Sony a7R IV Mirrorless Digital Camera Body


This item is no longer available.

Written by Mahesh Thapa

The headline feature of the a7R IV is, of course, the 61.2MP Back Side Illuminated (BSI) CMOS full-frame sensor. Plus, the increased resolution gives you flexibility in cropping. For me, it’s almost like having an extra telephoto lens.

Fantastic resolution

By Stickman 1.

I purchased the Sony a7riv in May this year and have found it to be a superb camera in the quality of the results achieved. I am strictly a nature photographer using both the Sony 90mm macro and 200-600 lenses both these lenses give work well with the a7riv body.


Flexibility is the name of the game A7R IV


Having a blast with this camera. I am able to take landscapes, animal, and portrait photos with quick changes in the settings. The large sensor yields incredible clarity. The camera body is smaller than I expected, but feels solid in my hands. I have no complaints and feel like a received a good value from this purchase.

Sony has discontinued this version & released an updated model with improved design & features. Click here to check out the brand new Sony A7RIV.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.
