Sony Unveils the Alpha 99 Mk II at photokina 2016
Sony announced the launch of the Sony Alpha 99 Mk II, making it company’s new flagship Alpha camera. The camera has a 42.4 BSI MP full frame sensor that can capture at 12fps, tracking AF, hybrid detection AF, 399 AF points, 5 axis stabilisation and 4K movie without pixel reduction. With a new 4D FOCUS feature, the Sony Alpha 99 Mk II is especially targeted at professional photographers who majorly shoot sports and wildlife.
The hybrid phase AF detection uses a 79 point dedicated phase AF focal plane sensor with 399 AF points overall. The cross point system claims to deliver incredibly precise autofocus performance and advanced subject tracking of any moving objects right across the image, at high speed. While working with the Exmor R technology and the Bionz X processor, Sony promises to provide the best image quality out there. The back illuminated sensor can shoot up to ISO 102,400 and uses copper to read faster, which may lead to enhanced overall performance of the camera.
Apart from that, the camera also includes dual SD card slots, front multi-controller, and a 3-axis tiltable LCD. The Sony Alpha 99 Mk II retails for 3600 Euros (approx. Rs. 2,70,000) and will be available from November 2016.Tags: 4D focus, 4k video, Alpha 99 II, Bionz X processor, Exmor R technology, full frame, Hybrid Detection, photokina 2016, Product release, Sony Alpha 99 II, Sony Camera
