Among the new capabilities in the α99 II, there are several features of particular interest for video shooters.
Internal 4K With No Pixel Binning
For the first time in a Sony A-mount camera, the α99 II has the ability to record 4K video internally with full pixel readout and no pixel binning through usage of the professional friendly XAVC S format.
Slow And Quick Mode
The camera is capable of recording high quality footage at 100Mbps for 4K recording, and utilizing the full width of the large, full-frame image sensor in doing so. It also offers a new ‘Slow and Quick’ mode (S&Q) that 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.
Pro-oriented Controls and Features
A host of other features for professional movie production workflow are also included in the α99 II such as picture profiles, time code and clean HDMI output as well as gamma assist for real time S-Log monitoring and a zebra mode for easier exposure adjustment. S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma are both included as well.
