Delivers full pixel readout3 with no binning in full-frame format.

5-axis optical image stabilisation
Ensures stable expression of stills and movies using various lenses.

169-point Fast Intelligent AF
This fast, accurate AF system performs reliably in light as low as EV (Exposure Value) -4.

Pro-level movie functions
Advanced features such as S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log3 and 120fps Full HD recording support professional workflow.

More dynamic detail
Ultra-high sensitivity, extra-wide dynamic range and improved image processing algorithm deliver high-quality images with spectacular details.

35mm full-frame Exmor™ CMOS sensor
12.2 megapixels4, wide ISO and dynamic ranges, and advanced light capture for subtler gradation.

BIONZ X™ image processing engine
Advanced algorithm realises extra-fine detail with minimal noise in producing stills and movies.

New 14-bit uncompressed RAW format
Now more format options to choose from, for unbeatable quality and range of tonal nuance.

At the forefront of 4K
Now internally records 4K movies in full-frame format featuring full pixel readout6 without pixel binning, and includes an array of advanced movie functions.

4K movies of the foremost quality

Expansive power to express images of fine details with less moiré, jaggies and noise is evident in movies that the α7S II can record internally in 4K full-frame format.

For a more professional workflow

More versatile functions for better moviemaking
Picture Profile tone adjustment, time code/user bit precision editing, and various other newly added advancements sharpen the cutting edge of α7S II moviemaking performance.

Easy post-production tool expands expression

The S-Log3 offers better tonal reproduction from shadow to mid-tone (18% grey) than the S-Log2. The α7S II even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting.

Extra stability for all shooting

Built-in stabilisation clarifies every situation
Compensation for five types of camera shake that can blur stills/movies shot handheld matches the camera's great sensitivity so you can use more shutter speed/ISO/aperture settings.

Focus with more finesse

Fast Intelligent AF accelerates speed and precision
With advanced Fast Intelligent AF featuring enhanced accuracy even in the dark and accelerated AF for movie shooting, the α7S II helps to assure that you capture clear stills and movies.

Smarter, sharper focus, segment by segment

With each of nine central AF points divided into 16 segments and noiseless clear images from the sensor, Fast Intelligent AF detects contrast accurately in light as low as EV -4.

Capture more action more clearly and quickly

With an autofocusing system that's twice as fast10 at movie shooting, the α7S II can clearly capture even moving action with unerring accuracy, efficiency and smoothness.
