6-body-2-years-warranty--4463.html"><strong>Z6</strong></a> and <a title="Discover the Nikon Z7" href="https://www.mczdirect.com/gb/nikon-z7/-nikon-z7-body-2-years-warranty--4466.html"><strong>Z7</strong></a>, both with 45.7 Mpixels. The Lumix S1 and S1R are the latest additions to the Panasonic lineup, each with a 47.3 Mpixel sensor. Canon has introduced an <a title="Discover the Canon EOS R" href="https://www.mczdirect.com/gb/canon-eos-r/-canon-eos-r-body-2-years-warranty--4715.html"><strong>EOS R</strong></a> that is technically lighter, but still has a 30 Mpixel sensor, albeit a modest one. Sony finds itself out of the race for the highest definition and had to react.</p> <p>The previous Alpha 7R III (A7R III) was already very mature. In addition to a high degree of definition, the incorporated technologies associated with an outstanding customization made it a reference. The body of the Alpha 7R IV (A7R IV) is renewed by small changes from Sony, which continues to evolve.</p> <p>We find a 24x36 sensor with a resolution of 61 Mpx, but it takes the medium format to get more. For example, the FujiFilm GFX 100 is an option for even <strong>better image quality</strong>. The high resolution mode, which previously offered 120MP, has been upgraded to 240 Mixels.</p> <p>The A9 processor is used again, with extra power to spare for swallowing pixels. Artificial intelligence is gaining traction in many applications, including photo and video for people and animals.</p> <p>In addition, the ergonomics have been tweaked somewhat with a larger handle and SD card ports that are both UHS-II compatible.</p> <p>In short, the copy doesn't revolutionize anything; rather, it fixes or improves a number of things that, taken together, don't seem unimportant. With almost 40% more pixels, all this is possible.</p> <p>The Sony Alpha 7 r4 is already available for sale, and at the time of publishing this description it is sold for 3,990 euros.</p> <p>With the A version of the Sony A7R IV, the Sony A7R line of cameras continues to offer optimal still image and video performance, thanks to the addition or upgrade of features such as a 61MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor and an improved BIONZ X image processor.</p> <p>The fourth edition has been further enhanced with these and other advances that deliver impressive imaging results marked by smoothness, 15-stop dynamic range and speed.</p> <p>Sony's latest A7 series camera is a technological marvel. Capable of shooting 10 frames per second, with the ability to record 4K30 UHD video at 60 and 120 frames per second respectively, this sensor has it all.</p> <p>Not only does its high definition allow for improved image quality, but it also allows for flexible native sensitivity ranges from ISO 100 to ISO 3,000 to satisfy any need, whatever it may be - whether you're looking for full daylight shots or low-light captures that are capable enough on even dimmer lights like night scenes where they also excel.</p> <p>The all-new Sony A7R IVA camera is a true technical achievement. By retaining the 5-axis SteadyShot inside image stabilization with sensor displacement, this model can minimize shake up to five stops!</p> <p>Sony's latest A7R camera is a serious contender for the title of the <strong>world's best autofocus</strong> SLR. Image quality, durability and ease of use have all been improved with this model over its predecessor.</p> <p>Not only does it feature an updated physical design, but it also offers a 576,000-dot screen compared to last year's 441,000-dot screen, making viewing your photos easier than ever.</p> <p>The Sony A7R IVA is a <strong>high-end camera</strong> with two SD card slots, both UHS-II for faster performance, and the inclusion of a USB Type-C port allows for data transfer.</p> <p>Built-in Bluetooth wireless transfer allows you to transfer images from your phone or tablet without any cables! In addition, the 2 4Ghz WiFI bands allow remote control of connected mobile devices and offer fast data rates for direct web upload of photos. <img src="https://www.mczdirect.com/img/cms/Sony%20A7R%20IV/sony-a-7r-IV-exemple-photo.jpg" alt="Sony a7R IV photo example" width="900" height="600" /></p> <p> </p> <h2 class="p1">SONY ALPHA 7R4 MIRRORLESS CAMERA IMPROVEMENTS</h2> <p>The Sony Alpha 7R IVA is a camera that has undergone significant improvements.

