Creative looks for your vision
Set the visual mood with Creative Look, which offers 10 customisable presets so you can capture the world the way you want. The presets can be used as they are or eight parameters can be adjusted, including contrast, saturation and shadows, allowing you to create instantaneously shareable stills and movies in-camera without the need for post-production editing.
Advanced optical 5-axis image stabilisation
Enjoy even more stable handheld shooting for stills, thanks to the α7C II's high-precision image stabilisation unit, advanced gyro sensors, and optimised image stabilisation algorithms that effectively correct 7.0-steps of camera shake. Compatible lenses with built-in image stabilisation combine with improved synchronisation between the body and lens to make framing easier even at telephoto focal lengths that can otherwise cause a large amount of blur.
Outstanding 4K movie recording at 60p/50p
The α7C II offers 4K 60p/50p movie capture with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, taking advantage of the latest BIONZ XR processing engine and its wide dynamic range to produce exceptionally smooth images of fast-moving subjects. When recording 4K movies at 30p, full-frame 7K oversampling delivers 4K with enhanced clarity and detail.
Unlock the cinematic look with S-Cinetone™
Utilising the same colour science from Sony's highly regarded Cinema Line, S-Cinetone delivers natural mid-tones that are essential to healthy-looking skin tones, plus soft colours and gorgeous highlights.
Advanced movie recording for simpler post-production
In-camera 10-bit 4:2:2 recording is available when using Long GOP or All-Intra compression9, making it possible to colour grade for fuller, more natural gradations while generally providing greater editing freedom.
Log recording for powerful creative possibilities
The α7C II boasts an S-Log3 gamma curve that emphasises gradation characteristics from shadows to mid-grey (18% grey), achieving 14+ stops of latitude. S-Gamut3 and S-Gamut. Cine colour gamut settings are also provided. You can apply a custom LUT (Look Up Table) with a Log gamma curve to preview how the footage will look in post-production, or to even record footage conveniently with a PP LUT pre-applied.
Powerful image stabilisation
Active Mode2 provides enhanced image stabilisation for handheld shooting and exceedingly smooth, stable movie footage. In addition to this in-body stabilisation, compatible lenses with their own built-in image stabilisation coordinate with the camera body for highly effective control, enabling handheld telephoto shots with greater clarity.
Breathing compensation for consistent angle of view3
The Alpha 7C II employs Sony's original Clear Image Zoom technology to suppress focus breathing, allowing you to shoot movies with more stable images. Breathing metadata can also be used with the advanced breathing compensation capabilities of the latest Catalyst Browse/Prepare Plugin software during post-production.
AI-powered human pose estimation for subject recognition
The innovative AI processing unit recognises a wider range of subject types. It can accurately recognise human movements, achieving significant improvements in human eye recognition. Its human pose estimation technology uses a skeleton-based model, enabling it to recognise not just eyes but also body and head positions with high precision.
Reliable recognition of a wider range of subjects
The Alpha 7C II has a robust AI unit, capable of human, animal, bird, insect, car, train, and airplane recognition. Animal recognition goes beyond dogs and cats, identifying the eyes of small grazers. Bird recognition spotlights bird types, recognizing their eyes, heads, and bodies. It's AI-powered precision at its best.
Tenacious real-time tracking4
The Alpha 7C II boasts greatly improved AI-based subject recognition, offering higher tracking reliability in a wider range of shooting situations. Specify a subject and half-press the shutter button to get the camera to start tracking, leaving you free to concentrate on framing and composition.
AI-based auto framing for movies5
Elevate your movie shooting with AI-powered subject recognition. The Auto Framing feature ensures perfect framing, whether the camera is tripod-mounted or remotely operated via the Creators' App. Experience seamless, professional-looking tracking that follows your subject like a pro camera operator.
Immersive clarity with high dot-density electronic viewfinder
Experience brilliance with a 2.36 million-dot XGA OLED viewfinder, offering high contrast and clarity. Even in bright sunlight, it delivers a vivid view. Choose the [High] frame rate (120fps) for a seamless, blur-free viewfinder image when capturing fast-moving subjects. Get ready for unmatched precision.
Intuitive touch-control menus
Simply swipe in from the left or right edge of the shooting display to reveal touch icons that allow quick changes to the shooting mode and more. You can now long-press menu items to register them to My Menu for quick access as needed, making the camera even more easily customisable.
Stable grip for handheld shooting
The Alpha 7C II is designed to give you a secure, stable, and comfortable hold. Or attach a newly developed removable grip extension (sold separately) for maximum comfort and minimum fatigue during long shooting sessions.
Smooth and simple operation
The Alpha 7C II features a new Still/Movie/S&Q dial, allowing fast, independent selection. It's conveniently located next to the mode dial, which can then be used to easily select the exposure mode and other key settings for each shooting mode.
Stable smartphone connectivity
Connection stability when transferring images from the camera to the Creators' App mobile application on a smartphone has been greatly improved. Transfers continue in the background even if the smartphone display sleeps or a different app is launched.
Stream top-quality content
Connected to a personal computer or smartphone via USB, the Alpha 7C II can function as a 4K (2160p) webcam. Large-aperture lenses, narrow depth of field, and bokeh can be used to create striking images, and advanced AF functions such as Eye AF support online meetings and live streaming events.
