Sony India today announced the Alpha 7R V (model ILCE-7RM5) as the newest R series camera in its acclaimed line of Alpha mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. The Alpha 7R V combines Sony’s highest resolution image sensor with a new AI processing unit dedicated to AI-based image recognition – a first in any Alpha camera – as well as the powerful BIONZ XR image processing engine – a first in the “R” full-frame lineup.
The new Alpha 7R V offers 61.0MP still images plus the most effective 8-step image stabilisation system ever offered in any of Sony’s Alpha cameras, as well as refined 8K movie output, a new 4-axis multi-angle monitor, high-speed communication functions, high-level operability and smooth workflow integration.
“We are excited to introduce the all-new Alpha 7R V camera with high-resolution and extremely advanced AI processing unit which offers best-in-class autofocus performance. This newest addition to our Alpha 7R lineup is a perfect example of our persistent efforts to offer best-in-class imaging experience and new level of creative freedom to professionals.” said Mukesh Srivastava, Head of Digital Imaging Business at Sony India.
The latest BIONZ XR image processing engine ensures that the resolution potential of the camera’s sensor is fully utilised to deliver the highest resolution at low sensitivity in the Alpha series thus far. This enables sensitivity settings from ISO 100 to ISO 32000 for both stills and movies and wide dynamic range with 15 stops for stills. Real-time Recognition AF, using AI subject recognition, has been developed to include several subject types, including animals, vehicles and insects. The Alpha 7R V also includes continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking.
The Alpha 7R V’s entire image stabilisation system has been updated with a high-precision image stabilisation unit, advanced gyro sensors, and optimised image stabilisation algorithms for stills and video. Sony’s newest camera also offers upgraded Pixel Shift Multi Shooting, which takes advantage of the precision in-body image stabilisation system control, capturing multiple pixel-shifted images that are later composited using a computer. The Alpha 7R V now supports the lossless RAW format, with three selectable pixel counts—L (60M), M (26M), and S (15M).
The Alpha 7R V includes a new 4-axis multi-angle LCD monitor that combines the utility of a conventional tilting monitor with side-opening vari-angle flexibility, and an electronic viewfinder with 9.44 million dots. The Alpha 7R V also includes two CFexpress Type A/SDXC compatible media slots and a brand-new menu system with touch control and a wide range of customisable functions.
Sony’s newest camera delivers 8K1 24/25p video, 4K video oversampled from 6.2K without binning, a high-efficiency MPEG-H HEVC/H.265 codec, intra recording, 10-bit 4:2:2 recording, and more for high image quality and flexible editing. The Alpha 7R V features Real-time Recognition AF, which is next-generation AF with advanced accuracy and broader subject recognition thanks to a new AI processing unit with deep learning. Real-time Recognition AF, using AI subject recognition, has been developed to include several subject types, including animals, vehicles, and insects. The Alpha 7R V also includes continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking.
The Alpha 7R V also allows professionals to optimise their workflow with updated connectivity for improved support. Data can be transferred at high speed over Wi-Fi (802.11ac) 2×2 MIMO or a wired SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps connection via a USB-C® port. The Alpha 7R V is also compatible with the new PCK-LG3 Screen Protect Glass Sheet, which maintains touch sensitivity while protecting the LCD monitor against stains and fingerprints.
