Sony has launched the new A7R IV full-frame mirrorless camera
The A7R IV up the resolution to an incredible 61MP. According to Sony, this is the first 35mm full-frame back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with this resolution. The back-illuminated design will help reduce noise and increase sensitivity.
The sensor boasts 15-stops of dynamic range for smoother color gradation. There's also a 5-axis optical in-body image stabilization.
To go along with the new sensor is a new 5.76 million dot UXGA OLED EVF, which has a 1.6x the resolution of the EVF on the A7R III. It can be set to standard or high image quality mode with a choice of 60fps or 120fps refresh rate.
There's also an improved Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode available, which can stack 16 full-resolution images to create 963.2MP of data, which is then composited into a 240.8MP image using Sony's desktop application. This allows you to get even higher resolution of stationary subjects.
The A7R IV can shoot full resolution 61MP images at 10fps with continuous AF/AE tracking for up to 7 seconds and about three times as long in 26.2MP APS-C mode. There are 567 phase detection AF points that cover 74% of the image area along with additional 425 contrast AF points. The camera also features real time eye AF that keeps the focus locked even if the subject moves around or looks away.
For video production, the A7R IV supports 4K video recording that uses the full width of the sensor with full pixel readout without pixel binning in the Super 35mm mode. Sony's S-Log 2 and S-Log 3 modes are also available for color grading with 14-stops of dynamic range available in S-Log 3. HLG is supported for an HDR workflow.
The A7R IV also features eye tracking AF for video for the first time in a Sony camera. This allows the camera to track focus on the subject while the video is being recorded and always keep the eyes in focus.

Well at the price you quote it would have to rock something for me
but if suitable for the professional user great @TheGreyApe
My family have always had a very keen interest in cameras ~
I don't know whether it was the camera or the technology the
capability, the lenses and all of it ~
what I can say is that no one was terribly interested in photos!? LOL
Film Cameras ~ The cannon and The Pentax this one had several lenses
all in seperate bags how cumbersome all that for the odd photo
here and there ~ and an auto very expensive Minolta with fixed lens,
no one liked it much ~ I then carried on the interest or tradition in cameras!
2003 I bought techy camera with XD picture card (still got it) cost £500 Olympus Camedia
supposed to be the latest kit This was very neat could carry this around and snap
happy and on card so could sort out without the huge expense of film/processing.
This brought photography to me. Actually it took a very good photo. Albeit expensive
at the time liked it.
Then I bought the Nikon D5000 DSLR ~ I was then interested in photos!
A very close up Macro lens which cost the same as the camera body!
The Standard lens was very good for general use. I think you mentioned heavy.
And there it endeth ~ now I have a Samsung Galaxy A70 mobile phone
with a camera that gives and produces without the bother ~ you know manual adjustments
the aperture size, the speed and all the rest of it before you could get the photo with those
Film Cameras ~ even though some did have auto it was the skill wasn't it?
What's more the bee or butterfly will have had two life cycles before I could snap it with
my very expensive heavy film camera (That's if I hadn't run out of film).

@TallTrees I used the 750D ( i think ) when I was doing A-Levels a few years back and then from that I wanted to invest in my own camera that was equal in both Photography and Videography as I run a company interviewing artists Revealed NI Facebook
on there you can see the video link to the recent shoot I done, If you check it out let me know what you think!

The video facility is the most useful addition to the cameras, even my mobile does very nice videos.
I bought a Panasonic Camcorder great but don't need it now ~ phone is everywhere with me
so can just pick it up and behold!
I looked at your Site on NI Facebook ~ I don't subscribe to FB or others so couldn't continue.
It is great looking though (before I got cut off!)
The photography and videography is perfect for your application.
Thanks for the info @TheGreyApe
well wishes for more success with all your endeavours TallTrees
