Sony Alpha A7 II

Mirrorless Camera – Full-frame camera with exceptional performance

Key Features:
  • 24.3-megapixel full-frame sensor
  • 5-axis optical image stabilisation
  • 2.4m dot OLED EVF, 117-point phase detection AF

Sony's A7 range is special as they're the only compact mirrorless cameras to offer a full-frame sensor. The Sony Alpha A7 II builds on the success of original with the addition of five-axis in-body stabilisation. To achieve this in such a compact body is remarkable and the results are as impressive as you'd hope.

The benefit is great performance in all conditions, not to mention loads of detail thanks to the full-frame, 24.3-megapixel sensor. It's a great video camera, too, and there's a 3.5mm audio input for mounting an external mic. The only real issue with the the A7 II is the so-so battery life, as it tends to run out after around 270 shots.

Price: £1,200
