Sony Alpha a7C II Camera (Body Only) - Black - 33MP Mirrorless Digital
Big vision wherever you go
Full-frame CMOS image sensor with 33.01 effective megapixels
Delivering outstanding performance and excellent image quality for both stills and movies, the a7C II's new 33.0 megapixel1 Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor provides high-speed readout, high sensitivity from ISO 100 to ISO 512002, low noise, and highly accurate color reproduction
Advanced BIONZ XR™ engine
The advanced BIONZ XR processing engine delivers up to eight times3 more processing power than its predecessor. It minimizes processing latency while boosting movie and still image processing power, achieving natural gradations, realistic color, low noise, superior image quality and fast menu response.
Consistently accurate exposure and color
Employing the latest processing engine combined with an advanced AE algorithm, the a7C II can detect the skin area of faces and adjust exposure accordingly for both stills and movies. It achieves consistent exposure control even in challenging shooting conditions when the subject is backlit, in shadows or direct sunlight, or not directly facing the camera.
Realize your vision with Creative Look
Set the visual mood with Creative Look, which offers 10 customizable presets so you can capture the world the way you want. Either use the presets as they are or adjust eight parameters, including contrast, saturation, and shadows4, to create shareable stills and movies in-camera without the need for post-production editing.
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 (S/M/L) to suit any application, and a Light image quality selection that generates less data is provided for JPEG and HEIF images.
Advanced optical 5-axis image stabilization
Enjoy even more stable handheld shooting for stills, thanks to the a7C II's high-precision image stabilization unit, advanced gyro sensors, and optimized image stabilization algorithms that effectively compensate for up to 7.0-steps5 of camera shake. Compatible lenses with built-in image stabilization6 combine with improved synchronization between the body and lens to make framing easier even at telephoto focal lengths that can otherwise cause a large amount of blur.
More than 70 E-mount lenses offer boundless creativity
The a7C II is compatible with Sony's extensive lineup of optically advanced E-mount lenses, including the G Master™ series that blends breathtaking resolution with exquisite bokeh, and the G Lens™ series with excellent image quality and smooth bokeh. Compact and lightweight, these lenses offer a wide range of photographic and videographic applications.
High performance movie making
The technology to bring your creative vision to life
Enjoy high-quality movie recording capabilities no matter when or where you're shooting. The a7C II offers 4K 60p/50p movie capture7,8, S-Cinetone™ for a cinematic look straight out of the camera, and Log shooting for flexible post processing, all within a remarkably compact, lightweight body that's compatible with gimbal or drone-mounted shooting.
Outstanding 4K movie recording up to 60p/50p
The a7C II offers 4K 60p/50p movie capture7,8 with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, taking advantage of the latest BIONZ XR processing engine and its wide dynamic range to produce exceptionally smooth images of fast-moving subjects. When recording 4K movies at 30p, full-frame 7K oversampling delivers 4K with enhanced clarity and detail.
S-Cinetone™ to easily create a cinematic look
Utilizing the same color science from Sony's highly regarded Cinema Line, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin tones, plus soft colors and gorgeous highlights.
Advanced movie recording for simpler post-production
In-camera 10-bit 4:2:2 recording is available when using Long GOP or All-Intra compression9, making it possible to color grade for fuller, more natural gradations while generally providing greater editing freedom.
Log recording for powerful creative possibilities
The a7C II boasts an S-Log3 gamma curve that emphasizes gradation characteristics from shadows to mid-grey (18% grey), achieving 14+ stops of latitude10. S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut3.Cine color gamut settings are also provided. You can apply a custom LUT (Look Up Table) with a Log gamma curve to preview how the footage will look in post-production, or to even record footage conveniently with a PP LUT already applied.
Active Mode image stabilization supports handheld movie shooting
Active Mode provides enhanced image stabilization for handheld shooting. A precision image stabilization unit, advanced gyro sensors, and an optimized image stabilization algorithm work together for exceedingly smooth, stable movie footage. In addition to this in-body stabilization, compatible lenses with their own built-in image stabilization12 coordinate with the camera body for highly effective control, enabling handheld telephoto shots with greater clarity.
Stay focused with Real-time Tracking
Select a subject and let Real-time Tracking do the work for you - the camera automatically detects and tracks the subject, keeping the focus with a high level of accuracy.
Breathing compensation for consistent angle of view
With the breathing compensation function turned on, the a7C II employs Sony's original Clear Image Zoom technology to suppress focus breathing, allowing you to shoot movies with more stable images. Breathing metadata can also be used with the advanced breathing compensation capabilities of the latest Catalyst Browse/Prepare Plugin software during post-production.
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. Shot marks can be easily added to clips during or after recording to mark favorite scenes, allowing you to quickly locate them during playback in the camera or editing with compatible software.
Smarter, faster AF
AI processing unit for advanced subject recognition
The a7C II is equipped with an AI processing unit specifically dedicated to processing significant amounts of data, enabling more accurate recognition of subjects and recognition of a wider range of subject types.
Human pose estimation for accurate subject recognition
With its innovative AI processing unit, the a7C II can accurately recognize human movement, achieving significant improvement in human eye recognition. Its human pose estimation technology uses a skeleton-based model, enabling it to recognize not just eyes, but also body and head positions with high precision, so it can even 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
The a7C II features a powerful AI processing unit, capable of human, animal, bird, insect, car/train and airplane14 recognition. Animal recognition now recognizes 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 recognize 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 recognizing birds' heads and bodies.
Tenacious Real-time Tracking
The a7C II boasts greatly improved AI-based subject recognition, offering higher tracking reliability in a wider range of shooting situations. Specify a subject and half-press the shutter button to get the camera to start tracking, leaving you free to concentrate on framing and composition.
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' App17 on a smartphone.
