SONY A7RII & Back-illuminated Sensor

A new A7RII announced by SONY yesterday is really the monster camera.

sony_a7rII_f001Besides many of excellent features such as 5-axis IS, 399 AF points(amazing!!) and in-camera 4K recording, I was surprised this was the industry-1st back-illuminated full frame sensor. I’d like to applaud SONY’s manufacturing break-through for the back-illuminated sensor’s mass-production. This should be great news for all of our consumers. The back-illuminated full frame sensor is more affordable now. I think SONY’s sensor technology (especially manufacturing and QC technique) is way ahead of any other competitors.

Personally I wish the back-illuminated sensor will be incorporated into A7 version II one day. Probably that’s the time to upgrade my astro camera.
