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.

Sony A7 III High ISO Test

Finally, the first still High ISO test report of the Sony A7 III camera published by dpreview. Take a look at the high ISO test between Sony A7 III, Sony A7R III, Nikon D750 and Canon 5D Mark IV.

Sony A7 III vs Nikon D850 vs Sony A7R III vs Canon 5D Mark IV

Sony A7 II camera noise

 

As you can see the Sony A7R III is still a best choice for still work since you get a lot of details with high resolution sensor. Despite of having a weak filter inside the Sony A7 III camera the level of details isn’t similar to A7R III due to less resolution.

Nikon D850 is showing unusual color noise on BW image which is unacceptable. However the details are visible and moire is also very well controlled.

And finally we have the Canon 5D Mark IV camera. As we know that Canon cameras do have built-in OLPF and so we are not able to get the 100% details of a subject when compared to Camera without low-pass filter.

Sony A7 III Color noise test

color noise test image

As you can in this test I have kept ISO at 102400, practically I never use ISO above the 12800 in any FF DSLR / Mirrorless camera but to see the difference in test in first look results we have to set the ISO at a higher level.

As you can see clearly Sony A7R III and Nikon D850 color noise levels are well controlled compared to Sony A7 III . Despite of being a canon user for a long time, I have no hesitation is saying that Canon 5D Mk IV is suffering from a lot of color noise and loss of details.

Sony A7III is definitely one of the best  camera ever announced by Sony. I do have some issue but despite if that you are getting a lot features in $2k camera.

Big Shock: Sony A7 III is Even Better than Sony A7R III and GH5

Sony in general put whatever the best tech they have in upcoming camera. Same with the Sony A7 III, they have used the newly developed 24 MP BSI CMOS sensor and their Bionz X image processor.

Pro vlogger Max Yuryev tested out all Sony A7 III, Sony A7R III, Sony A6500 and Panasonic GH5. And the result was amazing.

Sony A7 III First High ISO Test

We have recovered shadow details 25% to make easy for you to detect noise in the first look.

You can see the level of noise at ISO 12800 while all the three Sony cameras including the Sony A6500 showing excellent noise control and perfect color output.

Panasonic GH5 is not able to push ISO limit upto 25600, now one more surprise here. The Sony A7 III and Sony A6500 controlling noise better than the A7R3 camera.

WOW, Sony A7III at ISO 51200

Even at ISO 51200 the Sony A7III camera showing excellent output compared to the Sony A7R III which is limited to ISO 25600.

Pls watch this Video in a bigger monitor with a resolution higher than HD to notice the difference.

Sony A7R III Dynamic Range Increases in Pixel-Shift Mode

Pixel Shift mode Sony A7R III

The most interesting thing related to Sony A7 R III  (Amazon  B&H) camera is its dynamic range increases over 1 stop when the camera captures images in pixels shift mode.

In the graph (created by Photons to photos) you can clearly see that the dynamic range of the camera increases over 1 Stop. Which is really a surprise gift for A7R III Landscape shooters.

So, if we put one more stop of dynamic range at A7R III test scores then Nikon D850 fails miserably. If I have to choose between these two camera I will sure pic the A7R III, since this mighty camera features better low-light ISO score and do provide us a option to increase the dynamic range of the camera to 1-stop when it requires. A excellent tool for Landscape shooters.
