Sony A7R V in Review: Underwater in Raja Ampat
This year's top underwater camera is the Sony A7R V. The A7R V is Sony's response to the market-leading Canon EOS R5 as a worthy successor to the A7R IV. The Sony A7R V has the same ultra-high resolution 61 megapixel sensor as the A7R IV and is priced similarly to the Canon R5 at $3898 for the body. A new AI autofocus processor, 8K/24p & 4K/60p video recording, and better 5-axis in-body image stabilization are a few of the camera's notable improvements. With these capabilities, the camera will certainly be able to compete in the high-end professional market.
With great excitement we were able to take the SonyA7R V on our latest Bluewater Travel photoworkshop in Raja Ampat. The results speak for themselves.
