Define the next dimension

With an incomparable new image sensor

Now, even more comprehensive quality enters the picture. With the world’s first2 back-illuminated 35 mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with 42.4 megapixels3, the Sony α7R II takes image resolution, sensitivity (up to ISO 1024004) 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.

World’s first2 back-illuminated full-frame sensor

Higher resolution, sensitivity, and readout speed

As the world’s first2 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 3.5x 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.

Clearer, more vibrant images

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.

  • No optical low-pass filter
  • Durable, reduced-vibration shutter
  • Silent Shooting mode
  • All FE lenses maximize resolution
  • 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.

    More comprehensive AF coverage

    399 AF points cover 45% of the total image area — more8 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%5.

    More continuous shooting capability

    Fast readout and advanced algorithm make predictive subject tracking extra-precise for 5fps shooting.

    Fast Hybrid AF for movies

    This system’s extra-precise, smooth focusing perfectly suits the higher requirements of 4K movies.

    Phase-detection AF with A-mount lens

    Advantages of the phase-detection AF are assured even with an A-mount lens mounted9 via LA-EA3 (LA-EA110).

    5-axis image stabilization in full-frame glory

    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.

  • 5-axis image stabilization
  • Wide lens compatibility
  • 4K movie quality hits an all-time high

    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 35 mm 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 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.

    Frame as you see fit

    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.

    High-bit-rate XAVC S format11

    XAVC S format now supports 4K recording at maximum 100 Mbps bit rate as well as Full HD recording at 50 Mbps, so the α7R II can capture movies filled with finely detailed movement.

     

    Ready for the long run

    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.
