Sony ⍺7 IV

The Sony a7 IV is what I use to produce all of my YouTube @chantastic and @chromaticui.

1-year vibe

Sony cameras are a mixed bag.
I think that their color still sucks and their UI ergonomics are terrible.

But the a7 IV — specfically — as a a problem solver camera.

  • 4k recording for both full frame and aps-c crops
  • In-camera 10-bit, 4:2:2 recording quality
  • Multi Interface Shoe equiped (for use with XLR mics)


This is a work camera.

Unlike my GR III, which produces beatuful .jpgs, right out of camera, every time… sony requires you to work for it.

I don’t reach for this camera if I’m not doing work. The ergonomics are uninspiring. The out-of-camera colors are terrible. And most of the available lenses have this terrible clinical look.
