Consistently accurate exposure and colour

Consistently accurate exposure and colour

The new high-powered BIONZ XR processing engine works with an advanced AE algorithm to detect the skin area of faces and adjust exposure accordingly for both stills and movies. This achieves consistent exposure control even in challenging shooting conditions when the subject is backlit, in shadow, over-illuminated in direct sunlight, or not directly facing the camera. It also produces more natural human skin tones and sky and foliage colours.

Realise your vision with Creative Look

Realise your vision with Creative Look

Set the visual mood with Creative Look, which offers 10 customisable presets so you can capture the world the way you want. The presets can be used as they are or eight parameters can be adjusted, including contrast, saturation, and shadows, allowing you to create instantaneously shareable stills and movies in-camera without the need for post-production editing. Customised Creative Look settings can be stored as Custom Look selections for later recall and use.

Selectable RAW image sizes and quality

Selectable RAW image sizes and quality

Lossless RAW image compression provides efficient compression for smaller file sizes with no loss in image quality, enabling the camera to shoot up to 27 frames in continuous bursts. There are three lossless-compression image sizes to suit any application, and a Light image quality selection that generates less data is provided for JPEG and HEIF images.

S-Cinetone for a cinematic look

S-Cinetone for a cinematic look

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.

Advanced 10-bit 4:2:2 video encoding

Advanced 10-bit 4:2:2 video encoding

In-camera 10-bit 4:2:2 recording is available when using Long GOP or All-Intra compression, making it easier to achieve smooth, natural gradations during editing and colour grading.

Log recording with LUT previews

Log recording with LUT previews

The a7C II boasts an S-Log3 gamma curve that emphasises gradation characteristics from shadows to mid-grey (18% grey), achieving 14+ stops of latitude. S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine colour gamut settings are also provided. You can also apply a custom LUT (Look Up Table) to the camera's monitor image while recording with a Log gamma curve, providing a preview of how the footage will look after processing.

Full pixel readout without binning for 4K movies

Full pixel readout without binning for 4K movies

Thanks to its full pixel readout capabilities, the lightweight a7C II can record 4K movies with outstanding resolution and quality, delivering natural gradations and beautiful colour reproduction. The Super 35mm mode allows 4K 60p/50p recording with smooth, natural-looking capture of fast-moving subjects.

Human pose estimation for more accurate subject recognition

Human pose estimation for more accurate subject recognition

With its innovative AI processing unit, the a7C II can accurately recognise human movement. Human pose estimation technology recognises not just eyes, but also body and head positions with high precision, enabling it to lock onto and track a subject facing away from the camera or with their face partially obscured.

Reliable recognition of a wider range of subjects

Reliable recognition of a wider range of subjects

The a7C II features a powerful AI processing unit, capable of human, animal, bird, insect, car/train and airplane recognition. Animal recognition now recognises the eyes of some grazing and small animals, in addition to the eyes and heads of dogs, cats and similarly featured animals. It can even recognise these animals when their eyes are obscured from view. The camera also comes with bird recognition, enabling it to pinpoint the eyes of a variety of bird types, as well as recognising birds' heads and bodies.

Tenacious Real-time Tracking

AI-based Auto Framing for movies

AI-based Auto Framing for movies

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.

Breathing compensation for consistent angle of view when focusing

Breathing compensation for consistent angle of view when focusing

With the breathing compensation function turned on, the a7C II employs Sony's original Clear Image Zoom technology to suppress focus breathing, enabling professional-quality rack and refocussing. Breathing metadata can also be used with the advanced breathing compensation capabilities of the latest Catalyst Browse/Prepare Plugin software during post-production.

Compatible lenses with built-in image stabilisation combine with improved synchronisation between the body and lens to provide even more stable framing. [1] Yaw [2] Roll [3] Pitch

Wide-area, high-density AF offers speed and precision

Wide-area, high-density AF offers speed and precision

The a7C II achieves notably improved AF performance through the immense processing speed and power of the BIONZ XR engine and updated algorithms. It 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 your subject even when they only occupy a small area of the frame.

Continuous still shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking

Continuous still shooting at up to 10 fps with AF/AE tracking

The a7C II's mechanical and electronic shutters allow continuous shooting at up to 10 fps, or up to 8 fps in live view mode, making it easier to capture the most photogenic moments and expressions, even with moving subjects.

Accurate AF in low EV -4.0 light

Accurate AF in low EV -4.0 light

Equipped with the latest AF algorithms, the a7C II achieves high AF precision down to light levels as low as EV -4.0 in AF-S mode (ISO 100 equivalent, F2.0 lens). It also includes a Focus Priority mode that provides more reliable AF in low light or when using smaller apertures.

Metadata facilitates editing workflow

Metadata facilitates editing workflow

Metadata embedded in recorded footage can be used by Sony's Catalyst Browse/Prepare/Prepare Plugin software, significantly speeding up post production, allowing for more accurate correction during editing, and providing a more efficient workflow. Shot marks can be easily added to clips during or after recording to mark favourite takes or scenes, allowing you to quickly locate them during playback in the camera or editing with compatible software.
