Prepare to be inspired. The Sony a7 IV's true-to-life resolution and remarkable AI-powered autofocus complement a range of world-class features at the cutting edge of imaging technology. Go beyond basic with 33-Megapixel full-frame sensor for outstanding still image and 4K movie quality
33MP high-resolution full-frame sensor
The full-frame 33MP Exmor R™ back-illuminated CMOS sensor delivers outstanding speed and superb image quality. The use of copper wiring contributes to higher transmission speeds and faster AD (analogue to digital) conversion, while fast sensor readout enables 10-bit 4:2:2 4K recording up to 60p. The sensor also provides improved color reproducibility, low-noise performance at all sensitivities, 15+stop3 dynamic range and increased AF (autofocus) speed and precision performance. Experience improved levels of color gradation and detail rendering as well as soft, natural-looking human skin textures.
BIONZ XR™ image processor for up to 8x processing speed
The BIONZ XR engine, also used in the Sony Alpha 1 and Alpha 7S III models, provides up to an 8x increase in processing speed. The engine concentrates real-time processing of AF (autofocus), image recognition and image quality adjustment to minimize processing latency for greatly increased movie and still processing power. User interface, network and file management processing is distributed to deliver fast response regardless of real-time processing load.
Wide, 15-stop dynamic range
Taking advantage of the camera's full dynamic range of 15 stops, the Alpha7 IV uses image data from the sensor's 33-megapixels to render remarkably delicate detail in landscapes and scenery. This stunning image quality is based on Sony's unrivaled experience at the front lines of both still-image and movie creation.
4K 60p recording, 4:2:2 10-bit recording
The Alpha 7 IV gives you an impressive range of video recording options. Full pixel readout without binning allows 4K 60p recording in Super 35 mode providing high-resolution smooth footage that can be edited to 2x and 2.5x slow-motion when rendered to 30p or 24p in post-production, and 4K 24p or 30p full pixel readout without binning in full-frame with 7K oversampling. For highly detailed and rich 4K content.
7K oversampling for beautifully expressive, richly detailed images
Thanks to the increased2 33MP resolution, the Alpha 7 IV oversamples 7K when recording full-frame 4K movies at up to 30p, resulting in high-resolution, highly detailed 4K for beautifully expressive, rich images. Select the mode that best suits your purpose, and let the camera deliver.
Sony's smart AI-based Real-time Tracking
The superior power of the BIONZ XR™ processing engine has led to improvements in both Real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking features. Improved face detection translates into 30% better eye-detection accuracy compared to Alpha 7 III. AI (Artificial Intelligence) is used to detect and track the eyes and face of the subject (human, animal or bird) with extremely high precision. Real-time Tracking allows you to select your subject and then leave tracking to the camera, relying on the latest subject recognition algorithm and high-speed analysis of spatial data by the processing engine.
Instantly turn your Alpha 7 IV into a live streaming web camera
All it takes is a USB connection to turn the full-frame Alpha 7 IV into a high-performance webcam. There's no need for complicated advanced setup; just connect the camera to a computer or smartphone via USB, select "Live Stream (USB Streaming)", and you're set. You can choose from four different output formats, including high-resolution 4K video and simultaneous internal recording is also available, giving you broad flexibility to cover a wide variety of needs.
5-axis optical image stabilization
The Alpha 7 IV's in-body image stabilization allows effective use with a wide range of lenses. The high-precision stabilization unit and gyro sensors work with stabilization algorithms to achieve up to 5.5 steps of shutter-speed compensation to maximize the performance of the camera's 33MP sensor. The live monitor view shows the stabilized still image while the shutter button is half-pressed, an especially helpful feature when using a telephoto or macro lens, and it can be used in conjunction with the MF (manual focus) Assist and Focus Magnifier features.
