Many awesome features but fails in key areas

  • Excerpt: First let me say, I wanted to love this camera so much! It takes some really great pictures of landscapes (still pics are awesome) but where it falls down is indoor sports : ( The buffer is way too small for sports - ripping off 15 pictures at 5fps (cont Hi), then waiting 8 - 10 seconds for the buffer to clear is awful as you miss so much action -- like my daughter's gymnastics routine.

poor focusing with rapid sequence shooting.

  • Summary: Extremely poor focus performance when doing rapid sequence shooting.Routine to have 1 of 6 focused shots.So many wasted shots.No use of rapid sequence shooting with this camera .They would have been better off with 1 shot / second. They cannot manage more then this. Using carl zeiss f1.4 85 mm .As classy as a lens can get.But Very good twilight 6 shot effect.

Comes down to one thing...

Photoman13, Adorama
18 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a pro that has held on since the Minolta days in hopes that Sony would someday bring the goods. It still comes down to one thing for me...low light/high iso performance. Sony reps (and their advertising) told me that the A77 had great low light performance and it is actually worse than my A580. Just atrocious. If this camera doesn't perform, they just lost another dedicated user. Fingers crossed.
  • Pros: We'll see

  • Excerpt: Тестил не свой, сам такой не куплю. Сравнивал с А900.
  • Pros: Снимает видео. Имеем тушку два в одном для полнокадровых объективов sony-minolta. Хороший вариант для репортажной съемки и свадеб, если не принимать во внимание ресурс затвора.
  • Cons: Все таки имеем небольшой кроп 23.9х35.8. SLT это не классическая зеркалка. Автофокус от А77 однозначно хуже чем в A900. Опять же снимает видео. Цена высока для аппарата такого класса.

  • Excerpt: Стоит покупать тем, кто хочет зарабатывать на свадьбах съемкой видео. Хотя это есть и у конкурентов.
  • Pros: Матрица.
  • Cons: Электронный видоискатель включается не сразу, что мешает сути репортажной фотографии. Глаза от него за день работы устают значительно. Сырая штука. Требуется гораздо больше аккумуляторов на день работы, что серьезная сумма. Автофокус так толком и не стал "спортивным". Дизайн - сомнителен. Внезапно сменили крепление для вспышки.
