SOME RAW IMAGES FROM THE SONY A7RIV - 9 AUGUST 2019
The camera feels superior the the A7RIII which is my current day-to-day camera and the EVF is also much superior.
As images were uploaded to Flicker they are no longer RAW. Also, for various reasons and because I am really only testing my workflow the photographs should not be taken as an indication as to how well the camera can perform.
Today I was invited to a hands on introduction to the Sony A7RIV and I was delighted to attend. But unfortunately the experience was not pleasant as the Sony rep was abrupt and unhelpful and as a result I decided not to pre-order the camera. That is not to say that I will not eventually purchase it. This is the second time in two years that this has happened to me when dealing with Sony staff ... I suspect that they do not wish to discuss details. The in-shop staff were more than helpful.
Other than ordering the camera the purpose of my visit was to determine if I could process RAW images and I can report that was able to process both RAW and JPG images but as many include portraits of people I was unable to publish them or I had to crop the images.
