  • 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...

Fell in love with the A99 then divorced!

  • Excerpt: I shoot wild life in various environments but the most demanding on the camera is in wooded areas at close to medium distance. This is where Sony's A99 really failed. The camera has some innovative engineering like peaking and EVF with beautiful menus.

Syncing issue

jc, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have been a faitfull Sony user for the past 11 years. I have the A100, A550, A55, A77, A850 and the A99. Sony needs to address this camera syncing with studio strobes. Very erratic with shutter speeds above 125.

poor focusing with rapid sequence shooting.

Fayyaz, Amazon

  • 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.

  • 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.

Pour le prix, la qualité n'est pas là

LoKan, Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: Compte tenu du prix important de la bestiole, j'aurais attendu une qualité de finition au moins équivalent a mon A99. Hélas, les boutons sont durs, le joystick est rigide, on retombe sur une qualité d'Alpha 77, hélas. Le plastique n'est pas non plus de la même couleur, ou de la même matière.
