Expanded Sony Alpha A7S Mark II Digital Camera Body Key Features:
The A7S II is capable of recording 4K movies internally using XAVC S format and in turn can produce wonderfully detailed footage. A full pixel readout without pixel binning allows the camera to maximise the full-frame image sensor to capture higher image clarity with next to no moiré. This is also effective when shooting in Full HD where the camera can collect information from approximately 5 times as many pixels than is required, resulting is stunning footage. Finally, new profiles – S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3, popular amongst professional photographers and filmmakers deliver a wide dynamic range and allow for easier colour correction. Moreover, a new Gamma Display Assist allows you to monitor images or check focus when recording S-Log movies, and the Zebra function has been improved for even greater control.
An upgraded autofocus system featured in the A7S II offers 169 autofocus points which are fast and precise resulting in greater accuracy. The powerful 12.2MP CMOS image sensor allows the Fast Intelligent AF to detect contrast more easily and react speedily even in low-light situations (as low as EV-4). The autofocus is even more impressive when it comes to video where it has been upgraded to be twice as fast as the AF performance in the Sony Alpha A7s.
Sony Listened And Delivered
Built of the success of the A7s, Sony listened to the ways in which their customer thought it could be improved to make it more user friendly, reliable, and intuitive. To name a few, Sony has incorporated a magnesium-alloy body whilst re-designing the grip and shutter buttons so that the camera feels more natural in the hand. A silent shooting mode can be activated, 5fps continuous shooting and reduced-vibration shutter movement has also been included. Furthermore, the lens mount has been reinforced, which is specifically aim at when attaching third party lenses. Finally, users can now charge the camera via a USB power supply whilst the camera is in operation, thus extending battery life.
