Fantastic Auto Focus

Jakub, B&H Photo
20 December 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a replacement for my Sony A550. There is a dramatic improvement in image quality, resolution, contrast and true to life colors in standard mode. I have only played with the A77 for two weeks but so far I like everything about it except for low light/high ISO noise. I was not expecting it to match the Canon EOS 5D Mark III but I was hoping for better performance.
  • Pros: 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, Noisy With Long Exposures

  • Summary: Easily beats nikon and canon. Very functional for the average photographer and satisfies everything that a professional would need. Holds up well to travel as it came with us to Jamaica and did outstanding. Highly recommend it.

Great Intermediate Camera for Pros

19 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I got this mainly because I have a baby on the way. When comparing camera's I looked at Canon T4i, Nikon D7000, and Sony A65 and Sony A77. The great points of Sony A77 is that the viewfinder shows you the changes as you do them. In Nikon, and Canon I didn't see that. The video auto focuse makes clicking sounds of the lenses, but the 18-50mm is alot more quite than the older 18-200mm default lens.
  • Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light, Short Battery Life

Awesome!

  • Excerpt: I've only had the a77/16-50 for a week but thus far it lives up to its billings. I'm very pleased with the a77 recognizing its strengths and weaknesses. There are issues with high iso but I limit the range to 1600. The 16-50 is great too, would like the range to be a little longer but it is constant f/2.8.
  • Pros: 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

User Review

1 December 2012
  • Excerpt: After almost 1 year of using my A77 for my photography business, I am finally almost satisfied. It's impossible to satisfy a professional wedding or event photographer with a budget under $3000 for a DSLR, but sony has came close with speed and quality when paired with the proper G-Lenses. The only improvements I would like to see is a better external flash, WIFI and blue tooth options for event on site printing.

Fun & Great Camera

  • Summary: I am an old Minolta user and of course that led me to Sony and I have the alpha 100, 700, & 850. With my upgrade to the a77v all the outstanding features that come with making cameras into small computers open more creative avenues in making images. For the most part I cannot complain because this instrument is fun to use and creates great images. However I do have three bones to pick. This camera has only one card slot and that is a step down from the a700 and a850.

  • Summary: Love it. Loved my old Minolta and I think that Sony has improved on the old Maxxum design. And after 2500 shots, I still do!

NEW TECHNOLOGY

Amer Bedi, Amazon
3 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to shoot wedding video's because of it's superior focusing system. I shot several stills as well, and found that the images equalled or exceeded the quality of images shot with my Canon 5D MKII with L Series lenses. The only department this camera falls short in is it's limited capacity to shoot in low light. It will still focus very well in low light, but the images/video become very grainy.

Excellent Camera

Andrew S Pierovich, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: I chose this model over the A65 because Sony made the A77 weather resistant. Also I wanted 24 mps, an electronic viewfinder, and the 12fps among the various other features. Sony came through on this one. It's incredibly easy to use out of the box. I chose a Carl Zeiss 16-80mm lens over the "kit lens." The photos are razor sharp. Overall I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase.

Auto focus is a joke

Piniewoods, ABT Electronics
19 October 2012
  • Summary: The auto focus is a joke. 9 out of 10 times, when taking an action shot, the auto focus either can not lock on, or takes a shot that is out of focus. Have tried all of the settings, different techniques, everything to get results. Will save my money and buy a Cannon.
