The Sony A7sII is Here With a Myriad of Intriguing Features
In a big press event at IBC 2015 Sony just announced the highly anticipated Sony A7sII, providing the same lowlight capabilities as its predecessor with internal 4K recording.
It’s the first day at IBC 2015 and besides the announcement of the new Sony FS5 Sony just surprised us with the introduction of the Sony a7SII.
The Sony a7SII features the same highly potent Full-Frame sensor as the original Sony A7s that sports ultra-high sensitivity up to 409600 ISO with low noise and high dynamic range.
The A7sII inherits the new 5-axis in-camera stabilization we saw on the Sony A7rII that gives you optical image stabilization with any lens.
Obviously internal 4K recording is the biggest new feature to look forward to. The camera records to the same XAVC S codec we have become used to from the original A7s, using the full 4K image area of the sensor, which was previously only possible via an external recorder.
Also new is the addition of S-log3 gamma, enhanced zebra functionality and 120fps recording at FullHD resolution.
The XGA OLED View-Finder in the A7sII has been upgraded and apparently offers the world’s highest viewfinder magnification.
All new features at a glance:
- Strong lowlight capabilities at 409600 ISO
- 5-axis optical in-camera stabilization
- Internal 4K recording to XAVC S (up to 30fps)
- Internal 120fps to 1080p
- clean 8-bit HDMI output in 4:2:2
Expected release is November 2015 and it costs $2999. PRE ORDER HERE
