Sony's photographic masterclass gives mighty 24.3MP quality and a super-sharp OLED viewfinder. Building upon the Alpha 7's fine design, this Alpha 7 II mirrorless camera has a 5-axis image stabiliser and a reworked shape to make this powerhouse easier on the hand. When you combine that with returning features like the Fast Hybrid Autofocus and 3 inch tiltable LCD screen, you have the perfect compact system camera to catch any scene.
Powerful CMOS sensor
With a 24.3MP 35mm full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, you can really express your creativity. Shoot beautiful defocus effects, capture highly-realistic detail, even in low-light, and wow friends. Ensure every shade and tone comes to life with a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600.
Super-Stable Work Never let camera blur ruin a shot again with the sophisticated 5-axis image stabiliser. Clamping down on five types of camera shake, you'll snap from a distance, close-up or at night with absolute confidence. This feature works in both photo and video modes so whatever you make will have captivating clarity.
It's the finer details that really make a difference in photography. The advanced, high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine ensures that every aspect of the scene is faithfully reproduced even when you're shooting with deep focus and a high pixel count.
Sony has made the design more ergonomic and intuitive. The front-facing grip makes it a doddle to hold, while the repositioned shutter button gives it's a sleeker edge. Other interface changes like the slimmer front-and-rear dials, two customisable buttons on the top plate and dedicated dial to adjust exposure, ensure absolute convenience. The robust build also has dust and moisture resistant seals, so you're ready for any assignment.
Wi-Fi & NFC
Go anywhere, share anytime. Simply touch the camera against an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet to activate apps or share photos or movies - no extra cables, no complicated connections. Use built-in Wi-Fi to upload to social networks or connect to a PC or TV.
Capturing the moment demands speed and accuracy. Fast Intelligent Autofocus lets you react quickly to maximise the creative potential of the full-frame sensor. The OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder shows an exact view of even dimly lit scenes, in high contrast and high resolution.
4K Photos & Full HD
The high image quality and defocusing power of the full-frame sensor open up a world of detail. See your photos on a big screen 4K Ultra HD TV. Or use the camera's professional movie-making features to shoot detailed Full HD movies in 60p, or 24p for that
28-70mm Lens Included
With its f3.5-5.6 aperture range, this lightweight Full-Frame zoom lens has the versatile quality to suit your everyday needs. Capture crisp close-ups with the 70mm zoom, or sweeping landscapes with a larger aperture setting for even sharpness. Its 7-blade structure gives beautiful defocusing, while the built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabiliser irons out shake, making each snap blur-free. To top that it all off, this lens has a dust and moisture resistant design.
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.
