Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Silver Award
April 2015
The a77 II strikes an impressive balance between features, functionality and price point. Although in use many of its biggest selling points do have qualifications attached, none of these limitations is a deal breaker.

Personal takes

Dan BracagliaDan BracagliaReviewer
The a77 II is a fantastic sports, action and wildlife camera and one of only a handful of cameras that can successfully use continuous AF during video capture. Its high speed shooting and continuous AF capabilities are on par with far more expensive, pro-level bodies, though it has some limitations.
Rishi SanyalRishi SanyalDeputy/Tech Editor
The a77 II is packed with features. SLT technology enables fast burst rates and a pro-grade AF module that keeps up at 12 fps and during movie recording. While subject tracking and low light performance aren’t up there with the best of its competition, the inclusion of features like face-detect AF, in-body image stabilization, and WiFi/NFC connectivity guarantee broad appeal and makes the a77 II a great value camera.

Reasons to buy

  • New, improved AF: Building on the Sony a6000's AF technology, the a77 II offers 79 points with 15 cross-type, covering 40% of the frame
  • Continuous shooting: Up to 60 JPEGs can be captured at 12 fps with continuous autofocus
  • Operation: A versatile swiveling LCD and solid ergonomics make the a77 II easy to use
  • Build quality: A mid-size DSLR, the a77 II has a solid, weather-sealed magnesium alloy body
  • Video: The a77 II can record 1080/60p video (using the XAVC S codec) with continuous autofocus and image stabilization

Things to consider

  • Noise: At high sensitivities, images are noisier than other cameras in this class
  • Subject tracking: In theory the a77 II can track moving subjects exceptionally well, though it was not very reliable in our tests
  • Limitations in high speed burst mode: You'll have very little control over shutter speed and aperture when shooting at 12 frames per second
  • Buffer delays: It takes the a77 II longer than its peers to save images to a memory card after taking a long burst of photos
Notable features
24MP, stabilized CMOS sensor and SLT technology
24MP, stabilized CMOS sensor and SLT technology
The a77 II's innards consist of more than a traditional mirror and 24MP CMOS sensor. The sensor is image stabilized, so every lens you attach has shake reduction. The mirror is translucent, allowing for light to travel to a traditional AF sensor near the electronic viewfinder. This allows for continuous autofocus at high frame rates.

Product Description

With built-in NFC (near-field communication) technology, this Sony Alpha a77 II DSLR camera makes it simple to share images with select devices. The magnesium-alloy body resists damage due to moisture and dust for use in harsh environments.

From the Manufacturer

Sony make . believe

Sony make . believe
Capture the moment more decisively than ever before. Sony’s α77II delivers the world’s fastest1 shooting at 12 fps, while amazing 79-point Phase Detection AF keeps fast-moving subjects in focus and a 24.3MP sensor delivers stunning and detailed imagery. Even sharing is fast thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and NFC.


Never miss a moment with 12fps

The α77II has up to 12 frames per second at full resolution. Equipped with a 79 point AF sensor and advanced auto focus tracking, technology, you never have to miss a moment. The α77II outperforms even more expensive rivals with continuous auto focus and auto exposure when shooting at 12fps at full 24.3MP resolution and can capture up to 60 frames in a single burst when in JPEG fine setting.

World’s Most AF points1— 79-point Phase Detection AF System

The α77II is equipped with a newly developed phase detection auto focus system, featuring wide coverage 79 AF points. Fifteen of the AF points are cross-type and placed in the most-frequently-used central area of the sensor. This helps the α77II achieve accurate focusing even with horizontally striped subjects, which line-type AF points typically find challenging. The new AF system also performs well in low-light conditions—as low as EV -2 (ISO 100), which is similar to a moonlit night under which objects are difficult to see even with the naked eye. The new AF algorithm instantly recognizes and reliably tracks the desired subject. The α77II also realizes impressive focusing accuracy, even when a large-aperture lens is mounted, thanks to the f/2.8 AF point placed horizontally in the center of the AF sensor overlapping another AF point.

