SONY ALPHA7S II
The Sony Alpha 7S II is a flagship 'hybrid' stills and video mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Offering ultra-high sensitivity and wide dynamic range across the entire ISO range plus 5-axis image stabilization for greater shooting control, the a7S II is ideally suited to capturing stills and video in challenging lighting conditions. Full-frame 4K video can be recorded internally with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, and full HD video can be captured at 120fps at 100Mbps. The Sony Alpha 7S II delivers an ISO sensitivity range of ISO 50-4096001 for both stills and video capture.
In addition to 4K video capture at 30p or 24p at up to 100Mbps bit rate, the A7S II also has Full HD recording up to 60p at 50Mbps in XAVC S mode, as well as a 1080/120p frame rate at both 100Mbps and 60Mbps for improved slow-motion effects. Full HD video capture also uses the full width of the full-frame image sensor without line skipping or pixel binning, like the A7R II, for highly-detailed high-def video. The Sony Alpha 7S II can also record some in-camera High Frame Rate video, though not nearly as slow as the nifty HFR modes in the new RX100 IV and RX10 II. Nevertheless, capturing at 120fps , the A7S II can record a 4x or 5x Full HD slow motion video -- a first for a full-frame sensor camera -- with the final output frame rate of 30p or 24p, respectively.

Sensitivity to ISO 409600 and wide dynamic range refine stills/movies. More dynamic detail - Ultra-high sensitivity, extra-wide dynamic range and improved image processing algorithm deliver high-quality images with spectacular details.
35 mm full-frame Exmor® CMOS sensor - 12.2 megapixels4, wide ISO and dynamic ranges, and advanced light capture for subtler gradation.
BIONZ X™ image processing engine - Advanced algorithm realizes extra-fine detail with minimal noise in producing stills and movies.
New 14-bit uncompressed RAW format - Now more format options to choose from, for unbeatable quality and range of tonal nuance.

The α7S II can record 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movies internally in full-frame format. Full pixel readout9 without pixel binning produces 4K movies with less moiré and jaggies. Support for XAVC S format 8 enables 4K recording at maximum of 100 Mbps, for highly detailed footage with less impact from compression noise. * Internal recording and HDMI output, both at 4K resolution, are available in full-frame format.
Delivers full pixel readout with no binning in full-frame format. Now internally records 4K movies in full-frame format featuring full pixel readout3 without pixel binning, and includes an array of advanced movie functions.
Expansive power to express images of fine details with less moiré, jaggies and noise is evident in movies that the α7S II can record internally in 4K full-frame format.
XAVC S format6 — more than a little bit better. This format allows 4K recording at up to 100 Mbps bit rate to capture detailed movies with minimal compression noise. Files are saved in widely compatible MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format.
More versatile functions for better moviemaking - Picture Profile tone adjustment, time code/user bit precision editing, and various other newly added advancements sharpen the cutting edge of α7S II moviemaking performance.

Built-in stabilization clarifies every situation Equivalent to using a 4.5-stop 10 faster shutter speed, this system is effective at compensating for five types of camera shake. The camera integrates extraordinary image stabilization and sensitivity to light to let you use a greater range of shutter speed/ISO/aperture settings to express what you aim to capture in handheld stills or movies.
Compensation for five types of camera shake that can blur stills/movies shot handheld matches the camera's great sensitivity so you can use more shutter speed/ISO/aperture settings.
5-axis optical image stabilization - For shooting movies and equivalent to 4.5-stop-faster shutter speed for stills.
For a wide range of mountable lenses - Stabilization extends handheld shooting freedom with mountable lenses.

This fast, accurate AF system performs reliably in light as low as EV (Exposure Value) -4.
Fast Intelligent AF accelerates speed and precision - With advanced Fast Intelligent AF featuring enhanced accuracy even in the dark and accelerated AF for movie shooting, the α7S II helps to assure that you capture clear stills and movies.
With each of nine central AF points divided into 16 segments and noiseless clear images from the sensor, Fast Intelligent AF detects contrast accurately in light as low as EV -4.Ready for action under all conditions, even using large lenses, the α7S II integrates advanced functions that are worthy of extraordinary imaging performance in the long run.
You can clearly magnify the image to simplify manual fine-tuning of the focus whether shooting still images or movies. The Peaking function can also be activated to colorize the most sharply focused areas of your image for quick confirmation.
