Sony Electronics unveiled at the Photokina show in Cologne, Germany Monday its new flagship A-mount full-frame camera, model α99 II, carrying a new Hybrid Phase Detection AF system and Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology.
Sony called the α99 II full-frame interchangeable lens camera (ILC), which ships in November at a $3,200 suggested retail for the body only, “a supremely specified, professional level camera that will be appealing to a variety of professional and enthusiast photographers.”
For video, the α99 II will record 4K video internally with full pixel readout and no pixel binning using Sony’s XAVC S format. The camera will capture 4K scenes at up to 100Mbps. A new Slow and Quick mode supports both slow motion and quick motion. In this mode, frame rates from 1 fps to 120 fps can be selected in 8 steps for up to 60x quick motion and 5x slow motion recording.
The camera also has a host of pro-level video recording features including: picture profiles, time code and clean HDMI output, gamma assist for real time S-Log monitoring and a zebra mode for easier exposure adjustment. S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma are also included.
