Are you looking for a portable full-frame camera with semi-pro capabilities? Then take a look at this Sony interchangeable-lens camera, which is the company’s second-generation model. With the release of the Sony A7 III, the third version of the camera, there are some excellent bargains to be had on the Sony A7 II.
The Sony A7 II, also known as the ILCE-7M2 or Alpha 7 Mark II, is a high-resolution camera with a maximum pixel count of 24.3MP that uses the same sensor as the original A7. However, the optical five-axis picture stabilization of the A7 II above the A7 gives 4.5 more stops of shutter speed, which is a significant benefit. The camera is compatible with the same E-mount Sony lenses as are used by the other A7-series cameras.
The camera’s standout features include an ISO sensitivity range of 50-25,600, a conveniently tilting 3in LCD, built-in Wi-Fi, and NFC connection, and a maximum continuous shooting speed of 5 frames per second.
