Summary: I'm a total convert of SLT tech. So many people moan about the light loss to the pellicle mirror, but for a measly 1/3 stop of light, you gain so many next-level benefits. I've been having more fun with photography than ever since the A55 came out, and the A77 is better still.
Pros: - Seamless viewfinder/live view experience - When AF works just as well in live view as it does in the viewfinder, and you can switch between them seamlessly, it really takes the photography experience to the next level. Add the very flexible articulating screen of the A77, and it goes further st...
Cons: - Buffer size - Definitely too small, even with the fastest SDHC card available (Sandisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s) it still fills up in just over 1 second at 12 FPS., - v1.04 firmware - This isn't an issue now since they fixed most of the problems in v1.05, but the firmware they released this camera wi...
Summary: Enough has been said about this camera, so I'll keep it brief. Most of the issues people have with this camera might exist, but they aren't problems. The EVF does have too much contrast and loses detail in the shadows...but it shows you actual exposure performance. It's a fair trade in my book.

Summary: Over the years I have been a loyal Sony DSLR camera owner and avid user. Other owners have given great detailed technical reviews so I will not be repetitive. I own the Sony Alpha A330 10.2 MP Digital SLR Camera with Super SteadyShot INSIDE Image Stabilization (Body) Sony a330 and the Sony Alpha...
Summary: This camera gives fabulous results if you read the manual and great results if you just pick it up and set it on automatic. This camera also takes the best B&W photos I have seen taken with a digital camera. It also has an interesting feature allowing a one color bias while doing B&W.
Summary: I have bought this camera from sunset electronics and this was a Very Bad experience as this was not brand new but used before with missing stickers, tags and having some dust in hidden corners with a very tiny scratch on the LCD display.
Summary: The Sony A77 is an excellent DSLR camera at a reasonable price considering all the features and specifications. Having always used Nikon cameras, I was at first somewhat skeptical of the Sony translucent technology but after reading the reviews , I was convinced that this A77 was in a class by...
Excerpt: With this product, competing companies making cameras really have to make an effort to beat this one. The camera itself offers a extrardinary beauty in its picture and really has a firm grasp in your hands.
Pros: Firm Grisp, Light, Easily Controlled, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I wasn't prepared to like this camera as much as I do. As a confirmed Canon-lover (7D with a couple of 'L' lenses), I really didn't think Sony could bring much to the party. I've rarely been so happy to be wrong.
