The Sony Alpha a7 II Camera

The Sony Alpha a7 II is a full-frame, interchangeable-lens, mirrorless camera and update to the Sony Alpha a7. Key features include:

What’s New? Improvements to its predecessor include five-axis, in-body image stabilization, improved ergonomics and controls, faster autofocus performance, and additional video features.

24.3MP Full Frame Sensor. The a7 II features the same 24.3MP full-frame sensor as the a7, providing extremely high image quality in a very compact form factor. With its normal ISO range of 100-25600, the a7 II provides excellent low-light performance.

5-Axis Image Stabilization. Offers up to 4.5 stops of correction on any lens mounted. This includes angular shake (pitch and yaw), shift shake (X and Y axes), and rotational shake (roll). When using an E-mount lens that already features OSS, the two systems will work cooperatively for maximum stabilization.

E-mount. For the full-frame a7 series, Sony has taken their E-mount and created their line of FE lenses. These full-frame FE lenses utilize the same E-mount, but provide a larger image circle for covering the full-frame sensor. The existing APS-C E-mount lenses are compatible with the full-frame a7 series. However, you will have to shoot in crop-frame mode or accept any vignetting caused by the smaller image circle.

Hybrid Autofocus. The a7 II features the same combination 117-point-phase-detection/25-point-contrast-detection AF system as its predecessor, but, thanks to improved algorithms, it provides 30% faster performance and 1.5x more accuracy in tracking. There’s the option of flexible spot focus as well as multipoint, center-weighted, and zone focusing modes. For video and legacy-lens users, the manual-focus peaking enables highly visible and accurate operation and can be optimized for full-frame or APS-C-format shooting modes.

High Res EVF & LCD. The built-in, 2.4M-Dot, OLED electronic viewfinder gives users a large live preview of what the sensor sees with 100% frame coverage. The tilt-able, 3.0", 1,229K-dot rear LCD can also be used for image composition and review when shooting at arm’s length.

HD Video. Like the a7, the a7 II shoots Full HD 1080 video at 24p/60i/60p frame rates. However, the a7 II now records in the high-bit-rate 50Mbps XAVC S format in addition to the AVCHD and MP4 codecs. Uncompressed 4:2:2 video output via an HDMI connection is also possible. There are customizable color and gamma controls for making in-camera adjustments and also the option to shoot in the S-Log2 Gamma Curve that squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video signal for maximum post-production flexibility. It has both in-camera stereo microphone and external stereo mic input for audio capture.

Higher Build Quality. The durable magnesium-alloy body features dust and moisture sealing, enabling use in less than ideal conditions. There were many complaints of play in the lens mount on the original a7, but the a7 II sees a more robust, all-metal mount. Ergonomics have also been improved by a larger, redesigned grip with better shutter-release positioning. You still have plenty of customizable buttons depending on user preference (with the top panel housing two now), front and rear dials, and dedicated exposure-compensation dial. The Multi-Interface hotshoe allows an external flash to be connected, which is important since there’s not a built-in flash.

Other Notable Features. The a7 II has both built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capability for connecting to smart-devices, as well as an app store for adding features to the camera such as Sony’s Smart Remote. There’s also the option to remotely control the camera via USB. It records its 14-bit RAW images, JPG, and video files to SDHC/XC memory cards and uses the rechargeable NP-FW50 battery that’s rated for 350 shots per charge.
