10-bit HEIF3 still-image format for smooth gradations

Along with conventional RAW and JPEG, you can choose the HEIF (High Efficiency Image File) format for still-image capture. Smooth 10-bit color depth provides realistic reproduction of skies and portrait subjects where subtle, natural gradation is essential.

Up to 5.5-step4  shutter-speed compensation from the in-body stabilisation unit

The α7 IV’s high-precision stabilization unit and gyro sensors work together with image-stabilization algorithms to achieve up to 5.5 steps3 of shutter-speed compensation, to maximize the high-resolution performance of the camera’s 33.0‑MP1 image sensor.

Sony’s flash units coordinate with the camera’s face-detection system

Sony’s latest flash units communicate fully with the α7 IV, leveraging its powerful face detection capabilities to adjust exposure to produce natural-looking skin tones5. Precise white balance synchronisation and P-TTL metering, at up to the ‘Hi’ level of continuous-burst speeds, reliably expose even fast-moving subjects with quick lighting changes, for unmatched dependability and creative possibilities.

External control of flash units

For greater convenience during shoots, compatible flash and radio wireless commander units connected to the α7 IV can now be controlled directly from the camera interface.

Reliable autofocus, impressive speed

Fast Hybrid AF, evolved

The Fast Hybrid AF system, combining phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF, has evolved even further to achieve greater speed, accuracy, and tracking performance. With Sony’s 4D FOCUS, a wide, dense AF area covers roughly 94% of the image area for both stills and movies with 7591 phase-detection AF points.

10-frames-per-second2 continuous shooting with fast buffer release

Both the mechanical and electronic shutters allow you to shoot more than 800 frames 3& at up to 10 fps2 with AF/AE tracking, thanks to the α7 IV’s high-capacity buffer memory, speedy BIONZ XR processor, and improved memory card writing speed.

Sony’s smart AI-based Real-time Tracking4 and Real-time Eye AF

Sony’s unique subject recognition algorithm uses color, pattern (brightness), and subject distance (depth) data to rapidly process spatial information in real time. AI is used to detect and track the eyes and face of the subject (human, animal, or bird) with extremely high precision. Just select the subject to track, then leave it to the camera.

Improved Real-time Eye AF

Keeping the targeted eye in focus so you can concentrate on composition

The high speed of the latest image-processing engine provides a significant boost to Real-time Eye AF performance, even when the subject is looking up, down, or sideways. It is also possible to use Touch Tracking to initiate Real-time Tracking of any subject in the frame, simultaneously initiating Real-time Eye AF if an eye is detected, simply by touching the screen.

Pet photos made easy

Fast, accurate focus for difficult animal shots5

By setting the camera’s subject detection type to “Animal” in advance, you can automatically detect and track an animal’s eyes4, for greater success in both wildlife shots and photos and movies of your pets at home. Animal-eye detection has been improved, with reliable tracking and accurate focus even when the animal’s face is upside down.

Real-time Eye AF for birds5

Bird-eye detection supported for both still shots and movies

For the first time in the α series, bird-eye detection is available in movies as well as still shots – simply preset the subject to “bird”. The camera’s astonishing speed and precision allow automatic tracking of a specific bird5, whether it’s perched somewhere or in flight, keeping the eye in steady focus despite any fast and unpredictable movements.

Movie imagery, moving ever forward

4K 60p1 movies with smooth, natural-looking capture

It is now possible to record movies at up to 4K 60p1 with full pixel readout and without binning, taking advantage of the α7 IV’s brand-new image sensor and wide dynamic range for smooth images of fast-moving subjects.

All-Intra encoding supported in addition to Long GOP

All-Intra4 recording encodes every frame independently, at bitrates of up to 600Mbps5, capturing complex motion more accurately and allowing more efficient editing workflows.

Superior quality and smaller file sizes with XAVC HS6

The XAVC HS6 recording format uses HEVC/H.265 encoding to achieve twice the compression efficiency of AVC/H.264 encoding, for superior image quality and smaller, space-saving file sizes.

Choose your look, for more expressive movies

Support for S-Cinetone™, Creative Look and S-Log3

The S-Cinetone color matrix, based on technology acquired through development of CineAlta cameras such as the VENICE, produces an impressive look with beautiful skin tones without post-editing. The Creative Look presets create other interesting visual moods in-camera, or you can use S-Log3 gamma to access the camera’s full dynamic range (15+ stops7) for smoother post-production workflows.

New Breathing Compensation8

The α7 IV leverages our parallel lens and camera development to provide innovative Focus Breathing Compensation, exclusively for Sony’s E-mount lenses. By minimizing the field-of-view shift that can occur, during movie shooting, when you rack focus with some lenses, you can achieve impressive results—for new creative possibilities from a diverse range of Sony’s E-mount lenses.

Focus Map to visualize depth of field

Answering a request from professional creators, the brand-new Focus Map feature lets you easily visualize depth of field when you’re shooting9. In use, focus (depth map) information is overlaid on a display of the live view in real time, so you can easily see which areas are in or out of focus.

AF Assist10 supports focus transitions when using AF

Inherited from the Cinema Line FX6, the AF Assist function smoothly switches between auto and manual focus. Rack focusing is possible by rotating the focus ring to switch into MF and shift focus to a different subject, with AF resumed when ring rotation stops.

Focus fine-tuning for true creative freedom

Fine-tuned focus features, also used in higher-end models like the α1 and the α7S III, enable creative movie options like rack focus, quick switches of AF target, and highly customizable subject tracking sensitivity.

High-performance ‘Active Mode’ image stabilization

Reliable support for handheld movie shooting

Active Mode11 stabilisation for movie shooting is built on the camera’s highly accurate stabilisation unit, gyro sensors and sophisticated algorithms. It precisely detects the required amount of compensation and applies stabilisation, providing stable 4K movie shooting12 without compromising the α7 IV’s compact size and mobility.

Advantages of Sony’s lenses for video shooting

Learn the four unique advantages of using Sony’s E-mount lens for video shooting. The combination of Sony’s lenses and cameras will enhance your video creation experience.
