Sony A77 M2 24.3 Megapixel Black Digital SLR Camera With 16-50mm f/2.8 Lens - ILCA-77M2Q

Features:

  • Never miss a moment with 12fps
    The a77II has fast 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 a77II 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
  • World’s Most AF points— 79-point Phase Detection AF System
    The a77II 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 a77II 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. The a77II also realizes impressive focusing accuracy, even when a large-aperture lens is mounted, thanks to the f/2.8 AF point placed horizontally in the center of the AF sensor overlapping another AF point
  • 24.3 Megapixel Stunning Resolution
    The a77II houses a large APS-C sensor with approx. 24.3 effective megapixels for incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Its high resolving power adopts the same gapless on-chip lens structure as the a7R and features the latest-generation RGB color filter and other cutting-edge device technologies developed by Sony, the number 1 manufacturer of image sensors. The a77II’s image sensor exhibits approximately 20% higher sensitivity and lower noise levels compared to the a77 throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25,600
  • Advanced BIONZ X image processing
    The a77II is equipped with the same BIONZ X image processing engine as on the top-of-the-line full-frame models—a7 and a7R. 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
  • Detail reproduction technology; enhances fine details
    Strong outlines a common characteristic of digital images, are minimized as much as possible to achieve finely detailed images with a natural three-dimensional appearance and naturally depicts 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
  • Diffraction-Reducing Technology
    Diffraction-reducing technology maximizes the optical performance of lenses and produces finer details when shooting with a small aperture setting. Optimal filter processing that best matches the f-number—is applied to correct image points that are blurred, preventing diffraction effects that become an issue when shooting with a deep depth of field and high pixel count. You can therefore depend on finely detailed images even when shooting with a small aperture setting
  • Clean Low Light Images with Low Noise and Area-Specific Noise Reduction
    The a77II has a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25,600 for faster shutter speeds and low-light shooting situations. Combined with detail reproduction technology, area-specific noise reduction effectively suppresses noise and realize high-sensitivity images resulting in fine details and less grain from corner to corner
  • Instant Sharing via Smartphone with Build-in Wi-Fi® and NFC
    Connectivity with smartphones has been simplified with Wi-Fi® and NFC control for one-touch sharing. Simply tap the 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
  • Full HD Movie 1080/60p/60i/24p and Clean Output via HDMI
    Take full control when you shoot HD movies and enjoy the full expressive potential of Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Manual (P/A/S/M) control in HD movie mode. Capture spectacular HD movies in your choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. AVCHD™ codec delivers stunning picture quality. MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web. You also have the option of capturing uncompressed HD to an optional external recorder for super high bitrate via the clean HDMI output
  • Professional Rugged, Weather-Resistant Magnesium Alloy Body
    The a77II 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, VG-C77AM vertical shooting grip or HVL-F60M flash
  • Exceptions EVF - XGA OLED Tru-Finder
    There’s never been anything quite like the OLED Tru-Finder™ electronic viewfinder. For size, speed and brightness even after sunset, this is a gem. It begins with 2,359,296 dots for amazing resolution and high contrast ratio for incredible depth and shows 100% frame coverage. OLED reduces motion blur to a bare minimum. You can also see the results of camera adjustments in real time with superb color and detail, including the ability to display the effects of various camera settings, the use of MF Assist and a peaking function for fine-tuning the focus
  • Three-way Tilt and Swivel LCD Screen
    The a77II incorporates a large 3” TFT LCD with 1,228,800 dots pixel count for bright high resolution and high contrast display making framing and shooting a breeze—even in harsh lighting situations. Tilt it up or down to frame high and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss. Tilt and swivel over the camera for self-portraits. You can even tilt it up and down when you hold the camera in vertical mode! Finally, the monitor folds flush to the camera with the LCD exposed for shooting or protected for travel
  • Full-Time Live View in LCD or EVF
    You can use both the LCD monitor and OLED Electronic Viewfinder for composing shots in Live View. Both provide a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays
  • Every Lens is Stabilized
    The a77II incorporates sensor shift technology called SteadyShot INSIDE™ image stabilization. This means every lens you use—from the widest angle to longest telephoto—Is corrected for camera shake and reduces blur, resulting in crisp and sharp images
  • Built-in Flash (Guide Number 12)
    To help you shoot more effectively, the camera includes a built-in flash (Guide Number 12) that can also trigger a wireless accessory flash (sold separately). The integrated hot shoe enables you to expand your lighting options with a range of accessory flashes (sold separately)
  • Long shutter life
    A highly durable and reliable shutter unit has been proven to endure approximately 150,000 shutter releases. This durability ensures long-lasting shooting performance, including continuous shooting performance that takes into consideration the large number of photos shot by advanced users

