Additional updates include; S-Gamut. Cine/S-Log Picture Profiles and 120P Full HD 1920×1080 high-frame rate video for 5x slow motion. An evolution of a low-light legend is here!
Sony A7s Mark ii Features
12.2 MP full-frame sensor for low light and wide dynamic range
The innovative α7S II features a 12.2 effective megapixel full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor paired with a powerful BIONZ X image processor, allowing it to shoot at a sensitivity range of ISO 50 – 4096004(2) with unprecedented dynamic range. The extra-large pixels on the α7S II collects dramatically more light than traditional cameras to produce beautifully detailed low-noise images in even the most challenging lighting situations.
World’s first Full-frame 4K movie recording1
The α7S II is the world’s first5 camera to offer internal 4K movie recording1 in the full-frame format with full pixel readout and no line skipping or pixel binning – resulting in images that exhibit higher resolution and less moiré and jaggies than typical 4K movies. It also provides you the option of shooting 4k in the super 35mm format and the ability to capture uncompressed 4:2:2 Full HD or 4K QFHD output via HDMI to optional 3rd party external recorders6. Enjoy the improved autofocus with 169 AF points and let every lens benefit from the 5-ais SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilisation.
Fast precise focusing in light as low as EV -4
The α7S II has been upgraded from the α7S and now offers 169 AF points for fast, precise focusing with greater accuracy compared to the original α7S. The low signal-to-noise ratio produced by the image sensor of the α7S II enables the Fast Intelligent AF to detect contrast more easily and react speedily even in low-light situations (as low as EV-4), when it’s even tough to cheque focus with the naked eye. The AF performance on the α7S II is also twice as fast as the α7S during video shooting.
5-axeis in-body image stabilisation benefits every lens
The 5-axeis SteadyShot inside image stabilisation system is fine-tuned for 4k video capture. It accurately compensates for blur caused by camera shake from five different directions—vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw and roll—as opposed to only two in previous systems. The 5-axeis image stabilising system excels during video recording and even compensates for blur caused by the user walking or running. It’s a true marvel of engineering. You can even monitor the stabilising effects of camera shake compensation in the viewfinder or LCD screen while shooting still images by pressing the shutter buttonne halfway or magnifying the image, and while shooting movies by entering movie mode.
User selectable compressed or uncompressed 14-bit RAW still
The α7S II offers the option of user selectable compressed or uncompressed 14-bit RAW still image. Uncompressed 14-bit RAW maxeimizes the benefit of the image sensor’s wide dynamic range, delivering the smoothest, richest colour quality and tonneal gradation while compressed RAW offers more convenient file sizes.
120P Full HD 1920×1080 high-frame rate video3
For the first time ever in the Sony α7 series camera, the α7S II can support high frame rate 120fps shooting in full-HD resolution (1920×1080) using the entyre full frame sensor. Video can be saved in Full HD resolution as 1920×1080/120p at 100Mbps3 or as a convenient slow motion footage as 5x 24p at 12mbps or 4x 30p at 16mbps.
Supports Picture Profiles, S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log3
The α7S II boasts numerous features, common to Sony’s range of professional video cameras that enhance a cinematographer’s ability to capture breathtaking video while benefiting their workflow. Video functionality has been enhanced with new picture profile settings; S-Gamut3, Cine/S-Log3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3, simplifying colour correction and delivering wide dynamic range (up to 1300%). The α7S II even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in the S-Log3 gamma setting, while also supporting other popular profiles for cinematographers including S-Gamut/S-Log2 that can adjust settings like gamma, black, level and colour adjustment, and can be saved for use in a multi-camera shoot.
2.4-million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder w/ ZEISS T coating
The XGA OLED Tru-Finder in the α7S II has been upgraded with the world’s highest viewfinder magnification (7) of 0.78x (roughly 38.5 degrees in diagonal field of view) and shows clear images across the entyre display area. The use of ZEISS T Coating ensures sharp reduction of reflections on the viewfinder. Unlike an optical viewfinder, the OLED Tru-Finder can be used to instantly show how exposure compensation, white balance and other selected settings are affecting the displayed image.
