Two Years With the Sony a7R IV: Is It the Camera for You?

The Sony a7R IV has the highest resolution of any full frame camera ever, combined with a range of advanced features and capabilities, making it an intriguing option for landscape, portrait, and architectural photographers or anyone looking for a ton of detail in their images. If you have been considering the camera for your own work, check out this great video review that takes a look at how it holds up after a few years of usage. 

Coming to you from Dan Watson, this excellent video review takes a look at the Sony a7R IV. The Sony a7R IV is quite the capable camera, offering an incredible 61 megapixels of resolution paired with a decently fast burst rate of 10 fps and the same autofocus system as the a9, making it a highly versatile camera, almost like a baby version of the flagship a1. In addition, it comes with an improved, more ergonomic grip (compared to the previous model), better weather-sealing, and more. That combination of weather-sealing, good autofocus, high resolution, and a fast burst rate make it especially appealing for wildlife photographers, making it easy to catch the shot with lots of room to crop in post. Check out the video above for Watson's full thoughts after two years with the camera.

af is really bad when the light goes down kinda like sunset. a9 is still tops for me in af. a1 is also less certain in low light. i have all three and a9 is just a solid machine even though a1/a7riv have better shutter mechanism with flash etc. and better grips.

He seems to have missed that the A7Siii is for better video.
