Today we are pleased to tell you about the Sony A77 II, a camera that leaves nothing indifferent.
The Sony A77 II is designed to be fast and effective . Of her they emphasize his no less than 79 points of approach by detection of phase, of which 15 in cross. This translates into a super fast and precise camera in focus, capable of effectively chasing moving subjects without losing focus, even working in burst.

We have already advanced some of them throughout the article. This camera highlights especially its 79 focus points (15 cross), which makes it, if not the fastest (up to 12 fps), one of the fastest in the market today, both in focus and in Shooting. Everything in it is designed to be so. To the focus points is added a Sony-patented translucent mirror that replaces the classic mobile mirrors of the other DSLRs and allows faster autofocus, as well as a new autofocus algorithm that predicts the movement of the subject thus avoiding lose focus
Of robust and ergonomic constitution , protected against dust and splashes, with a flip-down LCD monitor on three axes and high quality (1,228,000 points) to achieve almost any angle of shooting and an electronic viewfinder that covers 100% of the frame and a 33º viewing angle and that allows you to preview the scene exactly. It also allows us to frame by screen or viewfinder, and has a proximity sensor that deactivates the screen when we approach the viewfinder to save battery.
Nor should we forget its 24.3MP effective Exmor sensor and its high ISO range of 100 to 25,600. In addition, it has an integrated stabilizer both in the camera and in the viewfinder, and Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity with integrated flash and shoe to add an external one.
There are few disadvantages in this camera objectively. Many depend on the perception that each of us have about what should or should not be a good camera. For example, the viewfinder is optical , something that some annoys and others love. We also find that the screen is not touch , which today can be somewhat disappointing for the odd user.

You have to be a little more advanced to enjoy it and not be frustrated with its weight, its buttons and its infinite possibilities, otherwise, the price will not compensate you too much.
