NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 01, 2014) - B&H Photo is pleased to announce the release of the new Sony α77II (Alpha 77 Mark II) Translucent Mirror DSLR Camera equipped with the same BIONZ X image-processing engine as on the top-of-the-line full-frame models -- α7 and α7R cameras. This engine achieves approximately three times the processing speed of previous BIONZ, and features all the latest image-processing technologies, which are optimized for this model. The result is astonishingly high-speed processing capabilities, as well as faithfully reproduced textures and amazing definition.
The Sony α77II has the world's fastest continuous shooting speed in its class -- up to 12 frames per second at full resolution. Equipped with a 79-point AF sensor and advanced auto focus tracking technology, you never have to miss a moment. The α77II outperforms even more expensive rivals with continuous auto focus and auto exposure when shooting at 12fps at full 24.3MP resolution, and can capture up to 60 frames in a single burst when in JPEG fine setting.
The α77II camera is equipped with a newly-developed phase detection auto focus system, featuring wide coverage 79 AF points. Fifteen of the AF points are cross-type, and placed in the most-frequently-used central area of the sensor. This helps the α77II achieve accurate focusing even with horizontally striped subjects, which line-type AF points typically find challenging. The new AF system also performs well in low-light conditions -- as low as EV -2 (ISO 100), which is similar to a moonlit night under which objects are difficult to see even with the naked eye. The new AF algorithm instantly recognizes and reliably tracks the desired subject.
Strong outlines -- a common characteristic of digital images -- are minimized with the α77II as much as possible, to achieve finely-detailed images with a natural three-dimensional appearance, naturally depicting subjects as seen by human vision. This increases the ability to depict detailed textures, and brings photography another step closer to creating totally realistic, high-quality images.
The Sony α77II is a high-quality, high-precision shooting tool built for the real world, with a rugged magnesium alloy body that combines high strength with light weight. Sealing around the main buttons, dials, ports and doors are weather-resistant, with a double-layered structure that enhances sealing effectiveness at all camera body openings including the media compartment and terminal area. The same high-level resistance to dust and moisture is maintained even when the camera is mounted with the 16-50mm F2.8 (SAL1650) zoom lens. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1047081-REG/sony_ilca77m2q_alpha_a77_ii_dslr.html
Connectivity with smartphones has been simplified with Wi-Fi and NFC control for one-touch sharing. Simply tap the α77II DSLR camera to another NFC-enabled device like a tablet or smartphone, and photos are transferred with just one touch. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control, the camera's shutter can be conveniently controlled by your smartphone's touchscreen.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
