Sony A7 II video review bu Tony North-up

Review at F Stoppers

What I Liked

  • In-body five-axis image stabilization works incredibly well for photos.
  • The ergonomics are great. It fits well in your hand thanks to the beefy grip and is an all-around positive experience carrying it.
  • The new forward-angled DSLR-like shutter button feels excellent to use.
  • There are plentiful customizable buttons on the body.
  • The all metal lens mount keeps the lenses feeling stiff and non-wobbly when mounted, a problem that some of the original Sony a7 and Sony a7R bodies have.
  • Favorable price compared to the other cameras in the Sony a7 line.

Imagine resource also reviews the Sony A7II camera, take a look at the key points below…

  • Superb JPEG image quality at low to moderate ISOs
  • Excellent sharpness with few sharpening artifacts
  • Very good dynamic range
  • Very good high ISO performance, particularly in RAW files
  • Excellent 5-axis image stabilization
  • IS capabilities with nearly any lens, native or otherwise
  • IS is great for stationary, handheld video
  • Improved handgrip and ergonomics
  • Improved start-up speed
  • Stronger, all-metal lens mount and flange from A7S
  • AF, particularly continuous AF, felt fast and was usable for fast-paced subjects in real-world testing
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC
  • 50Mbps XAVC S format video
  • 1080/60p or 24p clean HDMI output (4:2:2 8-bit)
  • Simultaneous HDMI out + internal recording to memory card
  • Very good print quality results

The Sony A7II also received sliver award from dpreview

The Sony a7 II, as stand-alone product, is very impressive. It offers a good 24MP sensor, in a smaller-than-a-DSLR package, with robust image stabilization, an articulating screen, a very high-res EVF/ LCD, plus a host of incredibly useful video features. Custom buttons and dials are also plentiful, AF accuracy is good, and it can even subject track with a reasonable degree of success.

Images captured via Sony A7 II camera

Nicolamaiani  – Yes, I did. Via ALL kit Nikon and Sony go with a new outfit . It was not an easy choice, or because I always took with Nikon, or because the Mirrorless Fullframe have little more than a year on the shoulders, but since the machines would arrive due to change anyway because at the end of life, I said, “why not change the system? New season, new system “. So here is that I have taken 2 Sony A7 II , the 55mm f1.8 Zeiss FE and the brand new 28mm f2.0 Sony FE (which I received on the day before the wedding). Here I added 2 flash Yongnuo YN-560 MKIII and their commander, the Yongnuo YN-560tx . And with that I went for my first marriage weblog Sony.

Sony A7II Can Capture 48 Megapixel Image [Rumor]

A7II-camera-image
If we believe the current rumors floating over the web, Sony engineers working on high resolution mode that will enable users to create 48Megapixel (super high resolution) image files from the current Sony A7II camera, the A7II will capture multiple shot of same subject by moving the sensor bit by bit (thanks to presence of 5-axis IS system) and will generate a single composite image of 48 MP, same working principle as of Olympus E-M5 II camera.

High ISO Test - Nikon D750 vs Sony A7 II vs Sony A7s

Take a look at the High ISO test between the Nikon D750 vs Sony A7 II vs Sony A7s, the High ISO test is published by French website focus-numerique…,

Nikon-D750-vs-Sony-A7-II-imBefore we start we must clear the basic that the Nikon D750 features 24.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor,  Sony A7 II has a 24.3MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor and the Sony A7s built with a 12.2MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor.

Out of all these three sensors the Sony A7 II only features hybrid CMOS Fullframe AF sensor with active phase AF points (and also the A7 II is world first fullframe mirrorless camera to feature 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization with 4.5 stops of compensation ), so if you are inclined towards sports photography you should go with Sony A7 II since both the A7 II and Nikon D750 have almost same image quality.

Sony A7s does showing better noise control compared to the other two camera, so if you want a lowlight monster you should buy the Sony A7s camera.

