Sony Quietly Launches a7R IIIa and a7R IVa Mirrorless Cameras

Sony has quietly launched new versions of its a7R III and a7R IV cameras that feature some small cosmetic changes along with noticeable improvements to specific hardware. The new cameras have a new "a" added to the official product name that differentiates them from the originals.

Super Resolution Eliminates the Advantage of High-Megapixel Cameras

The megapixel race has picked up steam lately with most new models exceeding 45-megapixels and rumors circulating of 100-megapixel sensors on the horizon.

It has been a while since we talked about Sony A-mount. The A99 II felt like the last hurrah for the format when it was announced, and seeing continued support in any way probably wasn't necessary from Sony, who has clearly moved on to the E-mount.

The comments were filled with complaints (valid and otherwise) about how they'd handled the test, and so they decided to address some of those concerns and run a whole new test.

Over the past few weeks, a ton of reviewers have been comparing the new Canon EOS R5 against the new Sony a7S III, but for stills shooters this is the wrong comparison.

This Incredible ‘MoonWalk’ Photo Was Captured in a Single Shot
