Has no equal until 7x the price

joe m., Newegg
7 May 2013
  • Summary: I considered going to a full frame camera like the Canon 5D3 (6fps) 3.8x as much, but really for the money nothing comes close, especially for action. Some have said low light performance can be noisy but use a quality f2.8 lens and you won't be disappointed.
  • Pros: I shoot sports, tennis events and at 8-12 frames a second, this camera has no competition until you get to the Canon 1dx at $7k.
  • Cons: limited lens selection but 2 I can suggest are great. Tamron 18-200 3,5-5.6, is inexpensive,compact and does a great job and Sony's own 70-200 f2.8 is pricey but rivals any Canon or Nikor lens and still costs less.

Incredible pictures. Great for beginners

  • Summary: I love this camera even though it didnt come with a case or the 150 mm lens. The pictures are amazing and it is very stable in a wavering hand.
  • Pros: The default lens is picture perfect. Read the manual
  • Cons: A bit expensive for only having the stock lens

Just like the specs said...and more

  • Summary: I did a lot of homework on this and other comparable cameras. I chose this one because of the internal stabilizer (versus in the lens) and i'm really happy with the camera in all ways. Delivery was fast.

An Excellent Tool For The Proud "Prosumer" Set

Oldmanriver, ABT Electronics
17 April 2013
  • Summary: I do not earn a living with my camera, but I am motivated to create the highest quality images that often rival local professionals. My budgetary emphasis always explores the question regarding which sought-after photography equipment delivers the most bang for the buck. The A77 and the Alpha system components allow me to achieve that goal as a labor of love within a tolerable price range.

NICE CAMERA

busseja, Adorama
14 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Use mostly for wildlife in central america where they hide in the trees. The auto focus is very good and the indicators don't clutter the screen like the d800 and d600 but I mostly use manual focus. Focus aids like the fringing is fantastic especially in the jungle. Even when your eyes are fogged up or blurry you can tell exactly what is in focus. LOVE IT!!! Low light is not as good as others but not bad either. they even have multi exposure noise reduction for stills.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Short Battery Life

Sony Alpha SLT-A77 review by Beachrider

Beachrider, slrgear.com
14 April 2013
  • Summary: Improvement have continued as new firmware comes out. Camera has the same CDAF function as A99. With the price now dropping, there is no reason for A700 users to wait anymore.
  • Pros: Focus is verry good. New firmware adds nice stuff. Wireless flash and other stuff from A700 & other 7-series. Movie functions are great. Price is now strong.
  • Cons: Still heavy

In some aspects that's the best camera in the market

Ilya, Amazon
8 April 2013
  • Summary: PROS: 12 fps 24Mpix - still the best on the market; 60p full HD - I think still best on the market; In the body image stabilizer - works really fine, I sometimes manage to take pixel-sharp shots at 1/8 sec at f=40 mm (60mm equivalent!) or so. Electronic viewfinder - it is just a huge advantage in many aspects - you can shoot into the sun without burning your eyes; you can use the manual focus lenses since in manual focus it has special illumination of the in-focus...

User Review

Frustrated Writer, DP Review
21 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I upgraded from SLT-A55 which I had for almost a year before getting the SLT-A77V in June 2012. Carrying over all the familiarity from the A55, meant that the learning curve wasn't too steep. Gary Friedman's A65/A77 book was a very valuable purchase and helped greatly in making the best use of all the new features and functions.

LCD Protection for a Reasonable Price

Frank the Alligator Guy, Adorama
12 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Since I do a lot of outdoor photography in the Everglades, sunscreen, mosquito repellant and sweat always end up on the LCD. This protector added another layer of insurance to keep the screen shielded.
  • Pros: Easy to Use
