One may think that the 61Mpx are the star of the show, but I think they're not. This fourth iteration is a much well-rounded one, with better construction (accoridng to teardowns), better handling, better ergnonics, stunning AF (better than an a7 III with f/w 3.x.x, which was no slouch!), better EVF (with fast refresh rate or high resolution options), dual USH-II slots, very silent mechanical shutter, decent video capabilities (for a high resolution body), decent burst, etc. It's not just a ...

I bought this in Oct 2019, and in less than 2 weeks, I use this as the replacement for my A7R2 for a 21days Autumn trip to Japan. I hardly had time to explore most of the features and to do a proper setup of the buttons and my favorite "My Menu" settings. As such, I stick only to my usual mode of Aperture Priority, Manual Focusing with peaking, white light balance, ISO and EV for most of my shoots. Not surprising I was able to handle my A7R4, based on my A7R2 past experiences, and I am very ...

Shooting with this camera at high resolution is a pleasure. You can shot at high and cut the frame to choose the best part of the picture in the post processing without loosing a good size for prints. This camera has an impressive detail when using the right lenses. It is not perfect but is a very impressive and light camera. The screen on the back is still too small for my taste but using an external one you can manage all with better precision.

No camera is perfect, it can be preferred by some and at the same time dislike by some, like all things in life. So this is a short review of SONY A7R IV by the way I want to use it, and I have no interest to test it against another camera because of all tests made under certain criteria and the result always subjective, and kind of waste time. My take on camera is that particular one (A7R IV) which is an upgraded model of the one I use very often (A7R III). In short, the SONY A7R IV keeps ...

This camera is so close to having everything it needs to be on the cutting edge, but instead they're cutting corners. The EVF is super high res and amazing to use, but the rear screen is worse than the D850 which came out over 2 years ago, not to mention it's sad touch screen capacity. However, despite those shortcomings, the rest of the camera is incredible to use with it's dynamic range and extreme resolution. One of the features I've used most to my surprise is switching back and forth ...

Next time Sony, make it much easier to use in manual mode, you can ditch all video functions or you can make video function so you can lock or unlock all videofuntions. The dial that are default for shuttertime should be a bit larger and easier to use, the joystick should also be a bit larger and easy to use - speacially to move the point og focus. You can ditch the dial for compensation or change it to a dial for shutterspeed ! And of course you need to make a much more easier interaction in ...
