Sony a7S II Full Frame Mirrorless Camera - Body


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.

Sensitivity mastered
Meet the 7S II  with ultra-high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, internal 4K movie recording and superior shooting stability.

Expand your expressive freedom
Brilliant features realize what you can imagine

Extend your powers of perception with the new 7S II, for extra sensitivity, wide dynamic range, accurate focusing, and unshakeable stability to shoot with solid assurance.

More dynamic detail
Ultra-high sensitivity, extra-wide dynamic range and improved image processing algorithm deliver high-quality images with spectacular details.

35 mm full-frame Exmor® CMOS sensor
12.2 megapixels3, wide ISO and dynamic ranges, and advanced light capture for subtler gradation.

BIONZ X image processing engine
Advanced algorithm realizes extra-fine detail with minimal noise in producing stills and movies.

At the forefront of 4K
Now internally records 4K movies in full-frame format featuring full pixel readout5 without pixel binning, and includes an array of advanced movie functions.

4K movies of the foremost quality
Expansive power to express images of fine details with less moiré, jaggies and noise is evident in movies that the 7S II can record internally in 4K full-frame format.

XAVC S format6  more than a little bit better
This format allows 4K recording at up to 100 Mbps bit rate to capture detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Files are saved in widely compatible MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format.

For a more professional workflow
More versatile functions for better moviemaking

Picture Profile tone adjustment, time code/user bit precision editing, and various other newly added advancements sharpen the cutting edge of 7S II moviemaking performance.

Easy post-production tool expands expression
The S-Log3 offers better tonal reproduction from shadow to mid-tone (18% gray) than the S-Log2. The 7S II even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting.

Extra stability for all shooting
Built-in stabilization clarifies every situation

Compensation for five types of camera shake that can blur stills/movies shot handheld matches the camera's great sensitivity so you can use more shutter speed/ISO/aperture settings.

5-axis optical image stabilization
For shooting movies and equivalent to 4.5-stop-faster shutter speed for stills.

For a wide range of mountable lenses
Stabilization extends handheld shooting freedom with mountable lenses.

Focus with more finesse
Fast Intelligent AF accelerates speed and precision

With advanced Fast Intelligent AF featuring enhanced accuracy even in the dark and accelerated AF for movie shooting, the 7S II helps to assure that you capture clear stills and movies.

Smarter, sharper focus, segment by segment
With each of nine central AF points divided into 16 segments and noiseless clear images from the sensor, Fast Intelligent AF detects contrast accurately in light as low as EV -4.

Optimal operability
Expertly engineered for durability under duress

Ready for action under all conditions, even using large lenses, the 7S II integrates advanced functions that are worthy of extraordinary imaging performance in the long run.
