Sony a7S II ILCE-7SM2 E-mount Camera with Full-Frame Sensor

α7S II - Sensitivity mastered

Meet the α7S II - with ultra-high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, internal 4K movie recording and superior shooting stability.

Expand your expressive freedom

Brilliant features realise what you can imagine

Extend your powers of perception with the new α7S II, for extra sensitivity, wide dynamic range, accurate focusing, and unshakeable stability to shoot with solid assurance.

Supreme light sensitivity

Sensitivity to ISO 4096002 and wide dynamic range refine stills/movies.

High-quality 4K movie recording

Delivers full pixel readout3 with no binning in full-frame format.

5-axis optical image stabilisation

Ensures stable expression of stills and movies using various lenses.

169-point Fast Intelligent AF

This fast, accurate AF system performs reliably in light as low as EV (Exposure Value) -4.

Pro-level movie functions

Advanced features such as S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log3 and 120fps Full HD recording support professional workflow.

More dynamic detail

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

35mm full-frame Exmor™ CMOS sensor

12.2 megapixels4, wide ISO and dynamic ranges, and advanced light capture for subtler gradation.

BIONZ X™ image processing engine

Advanced algorithm realises extra-fine detail with minimal noise in producing stills and movies.

New 14-bit uncompressed RAW format

Now more format options to choose from, for unbeatable quality and range of tonal nuance.

At the forefront of 4K

Now internally records 4K movies in full-frame format featuring full pixel readout3 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 α7S II can record internally in 4K full-frame format.

XAVC S format - more than a little bit better

This format allows 4K recording at up to 100Mbps 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 α7S II moviemaking performance.

Easy post-production tool expands expression

The S-Log3 offers better tonal reproduction from shadow to mid-tone (18% grey) than the S-Log2. The α7S II even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in S-Log3 gamma setting.

Extra stability for all shooting

Built-in stabilisation 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 stabilisation

For shooting movies and equivalent to 4.5-stop-faster shutter speed for stills.

For a wide range of mountable lenses

Stabilisation 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 α7S 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 α7S II integrates advanced functions that are worthy of extraordinary imaging performance in the long run.
