Sony’s Alpha 7s II to Have 4K Video, Up to 409,600 ISO
The Alpha 7s II is Sony’s latest offering and a successor to the Alpha 7s that was released last year. The Alpha 7s II will be a mirrorless, full-frame digital camera and will come with a 12-megapixel sensor much like the original. But it is in the new internal 4K video recording that makes the Alpha 7s II stand apart. While the original model could record 4K videos using an external recorder, the A7s II will have an in-built 4K recording (3,840 x 2,160) capability which can shoot at 24 or 30 fps. It can also record 1080p footage at 120 fps.
Furthermore, the A7s II boasts of a massive 50-409,600 ISO range that comes with a 12.2-megapixel sensor and the BIONZ X image processing. While the original model triumphed in capturing images in low-level light, the A7s II promises even better low-level light pictures.
One of the new features of this model is the 5-axis stabilization which will reduce the jitter on shots taken at night or with a long, telephoto lenses. The A7s II will also be Wi-Fi and NFC compatible, which will allow users to hook the camera to an Android or iOS device. Though the 12 megapixel camera may come as a disappointment for many, the 4K video recording will make up for it as videographers are sure to appreciate this feature. The A7s II will be available in Europe from November with no details about it coming to India.
