Define the next dimension With an incomparable new image sensor.

Now, even more comprehensive quality enters the picture. With the world’s first back-illuminated 35mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with 42.4 megapixels, the Sony α7R II takes image resolution, sensitivity (up to ISO 102400) and speedy response to new heights. The Fast Hybrid AF system's dense extra-wide focal plane phase-detection AF coverage keeps a subject in sharp focus entirely throughout the frame, while 5-axis image stabilization reduces blur which otherwise tends to affect handheld shots. High resolution is further enhanced by 4K movie recording featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning. With so much insight packed into such a compact form, it's clear that there is more to life than meets the naked eye.

World’s first back-illuminated full-frame sensor

Higher resolution, sensitivity, and readout speed

As the world’s first1 35mm full-frame image sensor with back-illuminated structure, this 42.4-megapixel CMOS sensor enhances light collection efficiency, expands circuitry scale, and, with the help of a quick-transmission copper wiring layer, outputs data about 3.5 times faster, while minimizing image noise to reveal fine details in every picture.

Clearer, more vibrant images

Advanced features raise resolution even higher

Great performance achieves its full potential accompanied by an array of innovative features. With an outstanding 42.4-megapixel count, the new image sensor in the α7R II lets you explore the world in remarkable detail and the camera employs no optical low-pass filter that can compromise high resolution. To reduce image blur, the camera's newly developed reduced-vibration shutter minimizes and Silent Shooting mode eliminates camera shake caused by shutter movement. And a growing family of FE lenses lets you witness more of the incomparable clarity that the sensor delivers from every perspective.

No camera shake from shutter movement

The Silent Shooting mode features an electronic shutter that is noiseless and causes no curtain vibration, so you can shoot high-resolution images without camera shake.

More comprehensive AF coverage

399 AF points cover 45% of the total image area — more than any other digital camera can match.

More speedy AF response

Accelerated data readout (thanks to back-illuminated sensor) and the Fast Hybrid AF system raise AF speed by 40%.

More continuous shooting capability

Fast readout and advanced algorithm make predictive subject tracking extra-precise for 5fps shooting.

Fast Hybrid AF for movies

This system's extra-precise, smooth focusing perfectly suits the higher requirements of 4K movies.

Phase-detection AF with A-mount lens

Advantages of the phase-detection AF are assured even with an A-mount lens mounted via LA-EA3 (LA-EA1).

4K movie quality hits an all-time high

The ultimate high-resolution movie experience

You can see how the α7R II is optimized for recording 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movies, particularly in Super 35mm format, as it processes readout data from every pixel without pixel binning, to effectively suppress jaggies and moire. The resulting footage exhibits visibly sharper, finer, more subtle detail than typical 4K movies. Also, as the first full-frame camera that can record movies at 4K resolution in the 35mm full-frame format, the α7R II extends your power to express qualities of vision that the newly developed, back-illuminated full-frame image sensor makes possible.

Frame as you see fit

Shoot footage in proper perspective

Select full-frame or Super 35mm format when shooting in Full HD or 4K resolution, depending on your creative intentions. Either way, everything looks brilliant from edge to edge.

Ready for the long run

Focus on strength, smarts and reliability

The α7R II is the toughest, most durable α camera ever made, solidly engineered for action under all conditions, even with large lenses attached. It's also designed with sophistication, integrating advanced functions that seamlessly complement the image sensor's extraordinary 42.4-megapixel high resolution.
