Sony Electronics has finally announced the launch of 61 MP Sony A7R IV Mirrorless camera. The camera is set to go on sale in September in the US market. It was a highly-anticipated camera and announced quite unexpectedly to the surprise of many tech enthusiasts.
Sony has certainly given their best with this camera. A whopping 40% increase in the resolution of the camera is really saying something! But the increase in pixel density can make the dynamic range and high ISO performance can suffer. However, Sony claims 15 stops of dynamic range and excellent high ISO performance for their new high-res sensor. Not only this, Sony claims 10 frames per second and burst of up to 68 images at full resolution. Now, you can have it all and have it very soon, it seems.
Some camera enthusiasts may claim, the 24 MP provides a balance between adequate resolution together with manageable file size. However, Sony lovers are gravitating towards the higher resolution options for maximum print quality or aggressive cropping in post-production. It seems to me, this camera is a viable option which is a portable package that includes a larger range of lenses and vastly superior AF performance i.e. compared to Medium format options.
