Sony has launched the new Alpha 7 IV interchangeable lens camera in India. This camera comes with the new 33MP full-frame image sensor, and it is joined by the new flash, HVL-F60RM2. Here’s a look at all the details.
Sony Alpha 7 IV: Specs and Features
Sony Alpha 7 IV comes with the flagship-grade BIONZ XR image processing engine for improved picture quality as compared to the predecessor camera, Alpha 7 III. There’s also support for advanced autofocus capabilities, which support real-time tracking (can track birds and animals’ eyes) and is 30% improved than the predecessor camera.
There’s support for 33MP resolution to change the meaning of what a “basic” camera can do. The 33MP full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor allows for better details and lesser noise.
Amongst the various features it has, there’s the S-Cinetone-backed 4K video recording for a rich and cinematic look to the videos. There’s support for 4K at 60fps and 4K at 30fps with 7K oversampling in full-frame mode. The camera also has a 10-bit depth 4:2:2 color sampling for natural gradation.
Sony Alpha 7 IV is a hybrid still and video camera and can easily allow users to switch between these two modes. It also has 5-axis optical in-body image stabilization, a new heat dissipation system to keep it cool during long video-recording sessions, and allows for easy connectivity with a smartphone, thanks to the Imaging Edge Mobile app.
Additional Sony Alpha 7 IV features include XAVC S-I intra-frame encoding for more efficient editing workflows, XAVC HS for doubled compression efficiency, Shot Mark to access marked scenes in a video, live-streaming support, remote access, and more.
Plus, the new Sony HVL-F60RM2 flash comes with GN 60 and 20-200mm 10 coverage and is meant to “offer precise control, enhanced high-speed and intuitive operability.” It has upgraded flash shooting performance by 200 times at 10fps. It also supports an optimized algorithm to make it overheat-resistant. The flash release time lag has also decreased to enable the users to capture momentary facial expressions and movements.
