Prior to its introduction, Sony Artisan Paul Nicklen took the new Sony α7R IV to Tofino, British Columbia, where he photographed a wide variety of wildlife. See some of the images he captured and read what he had to say about using Sony’s newest mirrorless.

“If someone had told me a year ago that I could shoot 60+ megapixel images at 10 frames a second on super sharp lenses, I wouldn’t have believed it.” – Paul Nicklen on the Sony α7R IV

"I have had the pleasure of testing the new Sony α7R IV, Sony 600mm f/4 G Master and the Sony 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G lenses,” says Nicklen. “What better place to test this combination than Tofino, British Columbia, where we found bears, seals, sea otters, dolphins, whales, sea lions, and my friends’ really cool wolf/dog Cyper. I have never been a gear head when it comes to photographic equipment. I just care about the results. I want to shoot powerful imagery that will connect the world to the places and species that I hold dear."

"If someone had told me a year ago that I could shoot 60+ megapixel images at 10 frames a second on super sharp lenses, I wouldn’t have believed it. As a wildlife photographer, the most important thing is for people to look into the eyes of animals, feel a connection and care. Well, this little powerhouse camera has an animal eye-tracking feature, and it did a marvelous job of locking onto their eyes so I could focus on composition. We have arrived at an exciting place in photography, and I feel privileged to be on this journey with all of you."
