4. ISO Range 50-102400

Sony engineers did a remarkable job to maintain the low-light performance of the camera. Despite of increase in the resolution (We all know as the resolution increases the photodiodes sizes gradually decreases resulting poor low light performance ) Sony A7R IV camera is able to deliver same ISO range as we have in the Sony A7R III.

We do have slight improvement in the external video recording mode of the Sony A7R IV camera, now you can record DCI 4K video in Sony A7R IV camera which was limited to UHD 4K in Sony A7R III.

The Sony a7R IV can capture full-frame 4K oversampled from 6K, that clearly means no pixel binning and you are getting maximum image quality possible. However, Sony A7R III also uses the same process to create 4K video.

So, we don’t have any major difference in the Video quality of both the camera despite of enjoying a major specs upgrade in the still part of A7R IV.

Canon 90D to feature Image Stabilization [Rumor]

According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Canon 90D will feature built-in image stabilization system. The rumor is coming from veteran rumor mill,  however take this information with a grain of salt, since it’s coming from anonymous sources.

It all started when we have published Canon is working for built-in image stabilization for DSLRs back on Nov 2018.

In general a patent takes two to three years to become a product. So, if we have spotted a DSLR Image stabilization unit patent back on 2018 then we can expect a DSLR camera with IS in 2020.

IS in FF DSLR before APS-C ?

We all know and Nikon is rumored to bring Image Stabilization inside Nikon D6 DSLR before 2020 Olympics. So, it do make a high possibility that upcoming Canon 1DX Mark III will carry built-in Image stabilization system inside it.

Take a look what Canon representatives said about IS tech. inside camera

We already have three patents on IBIS – on a mobile matrix and stabilization, Canon is currently developing a matrix stabilization technology – it will be coming soon. Other companies had a huge amount of problems with this. They test it essentially on users.

Fortunately here at thenewcamera.com we have published three different patents of Canon working in built-in image stabilization system See patent 1 | patent 2 | patent 3

Canon into DSLR cannibalization from 2018

It clearly means, if they bring a new technology (Like IS unit or BSI CMOS sensor or a new image processor) they will first prefer Mirrorless camera instead of DSLRs.

That’s why they have selected EOS M50 camera to introduce Digic 8 image processor,  first Canon APS-C Mirrorless camera to shoot 4K videos at 24p. Also first APS-C camera to feature .CR3 (3rd gen of RAW files) and also C-RAW which takes approx 40% less space compared to conventional RAW file.

In previous interviews Canon rep. told us that due to cost factor they were not able to introduce Image Stabilization inside EOS R camera.

So, they may prefer Canon EOS R Professional Mirroless camera or Canon EOS M5 Mark II to introduce Image stabilization inside FF or APS-C camera line-up.

About Canon 90D with Image Stabilization

Canon 90D can have Image Stabilization unit inside if Canon Marketing team wish to, otherwise they will prefer a APS-C Mirrorless camera for introducing Image Stabilization in APS-C Lineup before DSLRs.

Canon Profit Down to 40% [Fiscal year 2019]

Canon Profit down this year too for the fiscal year ending December 2019. Approx 40% down from the previous year.

Canon’s operating profit is on track to sink 40% this year to slightly over 200 billion yen ($1.85 billion), Nikkei has learned, amid a slowing European economy and slumping chip market.

The shrinking camera market continues to hurt Canon. Deliveries of digital cameras worldwide tumbled 24% on the year during the first five months of 2019, according to the Camera & Imaging Products Association, based in Tokyo. Sales of Canon’s single-lens reflex camera, a high-margin product, have declined in China and elsewhere.

For the second half, the company aims to expand revenue by rolling out new offerings such as additional lenses for the popular mirrorless cameras.
