Sony Announces A7S II Mirrorless Camera For Low-light Shooting


A camera that doesn’t fear the dark

Sony has officially taken the wraps off of their newest mirrorless camera, the A7S II. The company is positioning the new camera as an ideal tool for photographers who find themselves shooting in challenging light conditions. It’s not hard to see why – the A7S II is capable of shooting in ISOs up to 409600 with minimal noise, according to Sony. To put that in perspective, Sony’s A7 Mark II is only capable of going up to 25,600 ISO.

The A7S II is also equipped with Sony’s 5-axis optical image stabilisation that’s in the A7 Mark II, along with 4K movie recording, and a wide range of professional movie functionality. Obviously the A7S II is aimed more at people who like shooting video over photos – it only has a 12.2-megapixel image sensor paired with Sony’s BIONZ X image processing engine – just like its predecessor, the A7S. Priced at 3400€ (which comes out at around Php 180K), the A7S II is definitely not for everyone, but if you’re looking for a solid camera to capture video, this may just be for you.
