The Sony A7 Mark II is the world’s first camera to offer 5-axis image stabilisation. Sony’s SteadyShot ensures stable handheld shots and video so you won’t have shaky footage. You’ll be able to shoot at slower shutter speeds without blur – even with non-stabilised lenses when shot from a distance.
The Sony A7 Mark II full-frame Exmor sensor with stunning 24.3 megapixel resolution will enable you to shoot at a wide dynamic range of 80,000 ISO with low noise. This sensor will enable you to produce creamy bokeh for softness in your shots.
The enhanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine offers high speed and precise shooting. By reducing noise, you’ll be able to achieve better colour reproduction and enhanced tones. Producing excellent clarity and detail, the Sony A7 Mark II will produce exceptional quality images. With an ISO range of 50–25600, you’ll be able to shoot in any lighting conditions.
The Sony A7 Mark II has high-performance fast hybrid AF, remarkably fast for a full-frame camera AF system. You can always be prepared when the right moment comes up to snap up that perfect shot with the dependable fast hybrid AF. Offering 5 frames per second in AF/AE shooting, you’ll produce accurate shots every time.
The S-Log2 gamma setting offers a wider dynamic range to give you more control in post-production. You’ll be able to produce deeper tones, defined shadows and pronounced colours.
Handy features such as Focus Peaking and Zebra will enable you to achieve more with your photography. Focus Peaking allows you to easily see what’s in focus. This is great for when you’re video recording or taking stills with manual focus lenses. Zebra lets you know what’s over exposed in the picture before you take the shot, great for helping you judge your exposure better.
You can charge your internal battery via the USB port even when it is still in the camera. Perfect for when you’re on-the-go, you’ll be able to charge your camera just the same way you charge your phone. That’s handy when you’re out on shoot and your battery needs a top up.
Weighing in at just 627g, this camera is perfect for taking out with you anywhere on shoot without weighing you down. It also works perfectly in small gimbals, and is great for inconspicuous street photography. The robust magnesium alloy body and lens mount ensure this camera will withstand any environment.
The Sony A7 Mark II does more than just take great photographs. It's also capable of superior video recording to make it a well-rounded piece of equipment in your kit. The XAVC S format produces high-quality video with minimal noise. It enables video recording in the high-bit-rate XAVC S format for full high-definition imagery at 50Mbps (60p/50p, 30p/25p, 24p).
