Press release:

New Alpha 7 IV Firmware Update Enables Lossless RAW File Options and Improved Accuracy and Operability
SAN DIEGO, CA – August 23, 2022
– Sony Electronics Inc. today announced the v1.1 firmware update for the Alpha 7 IV full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, adding Lossless Compressed RAW in three sizes for still images, shutter speed and ISO setting retention, touch shutter function, improved Eye AF (autofocus) accuracy and more.

The update adds Lossless Compressed RAW files in S, M and L (small, medium or large) file sizes – a highly requested feature. Selecting L size preserves the same image quality as an uncompressed RAW format while significantly reducing the file size. The M and S sizes record fewer pixels than the L size, providing even smaller RAW file sizes.

Alpha 7 IV v1.1 allows photographers to retain shutter speed and ISO settings for flash photography. This newest update also offers a Touch Shutter Function and improves the accuracy of the Eye AF feature.

Other updates in the Alpha 7 IV v1.1 include:

  • The ability to record the camera's serial number in the metadata of video files
  • Improved operability of Wi-Fi connections
  • A one-minute setting added to Power Save by Monitor menu
  • The ability to brighten the viewfinder display according to the ambient brightness
  • Improved operational stability of the camera

Availability

Alpha 7IV v1.1 is available now and can be downloaded HERE.
