Sony has recently released the latest flagship camera in their Alpha lineup: the a7R IV. It’s a full-frame mirrorless camera with a 61MP sensor. There’s in-camera sensor stabilization, an ISO range from 50 through 102400 (the native ISO range is 100 to 32000), and a 567-point phase-detection autofocus system. It takes two UHS-II SD cards and has a more moisture- and dust-resistant built than its predecessors.

I’ve posted a detailed hands-on review of the a7R IV separately. The objective here is to share a collection of images shot under different lighting conditions and with different settings to give a sense of how it performs in real-world shooting.

Most of these were shot in RAW (14-bit uncompressed). They were processed in Lightroom, but I haven’t applied any noise reduction or lens corrections.

  • 15-stop dynamic range, 14-bit uncompressed RAW, ISO 50 to 102,400
