DPRTV: Sony a7RIV Review – The Best Full-Frame Camera on The Market

Sony a7R cameras have become the reasonably priced resolution monsters of the industry since the camera launched, with a continuously improving feature set that now rivals even the Sony a9. Below is a summary of what the above video covers:

  • 1/250th eye detect
  • You can trust the camera to AF correctly on the best point available
  • Had trouble with eye detect in a high contrast lighting situation, but still grabbed the face correctly
  • Minimal blackout
  • Can do 10fps at lower bit rate with minimal compression and 6fps with full bit rate for 30 shots
  • Recovers 5 stops without a problem
  • The EVF is good enough that you just get used to it
  • The photographer in the video doesn’t like the feel of the camera but likes the results
  • The guest says that if Sony had the a7RIV in a full-size body he would buy it today and dump DSLR
  • Can get 240MP with 16 shots, but it can’t handle anything moving and must be post-processed
  • a7RIV does low light well
  • +4EV shadow boost without an issue and has similar noise to shooting 6400ISO in the first place
  • Super 35mm has the best video image quality, but the crop can be an issue for wide video
  • This camera can be used for almost anything including sports/wildlife, but the fps might be a little low for the application
  • Would be great to get smaller RAW files
  • From a technical perspective this is the best full-frame camera on the market
