Sony A7R

 

The world's smallest full-frame camera is also one of the best

Great build quality ; Impressive video capabilities ; Strong image quality

Restrictive native lens line-up ; AF not as good as A7

The Alpha 7R is either equivalent or superior to its cheaper brother spec-wise in pretty much every way except one: autofocus. The A7 uses a combination of two types of autofocus, called phase detection and contrast detection, to deliver lightning fast...

Sony A7R IV review: Here's to new resolutions

 

Sony's ultra-high-res full-frame mirrorless camera sports 61-megapixels. But what's its overall feature set like and does it trump the MkIII model?

Huge resolution ; Extensive and capable AF system ; High resolution viewfinder ; Great battery life

Limited touchscreen ability ; Restricted screen angle adjustment ; No 60p option in 4K or 10bit capture ; Body not a slim as it once was

The Sony A7R Mark IV delivers medium-format-level detail without sacrificing on performance. And while you do pay a significant premium for the privilege, high-resolution mirrorless cameras don't get any better than this.

Sony A7R review

 

Full-frame sensor, tank-like build and lightning autofocus makes Sony's pro-friendly camera mighty tempting – even at this eye-watering price

Huge full-frame sensor ; Superb image quality ; Lightning autofocus speed ; Excellent viewfinder ; Rock-solid build

The price hurts ; No in-body image stabilisation

Fantastic ability and design come together to make a truly stellar mirrorless camera – with a price tag to match

Sony Alpha A7R review

 

The Sony Alpha A7R is a specialist camera if we ever saw one. Visually it looks nigh-on identical to the Alpha A7 - the other full-frame compact system camera released alongside this one - but it's that capital "R", which we'll call "resolution", that...

Small size, incredible low ISO full-frame image quality, excellent viewfinder quality, tilt-angle LCD, button customisation. focus peaking for accurate manual focus adjust

Poor battery life, some autofocus inaccuracy - and less capable than the more budget A7, full FE lens system yet to materialise, high ISO quality not class-leading

To some the A7R’s presence may baffle. A pricier and, in part, less featured A7 - what’s the point? Well, our friends, this specialist kit is all about superior image quality. And it’s here that the Alpha A7R really stands out.

Not content with launching one full-frame compact system camera, Sony has gone and launched two. The Sony Alpha A7R joins the A7 model, but offers a significant

Sony Alpha A7R IV review

 

Sony has spent much of the past year proving just how seriously it’s taking the needs and demands of enthusiast and pro photographers. It updated its flagship compact proposition with the RX100 VII, while the Alpha A6400 , Alpha A6100, and Alpha...

Great handling with improved ergonomics Very fast and intelligent AF system Bright, sharp and high-contrast viewfinder Excellent 4K video quality Pixel Shift Multi Shot capable of superb detail Well-behaved metering system

Some AWB and focus issues Rolling shutter noticeable in videos Mode dial more awkward to access than before Touchscreen could be better No in-camera raw processing No motion correction in Pixel Shift mode

The A7R IV proves that Sony is still very much on a roll with its Alpha line. While a handful of niggles from previous models remain, the class-leading pixel count, revamped Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode and autofocusing improvements in particular...

Sony Alpha A7R review

 

Superb image quality from this revolutionary CSC

High resolution sensor ; No AA filter ; Full frame ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi

No touchscreen

Both the Sony A7 and the A7R are fantastic innovations. But for now, the system isn't quite complete enough. Although image quality is fantastic, it feels as if there are a few kinks that need to be ironed out.
