The Sony A77II Digital SLR Camera released in June 2014 is a product that is an overhaul of the APS-C camera released in 2011. Designed for “advanced amateurs”, the A77II can easily be recognized as the best digital SLR camera for 2014 given its spectacular features.
Its key features include:
The Sony camera 2014 has an autofocus sensor combined with the capability to shoot 12 frames per second. The sensor allows you to use focus points adjacent to the currently active point. Aside from this, it has an updated 24.3 megapixels (MP) sensor and several other upgrades in its identifying technology such as the eye autofocus (a level-up from the good ‘ol face detector!), a distance limiter (which allows the specification of the range of focus distance for the subject to travel), and an advanced version of the lock-on autofocus, which allows the user to specify an off-center autofocus point. The autofocus sensor also has a wide and dense point coverage, allowing for greater flexibility and easier usage.
It has several autofocus options, including: Wide, Flexible Spot, Expanded Flexible Spot, Lock On, and Zone (which has nine zones). The tracking duration of the autofocus can also be changed across five levels, depending on the condition that the user is working on. The A7 Mark II also has a sensor development, so that the device has less electric noise and improved accuracy particularly in low-light areas.
Through the BIONZ X image processor, the image quality of the A7II is also comparatively more advanced than its counterpart. It has excellent images even in highly sensitive conditions. The camera also has the ability to shoot a total of 60 frames in continuous autofocus. Aside from this, the A7II can shoot up to 25 raw and JPEG images in a single burst – a huge improvement from its predecessor’s 11 raw images. The camera is also said to have the capacity to record 53 extra fine JPEGs all in one blast.
The A77II is definitely within the top of the line of the new sony digital cameras. It can easily compete with other models and be considered to be one of the best digital cameras 2014 through its sophisticated autofocus and imaging system. Enthusiasts would be pleased with the upgrades that Sony has done in the camera, and being one of the cheaper cameras in the line, it can be said that the A77II gives one the best value for their money.
