Sony SLT-A77 II Review

 

The Sony SLT-A77 II is - as the name implies - an overhaul of the original A77, from from 2011. The A77 Mark II features a new autofocus sensor, and it's much more than a refreshed version of an existing design. Instead the A77 II is built around the...

Sony Alpha 77 II

 

The Sony Alpha 77 II has one of the quickest autofocus systems we've seen on an SLR and can shoot at 12fps, making it our Editors' Choice.

Excellent high ISO image quality. 12fps continuous shooting. Fast, 79-point autofocus system. In-body stabilization. Sharp OLED EVF. Excellent control layout. Sharp, articulated rear LCD. Seamless Live View experience. Built-in Wi-Fi. PC sync flash...

A little slow to start and shoot. Single memory card slot. No built-in GPS. Some photographers prefer an optical viewfinder.

Remote control is also supported, but it's very limited. The Alpha 77 II streams a smooth Live View feed to your phone's display, but you're only able to toggle the flash, self-timer, and shutter. There's no way to set a focus point or exert any manual...

We've not had long with the SLT-a77 II, so we're not in a position to form particularly firm opinions. That said, it's clear that Sony has kept a lot of what was good with the original a77 - including rather nice build, handling and ergonomics. These...

Sony Alpha 77 (SLT-A77VQ)

 

The Sony Alpha 77 pumps out 24-megapixel stills at 10.3 frames per second and records 1080p60 video with continuous autofocus. Solid low-light performance, a sharp f/2.8 kit lens, a high-quality OLED EVF, and GPS capability round out the package.

Excellent kit lens. High-resolution sensor. Fast burst shooting. Good high ISO performance. 1080p60 video with autofocus. Crisp OLED EVF. GPS.

Recovery time needed after burst shooting. No optical viewfinder. Proprietary hot shoe.

If you're the type of shooter who wants to get out and take photos in inclement weather, note that the Alpha 77 does have some weather sealing—but it's not a fully weatherproof camera like the Pentax K-5 or Olympus E-5 ($1,699.99 body only, 3 stars)....

Sony A77 II Review

 

The Sony A77 II is a new interchangeable lens camera that uses Translucent Mirror Technology to offer high-speed shooting and a smaller body size. The 24.3 megapixel A77 II features a class-leading 79-point auto-focus system with 15 cross-sensors,...

It may look almost identical to the three-year-old A77, but the latest Mark II version has a lot of new tricks up its sleeve that take Sony's prosumer interchangeable lens camera in a more action oriented direction that will particularly appeal to...
