2013 was the year when Sony marked an important milestone in the history of photography, as they announced worls’s first full-frame mirror-less cameras, the Sony A7 and A7R. And then by now many models of that camera has been there in the market and one of them is Sony A7 II.
The Sony Alpha 7 II is the follow-up to the Alpha 7 and adds 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization to its 24MP full frame CMOS sensor. From a design standpoint, additional improvements in this model include more rugged build quality, a new front dial, and a relocated shutter release button. Sony has introduced an update to the A7 in the appearance of the Alpha A7 II. However, some users may find that the changes are rather small as, like the vast majority of the new camera’s compoonents, the sensor is the same full-frame (35.8 x 23.9mm) 24MP Exmor CMOS device is used in the original Alpha A7.
The A7 II contains 5-Axis Snesor-Shift Stabilization. It is the world’s first full frame camera. It can dramatically expand the range of expression by compensating for five types of camera shake while shotting still images and movies. It provides 30% faster AF Speed and 50% better tracking, which means that AF gets lock extremely quick – even in low light – and detects motion objects using lock-on AF.
Sony A7 II LCD has 1,230k dot resolution with 107/41A○ tilt vs 921k dot resolution with 90/45A○ tilt on Sony A7. The control wheel of the A7 II does not adjust ISO without first selecting activating that control wheel. This relatively small change but a good change can put end to “phantom ISO changes” – caused when control wheel brushes against your body. Hence there is no nore ISO surprises. A7 II includes several features of A7S including the option to shoot video with S-LOG 2 to capture extremely wide dynamic range. This gives the flexibility to grade the scene to your taste in post.
The A7 II start-up is almost instantaneous. Start-up initialization steps reordered for faster start-up – so that no one would have to spend extra time to for the camera to boot up.
The Sony Alpha A7 II can be a superb camera that has all the plus of a full frame sensor without being bulky., it has good AF, excellent image stabilization and produces high quality images in a wide range of conditions.
