As the world’s first4 35 mm full-frame image sensor with back-illuminated structure, this 42.4-megapixel CMOS sensor enhances light collection efficiency, expands circuitry scale, and, with the help of a quick-transmission copper wiring layer, outputs data about 3.5 times faster7, while minimizing image noise to reveal fine details in every picture.
Now, even more comprehensive quality enters the picture. With the world’s first back-illuminated 35mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with 42.4 megapixels, the Sony α7R II takes image resolution, sensitivity (up to ISO 102400) and speedy response to new heights. The Fast Hybrid AF system's dense extra-wide focal plane phase-detection AF coverage keeps a subject in sharp focus throughout the entire frame, while 5-axis image stabilization reduces blur which otherwise tends to affect handheld shots. High resolution is further enhanced by a 4K movie recording featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning. With so much insight packed into such a compact form, it's clear that there is more to life than meets the naked eye.
