Details

World’s first1 Full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R® CMOS sensor with 42.4 megapixels

The newly developed 35mm Exmor R® CMOS sensor is the world’s first full-frame sensor with back-illuminated structure. The structure combines gapless on-chip lens design and AR (anti-reflective) coating on the surface of the sensor's glass seal - with no low-pass filter - to dramatically improve light collection efficiency, even though the pixels are smaller than the ones in the α7R. Moreover, the wiring layer now uses copper (instead of aluminum) wiring for faster transmission speed2. The results are truly remarkable – with incredibly detailed 42.4 megapixel stills and 4k video with high sensitivity - up to ISO 102,4003, low-noise performance and wide dynamic range that are superior to previous models.

5-axis in-body image stabilization optimized for 42.4MP full-frame

The 5-axis SteadyShot™ INSIDE image stabilization system is fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors. 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-axis image stabilizing system excels during video recording and even compensates for blur caused by the photographer walking or running. It’s a true marvel of engineering. You can even monitor the stabilizing effects of camera shake compensation in the viewfinder or LCD screen while shooting still images by pressing the shutter button halfway or magnifying the image, and while shooting movies by entering movie mode.

4K movie recording 5 with full pixel readout and no pixel binning

The α7R II is the world’s first1 camera to offer 4K movie recording5 to internal media in the full-frame format. It also provides you the option of shooting 4k in the super 35mm format. Enjoy the expansive power that the full-frame image sensor can express in 4k with direct pixel readout and no line skipping. In super-35 format, the α7R II employs oversampling 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. Fast hybrid AF with 399 phase detection AF points and 5-axis image stabilization take movie making to a new level.

Fast Hybrid AF with 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points

Your shots of action can look clearer than ever, thanks to a new full-frame image sensor that assures the world’s highest number of focal plane phase-detection AF points, at 399, and the widest coverage, of 45% of the image area1. With its accelerated readout and an advanced algorithm to anticipate subject movement, the sensor also makes it possible for the Fast Hybrid AF system with additional 25-point contrast-detection AF points to raise speed, accuracy, and tracking performance to incredible heights, even when shooting at up to 5fps at 42.4MP. Faster readout thanks to the back-illuminated structure of the image sensor improved AF response so dramatically that the AF system of the α7R II instantly captures even fast-moving subjects with razor-sharp clarity.

2.4-million dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ w/ ZEISS T* coating

See every detail in every scene with the XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder. The new four-lens optical system with double-sided aspherical elements provides views of cutting-edge clarity and contrast throughout the entire width and length of the display. Better yet, ZEISS T* coating ensures absolutely minimal surface reflection. You’ll enjoy rich tonal gradations and high-end features like 100% frame coverage, and the world's highest1 magnification in a full-frame camera with EVF at 0.78x7. View every scene in rich detail as the viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately monitor the results.

Simple connectivity to smartphones via Wi-Fi®/NFC.

Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi®, you can easily connect to a compatible iOS or Android™ smartphone or tablet with the free PlayMemories Mobile App. From there you can control your camera, preview and frame using your mobile device and trigger the camera shutter or movie button. Then instantly transfer a photo or MP4 movie to your device. NFC™ (Near Field Communication) provides “one-touch connection” convenience to Android™ smartphones and tablets with NFC. Simply touch devices to connect. Setting up your mobile device is as simple as downloading a free PlayMemories Mobile app.

Personalize your camera with PlayMemories™ Camera Apps9.

Add new features to your α7R II with PlayMemories™ Camera Apps9. Find apps to fit your shooting style - with everything from time lapse, motion shot and more. Use apps that shoot, share and save photos to your smartphone using Wi-Fi®, making it easy to post photos directly to your favorite social media site or backup images to the cloud without connecting to a computer.

Focal plane phase-detection AF with A-mount lenses10

The α7R II offers focal plane phase-detection AF with A-mount lenses10 So you can take advantage of the wide AF coverage of 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points, high-speed response, high tracking capability and high optical performance of A-mount lenses. This is only possible with A-mount lenses mounted using a LA-E3 or LA-EA1 (APS C format with LA-EA1) lens mount adaptor and that have a SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) or SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor).

