Japanese website Nokishita Camera just confirmed that Sony will officially announce the new full frame mirrorless camera Sony a7R IV very soon. The official announcement would also bring a new “VG-C4EM” battery grip for a7R IV too.
According to previous reports the upcoming Sony A7R IV camera will feature the new 60MP IMX551 CMOS sensor. Theoretically, a 60Mp sensor would enable 8K video recording. But 8K video demands huge amounts of processing power.
We might see an upgrade on the video side as A7R IV could record 4K at 60p or even 120p for high-resolution slow-motion playback? Stay tuned for the details as we are getting closer to the Sony A7R IV announcement.
Below you can find the specs and compare with the IMX551:
- MX551 (Not for Sale/For Sony):
- SLVS-EC: 16Lane
- VideoMode: 12-ADC
- IMX455 (For Sale/For Nikon):
- SLVS-EC: 8Lane
- VideoMode: (Down to) Single ADC
