Do you want to buy a mirrorless camera in 2021? Sony is expected to launch a new camera called Sony A7iv on October 21. It will arrive as a successor to the Sony A7iii, and it will probably be the most anticipated mirrorless camera of 2021.
It has been more than three years since the release of its predecessor Sony A7iii. It was able to set a new standard in the camera industry as it arrived as a mirrorless camera.
Sony A7iv Price
It is expected that the upcoming Sony A7iv will be priced at $2499 in the US. This would be up from the predecessor Sony A7iii’s $2000 price tag.
Sony A7iv Specifications and Features
Sensor: The Sony A7 IV will have a newly developed 33MP sensor.
Viewfinder and screen: It may feature a 3.69-million dot electronic viewfinder. We may also see a fully articulating screen. The LCD could be “on the cheap side” so that manufacture can keep the price down. However, the image quality and AF will be top-notch.
Video: Sony A7iv may pack 4K video capture at 60 frames per second. Another rumour suggests it will stick at 4K/30p recording, which will be oversampled from the 7K recording. So if you are looking for 60p you may have to stick with Full HD.
Autofocus: It may get “Bird Eye AF”, seen on the Sony A1 which is very handy for nature photographers.
Burst shooting: It is believed that Sony A7iv will pack the Sony IMX554 sensor, which has a read-out of 36.6fps at 14-bit depth. This suggests we end up with around 18fps burst speed.
