Overview

The Sony a99 II is a well-equipped, ergonomic full-frame translucent mirror DSLR camera that every photography enthusiast would love to have. It features a 42 MP Full-Frame Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor, which works in conjunction with the BIONZ X processor for taking life-like pictures and videos. The 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization compensates for about 4.5 stops and 5 types of camera shake that are encountered during hand-held shooting so that you can take still images and videos without any blur. The 79-point Hybrid Phase Detection AF system, with the help of Translucent Mirror Technology from Sony, lets you focus on your subjects automatically at a high rate of speed and precision. Use the inbuilt WiFi, NFC, and Bluetooth connectivity facilities for sharing captured content with similarly-compatible devices, as well as at social networking and cloud websites.

Optics and Focus

The a99 II from Sony is compatible with a variety of Sony Alpha and Minolta lenses that offer amazing apertures and focal lengths. Use the 79-point Hybrid Phase Detection AF system, which features Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology, for focusing on your subjects in a fast and precise manner. The ISO sensitivity ranges between 50 and 102,400, whereas the shutter operates at a maximum speed of 1/8000th of a second. The 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization makes it easy to take blur-free videos and still images by compensating for around 4.5 stops and 5 types of camera shake generally encountered during hand-held shooting. The Metering Methods, along with the Exposure and White Balance modes, are useful for a variety of photography situations.

Sensor and Screen

This camera is equipped with a 42 MP Full-Frame Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor that enables you to shoot true-to-life photos and videos. The 3-inch tiltable rear LCD screen provides a resolution of up to 1,228,800 dots for adjusting settings, composing images, and reviewing your captured pictures and videos with immense clarity. It tilts up and down at angles of 134° and 180°, as well as rotates clockwise and anticlockwise at angles of up to 180° and 90°, respectively. Use the 0.5-inch 2.36 M-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder for viewing your subjects conveniently even under the bright sunlight.

Image and Video

The Sony a99 II not only captures RAW and JPEG photos at its highest resolution of 7952 x 5304 pixels but also records 4K UHD videos at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels at 30 fps in the XAVC S format. The BIONZ X Processor renders high-quality videos and pictures with excellent performance even in low-light conditions. You can shoot images continuously at a burst rate of up to 12 fps. Record slow-motion Full HD videos anywhere between 1 to 120 fps with the help of the camera’s S&Q mode. Use the Custom Color and S-Log3 Gamma profiles to avail up to a 1300% wider dynamic range for those smoother color and tonal gradations, as well as enhanced clarity and sensitivity in mid-tones and shadows.

Other Features

The built-in NFC, WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity options allow you to share captured content on various social networking and cloud websites, as well as with similarly-compatible devices. The ergonomic design offers every user with an intuitive user experience. Constructed of magnesium alloy, this camera is lightweight yet durable. Furthermore, this camera runs on a long-lasting NP-FM500H rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery pack.