Durable reduced-vibration shutter

The new shutter's braking mechanism cuts mechanical front/rear curtain vibration by about 50%2. Also, use the electronic front curtain for even less vibration. This not only minimizes camera shake that can blur details in 42.4-megapixel images — it makes the shutter durable enough to have been tested to 500,000 cycles4.

Tough magnesium alloy body and robust lens mount

Designed for solid reliability and steady handling, the α7R II's compact body is built to withstand the rigors of shooting in the field, thanks to an internal structure and top, front, and rear covers all made of strong, rigid magnesium alloy. Furthermore, the α7R II features a robust lens mount with the strength and rigidity to match the body – this is especially good for mounting large, heavy lenses such as super telephoto lenses and those preferred for movie shooting.

3” LCD screen tilts up and down for easy high and low-angle framing.

The tiltable 3” (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine LCD™ Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds, or objects close to the ground or maybe you just want to get a different perspective. The screen can swivel up approx. 107° and down approx. 41°. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies thanks to WhiteMagic™ technology that nearly doubles the brightness of the display through a unique RGBW pixel structure for easier checking of the focus and image details.

High-bit-rate XAVC S™ format for 4K recording6

XAVC S™ format6 now supports 4K recording at maximum 100Mbps bit rate as well as Full HD recording at 50Mbps, so the α7R II can capture movies6 filled with finely detailed movement. For efficient handling, XAVC S™ files are minimized in size using Long GOP data compression, and contained in the widely compatible MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format.

Designed for a pro-workflow with Picture Profiles, S-Log2 and time code.

The α7R II is equipped with S-Log2 gamma. Common to Sony’s range of professional video cameras, S-Log2 expands the dynamic range by up to 1300% to minimize clipped highlights and loss of detail in shadows. The α7R II include a picture profile that can adjust settings like gamma, black, level and color adjustment, and can be saved for use in a multi-camera shoot. It also has Full HD base band HDMI® output, time code/user bit for easier editing, synchronous recording feature with compatible devices, various marker and zebra displays on both the LCD screen and viewfinder.

Compatible with professional microphone systems.

The α7R II has a MI (Multi interface) shoe that is compatible with Sony’s optional XLR Adaptor Microphone Kits (XLR-K1M and XLR-K2M), allowing you to use professional XLR microphone systems for balanced audio during recording.

Fast Hybrid AF for movies

Simultaneous readout of live-view image and phase-detection AF information from the image sensor makes the extra-precise, smooth Fast Hybrid AF of the α7R II great for shooting movies — especially 4K movies which can otherwise reveal even a slight lack of sharpness in subject focus. AF drive speed and AF Tracking Sensitivity are also adjustable to support creative moviemaking.

High-speed BIONZ X® image processing engine

Get exceptional picture quality with detail reproduction technology- that faithfully capture images with realism, diffraction reducing technology to maintain sharp, fine clarity even at smaller aperture settings and area-specific noise reduction to reduce noise adaptively according to image area characteristics thereby producing greater detail. BIONZ X® image processing engine finely tunes the new image sensor's 42.4-megapixel data, for truer, clearer, more natural depiction.

No optical low-pass filter

Since the camera has no optical low-pass filter that can compromise high resolution, every shot you take benefits from the fine edge-to-edge clarity and detail that the higher-performance image sensor and lenses deliver.

All FE lenses maximize resolution

Broaden your photographic horizons with Sony's expanding line of 35mm full-frame compatible E-mount lenses. All of the current FE lenses are designed to realize the full potential of the 42.4 megapixels of the α7R II and more.

Compatibility with wide-ranging mountable lenses

5-axis image stabilization lets you enjoy unparalleled handheld shooting freedom with more of your favorite mountable lenses. The short flange-back distance in the E-mount α7R II extends compatibility with a range of lenses. Note: When using a third-party mount adaptor, performance, functionality and operation are not guaranteed and Sony will take no responsibility if a malfunction occurs.

Silent Shooting

Silent Shooting features an electronic shutter that is noiseless and causes no vibration, so you can shoot high-resolution images without camera shake and in situations that require complete silence.

Enhanced AF features

With Expand Flexible Spot, the α7R II automatically uses AF points surrounding the selected point to support precise focus if the selected AF point is not positioned on your subject directly. While Eye AF automatically detects and tracks an eye of even a moving subject (in AF-C mode), for more focusing accuracy.