I just purchased a 77MII about a week ago so I would have a backup camera. I already have owned an SLT-A77 for over a year and love it as well. The 77II has some nice refinements over the original 77. The biggest being the auto focus is now a little faster and more accurate. The new auto focus has more focus points than the old model but it also has a few key features that I feel make it much more effective. 1. You can adjust the depth of field that the camera will focus on. This helps prevent your lens from "hunting" much in the same way that a focus limiter switch on say a 70-200mm lens would. Only this can be limited from both ends near or far which is even nicer. If my subject is close I can limit the far end and if my subject is far I can limit the near end. Or you can do both to keep it in the middle but I have not tried this yet. 2. You can adjust how quickly the camera will change the auto focus. This is for using continuous auto focus and while I haven't had the chance to try it out thoroughly yet I am impressed with it so far. 3. You now have more options in the focus area menu. One in particular that I am enjoying a lot is the expanded flexible spot. This is like using the center spot only you can choose where you want that spot to be AND it uses (up to 8) other focus spots adjacent to the spot you select to use. I use this one a lot in conjunction with the ability to show only the cross type focus points. I feel that this combo packs a one two punch that I have noticed helps the auto focus to find my subject with a little more speed and accuracy than with out it. All in all the auto focus improvements are very welcome. Two improvements that I feel will always be welcomed in any camera are reduced image noise in low light and faster more accurate auto focus. Another improvement that I enjoy is the lock button on the mode selector knob. There have been too many times when I have pulled my older 77 out of the bag to get a quick shot only to find it had slipped into the wrong mode and I ended up missing the shot. The lock button ensures that the mode selector will stay exactly where you put it, which its very nice. The new hot shoe is also welcomed as when I purchased my original 77 I picked up the FVL-60M and now I no longer have to use an adapter which makes it so much simpler. It also will accept standard hot shoe accessories so I now have more to choices when looking at products that attach there. ie. radio triggers for studio flashes and things like that. The new sensor and processor are also great. The things I have noticed are; less noise in low light shots, improved burst times, (more frames per burst) Wifi and NFC are also great features that I did not expect to enjoy as much as I have. I especially love being able to remote control my camera with my smart phone and actually see on the phone what the camera sees! This is awesome!! While it is limited to just clicking the shutter button and turning the flash on or off it is a great start and love it! I also can appreciate being able to take a picture with my professional camera and send it to my phone for sharing instantly instead of wither taking a lower quality pic with my phone or waiting until later to share it from my computer. While these are not professional features I can appreciate them for the functionality and making it easier to do the things I love to do with my camera. As a professional photographer I can also appreciate that the new body is now weather proof. This is something I was waiting to see Sony do with their cameras. And finally the menu system has more options for changing settings and making the camera work just the way you want it to. The only thing I do not like about this camera is that they switched the function of the from and back control dials when you are changing the ISO. On my original 77 the front dial would make changes in one stop increments like 200, 400, 800, etc. and the back dial would make them in 1/3 steps 200, 250, 320, etc. now that is reversed and it gets confusing especially when I am switching between camera bodies because I have different lenses on each body. To me that is like a car manufacturer deciding to put the brake where the gas pedal is and the gas where the brake pedal is. Why would you do that? It makes no sense to me, and it can be a bit annoying at times. All in all this is an amazing camera for the money and tough to beat. I have only had it for a week and already an am super happy with my purchase. As I become more familiar with it I hope to update this review.

I purchase my first A77 M2 as a pre-order. It had to be returned for service in 45 days and took them a long time to fix it as the parts were on back-order. I purchased my second body when the first was in for repair and in 22 days that needed service, so I just returned it for a full refund. They did repair the first one and I use it, but I kept my A77 as a backup as I never had any problems with that model. I would sell the older A77, but don't have the confidence in Sony to trust I would not get another defective A77 M2 camera.

Perfection has a name...it's A77II.

Comments about Sony A77 M2 24.3 Megapixel Black Digital SLR Camera With 16-50mm f/2.8 Lens:

I own all Sony products...some A mount Zeiss glass and now FE mount A7, etc. What I can say is that the A77II is the best camera Sony makes at the current moment. I admit I haven't tried the A7II but I've tried all the rest. There is no lack of wanting with this camera. At lower ISO's..good luck noting any difference between this and Sony's full frame 24MP cameras. FPS is lightning fast and accurate, the build quality is fantastic. The price point is a steal. They took the A77 and perfected it- done and end of story. Everything you want in a Sony body with nothing missing. Perfect ergonomics for glass big or small, decent battery life. Focus peaking, zebra- best fold out screen in the business. The A77II is a total sleeper and IMO showcases what Sony can really do. The magic is in A mount land and I can't freaking wait until they unleash the A99II beast. A77II is a camera I'll have in my bag until it stops shooting. Great job Sony.

