of the α7 IV to provide outstanding reliability even in challenging outdoor shooting environments. Design refinements include more   sealing at body seams and the battery compartment cover (compared to the α7 III), a redesigned lens lock button, and extra cushioning around the mount. A lightweight, high-rigidity magnesium alloy used for the camera's top cover, front cover, and internal frame provides excellent durability.  
Consideration for the environment and resource conservation 
Consideration for the environment and resource conservation 
Sony's "Road to Zero" environmental plan was launched in 2010 with the ultimate goal of achieving a zero environmental footprint. Currently nearly all  plastic packaging materials for the α7 IV are  recycled. Recyclable materials are also used for camera bodies whenever possible, reducing environmental burden without compromising functionality. While retaining state-of-the-art performance, we aim to further reduce energy and resource consumption to reduce the burden on the environment.

Beautiful colour expression made simple, with S-Cinetone™ 
The α7 IV supports S-Cinetone, based on expertise gained through development of the VENICE CineAlta camera. This look is responsible for the beautiful skin tones for which Cinema Line cameras like the FX9, FX6 and FX3 are widely acclaimed. It delivers natural mid-tones for healthy-looking skin colour, plus soft colours and gorgeous highlights. Because it's in-camera, it's easy to create a more expressive look for your movie imagery without post-editing.
S-Log for colour matching with professional video equipment
S-Log for colour matching with professional video equipment
The α7 IV provides S-Log2 and S-Log3 gamma curves, with the latter allowing capture of 15+ stops
17
of dynamic range. The S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine colour gamut settings make it easy to match α7 IV footage with footage from VENICE digital cinema cameras or Cinema Line cameras like the FX6 and FX3. The native sensitivity when shooting S-Log is ISO 800, and it can be lowered by as much as two stops (ISO 200-640) below the standard range to achieve extra low noise.
Soft Skin Effect for bright and beautiful skin appearance
Soft Skin Effect for bright and beautiful skin appearance
The built-in Soft Skin Effect makes skin look more beautiful, softening wrinkles, blemishes and dull patches while preserving liveliness in eye and mouth areas. Complementing the capabilities of the full-frame sensor, this feature can add appeal to live-streamed sessions as well as enhancing still shots and movies. Four level settings are available
18
, so you can adjust the degree of the effect as you wish.

The α7 IV's high-precision stabilisation unit and gyro sensors work with stabilisation algorithms to achieve up to 5.5 steps
20
of shutter-speed compensation, to maximise the performance of the camera's 33.0MP
21
sensor. This in-body stabilisation allows effective use with a wide range of lenses. The live monitor view shows the stabilised still image while the shutter button is half-pressed, an especially helpful feature when using a telephoto or macro lens, and it can be used in conjunction with the MF Assist and Focus Magnifier features.
Hand-held movie shooting with Active Mode<sup>18</sup>

