New York, NY (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
Adorama (http://www.adorama.com), one of the world’s largest photography, video, imaging and electronics retailers, now has available for pre-order Sony’s newly announced Alpha 77 Mark II Translucent Mirror DSLR camera. The camera can be pre-ordered online at http://www.adorama.com/results/a77may14 and is expected to start shipping to customers in June 2014.
Targeted to advanced amateur photographers, the A77 Mark II offers key features such as superb subject tracking that’s exceptionally fast and accurate, even during 12fps continuous shooting. Among interchangeable-lens digital cameras equipped with APS-C sensors (as of May 1, 2014), 12fps is the world’s fastest continuous shooting speed available. Its breakthrough performance is due to 79 autofocus (AF) points – also the world’s highest number among interchangeable-lens digital cameras that have dedicated phase-detection AF sensors (as of May 1, 2014). Sony combines Translucent Mirror Technology with BIONZ X image processing to make both features fast and accurate.
Sony’s A77 Mark II DSLR camera offers an Exmor CMOS sensor with approximately 24.3 effective megapixels. This technology provides ultra-high image quality for both still images and Full HD1080 movies. First introduced in the A7 and A7R models, the BIONZ X image processing engine delivers class-above image quality that looks remarkably real. For even more control while filming movies, the A77 Mark II now has Zebra function and AF Tracking Duration for moving subjects, in addition to an audio level meter and control, and native 4K output onto 4K-compatible TVs via HDMI or Wi-Fi.
In addition, various AF functions and precision manual settings help users attain the best results in any type of scene. New AF functions include Eye AF to get sharp focus even if your subject partially turns away from the camera, and AF Range Control, which allows AF to be adjusted to operate within a certain range of distance, so users can focus on subjects without interference from other objects in the scene.
Sony offers high operability and reliability that lets users fully control the camera. Improved functionality is found in the A77 Mark II’s three-way tiltable WhiteMagic LCD screen, which gives clearer viewing under direct sunlight, and up to three recall sets with the Memory Recall function, an intuitive and customizable user interface, and 53 assignable functions over 11 customizable buttons. Wi-Fi connectivity is also enhanced, with NFC technology simplifying the initial Wi-Fi linking with Android-equipped mobile devices. Once connected, users can easily share photos with mobile devices and TVs, as well as use the Smart Remote Control to command camera functions from their mobile devices.
