Sony launches itshighest resolution full-frame camera so far

The Sony A7R IV is the world’s highest resolution 35mm full- frame camera. Its imaging sensor is a newly developed design; a 61-megapixel back- illuminated Exmor R CMOS unit working with Sony’s latest BIONZ X image processor. The sensor’s new structure and noise-reduction techniques work together to give a lownoise performance even at high ISO settings. The native ISO range is 100 to 32,000 with expansion to 102,400 available.

The A7R IV is available this August and costs £3500 body only or £4500 for the camera complete with a 24-105mm G OSS lens. Sony has also unveiled the Cyber-shot RX100 VII, a 20.1-megapixel, zoom lens, premium compact featuring advanced technologies to give a performance at the level of the brand’s flagship, the A9. The RX100 VII will be in the shops at £1200.

Sigma has launched the world’s smallest full-frame mirrorless camera. The Sigma fp 24.6-megapixel camera uses a conventional Bayer sensor and weighs in at just 422g body only. As well as stills shooting it offers 4K video capture too. It’s the brand’s first L-Mount camera – Sigma is one of the three members of the L-Mount alliance. And speaking of lenses, Sigma has also announced three new lenses this month including its first 35mm prime with a superfast f/1.2 aperture. Sigma sensation
