A Review of the Sony a7 IV Mirrorless Camera for Video Work

Sony's a7 III was one of the most respected hybrid cameras of recent years, and the a7 IV builds on the camera's well-rounded capabilities with a range of new features and improvements that make it an intriguing option for a lot of creatives. This excellent video review takes a look at the video capabilities of the new camera and how they perform in practice. 

Coming to you from Maarten Heilbron, this awesome video review takes a look at the Sony a7 IV mirrorless camera and the sort of video performance you can expect from it, along with its continuous burst performance. The a7 IV comes with a range of useful video features, including: 

  • No limit on recording time
  • Better heat dissipation for extended recording 
  • 4K 30p in 10-bit using the full width of the sensor
  • 4K 60p in 10-bit and Super 35
  • Bit rate up to 600 Mb/s
  • XAVC GS and XAVC S-I codecs
  • S-Log3 with over 15 stops of dynamic range
  • Hybrid Log-Gamma 
  • S-Cinetone for more natural skin tones 

The lack of 4K 60p in full frame has caused some criticism of the a7 IV, but beyond that, it looks like a capable option. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Heilbron.
