DPRTV: Sony a7RV Review – A Great Stills Camera Gets Better

DPRTV just posted its review, which you can watch above or read the summary of below:

  • Better experience than with other cameras
  • Updated EVF and IBIS are great
  • Controls are useable
  • Customizable color for focus box
  • Great articulating screen that can do everything
  • Most of the updated land well
  • Great AF that makes the camera a joy to use
  • Sony a7RIV is also a great option, but the updates make the a7RV a worthy upgrade
  • The image quality is great, just like the a7RIV
  • The sensor read-out speed could be better
  • Multishop mode motion correction is great to have to freeze moving subjects
  • Dust is still an issue on Sony bodies
  • You can now set the shutter to close when the lens is off, which helps with the dust
  • AF is excellent even for sports and action photography
  • Human recognition works well to keep on the subject you intended
  • Sony AF just keeps getting better, even with multiple subjects
  • Sony really only competes with Sony at this point since no one is close
  • Lots of video options that are useful, but the rolling shutter is very bad, so there is no idea record mode
  • Subsampled modes are the only somewhat acceptable way to deal with rolling shutter
  • Best video AF from a Sony camera so far, but not perfect
  • Video is compromised compared to other cameras
  • It’s a shame the video ends with all the negatives about video, because this is a great stills camera
