Beyond high definition
For a full-frame DSLR, the Sony a99 II is remarkably compact, particularly when you take into account its impressive feature set. With heightened light sensitivity and blazing-fast data output, its 42-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor is extra efficient. There's no optical low-pass filter, so you can take full advantage of every one of the a99 II's 42 million pixels of resolution for incredibly clear, detailed images. A super-speedy processing engine gives this no-nonsense camera near-instant autofocus capabilities and adds to its outstanding low-light performance.
The Sony a99 II's redesigned image stabilization system allows for a more compact body. (Lens not included.)
The a99 II's highly responsive Fast Hybrid autofocus system delivers clear action shots with spot-on subject tracking that keeps moving targets sharply focused throughout the frame.
Advanced features for videographers
The a99 II records video in Full HD and 4K. In Super 35mm format, data is processed from every pixel for sharp, finely detailed footage. A multi interface shoe lets you connect professional microphone kits for balanced audio to match the video quality. Picture Profile and S-Log 2 and S-Log 3 Gamma settings let you adjust color, gradation, and dynamic range for richly detailed movies, even in low light. A clean HDMI output sends uncompressed movie data to an external recorder or monitor. You can keep recording internally to the camera even when using this function.
A steady shooter
At such high levels of definition and detail, even small amounts of camera shake can be visible in your videos or cause blurring in still images. That's why Sony equipped the a99 II with five-axis image stabilization, which delivers tack-sharp photos and shake-free videos. Optimized for high-resolution sensors, this powerful image stabilization system compensates for camera shake from five different directions, giving you freedom to shoot handheld, zoom in on distant subjects, and capture sharp images in low light. You can monitor the effects of camera shake compensation in the electronic viewfinder or LCD screen while shooting and adjust framing and focusing if needed for steady results.
Your phone adds functionality
Built-in Wi-Fi means you can instantly transfer photos and videos from the a99 II directly to your phone or tablet for easy uploading and sharing. NFC touch pairing is also available for compatible Android™ devices. Sony's PlayMemories Camera Apps include free and paid apps that complement your photographic style and interests. There's the indispensable free Smart Remote Control app that lets you use your mobile device to control shooting on the a99 II, along with specialized apps for things like light painting, time-lapse, stop motion, and multiple exposure, plus plenty of editing effects to fine-tune your photos and add your own personal touches.
