About the Sony Alpha a7R V (no lens included)

Mirrorless precision with 8K video and advanced AI-driven autofocus

Sony continues to evolve its high-performance Alpha a7 line with the a7R V. This full-frame mirrorless camera has nearly double the resolution of its predecessor, the a7 IV, and includes powerful AI-based autofocus processing.

Mirrorless precision with 8K video and advanced AI-driven autofocus

Sony continues to evolve its high-performance Alpha a7 line with the a7R V. This full-frame mirrorless camera has nearly double the resolution of its predecessor, the a7 IV, and includes powerful AI-based autofocus processing.

It's also got updated in-body image stabilization with up to eight stops of shake correction. You'll get clear, detailed, low-noise resolution in your still shots, along with better movement- and eye-tracking when you're shooting video — in 8K at up to 24 frames per second.

Built for the elements

Sony equipped the Alpha a7R V with a rugged magnesium-alloy body that's weather-sealed against dust and moisture. Use it with confidence to capture photos and videos at weddings, sporting events, and other fun outdoor activities.

Pair it with premium glass for the best image quality

A built-in perk of the a7R V: you'll be able to take advantage of Sony's outstanding lineup of E-mount lenses.

Sony makes some of the best optical elements on the planet, and their E-mount lenses (especially their higher-end glass) are world-famous for their light-gathering abilities and quick, ultra-sharp focusing. It's a big part of why Crutchfield's video studio shoots exclusively with Sony cameras.

It's worth noting that this "body only" configuration does not come with a lens in the box. Check out our article on choosing camera lenses to find the right one for you.

SDXC V90 or higher
Note: Slow-motion and Quick-motion movies recorded at 250Mbps or higher must use a CFexpress Type A (VPG200 or higher) or SDXC V60 or V90 or higher memory card.

Focus Modes: The α7R V's Fast Intelligent auto focus system combines the high-speed BIONZ X image processor and improved algorithms with optimized image sensor read-out speed to provide ultra-fast auto focusing. You can choose from the following Auto/Manual Focus Modes:

  • AF-S (Single-shot Auto focus): The camera focuses and the focus is locked when you press the shutter button halfway down. Recommended for use with motionless subjects.
  • AF-A (Automatic Auto focus): The camera locks the focus when it determines that the subject is motionless, or continues to focus when the subject is in motion. During continuous shooting, the camera automatically shoots with Continuous AF from the second shot.
  • AF-C (Continuous Auto focus): The camera continues to focus while the shutter button is pressed and held halfway. Recommended for use when the subject is in motion.
  • Direct Manual Focus (DMF): After focusing automatically, you can make fine focusing adjustments manually by turning the focus ring on the lens.
  • Manual Focus: When it is difficult to get the proper focus in auto focus mode, you can adjust the focus manually. This mode allows you to set the distance of a subject by rotating the focusing ring to achieve a sharp focus.

AF (Auto focus) Area: The α7R V features 693 focus points for phase-detection auto focusing in full frame mode with a full frame lens, covering 79% of the frame. In APS-C mode it has 693 points with full frame lens and 567 points with APS-C lens. You can select between 6 settings:

  • Wide: The camera focuses automatically on a subject in all ranges of the image.
  • Zone: You can select a zone on the monitor on which to focus.
  • Center Fix: The camera uses the AF area located in the center area exclusively.
  • Flexible Spot: You can change the size of and move the focusing area in order to focus on a small subject or narrow area. You can select Small, Medium, or Large spot size.
  • Expand Flexible Spot: If focus isn't possible on the single selected point, it uses focus points around the flexible spot as a secondary focus area to facilitate focus.
  • Tracking: When the shutter button is pressed halfway, the camera tracks the subject within the select AF area. You can select the desired tracking start area by designating the area as a flexible spot or an expanding flexible spot.

Subject Recognition: New state-of-the-art AI processing uses detailed information about different types of subjects to dramatically improve the camera's ability to recognize subjects. Selectable Subject Recognition AF settings include: human (left/right eye select), animal (left/right eye select), Bird, Insect, Car-Train, and Airplanes.

Face Detection: The camera can detect human faces, and adjusts the focus, exposure, performs image processing and adjusts flash settings for best results. Faces can be registered, and priority given to those faces over others in the frame. Up to 7 faces can be detected and/or registered.

AF Illuminator: When you press the shutter button halfway down a red illuminator is emitted until the focus is locked. Under dark lighting conditions or when you shoot a low contrast subject, the AF illuminator allows the camera to focus more easily on the subject. The AF illuminator has a range of 0.99' to 9.8' (with FE 28-70mm lens).

In-body Stabilization: The α7R V is equipped with a more powerful sensor-shift-type in-body image stabilization system to reduce the effect of camera shake. This system is carefully fine-tuned to match the 61.0-megapixel performance of the camera, allowing you to photograph faraway objects without the blur of camera shake. It features 5-axis compensation with an effect equivalent to 8 stops faster shutter speed. It can compensate for camera shake in the following ways: pitch, yaw, X-axis, Y-axis, and roll. In addition to in-body stabilization, compatible lenses with Optical Steady Shot (OSS) coordinate with the camera body for highly effective image stabilization control.

