The guys over at SonyAlphaRumors apparently got their hands on a new set of specs for Sony’s up and coming Sony A7 IV.
While they essentially confirm the spec range that we’ve already seen so far, they do mention that the release date will not be earlier than Q2 2021, and that it will have a new sensor – not just a recycled 24MP one.
The older specs that weve already seen, seem to show that Sony’s mid range camera is to be equipped with a new 30MP sensors, a new menu system, dual SD and CFexpress memory card slots (sounds a lot like Nikons rumoured Z7s and Z6s) and 4k 60FPS video capabilities.
The Sony A7 IV is the highly awaited follow up to the much beloved all arounder, the Sony A7 III. Compared to the A7 III, the Sony A7 IV looks to have been beefed up with a decent resolution bump – and if the leaks are to be believed, it will launch with a massively improved menu system including the updated layout and touch input that we’ve seen in the Sony A7s III.
And unliked both Canons EOS R5 and R6, and Fujis X-T4, the Sony A7 IV will be capable of recording 4k video with up to 60fps (without those nasty heat issues).
The price for the new Sony A7 IV is rumored to be hovering around $2,500, and is set for a (quite distant) Q3 in 2021.
