Sony Officially Launched the Alpha 7S II in SEA Region
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.
