The A7 II Japanese engineers improved autofocus and introduced a solid, 5-axis stabilization of the matrix. There are also some minor changes in the structure of the body itself.

5-axis image stabilization
The mechanical stabilization will work with optical
The introduction of mechanical image stabilization in the A7 II is the most important change, about what might be tempted to Sony. According to CIPA standards, this solution will ensure efficiency at 4.5 EV steps. If we decide to hook up an additional glass of dedicated system OSS (Optical Image Stabilization present in the lens of the manufacturer), the camera will be able to use both of these ideas. Sony emphasizes that the combination of mechanical stability and optical limit the functionality of one to three axes. Type currently used stabilization will be displayed on the 3-inch flip screen; We can also manually enter the focal length, which should ensure greater efficiency.
Still a hybrid, but improved
module auto-focus still 117 points based on phase detection and contrast detection 25 points. The manufacturer contends that the same rate has increased by 30 percent. Also improved AF tracking mode, having now function with greater efficiency by 50 percent.
The matrix itself. Will R version?
24 megapixels on a full frame
In Sony A7 II, we find the same sensor with a resolution of 24.3 megapixels. It is not known at present whether the company will make an attempt to introduce 36-megapixel successor to this model; Last year, the versions were presented at the same time, and now we are celebrating the launch of only one camera. If we look at the other elements of the imaging system, we find the same X BIONZ image processor, support for 14-bit RAW files and support for the ISO sensitivity value 25,600th News appeared for the film mode, where there is support codecs XAVC S and S-Log2 service (algorithm to increase the dynamic range of the video) – so features borrowed from A7S.
Minor modifications in the structure
Larger, deeper grip
Building A7 II remains basically unchanged with respect to its predecessor. It should, however, emphasize noticeably deeper and more grip, which will be responsible for better ergonomics. The great thing is, moreover the presence of the front wheel, improved shutter button location and design more robust bayonet – we now bezlusterkowca podpinać heavier lenses.
Price and Availability
At the moment only in Japan
Sony A7 II will be sold – for now – only in Japan. At the moment we have no information as to the availability of housing in European distribution. Suggested retail price will be 190 thousand. yuan.
