The Sony A7R mark IV inaugurates the fourth generation in the A7 series. It is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with a 61MP full frame sensor (a world’s first at that resolution).
The A7R IV has an advanced autofocus system with 567 phase detection points and 425 contrast detection areas, Real-Time Tracking, Eye AF for stills and video (works with animals too!). But that is not all: you will find 5-axis stabilisation, Pixel Shift Multi shooting with 240MP output, 4K video with advanced settings (including Log and HLG profiles), the highest resolution viewfinder seen on a Sony camera and a touch sensitive LCD screen.
