Sony unveils the Alpha 7S II

 It seemed just like yesterday when Sony officially launched the Sony Alpha 7R II, but that isn’t stopping it from launching yet another full frame compact camera. A couple of days ago, the Japanese giant officially announced the Alpha 7S II (α7S II).

Following Sony’s naming convention, the “S” model is one that specializes in low-light performance. As such, the new α7S II has a maximum ISO of 409,600! Apart from that, it’s capable of shooting 4K videos/movies in the XAVC S format. This is all thanks to a full frame, 12.2MP sensor.

Speaking of recording videos, the α7S II can record 120fps at 100Mbps, for a slow motion effect. Other notable features include a 5-axis image stabilization system and an autofocus module that has 169 AF points. Needless to say, the α7S II also comes with Wi-Fi and NFC for expanded functionalities.

The α7S II will be available in Europe in November, and is priced at €3,400 (about RM16,595)

Here are some sample videos taken with the α7S II:
