Sony Announces the New Alpha a7SII

The new Sony a7SII with 4K internal recording

IBC just started and Sony already has exiting news for us! They just announced their highly anticipated Sony a7SII mirrorless digital camera. It has the same 12.2MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor as its predecessor (the Sony a7S), but as expected the new a7SII has internal 4K recording. It also features 5 axis stabilization like the Sony a7RII has, higher dynamic range and an improved XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF which supposedly offers the world's highest viewfinder magnification.

No word yet on availability, but pre-order starts Sep 17 at a price of $2,999.00.

Quick overview of all the new features:

  • Internal 4K recording to XAVC S (up to 30fps)
  • Internal 120fps to 1080p
  • clean 8-bit HDMI output in 4:2:2
  • 5-axis optical in-camera stabilization for expanded shooting possibilities
  • Ultra-high sensitivity up to 409600 ISO with low noise across the whole range
  • Wide range of professional movie functionality including S-Gamut3.Cine/S-Log3, new Gamma Assist Display, enhanced Zebra Function, Full HD 120fps recording and 4x/5x slow motion recording and full pixel readout without pixel binning in full-frame format
  • High-speed AF with enhanced accuracy in wide-ranging scenes and advanced shooting functions
