Sony a7C vs Sony A7R IV Comparison

The Sony A7c and A7R 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 A7R IV is a camera in the Pro Mirrorless class.

The Sony A7c will hit the market in September 2020, while the Sony A7R IV will hit the market in July of this year. Because there is a 14-month gap between the A7c and the A7R IV, we don’t anticipate seeing a significant technical difference between the two cameras; nonetheless, the younger A7c will have an edge in sensor technology, which will be particularly important.

Because, despite the fact that these two cameras do not have the exact same body type, they are both ranked among the top ten cameras in their respective classes, this will be an exciting matchup. Sony A7c is ranked #1 out of 53 Advanced Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 87, whilst Sony A7R IV is ranked #5 out of 59 Pro Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 97. Sony A7R IV is ranked #1 out of 53 Advanced Mirrorless cameras with an overall score of 87.
