α77 II A-mount camera with APS-C sensor

24.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor with gapless on-chip lens design

Upgraded Exmor® CMOS sensor enhances sensitivity and reduces noise by filling gaps between on-chip lenses. Sensor offers 20% higher sensitivity than the previous model.

BIONZ X processor

Enhanced processing engine handles enormous amounts of sensor data to allow very high-speed shooting of superb, low-noise images.

79-point, phase-detection AF system

Newly developed AF system with 15 cross-sensors for accurate, nonstop autofocus-effective with viewfinder or live view on LCD.

Quick AF Full HD movie

Shoot 1920 x 1080 video with full-time AF tracking of moving subjects: now with 60p/24p progressive shooting for cinematic results.

Proprietary Translucent Mirror Technology

Sony's unique design replaces a DSLR moving mirror with a fixed translucent mirror, which allows ultrafast shooting with continuous use of accurate phase-detection AF.

12 fps with AF tracking

Capture fast-moving action with razor-sharp tracking, at up to 12 fps (approx. maximum speed with Continuous AF mode). Shoot 60 frames per burst, when quality set to FINE and image size set to L.

AF Range Control

Locks autofocusing to a specified range of distance from the camera for sharp results, even if the target is obscured momentarily by another passing object.

Wide sensitivity range from ISO 100–25,600

High maximum sensitivity allows natural, low-noise images, even in low light: expansion mode extends sensitivity down to ISO 50.

Creative Full HD movie functions

Enjoy sharp, accurate autofocusing with full-time AF; P/A/S/M exposure modes offer total creative control.

XGA OLED Tru-Finder

Precision electronic viewfinder with high contrast and 100% frame coverage for accurate framing, focusing, and shot review.

High-resolution information display

Select from Graphic Display, Display All Info, No Disp. Info, Histogram, and Digital Level Gauge display options.

3-way tilting LCD screen

Freely adjustable high-resolution (1228K dot) LCD with WhiteMagic technology for clear viewing, even under direct sunlight.

Face detection with face registration

Recognizes up to eight faces in a scene, optimizing optimum exposure, white balance, flash, and other settings for beautiful portraits.

Expanded Flexible Spot

If the active AF point begins to lose track of your subject, one of eight surrounding AF points instantly activates for continuous, accurate tracking of your moving subject.

Clear Image Zoom

Digitally zooms center portion of image up to 2x with nearly imperceptible degradation, virtually doubling your zooming range.

5-step tracking adjustment

AF tracking duration is adjustable in five steps, with low settings prioritizing stability and high settings prioritizing speed (ideal when shooting various subjects at different distances, for example). Three settings are also available when shooting movies.

Eye AF

Captures faces in sharp focus, even when your subject is partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field.

Enhanced AF area modes

Lock-on AF, which optimizes target frame size and ensures use of the optimal AF point, is now available as a focus area mode. You can choose the initial AF point for tracking from the Wide, Zone, Center, Flexible Spot, or Expanded Flexible Spot AF area mode.

Enhanced in-body image stabilization

Effective image stabilization for any compatible lens, throughout the entire focal length range. Helps stabilize the viewfinder image when the shutter button is halfway pressed.

BIONZ X processing engine

The enhanced processor handles enormous amounts of sensor data for high-speed shooting of superb low-noise images. Advanced built-in features include detail reproduction technology to produce more realistic images, diffraction reduction to correct blurred details, and area-specific noise reduction for clearer, more finely detailed images even at high ISO settings. Area-specific noise selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures, and evenly colored areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction to each area.
