Sony A7R IV Visited DXO Mark

Despite the increased resolution of the α7R IV has maintained a great dynamic range, very good color reproduction, and very low noise. Although it has not surpassed low-pixel rivals in terms of performance, specifically I am talking about Sony A7R III, Nikon Z7.

The α7R IV sensor has been greatly increased in pixel count, but as far as the DxO score is concerned, it does not affect the dynamic range or high sensitivity, and seems to continue to maintain top-class performance.

Read this before you buy Sony A6600

It’s look like someone not happy with the Sony A6600 camera announcement. Sony A6500 camera was announced back on October 2016, now after waiting for 2+ years Sony announced A6600 camera with minor updates over A6500. Take a look what Engadget said when they have tested out the new Sony A6600 camera.

It’s bizarre that Sony didn’t update the sensor over the last model, considering that it’s the world’s leader in sensor technology. The bad rolling shutter was the biggest weakness of the original A6500, and it’s now back to haunt the A6600. In 2019, it has to compete against the X-T3, Z 50, Canon’s M6 II and Panasonic’s GH5, none of which have rolling shutter that’s nearly as noticeable. I also wish it had two faster card slots and more advanced 4K options.

If you’re looking to spend $1,400, I’d get the X-T3 instead, which is a better all around camera. If it’s resolution you need, take a look at Canon’s M6 Mark II which is cheaper ($1,050 with the EVF) and can also shoot faster. If you’re okay with a smaller Micro Four Thirds sensor, Panasonic’s $1,500 GH5 is still the best video-centric mirrorless camera out there, especially with recent AF firmware updates.

They could use the new 26MP BIS CMOS sensor they have sold to Fuji, at the same time to work effectively on s-log we need at least 10bit video output from the camera. But again Sony A6600 limited to 8bit as of its predecessor. They need to simplify their APS-C line-up of camera as they have did in FF range. At the end, you might get an A7III for the price of the a6600 and that is definitely a better deal!

Sony A9 II Press Release, Full Specification and More

Sony finally announced the Sony A9 II (B&H Store )camera with almost same specification we have in the Sony A9 camera. The only major update we are able to notice in the new camera is the introduction of new Bionzx image processor. Since, the sensor is same as of Sony A9.

So with the introduction of new image processor we are able to enjoy 1-stop better dynamic range, 1-stop low light performance from the predecessor, but more or less we are getting the same sensor we had in the Sony A9 camera.

Sony A9 II Major Specification

  • 24.2MP Full-Frame Exmor RS CMOS Sensor
  • BIONZ X Image Processor & Front-End LSI
  • 693-Point Phase-Detection AF System
  • Up to 20 fps Shooting, ISO 100-204800
  • UHD 4K30p Video, Real-Time Eye AF
  • Blackout-Free Quad-VGA 3.7m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 3.0″ 1.44m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization
  • Dual UHS-II SD Card Slots, Voice Memos
  • 5 GHz Wi-Fi, 1000BASE-T Ethernet

For the first time they have introduced anti flicker mechanical shutter inside the camera, as we have in the Sony A7R IV. With the help of the mechanical shutter now we have 10 frames per second shooting speed, and if you need more speed than you can switch to the electronic shutter mode and you will be getting 20FPS continuous shooting speed from the Sony A9 II camera with full time Autofocus tracking on.

Image stabilization of the camera is improved up 0.5 stops compared to the Sony A9, although the electronic viewfinder of the camera remains same as of its predecessor (3.7Mdot EVF).

Sony also improve the wireless transfer speed of the camera by including a better 5Ghz Wi-Fi mechanism and Gigabyte  Ethernet port.

At the end I will say, It was just a incremental update from its predecessor and not a major. From past two announcement Sony is doing incremental updates to their camera if you are going to talk about the Sony S6600 camera or Sony A9 II, all they are sufferer of incremental updates.

