Sony A7II Additional Video Coverage and More Reviews
Allin Popescu has posted a very detailed A7II test with many samples and videos.
On short, this is a new camera, as I mentioned from the beginning. What’s more surprising is the fact that Sony kept the same price point for the new a7II, as it launched one year ago the a7 model. So we get for free the IBIS, better handling, magnesium alloy body, improved focusing and tracking, better ISO performance.
Dennis Biela posted the Sony A7II shutter test video below with the following comment:
Sony loaned me a production a7II camera for a upcoming photo shoot and in testing out the camera I found that it has a huge image buffer. If you shoot in jpg fine and use a fast SD card like Sony’s new high speed SDXC memory cards you will not fill the buffer to the limit and can shoot continuously at 5 frames per sec. all day. In the video I only stopped shooting so not to bore people. As to raw files they are different you can shoot up to 25ish images still a respectable amount. Another interesting fact is the camera does not have a high speed mode like the a77II meaning that you can shoot at 5 fps at what ever f-stop you want unlike some cameras where shooting at high speed means you shoot at the maximum lens opening. 5 fps is not extremely fast like 12 or 8 but with the fact that you can keep shooting for a long duration of images and the camera can track focus at this speed I feel its a big leap for the a7 class of mirrorless cameras.
Paul Gero posted a hands-on review for the new Sony Alpha A7II camera. See his conclusion and the video below.
I have been testing this camera and as you can see from the photographs below being able to shoot handheld at 1/4 of a second with a 200mm focal length is pretty impressive.
Sony A7 II brings major improvements over the original Sony A7 including a new front dial, a bigger right-hand grip, a repositioned shutter release and a reinforced lens mount. In addition, the Sony A7 II boasts faster auto focus and better subject tracking capabilities, and benefits from XAVC S and S-Log2 support. See the Sony A7II vs A7 Comparison.
