33 MP full-frame back-illuminated CMOS image sensor
Delivering excellent performance and image quality for photos and videos, the α7 IV's new 33MP Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor offers high-speed readout, high sensitivity, low noise, and highly accurate color reproduction.
BIONZ XR imager photo
The α7 IV's latest image processor offers increased performance, with improved image quality and color reproduction. Fast processing speeds allow for convenient continuous capture and reliable data transfer performance.
Ten Creative Looks for Quick Visual Style Adjustment
Ten presets and eight Creative Look parameters let you quickly create a look for your photos, videos, and live streams. And since no post-editing is required, you can share your vision right after shooting.
HEIF 10-bit photo format for smooth gradations
In addition to the conventional RAW and JPEG formats, you can choose HEIF (High Efficiency Image File) for photos. 10-bit color depth reproduces skies and subjects in realistic portraits where subtle, natural gradation is essential.
5-axis optical image stabilization
The α7 IV's high-precision stabilization unit and gyro sensors work with stabilization algorithms to achieve 5.5 steps4 of shutter speed compensation, maximizing the 33.0 MP sensor's high resolution.
Enhanced Fast Hybrid Autofocus
The Fast Hybrid AF system, with contrast and phase detection AF, has been developed to improve speed, accuracy and tracking. With 4D FOCUS ofSony, a wide, dense AF area covers approximately 94% of the image in stills and movies, with 7,597 phase-detection AF points.
10fps continuous capture with fast buffer release
Mechanical and electronic shutters capture over 800 frames9 at up to 10fps8 with AF/AE tracking, thanks to the α7 IV's large buffer memory, BIONZ XR processor and faster card write speed.
AI-based real-time tracking ofSony
The subject recognition algorithm ofSonyuses color, pattern (brightness), and distance (depth) data to quickly process spatial information in real time. The AI detects and follows the eyes and face of the subject (human, animal or bird) with extreme precision. You just have to select the subject and the camera does the rest.
Enhanced real-time Eye AF
The latest high-speed image processor improves Eye AF performance in real time, even if the subject is looking up, down or to the side. Touch Tracking can also be used to initiate real-time tracking of the subject in the frame, launching Eye AF in real time if an eye is detected, just by touching the screen.
Fast and accurate focus for complex animal shots
By setting the subject detection of the camera to "Animal", it is possible to automatically detect and track the eyes of an animal10, allowing you to achieve sensational images and videos of nature and pets. This improved system offers reliable tracking and precise focus even when the animal's face is upside down.
Real-time Eye AF system for birds
For the first time in the α series, the bird's eye detection system can be used for both stills and videos. Simply select the preset for "birds". The amazing speed and precision of the camera allow it to automatically maintain focus on a specific bird11, whether it is perched or in flight, no matter how fast it moves.
4K 60p movies with a natural finish
Thanks to the α7 IV's new image sensor and its wide dynamic range, it is now possible to record smooth, dynamic scenes in 4K 60p with full pixel readout and no pixel binning.
7K oversampling for detailed and compelling images
When shooting 4K movies up to 30p, full-frame 7K upsampling is possible, ensuring highly detailed 4K. Select the appropriate mode and let the camera take care of everything else.
S-Cinetone™, Creative Look and S-Log3 support
The S-Cinetone color matrix, whose design is based on technology gained through the development of CineAlta cameras such as the VENICE, provides an attractive skin-toned finish without the need for post-editing. Creative Look presets offer different in-camera visuals, while S-Log3 gamma profiles give you access to the full dynamic range (15+ stops18).
New focal length compensation system
The α7 IV takes advantage of our best camera and lens technology to offer an innovative focal length shift compensation system only found in E-mount lenses.Sony. By reducing field of view shift during movie recording and selectively focusing with certain lenses, E-mount lenses fromSonyallow for incredibly creative results.
Focus map to visualize depth of field
As professional creators have asked for, the new focus map function allows you to easily visualize depth of field when shooting. In use, the focus information (depth map) is overlaid on a live view in real time, so you can easily see which areas are or are not in focus.
Instantly turn your α7 IV into a webcam
All you need is a USB connection to turn the full-frame α7 IV into a high-performance webcam. No complex setup required in advance, just connect the camera to a computer or smartphone via USB27, select "Live Stream (USB Streaming)"[transmisión por USB]) and ready.
Additional features with Imaging Edge Mobile™
Sharing and connectivity with Imaging Edge Mobile fromSonythey are even easier and more powerful. Quickly adjust your camera's Wi-Fi with Bluetooth® Low Energy and better control automatic image transfers.
Wireless LAN function is included, with 5 GHz band in addition to conventional 2.4 GHz (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards are supported). The advantages of 5 GHz communication include faster data transfer.
FTP file transfer in the background
This function allows you to transfer photo and video files to a remote FTP server via wireless LAN, high-speed wired LAN (with compatible USB-Ethernet adapter cable to the camera's USB Type-C® port), or USB-anchored smartphone.
