Sony a7R II is a 42.4MP mirrorless camera with an image stabilized full-frame BSI CMOS sensor. The camera includes on-sensor phase detection elements for faster autofocus, which continues to work with other brands’ lenses. The mirrorless shooter also has a revised shutter mechanism, rated to 500,000 actuations but also promising less vibration than the one on its predecessor.

The Sony a7S II is the company’s flagship ‘hybrid’ stills and video mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Offering ultra-high sensitivity and wide dynamic range across the entire ISO range, the a7S II is ideally suited to capturing stills and video in challenging lighting conditions. Full-frame 4K video can be recorded internally with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, and full HD video can be captured at 120fps at 100Mbps.
