A7Rii 4k 60fps mode?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the A7Rii and I was wondering if its able to do 4k video in anything higher than 30fps. Is there a possible firmware update that will allow this? 

Apologies for the simple question, I am new to Sony Cameras and shooting video in general.

The short answer is: No, not now, and there never will be.  It's a hardware limitation of the camera, which can't be overcome by software/firmware. You are asking for something which even the A9 can't deliver.

Basically the intended resolution (i.e. 4K) times the frame rate (i.e. 30fps) yields a data rate. And there is a maximum data rate at which the camera can output a data stream. For both A7R2 and A9 this is 100MB/s. If you prefer a higher frame rate, you will have to reduce the resolution of the video. There are many video modes on the A7R2 which allow higher frame rates, just not @4K. See this, for more detail. Sections "Recording (movie)", headings " Image Size (pixels), NTSC* " and " Image Size (pixels), PAL", respectively.