24.3 Megapixel Stunning Resolution

The α77II houses a large APS-C sensor with approx. 24.3 effective megapixels for incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Its high resolving power adopts the same gapless on-chip lens structure as the α7R and features the latest-generation RGB color filter and other cutting-edge device technologies developed by Sony, the number 1 manufacturer of image sensors. The α77II’s image sensor exhibits approximately 20% higher sensitivity and lower noise levels compared to the α77 throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25,600.

Advanced BIONZ X image processing

The α77II is equipped with the same BIONZ X image processing engine as on the top-of-the-line full-frame models—α7 and α7R. This engine achieves approximately three times the processing speed of previous BIONZ and features all the latest image processing technologies, which are optimized for this model. The result is astonishingly high-speed processing capabilities as well as faithfully reproduced textures and amazing definition.

Clean Low Light Images with Low Noise and Area-Specific Noise Reduction

The α77II has a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25,600 for faster shutter speeds and low-light shooting situations. Combined with detail reproduction technology, area-specific noise reduction effectively suppresses noise and realize high-sensitivity images resulting in fine details and less grain from corner to corner.

Instant Sharing via Smartphone with Build-in Wi-Fi and NFC

Connectivity with smartphones has been simplified with Wi-Fi and NFC control for one-touch sharing. Simply tap the camera to another NFC-enabled device like a tablet or smartphone and photos are transferred with just one touch. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control, the camera’s shutter can be conveniently controlled by your smartphone’s touchscreen.

Additional Features

Diffraction-Reducing Technology

Diffraction-reducing technology maximizes the optical performance of lenses and produces finer details when shooting with a small aperture setting. Optimal filter processing—that best matches the f-number—is applied to correct image points that are blurred, preventing diffraction effects that become an issue when shooting with a deep depth of field and high pixel count. You can therefore depend on finely detailed images even when shooting with a small aperture setting.

Professional Rugged, Weather-Resistant Magnesium Alloy Body

The α77II is a high-quality, high-precision shooting tool built for the real world with a rugged magnesium alloy body that combines high strength with light weight. Sealing around the main buttons, dials, ports and doors are weather-resistant with a double-layered structure that enhances sealing effectiveness at all camera body openings including the media compartment and terminal area. The same high-level resistance to dust and moisture is maintained even when the camera is mounted with the 16-50mm F2.8 (SAL1650) zoom lens, VG-C77AM vertical shooting grip or HVL-F60M flash.

Full-Time LiveView in LCD or EVF

You can use both the LCD monitor and OLED Electronic Viewfinder for composing shots in LiveView. Both provide a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays

Detail reproduction technology; enhances fine details

Strong outlines a common characteristic of digital images, are minimized as much as possible to achieve finely detailed images with a natural three-dimensional appearance and naturally depicts subjects as seen by human vision. This increases the ability to depict detailed textures and brings photography another step closer to creating totally realistic, high-quality images.

Exceptions EVF - XGA OLED Tru-Finder

There’s never been anything quite like the OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder. For size, speed and brightness even after sunset, this is a gem. It begins with 2,359,296 dots for amazing resolution and high contrast ratio for incredible depth and shows 100% frame coverage. OLED reduces motion blur to a bare minimum. You can also see the results of camera adjustments in real time with superb color and detail, including the ability to display the effects of various camera settings, the use of MF Assist and a peaking function for fine-tuning the focus.

Every Lens is Stabilized

The α77II incorporates sensor shift technology called SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization. This means every lens you use—from the widest angle to longest telephoto—Is corrected for camera shake and reduces blur, resulting in crisp and sharp images.

Full HD Movie 1080/60p/60i/24p and Clean Output via HDMI

Take full control when you shoot HD movies and enjoy the full expressive potential of Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Manual (P/A/S/M) control in HD movie mode.

