Sony Announces the α77II (Alpha 77 Mark II) Translucent Mirror DSLR Camera

The Sony α77II DSLR Camera Houses a Large APS-C Sensor With 24.3 Effective Megapixels for Incredible Detail and Gorgeous Enlargements; Sony Alpha 77 Mark II Is Built for the Real Photography World, With a Rugged Magnesium Alloy Body That Combines

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 01, 2014) - B&H Photo is pleased to announce the release of the new Sony α77II (Alpha 77 Mark II) Translucent Mirror DSLR Camera equipped with the same BIONZ  X image-processing engine as on the top-of-the-line full-frame models -- α7 and α7R cameras. This engine achieves approximately three times the processing speed of previous BIONZ, and features all the latest image-processing technologies, which are optimized for this model. The result is astonishingly high-speed processing capabilities, as well as faithfully reproduced textures and amazing definition.

The Sony α77II has the world's fastest continuous shooting speed in its class -- up to 12 frames per second at full resolution. Equipped with a 79-point AF sensor and advanced auto focus tracking technology, you never have to miss a moment. The α77II outperforms even more expensive rivals with continuous auto focus and auto exposure when shooting at 12fps at full 24.3MP resolution, and can capture up to 60 frames in a single burst when in JPEG fine setting.

The α77II camera is equipped with a newly-developed phase detection auto focus system, featuring wide coverage 79 AF points. Fifteen of the AF points are cross-type, and placed in the most-frequently-used central area of the sensor. This helps the α77II achieve accurate focusing even with horizontally striped subjects, which line-type AF points typically find challenging. The new AF system also performs well in low-light conditions -- as low as EV -2 (ISO 100), which is similar to a moonlit night under which objects are difficult to see even with the naked eye. The new AF algorithm instantly recognizes and reliably tracks the desired subject.

Strong outlines -- a common characteristic of digital images -- are minimized with the α77II as much as possible, to achieve finely-detailed images with a natural three-dimensional appearance, naturally depicting subjects as seen by human vision. This increases the ability to depict detailed textures, and brings photography another step closer to creating totally realistic, high-quality images.

The Sony α77II is a high-quality, high-precision shooting tool built for the real world, with a rugged magnesium alloy body that combines high strength with light weight. Sealing around the main buttons, dials, ports and doors are weather-resistant, with a double-layered structure that enhances sealing effectiveness at all camera body openings including the media compartment and terminal area. The same high-level resistance to dust and moisture is maintained even when the camera is mounted with the 16-50mm F2.8 (SAL1650) zoom lens. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1047081-REG/sony_ilca77m2q_alpha_a77_ii_dslr.html

Connectivity with smartphones has been simplified with Wi-Fi and NFC control for one-touch sharing. Simply tap the α77II DSLR camera to another NFC-enabled device like a tablet or smartphone, and photos are transferred with just one touch. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control, the camera's shutter can be conveniently controlled by your smartphone's touchscreen.
