Making strides in the video arena, the a7S II Mirrorless Digital Camera from Sony offers an impressive blend of sensitivity, dynamic range, resolution, and speed to benefit a versatile multimedia workflow. Revolving around a full-frame 12.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor, the a7S II is capable of internal UHD 4K recording at 30 fps with full pixel readout as well as 1080p recording at up to 120 fps, all in the XAVC S format. For both stills and video recording, the BIONZ X image processor also pairs with the sensor to enable expanded sensitivity to ISO 409600, continuous shooting to 5 fps, and fast intelligent autofocus with low-light sensitivity to -4 EV. Further enabling working in difficult lighting conditions, 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization compensates for vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw, and roll camera movements for sharper, smoother handheld recording.
Complementing the 4K recording capabilities is a redeveloped recording setup, including the ability to utilize S-Log3 Gamma and S-Gamut3 in addition to S-Log2, for increasing dynamic range values by up to 1300% to better match high-end post-production workflows. For clearer monitoring potential, an enhanced Zebra function better supports working with S-Log gamma settings and a Gamma Display Assist helps to preview imagery with natural contrast by converting S-Log2 and S-Log3 settings to the ITU709 gamma for easier on-camera viewing.
The a7S II is also characterized by a compact, yet robust, magnesium alloy body design that incorporates a high 0.78x-magnification Tru-Finder OLED electronic viewfinder. With a resolution of 2.36-million dots and a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating, this finder benefits working in a variety of lighting conditions and is capable of previewing exposure and settings adjustments prior to recording. A rear 3.0" 1,228,800-dot LCD screen is also available, and features a tilting design to support working from high and low angles. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC allows you to pair mobile devices to the camera for wireless sharing and remote camera control.
The Sony 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS E-mount Full Frame camera lens combines sophisticated G Lens bokeh with exceptionally high resolution. This results in an excellent constant F2.8 telephoto zoom lens which offers unparalleled rendering, rapid auto focus, and exceptional image stabilization performance. Chromatic aberration is thereby suppressed by four ED glass elements (Extra-low Dispersion) and two Super ED glass elements. You no longer suffer from colour-range so that you can capture the subject with maximum sharpness.
A sturdy construction and constant lens length during focusing and zooming provide excellent control of the Sony 70-200mm in various shooting situations. The focus locks the focus point can even be held constant while using autofocus. You can also use the button for focus limiting to adjust a focusing distance range in advance for maximum autofocus speed.
Fast autofocus, optimized for photo and video
Two focus groups will be quickly and precisely positioned by separate actuators: a strong ring-actuator SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) for the front group and a double linear motor for the rear group. Improved positioning precision works through real-time feedback of various position sensors, which ensure that the autofocus system of the body can work optimally.
More refinements for incredible autofocus for films
The dual linear motor of the focusing system offers 'staggering' drive for the AF contrast detection when filming. An optical design which minimizes change in the viewing angle, plus silent mechanical workings, provide focus performance ideal for both photos and videos.
Stabilized for sharp and stable photos
High-quality image stabilizer built directly into the lens for sharp and stable photos in a wide variety of topics. The heavy stabilization lens is driven by a linear motor for high-speed, precise stabilization. Stabilization over five axles is available when using the lens housings from the alpha series with built-in image stabilization.
The best close-ups in its class
The Sony 70-200mm F2.8 OSS GM has a minimum focusing distance of 0.96 mm and a maximum magnification of 0.25x, ideal for portraits, macro and telephoto and more. Contributing refinements include ED glass elements and a floating focus mechanism to prevent problematic aberration during close-up shooting.
