Expanded Sony Alpha A7R Mark II Digital Camera Body Key Features:
High-Resolution and Speed
The user can reach professional-grade quality, sensitivity, and respond speed thanks to the impressive 42.4-megapixel CMOS imaging sensor. This fantastic piece of tech combines two of the main determining factors when choosing a camera. Users don’t have to limit themselves to either buying a camera that offers high-resolution with lighting fast speeds, or high-resolution with high-sensitivity. The A7R Mark II offers both in a sleek, compact body. Another marvellous feature is the sensor’s back-illuminated structure that includes an expanded circuit scale and copper wiring design. Thanks to this it delivers faster transmission speeds and guarantees that the content is being captured in high-resolution without losing sensitivity. Last but not least the data can also output from the sensor at an approx. 3.5x faster rate when compared to its predecessor.
High Sensitivity ISO with Low Noise
The light collecting efficiency has been dramatically improved thanks to the amalgamation of the gapless on-ship lens design and the AR (anti-reflective) coating on the surface of the sensor’s glass seal. These features are incorporated into the impressive 42.4-megapixel imaging sensor. The user can enjoy low noise, high-sensitivity autofocus with a wide dynamic range making this camera perfect for shooting in low lit scenarios as well as wildlife photography and videography. In addition to this the Sony Alpha A7R Mark II delivers a remarkable ISO range of 100 to 25600 which can be further expanded to ISO 50 to 102400.
Fast Hybrid AF System
The Imaging Sensor has a 399 focal-plane, phase-detection AF which works with the 25 contrast AF points to achieve a focus response that is approximately 40% faster than its predecessor. The user can enjoy 5fps continuous shooting with AF tracking thanks to the Fast Hybrid AF system combined with the advanced motion-detection algorithm.
BIONZ X Image Processor
The high-speed BIONZ X Image Processor enables images and video form the camera to be recorded with fantastic detail and low noise. Optical low pass filter is also available on the camera. This ensures that the scenery and landscapes are captured in the highest possible resolution.
5-Axis Image Stabilisation
This 5-Axis Image Stabilisation system has been optimised to facilitate high-resolution capture. It corrects camera shake along 5-axis during capture and includes angular shake (pitch and yaw) that tends to occur with a telephoto lens, shift shake (X and Y axes) which can become very apparent as magnification increases, and finally rotational shake (roll) that often negatively affects video recording. In addition to this the stabilisation system works with the Sony A lenses with optical SteadyShot (OSS). This provides the user with maximum clarity and stabilisation, while at the same time delivering admirable performance via compatible mount adapter when combined with the Sony A-mount lenses without on board stabilisation. The operator is able to preview the effects of the stabiliser on a large, live-view LCD or OLED viewfinder.
The incorporated shutter features a highly durable design with reduced-vibration that delivers 50% less vibration from the shutter movement compared to its predecessor. It offers a cycle durability of up to 500,000 shots. The user is able to set the camera to Silent Shooting Mode to capture images quietly and without sensor movement or vibration.
Optional A-mount Adapter
This mirrorless camera is the first camera which features an AF system that can perform extremely well when used with lenses originally designed for DSLRs. The focal plane phase-detection AF is compatible with the Sony A-mount lenses when they are mounted with either an LA-EA3 or LA-EA1 mount adapter.
Fantastic 4K Video Capture
The Sony Alpha A7R Mark II can capture stunning 4K quality footage in either 35mm crop mode or full-frame mode. When shooting in 35mm the camera collects a large amount of information from approx. 1.8x as many pixels as 4K. This is achieved through the utilisation of full pixel readout without pixel binning. It oversamples the information in order to produce beautifully detailed 4K videos with minimal moire and ‘jaggies’. When using the full-frame mode the camera utilises the full width of the 35mm sensor for 4K capture. This empowers the camera operators to benefit from expanded expressive power of the sensor. During 4K recording, the camera uses the advanced XAVC S codec which allows for high bit rate of 100 Mbps, and 50 Mbps in full HD mode. In addition to all of these features the user also benefits from a large variety of functions that facilitate professional filmmaking. These functions include Picture Profile, S-Log2 Gamma and S-Gamut, 120fps high frame rate movie shooting in HD (720p), time code, a clean HDMI output, and more!
Enhanced Design, Operability and Reliability
The upgraded XGA OLED Tru-Finder features a double-sided aspherical lens which provides impressive viewfinder magnification of 0.78x crystal clear image preview as well as playback across the entire display area. Unwanted reflections are minimised thanks to the ZEISS T Coating for an improved user experience. The built of the camera itself is lightweight, robust with a professional feel. It features a redesigned grip, shutter button, and a new mechanism that conveniently lock the mode dial. The user can enjoy a flexible range of customisable buttons and functions to make the camera experience their own.
Wi-Fi, NFC Connectivity, and Apps
Compatible with Sony’s PlayMemories App for mobiles and cameras (iOS and Android) as well as WiFi, and NFC. These apps add a healthy range of new features and help expand creativity. One example of this is the ‘Angle Shift add-on’ app that enables users to add pan, tilt, and zoom to time-lapses with no need for additional equipment or software. CLM-FHD5 LCD monitor is also compatible with this camera. It is a 5.0-type Full HD LCD monitor that offers an enlarging and peaking functionality that aids precise focusing, false colour and video level maker that adjusts exposure. Finally, the S-Log display supports S-Log capture.

In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
In regular, permanent employment.
Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
