SONY A7 II Features

Sony Alpha a7II is an advanced mirrorless Sony full-frame digital camera with a 23.3-megapixel 35mm sensor and a host of features designed to appeal to professional photographers and photo enthusiasts. It is the world's first full-frame camera with optical five-axis image stabilization, and boasts improvements in both design and autofocus speed. The shutter release, grip and control layout has been updated, the lens mount is now all metal, and the camera is sealed against moisture and dust. The a7II also features a fast Hybrid AF system that boasts a 305 improvement in focusing speed, a 5fps burst rate, and continuous autofocus. It is rapidly becoming the camera of choice for photojournalists as well as aspiring videographers.

What you should know about this camera

• 24.3MP sensor: The a7II's full-frame 35mm-sized sensor captures 24.3-megapixel still images and full HD video. ISO range is 100-25,600, with 16-bit image processing and 14-bit RAW output to preserve fine image detail.

• Fast Hybrid Autofocus: The camera relies on an advanced autofocus system with 117 phase-detection and 25 contrast-detection AF points covering a wide area of the frame. Focus is fast and accurate via an advanced algorithm, and can track fast-moving subjects through the frame. Frame rates are up to 5fps in continuous AF, and when you shoot in JPEG Fine L format burst rate is up to 77 frames.

• 5-Axis Image Stabilization: The a711 houses an all-new 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for five types of camera shakes, with a roughly 4.5-stop shutter speed gain. The IS system compensates for pitch and yaw adjustments (well-suited for longer focal lengths), horizontal and vertical shift (more common in macro photography) and roll, which is especially helpful when shooting video. Even better: You can preview the effect of the image stabilization by simply pressing the shutter release button halfway or magnifying the image.

• Vivid video: This camera features high bit-rate XAVC S format HD video with 60, 30 and 24p recording options at 50 Mbps. Picture profiles can be adjusted, and now include S-Log2 gamma setting with a dynamic range of 1,300% of sRGB.

• Big, sharp LCD, EVF: The a7II features one of the highest-resolution eye-level viewfinders on the market, a 2.36 million-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF, and a high-resolution 3-inch 1, 228.8k-dot tilting LCD monitor that tilts up 107 degrees and down 41 degrees, ideal for reviewing videos and photos.

• A really talented shoe: The Multi-Interface shoe can be used to house a flash, microphone, and other accessories.

• A better body: The camera is constructed from a magnesium alloy top and front cover and chassis; the lens mount has been strengthened, and the entire body has been sealed against dust and moisture.

Carry-Over features

• Other than the above changes, the a7 II offers pretty much the same stellar feature set as the a7, including:

• 1200-zone Evaluative Metering: You can choose from multi-segment, center-weighted or spot metering.

• Area-Specific Noise Reduction: The image processing engine selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and flat areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction for each area to reduce noise.

• Multi-frame noise reduction: The a7 II composites four shots to suppress noise and raise effective sensitivity in low light without a flash, while the D-range Optimizer helps coax details out of shadows and highlights of contrasty scenes in one shot.

• 16-bit image processing, 14-bit RAW output: 16-bit image processing and 14-bit RAW output help preserve maximum detail and produce images of the highest quality with rich tonal gradations. The 14-bit RAW (Sony ARW) format ensures optimal quality for later image adjustment (via Image Data Converter or other software).

• In-camera RAW converter: Lets you adjust exposure, white balance, tonal curves, saturation, contrast, hue, sharpness, or apply D-Range Optimizer or vignetting compensation. "
