Extreme sensitivity, wide dynamic range

With sensitivity settings that can extend up to ISO 409600 9 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. The remarkable clarity and lack of noise in stills and movies that you shoot help to realise results that you’ve been aiming for.

99d4dc26d46c6c6e7d7e1311c4de4496

Exmor™ CMOS for extra sensor perception

Capture stills and movies of richer, more natural gradation. The 35mm full-frame 12.2-megapixel 10 image sensor achieves wide dynamic range with very low noise throughout a vast ISO 50-4096001 sensitivity span. Large pixels, gapless on-chip lens structure and other light capture advances allow use of extra-high shutter speeds for low-light shooting.

33a12a28adbcb8be152d1b4a984c506f

Smart, speedy BIONZ X™ image processing engine

The newly refined image processing algorithm of the BIONZ X optimises image sensor performance for superior depiction of details in stills and movies throughout all sensitivity ranges. This image processing engine realises image quality of such fine nuance and minimal noise particularly at the mid- to high-sensitivity setting.

905a273206f062fc1d629743f2d3e0a8

Internal 4K movie recording and XAVC S format 11

The α7S II can record 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movies internally in full-frame format. Full pixel readout12 without pixel binning produces 4K movies with less moiré and jaggies. Support for XAVC S format 11 enables 4K recording at maximum of 100Mbps, 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.

561f98e1b4943326083b7506083d1963

Movie functions improve professional workflow

With new functions such as 120fps Full HD recording, 4x/5x slow motion recording and Gamma Display Assist joining enhanced Zebra function, time code/user bit editing and other moviemaking capabilities in its feature set, the α7S II solidly supports professional workflow, giving you greater latitude to produce more moving visions than ever before.

8e39264c8618bb105524ec0f8587bbfd

S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3

With these new profiles, dynamic range can be widened up to 1300% for smoother gradations, and colour grading, correction and handling is easy. S-Log3 gamma tonal reproduction is better from shadow to mid-tone (18% grey). The camera’s 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 setting is impressive. S-Gamut3.Cine reproduces the wide colour gamut of DCI-P3 colour space. S-Gamut3 reproduces almost all actual colours suitable for archiving.

b54aaf55bde0d55d62a9f31ee4d485f9

5-axis optical image stabilisation

Equivalent to using a 4.5-stop 13 faster shutter speed, this system is effective at compensating for five types of camera shake. The camera integrates extraordinary image stabilisation and sensitivity to light to let you use a greater range of shutter speed/ISO/aperture settings to express what you aim to capture in handheld stills or movies.

00cbac72da3a70054bfb1b6e2cea6af4

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+(9×16)), 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.

697c74313a2dca0778b3c453b5bc4019

0.78x magnification XGA OLED Tru-Finder™

With the world’s highest 14 magnification and ZEISS® T* Coating, this electronic viewfinder delivers stunning clarity and contrast with minimal reflection and instantly shows how exposure compensation, white balance and other settings affect images. You can also use Gamma Display Assist and Zebra functions while shooting movies using the viewfinder.

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 maximise the benefit of the image sensor’s wide dynamic range.

Silent Shooting

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 15 continuous shooting, so you needn’t miss a crucial moment, and can be assigned to a customisable button, so it can be turned On and Off more intuitively.

Wi-Fi / NFC™ simplifies sharing

With Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication) built into the α7S II, you can instantly transfer a photo or MP4 movie to your NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet simply by touching it with the camera, then easily upload the photo or movie to your favourite SNS (social networking site).

dae05d14081a0ddfab21bfd69c22e974

New Gamma Display Assist function

This new function lets you view images with natural contrast while recording in S-Log gamma setting, converting S-Log2 and S-Log3 into ITU709 (800%) gamma for monitoring 16 images or checking focus while enlarging an image, on the LCD screen or viewfinder

24400ef1e540fba3e5493ed8e99fd0b6

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.

36def3ec50b1e1ab93c1eaf4c7092b50

Clean HDMI output

This function supports 4K 17 and Full HD and allows uncompressed movie output to an external recorder or monitor. The image can also be recorded in the camera 18 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.

09b785b0a322d26eecfe37004dd0f69b

Enhanced Zebra function

This function makes it easier to monitor exposure, especially when shooting in S-Log gamma setting. Select a video signal level target from 0 to 109, apply a range to it, then the zebra pattern indicates image areas reaching that level or range. The new wider video signal level selection and ability to assign a range simplify exposure adjustment.

9f9a654287b168464d69d7976d9a434f

Picture Profile

It’s very useful to tailor the look of your movies even before shooting them by adjusting image characteristics via Picture Profile settings for gradation, colour adjustment and detail. Save and recall up to nine profiles (PP1-PP9) of adjusted parameters with other settings, including new ones for S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3.

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.

Expand Flexible Spot

Expand Flexible Spot has been added to AF Area selection. If the selected AF point is not positioned on your subject, the α7S II automatically uses AF points surrounding the selected point to support precise focus.

e66caf656423fc65d233ab259bc8f661

More precise white balance adjustment

The α7S 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 the α7S, so you can finely tune white balance with more subtle precision for more natural colours.

ec462f5c4d9a0da4f1c75a5cf68934f1

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 colourise the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.
