The Sony Alpha SLT-A77 DSLR Camera Body and Battery Grip Kit
contains the A77 digital camera along with a vertical battery grip to provide increased battery life as well as a more ergonomic means for shooting in the vertical orientation. The grip integrates a wide array of camera controls within its design, including a secondary shutter release button, selector dial, AE/AF controls, and function buttons for more effective handling while shooting vertically. Additionally, a microfiber cleaning cloth is included for cleaning and maintaining dust and oil-free LCD and lens surfaces.
The A77 features a 24.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080i/p video at both 24 and 60 fps. Sony's Translucent Mirror Technology is utilized within the camera to provide continuous phase-detection auto focusing capabilities as well as quick shooting performance, including the ability to shoot up to 12 fps in full resolution. Live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation can be done on either the XGA OLED Tru-Finder 2,359k-dot EVF or the 3.0" 921.6k-dot LCD monitor, which features a three-way tilting design for easier viewing from high and low angles. A range of imaging modes are also available to help produce more refined images in-camera, including Auto HDR, Handheld Twilight, and Multi-Frame NR modes.