The A77II is a solid upgrade to its predecessor (which was no slouch) with a number of solid functional improvements from the previous generation Alpha 77/65 models. These include a better sensor, a deeper operating system, a much better autofocus system, a better JPEG engine from a better central processor, and several other tweaks. Sony really did their homework on this upgrade to the A77, and they have done an excellent job squeezing at least another full f-stop or more out of the sensor relative to its predecessor - at least in JPEGs (but see the - typically - contentious debate in the comments section over this question of how much low light functioning has been improved). I wouldn’t be surprised if the excellent Toshiba sensor in the Nikon 7100/5300 was their design target. This means that the A77ii is now only ~ 0.7-1.5 f-stops below the Sony full frame 24 megapixel sensor (in the Sony A99 and Nikon 600/610), instead of its previous ~ 2+ stop disadvantage (the 610 being almost a full stop less noisy than the A99 presumably due to the effects of putting PD on chip as well as the SLT mirror). The A77II is perhaps just under 3 stops below the phenomenal Sony A7S. While that sounds like a lot, read on to see why this number can be misleading if taken too literally (and is also effectively reduced by several technologies in the A77II). The short form of a long story on noise (discussed in detail below and in the comments sections) is that DxO numbers on noise (treated as canonical by many) aren’t the last word, and are only one (albeit valuable) metric on this important issue.

For those not familiar with the difference between Sony’s approach to SLR technology vs.

I'm going to keep this review short because, if you're seriously looking at buying an $1,800 camera, you already have a pretty good idea of what you want and are probably just reading reviews for moral support before you hit the "purchase" button! That said, I am extremely happy with the performance of my new A77ii. I have had the camera for almost a month and have shot several sessions with it including senior portraits, graduations, and a family event. The results have been exceptional and the camera is a joy to shoot with. Pros include, nearly instant (and accurate) auto-focus, seemingly endless buffer capacity, exceptional image quality, and vastly improved high ISO performance. All I can say about the EVF is WOW! It is brilliant and silky smooth! Battery life has been surprisingly good. My first battery charge lasted for 1,300 shots and I was down to about 30% capacity. I honestly have no complaints so far, simply a fantastic camera IMHO.

Because I’m already (heavily) invested in Minolta lenses, Sony was the obvious choice for me when it came time for digital. OK, on to the Sony Alpha 77 mkII -> It feels natural in my hands and is intuitive to operate. This is what I would call a transparent camera; that is to say, operating the camera doesn’t get between me and my photography. The OLED viewfinder does NOT look digital to me. In fact, the viewfinder is as sharp and as clear as an SLR optical viewfinder. One thing about the OLED that hasn’t been brought up is that the viewfinder remains bright and clear even when the room is somewhat dark (within reason, this isn’t night-vision equipment). If I had to choose between an optical viewfinder and the Sony OLED, I’d take the OLED hands down…….. yeah, I’m surprised too. I didn’t expect it to be this good.

There are loads of options on this camera (way more than I will ever use) and having 3 user programmable memory positions is the icing on the cake. You can ‘program’ each of the 3 memories to shoot different aspect ratios, HDR, or pretty much anything you want. So when you’re in the field, there’s no need to fiddle about with menus and buttons – just call up one of your programmed memories. I’m assuming that you pre-programmed the memories (easy to do) to coincide with what you were expecting to shoot that day.

IMHO, with a quality lens (Minolta “G” series, Zeiss) the 77 mkii is capable of absolutely stunning images. Using my Tokina ATX-Pro ii f2.6 (not a typo) the results have been way above what I expected. Technically film still holds an advantage over digital in terms of resolution and exposure latitude, but my experience with the 77 mkii is that its images are very close (as in; very close) to that of 35mm film.

Got this camera and the autofocus is excellent and the high iso is well improved. The iso is right up there with the d7100. I am a owner of the original a77 and this is quite an update. The only thing I can not stand is that they got rid of the autofocus assist lamp. It is now built into the on board flash only. You can not use it in low light without the flash and when it fires to focus several times it blinds the person whose picture you are taking. Who ever thought of this should lose his job. That big red beam and the original was fantastic. You can still use an external flash with the beam.
