Sony announces full-frame Alpha-mount A99II to




Sony has added a new member to its family of Alpha SLR cameras with semi-transparent mirror, the α99 II. The camera has a full frame Exmor R CMOS sensor with 42.4-megapixel. That whole is processed by a BIONZ X image processor.

The α99 II has no low-pass filter and an autofocus system that uses phase detection hybrid. This system combines off 79 points including 15 cross-sensitivity with 399 points off integrated on the image sensor. The previous version that Sony released and demonstrated at Photokina 2012 from the α99 had a total of 121 off points, including 11 cross sensitive. The advantage of the hybrid phase detection system is that the distance information without intermission, either all the time, can be passed. Thus, it is possible also to keep constant in focus moving subjects at high speed, said Sony. Besides the upgraded system off the camera also has a new five-axis stabilization system.
