Sony today unveiled the Alpha 7R Mark IV, the world’s first 61-megapixel full-frame camera, which is 50% more pixels than its predecessor. Featuring a back-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor design and BIONZ X processor that work together to produce exceptionally clean images quickly, complete with up to 15 stops of dynamic range, making the a7R IV perfect for challenging lighting environments. A 5.76m-dot UXGA OLED electronic viewfinder improves resolution during capture, giving you the option of setting a refresh rate of 60 or 120 fps, depending on what you are trying to capture.

Despite the a7R IV’s emphasis on resolution, it’s definitely no slouch when it comes to video, as it can record UHD 4K up to 30p and 100 Mb/s. Shooting in APS-C/Super35 crop mode down-samples its 6K area into a 4K image for superior quality footage, while a new digital microphone sends audio signal through a redesigned Multi Interface Shoe for superb quality. It’s set to ship in September, priced at $3,500 US.
