Advantages of Hybrid Phase Detection AF System

Sony’s translucent mirror realises proprietary AF system

Translucent Mirror Technology enables the Hybrid Phase Detection AF System consisting of two AF sensors. The dedicated 79-point4 AF sensor provides high-precision focusing and depth detection, while the 399-point5 focal-plane AF sensor on the image sensor supplies wider coverage. During continuous shooting at up to 12fps3, AF tracking captures motion once nearly invisible to human eyes.


79 Hybrid Cross AF points6 for quick precise focus

79-point Hybrid Cross AF6 effectively captures your subject. While 79 AF points4 of the dedicated phase-detection AF sensor are for horizontal detection, 399 AF points5 of focal-plane phase-detection AF sensor handle vertical detection. Moreover, the focal-plane phase-detection AF sensor coverage area includes the dedicated phase-detection AF sensor area so 79 superimposed points function as selectable Hybrid Cross AF points.6 Cross measurement reduces influence from the subject pattern, so you have fast, precise focusing for just about any type of subject. Moreover, the very central AF point also functions as an F2.8-sensitive sensor that supports lenses as bright as a minimum F-value of 2.8 or lower.

Advanced performance of autofocusing features

Enhance your shooting performance with three exemplary AF features — low-light AF capability, enhanced subject-tracking AF, and Eye AF.

Enhanced subject-tracking performance

Enhanced subject-tracking performance

Consistent high-precision tracking is achieved by taking advantage of vast AF data.

AF supports scenes as dark as EV-4

Light-sensitive AF lets you shoot to EV-4 (central focus point).

Eye AF for more precise focusing

Eye AF for more precise focusing

Keep the subject’s eye in focus, even if the face is turned at an angle.


Fast continuous shooting3 with AF/AE tracking2

The camera provides improved processing speed and shutter mechanism to attain unprecedented continuous shooting speed of up to 12fps3 (up to 8fps8 in live-view shooting) with AF/AE tracking.2

42.4-megapixel9 full frame

Stunning high resolution

α99 II features a 35mm full-frame 42.4-megapixel9 back-illuminated CMOS sensor that delivers high-resolution image while providing high sensitivity, minimised noise, and wide dynamic range. Its wide standard ISO range 100-25600 is expandable to even wider ISO 50-10240010.

5-axis image stabilisation

Optical 5-axis image stabilisation 

As effective as using 4.5-step faster12 shutter speed

Shooting should be as steady as possible to minimise the negative effect of camera shake blur. So, α99 II high resolution is optimised with body-integrated 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilisation, fine-tuned to match its 42.4-megapixel9 performance. You can zoom in on faraway subjects, shoot close-ups, and take night scenes with nearly shake-free clarity in stills and movies.

First A-mount 4K movies


4K high-resolution movies for A-mount users

Show your imagination in α99 II 4K movie recording13, as the back-illuminated full-frame image sensor transforms your vision into reality. You’ll achieve expanded expressive power in 4K resolution when shooting in the full-frame 4K format of the sensor. And, you can capture stunning high resolution when shooting in Super 35mm size frame, due to full pixel readout without pixel binning.

  •  Super 35mm
  • S-Gamut & S-Log
  • XAVC S format

Accent movies with new quick and slow motion15

Use “S&Q” mode to pick 1fps to 120fps (100fps) in eight steps, up to 60x (50x) quick motion and 5x (4x) slow motion16, and record at full HD (50Mbps). Quick motion is like a time-lapse movie or deframing.


Clever capabilities


Ample features for greater ease and reliability

You’ll appreciate new α99 II ergonomics. The redesigned body is 8% smaller than the α99, thanks to re-examination of internal layout and reduced size of the 5-axis image stabilisation system. Meticulous attention has been paid to the smallest details, so the new camera provides excellent operability and reliable body rigidity in addition to downsized body dimensions.
