- Sony A7R II Body Only
The imaging and video prowess of the Sony A7R II Mirrorless Digital Camera starts with the BIONZ X Image Processor that powers the 42.4 Megapixel EXMOR Full Frame CMOS Sensor. This combination gives rise to photos of superb detail and impressive Internal HD 4K Video recording. Moving subjects are clearly captured with the help of the 399 Phase-Detect Autofocus Points. Image blur caused by camera shake can be countered by the 5-Axis Steadyshot INSIDE Image Stabilization and the Reduced Vibration Shutter. Meanwhile, the 3", 1229k-Dot Tiltable TFT LCD monitor can be used to find the perfect angle for every photo. For a live preview on how the camera settings will affect a certain image, you can take peek inside the 0.5", 2.36M-dot OLED Tru-Finder Electronic Viewfinder. Aside from JPEG, this Sony Alpha camera is capable of 14-bit Uncompressed RAW format support for better post-processing. The A7R II makes large-screen viewing possible via its HDMI Terminal. Online sharing of recorded media as well as remote smartphone control is made possible by this camera's Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. The Sony A7R II Mirrorless Digital Camera is fortified by a durable and lightweight Magnesium alloy body and it is compatible with Sony E-Mount and A-Mount lenses.
Product Features in Detail
New back-illuminated full-frame CMOS sensor
The α7R II has the world's first 35 mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with back-illuminated structure, which achieves approx. 42.4 effective megapixel resolution, widely expanded sensitivity range, and extra-low noise performance. It also has no optical low-pass filter that can compromise sharpness, so fine clarity and detail extend from edge to edge of every frame.
High-speed BIONZ X™ image processing engine
With detail reproduction technology to capture the essence of realism, diffraction-reducing technology to maintain clarity even at smaller apertures, area-specific noise reduction to reduce noise adaptively and reproduce greater detail, the BIONZ X™ image processing engine finely tunes the image sensor's 42.4-megapixel data, for truer, clearer depiction.
All FE lenses maximize resolution
The growing group of FE lenses (35 mm full-frame compatible E-mount lenses)—all carefully developed to match full-frame image sensors employing increasing numbers of pixels—makes the most of the 42.4-megapixel high-resolution performance of the α7R II.
5-axis image stabilization
This stabilization system is fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors to compensate accurately for five types of camera shake that can compromise handheld shooting of the camera's 42.4-megapixel images. Camera shake compensation is equivalent to using a 4.5-step faster shutter speed, allowing you to take advantage of a wider range of shutter speeds.
Higher-resolution 4K movie recording
Footage from 4K movie recording, featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning in the Super 35 mm format exhibits higher resolution and superior clarity than typical 4K movies. Also, the XAVC S format allows 4K recording at 100 Mbps maximum bitrate to capture fine details of movement in movies.
Fast Hybrid AF now covers more
The high-performance image sensor enhances Fast Hybrid AF, which far surpasses conventional AF in comprehensiveness, speed, and response. The 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points cover 45% of the image area — the most coverage among digital still cameras with full-frame image sensors. 25-point contrast-detection AF coverage is also included.
Durable reduced-vibration shutter
The new shutter's braking mechanism cuts mechanical front/rear curtain vibration by about 50%. 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 cycles.
Tough magnesium alloy body
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.
XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ makes every view a vision
With the world's highest magnification at 0.78x among digital still camera viewfinders, the XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ provides views of cutting-edge definition, contrast, and depth throughout the entire display. ZEISS® T* Coating ensures absolutely minimal reflection on the viewfinder, so the α7R II's extraordinary 42.4-megapixel performance is apparent at all times.
Silent Shooting features an electronic shutter that causes no vibration, so you can shoot high-resolution images without camera shake. This mode also operates without a sound, so it's very convenient for shooting without disrupting indoor performances and outdoor wildlife, and in all other situations where silence is essential.
Supports 14-bit uncompressed RAW format
New compatibility with 14-bit uncompressed RAW format lets you choose the optimal format for your needs. The camera thereby ensures supreme quality of tonal gradation to maximize the benefit of the image sensor's wide dynamic range.
One-touch remote and one-touch sharing
One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.
