Features

World’s first<sup>1</sup> Full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R<sup>®</sup> CMOS sensor with 42.4 megapixels

World’s first1 Full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R® CMOS sensor with 42.4 megapixels

The newly developed 35mm Exmor R® CMOS sensor is the world’s first full-frame sensor with back-illuminated structure. The structure combines gapless on-chip lens design and AR (anti-reflective) coating on the surface of the sensor's glass seal - with no low-pass filter - to dramatically improve light collection efficiency, even though the pixels are smaller than the ones in the α7R. Moreover, the wiring layer now uses copper (instead of aluminum) wiring for faster transmission speed2. The results are truly remarkable – with incredibly detailed 42.4 megapixel stills and 4k video with high sensitivity - up to ISO 102,4003, low-noise performance and wide dynamic range that are superior to previous models.

5-axis in-body image stabilization optimized for 42.4MP full-frame

The 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system is fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors. It accurately compensates for blur caused by camera shake from five different directions—vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw and roll—as opposed to only two in previous systems. The 5-axis image stabilizing system excels during video recording and even compensates for blur caused by the photographer walking or running. It’s a true marvel of engineering. You can even monitor the stabilizing effects of camera shake compensation in the viewfinder or LCD screen while shooting still images by pressing the shutter button halfway or magnifying the image, and while shooting movies by entering movie mode.

4K movie recording<sup>5</sup> with full pixel readout and no pixel binning

4K movie recording5 with full pixel readout and no pixel binning

The α7R II is the world’s first1 camera to offer 4K movie recording5 to internal media in the full-frame format. It also provides you the option of shooting 4k in the super 35mm format. Enjoy the expansive power that the full-frame image sensor can express in 4k with direct pixel readout and no line skipping. In super-35 format, the α7R II employs oversampling with full pixel readout and no line skipping or pixel binning - resulting in images that exhibit higher resolution and less moiré and jaggies than typical 4K movies. Fast hybrid AF with 399 phase detection AF points and 5-axis image stabilization take movie making to a new level.

Fast Hybrid AF with 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points

Your shots of action can look clearer than ever, thanks to a new full-frame image sensor that assures the world’s highest number of focal plane phase-detection AF points, at 399, and the widest coverage, of 45% of the image area1. With its accelerated readout and an advanced algorithm to anticipate subject movement, the sensor also makes it possible for the Fast Hybrid AF system with additional 25-point contrast-detection AF points to raise speed, accuracy, and tracking performance to incredible heights, even when shooting at up to 5fps at 42.4MP. Faster readout thanks to the back-illuminated structure of the image sensor improved AF response so dramatically that the AF system of the α7R II instantly captures even fast-moving subjects with razor-sharp clarity.

Durable reduced-vibration shutter

Durable reduced-vibration shutter

The new shutter's braking mechanism cuts mechanical front/rear curtain vibration by about 50%2. Also, use the electronic front curtain for even less vibration. This not only minimizes camera shake that can blur details in 42.4-megapixel images — it makes the shutter durable enough to have been tested to 500,000 cycles4.

Tough magnesium alloy body and robust lens mount

Designed for solid reliability and steady handling, the α7R II's compact body is built to withstand the rigors of shooting in the field, thanks to an internal structure and top, front, and rear covers all made of strong, rigid magnesium alloy. Furthermore, the α7R II features a robust lens mount with the strength and rigidity to match the body – this is especially good for mounting large, heavy lenses such as super telephoto lenses and those preferred for movie shooting.

3” LCD screen tilts up and down for easy high and low-angle framing.

The tiltable 3” (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine LCD Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds, or objects close to the ground or maybe you just want to get a different perspective. The screen can swivel up approx. 107° and down approx. 41°. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies thanks to WhiteMagic technology that nearly doubles the brightness of the display through a unique RGBW pixel structure for easier checking of the focus and image details.

High-bit-rate XAVC S format for 4K recording6

XAVC S format6 now supports 4K recording at maximum 100Mbps bit rate as well as Full HD recording at 50Mbps, so the α7R II can capture movies6 filled with finely detailed movement. For efficient handling, XAVC S files are minimized in size using Long GOP data compression, and contained in the widely compatible MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format.

Designed for a pro-workflow with Picture Profiles, S-Log2 and time code.

The α7R II is equipped with S-Log2 gamma. Common to Sony’s range of professional video cameras, S-Log2 expands the dynamic range by up to 1300% to minimize clipped highlights and loss of detail in shadows. The α7R II include a picture profile that can adjust settings like gamma, black, level and color adjustment, and can be saved for use in a multi-camera shoot. It also has Full HD base band HDMI® output, time code/user bit for easier editing, synchronous recording feature with compatible devices, various marker and zebra displays on both the LCD screen and viewfinder.

Compatible with professional microphone systems.

The α7R II has a MI (Multi interface) shoe that is compatible with Sony’s optional XLR Adaptor Microphone Kits (XLR-K1M and XLR-K2M), allowing you to use professional XLR microphone systems for balanced audio during recording.

Fast Hybrid AF for movies

Simultaneous readout of live-view image and phase-detection AF information from the image sensor makes the extra-precise, smooth Fast Hybrid AF of the α7R II great for shooting movies — especially 4K movies which can otherwise reveal even a slight lack of sharpness in subject focus. AF drive speed and AF Tracking Sensitivity are also adjustable to support creative moviemaking.

High-speed BIONZ X® image processing engine

Get exceptional picture quality with detail reproduction technology- that faithfully capture images with realism, diffraction reducing technology to maintain sharp, fine clarity even at smaller aperture settings and area-specific noise reduction to reduce noise adaptively according to image area characteristics thereby producing greater detail. BIONZ X® image processing engine finely tunes the new image sensor's 42.4-megapixel data, for truer, clearer, more natural depiction.
