Extreme sensitivity, wide dynamic range
With sensitivity settings that can extend up to ISO 409600 plus extra-wide dynamic range, the α7S II can record images in spectacular and subtle detail, from shadows to highlights, under virtually any lighting conditions.
5-axis optical image stabilization
Equivalent to using a 4.5-stop faster shutter speed, this system is effective at compensating for five types of camera shake.
Wi-Fi/NFC simplifies sharing
With Wi-Fi and NFC built into the α7S II, you can instantly transfer a photo or MP4 movie to your NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet.
Smart, speedy BIONZ X image processing engine
The newly refined image processing algorithm of the BIONZ X optimizes image sensor performance for superior depiction of details in stills and movies throughout all sensitivity ranges.
Internal 4K movie recording and XAVC S format
The α7S II can record 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movies internally in full-frame format. Full pixel readout without pixel binning produces 4K movies with less moiré and jaggies. Support for XAVC S format enables 4K recording at maximum of 100 Mbps, for highly detailed footage with less impact from compression noise. Internal recording and HDMI output, both at 4K resolution, are available in full-frame format.
Fast Intelligent AF for levels as low as EV -4
With 169 AF points (25 contrast-detection points, plus nine central AF points each divided into 16 segments, for a total of 25+(9x16)), this speedy, accurate system ensures subject detection accuracy when shooting stills even under low-visibility conditions with lighting as low as EV -4. Moreover, AF speed for shooting Full HD movies is twice as fast as in the α7S.
Silent Shooting mode lets you mute shutter sound whenever noiseless operation is required, such as when shooting wildlife or concert photos. This function can be used with 5fps continuous shooting, so you needn't miss a crucial moment, and can be assigned to a customizable button, so it can be turned On and Off more intuitively.
120fps Full HD and 4x/5x slow motion recording
Featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning, 120fps (100fps) capability and ultra-high sensitivity, the α7S II shoots low-noise, high-frame-rate Full HD movies like no other camera. 120fps (100fps) capability also allows internal recording of 4x/5x slow motion movies with frame rate set at 30p (25p) or 24p.
Tough magnesium alloy body
Designed for solid reliability and steady handling, the α7S 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.
