Sony a7R V


  • announced Oct 2022
  • new or upgraded features from the Sony a7R IV which better match the Canon R5 but adds in HiRes mode:
    • new AI processing
    • use of Sony's new much improved menu system with new interactive settings tab
    • Improved AF with subject recognition
      • gains a system designed to better recognize human subjects but also trained to recognize a wide range of non-human subject types
      • will now recognize Animals, Birds, combined Animal/Bird option, Insects, Cars & Trains and Aircraft
      • choice of whether the camera focuses on Eye/Head/Body, just Eye/Head or just Eyes, for humans, animals or birds
      • “60% better Eye-AF” and better at focusing on the surface of the eye, rather than occasional eye-lash-focus
    • Sensor-shift dust removal and close shutter with power off option
    • IBIS now 8EV up from 5.5EV
    • flash burst rate 10fps (lossy RAW) 7fps full RAW
    • 3.2“ / 2.1M-dot fully-articulated rear screen on tilt-out cradle instead of just tilting
    • 9.44M-dot 0.9x EVF up from 5.76M-dot 0.78x
    • Reduced-size down-sampled tonally lossless Raw files (26MP/15MP) and can re-convert the Raw files in-camera
    • first Sony to have a focus bracketing function built-in (with stacking via computer)
    • video:
      • 8K/24p or 4K/60p video (both with 1.24x crop) but with significant rolling shutter in 8K mode
      • Full-width 4K up to 30p
      • 10-bit 4:2:2 video options, including S-Log3, S-Cinetone and HLG
    • faster 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi
    • 2x faster USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps up from Gen 1's 5Gbps
    • UVC/UAC USB-standard video for use as webcam
    • same NP-FZ100 battery but less battery life
    • controls are more like the a7S III than a7R IV and now includes full-sized HDMI port
    • heavier at 723g up from 665g


  • 60MP BSI CMOS sensor - same as Sony a7R IV
  • Bionz XR processor
  • 10fps burst with AF
  • tripod-based sensor shift modes:
    • four-shot mode that captures red, green and blue information for every output pixel location, giving greater chroma resolution and avoiding the softening effects of demosaicing Bayer images
    • 240mp Hi-Res 16-shot mode that shoots four Bayer-cancelling quartets of images at slight offsets
  • two dual-format card slots that can accept either UHS-II SD cards or the small CFexpress Type A cards that only Sony currently uses
  • $US3899
