Sony A7R V: BIONZ XR Processor, As Fast as A7R4


It was reported that Sony will launch at least three cameras in 2022, including the A9M3, A7R5, and an unknown model, but the details are unknown. They received a leak about the Sony A7R V, and the specs of the new sensor have now been revealed.

According to reports, the Sony A7R V will use a newly developed 61-megapixel sensor, with a readout speed up to twice that of the A7R4; uncompressed RAW or lossless compressed RAW continuous shooting support (10 frames per second); BIONZ XR processor; support pixel Offset multi-frame composition; 9.44 million-dot electronic viewfinder; 2.36 million-dot 3-inch touchscreen; 8K30P (9.6K oversampling)/4K60P (oversampling in both full-frame and S35 modes) and FHD120P recording.
