Front Row at the Alpha 7R V Launch

Alpha 7R V Launch

Alpha 7R V launched last week and I was front row for the reveal. The event started with Neal Manowitz, President and COO of Sony Electronics. After the launch, I shot with the new body for three days. I uploaded the full video to YouTube today.

Sony has developed an AI-based autofocus bringing its resolution model up to speed. The camera acts almost telepathically with you. It’s truly in the moment with technology and creativity and high rez.

Read the rest of my experience here and the specs are below particularly the buffer speed. Likewise, from what I understand, if you expect to shoot with the a7r5 this year preorder now from B&H or a retailer near you.
