A Look at the Sony a7 IV Mirrorless Camera for Stills Photography

Sony's a7 IV, the long-anticipated successor to the highly popular a7 III, recently arrived, and it brought with it a range of new features and improvements over its already well-balanced and capable predecessor. This excellent video review takes a look at the new camera's stills photography capabilities and the sort of image quality and performance you can expect from it. 

Coming to you from Maarten Heilbron, this great video review takes a look at the Sony a7 IV mirrorless camera and its stills photography performance. While the a7 III was a perfectly capable stills camera, the new model improves in several ways:

  • 33-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor
  • Fully articulating rear touchscreen
  • Over 15 stops of dynamic range
  • In-body image stabilization with up to 5.5 stops of compensation
  • Better autofocus, including real-time object tracking and human and animal eye autofocus in both photos and video
  • New menu system
  • 828-shot buffer
  • 3.69-million-dot viewfinder

Altogether, the a7 IV looks like a worthy successor to the popular a7 III. Check out the video above for Heilbron's full thoughts.
