Sony a99 II Digital SLR Camera
The Sony a99 II is a powerhouse for professionals, with a 42.4 megapixel sensor, a new hybrid phase detection autofocus system, 12 frames per second shooting, in-body 5-axis image stabilisation and 4K video capability.
Aimed squarely at professional photographers and videographers, the Sony a99 II will shoot 4K video and supports clean HDMI output of 4:2:2 and delivers stunning still images from its back-illuminated 42.4 megapixel full frame 35mm sensor, as well as supporting S-gamut, S-log and XAVC S formats.
Alongside the impressive 12 frames per second continuous shooting capability, the Sony a99 II features an advanced hybrid phase detection autofocus system consisting of a 79 point dedicated AF sensor and a 399 point focal-plane AF sensor on the image sensor for wider coverage and further AF/AE tracking.
Powered by a Bionz X processor, the 42.4 megapixel sensor has an outstanding sensitivity native from 100 to 25,600 and expanded ISO from 50 to 102,400.
Further embedding the a99 II as a professional camera for active photographers, the 5-axis image stabilisation system is as effective as using as a 4.5 stop faster shutter speed opening up even more opportunities for adventurous shooting.
Ergonomically, the a99 II is 8% smaller than its predecessor, the a99 thanks to a total redesign internally all housed in a magnesium alloy body. The XGA OLED tru-finder view finder compliments the 1,228k-dot tiltable LCD monitor, which makes it a delight to use the intuitive menu for improved usability.
Bostng its pprox. 4.4 effective megpixel resolution, α99 has 5mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with back-illuminated structure, widely expanded sensitivity range, and extra-low noise performance. It also has no opitcal low-pass Filter that can compromise Sharpness, so fine clarity and detail extend from edge to edge of every frame.
Wth detail reproduction technology to capture the essence of realism, diffraction-reducing technology to Maintain clarity even at smaller apertures, and re-specfic noise reducton to lower noise adaptively and reproduce greater detail, the BONZ X image processing engine finely tunes the image sensor's effective 4.4-megpixel (approx.) data for truer, clearer depiction. α99 is supported by new front-end LS to boost image data handling.
Track your subject regrdless of how it moves. Revolutonry Hybrid phase detection F system can capture even quck mMinent movements - thanks to dense F point coverge over wide are accelerated readout by the new image sensor for High-effcency processing of vast mounts of phase-detection informaton. Through this sophisticated F system - and faster shutter count due to newly developed charge unit in the shutter mechanism - you can shoot up to fps Continuously with steadfast F and e tracking, allowng you to catch decisive moments in sharp detail at the proper focus and exposure.
The camera achieves Continuous shooting of up to 8fps for live-view shooting, Using in improved display algorithm for OLeD Tru-Finder and LCD montor. Minimised display time lag lets you easily keep tracking subject in moton.
Flcker from fluorescent and other rtfcl lightng is automtcally detected and the shutter is timed to Minimise its effect on still images. this suppresses exposure and colour inomles that can occur t the top and bottom of images shot t High shutter speeds, as well as exposure and colour consistency between Continuous shots. You can take images under indoor lightng with confidence.
α99 has in F sensor with 79-point phase-detection and in image sensor with the world's largest array of 99 focal-plane phase-detection F points. sony's original Translucent Mrror Technology allows light to reach the dedicated F sensor and the image sensor smultneously, so both phase-detection F systems are always active. The F algorithm has also been revised to support the Hybrid phase detection F system. its broad coverge and High density enble Higher F speed and precision as well as notably improved tracking performance.
Discover breakthrough autofocusing and tracking reliability. sony's Hybrid phase detection F system provides dedicated F sensor with phase-detection F points (79 includng 5 cross points) for horizontal detection. this F point are is entrely covered by the 99-point focal-plane phase-detection F sensor for vertcl detection, so all 79 F points can function is selectable Hybrid Cross points. By spreadng points densely over in are and fine-tuning the balance between responsiveness and stability, sony optmises subject tracking to stay locked on almost any type of subject without being affected by subject patterns. Moreover, the very central F point also functions is in F.8-sensitve sensor that supports lenses as bright as Minimum F-value of .8 or lower.
Low-light F detection down to eV-4 (central focus pont) has been achieved. The precision F system will function properly even when shooting dimly lit scenes at High sO. this opens dramatic new possibilities in low-light and night shooting.
