Full-frame advantage, BIONZ X performance

  • Equipped with a 35mm full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, the a7 II captures stunning images with a wide dynamic range and true-to-life colour reproduction in 24.3MP resolution. Play back and admire the lifelike, vibrant colours of the wildflowers in your garden, output in brilliant 4K resolution on your compatible TV.
  • The BIONZ X image processing engine faithfully reproduces textures as seen by the naked eye for more realistic images with precise detail and richer tonal gradations. You won't just capture the myriad of eyes and fangs of a spider hanging in your garden, but also the droplets of dew suspended in its web.
  • Featuring a native ISO sensitivity range of 100 to 25600, the Exmor sensor and BIONZ X combine to deliver incredibly detailed images with exceptional clarity, texture, and low noise when shooting in low light at mid to high ISO ranges. Easily capture all of the splendor of your lantern-lit backyard in sharp detail.

Focused and stable

  • Built-in 5-axis image stabilization compensates for 5 types of commonly experienced camera shake, including pitch at yaw at long focal lengths, horizontal and vertical shift at high magnification, and roll during long exposure. Shoot everything from once-in-a-lifetime events to everyday situations, worry-free.
  • Capture decisive moments and fast-moving subjects with 5fps continuous AF/AE shooting. Thanks to a predictive algorithm that expertly tracks your subject's movements, the a7 II delivers sharp, well-exposed images shot continuously.
  • Enhanced Lock-on AF tracking keeps moving subjects in sharp focus, so capturing the erratic flying of a hummingbird dancing through your garden is smooth and stable.
  • Fast Hybrid AF system delivers a much wider coverage area using 117-point phase-detection autofocus and 25-point contrast-detection autofocus. Phase detection sensors help focus on the playful raccoon bounding across your yard, as well as his off-centre companion in hot pursuit.

Capture and record like a pro

  • The a7 II records in XAVC S format, ensuring you get maximum clarity and detail. XAVC S records at 50Mbps for Full HD 1080p (60p/50p, 30p/25p, 24p) footage. It also uses linear PCM sound recording for high-quality audio.
  • Dual video recording allows you to simultaneously record an XAVC S and an MP4 movie, or an AVCHD and an MP4 movie.
  • The a7 II supports 14-bit uncompressed RAW format, making the most of the full-frame sensor's wide dynamic range and ensuring maximum quality of tonal gradation.

Frame the shot the way you want

  • High-contrast XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder lets you view your surroundings in rich detail. Preview your recordings, including the effects of camera settings, so you can tweak exposure, colour, and focus before taking the picture.
  • Tiltable 3-inch 1229K-dot LCD screen flips up about 107 degrees and down 41 degrees so you can indulge in perfectly framed low-angle shots, and change your view on a whim. Dare to stand on the cliff's edge and photograph the plunging depths below.
  • WhiteMagic technology makes it easy to see the LCD screen under direct sunlight. WhiteMagic almost doubles the brightness of the display for at-a-glance reviewing of focus and image details.

Professional convenience

  • Shoot like a pro thanks to instant access to the features you need to shoot on the fly, including full manual control and 10 customizable buttons that allow you to assign 1 of 56 functions to any of those buttons. Quickly choose shooting modes and camera settings with a rear-mounted control wheel and top scroll wheel.
  • The a7 II sports advanced shooting features, such as a zebra assist and focus peaking. Zebra assist mode allows you to see what areas in your frame are overexposed, while focus peaking lets you see what areas of the frame are in focus. The a7 II also has 13 creative filters, auto HDR, and more, allowing you to add unique flair to your images.
  • Equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe, the a7 II lets you take advantage of a range of accessories, such as video lights and shotgun microphones (not included) to help you create more professional-looking videos.

Expertly built

  • Compact, lightweight design, features a robust magnesium alloy body and lens mount that's dust and moisture resistant. Get peace of mind that your gear will survive if the weather becomes unfriendly.
  • An anti-dust system and anti-static coating ensure that dry or moist particles that could get in when you're swapping lenses won't stick to the optical filter, keeping your photos blemish free.
  • A beefy pistol grip and repositioned shutter button ensure a secure natural hold on the camera. Enjoy comfortable handheld shooting with less camera shake, even with a large lens.

Share your highlights

  • With Sony's PlayMemories Camera Apps, you can find apps that'll let you control and view your camera from a Wi-Fi-enabled smartphone, as well as share and save photos. Post those thrilling shots of your multi-day hike directly on Facebook, given you can find a Wi-Fi connection in the wild.
  • Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity make wireless file transfers and one-touch pairing easy. The PlayMemories Mobile app lets you touch your camera to an Android smartphone or tablet, and create an instant connection through NFC for sharing, remote control, and basic editing.
  • Sony's lithium-ion rechargeable NP-FW50 battery lasts up to 350 stills on a single charge, while the innovative InfoLITHIUM battery system lets you see the power percentage remaining so you can shoot with confidence.

Performance optics

  • The included FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS zoom lens is designed for use with full-frame sensors, offering exceptional optical performance with the a7 II.
  • This compact, lightweight lens features ED and aspherical elements for reliably sharp and detailed images well suited to everyday shooting.
  • The 28-70mm focal range offers many commonly used focal lengths all in one lens. The built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps reduce motion blur when shooting handheld.

  • Best Buy of the year for me

    from Toronto on June 23, 2019

    I always wanted a full frame camera and at the same time one which doesn’t weigh or feel like a brick in terms of form factor and weight. The Sony Alpha A7 II is just what the doctor ordered. Excellent picture quality with reasonable lens ecosystem and extreme travel friendliness.
