    Description

    The tough and durable Sony a7RII features the world’s first back-illuminated 35mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with 42.4 megapixels. The Sony α7R II takes image resolution, sensitivity (up to ISO 102400) and speedy response to new heights. The Fast Hybrid AF system's dense extra-wide focal plane phase-detection AF coverage keeps a subject in sharp focus entirely throughout the frame, while 5-axis image stabilization reduces blur. High resolution is further enhanced by 4K movie recording featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning.

    Back-illuminated full-frame sensor
    The α7R II has the world's first 35mm 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, and 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.

    Clearer, more vibrant images
    With an outstanding 42.4-megapixel count, the new image sensor in the α7R II lets you explore the world in remarkable detail and the camera employs no optical low-pass filter that can compromise high resolution. To reduce image blur, the camera's newly developed reduced-vibration shutter minimizes and Silent Shooting mode eliminates camera shake caused by shutter movement. And a growing family of FE lenses lets you witness more of the incomparable clarity that the sensor delivers from every perspective.

    Fast Hybrid AF
    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 cameras3 with full-frame image sensors. 25-point contrast-detection AF coverage is also included.

    5-axis image stabilization in full-frame glory
    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-step4 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 35mm format exhibits higher resolution and superior clarity than typical 4K movies. Also, the XAVC S5 format allows 4K recording at 100 Mbps maximum bit rate to capture fine details of movement in movies.

    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
    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
    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.

    Wi-Fi / NFC simplifies sharing
    With Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication) built into the α7R II, you can instantly transfer a photo or MP4 movie to your Android smartphone or tablet simply by touching it with the camera, then easily upload the photo or movie to your favorite SNS (social networking site).

    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.

    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.