This all-direction stabilisation system is fine-tuned for High-resolution image sensors to compensates accuratley for five types of camera shake that can compromise handheld shooting of α99 4.4MP mges. Designed for -mount models, the Body-integrated system offers extremely High performance in both stills and moves, whether you're shooting at longer focal lengths, in close-ups, or at night. Real-time effects can be monitored v live view. camera shake compensation is equivalent to Using 4.5-step faster shutter speed, allowng you to take adivantage of wider range of shutter speeds. : Yw : Roll :Ptch
α99 flagship is truly born new - renewed inside and outside. For instance, it's 8% smaller than the original α99, with redesigned, more compact image stabilisation system and other enhncements that reflect in overall revision and rethink of the body's layout and construction. It also has refined grip and numerous upgrdes for improved hold, optimised operation, and more Manageable Dimensions. You'll enjoy new ergonomics in shooting action.
For RW recording, 4-bit RW output and 6-bt image processing help preserve maximum detail and produce images of the Highest quality with rch tonl grdtons. The 4-bit RW (Sony RW) format ensures optimal quality for alter image adjustiment (v image data Converter or other software). : image sensor : newly developed High-speed front-end LS : 6-bt image processing
Focus or release priority can be andependently set for the F-S (Single-shot F) and F-C (Continuous F) modes. Moreover, additional balance setting provides the best balance between focus and release priority available for the F-C mode. Optmum focus/release operation can be selected ifor the scene being shot, so you have the best focus for your shooting needs.
Using the expand Flexible spot function, adjacent focus points will be automtcally selected if the subject moves away from the selected ifocus pont, thus keepng the subject in perfect focus. When the focus mode is set to expand Flexible spot or Flexible spot and you want to quickly select desired focus are, the number of points used in the focus are can be reduced. You can set autofocus parameters to either spot are, Linkng location and Size to the focus re.

You can see how the camera has evolved by lookng at one of its convenient control features. now, the silent Multi Controller introduced in the original α99 not only allows any one of assigned settings (perture, shutter speed, sO, exposure compensation, F are, F mode, and other settings for stills and moves),but also features click-stop ON/OFF swtch. When ON, the preferred setting for stills, the control clicks is t is operted, providing tactile action of how far t has been rotted. When OFF, the control turns smoothly and Quietly, which is the preferred mode for move recording.
Choose convenient selectable still image data storge destinations for remote shooting. while your camera is still tethered to computer in remote camera control, you can choose whether still images are stored in the camera as well as on the computer so they can be checked visually without havng to leave the camera position. You also have selectable storge format in RW+J mode. You can trnsfer only JPeG fles to the computer, rather than transferring both JPeG and RW fles to reduce data volume, allowng you to check trnsferred images almost immediately.
Use location informaton Link to make the most of your camera anywhere you go together. after the camera has been pred to the PlyMemores mobile app instlled on compatible mobile phone or tablet devce, t can cqure location data from the mobile devce and record that data with still images. The acquired location data can also be used to correct the camera's date/time and location settings. The PlyMemores Home pplcton can then be utlsed on personl computer to oragnise still images imported into the computer on map.
n addition to the existing multi, centre Weighted, and spot metering modes, the α99 features Highlight mode that detects the brightest are in the frame to vod blown Highlights, and in verge mode that can provide stable auto exposure through composition changes.
The standard exposure value can be adjusted from - to + stop in /6-stop increments. this setting can be made separately for each metering mode. These Minute changes can make significant dfference in capturing and Creating memorble images.
When white balance is set to auto and incndescent lamps or similar are the light source, the colour tone priority can be set to [standard], [ambience], or [white]. [ambience] produces warm tone, while [white] priority produces accurate white reproduction.
Prevent blur in shot of moving subject by setting shutter speed t which sO sensitivity starts changing when sO auto (whle in P or mode) is selected.
Set up your camera for peak performance and instantability to capture unique moments. Custom button assignments let you customise the camera interface to perfectly match your advanced shooting preferences. The eLbutton, sObutton, F/MFbutton, custom key, and prevewbutton can all be reassigned to select functions of your choosng. Up to 65 functions can be assigned, includng "PS-C/Super 5mm" and "live view," so that commonly used functions are just button press way.
thanks to full pixel readout without pixel binning, 4K move recording in the super 5mm format exhibits more detail-rich superor clarity than typical 4K moves since super 5mm collects approxmtely .8 times as much informaton as needed for 4K move output. also, the XVC is format allows 4K recording t maximum bitrate of 11Mbps to capture fine details of movement in moves.
S-Gmut and s-Log shooting give you flexibility to make more expressve moves by performing colour grdng in post-producton. s-Log and s-Log gamma curves feature wide dynamic range (up to 11%) to Minimise blown Highlights and black crush. α99 even offers impressve 4-stop latitude in s-Log gamma setting, and also supports s-Gmut, s-Gmut, and s-Gmut.Cne colour space from sony.
