A few more Sony A7RII details have showed up on the web before a major product launch event which will be held by Sony by the end of May 2015.

One or more announcements will be made by Sony in May in order to introduce three or more cameras. One of the products that is coming is the A7R replacement, the rumor mill says. Before its official unveiling, some Sony A7RII details appeared online, most of them having already been mentioned in gossip talks. However, one of them is a novelty and it says that the full-frame mirrorless camera might come packed with a brand new and improved RAW technology.

Sony A7R will be repalced by an A7RII camera with a better RAW engine among other novelties.

New Sony A7RII details show up confirming previous ones

For starters, it is becoming more clear that the A7RII will be almost identical to its predecessor when it comes to specs and design. The A7II replaced the A7 bearing an in-body image stabilization technology. The 5-axis IBIS system will be available in the A7R successor and the sensor will be the same 36.4-megapixel unit.

Another improvement will be made to the ISO which is said to be “better”. It is unclear whether noise will be reduced or a higher sensitivity setting will be added. The maximum ISO of the A7R stands at 25,600 and it would be great if the A7RII kicks it up a notch to ISO 51,200.

Finally, it appears that the camera will be speedier, allowing photographers to capture more fps in burst mode. The existing model does 4fps in continuous mode, so it remains to be seen how fast the A7RII will be.

Sony A7R replacement might get a better RAW engine

A different source has revealed other Sony A7RII details. The PlayStation maker has been working on a new RAW system in recent times, which could be added into the upcoming model.

If better RAW is coming to the A7-series, then professional photographers will surely pay even more attention to this line-up.

In the past, it has been said that the A7RII will also employ a silent shutter mode, which is one of the most requested features among Sony fans. The same rumor said that an improved processing engine will be added into the A7R replacement, which will bring enhanced low-light prowess and faster burst mode, thus confirming the aforementioned information

The A7RII launch event will take place sometime this May, so stay close for more info!
