Sony Alpha a7R V Body

State-of-the-art AI processing uses detailed information about human forms and postures to dramatically improve the camera's subject recognition accuracy1 and make full use of its potential resolution. Also, subject recognition has been expanded to include a number of new subject types, including vehicles and insects.

Key Features

  • AI Processing Unit for Advanced Subject Recognition
    The α7R V is equipped with an AI processing unit specifically dedicated to interpreting significant amounts of data to enable more accurate recognition of subjects and recognition of a wider range of subject types.
  • Human Pose Estimation
    The α7R V uses subject form data to recognize movement, providing a roughly 60% improvement in human eye recognition. Human pose estimation uses learned human forms and postures to precisely recognize not just eyes, but body and head position, making it possible to lock onto and track a subject facing away from the camera or wearing a mask, for example.
  • Recognize a Wider Range of Subjects
    In addition to humans, animals and birds, the camera now recognises insects, cars, trains and airplanes4, providing even greater flexibility and reliability when shooting both stills and movies. Heads and bodies are now recognized in addition to eyes (Real-time Eye AF) for the Human, Animal, and Bird settings.
  • Improved Accuracy of WB Control
    The α7R V's 7R V's AWB (auto white balance) function has evolved in tandem with the camera's AI capabilities. In addition to the Visible Light + IR sensor on the front of the body, the camera's AI processing unit helps to achieve more accurate white balance in difficult lighting, such as when the subject is in shadow.
  • A New High in α Resolution
    The output from the 35mm full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor, with approximately 61.0 million effective pixels, is processed in real time to the fullest extent by the advanced BIONZ XR™ processing engine to deliver breathtaking detail in both stills and movies.
  • 35mm Full-frame Image Sensor with 61.0 Effective Megapixels
    The sensor is packed with Sony's image sensor technologies, with effective noise reduction realized by its back-illuminated structure, plus gapless on-chip lenses, AR coating (anti-reflection seal glass), and the elimination of an optical low pass filter.
  • The Latest BIONZ XR Image Processing Engine
    With up to eight times the processing power of its predecessor, the new BIONZ XR processes huge volumes of image data while minimizing latency and markedly boosting the camera’s movie and still-image processing power.
  • Consistently Accurate Exposure & Color
    The latest BIONZ XR engine achieves even better exposure control and color reproduction accuracy. A new AE (auto exposure) algorithm is capable of detecting the skin area in faces and controlling exposure accordingly when shooting stills and movies.
  • Selectable RAW Image Sizes Quality
    The α7R V now supports the lossless RAW format, with three selectable pixel counts - L (60M), M (26M), and S (15M). Both M and S sizes offer the same resolution in full-frame and APS-C fields of view, for simpler post-production workflow.
  • Advanced 5-axis In-body Optical Stabilization
    Advanced 5-axis in-body optical 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. This achieves effective stabilization for slow-shutter shots of interiors or night scenes where it is preferable to avoid the need for increased sensitivity.
  • Precise Compensation at the Single-pixel Level
    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.
  • Creative Look Supports Varied Expression
    The Creative Look feature provides 10 presets that can be used unmodified or edited to create a variety of “looks” that can help creators fine-tune the mood of their stills or movies in-camera.
  • Pixel Shift Multi Shooting responds to Changing Conditions
    Pixel Shift Multi Shooting takes advantage of precision in-body image stabilization system control. Up to 16 pixel-shifted images are captured and later composited using a computer to achieve overwhelming resolution in a single image. Even tiny movements down to single-pixel level can be detected and compensated for by the PC software performing the compositing.
  • Real-time Recognition AF
    The α7R V's AF system delivers dramatically enhanced overall performance, drawing on major advances in subject recognition technology. Deep learning technology supports powerful Real-time Recognition AF (autofocus) as well as more reliable Real-time Tracking11 which is supported by higher Fast Hybrid AF performance over a wider area.
  • Faster, More Precise Wide-area AF
    The immense processing power of the new BIONZ XR engine and updated algorithms achieve notably improved AF (autofocus) performance. Up to 693 phase-detection points in a high-density array cover approximately 79% of the image area.
  • Accurate AF in low EV -4.0 Light
    The latest AF algorithms enable high AF precision down to light levels as low as EV -4.0 in AF-S mode. The α7R V also includes a Focus Priority mode that provides more reliable AF in low light or when using smaller apertures.
  • Continuously Shoot Up to 583 Compressed RAW Images at 10fps
    Continuous shooting at up to 10fps with full AF/AE tracking is possible with the mechanical or electronic shutter. The camera can shoot up to 583 compressed RAW images at this speed.
  • Focus Bracketing to Capture the Best Shot
    The camera will automatically shoot up to 299 images with sequentially shifted focus points, with custom intervals and sequence specified by the user. Pick the perfect shot, or post-process multiple shots to achieve creative composites with impossible focus depth.
  • Flicker Suppression
    Flicker from artificial lighting can be effectively suppressed, with your choice of "Anti-flicker shoot" for still shots or "Var Shutter" to fine-tune shutter speeds to match flicker rates when shooting either stills or movies.
  • Full-time DMF (Direct Manual Focus)
    When shooting stills with AF-C or AF-S autofocus, the lens's focus ring can be rotated to instantly switch to manual focus mode at any time. This makes it easy to switch focus to a different subject on the fly.
  • 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 binning makes 2.6x oversampling possible for 4K movies. The XAVC S-I (All-Intra) or the XAVC HS format is supported, with 10-bit 4:2:2 color sampling.
  • Expressive S-Cinetone
    Based on the technology of CineAlta cameras such as the acclaimed VENICE, S-Cinetone delivers natural midtones that are essential to healthy-looking skin tones, plus soft colors and gorgeous highlights.
  • S-log3 Gamma Curve wit h14+ Stops of Latitude
    The S-Log3 gamma curve emphazises gradation characteristics from shadows to mid-gray (18% gray), achieving up to 14+ stops of latitude for efficient editing.
  • Real-Time Tracking for Movies
    Thanks to improvements in subject recognition, Real-Time Tracking is now even better, automatically tracking specified tracking subjects with precise focus, including focus on the subject's eyes.
  • Active Mode Provides Strong Image Stabilization
    Active Mode provides strong 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.
  • Breathing Compenstation for Consistent Angle of View
    When shooting movies, breathing compensation uses Clear Image Zoom technology to maintain a consistent angle of view, suppressing changes that may occur due to shifts in focus position. Breathing metadata can also be used in post production.
  • Comprehensive Movie Tools
    The camera provides various movie tools such as clear recording tally frame on the display, Flexible Exposure Mode, WB adjustment while recording, new Shot Mark, aspect markers, and a movie self-timer.
