Sony’s latest E-mount mirrorless cameras have wowed photographers with their low light and high ISO capabilities. Now it looks like its latest A-mount SLT, the new Sony a99 II, will do the same. Above is a 2-minute video showing its performance at ISOs up to 25600 in a room lit only by two candles.
“The sensor is spectacular, the level of detail is astonishing,” writes YouTuber bramansde, who posted the video. “High ISO […] essentially same or close of Sony A7Rii which uses the same sensor: when images are downscaled to 12MP, the noise at high ISO becomes equivalent to the A7s!”
bramansde also published a 10-minute video showing how the Sony a99 II performs at high ISOs in still photos by pixel peeping at some 100% crops:
They posted this sample ISO 102400 photo shot in “fine” JPEG with no noise reduction or post-processing:
The Sony a99 II is set to hit store shelves later this month with a price tag of $3,200. Main features include a 42MP full frame sensor, 4K video, a hybrid AF system, 12fps shooting, a 5-axis stabilizer, and 14-bit RAW.
