Sony has revamped two full-frame mirrorless cameras with a silent and surprise product announcement. As a result the company unveiled two small updated version of their current A7rIII and A7rIV cameras. Sony a7R IIIA (LCE-7RM3A) and Sony a7R IVA (ILCE-7RM4A).
In fact, we could have expected this announcement from Sony on April 1 for complete confusion. 🙂 Joking aside, the announcement is real. The updated cameras now have an ‘a’ designation to their model numbers to differentiate them from their original predecessors.
- LCD screen resolution changed from 1.44 million dots to 2,359,296 dots
- Both cameras are now compatible with USB 3.2 (SuperSpeed USB 5Gbps)
- No Sony logo under the LCD screen (see above picture)
- The battery life has also been updated
According to the update product specifications, both the a7R III (model: ILCE-7RM3A) and a7R IV (model: ILCE-7RM4A) have improved rear LCD panels, up to 2.36 million dots compared to the 1.44 million dots in the original models. Sony notes in the the battery life of the updated cameras has dropped slightly (10 shots) when using the LCD panel. Also, based on the product photos on Sony’s website, the a7R IV (model: ILCE-7RM4A) no longer has the Sony logo under the LCD monitor.
Stay tuned for more updates.
