New-generation 79 point phase detection AF system
The advanced AF system on the new ?77 II camera features 79 phase detection AF points – the most of any dedicated AF sensor in market today – and includes 15 cross points within the central area of the sensor. Additionally, metering data from all 79 focus points is processed by a brand new AF algorithm that predicts the subject’s movement. These impressive new features combined with Sony’s powerful Translucent Mirror Technology ensure that fast-moving people, animals or any other relevant object can be tracked quickly and accurately in all types of shooting conditions.
Shoot a continuous burst of 60 full-resolution frames at up to 12 fps
Continuous shooting stamina on the ?77 II camera outpaces nearly all cameras in its class as well as many professional cameras. The new model can capture a non-stop burst of up to 60 full-resolution JPEG images at a maximum continuous shooting speed of approximately 12 frames per second with continuous AF (in Continuous Advance Priority AE mode).
24.3 megapixel Exmor® CMOS image sensor with enhanced sensitivity
A showcase of Sony’s leading image sensor technologies, the new 24.3 megapixel Exmor® CMOS image sensor in the ?77 II camera features the same gapless on-chip lens structure as used in the acclaimed ?7R and ?6000 models. Thanks to an array of latest-generation imaging innovations, the sensor now offers 20 per cent greater sensitivity than its predecessor (?77), and ensures flawless image detail and low-noise performance across the wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600.
OLED Tru-Finder and 3-way tilting LCD
The ?77 II features a crisp, bright XGA OLED Tru-Finder with 236,000 dot resolution. With about three times higher contrast and resolving power compared to the original ?77, the EVF on the new ?77 II shows the effects of all settings adjustments in real-time, accurately displaying what the final image will look like. A wide viewing angle and high eye-point are complemented by a newly-expanded choice of brightness settings, and shooters have the ability to manually adjust olour temperature for comfortable, accurate composition.
Expanded Control and Customization
Evolved from the original ?77 model, there are separate control dials on both sides of the grip for simpler control settings adjustments. In total, the ?77 II camera has 11 customizable buttons with up to 51 assignable functions.
Tough enough for serious enthusiasts
The tough, light magnesium body of the ?77 II camera is engineered to withstand the demands of the most serious enthusiasts. It features a dust and moisture sealed design and a large, contoured grip for comfortable handling. In addition, the camera’s durable shutter unit is rated for 150,000 total shots.
Pro-style movie shooting with continuous AF
The ?77 II camera can record Full HD 60p and 24p movies using the AVCHD 2.0 format. As with still shooting, Translucent Mirror Technology enables full-time phase-detection AF, ensuring accurate focus tracking with fast-moving subjects during video capture.
Wi-Fi® and PlayMemories Connectivity
On-board Wi-Fi allows one-touch connection for easy shot sharing with your Xperia®, NFC-compatible Android smartphones, tablets and VAIO® computers. A single touch also activates Smart Remote Control, linking the camera to your mobile phone enabling you to fire the shutter from a distance.
