Finally, there is some movement in the camera market again - Canon has introduced APS-C models in the R series, next week there will be announcements from ARRI and Fujifilm. Sony should also have news soon - for example, the successor to the Alpha 7R IV is expected, which has been on the market since 2019.
Sony 7R IV
Recently, a complete set of leaked technical specifications for the Alpha 7R V has been circulating. Unconfirmed data should always be treated with a certain degree of caution, but the specifications seem quite credible - many things remind us of the a7IV - and are also rather interesting in terms of video, which is why we are picking them up here.
According to the specs, the A7RV will be the first camera in the Alpha7 series to be able to shoot in 8K, at a max of 30p with 9.6K oversampling. 4:2:2 10bit also seems to be implemented now. Compared to the predecessor, heat dissipation is said to be up to 5x more effective, so long recording times should be guaranteed. The allegedly newly developed sensor still has a resolution of 61MP, but should be able to be read out twice as fast as before, which is certainly also due to the current BIONZ XR processor, which is already at work in the Alpha 1 and Alpha 7IV.
According to the leaked data, the number of phase detection points has increased to 759 (as in the a7IV). A focus map seems to be included (also like on the a7IV), which illustrates the current depth of field. In-body stabilization is again present; the a7RIV already had this. Furthermore, the viewfinder seems to have a much higher resolution of 9.44 million pixels.
The whole long list of alleged specs can be found at Photorumors - when the camera will be announced doesn&t seem to be known yet.