uses the camera's stabilisation unit, gyro sensors and sophisticated algorithms for highly effective in-camera optical image stabilisation during movie shoots. The powerful processing engine precisely detects the required amount of compensation for smooth stabilisation in all formats
24
, including 4K, without compromising the α7 IV's compact size and mobility. And, because the gyro data is also recorded alongside the video, even more effective post-production stabilisation can be applied for ultra smooth shots using Catalyst Browse/Prepare software
25
Buffer memory supports continuous shooting and recording
Buffer memory supports continuous shooting and recording
Both the mechanical and electronic shutters allow continuous shooting at up to 10 fps
26
with AF/AE tracking. The latest powerful processing engine and increased buffer memory allow faster writing to memory cards, so you can shoot more than 800
27
uncompressed RAW+JPEG frames (more than 1600 altogether), or more than 1000 compressed RAW+JPEG frames (more than 2000 altogether, up to a full memory card)
28
. Increased processing power also allows you to change menu settings even while data is being written to the memory card. 
Fast Hybrid AF with improved speed, precision and tracking 
Fast Hybrid AF with improved speed, precision and tracking 
Using a combination of phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF, Fast Hybrid AF focuses precisely even on small subjects or on people posed in front of a nighttime background. A wide, dense AF area covers roughly 94% of the image area for both still and movie shooting with 759
29
phase-detection points, while the contrast-detection AF system uses 425 points. This vast collection of data is analysed in real time by the latest powerful processing engine to achieve the AF system's impressive results. 
AI-based Real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking<sup>26</sup>
AI-based Real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking
30
The superior processing power of the BIONZ XR engine has led to improvements in both Real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking features. Improved face detection translates into 30% better eye-detection accuracy, while faster image processing yields higher accuracy when the subject is looking up, down, or sideways. Real-time Tracking allows you to select your subject and then leave tracking to the camera, relying on the latest subject recognition algorithm and high-speed analysis of spatial data by the processing engine.
Bird mode for Real-time Eye AF, now available in movies
Bird mode for Real-time Eye AF, now available in movies
The Real-time Eye AF function is now capable of detecting the eyes of birds and tracking them in real time, for both still shots and movies. The BIONZ XR engine runs optimised AF and tracking algorithms to ensure uninterrupted tracking even for birds in flight, whose movement is hard to predict. Once you've selected a bird, the camera will automatically detect and precisely track that bird's eye, whether the bird is perched or in flight.
AF control through touch operation
AF control through touch operation
Touch Tracking lets you select a subject to track simply by touching the LCD screen, even while using the viewfinder, for more intuitive AF control for both still shots and movies. Easier focus operation is particularly helpful when you're shooting movies alone or using a gimbal, allowing you to concentrate on composing your shots. 
AF Assist for seamless transitions to manual focus<sup>28</sup>
AF Assist for seamless transitions to manual focus
32
The AF Assist function, inherited from the Cinema Line FX6, lets you seamlessly switch to and from manual focus during movie shoots. When this feature has been turned on, rotating the focus ring temporarily switches operation from autofocus to manual focus to allow you to deliberately shift your focus to a different subject.
Visualise depth of field during movie shoots with Focus Map<sup>29</sup>
Visualise depth of field during movie shoots with Focus Map
33
The new Focus Map
34
overlays focus information onto a live real-time display to show which areas are in or out of focus. Being able to clearly visualise depth of field in this way makes it easier to quickly set up your ideal focus point and depth of field during rehearsal. As a result you can use the camera's excellent video definition and fast lenses to create impressive shots with shallow depth of field. 
Breathing Compensation<sup>31</sup> for consistent angle of view when focusing 
Breathing Compensation
35
for consistent angle of view when focusing 
For the first time in the α series, the α7 IV provides compensation for focus breathing. Focus breathing is any change in a lens's angle of view that corresponds to changes in focus
36
. Sony's original Clear Image Zoom technology is used to automatically maintain a consistent angle of view, for more movie-like focus transitions. This feature can be used in conjunction with Active Mode image stabilisation to shoot stable, consistent imagery.
Still/Movie/S&Q dial for quick access to hybrid capabilities
Still/Movie/S&Q dial for quick access to hybrid capabilities
Befitting the α7 IV's status as a true hybrid camera, it comes equipped with a dedicated Still/Movie/S&Q dial to instantly switch between movies and stills. The dial switches the menus, functions, and custom settings of various controls between still and movie mode, and settings such as aperture and shutter speed are also maintained separately for stills and movies. S&Q mode can also be selected, for fast access to slow-motion or quick-motion shooting. 
The latest mode-specific menus and customisable Rear dial R
The latest mode-specific menus and customisable Rear dial R
The α7 IV's menus are specific to either stills or movies, and for easier navigation menus are configured to show three levels of hierarchy at once. Separate functions for stills and for movies can be assigned to various buttons and dials, including the new, freely customisable Rear dial R. With controls tailored to whichever shooting mode you are currently using, the flexible access provided by the Rear dial R contributes to greatly enhanced still and movie shooting efficiency.

Instant real-time live streaming via USB connection 
Instant real-time live streaming via USB connection 
Live streaming is as easy as connecting to a computer through a USB connection, and you can choose from four different output formats, including high-resolution 4K video
41
. You can select whichever configuration is best for current network conditions and the devices used, and simultaneous internal recording is also available, giving you broad flexibility to cover a wide variety of needs. 
High-capacity Z batteries and USB Power Delivery<sup>38</sup> 
High-capacity Z batteries and USB Power Delivery
42
 
The α7 IV relies on a high-capacity Z battery (NP-FZ100), along with external power options that include USB power supplies
43
and AC adaptors. Battery drain can be minimised by adding a high-capacity mobile battery for outdoor shooting. A USB charger or mobile battery that supports USB PD
44
can be connected to the camera's USB Type-C® port, for extended recording. 
Heat management
Heat management
To allow extended continuous recording, efficient heat dissipation is provided by Sony's proprietary Σ (sigma)-shaped thermal mounting. The mounting, which is also used on flagship models, is constructed from a graphite material with excellent thermal conduction properties. This structure allows the image sensor, a major source of heat inside the camera body, to move freely during image stabilisation while heat is efficiently dissipated.
Dual media slots, with CFexpress Type A support
Dual media slots, with CFexpress Type A support
Dual media slots allow you to continue shooting even if one memory card fills up. One of the slots supports high-performance CFexpress Type A cards
45
, and both slots support UHS-I and UHS-II SDXC/SDHC cards. With their fast write speeds, CFexpress Type A cards are particularly suited to high-speed continuous still shooting as well as high-resolution, high-bitrate 4K movie recording.
