New AI Processing Unit
State-of-the-art AI processing with deep learning uses detailed information about human forms and poses to dramatically improve the camera’s subject recognition accuracy1 and make full use of its potential resolution. AI subject recognition has been expanded to include a number of new subject types, including vehicles and insects.
The α7R V's AF system delivers dramatically enhanced overall performance, drawing on major improvements in subject recognition performance. Deep learning technology supports powerful Real-time Recognition AF as well as more reliable Real-time Tracking which is supported by higher Fast Hybrid AF performance over a wider area.
61.0 MP Full-Frame CMOS Sensor
This newest generation of the α7R series continues the pursuit of high image resolution, delivering the highest resolution at low sensitivity in the series thus far. The 35mm full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor with 61.0 million pixels and the latest BIONZ XR™ image processing engine are used to their fullest potential to deliver extraordinary resolution and fine subject detail.
High quality 8K movie recording
The XAVC HS format enables in-camera recording of high-resolution, high-quality 8K (7680 x 4320) 24p (25p)18 movies with efficient HEVC/H.265 compression, bringing out the very best in Sony's lenses and taking full advantage of the resolution provided by the sensor and full-pixel readout. Even the finest subject details are faithfully captured.
Outstanding 4K movie recording up to 60p(50p)
Full frame and Super 35mm formats can be selected for 4K movie recording. Full pixel readout in the Super 35mm mode without the need for pixel binning20 makes 2.6x oversampling possible for 4K movies21. The XAVC S-I (All-Intra) or the XAVC HS format is supported, with 10-bit 4:2:2 color sampling.
5-Axis In-Body Image Stabilization
The α7R V has been upgraded to offer up to 8 steps of stabilization in the body alone, for the first time in the α series. A new stabilization algorithm provides precise detection and control right down to the single-pixel level, taking full advantage of the sensor's 61.0 megapixel resolution to bring out the finest subject details. This achieves effective stabilization for slow-shutter shots of interiors or night scenes where it is preferable to avoid the need for increased sensitivity.
4-Axis LCD Monitor
Sony's newly developed 4-axis multi-angle monitor combines the utility of a conventional tilting monitor with side-opening vari-angle flexibility. It allows greater shooting freedom by providing unrestricted angle adjustment in both horizontal and vertical orientations.
Active Mode Image Stabilization
Active Mode provides strong image stabilization for handheld movie shooting. In addition to in-body stabilization, compatible lenses with their own built-in image stabilization coordinate with the camera body for highly effective control, allowing even handheld telephoto shots.
The 9.44 million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder offers a 1.6x improvement in resolution, 0.90x viewfinder magnification, a 41° diagonal FOV, and a selectable 120 fps setting for minimal motion blur.
Dedicated Still/Movie/S&Q Dial
The Still/Movie/S&Q dial allows fast, independent selection, putting the most useful shooting settings for each mode within quick reach.
Built-in Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac) allows communication on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands and provides 2x2 MIMO support for fast and stable data transfer and reliable communication. The camera can be connected to a computer via Wi-Fi for wireless PC Remote (tethered) shooting using the “Remote” function of Sony’s latest Imaging Edge Desktop application, giving the user greater freedom of movement on location or in the studio. 2.4 GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi bands can be selected as required.
Dual CFexpress Type A /SDXC/SDHC Media Slots
The α7R V's two media slots support both CFexpress Type A memory cards and UHS-I and UHS-II SDXC/SDHC cards. The fast writing capabilities of Type A cards contribute to the ability to process large volumes of data without stress. There are separate modes for relay and simultaneous recording.
