Sony a7C vs Sony a7 IV Comparison

The Sony A7c and A7 IV are two Mirrorless cameras that we will be comparing in this article. The Sony Alpha A7c is a camera in the Advanced Mirrorless class, whereas the Sony Alpha A7 IV is a camera in the Pro Mirrorless class.

The Sony A7c was brought on the market in September 2020, and the Sony A7 IV will be released in October 2021, according to Sony. Because there is a 13-month gap between the A7c and the A7 IV, we don’t anticipate seeing a significant technical difference between the two cameras; nonetheless, the younger A7 IV would still have an edge, particularly in terms of sensor technology.