Make it your own with easy button customization

You can assign any of 64 functions8 to any of 10 customizable buttons as you like. This makes operation more intuitive, quick and easy, and is extra-convenient for accessing such functions as starting and stopping of movie recording and switching between viewfinder and monitor.

Power supply via USB

Operation of the α7R II can be powered via USB connection to AC adaptor, a PC or mobile battery. This conserves the camera’s battery, allowing you extended use of the camera without worrying that the battery will run out. When the camera is turned off, the battery can be charged via the same connection.

Dust and moisture resistance

Enjoy carefree shooting in tough environments, thanks to comprehensive dust and moisture resistance measures that help prevent water and dust from entering the body. These measures include sealing around the buttons and dials, as well as a protective double-layered structure that tightly interlocks panels and components.

Note: This camera is designed for optimal dust and moisture resistance, but is not waterproof or splashproof.

Anti-dust system and coating

To keep your photos blemish-free, a special anti-static coating on the surface of the optical filter suppresses the attachment of both dry and moist dust particles when changing lenses. An anti-dust mechanism also vibrates at high speed when you select Cleaning Mode, to remove any particles adhering to the filter.

Meticulously crafted controls

Controls are refined for intuitive operation and immediate adjustment even while looking through the viewfinder. The front and rear dials have been particularly refined and positioned for easier, more efficient handling and turning. Also, a new mode dial locking mechanism prevents inadvertent changes of shooting mode at all times.

Enhanced grip and shutter button

The grip is refined in shape and height to support a more secure grasp of the camera even when a large lens is mounted. This also contributes to more confident operation of the shutter button and dials. Moreover, the shutter button has been reshaped and shifted forward to enable more natural shooting with less camera shake.

More precise white balance adjustment Bright Monitoring

The α7R II offers more white balance adjustment steps (twice as many on the amber-blue axis; four times as many on the green-magenta axis) than before, so you can finely tune white balance with more subtle precision for more natural colors.

Multi Frame NR (Noise Reduction)

Multi Frame NR composites four shots to significantly suppress noise and raise sensitivity, letting you clearly capture dark scenes without a tripod or flash. Camera shake blur is also lowered while contrast and detail are raised.

ISO Auto Minimum Shutter Speed

Prevent blur in a shot of a moving subject by setting a shutter speed at which ISO sensitivity starts changing when ISO AUTO (while in P or A mode, or in Multi Frame NR) is selected

1200-zone Evaluative Metering

Ample data from 1200-zone metering and focal plane phase-detection AF points allows for more precise control of light volume from an external flash that complements ambient light. Choose Multi-segment, Center-weighted or Spot metering mode.

D-range Optimizer (DRO) Creative Style

In difficult lighting, DRO corrects your images to achieve smoother, more natural gradations with more detail in the highlights and shadows. You can use it during continuous shooting and when photographing moving subjects.

Focus Magnifier & Peaking function

You can clearly magnify the image to simplify manual fine-tuning of the focus whether shooting still images or movies. The Peaking function can also be activated to colorize the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.

Bright Monitoring

This function that boosts image brightness by changing shutter speed, for example, can be assigned to a customizable button for easy access when shooting a starry sky or other dark scene.

Creative Style

Creative Style settings bring out the character of your scene. Simply select any of 13 settings (Vivid, Portrait, etc.) and the camera will adjust image parameters. You can also fine-tune contrast, saturation* and sharpness to suit your preference.

* Not available when B/W or Sepia mode is selected.

Auto HDR (High Dynamic Range)

Auto HDR composites the best details from three exposures to expand the dynamic range of your images from darkest shadows to brightest highlights and capture all the tonal gradations seen by your naked eye.

Clear Image Zoom)

Whether shooting still images or movies, this feature digitally zooms the center of your image up to 2x with nearly imperceptible degradation, thanks to proprietary By Pixel Super Resolution Technology.

Tether your camera to a PC for Remote Camera Control.

Remote Camera Control allows you to control your α7II from your PC and transfer files using a USB cable. Feature control has also been updated to include video capture control.

Image Data Converter

Advanced features enable manipulation, conversion and management of full-resolution RAW images. You can expertly adjust exposure, white balance, tonal curves, saturation, contrast, hue and sharpness — as well as apply DRO and vignetting compensation.
