New handheld freedom
Now you can fully express your vision with full-frame quality and cutting-edge camera shake compensation compatible with wide-ranging lenses.
5-axis image stabilization
The world’s first1 in a full-frame camera - Dramatically expand your range of expression by compensating for five types of camera shake while shooting still images and movies.
Say goodbye to five types of camera shake!
5-axis image stabilization lets you zoom, snap close-ups and capture night scenes with greater clarity. Compensation is equivalent to using a 4.5-step faster shutter speed.
- Pitch [ 1 ] and yaw [ 2 ] compensation: Compensate for commonly experienced pitch and yaw shake at long focal lengths.
- Horizontal [ 3 ] and vertical [ 4 ] shift compensation: Compensate for X and Y-axis shift shake at high magnification (during macro photography, etc.).
- Roll [ 5 ] compensation: Compensate for roll shake on the Z axis during long exposures. Most in-lens systems cannot compensate for roll shake.
Automatic optimization for every α lens
Your α lenses will always perform their best. - The α7 II analyzes information from your E-mount and A-mount4 lenses to optimize depiction performance and 5-axis image stabilization for the particular lens you mount.
Compatibility with wide-ranging mountable lenses
Use your favorite lenses without camera shake - Enjoy unparalleled handheld shooting freedom with more of your favourite lenses. The short flange-back distance in the E-mount α7 II contributes to broad lens compatibility.
