First look with the Sony A77II and new XAVC-S codec.


Note on video from Cinema5d: Before you watch the video: I was attempting trying a new audio wireless device which unfortunately does not work well with this camera. The result is a distorted audio track. The camera it-self produces better sound then in this video.

Cinema5D (Click here) tested the Sony A77II with the new firmware upgrade which improves autofocus and adds XAVC-S codec:

The new Sony A77mII will not make loyal Canon or Nikon users to replace their camera with that one (unlike the case of the Sony A7s). Also, if you are looking for an easy way to use your Canon lenses, then Sony’s E-mount is the way to go. If you are in the market for a good APS-C photo camera that can shoot good quality video, then the Sony A77mII is a very valid option.

It’s certainly good news to see that Sony took care of current A77II owners and offered that major update. Hope they will keep doing that on all cameras just like Fuji does!

$300 off on the Sony A77II with grip at Amazon, Adorama and SonyStore.

This week SAR readers photos selection.

Sunset Crashers
We visited Shore Acres, near Coos Bay on the coast of Oregon the day after Thanksgiving to look at the Christmas light display, but arrived early enough to take in the sunset over the big waves first. I like the many tiny little lights, but this is so much better.
