    Copy what competitors do better ….. 🙂

  2. Eric Me on March 1, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    My last lens 85mm

  3. Brad L on March 1, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    The lack of closed shutter is a huge deal for me. Way too many dirty sensor experiences.

  4. ChAoS3sixO on March 1, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    A7RII Ibis causes cameras to fail constantly. Sony UK say not covered under warranty. Apparently user fault. Do not buy. Look up ibis lock/shutdown. I only found out after it was too late. Share and tell everyone. Less than 10k actuations. Bad buy my bad. :(. This camera also has ibis 🙁 camera takes decent pictures when it works. Unfortunately massively let down buy Sony aftercare.

  5. Maximus Prometheus on March 1, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Better battery life.

  6. Arman Ahmadian on March 1, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I hate the flip to the side screen. I hope they do flip up.

  7. Mason on March 1, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Were you disappointed with the A7C?

  8. The Cameralust on March 1, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    4k 60fps

  9. Inderveer Johal on March 1, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    I think anything more than $2000 would be an insult. Look at what Apple are doing with their technology bumps this for the same money or less price than the previous models… masssive Performance improvements. Surely the right model for technology companies should be to increase performance and value at the same price point as the manufacturing of these technologies is always decreasing with time…

  10. Q Tube on March 1, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    If you had to guess, when do you think its coming out?

  11. Mad Cooper on March 1, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    $2200 pliss

  12. Paul C on March 1, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    OK Stefan – This wasn’t a "leaked specs & rumors" video, it was your "wish list". There was no new information.

  13. Tristan Müller on March 1, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    In my Opinion the Camera needs:
    1. the Flip out Screen
    2. EVF of 5mio or more/Screen of 1mio plus (oled and truetone)
    3. two Fast Slots
    4. higher framerate
    5. it needs to have the Option to trigger by smiling or by sound (with delay and sensitivity settings for the sound or for smiling)
    6. at least 4K 60p (down sampled Form 6k) or higher
    7. the rest which Stefan mentioned.

    If the Camera Misses only one point, sony should let ist be or drop the price to 2.000€.
    If the camera does have all the features a price around 2.200€ would be ok.

  14. Julien Sabadinowitsch on March 1, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    I would pay a thousend because i have a damn low budged :/

  15. sirBumpyCase on March 1, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I would like It to be less than $2800 US because I want it to be worth skipping over the A7 III entirely for new users of the Sony mirrorless system.

  16. Michael Mourek on March 1, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    3 year old Sony a7 111 – should be replaced in the 1st quarter of 2021 – not the 3rd quarter – TIME is money – Canon and Nikon want in – true

  17. Jeff on March 1, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Nice vid but i got a few hard questions in terms of upgrades: 1. why more mp (99% of the shots we see online never get printed larger than A2 or larger)on a 35mm sensor when you get better iso performance und better imagequality with less but bigger pixels? And 2. why more frames a second for an entry lvl hybrid cam ?(entry lvl means to me that people learning photography so whats the point in enabling these mostly young shooters in a run and gun luck based photography instead of Imitate them and teaching them a more aware and skill based style of shooting)

  18. David Atkinson on March 1, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Fully articulated LCD. I sooooo missed this, and still do, when I went from my a77 to my a7ii

  19. kostas restas on March 1, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    10 bit 4 2 2 is must for me

  20. spah89 on March 1, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    All I want is:

    -Fully articulated screen
    -10 bit video
    -New menu system
    -Better touch screen features
    -Sensor shutter

  21. Jayno van der Hulst on March 1, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    You are asking 6000 dollars worth of improvements for a reasonable prise……..

  22. Studio-21 Photography & Videography on March 1, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    pls pls im dreaming of winning the adapter

  23. nubscrub on March 1, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Although nice, I find your wishlist on the budget entry full frame camera unrealistic. It seems that what you are looking for is a different segment camera.

  24. Seth's Project Woodworking on March 1, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    As a sony a7iii owner. The only thing that I feel like I’m missing is 10-bit. If the a7iii had 10-bit it would be the only camera that checks every single box for me.

  25. Andrey Sitdikov on March 1, 2021 at 10:58 pm


  26. Dariusz Skoraczewski on March 1, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Awesome video! Any word on the timeframe?

  27. la chambre noire de Goupil on March 1, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    with ipb 10bit 4.2.2 doesn’t need cf express a and all-I on the a7sIII need sd v90 just the all-i 4k 120p need af express a

  28. OneEyedPhotographer on March 1, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Weather sealing?
    No overheating in a Sony?

    How’s the support when things go wrong these days?

  29. Ralph Bank on March 1, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    For me the photo functionality is most important, would be great if they add the fully articulated screen, better IBIS and maybe lossless RAW compression. Also I use the LCD screen more often than the EVF, so I would prefer improved resolution for the screen. I enjoy your videos Stefan, thanks!

  30. Stefan Malloch on March 1, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    What are the specs that would make you buy it?

  31. angelisone on March 1, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Sony is on the right track due to 20 years photography of being almost extinct.
    Making camera/lenses for cheapskates, beginners and amateurs.

  32. Jeff Corcelius on March 1, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    I bet some reviewers already have the preproduction model. a few have already hinted they received a package that’s on an embargo.

  33. Martinova krypto poradna on March 1, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    The only reason for not buying A7C today is that I’m hoping for the A7IV to have a fully articulating screen. I hope Sony doesn’t disappoint.

  34. Its Pinecone on March 1, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    The CF Express Type A memory cards are way to expensive and the Type Bs have more memory and faster speeds at a good price. I dont know why they doing type A CFexpress cards.

  35. Emmauel-Alexander Ayala on March 1, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Don’t need cf card for 4K 60

    And I want 240 1080p we already have 120 1080p

  36. Rexston Chua on March 1, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Just recently got into the photography game. Have a 24-70 F2.8, would be amazing to add a 85, F1.8 to my kit!!

  37. Christopher Thompson on March 1, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Really nicely put together video. Thanks. Re A7IV – please – no fully articulating screen… Not great for stills shooters: street – too intrusive, landscape – L-bracket won’t fit, etc. Just sold my X-T4 and went back to an X-T3 for just that reason.

  38. Darwinsown on March 1, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Dual SD cards – I’m happy with 8 bit for my workflow. If I want 10 bit then there’s the A7Siii.

  39. Mikee Dudz on March 1, 2021 at 11:12 pm


  40. cleansurf2 on March 1, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Focus bracketing, come on Sony, it should be doable in the firmware for all the models.

  41. Michael Mourek on March 1, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Sony must move FASTER – by the 3rd quarter of 2021 – Canon will be #1 – true

  42. MeisterFoSho on March 1, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    $1998, why do you think they dropped $300 on the A7 iii price

  43. Mauro Bonapace on March 1, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    No internal 10bits? even 4:2:0 in 4k? less than 6 (real) stops IBIS, usable for videos? @2499USD I don’t bother.

  44. Oliver Arias on March 1, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    These are basically the same specs as the A7siii…
    I just want Sony to come out with a 6K mirrorless camera!

  45. Sandro on March 1, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    I just bought the A7C while I wait for the A7IV.
    Flippy screen, 4K 10bit 4:2:2 internal, a7SIII menu system and I’m sold.
