Well done Sony!

Ric, B&H Photo
3 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I went from shooting strictly manual medium format to full auto 35mm 20 years ago when my son was born. I'm a serious amateur photographer and electronics engineer, so I was sold on the Minolta 7xi. At the time, it was the worlds smartest camera. I have since invested heavily in lenses, flash systems and other gear. Migrated to a pair of 9xi's before I went digital with a couple of Konica/Minolta 7Ds.<br />My last 7D died and forced me into the Sony realm.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD

  • 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.

Good body

  • Excerpt: After finally retiring my old Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D, I found this to be a good equivalent. I like the separate rotary dials for shutter speed and aperture, dedicated ISO button, and depth of field checker button. For the same cost of what I paid for my old 7D 9 years ago, the advancement in camera technology gives you far more for your money.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Viewfinder

Buy this Camera!!

  • Summary: I also have the original Sony Alpha DSLR. I do a lot of wildlife photography and one of the things that I always wished that I could improve was the autofocus speed. My new A77 took care of that problem. This thing is blazingly fast. With the tracking focus, I can easily keep up with the Bald Eagles now!!

  • Excerpt: Great image quality in full resolution RAW, even better image quality/detail in "S" JPG settings (3008 x ????). Excellent lens that produces eye pleasing bokeh and great detail/contrast. I hated the camera, but miss the lens. In the end, it is the images that stay with us. But the A77 was just too much of a pain to use for my shooting style which is spontaneous and in very imperfect conditions.

Very Nice Semi-Pro Enthusiast DSLR

TopHeadphones99, ABT Electronics
8 March 2013
  • Summary: This is my first time ever using a DSLR and I wasn't expecting this one to be that good. Images you get from this camera are excellent. Sharpness and depth of field are excellent. Unfortunately, you lose some light with the translucent mirror because the mirror bounces some of the light upwards and there is not much going to the sensor. I did not find it that big of a deal. Also, the A77 gives reasonable ISO performance up to 6400.

Why choose the Sony A77VM 18-135

BillsCameraOpinions, ABT Electronics
4 March 2013
  • Summary: As an enthusiast amateur level, and now retired, I'm doing my best to try and capture that elusive so-called perfect photograph - which has not yet happened of course. As the owner of Canon, Nikon, and Sony, P&amp;S, and DSLR products I've been very impressed with Sony's HX9V, HX200V, Alpha 55 products. The A77VM is a recent addition after deliberating about it for over a year.

Awesome!!! Tremendous Camera!

Michael, B&H Photo
4 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Since retiring in 2005 I have taken up nature photography. The Sony 707 was the first digital camera I ever purchased, so I have had some experience with a Sony product. What a great camera that was and the camera that turned me on to digital photography. <br />Since then I have purchased a Fuji S2Pro, Nikon D300 and now the Sony A77. I did a good bit of research on other cameras offered by Nikon and Canon before I decided to purchase the Sony A77.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD

Full Function Digital Cam. The Sony A77.

Nivek, ABT Electronics
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I love that Sony has made this type of Digital camera. Do I miss a glass view finder? sure, but what they did hear was make a fine useful tool. Traditional no, but Digital is not either, so I say what's the Beef. Get a A77 if you think, that you want the best, true experience to shooting a digital image with little fuss, or be fussy and have all the tweaks at your exposure. If there is ever a manual camera to have it's this one.
