7 II E-mount Camera with Full Frame Sensor

Sony ILCE7M2KB

Features

  • The 7 II dramatically expands your range of expression by compensating for five types of camera shake during handheld shooting of still images and movies. The highly effective 4.5-step compensation lets you confidently zoom in on faraway subjects, snap detailed close-ups, capture night scenes and more-all with minimal camera shake blur.
  • New 5-axis image stabilization lets you enjoy unparalleled handheld shooting freedom with more of your favorite mountable lenses. The short flange-back distance in the E-mount 7 II contributes to broad lens compatibility.
  • Confidently use your favorite E-mount and A-mount lenses, knowing the 7 II analyzes information from the lens to optimize depiction performance and 5-axis image stabilization for the particular lens you mount. When using E-mount lenses with optical stabilization (OSS), the 7 II combines the best of in-lens and in-camera image stabilization.
  • The newly enhanced Fast Hybrid AF system delivers extremely high-speed response, highly accurate prediction, and wide area coverage for autofocusing and tracking you can always depend on. It's remarkably fast for a full-frame camera AF system (30% faster than the 7) and accurately predicts subject movement so you can steadfastly track your subject.

World's first 5-axis in-body image stabilization in a full-frame camera. Reduce blur caused by camera shake from five different directions-vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw and roll-as opposed to only two 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. It's a true marvel of engineering.

Use your favorite lenses with minimized blur from camera shake. With image stabilization built it into the body of the camera itself, mounted lenses-even A-mount or non-Sony lenses using an adaptor 2-can utilize the 5-axis image stabilization for both still images and video. It even enhances lenses that already have optical image stabilization systems.

Even when using a telephoto or macro lens, you can fine-tune framing and focusing with stress-free stability.
  • It's easy to keep moving subjects in focus with enhanced Lock-on AF, which analyzes even more information from the scene to ensure usage of the optimal AF point for smooth, stable autofocusing. Its ability to detect and track moving subjects is significantly improved, thanks to Sony's advanced proprietary image analysis technology.
  • Detail reproduction technology depicts details more faithfully with a more natural sense of dimension, while diffraction-reducing technology suppresses the effects of diffraction to faithfully reproduce fine details even when shooting at small aperture settings.
  • Area-specific noise reduction selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures, and flat areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction to each area to markedly reduce noise and achieve a new level of clarity.
  • Fine-tune the look of movies before shooting by adjusting gradation, color adjustment, and detail. Adjusted parameters can be saved with other settings as a profile, and up to seven profiles can be stored for later recall.
  • This proprietary Sony gamma setting, featured in professional camcorders, creates a 1,300% wider dynamic range for smooth expression of gradation with reduced whiteout and blackout. Through color grading in postproduction, you can make the most of the low-noise image and super-rich detail to achieve various types of image expression.
  • This function provides a Record Run setting that only advances the timecode while recording, a Free Run setting that advances the timecode whether recording or not, a drop frame method, and a non-drop frame method. The 7 II can also output an embedded timecode when the clean HDMI output setting is in use.
