Sony Alpha 7R II Review
If you are interested in purchasing a mirrorless camera that does its job in a wide range of situations, then the Sony Alpha 7R II is a solid choice to make. Of course, the price tag is not the lowest, but you are paying for serious quality, and you can be sure you will not have to prepare for a replacement anytime soon. There are some similarities between this installment and its predecessor, but if you had the chance to work with the first 7R, you will easily notice the differences which make the current model a superior one. You will feel it is a bit heavier, as the whole body is now made out of durable magnesium alloy. The grip also feels different, as it is a complete redesign compared to the first model, but the controls have mostly remained similarly placed.
Unlike competitors, the Sony Alpha 7R II provides in-body image stabilization, so you can rely on more basic lens that do not feature built-in image stabilization. However, this is just one of the many features which make the 7R II a worthwhile purchase. The sensor is a CMOS one and it is a full frame design, measuring 35.9 by 24mm. 24 megapixels is the effective size of the sensor, which gives a maximum resolution of 6000 x 4000 pixels to play with as you work on shooting the best photos.
The ISO range of the Sony Alpha 7R II is quite wide, so you can work well with the camera in various environments, even extremely or poorly lit. The minimum ISO value is 100, whereas the maximum one is 25,600; you can extend the ISO range up to 51,200. You can use one of the 10 preset white balance modes, but if you are looking to shoot in more controlled conditions, you can create your own preset.
Burst shooting is available when you work with the Sony Alpha 7R II, and you can take some pretty good shots to choose the perfect one from. If you need to follow a fast-moving subject, you can be sure the camera will help you at all times, so all images will look crisp. Aside from that, you should know you can burst shoot at a constant rate of 5 frames per second, so you will not lose any details in between two shots.
The Sony Alpha 7R II can not only take still photos; you can put it to good work in order to shoot video, as well. You can shoot Full HD video at up to 60 frames per second, and the MP4 format allows shooting 1440 x 1080 video. If you are not impressed by the audio recording features of the camera, you can also add an external microphone. If you are looking to quickly share your shots on social media, you can do so thanks to NFC and Wi-Fi features. The camera also comes with features like BRAVIA Sync, so you can do more if you have a compatible Sony device at home.
