Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Most capable in low light conditions
Due to the full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, paired with BIONZ X image processing engine in the body, Sony A7S II can still be able to shoot high quality stills and footages with only just moon, stars, and a headlight on your head as your light sources, with minimal noise.
Pro Great built-in image stabilization
Thanks to the 5-axis image stabilization, the footage is stable and has very little shakiness, even when filming handheld or without a gimbal. The 5-axis image stabilization also works even with third-party lenses.
Con Limited display rotation
To be able to see what kind of picture/video you're taking/recording, a rotating LCD screen can be very useful. In this case, though, the LCD screen can only tilt upwards and downwards. Meaning it can be a bit difficult to see the preview.
Con Short battery life
With only a 1020 mAh lithium-ion battery, you might need more than one or two batteries for it to last a day, given the performance of the camera.
