Sony α7R II Reality Realized
The Sony Alpha a7R II Mirrorless Digital Camera features the first 42.4-megapixel Exmor R back-illuminated structure full-frame CMOS sensor, in the world prepared to
take mirrorless imaging to the next level. This sensor engineering both improves poor-light operation and speeds up data throughout, providing fast high-resolution
still pictures and UHD 4K video capture. Working with the BIONZ X image processor, photos can be produced at sensitivities all the way to ISO 102,400 and at a
continuous 5 frames per second shooting rate. The five-axis SteadyShot on-board image stabilization has also been enabled, compensating for horizontal, vertical,
pitch, roll and yaw movements.
Engineered to last, the improved magnesium alloy body has updated weather sealing along withj a sturdy lens mount for using large lenses. In addition, the shutter
features a reduced-vibration layout, diminishing shutter vibrations around 50%. Additionally, it now makes use of an electronic front curtain shutter which is rated for
500,000 cycles. Quiet shooting is also available for a silent shooting experience when needed.
There's a major boost in speed with a 40% increase the previous version. The AF system received its own tremendous upgrade by using 399 phase-detect points along with
25 contrast-detect points creating a Fast Hybrid AF system which delivers extremely precise tracking. The phase-detection points even
encompasses A-mount lenses when operated with the LA-EA1 and LA-EA3 adapter
Composing and reviewing your pictures as you work is taken care of using either the 3.0" 1,228.8k-dot tilting LCD monitor or the 0.5" 2.36M-dot XGA OLED
Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder. The viewfinder provides 0.78x magnification with a 4-lens system featuring double-sided aspherical elements for suitable viewing. The
monitor helps to photograph in odd situations by tilting up 107° and down 41°. Staying connected, the a7R II features NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity for remote
functions and transfer of your images to a tablet, smartphone, or computer.
When it comes to video, the leading addition is internal UHD 4K 3840 x 2160p image capture at 30 or 24 fps using the XAVC S configuration at 100 Mbps. This is made
possible by using either the full-frame readout or the Super 35 crop mode, without pixel binning. . Full 1920 x 1080p HD is still readily available at up to 60 frames
per second and HD 1280 x 720p is available at up to 120 fps. In Addition, the a7R II takes advantage of the included S-Log2 Gamma and S-Gamut settings along with a
fully customizable picture profiles.
