Full Details

5-axis image stabilisation

The Sony a7 II dramatically expands your range of expression by compensating for five types of camera shake during handheld shooting of still images and movies. The highly effective 4.5-step compensation lets you confidently zoom in faraway subjects, snap detailed close-ups, capture night scenes and more - all with minimal camera shake blur.

Compatibility with wide-ranging mountable lenses

New 5-axis image stabilisation lets you enjoy unparalleled handheld shooting freedom with more of your favourite mountable lenses. The short flange-back distance in the E-mount a7 II contributes to broad lens compatibility.

Automatic optimisation for every Alpha lens

Confidently use your favourite E-mount and A-mount lenses, knowing the a7 II will analyse information from the lens to optimise depiction performance and 5-axis image stabilisation for the particular lens you mount. When using E-mount lenses with optical stabilisation (OSS), the α7 II combines the best of in-lens and in-camera image stabilisation.

High-performance Fast Hybrid AF

The newly enhanced Fast Hybrid AF system delivers extremely high-speed response, highly accurate prediction and wide area coverage for autofocusing and tracking you can always depend on. It’s remarkably fast for a full-frame camera AF system (30% faster than the α7) and accurately predicts subject movement so you can steadfastly track your subject.

Focal plane phase-detection AF with A-mount lenses

The α7 II offers focal plane phase-detection AF even when an A-mount lens is mounted5 via LAEA3(LA-EA1) mount adaptor. So you can take advantage of the wide AF coverage , high-speed response, high tracking capability and high optical performance of Amount lenses.

35mm full-frame 24.3-megapixel Exmor™ CMOS sensor

The image sensor delivers beautiful images from corner to corner and stunning 24.3-megapixel resolution. You’ll enjoy low noise, an extremely wide dynamic range, and amazingly rich and subtle gradations. Moreover, innovations that could only be achieved by Sony reproduce details more faithfully so that every scene looks incredibly real.

BIONZ X™ image processing engine

BIONZ X faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time, as seen by the naked eye, via extra high-speed processing capabilities. Together with front-end Large Scale Integration that accelerates processing, it enables more natural details, more realistic images, richer tonal gradations and lower noise when shooting still images and movies.

Robust magnesium alloy body

The remarkably compact and lightweight body is solidly built to withstand the rigours of shooting in the field. It’s the ideal blend of light weight, solid reliability and steady handling, thanks to a top cover, front cover and internal structure constructed of rigid magnesium alloy.

Robust lens mount

The strength and rigidity of the body and lens mount have been enhanced to provide an especially solid foundation for mounting large, heavy lenses such as super telephoto lenses and those preferred for movie shooting.

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.

Full-frame expression without the bulk

The a7 II packs powerful moviemaking capabilities in extremely compact dimensions. You can create movies of breathtaking visual and sound quality with exquisite background blur, remarkably clear details, and the sensitivity to bring dark scenes to vibrant life. Features like Picture Profile and P/A/S/M modes further expand your creative options.

High-contrast, high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder™

The viewfinder offers impressive visibility that contributes to stress-free, intuitive operation. You can accurately monitor what will appear in your final images because it faithfully displays the effects of your various camera settings. Moreover, an advanced 3-lens optical system ensures rich tonal gradation and extremely high contrast.

Stable viewfinder image

Monitor the stabilising 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. Even when using a telephoto or macro lens, you can fine-tune framing and focusing with stress-free stability.

Lock-on AF tracking

It’s easy to keep moving subjects in focus with enhanced Lock-on AF, which analyses even more information from the scene to ensure usage of the optimal AF point for smooth, stable autofocusing. Its ability to detect and track moving subjects has now been significantly improved, thanks to Sony’s advanced proprietary image analysis technology.

Detail reproduction technology and diffraction-reducing technology

Detail reproduction technology depicts details more faithfully with a more natural sense of dimension, while diffraction-reducing technology suppresses the effects of diffraction to faithfully reproduce fine details even when shooting at small aperture settings.

Area-specific noise reduction

Area-specific noise reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and flat areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction for each area to markedly reduce noise and achieve a new level of clarity.

