Coming to you from Dan Watson, this excellent video review takes a look at the video performance of the new Sony a7 IV mirrorless camera. The a7 IV comes with a wide variety of useful features and performance improvements for filmmakers, including:
- Full width 4K 30p in 10-bit
- Super 35 4K 60p in 10-bit
- No recording time limit
- Improved heat dissipation for longer recording
- XAVC GS and XAVC S-I codecs
- Bitrates up to 600 Mb/s
- S-Cinetone for natural skin tones
- Hybrid Log-Gamma
