The Alpha 7 IV, the successor to the wildly popular Alpha 7 III, boasts a 33-megapixel sensor, up to 10 frames per second shooting, and a slew of video functions, according to Sony, making it a natural hybrid full-frame system. The Sony Alpha 7 IV has a 33-megapixel backside illuminated sensor powered by Sony’s latest-generation CPU (BSI). While the camera is not stacked, Sony claims top-notch image quality and decisive artificial-intelligence-based autofocus.

The Alpha 7 IV is positioned above the a6600 and alongside the Alpha 7 III and a7C in Sony’s camera lineup, but below the Alpha 7S III, Alpha 7R IV, and Alpha 1.

Sony is aiming at existing hybrid shooters and skilled amateurs and a new and growing category of users that prioritize streaming and file sharing.

The 33-megapixel sensor contains 759 phase-detection autofocus points for a 94 percent sensor coverage and real-time eye-autofocus for humans, animals, and birds. It also has a significantly upgraded IBIS technology with 5.5-stop image stabilization, up from 5-stops previously.In AF-S mode, Sony claims that its latest focusing algorithms provide great precision at light levels as low as EV -4.

In addition, thanks to a more powerful processor and a huge buffer, and a higher memory card, write speeds, the camera can shoot 828 continuous uncompressed RAW plus JPEGs. From a hardware standpoint, the camera differs from its predecessor in a few ways. For starters, it has a 3.68 million-dot OLED viewfinder that can switch between 60 and 120 frames per second.
