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.
79-point AF sensor4 with 15 cross points
15 cross AF points in the dedicated phase-detection sensor check precise focus and depth.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
