Sony Of­fi­cially Launched the Al­pha 7S II in SEA Re­gion

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - NEWS -

Last month, Sony held the re­gional launch for the lat­est mem­ber in the Al­pha fam­ily: the Al­pha 7S II (A7S II). Held in Sin­ga­pore, the new mir­ror­less cam­era was launched by Takashi Ya­suda, Gen­eral Man­ager, Dig­i­tal Imag­ing Mar­ket­ing Divi­sion, South­east Asia.

Those fa­mil­iar with the Al­pha se­ries cam­eras will know that the pre­de­ces­sor of this cam­era was de­signed for use in low-light sit­u­a­tions. The A7S II is no dif­fer­ent. This time around, Sony has up­graded the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of this cam­era to pro­vide even bet­ter low-light per­for­mance.

For a start, the A7S II has a max­i­mum ISO of 409,600. In­side, it sports a 12.2MP full-frame sen­sor that also sup­ports 4K video record­ing in the XAVC S for­mat. Sim­i­lar to the A7 II and A7R II, the sen­sor is mounted on a 5-axis im­age sta­bi­liza­tion sys­tem that makes hand­held shoot­ing eas­ier. As the im­age sta­bi­liza­tion sys­tem is lo­cated in­side the cam­era body, it will work re­gard­less of what lens is mounted to it.

More im­por­tantly, the A7S II records both 4K and Full HD video with full pixel read­out and no pixel bin­ning. Put in lay­man’s terms, this cam­era uses the en­tire sen­sor when record­ing

The Sony Al­pha 7S II looks near iden­ti­cal to the Al­pha 7R II.
