Sony a7C II Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera (Black)


Sony a7C II Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera (Black)

The alpha7C compact mirrorless range now has a 2nd generation compact camera with a new 33 megapixel full-frame CMOS back-illuminated sensor, in-camera 10bit 4K capture, and impressive AI-assisted tools to get your videos to the next level.  

33 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS image sensor

Delivering outstanding performance and excellent image quality for both stills and movies, the a7C II's new 33.0 megapixel Exmor R CMOS image sensor provides high-speed readout, high sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 51,200, low noise, and highly accurate colour reproduction.

Advanced BIONZ XR engine 

The advanced BIONZ XR processing engine delivers up to 8x times more processing power than its predecessor. It minimises processing latency while boosting movie and still image processing power, achieving natural gradations, realistic colour, low noise, superior image quality and fast menu response.

Incredible 10bit 4:2:2 4K/30p Full-Frame video and 4K/60p in Super35 mode

The new Sony a7C II offers 4K 60p/50p movie capture with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, taking advantage of the latest BIONZ XR processing engine and its wide dynamic range to produce exceptionally smooth images of fast-moving subjects. When recording 4K video at 30p, full-frame 7K oversampling delivers 4K with enhanced clarity and detail.  In-camera 10-bit 4:2:2 recording is available when using Long GOP or All-Intra compression, making it possible to colour grade for fuller, more natural gradations while generally providing greater editing freedom.

S-Cinetone and S-Log3, and LUTs for more creative options in post-production

Utilising the same colour science from Sony's highly regarded Cinema Line, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin tones, plus soft colours and gorgeous highlights.

The alpha 7C II also features an S-Log3 gamma curve that emphasises gradation characteristics from shadows to mid-grey (18% grey), achieving 14+ stops of latitude10. S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine colour gamut settings are also provided. You can apply a custom LUT (Look Up Table) with a Log gamma curve to preview how the footage will look in post-production, or to even record footage conveniently with a PP LUT already applied.

Advanced optical 5-axis image stabilisation

Enjoy even more stable handheld shooting for stills, thanks to the a7C II’s high-precision image stabilisation unit, advanced gyro sensors, and optimised image stabilisation algorithms that effectively correct 7.0-steps of camera shake. Compatible lenses with built-in image stabilisation combine with improved synchronisation between the body and lens to make framing easier even at telephoto focal lengths that can otherwise cause a large amount of blur.

Active Mode provides enhanced image stabilisation for handheld shooting. A precision image stabilisation unit, advanced gyro sensors, and an optimised image stabilisation algorithm work together for exceedingly smooth, stable movie footage. In addition to this in-body stabilisation, compatible lenses with their own built-in image stabilisation coordinate with the camera body for highly effective control, enabling handheld telephoto shots with greater clarity.

AI-assisted Advanced Subject Recognition and AI framing for video

The a7C II is equipped with an AI processing unit specifically dedicated to processing significant amounts of data, enabling more accurate recognition of subjects and recognition of a wider range of subject types.

Using AI-based subject recognition technology, the Auto Framing feature automatically crops for optimum framing when shooting movies. Even when the camera is mounted on a tripod, the framing is continually adjusted so that the recorded footage looks like the subject was being followed by a camera operator. Accurate tracking is possible even when the camera is being operated remotely via the Creators' App on a smartphone.

Advanced Auto-Focus and Real-time Tracking

The a7C II also features a significantly improved AI-based subject recognition, offering higher tracking reliability in a wider range of shooting situations. Specify a subject and half-press the shutter button to get the camera to start tracking, leaving you free to concentrate on framing and composition.

The new a7C II uses up to 759 phase detection points in a high-density array that cover approximately 94% of the image area when shooting stills, enabling it to recognise the subject even when they only occupy a small area of the frame.

Dust and moisture-resistant design

Furthermore, the alpha7C II is well sealed at critical buttons and dials, and interlocking body seams add double protection, providing excellent resistance to dust and moisture in challenging outdoor conditions.

Stable Smartphone Connectivity

Connection stability when transferring images from the camera to the Creators' App mobile application on a smartphone has been greatly improved. Transfers continue in the background even if the smartphone display sleeps or a different app is launched. Workflow from shooting to sharing has been notably improved overall.
