The back-illuminated full-frame Exmor R CMOS image sensor and its BIONZ X processor with 42.4 megapixels is powerful and fast, taking your photographic imagery to the next level. This camera has the ability to shoot with an ISO range of 100 to 25,600 that can be expanded from ISO 50 to 102,400, taking acceptable amounts of noise and performing in any light situation.
Advanced motion detection
Made for the professional, the Sony a7R II has an S-Log2 offering up to 14 stops of dynamic range for excellent image quality. Utilising an advanced motion-detection algorithm and a quick hybrid AF system, it can push 5fps continuous shooting with AF tracking. High speed AF response is achieved with a 399 focal plane phase detection AF points. With this kind of focus, you’ll be able to achieve pin sharp images to create truly outstanding shots.
It can be difficult to achieve ultra stable hands with a zoom lens or when we’re out in weathered conditions. The 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE stabilisation achieves ultimate steady shots without camera shake, regardless if you are handholding. You can also record video handheld without having shaky footage.
Record full HD video
The Sony a7R II can record 4K video in multiple formats including super 35mm without pixel binning and full-frame format. It records at a high bit rate of 100Mbps during 4K recording and 50Mbps during full HD shooting. You’ll be producing professional videos alongside your stills that are cinema-ready.
Strong, lightweight and weatherproof
This camera is designed to last, made with an ultra-strong, solid magnesium alloy body. It is weatherproof and can take the toughest conditions. Weighing in at just 625g this camera is compact and lightweight. It performs well on small gimbals, or makes a good inconspicuous street photography camera.
Clever viewfinder functionality
With focus peaking in live preview with the electronic viewfinder, you’ll easily be able to detect what’s in focus. This is really helpful for when you’re video recording or taking stills with manual focus lenses. The camera also uses zebra patterning to let you know when an image is overexposed, even before you take the shot. This clever functionality is great for helping you judge your exposure better.
This camera’s shutter can be set to silent shooting mode for quiet shooting without any sensor vibration or movement. Silent mode slows shutter speed down, dropping the noise. This is great when you want to take candid shots or if you’re in a quiet spot where you don’t want to make a peep, like during a wedding ceremony.
When you’re on the road
Charge the internal battery while it’s still in the camera with the USB port. Perfect when you’re on the road or on-the-run. You can charge the Sony a7R II on-the-go with portable battery packs similar to the one you charge your phone with.
Go anywhere with built-in Wi-Fi
With built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, you can send image files wherever you are. This is useful if you’re far away from home, the office or nowhere near a computer.
