The Sony A77II DSLR: A Hands-on Tour of its New Features and Capabilities


In the following video, Larry Becker presents the Sony a77II DSLR camera and covers its new features and technologies in comparison to the former, original a77. The video begins with a quick rundown of some of the imaging facets, including the 24.3MP APS-C sensor and BIONZ X image processor, and segues into the new 79-point phase-detection autofocus system with 15 central cross-type points and the 12 fps continuous shooting rate. From here, Becker talks about the design of the camera, including the tilt-and-swivel 3.0" LCD screen and OLED electronic viewfinder, and quickly reviews the low-light performance of the camera. The review finishes with a brief introduction to the Sony Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* DT 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 ZA and Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZA SSM lenses and covers some of the imaging modes of the camera.
