Dpreview stories:

Firmware V1.01 for the Sony a7 IV included the promise that it ‘improves the accuracy of the Eye AF function.’ Since this was one of many criticisms that held again the rating of our assessment, we re-tested the digicam to see whether or not the tendency to fractionally front-focus in eye AF mode has been resolved.

We confirmed with Sony that the replace was meant to handle Eye AF nevertheless it was activated; whether or not by assigning a button to the operate or by means of its automated use when ‘Face/Eye Precedence in AF’ is turned on.’

Having examined the digicam with a number of topics and a variety of lenses, we discovered the attention AF operate can nonetheless are likely to deal with eyelashes, quite than the topic’s pupil. It’s one thing you’ll solely are likely to see when taking pictures at pretty extensive apertures however we nonetheless discovered we may get higher outcomes with handbook focus.

We’ve included these findings in our assessment however can’t discover sufficient of an enchancment to revise our scoring.

In abstract: We want yet one more firmware replace Sony!