Drive Modes: The camera offers the following shooting modes: Single shooting, Continuous Shooting, Self-timer, Self-timer Continuous, and Bracketing (continuous, single, white balance, and DRO).

Continuous Shooting: The camera can record still images continuously while the shutter release button is held down. You can select from the following speeds: Hi+ (10 fps), Hi (8 fps), Mid (6 fps), and Low (3 fps). The maximum number of recordable frames at Large (60M) are:

  • JPEG/HEIF (Fine): 1000+ images
  • RAW (Compressed): 583 images
  • RAW+JPEG / RAW+HEIF (Compressed): 184 images
  • RAW (Uncompressed): 135 images
  • RAW+JPEG / RAW+HEIF (Uncompressed): 88 images
  • RAW (Lossless compression): 574 images
  • RAW+JPEG / RAW+HEIF (Lossless compression): 159 images

Self-Timer: You can set the camera to several self-timer settings:

  • 10 Second: After you press the shutter button, the shutter will be released about 10 seconds later. This is convenient when the photographer wants to appear in a photo.
  • 2 Second: After you press the shutter button, the shutter will be released about 2 seconds later. This is convenient to reduce camera-shake.
  • Continuous Self-timer: The camera records 3 or 5 images continuously after a 10, 5, or a 2 second delay. You can choose the best shot from the multiple shots taken.
  • Bracketing Self-timer: The camera records multiple images, each with a different exposure, after a 10, 5, or 2 second delay.

Focus Bracketing: The camera can automatically shoot up to 299 images with sequentially shifted focus points. During setup, you can specify the step width (how much the focus is shifted- 1 to 10), and the number of shots with one release (2 to 299 for each position). After shooting, you can select the perfect shot, or post-process multiple shots to achieve creative composites with impossible focus depths.

Bracket Shooting: Bracket shooting allows you to shoot 2, 3, 5, 7, or 9 images, each with different degrees of exposure, white balance, flash intensity, and dynamic range. You can select the increment steps for each frame of the bracket.

Exposure Modes: The top-mounted Mode Dial lets you select from the following exposure modes:

  • iAuto (Intelligent Auto): This mode allows easy shooting with settings adjusted automatically using scene recognition.
  • Program Auto (P): For shooting with the exposure adjusted automatically (both the shutter speed and the aperture value), while allowing you to adjust other settings manually.
  • Aperture Priority (A): This mode allows you to shoot after adjusting the aperture value manually, letting the camera set the appropriate shutter speed. This mode gives you greater control over the depth of field.
  • Shutter Speed Priority (S): This mode allows you to shoot after adjusting the shutter speed manually, letting the camera set the appropriate aperture. You can choose a shutter speed of 1/8000 to 30 seconds for still images, or 1/8000 to 1/4 second for movies. With a high shutter speed, the moving subject appears as if it is frozen on the image. With a slow shutter speed, the moving subject appears as if it were flowing. Bulb photography is also available in this mode.
  • Manual Exposure (M): This mode allows you to shoot after adjusting the exposure (shutter speed and aperture) manually.
  • Memory Recall (1, 2, 3): You can register often-used camera settings (including Shooting Mode, Aperture, Shutter speed) in one of three memory positions on the Mode Dial for easy recall.

Exposure Compensation: Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera's standard exposure setting. You can make the image look lighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure) The exposure compensation amount can be set up to +/-3.0 EV in 1/3-step increments by turning the dial on the top of the camera or +/-5.0 EV in 1/3-step or 1/2-step increments in the menu.

Metering Mode: A 1200-zone evaluative sensing system provides multi-pattern measuring for superior exposure control accuracy in a wide range of lighting conditions. You can select the method for measuring the brightness of a subject from the following methods:

  • Multi Segment: This method uses the whole screen divided into 1200 zones to measure light.
  • Center Weighted: While emphasizing the central area of the screen, this method measure the average brightness of the entire screen.
  • Spot: This method measure light only in the spot metering circle in the center of the frame.
  • Entire Screen Average: Measures the average brightness of the entire screen.
  • Highlight: Measures the brightness while emphasizing the highlighted area on the screen.

White Balance: You can adjust the color tones according to the lighting conditions. You can choose from the following WB options, and adjust the +/- 3 to fine tune the colors: Auto WB, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Incandescent, Fluorescent (Warm White), Fluorescent (Cool White), Fluorescent (Day White), Fluorescent (Daylight), Flash, Color Temperature, Color Filter, Underwater, and Custom.

Color Temperature/Color Filter: You can adjust the white balance further by selecting Color Temperature or Color Filter in the Custom White Balance option. With Color Temperature, the higher the number, the more reddish the image, and the lower the number, the more bluish the image. Color Filter achieves the effect of Color Compensation filters for photography. Based on the set color temperature as the standard, the color can be compensated to Green (G) or Magenta (M).

ISO Settings: ISO is a unit of measurement of sensitivity to light. The larger the number, the higher the sensitivity. The camera's ISO can be set manually or automatically, depending upon the exposure mode. For still images, the sensitivity can be set to ISO 100 to 32,000, expandable to ISO 50-102,400.
