Kit Description

Available to hire is the Sony a7S II 12.2 MP E-Mount Camera with a 35mm full-frame Image Sensor, 4K Video Recording and a 5-Axis Image Stabilization System. A amazing low light camera with a clean HDMI out that stays on as long as power and HDMI connected without any power save.

To use this camera with EF mount lenses, check out the additional Metabones Canon EF Lens to Sony E Mount T Smart Adapter - allowing the use of Canon EF mount lenses on the Sony camera body. We have dummy battery adapters (DTAP power) and dummy AC mains adapters also available to hire with this camera.


Offering ultra-high sensitivity and wide dynamic range across the entire ISO range and 5-axis image stabilisation for greater shooting control, the α7S II delivers stunning image quality for photographers who shoot in the most challenging light conditions. The α7SII also incorporates a host of pro-style movie functions including the ability to shoot 4K video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning in full-frame format, making it an extremely appealing proposition for photographers and videographers alike.

The α7S II delivers an awe-inspiring sensitivity range of ISO 50-409600, thanks to the combination of its 35mm full-frame 12.2 megapixel image sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine. This means that the resulting stills and movies demonstrate extra-fine detail with minimal noise.

Video Master

The α7S II can record 4K movies internally in the XAVC S format meaning that content is wonderfully detailed. Because information from all pixels is utilised without line skipping or pixel binning, the camera can maximise the expanded power of the full-frame image sensor and produce 4K movies with higher image clarity and negligible moiré. Full pixel readout without pixel binning is also employed when shooting Full HD movies.

In a first for the α7 series, the α7S II can record 120fps at 100Mbps with full pixel readout without pixel binning in full frame format which can be edited into wonderful 4x/5x slow motion footage in Full HD.

Video functionality has been further enhanced with new profiles; S-Gamut3, Cine/S-Log3 and S-Gamut3/S-Log3. These new profiles deliver wide dynamic range and colour correction is easier to perform. The α7S ll even offers impressive 14-stop latitude in the S-Log3 gamma setting. The camera also supports S-Gamut/S-Log2 which is very popular among cinematographers and videographers.

5-Axis Image Stabilisation

The new α7S II is equipped with the innovative 5-axis image stabilisation system that is proving extremely popular in the α7 II and α7R II cameras. The system corrects camera shake along five axes during shooting, including angular shake (pitch and yaw) which has the greatest impact on image quality and tends to occur with a telephoto lens, shift shake (X and Y axes) which becomes noticeable as magnification increases, and rotational shake (roll) that often affects night shooting or video recording.

The Sony a7s II is supplied with 1 x sensor blower, 1 x mains adapter and 1x Sony battery charger plus the kit items listed. It will be shipped inside a Peli case for safety and easy storage.

Note: This camera is not supplied with a lens.
This camera requires lenses to operate. These lenses must have a Sony E-Mount, Canon EOS via the Metabones adapter. All of our lenses on this site are compatible with the EOS mount system.
