Sony Alpha a7R IV Underwater Photos

Nirupam Nigam, editor-in-chief of Underwater Photography Guide and Bluewater Photo, took the full frame mirrorless Sony Alpha a7R IV camera out in our first housing off the line and got some amazing first impressions.

Sony gets a lot of credit in the photography world for innovating. But the truth is….they deserve it. The release of the Sony a7R IV was a complete bombshell. On paper, it puts Sony solidly at the top of the mirrorless camera market and potentially as one of the best underwater cameras available. And if you already thought the Sony a7R III was a top camera, well the a7R IV is almost 20 megapixels ahead. - Nirupam Nigam, Bluewater Photo Review

Nirupam was fully kitted up in gloves and drysuit while traveling from the Pacific Northwest to Isla Guadalupe. In these tough conditions, TTL strobe exposure with dual DS161 strobes was key to nailing both wide angle and macro shots. The DL2 DS Link Sony TTL Converter allows the camera to control flash exposure while the photographer focuses on composition and adjustment of camera settings like ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed, etc.

Our 200DL Underwater Housing for the Sony Alpha a7R IV # 71474 housing is designed to provide the ergonomics, performance, and professional accessories that you would expect of a much more expensive housing in a lightweight, highly durable, and travel-friendly package.
