Sony A7rii Camera body
Explore the world in remarkable detail with the world’s first 42.4MP back-illuminated full-frame sensor.
Ultimate 4K Experience
Featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning and 4K recording at 100Mbps, the α7R II can capture movies that exhibit higher resolution than typical 4K movies.
Comprehensive AF Coverage
Focus is clearer and more accurate, thanks to the α7R II’s Fast Hybrid Auto Focus system and 399 phase-detection AF points built onto the sensor.
World’s first2 back-illuminated full-frame sensor
As the world’s first2 35mm 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 faster5, while minimizing image noise to reveal fine details in every picture.
Faster, smarter, truer processing
The BIONZ X™ image processing engine efficiently and finely tunes the new image sensor’s vast 42.4-megapixel data, for truer, clearer, more natural, low-noise image depiction.
New 14-bit uncompressed RAW format
Now more format options to choose from, for unbeatable quality and range of tonal nuance.
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.
Fast Hybrid AF sharpens up
Thanks to an advanced image sensor and AF algorithm, the α7R II’s Fast Hybrid AF system delivers far superior AF coverage, speed and tracking performance.
Fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors
To optimize the benefit of the α7R II’s amazing high-resolution capability, especially when shooting unpredictable action or while you’re in motion, the act of shooting should be as steady as possible — otherwise, even slight camera shake can risk blurring the shot. The 5-axis image stabilization system is carefully fine-tuned to match the 42.4-megapixel performance of the α7R II, so you can zoom in on faraway subjects, shoot close-ups and capture night scenes with minimal camera shake blur to achieve maximum clarity.
The ultimate high-resolution movie experience
You can see how the α7R II is optimized for recording 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movies, particularly in Super 35mm format, as it processes readout data from every pixel without pixel binning, to effectively suppress jaggies and moire. The resulting footage exhibits visibly sharper, finer, more subtle detail than typical 4K movies. Also, as the first2 full-frame camera that can record movies at 4K resolution in the 35mm 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.
Focus on strength, smarts and reliability
The α7R II is the toughest, most durable α camera ever made, solidly engineered for action under all conditions, even with large lenses attached. It’s also designed with sophistication, integrating advanced functions that seamlessly complement the image sensor’s extraordinary 42.4-megapixel high resolution.
