42.4MP Full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor

The35mm full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor produces high resolution 42.4-megapixel images and stunning 4K video. The back-illuminated structure allows for fast readout of large volume of data while the copper wiring layer (instead of aluminum) allows for faster transmission speed. No low-pass filter results in maximum resolution from the sensor and combined with the gapless on-chip lens design and AR (anti-reflective) coating on the surface of the sensor’s glass seal – dramatically improving light collection efficiency – even though the pixels are smaller than lower resolution full-frame sensors. 16-bit processing with both compressed or uncompressed 14-bit RAW files are readily available based on user preferences. The results are truly remarkable – with incredibly detailed stills and video, high dynamic range, high sensitivity and low noise across an ISO range of 100-25600, expandable to ISO 50 – 102,400.

World’s first 79 hybrid AF cross-point array3 for unmatched AF tracking

The α99 II features the world’s first 79 hybrid AF cross-point array3 for unmatched AF tracking. Incorporating both a dedicated high speed, high-density phase detection AF sensor with 79 AF-points (15 cross points) with both vertical and horizontal detection and a 399-point focal plane AF sensor with vertical detection over a wide area of the frame. The 79 superimposed points operate as fully selectable hybrid cross points which allows for fast and precise focusing with just about any type of subject.

Up to 12fps1 at 42.4MP with AE/AF tracking2

The α99 II has been designed to allow for high resolution, continuous shooting at high frame rates. The camera features a new front-end LSI that works with the image sensor, BIONZ X image processing engine and a newly designed shutter unit to enable continuous shooting at impressive speeds up to 12fps1 with continuous AF/AE tracking2 at full 42.4MP resolution. Thanks to a large buffer, these shots can be viewed immediately after shooting, even when in high-speed continuous shooting mode.


Super 35mm or full-frame 4K video4

Choose Super 35mm or full-frame 4K4 to best suit the video capture your artistic vision requires. Full pixel readout with no pixel binning10 in Super 35mm format generates approximately 1.8 times the data required for 3840 x 2160 4K movies. That data is then oversampled to produce beautiful 4K imagery with spectacular resolution and minimal moiré effect. The α99 II is also capable of recording 4K across the full width of the full frame sensor, with the exceptional control of plane of focus that only full-frame format provides.

5-axis in-body image stabilization optimized for 42.4MP full-frame

The 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system is fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors. It accurately compensates for blur caused by camera shake – for up to 4.5 stops13 – from five different directions: vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw and roll. This means that any lens attached to the α99 II will benefit from images stabilization, regardless of whether the lens has its own image stabilization. Compensation across 5-axis of movement excels during video recording and even helps fight blur caused by the photographer walking or running. It’s a true marvel of engineering. You can even monitor the stabilizing effects of camera shake compensation in the viewfinder or LCD screen while shooting by pressing the shutter button halfway or magnifying the image, and while shooting movies by entering movie mode.

A host of pro video features for 4K4 and Full HD

The α99 II has the ability to record 4K video internally with full pixel readout and no pixel binning through usage of the professional and friendly XAVC S format4. The camera is capable of recording high quality footage at 100Mbps for 4K and up to 100Mbps at 120 fps for Full HD4. It also offers a new ‘Slow and Quick’ mode (S&Q) that supports both slow motion and quick motion from 1 fps to 120 fps in 8 steps. A host of other features for professional movie production workflow are also included, such as zebra for easier exposure adjustment, peaking for easy manual focusing, time code, clean 4:2:2 HDMI output as well as picture profiles, S-Log3/S-Log2, S-Gamut and gamma display assist for real time S-Log monitoring.


Notes and Legal


1 Continuous shooting mode set to ‘Hi+’

2 The supported focus area will depend on the shooting mode and lens used. Furthermore, when “Continuous Shooting: Hi+” is selected, focus will be fixed at the first frame shot when Hybrid Phase Detection AF is active at aperture settings of F9 or higher, or when Hybrid Phase Detection AF is not active at aperture settings of F4 or higher.

3 The number of usable AF points may depend on the lens and shooting mode. Up to 323 focus points are selectable. Not available for movie recording.

4 ISO range of 100-25600, expandable to ISO 50 – 102,400. Expanded ISO. Still images only.

5 Class 10 or higher SDHC/SDXC memory card required for XAVC S format movie recording. UHS-I (U3) SDHC/SDXC card required for 100Mbps recording.

6 Sound cannot be recorded during S&Q. SDHC/SDXC memory card of Class 10 or higher is required. Full HD up to 50 Mbps; 60x quick motion/5x slow in NTSC and 50x quick motion/4x slow in PAL.

7 The number of usable AF points may depend on the lens and shooting mode.

8 Requires pairing with compatible Anroid or iOS mobile devices running the free PlayMemories Mobile app. For GPS pairing, Android 5.0 or later and compatible with Bluetooth 4.0 or later. iPhone/iPad: iPhone 4S or later/iPad 3rd generation or later is required.

9 Not guaranteed to be 100% dust and moisture proof.

10 Full pixel readout in both full-frame and super 35mm. No pixel binning in Super 35mm recording.
