Sony, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer, has today introduced the new flagship full-frame mirrorless camera, the α7R II. The new α7R II interchangeable lens camera features the world’s first back-illuminated full- frame Exmor R™ CMOS sensor 1, which realises high-resolution (approximately 42.4 effective megapixels), high-sensitivity (expandable up to ISO 102400) 2 and high-speed AF response up to 40 per cent faster than the original α7R, thanks to 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points. The camera also includes a 5-axis image stabilisation system borrowed from the acclaimed α7 II model, and has the ability to shoot and record 4K videos in multiple formats including Super
35mm (without pixel binning) and full-frame format, a world’s first for digital cameras.
Additionally, it has a newly refined XGA OLED Tru-Finder™ with the world’s highest (0.78x) viewfinder magnification 3.
