First Impressions: Sony a7R IV

Short Description:
When the original a7R was first launched, it was obvious the "R" stood for resolution. It had, at the time, a class-leading 36MP sensor.

Product Description


To say I was a bit surprised to learn that Sony's latest full-frame release was the a7R IV would be an understatement. There were plenty of other picks that I thought would be upgraded first (a7S III anyone?). Fortunately, this is no minor tweak, even though it may look like it on first glance. We are seeing a brand-new 61MP CMOS sensor, an updated physical design that signals it may be the fourth try that is charmed, and various other improvements that make this camera worth a look for many photographers.

Doubling Down on Resolution

When the original a7R was first launched, it was obvious the "R" stood for resolution. It had, at the time, a class-leading 36MP sensor. Keep in mind, this is back when Canon's flagship 5D Mark III was only boasting 22MP. Sony has nearly doubled that resolution in the relatively short time frame since that launch.


When using a tripod, the level of detail in your photos in absolutely insane.

61MP can be overkill—stick with the a7 III if you need something more well-rounded. For photographers who can make use of the extra pixels, it is invaluable. We are talking studio or landscape and architectural photographers. The extra resolution isn't a negative in these situations, generally with good lighting and a tripod, and can come in handy when working on the images in post-production. It is still fun to snap a photo and then just keep on clicking that magnifier just to see how close in you can get before the image becomes pixelated.
