Reasons For

1 Reason For
670.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s Edit
The Canon EOS 7D Mark II takes 670.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s, however the Sony Alpha A77 only takes 480.00 battery life (CIPA standard)s. Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

8 Reasons For
4.1MP higher megapixel Edit
The Sony Alpha A77 is a 24.3MP digital camera. That's 4.1MP higher than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (24.3MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Image stabilizer Edit
The Sony Alpha A77 has an image stabilizer, however the Canon EOS 7D Mark II does not have an image stabilizer. Read more

Camera shake is a major cause of blurred images, especially with handheld photography or in low light situations where a slow shutter speed is required. Image stabiliser technology detects and corrects slight camera shakes.

Cameras with image stabiliser technology enable steady shooting at lower aperture, making them ideal for situations where the use of flash is not permitted or desired.

More total megapixels Edit
The Sony Alpha A77 is a 24.7MP digital camera. That's 3.8MP more than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (24.7MP).
69% higher ISO sensitivity (max) Edit
The Sony Alpha A77 has an ISO sensitivity (max) of 51,200. That's 35,200 higher than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (51,200).
Smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
Sony Alpha A77 is 50 minimum ISO speed. That's 50 smaller than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (50).
Higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Sony Alpha A77 is 1,228,800 pixels display resolution. That's 188,800 pixels higher than the Canon EOS 7D Mark II (1,228,800 pixels).
A lot lighter Edit
The Sony Alpha A77 has a weight of 647g, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is a 910g digital camera (263g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Near Field Communication (NFC) Edit
The Sony Alpha A77 supports near Field Communication (NFC), however the Canon EOS 7D Mark II does not support near Field Communication (NFC).

Reasons Against