PlayMemories Camera Apps add personal touches
Sony's application download service lets you add new functions and capabilities to your camera. There are apps for photo and movie effects to enhance and express your creativity, and others to allow your smartphone to function as a camera's remote control, for example.
Enhanced Eye AF
Now also available in AF-C focus mode, Eye AF automatically detects and tracks an eye of even a moving subject, for more framing freedom.
Stable viewfinder image
You can 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. Even when using a telephoto or macro lens, you can fine-tune framing and focusing without stress for steady results.
Expand Flexible Spot
If the selected AF point is not positioned on your subject, the α7R II automatically uses AF points surrounding the selected point to support precise focus.
Compatibility with wide-ranging mountable lenses
5-axis image stabilization lets you enjoy unparalleled handheld shooting freedom with more of your favorite mountable lenses. The short flange-back distance in the E-mount α7R II extends compatibility with a range of lenses.
Clean HDMI output
This function supports 4K and Full HD and allows uncompressed movie output to an external recorder or monitor. The image can also be recorded in the camera even while signals are output using this function. The included cable protector guards jacks and prevents cables from disengaging accidentally, so you can shoot with greater assurance.
Fine-tune the look of movies before shooting by adjusting gradation, color adjustment, and detail. Adjusted parameters can be saved with other settings as a profile, and up to 7 profiles (PP1-PP7) can be stored for later recall.
S-Log2 Gamma setting
This proprietary Sony setting featured in professional camcorders creates a 1,300% wider dynamic range for smooth gradation with reduced whiteout and blackout. Use color grading in post-production to make the most of low-noise images and super-rich detail to express footage in various ways. ISO 800 or higher is available when S-Log2 Gamma is selected.
ISO Auto Minimum Shutter Speed
Prevent blur in a shot of a moving subject by setting a shutter speed at which ISO sensitivity starts changing when ISO AUTO (while in P or A mode, or in Multi Frame NR) is selected.
More precise white balance adjustment
The α7R II offers more white balance adjustment steps (twice as many on the amber-blue axis; four times as many on the green-magenta axis) than before, so you can finely tune white balance with more subtle precision for more natural colors.
This function, which boosts image brightness by changing shutter speed, for example, can be assigned to a customizable button for easy access when shooting a starry sky or other dark scene.
Priority setup in AF-C/AF-S
In AF-S (Single-shot AF) or AF-C (Continuous AF) mode, choose AF priority for taking pictures only when subject is in focus, Release priority for taking pictures even when subject is not in focus, or Balanced Emphasis for balancing the AF and Release options to achieve accurate focus, without missing a decisive moment when shooting moving subjects.
1200-zone Evaluative Metering
Ample data from 1200-zone metering and focal plane phase-detection AF points allows for more precise control of light volume from an external flash that complements ambient light. Choose Multi-segment, Center-weighted or Spot metering mode.
In this mode, press the shutter button halfway down, and the camera automatically recognizes whether the subject is moving or not, then switches AF mode accordingly between AF-S to lock on a subject in focus and AF-C to keep adjusting focus. This versatility is useful for shooting various subjects at the same time, or to avoid switching AF mode manually.
Auto HDR (High Dynamic Range)
Auto HDR composites the best details from three exposures to expand the dynamic range of your images from darkest shadows to brightest highlights and capture all the tonal gradations seen by your naked eye.
Creative Style settings bring out the character of your scene. Simply select any of 13 settings (Vivid, Portrait, etc.) and the camera will adjust image parameters. You can also fine-tune contrast, saturation and sharpness to suit your preference.
D-range Optimizer (DRO)
In difficult lighting, DRO corrects your images to achieve smoother, more natural gradations with more detail in the highlights and shadows. You can use it during continuous shooting and when photographing moving subjects.
Multi Frame NR (Noise Reduction)
This mode composites four shots to significantly suppress noise and raise sensitivity, letting you clearly capture dark scenes without a tripod or flash. Camera shake blur is also lowered while contrast and detail are raised.
Focus Magnifier & Peaking function
You can clearly magnify the image to simplify manual fine-tuning of the focus whether shooting still images or movies. The Peaking function can also be activated to colorize the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.
Works with iMovie and Final Cut Pro X
This product is compatible with Final Cut Pro X and iMovie.
