Sony A7R IV hands-on review: 61 glorious megapixels

 

That statement is pretty incredible when you recall people jumped up-and-down over the 42MP A7R II just a few years ago. Yet here we are in 2019 and the numbers keep soaring into the stratosphere. Not that we're complaining, mind you — especially since...

61MP full-frame sensor 240MP pixel-shift mode 10 fps continuous shooting 4K video in full-width and crop modes Real-Time autofocus

Benefits of 61MP may be limited Sony menus remain problematic

Sony a7R IV

 

The full-frame mirrorless Sony a7R IV outshines its high-resolution competition with an outstanding autofocus system and a superlative image sensor, delivering class-leading performance.

60.2MP full-frame imaging. 10fps Raw capture. Real-Time Tracking autofocus. 5-axis image stabilization. Big, crisp EVF. Tilting touch LCD. Dual UHS-II slots.

Lower-pixel cameras are better for video. Phase detection doesn't extend to edge of frame. Big file sizes.

Bottom Line: The full-frame mirrorless Sony a7R IV outshines its high-resolution competition with an outstanding autofocus system and a superlative image sensor, delivering class-leading performance.

Sony a7R IV Review

 

The Sony a7R IV ($3,499.99, body only) is the follow-up to the popular a7R III. It takes the same concept—a full-frame mirrorless camera built for high-resolution capture—to the next level. Where the previous two entries in the series shared the same...

Sony A7R IV Review

 

The Sony A7R IV is a thoroughly impressive camera. Its high-res 61MP sensor captures images with incredible detail.

Outstanding image quality; Excellent high ISOs; Fast AF performance with Eye-AF tracking; 10fps bursts at full-resolution; Improved ergonomics; Dual UHS-II card slots; Higher-res EVF.

Sony A7R IV review

 

The 61 megapixel Sony A7R IV is remarkable as a technical achievement, but as a camera its handling is starting to grate

World record resolution! ; Better handling than the Mark III ; Eye-tracking AF ; 10fps shooting

No 60/50p video ; Small body/big lens imbalance ; Ageing design and handling

The Sony A7R IV’s design tweaks make it handle better than the A7R III before it (though it can still be tiresome), and the resolution puts it well ahead of all its full frame mirrorless rivals for megapixels. And yet… while Sony’s hybrid AF system...
