Sony’s a7S II boasts important upgrades over its first generation version. Its 12MP full-frame CMOS sensor features an expanded ISO range of 50 to 409,600, making the a7S II an outstanding low-light shooter. It also now features internal 4K movie recording with full pixel readout. The camera includes Sony’s much-touted 5-axis optical image stabilization, which means the device adjusts for accidental movement during shooting. The autofocus system has been upgraded as well and offers 169-point contrast detection AF points for faster, more precise focusing.