Sony ALPHA 7R IV + SEL FE 28-70 mm f/3,5-5,6 OSS-1

Sony Alpha 7R IV + SEL FE 28-70 mm...


The latest generation of digital cameras, mirrorless are designed for those who are looking for a quality close to that of SLRs in compact bodies.

The least we can say is that mirrorless cameras have been taking the limelight in recent years.

Halfway between compacts and SLRs, mirrorless combine the advantages of each technology. Thanks to their compact camera-based body, they generally have a smaller footprint and lighter weight. But, like SLRs, they allow you to change lenses and, above all, integrate high-end components capable of offering a beautiful image quality. The images are generally sharp and bright, and the performance of most mirrorless doesn't have to be as bad as that of some DSLRs.


Most mirrorless incorporate fairly large sensors, which are better able to provide sharp and bright images than compact ones, especially when light conditions are not favorable. However, there are differences depending on the model. The 4/3 micro sensor (22mm diagonal) used in the Olympus and Panasonic mirrorless is smaller than the one (APS-C, 27-28mm diagonal) used by other brands and allows the design of more compact cameras and lenses. Some mirrorless incorporate an even smaller sensor, such as a 1-inch (16mm diagonal) or even 1/1.7" (9mm diagonal) sensor. On the other hand, there are also full-size hybrids (43 mm diagonal). It is therefore essential to check the size of the sensor. Unfortunately, this information is not always provided by the manufacturers.


Most mirrorless are all about video, whether it's HD or ultra-high definition (UHD, 4K or 8K). In fact, our lab tests show that their video performance is second to none, at least in good lighting conditions. In low light, some mirrorless may experience a little more difficulty.


The larger the screen, the easier it is to shoot and the more pleasant it is to navigate through the menus and view the photos taken. But beyond its size, we must also take into account its resolution, contrast and ability to limit the appearance of reflections. In addition, prefer it multidirectional, vertically and horizontally. This will make framing easier and you will be able to multiply the original viewing angles. Finally, a touch screen will facilitate menu navigation and allow you to scroll through the photos with a simple swipe of your finger, just like on a smartphone.


Some mirrorless are equipped with an electronic viewfinder that allows you to have a fairly accurate idea of the result before you even take the picture. In addition, manufacturers have improved the definition and limited the effect of latency that made it difficult to frame moving subjects. However, the electronic viewfinder remains less precise than the optical viewfinder found on reflex cameras. Moreover, some mirrorless prefer to do without it or offer it as an option (180 € at Sony, 200 € at Panasonic for example).


NFC, Wi-Fi, more rarely Bluetooth... mirrorless are hyper connected. Thanks to these wireless connection protocols, you can usually send your photos by email or on social networks directly from the device or connect it to your smartphone to change settings or launch the shutter from an app. However, be careful because not all connected cameras offer the same possibilities or the same ergonomics.


While the mirrorless cameras all have powerful automatic modes, they also provide easy access to a large number of manual settings. Most mirrorless cameras also offer other features that are more or less useful, including numerous scene modes and creative effects. Choose according to your real needs.


Fixed, telephoto, wide-angle lenses... all manufacturers now offer a wide range of lenses. They have even developed motorized zooms, integrated optical stabilizations, designed particularly bright optics... In addition, like cameras, lenses for mirrorless are often more compact and lighter than those of dslr cameras. If you already own dslr lenses, it may be wise to acquire a ring that allows you to mount old lenses on the new frames. However, these accessories are expensive and don't always allow you to keep all the features (autofocus or zoom motorization, for example, are sometimes unavailable). Above all, the lenses of SLRs are much bulkier and heavier than those of mirrorless, so the whole is disproportionate. This solution can therefore only be temporary.