Sony A9 II Press Release

Sony Electronics Introduces the Alpha 9 II with Enhanced Connectivity and Workflow for Professional Sports Photographers and Photojournalists

New Alpha 9 II Combines Alpha 9’s Unrivaled Speed with New Functionality to Match the Needs of Professionals

SAN DIEGO — October 3, 2019 — Sony Electronics today announced Alpha 9 II (model ILCE-9M2). The latest model from Sony’s acclaimed line-up of α (Alpha) full-frame interchangeable lens cameras, the new model has been created to support working professionals in the fields of sports photography and photojournalism.

The new Alpha 9 II builds on the impressive legacy of the original Alpha 9, maintaining groundbreaking speed performance, including blackout-free continuous shooting at up to 20 frames per second with Auto Focus and Auto Exposure tracking at 60 calculations per second.

Updates include significantly enhanced connectivity and file delivery, continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with mechanical shutter, and evolved AF performance with newly optimized algorithms, re-designed build to enhance durability and operability.

“The voice of our customers is absolutely critical to Sony – we are always listening,” said Neal Manowitz, deputy president for Imaging Products and Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics. “The Alpha 9 II is the direct result of our work with agency, sports and news photographers since the launch of the original Alpha 9. We have added connectivity and network capabilities that drastically improve the professional workflow, while also making enhancements to design, interface and processing power that complete the user experience. Complemented by our extremely versatile E-mount system – with 55 native lenses introduced at this point including super-telephoto 600mm and 400mm G Master™ series lenses – this new camera is a tool unlike any other for professionals, whether in the field or on the field.”

Raising the Bar for Built-in Connectivity in the Professional’s Workflow

The Alpha 9 II includes a built-in 1000BASE-T Ethernet terminal, enabling gigabit communication for high-speed, stable data transfer operations. Additionally, File Transfer over SSL or TLS encryption (FTPS) is supported for increased data security and PC remote (tether) shooting performance is improved, with decreased release time lag and reduced live view screen delay when using the ‘Remote Camera Tool’ desktop application. The speed of the camera’s built-in wireless LAN functionality has also been increased, adding a stable and fast 5 GHz (IEEE 802.11ac) band, in addition to the 2.4 GHz provided in the Alpha 9. IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards are all supported.

Designed to improve the speed of news agencies’ workflow, the Alpha 9 II features a new Voice Memo function that allows spoken information to be attached to images in the form of voice memos that can be replayed when the images are reviewed. The voice data can also be included with images sent to an editor, giving them important information needed for effective editing. Alternatively, a field photographer can also use the ‘Transfer & Tagging add-on’ “Imaging Edge™” application to transfer voice tags with the images to their mobile device and have the voice memos automatically converted to text and added to the JPEG images in the form of IPTC metadata. All of this can be done automatically or manually selected by the photographer.

By combining wireless voice/image transfer and automatic voice-to-text conversion with the ability to auto-transfer images with attached voice memos via FTP, it is possible to shoot and transfer the results to an FTP server without ever having to operate a smartphone. FTP settings within the app can also be sent to a camera via Bluetooth®, allowing for a faster workflow.

The Platinum Standard for Speed and Auto Focus Performance

The new Alpha 9 II shares the same acclaimed 35mm full-frame stacked 24.2 MP Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor with integral memory as the original Alpha 9, giving it the same unmatched speed performance and outstanding image quality. The new model can shoot continuously and completely silently at 20 fps for up to 361 JPEG images or 239 compressed RAW images, with no viewfinder blackout allowing the photographer to follow the subject and action with no interruption to the EVF during picture taking. For times when mechanical shutter is preferred or required, the new Alpha 9 II has been improved to shoot at up to 10 fps, about 2x the speed of the Alpha 9.

The camera is able to function while continuously calculating Auto Focus and Auto Exposure at up to 60 times per second, with newly optimized AF algorithms that provide notably enhanced AF precision and performance, ensuring that even the most erratic subject motion that is associated with sports are captured with high precision. Also useful for sporting events, the camera now offers an anti-flicker shooting mode that automatically detects and adjusts for the presence of fluorescent or artificial lighting to maximize image quality.

