35mm full-frame Image Sensor, 4K Video Recording and a 5-Axis Image Stabilisation System - the Sony a7R II takes image resolution, sensitivity and speedy response to new heights. Full-frame E (FE) mount.
*NB Rolling Shutter Effect: Image distortion can occur for stills and video when using the electronic shutter. To minimize the possibility of image quality issues, we would suggest considering use of the mechanical shutter. More details can be foundHERE, regarding the improved performance with the a9.
**NB: his camera records 4K UHD, not Cinema 4K / DCI. For more information about what this means, please click HERE
World's first1 back-illuminated full-frame sensor
Higher resolution, sensitivity, and readout speed
As the world's first1 35 mm full-frame image sensor with back-illuminated structure, this 42.4-megapixel CMOS sensor enhances light collection efficiency, expands circuitry scale, and, with the help of a quick-transmission copper wiring layer, outputs data about 3.5 times faster, while minimizing image noise to reveal fine details in every picture.
Faster, smarter, truer processing The BIONZ XTM image processing engine efficiently and finely tunes the new image sensor's vast 42.4-megapixel data, for truer, clearer, more natural, low-noise image depiction.
Clearer, more vibrant images, Advanced features raise resolution even higher Great performance achieves its full potential accompanied by an array of innovative features. With an outstanding 42.4-megapixel count, the new image sensor in the α7R II lets you explore the world in remarkable detail and the camera employs no optical low-pass filter that can compromise high resolution. To reduce image blur, the camera's newly developed reduced-vibration shutter minimizes and Silent Shooting mode eliminates camera shake caused by shutter movement. And a growing family of FE lenses lets you witness more of the incomparable clarity that the sensor delivers from every perspective.
Make every shot look sharper Without an optical low-pass filter that can compromise image clarity, the α7R II lets you take full advantage of the high-resolution image sensor and superior resolving power of α lenses.
Fast Hybrid AF sharpens up Thanks to an advanced image sensor and AF algorithm, the α7R II's Fast Hybrid AF system delivers far superior AF coverage, speed and tracking performance.
More comprehensive AF coverage 399 AF points cover 45% of the total image area — more than any other digital camera can match.
More speedy AF response Accelerated data readout (thanks to back-illuminated sensor) and the Fast Hybrid AF system raise AF speed by 40%.
More continuous shooting capability Fast readout and advanced algorithm make predictive subject tracking extra-precise for 5fps shooting.
Fast Hybrid AF for movies This system's extra-precise, smooth focusing perfectly suits the higher requirements of 4K movies.
Phase-detection AF with A-mount lens Advantages of the phase-detection AF are assured even with an A-mount lens mounted via LA-EA3 (LA-EA19).
5-axis image stabilization in full-frame glory, Fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors To optimize the benefit of the α7R II's amazing high-resolution capability, especially when shooting unpredictable action or while you're in motion, the act of shooting should be as steady as possible — otherwise, even slight camera shake can risk blurring the shot. The 5-axis image stabilization system is carefully fine-tuned to match the 42.4-megapixel performance of the α7R II, so you can zoom in on faraway subjects, shoot close-ups and capture night scenes with minimal camera shake blur to achieve maximum clarity.
Neutralizing all kinds of camera shake Compensation for five types of camera shake and minimal blur even in night shots show how the α7R II clearly makes the most of the image sensor's 42.4-megapixel resolution.
4K movie quality hits an all-time high, The ultimate high-resolution movie experience You can see how the α7R II is optimized for recording 4K (QFHD: 3,840 x 2,160) movies, particularly in Super 35 mm format, as it processes readout data from every pixel without pixel binning, to effectively suppress jaggies and moiré. The resulting footage exhibits visibly sharper, finer, more subtle detail than typical 4K movies. Also, as the first full-frame camera that can record movies at 4K resolution in the 35 mm full-frame format, the α7R II extends your power to express qualities of vision that the newly developed, back-illuminated full-frame image sensor makes possible.
Frame as you see fit, Shoot footage in proper perspective Select full-frame or Super 35 mm format when shooting in Full HD or 4K resolution, depending on your creative intentions. Either way, everything looks brilliant from edge to edge.
High-bit-rate XAVC S format10 XAVC S format now supports 4K recording at maximum 100 Mbps bit rate as well as Full HD recording at 50 Mbps, so the α7R II can capture movies filled with finely detailed movement.
Ready for the long run, Focus on strength, smarts and reliability The α7R II is the toughest, most durable α camera ever made, solidly engineered for action under all conditions, even with large lenses attached. It's also designed with sophistication, integrating advanced functions that seamlessly complement the image sensor's extraordinary 42.4-megapixel high resolution
