Image Stabilization

A7R IV has 8 stops of in-body image stabilization which is not going to turn your camera into a handheld gimbal but at least if you’re shooting with a longer focal length that’s going to help you cut a lot of that shake or when you want to get a quick long exposure shot and you don’t have a tripod with you that a stop of in-body image stabilization is going to really help.
