Say goodbye to fuzzy photos with the α7 II - the world's first* full-frame camera with 5-axis stabilisation. The movement of the full-frame image sensor allows the α7 II to detect and compensate for five types of camera shake, including roll, pitch and yaw, as well as horizontal and vertical shake, eliminating any blurry photos that may occur when shooting in sub-optimal conditions. Plus, the live view functionality allows you to see the corrected images on the screen, so you can fine tune each shot even when using a telephoto or macro lens with this interchangeable lens camera. Now, you can be sure of pin-sharp photos, even sans tripod.

Speedy Subject Tracking For Precision Photo-taking
The α7 II's newly-enhanced Fast Hybrid AF System is both 30% faster and 1.5 times more accurate than its predecessor, delivering speedy, reliable tracking that you can always depend on. It makes use of the wide-area 117-point focal plane phase detection AF sensor, 25 high-precision contrast-detection AF, and advanced algorithms to accurately detect and focus on subject positions - even while they are in motion. No more unintentionally out-of-focus captures.
Capture Stunning High-Resolution Images With Superb Sensitivity
The 24.3-megapixel* 35mm full-frame Exmor™ CMOS sensor delivers extraordinary image quality. Be prepared for superb sensitivity, a wide dynamic range, and minimal noise throughout the ISO spectrum, made possible thanks to the high resolution and larger pixel sizes. The full-frame sensor also allows for impressively-rendered photos and beautiful bokeh effects.
