Sony Alpha 7 IV: specs and features

There’s also support for advanced autofocus capabilities, which support real-time tracking (can track bird and animal eyes) and are 30% improved over the previous camera.

33MP resolution is supported to change the meaning of what a “basic” camera can do. The 33-megapixel full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor achieves better detail and less noise.
