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 -point AF sensor provides high-precision focusing and depth detection, while the 399-point focal-plane AF sensor on the image sensor supplies wider coverage. During continuous shooting at up to 12fps, AF tracking captures motion once nearly invisible to human eyes.

about Hybrid Phase Detection AF System

Hybrid Cross AF points for quick precise focus

-point Hybrid Cross AF effectively captures your subject. While AF points of the dedicated phase-detection AF sensor are for horizontal detection, 399 AF points 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 superimposed points function as selectable Hybrid Cross AF points. 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.

42.4-megapixel full frame

Stunning high resolution

α99 II features a 35mm full-frame 42.4-megapixel 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 50-102400.

No.1 image sensor manufacturer for digital cameras and video recorders.

Advantages of back-illuminated image sensor design

Light collection efficiency is enhanced by a back-illuminated image sensor with AR coating and gapless on-chip lens design that realises uniform light penetration regardless of lens centre or peripheral areas.

5-axis image stabilisation

Optical 5-axis image stabilisation

As effective as using 4.5-step faster 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-megapixel 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 recording, 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.

Stunning high resolution with Super 35mm

α99 II records 4K movies in the Super 35mm format. Oversampling collects approx. 1.8 times as much information as needed for 4K movie output, giving images realistic depth and dimension.

Accent movies with new quick and slow motion

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