Sony-A7-II-vs-Canon-5D-II-i

Sensor

The recently announced Sony uses a Hybrid AF CMOS sensor that fabricated with 117 Phase AF points inside it, the camera also features additional 25 contrast based AF points, on the other hand the Canon 5D Mark II uses a additional AF sensor with 61-point autofocus points and 41 cross-type AF points (with f/4 lens support) and 5 dual diagonal AF points (with f/2.8 sensitivity).

AF System

The 5D Mark III phase AF system is active only when you are using viewfinder, when you are recording videos or using live view display unit the contrast AF system gets activated and phase AF system gets deactivated.

Sony A7 II HYBRID AF system is always active weather you are using a viewfinder, display unit for shooting your fav composition or when you are recording videos.

We recommend you to get Sony A7II is you are a sports shooter.

Best Camera for low-light or available light

The Low light sensitivity of Sony A7 II is limited to -1EV and Canon 5D Mark III supports lowlight sensitivity upto -2EV, the other major advantage of Canon 5D Mark III is High ISO range compared to (25600 vs 102400), so best camera for available / low-light is Canon 5D Mark III.

Image Stabilization

The 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization, This compensates for five types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of still images and video, No sensor shift IS available in 5D Mark III.

Video

Both the camera records Full HD videos, but the Canon 5D Mark III Full HD is limited to 30fps and Sony A7 II can record Full HD videos at 60 fps.

Other

The Canon 5D Mark III offers more battery life but the Sony A7 II is light-weight and easy to carry, the Sony A7 II features wireless connectivity

Verdict:

The Sony A7 II offers advance AF system and built in image stabilization compared to the 5D Mark III, so we recommend you to go with Sony A7 II based on specification comparison review.

Sony A7 II vs Nikon D750

Sony-A-7-II-vs-D750-imageTake a look at the core specification comparison of the Sony A7 II and the Nikon D750 camera, In the first look we see the Sony A7 is more compact and easy to carry machine compared to the big and bulky Nikon D750 camera… take a look inside for more difference between…

Sony-A7-II-vs-D750-imageBefore we start we we must assure that both camera is n0t using the same sensor, since Nikon does have a habit of using Sony sensor but the internal architecture of both the sensor is completely different.

Sensor

The Sony A7 II sensor is built with active phase AF points inside, the A7 II sensor features Enhanced Fast Hybrid AF that includes 117 phase detect AF and 25 contrast detection points.

The Nikon D750 sensor is a traditional one and features no active phase AF pixels inside, the camera have a different AF module (Multi-CAM 3500FX II) having 51 AF points and works only when you are using Viewfinder. The Contrast AF system is active while you are using display screen and recording videos.

Image Stabilization:

The Sony A7 II is world first fullframe mirrorless camera features Sony made 5 axis image stabilization system, if you are using long focal length lenses it will correct pitch and yaw adjustments, if you are using macro lenses it will correct horizontal and vertical shift compensation, the 5 axis will work in almost all types of lenses (including the third party lenses), also you can see the image stabilization system preview when you press the shutter button halfway.

Native ISO vs Expendable ISO

The Native ISO range of Nikon D750 is limited to 100-12800 and the expandable range of Nikon is 50-51200, Sony A7 II native ISO range is 100-25600 and expendable ISO range is 50-25600, so theoretically Sony should perform better.

Shutter

The continuous shooting speed of Sony A7 II is limited to 5 fps at full resolution, the Nikon D750 offers continuous shooting speed upto 8fps at full resolution.

OVF

I always orefer optical viewfinder over the EVF, it delivers realistic image to eye .. however its my choice.

Connectivity

The Sony A7 II offers built-in WiFi and NFC connectivity, it allows you to wireless transfer you files among remote devices and also allow you to use your smartphone to operate camera from distance aka remote shooting.

Verdict:

Based on specification comparison review we highly recommend you to buy Sony A7 II camera, however if you are Nikon system user then you may go with Nikon D750.
