Basic has never been this goodPrepare to be inspired. The A7 IV's true-to-life resolution and remarkable AI-powered autofocus complement a range of world-class features at the cutting edge of imaging technology.

Flagship-quality still and movie imaging

Sony A7 IV Sony Exmor R CMOS full frame Sensor

Newly developed 33MP full-frame back-illuminated CMOS image sensorDelivering outstanding performance and excellent image quality in both stills and movies, the A7 IV's new 33.0 megapixel Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor provides high-speed readout, high sensitivity, low noise, and highly accurate colour reproduction.

Sony BIONZ XR Image processor chips on circuit board

Flagship-level image processing with BIONZ XRThe A7 IV uses the latest image processor to offer greatly enhanced performance, with improved image quality and colour reproduction. Fast processing speeds facilitate comfortable continuous shooting as well as responsive operation while performing data transfers.

Higher Resolution, Better Colour Reproduction

The new 33mp image sensor and processing engine raise the bar for image qualityIn addition to boasting a larger pixel count and higher resolution than A7 III, the A7 IV and its powerful Exmor R sensor represent a significant evolution of Sony’s original image technology, for improvements that go beyond mere numbers. Experience new levels of colour gradation and detail rendering as well as soft, natural-looking human skin textures.

Beautiful Images With Reduced NoiseBuilding on the capabilities of the back-illuminated image sensor, the BIONZ XR engine reveals even higher subjective resolution combined with exquisite detail and texture even in medium and high sensitivity ranges. Impressively low levels of noise are achieved throughout the standard range of ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 50-204800 for stills and ISO 100-102400 for movies).

Wide, 15-Stop Dynamic RangeTaking advantage of the camera’s full dynamic range of 15 stops, the A7 IV uses image data from the sensor’s 33 megapixels to render remarkably delicate detail in landscapes and scenery. This stunning image quality is based on Sony’s unrivalled experience at the front lines of both still-image and movie creation.

Still Photography Without Compromise

10-bit HEIF still-image format for smooth gradationsAlong with conventional RAW and JPEG, you can choose the HEIF (High Efficiency Image File) format for still-image capture. Smooth 10-bit colour depth provides realistic reproduction of skies and portrait subjects where subtle, natural gradation is essential.

5-Axis Optical Image Stabilisation

Up To 5.5-Step Shutter-Speed Compensation From The In-Body stabilisation unitThe A7 IV's high-precision stabilisation unit and gyro sensors work together with image-stabilisation algorithms to achieve up to 5.5 steps of shutter-speed compensation, to maximise the high-resolution performance of the camera's 33.0MP image sensor.

Sony's Latest Flash Units

Sony's flash units coordinate with the camera's face-detection systemSony's latest flash units communicate fully with the A7 IV, leveraging its powerful face detection capabilities to adjust exposure to produce natural-looking skin tones. Precise white balance synchronisation and P-TTL metering, at up to the ‘Hi’ level of continuous-burst speeds, reliably expose even fast-moving subjects with quick lighting changes, for unmatched dependability and creative possibilities.

External control of flash unitsFor greater convenience during shoots, compatible flash and radio wireless commander units connected to the A7 IV can now be controlled directly from the camera interface.

Reliable Autofocus, Impressive Speed

Fast Hybrid AF, evolvedThe Fast Hybrid AF system, combining phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF, has evolved even further to achieve greater speed, accuracy and tracking performance. With Sony's 4D FOCUS, a wide, dense AF area covers roughly 94% of the image area for both stills and movies with 7591 phase-detection AF points.

10-frame-per-second continuous shooting with fast buffer releaseBoth the mechanical and electronic shutters allow you to shoot more than 800 frames at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking, thanks to the A7 IV's high-capacity buffer memory, speedy BIONZ XR processor and improved memory-card writing speed.

Sony's Smart AI-Based Real-Time Tracking

subject recognition algorithmSony's unique subject recognition algorithm uses colour, pattern (brightness), and subject distance (depth) data to rapidly process spatial information in real time. AI is used to detect and track the eyes and face of the subject (human, animal or bird) with extremely high precision. Just select the subject to track, then leave it to the camera.

Improved Real-time Eye AF

Keeping the targeted eye in focus so you can concentrate on composition The high speed of the latest image processing engine provides a significant boost to Real-time Eye AF performance, even when the subject is looking up, down, or sideways. It is also possible to use Touch Tracking to initiate Real-time Tracking of any subject in the frame, simultaneously initiating Real-time Eye AF if an eye is detected, simply by touching the screen.

Pet Photos Made Easy

Fast, accurate focus for difficult animal shotsBy setting the camera's subject detection type to "Animal" in advance, you can automatically detect and track an animal's eyes, for greater success in both wildlife shots and photos and movies of your pets at home. Animal-eye detection has been improved, with reliable tracking and accurate focus even when the animal's face is upside down.

Real-Time Eye AF For Birds

Bird-eye detection supported for both still shots and moviesFor the first time in the α series, bird-eye detection is available in movies as well as still shots – simply preset the subject to "bird". The camera's astonishing speed and precision allow automatic tracking of a specific bird, whether it's perched somewhere or in flight, keeping the eye in steady focus despite any fast and unpredictable movements.

Movie Imagery, Moving Ever Forward

Focus Map to visualise depth of fieldAnswering a request from professional creators, the brand-new Focus Map feature lets you easily visualise depth of field when you're shooting. In use, focus (depth map) information is overlaid on a display of the live view in real time, so you can easily see which areas are in or out of focus.
