Sony has just unveiled a feature that could potentially transform the landscape of photography. The tech giant is set to release a Custom Gridline License starting with the Sony A7 IV in March 2024, with plans to extend the innovation to more camera bodies in the future.

Users of one of the best Sony cameras will be able to import up to four personalized gridlines, giving photographers more creative control and precision. These gridlines can be seamlessly displayed on both the electronic viewfinder and the rear LCD monitor during shooting, and will help deliver a new level of consistency and professionalism in image capture.
