The Sony Alpha a7R II Mirrorless Digital Camera features a full-frame 35mm Exmor R CMOS sensor with back-illuminated structure. The structure combines gapless on-chip lens design and AR (anti-reflective) coating on the surface of the sensor's glass seal (with no low-pass filter) to dramatically improve light collection efficiency, even though the pixels are smaller than the ones in the a7R. Moreover, the wiring layer now uses copper rather than aluminum wiring for faster transmission speed. This design results in 42.4 megapixel stills, 4K video with sensitivity up to ISO 102,4003, low-noise performance, and wide dynamic range that is superior to previous models.

The 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system is fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors. It accurately compensates for blur caused by camera shake from five different directions (vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw, and roll) as opposed to only two directions in previous systems. The 5-axis image stabilizing system excels during video recording and even compensates for blur caused by the photographer walking or running. The user can even monitor the stabilizing effects of camera shake compensation in the viewfinder or LCD screen while shooting still images by pressing the shutter button halfway or magnifying the image, and while shooting movies by entering movie mode.

The a7R II is the world's first camera to offer 4K movie recording to internal media in the full-frame format. It also provides you the option of shooting 4K in Super 35mm format. Enjoy the expansive power that the full-frame image sensor can express in 4K with direct pixel readout and no line skipping. In S35 format, the α7R II employs oversampling with full pixel readout and no line skipping or pixel binning, resulting in images that exhibit higher resolution and less moiré and jaggies than typical 4K footage. Fast hybrid AF with 399 phase detection AF points and 5-axis image stabilization make rapid-paced shooting in challenging environments less difficult.

NOTE: a software update enables 14-bit uncompressed RAW format on this camera system.
