In an event that took place in New York, Sony unveiled its latest high-resolution mirrorless camera named Sony Alpha a7RIV. This is the world's first Full-frame sensor camera with 61MP resolution (raising the cable from 42MP of 2nd and 3rd generation), and the ability to take 10 images per second and 15 light-sensitive steps ( dynamic range).
This resolution is impressive, but users can also use sensor-shift capture feature to create even larger images, up to 240MP! In addition, this sensor also helps users can shoot in crop mode (APS-C 1.5x) but still has a resolution of 26MP, which is larger than its own APS-C models.
The focus system has also been upgraded, with 567 phase-focusing points, covering 74% of the image area. In APS-C mode, the number of focus points decreases to 325, but will cover the entire shooting area, allowing users to freely layout without worrying about slipping. The focus algorithm of a7RIV has been upgraded to get animal eye focus, integrating Real-Time Tracking like the Alpha A9 sports.
