Sony’s Cameras α7R II, RX10 II and RX100 IV: Sony’s Sensor Technology Enables Photographers to Take Detailed Photographs in the Most Challenging Low Light Conditions in Icelandic Ice CavesFri November 27, 2015
Photographer Mikael Buck and renowned local guides Einar Runar Sigurdsson and Helen Maria explored the frozen world using Sony’s latest digital cameras including:
- The α7R II featuring the world’s first back-illuminated full-frame sensor which “brings together ultra-high resolution and ultra-high sensitivity.“

See reality as your mind’s eye envisions it with the incredible new Sony α7R II. The world’s first*1 back-illuminated 35mm full-frame CMOS image sensor gives this camera capability to deliver 42.4-megapixel*2 resolution, high sensitivity and fast response that are apparent in every amazing picture. The Fast Hybrid AF system’s extra-wide dense focal plane phase-detection AF coverage keeps subjects in sharp focus, while 5-axis image stabilization reduces blur which otherwise tends to affect handheld shots. High-resolution imaging is further enhanced by 4K movie recording now featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning. With so much innovation packed into such a compact form, it’s clear that there is more to life than meets the naked eye.