The advanced focusing system in the new Alpha 9 II is far beyond the capabilities of any professional camera. Comprised of 693 focal-plane phase-detection AF points covering approximately 93% of the image area, as well as 425 contrast AF points, the Fast Hybrid Auto Focus system achieves extremely fast and accurate performance, ensuring all fast-moving subjects are accurately captured. Additional notable focusing capabilities include Real-time Eye AF with right eye / left eye selection, Real-time Eye AF for animal augmented with a new algorithm, Real-Time Eye AF for movie, Real-time Tracking, selectable focus frame color, Touch Pad focus point control while using the viewfinder and more. AF can also now continuously track even if continuous shooting is greater than F16, providing further accuracy for shots that require slower shutter speeds.

Refined Build and Operability

  • Upgraded BIONZ X™ image processing engine gains maximum benefit from the sensor’s fast readout speed; processor works with front-end LSI to enhance speed in AF/AE detection, image processing, face detection and accuracy, and more
  • Upgraded dust and moisture resistant design to meet the needs of professionals in even the most challenging outdoor conditions; stronger sealing provided at all body seams as well as the battery compartment cover and media slot
  • Latest developed image-processing algorithm reduces noise in the medium-to-high sensitivity range while improving subjective resolution and image quality
  • 5-axis optical in-body image stabilization system that provides a shutter speed advantage of 5.5 steps
  • Improved grip configuration for even greater comfort and sure hold; compatible with Sony VG-C4EM Vertical Grip
  • Improved button design and feel; increased diameter and feedback of the ‘AF-ON’ button; a refined multi-selector joystick design; an exposure compensation dial lock button; and a redesigned shape and new position for the rear dial
  • Redesigned shutter mechanism to suppress even the slightest movement that can cause image blur; tested for durability in excess of 500,000 shutter cycles
  • USB Type-C™ connector that supports fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer
  • Dual media slots that are both compatible with UHS-I and UHS-II SD cards, allowing higher overall capacity and faster read/write speeds
  • Digital audio interface has been added to the camera’s Multi Interface Shoe™ (MI Shoe), enabling the new ECM-B1M Shotgun Microphone or XLR-K3M XLR Adaptor Kit to be connected directly to the MI Shoe for cleaner, clearer audio recordings

Pricing and Availability

The new Alpha 9 II will be available in November 2019 priced at approximately $4,500 US and $6,000 CA. It will be sold at a variety of Sony’s authorized dealers throughout North America.

Sony A7R IV is a Star Eater Camera ?

It’s look like Astro Photographers are not happy with the Sony A7R IV camera. While putting camera on longer exposure to capture night sky, due to the presence of strong noise reduction filter the A7RIV wipes out most of the stars from the scene. Take a look what Jim (Jim website) said about the camera

I’m not going to bury the lead here: the Sony a7RIV eats stars just about like the a7RIII does…except that the new behavior starts at 3.2 seconds instead of 4 seconds.

Sony should create a dedicated Star capture mode, and star trail for their camera like Olympus did years ago.

Sony A7R IV High ISO Test

Sony A7R IV camera packs Sony’s 61MP FF BSI CMOS sensor. We have no doubt that Sony A7R IV is industry leading high-resoltuion Mirrorless solution in FF lineup and after that we have Fuji GFX100 MF camera if we want more resolution.

Finally after a long gap we have high ISO test samples available in dpreview studio comparison tool. So, the link is at the end post if you want to play with others cameras. Before that let’s take a look at what ISO rating the noise starts to show off in Sony A7R IV RAW and JPEG file.

Usable ISO Range of Sony A7R IV in JPEG Mode

There are lot of people who grab JPEG files from the camera, Since they have no time to edit RAW photos. Specifically, I am talking about wedding and event shooters those who prefer JPEG most of the time.

Sony A7R IV Max JPEG usable ISO range is ISO 6400. After ISO 6400 we do get significant amount of noise in camera sample and it make it almost unusable for professional use or you need a strong noise reduction filter after ISO 6400 rating if you want to reduce noise.

Sony A7R IV @ RAW Mode

At Raw mode we can notice noise starts to appear after ISO 800 in Sony A7R IV camera.
