The Sony α77 mark II has a 24 million-pixel sensor, but this is a new device that benefits from the progress that has been made with sensor design in the two-and-a-half-plus years since the α77 first arrived.
Our head of testing Angela Nicholson takes a look at what this new Sony camera has to offer in her Sony α77 review video.
Sony has unveiled the successor to its popular alpha 77, launching the Sony A77 II. Chief among the new features on the Sony A77 II spec sheet is Sony’s latest-generation 24.3-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor (APS-C) and BIONZ X image processing engine.
Sony will eschew traditional DSLRs and concentrate on developing its DSLT cameras, the company has revealed.
Speaking to our sister website TechRadar, Paul Genge from Sony UK said, “We have no SLRs in our line-up today, and our intention is to develop the SLT technology and make that a real stand-out in the market.”
He also reiterated that Sony’s president made a statement during the IFA consumer electronics show that the company is going to be looking at full frame as the next introduction for for its SLT line of cameras.
