Advantages of Hybrid Phase Detection AF System

Sony’s translucent mirror realises proprietary AF system

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 Hybrid Cross AF points for quick precise focus

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.

79-point AF sensor with 15 cross points

15 cross AF points in the dedicated phase-detection sensor check precise focus and depth.

399-point focal-plane phase-detection AF sensor

Focal-plane AF with world’s most AF points unites wider coverage and accurate detection.

79 Hybrid Cross AF points

Hybrid Cross measurement gives you fast AF with about any type of subject.

Stunning high resolution

α99 II features a 35mm full-frame 42.4-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor that delivers high-resolution image while providing high sensitivity, minimised noise, and wide dynamic range. Its wide standard ISO range 100-25600 is expandable to even wider ISO 50-102400.

Optical 5-axis image stabilisation

As effective as using 4.5-step faster shutter speed

Shooting should be as steady as possible to minimise the negative effect of camera shake blur. So, α99 II high resolution is optimised with body-integrated 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilisation, fine-tuned to match its 42.4-megapixel performance. You can zoom in on faraway subjects, shoot close-ups, and take night scenes with nearly shake-free clarity in stills and movies.

Correcting pitch and yaw motions

Correcting horizontal/vertical motion

Correcting roll motions

Ample features for greater ease and reliability

You’ll appreciate new α99 II ergonomics. The redesigned body is 8% smaller than the α99, thanks to re-examination of internal layout and reduced size of the 5-axis image stabilisation system. Meticulous attention has been paid to the smallest details, so the new camera provides excellent operability and reliable body rigidity in addition to downsized body dimensions.
