With an incomparable new image sensor
Now, even more comprehensive quality enters the picture. With the world’s first back-illuminated 35 mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with 42.4 megapixels, the Sony α7R II takes image resolution, sensitivity (up to ISO 102,400) and speedy response to new heights. The Fast Hybrid AF system’s dense extra-wide focal plane phase-detection AF coverage keeps a subject in sharp focus entirely throughout the frame, while 5-axis image stabilization reduces blur which otherwise tends to affect handheld shots. High resolution is further enhanced by 4K movie recording featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning. With so much insight packed into such a compact form, it’s clear that there is more to life than meets the naked eye.
Higher resolution, sensitivity, and readout speed
As the world’s first 35 mm full-frame image sensor with back-illuminated structure, this 42.4-megapixel CMOS sensor enhances light collection efficiency, expands circuitry scale, and, with the help of a quick-transmission copper wiring layer, outputs data about 3.5 times faster, while minimizing image noise to reveal fine details in every picture.
Advanced features raise resolution even higher
Great performance achieves its full potential accompanied by an array of innovative features. With an outstanding 42.4-megapixel count, the new image sensor in the α7R II lets you explore the world in remarkable detail and the camera employs no optical low-pass filter that can compromise high resolution. To reduce image blur, the camera’s newly developed reduced-vibration shutter minimizes and Silent Shooting mode eliminates camera shake caused by shutter movement. And a growing family of FE lenses lets you witness more of the incomparable clarity that the sensor delivers from every perspective.
Make every shot look sharper
Without an optical low-pass filter that can compromise image clarity, the α7R II lets you take full advantage of the high-resolution image sensor and superior resolving power of α lenses.
More comprehensive AF coverage
399 AF points cover 45% of the total image area — more than any other digital camera can match.
More speedy AF response
Accelerated data readout (thanks to back-illuminated sensor) and the Fast Hybrid AF system raise AF speed by 40%.
More continuous shooting capability
Fast readout and advanced algorithm make predictive subject tracking extra-precise for 5fps shooting.
Neutralizing all kinds of camera shake
Compensation for five types of camera shake and minimal blur even in night shots show how the α7R II clearly makes the most of the image sensor’s 42.4-megapixel resolution.
The ultimate high-resolution movie experience
You can see how the α7R II is optimized for recording 4K (QFHD: 3,840 x 2,160) movies, particularly in Super 35 mm format, as it processes readout data from every pixel without pixel binning, to effectively suppress jaggies and more. The resulting footage exhibits visibly sharper, finer, more subtle detail than typical 4K movies. Also, as the first full-frame camera that can record movies at 4K resolution in the 35 mm full-frame format, the α7R II extends your power to express qualities of vision that the newly developed, back-illuminated full-frame image sensor makes possible.
Shoot footage in proper perspective
Select full-frame or Super 35 mm format when shooting in Full HD or 4K resolution, depending on your creative intentions. Either way, everything looks brilliant from edge to edge.
