Sony Alpha a7R II Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)
World’s first back-illuminated full-frame sensor
Higher resolution, sensitivity and readout speed
As the world’s first2 35 mm full-frame image sensor with back-illuminated structure, this 42.4-megapixel CMOS sensor enhances light collection efficiency, expands circuitry scale, and, with the help of a quick-transmission copper wiring layer, outputs data about 3.5 times faster5, while minimizing image noise to reveal fine details in every picture.
Faster, smarter, truer processing
The BIONZ X™ image processing engine fine-tunes the new image sensor’s vast 42.4-megapixel data efficiently giving truer, clearer, more natural, low-noise image depiction.
New 14-bit uncompressed RAW format
Now more format options to choose from, for unbeatable quality and range of tonal nuance.
Clearer, more vibrant images
Advanced features raise the resolution even higher
Great performance achieves its full potential with an array of innovative features. 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 does not use an optical low-pass filter that can compromise high resolution. To reduce image blur, the camera’s newly developed reduced-vibration shutter minimizes camera shake caused by shutter movement and Silent Shooting mode eliminates it. And a growing family of FE lenses lets you see more of the incomparable clarity that the sensor delivers from every perspective.
Make every shot look sharper
Without an optical low-pass filter that can compromise image clarity, the α7R II lets you take full advantage of the high-resolution image sensor and superior resolving power of α lenses.
Fast Hybrid AF sharpens up
With an advanced image sensor and AF algorithm, the α7R II’s Fast Hybrid AF system delivers far superior AF coverage, speed and tracking performance.
More comprehensive AF coverage
399 AF points cover 45% of the total image area — more8 than any other digital camera can match.
Speedier AF response
Accelerated data readout (thanks to the back-illuminated sensor) and the Fast Hybrid AF system raise the AF speed by 40%
More continuous shooting capability
Fast readout and advanced algorithm make predictive subject tracking extra-precise for 5fps shooting.
Phase-detection AF with A-mount lens
Advantages of the phase-detection AF are assured even with an A-mount lens mounted9 via LA-EA3.
5-axis image stabilization in full-frame glory
Fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors
To optimize the benefit of the α7R II’s amazing high-resolution capability, especially when shooting unpredictable action or while you’re in motion, the act of shooting should be as steady as possible — otherwise, even slight camera shake can risk blurring the shot. The 5-axis image stabilization system is carefully fine-tuned to match the 42.4-megapixel performance of the α7R II, so you can zoom in on faraway subjects, shoot close-ups and capture night scenes with minimal camera shake blur to achieve maximum clarity.
Neutralizing all kinds of camera shake
Compensation for five types of camera shake and minimal blur, even in night shots, show how the α7R II clearly makes the most of the image sensor’s 42.4-megapixel3resolution.
4K movie quality hits an all-time high
The ultimate high-resolution movie experience
You can see how the α7R II is optimised for recording 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movies, particularly in Super 35 mm format, as it processes readout data from every pixel without pixel binning, thus effectively suppressing jaggies and moire. The resulting footage exhibits visibly sharper, finer, more subtle detail than typical 4K movies. Also, as the first2full-frame camera that can record movies at 4K resolution in the 35 mm full-frame format, the α7R II extends your ability to express visual qualities that the back-illuminated full-frame image sensor makes possible.
Frame as you see fit
Shoot footage in proper perspective
Select full-frame or Super 35 mm format when shooting in Full HD or 4K resolution, depending on your creative intentions. Either way, everything looks brilliant from edge to edge.
High-bit-rate XAVC S format
XAVC S format now supports 4K recording at maximum 100 Mbps bit rate as well as Full HD recording at 50 Mbps, so the α7R II can capture movies filled with finely detailed movement.
Ready for the long run
Focus on strength, smart features and reliability
The α7R II is the toughest, most durable α camera ever made, solidly engineered for action under all conditions, even with large lenses attached. It’s also designed with sophistication, integrating advanced functions that seamlessly complement the image sensor’s extraordinary 42.4-megapixel high resolution.
