The popular Sony brand introduced a new full-frame camera from the Alpha series on Wednesday. It bears the name Alpha 7R V and should particularly convince with its above-average autofocus.
Does Sony outshine the other manufacturers?
If you’ve ever been on the hunt for the perfect camera, the Sony brand has certainly caught your eye. With the new Alpha 7R V, Sony has once again set the bar quite high. The new model has some exciting features to offer, but the main feature of the camera is the special autofocus.
Equipment and technical features
In terms of resolution, nothing has changed compared to the predecessor (ALpha 7R IV) – it remains at 9504 x 6336 pixels. However, the BIONZ XR image processor and the ISO setting with a large range ensure very high image quality. This time videos can even be filmed in 8K, and the remaining video functions, such as 4K videos with 60 frames per second, are also impressive.
Sony hasn’t skimped on the display either. It can be folded up and down and swiveled left or right. In addition, the manufacturer advertises an integrated image stabilizer, which is supposed to ensure optimal wobble compensation. The display itself has an appreciable 1024 x 682 pixels.
The very extensive video from Sony gives further insights into the functions of the camera:
The well-designed autofocus is probably the most important feature of the new 7R V. Thanks to the fast image processor and the AI unit, even better subject recognition is possible. The camera now recognizes insects and, in the case of humans, not only the eyes and body but also the posture and positions of various body parts such as shoulders and hips.
The autofocus should always be very precise, even if half of the face is covered or not visible at all. This is because the model also has 693 measuring points.
Update: The full-frame camera is expected to be available on the market in November and will cost:
