The ISO range of ISO 100-12,800 (expandable to ISO 50-16,000) allows low noise and ultimate low-light and high-speed performance. The Sony Alpha 77 has SteadyShot inside stabilization which reduces blur by compensating for camera shake. The built-in SteadyShot Inside image stabilization works with all A Mount lenses (including macro and wide-aperture standard zoom) to reduce camera shake blur with every, this allows shooting in lower light without sacrificing image quality.
The Translucent Mirror Technology allows use of a highly responsive Phase Detection Autofocus system to operate continuously without viewfinder interruption. 19 sensors with 11 cross sensors maximize precision for both vertical and horizontal subjects. This autofocus system works no matter what mode you're using, even HD Movie and Live View. The system also utilizes Object Tracking AF which locks onto a specified object and maintains focus even as the subject moves. The Sony Alpha 77 allows you to switch the focus modes between Single-servo AF (S), Continuous-Servo AF (C), Manual Focus (M).