Picture Profile

Fine-tune the look of movies before shooting by adjusting gradation, colour adjustment and detail. Adjusted parameters can be saved with other settings as a profile, and up to 7 profiles can be stored for later recall.

S-Log gamma setting

This proprietary Sony gamma setting, featured in professional camcorders, creates a 1,300% wider dynamic range for smooth expression of gradation with reduced whiteout and blackout. Through colour grading in post-production, you can make the most of the low-noise image and super-rich detail to achieve various types of image expression.

Time code / User bit

This function provides a “Record Run” setting that only advances the time code while recording, a “Free Run” setting that advances the time code whether recording or not, a drop frame method and a non-drop frame method. The α7 II can also output an embedded time code when the clean HDMI output setting is in use.

Clean HDMI output

An HDMI terminal makes it easy to transfer Full HD movie signals in real-time to an external monitor for accurate, large-screen viewing and listening. This feature supports uncompressed movie recording on external recording equipment and lets you output uncompressed movies with the shooting info display function off.

Meticulously crafted controls

Controls are refined for intuitive operation and immediate adjustment of parameters while viewing scenes through the viewfinder. The front and rear dials have been thoroughly refined and positioned with overall handling in mind to enable easier, more efficient turning. It’s a level of refinement that even surpasses that of other a7 series models.

Easy button customisation

Button customisation empowers you to shoot just the way you like, with frequently used functions assigned to the customisable buttons of your choice. You can easily assign any of 56 functions to any of 10 buttons to enjoy speedier, more intuitive operation and maximum convenience.

Convenient tiltable LCD screen

The LCD screen tilts upward approx. 107 degrees and downward approx. 41 degrees to accommodate wide-ranging shooting angles. This flexibility combines with compact mobility to greatly expand your shooting options. Viewing is also clear under direct sunlight thanks to WhiteMagic™ technology that nearly doubles the brightness of the display.

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.

Multi Frame NR (Noise Reduction)

This mode 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.

One-touch remote and one-touch sharing

One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing Imaging Edge Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

5fps AF/AE shooting with accurate tracking

When your subject is moving fast, you can beautifully capture the decisive moment with sharp, well-exposed results via 5fps continuous AF/AE shooting. A dramatically improved algorithm accurately predicts subject movement so you can steadfastly track the subject even when shooting continuously.

Pro-quality XAVC S format

For extremely high image quality and minimal noise, record movies in the high-bit-rate XAVC S format, which was developed based on the professional XAVC 4K/HD format. It enables Full HD (1920 x 1080) image recording at 50Mbps (60p/50p, 30p/25p, 24p) and employs linear PCM sound for high-quality sound recording.

Capture One (for Sony)

Capture One Express (for Sony) is a free award-winning image editing software that provides high-end image quality RAW development, easy management of your image files, and powerful editing tools. Capture One Pro (for Sony) can be bought for even more editing tools and tethered shooting capability.

Our Verdict

With its magnesium alloy body borrowed from the Sony A7S, the A7II is heavier than its predecessor and feels sturdier in the hand with the redesigned grip, command dials and shutter.

The A7II boasts a very respectable 24.3MP sensor and will happily shoot 1080 Full HD movies, but with an ISO sensitivity from 50-25,600, this camera is designed for professional photographers looking for a more compact camera system than traditional DSLR bodies.

However, it's the A7 II's really impressive 5-axis image stabilisation system and the improved autofocus system that means it stands out from the crowd and sits as a worthy contender in Sony's A7 compact system camera range.

The A7 II sits comfortably in the Sony A7 series of cameras as a sizable improvement on its predecessor the Sony A7. Making use of Sony's E-Mount lenses opens up a whole range of shooting possibilities for those looking for a viable alternative to a full frame DSLR, as well as the full-frame specific Sony FE-Mount lenses range.

We Love

  • Full-frame 24.3MP CMOS Sensor
  • Advanced Hybrid AF system
  • 5-axis image stabilisations system
  • Rugged full magnesium alloy body
  • Wireless transfer with Wi-Fi and NFC
