Sony A99 II vs Nikon D750

Image quality– High-resolution image, minimized noise, and wide dynamic range will be the first priority for Sony A99 II camera. With full-frame 42.4-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor Sony A99 II is giving you exactly what you want. On the other side, Nikon D750 employs only 24MP resolution, however, it also integrates full frame sensor.

AF system– Above all, the AF system of Sony A99 II is just unmatched. With 399-Plane dedicated AF points and 79-pahse AF points the camera will provide high precision focusing and rich detection. Moreover, with 79-point Hybrid Cross AF, Sony A99 II will effectively capture the subjects (fast and accurate).

Comparatively, the AF system of Nikon D750 is not so robust, however, it also utilizes both contrast detect sensor as well as phase detect sensor for accurate and fast focusing of the subjects, but its 51-point AF system with 15 cross-type sensors is looking modest infront of Sony A99 II.

ISO– Sony A99 II will be very valuable camera for lowlight since the camera offers an expandable ISO range of 102400. In general, photographers want high resolution images with minimum noise in those shooting conditions where light is very fade means when the photographers use the highest ISO. But, the photographers who normally shoot at lowlight must get Sony A99 II. On the other side, Nikon D750 has the expandable ISO upto 51200, which is lower than that of Sony A99 II.

Shutter speed– The pro-sports photographers must like Sony A99 II’s incredible faster shutter speed of 1/8000 seconds, which clearly means that your camera will be able to freeze the high-speed movement of the subjects—and moreover— your camera will not miss any action of the desire subjects. However, the highest shutter speed of Nikon D750 is 1/4000 sec, comparatively lesser than Sony A99 II.

Image stabilization– 5-axis I.S mechanism has been incorporated into the core of Sony A99 II, enabling the users of A99 II will be able to acquire crisp and blur-free images and videos. Maximum time we see when we zoom in or out the camera to take the shots of distance subjects, we have to face blur issue into the subjects that is due to the negative impact of camera shakes. But, Sony A99 II with its Optical 5-axis image stabilization will give you nearly shake-free clarity in stills and movies, even during lowlight shooting. Unfortunately, Nikon D750 doesn’t incorporate 5-axis I.S.

Continuous shooting drive– The sports photographers and movie-makers who want to attain consistently high performance in almost every shooting situation must go with Sony A99 II, since the camera offers 12fps of continuous shooting speed, ensuring that fast actions of the desire subjects can be captured easily, even at full resolution. On the other side, the Nikon D750 offers continuous frame rates of 6.5fps, probably insufficient for capturing faster moving subjects.

Video– Here also, Sony A99 II conquers the area. Sensor of Sony A99 II features full-frame 4K format and capture stunning high resolution when shooting in Super 35 mm size frame due to full pixel readout without pixel binning. On the other hand, the users of Nikon D750 have to satisfy with full HD, 1080p @60fps only.

Display– The Nikon D750 integrates 3.2-inch tilting Vari-angle LCD for exposures, easier color grading in post and record at low and high angles.

Shots– Sony A99 II won’t allow you to take more than 490 shots at a time, whereas you can take around 1230 maximum shots a time by Nikon D750.

Verdict- Sony A99 II is obviously the winner of this specifications comparison, so Sony A99 II will be the camera that gives you faster and advanced AF system, shutter speed and the best thing is 4K video— Just astounding!
