Sony’s A7 series has gained a lot of popularity over the years as being a great camera not just for professionals, but hobbyists and enthusiasts who are looking for a higher-end full-frame mirrorless camera. The latest models are the A7III series, but in the coming weeks, the company is expected to announce the A7IV.
This is according to a report from Mirrorless Rumors who claim that theSony A7IV could be announced on the 21st of October. According to the rumored specs of the upcoming camera, we’re looking at a newly developed 33MP sensor with 15 stops of DR, a 3.69m dot EVF LCD display, and it is also rumored that the A7IV can record 4K video at 30 fps when oversampled from 7K, or 60 fps when oversampled by 4.8K.
The camera is also said to be accompanied by a fully articulating LCD screen and will support full size HDMI, support for UHS-II SD cards and CF Xpress memory cards, 5.5 stops of IBIS, and more. The design of the camera won’t change apparently as it will feature a similar design to the A7S III and will utilize the same heatsink.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing since the A7S III has a pretty good design, so there’s no reason for Sony to change it if it isn’t necessary. The report speculates that the camera could end up priced around the $2,499 mark, so it won’t be cheap, but this is clearly aimed at users who are looking for an upgrade for their camera gear.
