Set up your set


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 35 mm size frame, due to full pixel readout without pixel binning. α99 II records 4K movies in the Super 35 mm format. Oversampling collects approx. 1.8 times as much information as needed for 4K movie output, giving images realistic depth and dimension. Newly featured S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma provide wide dynamic range shooting (1300%) without blown highlights or black crush. S-Log3 gamma provides approximately 14 stops of latitude. XAVC S format allows 4K recording at maximum bitrate of 100Mbps as well as Full HD recording at 50Mbps, so α99 II can take movies of finely detailed movement with suppressed compression noise.

Translucent Mirror Technology enables the Hybrid Phase Detection AF System consisting of two AF sensors. The dedicated 79-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.

79-point Hybrid Cross AF effectively captures your subject. While 79 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 79 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.