Comments about Sony A77 M2 24.3 Megapixel Black Digital SLR Camera With 16-50mm f/2.8 Lens:

I've owned Sony A77M2 for half year now. I have to say that I did a lot of research prior to make my decision and I was having on my mind Nikon D7100 and Canon 70D until I've seen this one... And I have to say I'm definitely satisfied with it's performance so far. Although as a beginner in this field I'm still exploring it's endless possibilities. Great AF, 12 fps in burst mode nails every moment between moments and delivers great over 90% in focus photos. I've done also some footage with it and have to say that I'm lovin' it's LCD screen that you can shift in literally every direction. However, could be LCD touch... I hope that maybe in future Sony will consider to improve this.

I have waited a long time before finally buying a Sony a77 mark 2. I researched all my other camera options, both Sony and the competition. I can say I made the right choice. After you use the electronic viewfinder for a while, you'll never go back to optical. It's truly amazing. Just one single example: If you're the photographer at a wedding and reception, the locations are dark, as you may know. But with the 77 mark 2, just flipping up the built-in flash(or turning on an attached flash) greatly brightens up the viewfinder. This makes it very easy to check autofocus accuracy before shooting. It also makes manual focusing a snap because it looks like someone suddenly turned on the lights!. Back when I was still using optical viewfinder cameras, accurate focusing was stressful and nerve-racking every time, in a typical reception or any dimly lit location. The camera looks awesome with the vertical grip. My only disappointment is camera A-mount support. Sony chose to push their new E-mount based cameras and lenses. I wanted, and waited...and waited... for Sony to upgrade the 100mm macro to a SSM version. It never came. A new macro 90mm came in E-mount but there is no way I can use it now. But there ARE ways to put A-mount lenses on E-mount cameras! Would I recommend the Sony a77 mark 2? You bet! Just be aware that NOW there is a "Sony A" and a "Sony B". I'm very happy with my 77 mark 2. The only things that would make it even better is a second memory card slot, and an option to attach copyright notice to the images and videos.

Shutter speed is the best. Still learning all the features. Especially great for sports pictures. Auto is good when you don't know what to do.

One of the Best APS-C Cameras on the Market

The Sony A77 II is close to (if not at) the top of the full-size APS-C DSLR market. It's focusing speed, object tracking, metering, and more, are class-leading. I enjoyed using it but have since decided to go all-ILCE (mirrorless) so I sold mine and now use the Sony A7m2 and and Sony A6000.

Comments about Sony A77 M2 24.3 Megapixel Black Digital SLR Camera With 16-50mm f/2.8 Lens:

6 months of shooting on the a77ii and I cannot be more pleased. The image quality is superb, while the loads of features packed into this camera are as cutting edge as anything in the camera world. I started on Sony so I have always felt the need to stick with them since I did not want to replace all of my lenses which would be very costly... The a77ii makes me not feel like this any longer.. I truly feel I am using Sony because it is the best product for me. The autofocus system is really a shining star here, allowing for more time worrying about subject than "will I have things in focus" The ONLY gripe I have, is that with the electronic viewfinder, I find battery life to be lacking somewhat. Have been on many shoots now where I have gone through 3 battery packs. But otherwise.... this is a fantastic dslr that easily makes a case to switch from the bog two (canon, Nikon) imho.

This camera is the best since the 900; every thing works as it should except the very poor wi-fi implementation, What is Sony thinking...rx1 is far superior. This was traded for dropping gps which I used for work and worked beautifully, please bring it back. No one can complain, at its price point, the best camera out there.

Fast focusing & tracking! Only problem is dust on sensor! Only had 1 month.I never change lenses in field! Never had dust on sensor so quick! Makes you wonder if it was in body all ready! Have heard other photographers say the same thing! Have other Sony cameras and it took months to get dust on sensor! Still love camera!

I've had it since October 2014, so didn't use it much over the winter but looking forward to the warmer weather and more shooting opportunities. This is a keeper which I'll grow into. This camera has so many adjustments, it will take me some time to learn all of them, but you can use one of the Auto settings and get great shots without much thought. One thing is clear, this camera is highly customizable and I like the 3 custom settings on the mode dial. The menu system is pretty easy to go through too and, for all the available options, I think its laid out pretty well. Use the viewfinder most of the time, but the LCD works well too. Like the info screen on top and the two control wheels. The camera itself is really not big at all and fairly light, but its the lens that will add to the size and weight. I wanted a single solution lens so have the Tamron 16-300mm mounted, which is a nice match for the camera. Downsides? Well, it would certainly be nice if they could shave some more ounces off; the size is just right and feels good in my hands. The LCD is articulated, which is great for low-level compositions, but I'm still getting used to it; it swings out and up, and the screen swivels, but proximity to the camera body sometimes impedes the swiveling; I like the Canon arrangement better. Oh, and I think the ISO should be displayed on the top LCD, its a critical part of the exposure triangle, for pete's sake!

I've been very happy with the a77II. I have a full frame Sony and this lets me get a little extra tele out of the lenses I have. It has been great in every respect. I shot a wedding using this and the 24-70 Zeiss lens and Sony flash and was amazed at the color.
