Well, keep in mind that these are rumored set of specification, take it with a grain of salt. And as usual as we have told you earlier in one of our posts that Sony is now putting minimal core specs updates in their new cameras.

The reason behind these modest core updates (except A7S series) is the absence of a perfect competitor. Canon and Nikon Mirrorless ECO system isn’t mature enough to give tough competition to Sony A7 series cameras.

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.

    α7R IV     α7R III     D850      S1R        Z7    
Overall Score
(total sensor score)
99 100 100 100 99

highest ISO sensitivity that can be tolerated by DxO standards )

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.

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.

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.
