Larry, B&H Photo

Very Impressive Camera!

RogerB, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Pros: Extremely fast, very sharp images, very cool features & picture effects. Cons: Would have liked a CF slot as well as SD, noise issues above 3200 iso. I have shot with an a700 for almost 5 years and was very skeptical when the a77 was announced in August as it's replacement. My skepticism was based on 3 things: 1) the image quality of 24mps on a "C" sensor (lots of mps on a small sensor); 2) the quality of the OLED viewfinder; 3) the buffers ability to keep up with...

NEW TECHNOLOGY

Amer Bedi, Amazon
17 April 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.

REVIEW of the new SONY SLT-A77|SONY 16-50 2.8 LENS

Michael G. Yanko, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Update 4-23-14 Haven't updated in a while so here we go! We are now on bodies number 15 and 16 of these fabulous cameras. We shoot a lot of photos so we change out bodies every 3-4 months so we don't run the shutter count too high and ruin the resale. We shoot 250,000-300,000 photos a year currently. Sony has fixed the bug that made me have to keep rebooting my first camera, as a matter of fact we've had zero camera problems since the first 3-4 bodies.

The EVF Will Change The Way You Use Your Camera (For The Better)

Rob, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: My rating reflects the camera as a whole. I bought it, use it and love it, but I'm going to take a different approach here and review one aspect of this camera: the viewfinder. Most of the professional reviews I've found for the Sony a77 (dpreview, etc) are entirely missing the point. The electronic viewfinder alone is reason enough to consider this camera a step up from a traditional DSLR, even if the DSLR you were comparing an a77 with had identical specs.

Exceeded expectations, but not perfect

Kei Tsubasa, B&H Photo
15 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Moved from Sony DSLR-a500 (I wont bore you with the details you've likely read more then enough times) I'm not really a pro, semi-pro at best. I'm a cosplay photographer and I've been waiting for this camera before it was announced, I thought this when I held the a55 and was too uncomfortable. Not only does the a77 fit my hands better, but the extra(customization) buttons and two dials is a great addition.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Noisy At High ISO, Short Battery Life

How refreshing can you get?

C. Hannam "Cynical one!", Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: What a stunning camera this A77 is. Forget the dated Canons and Nikons(good though many are); tomorrow is here right now! Of course, if you are already bogged down with another manufacturer's lenses and kit, you'll almost certainly disagree.......we understand and sympathise! Let us look at a few facts and leave nefarious comment to the bitter and twisted. 1. This camera does not have a big flappy mirror assembly....thank you,God..

This is a great camera

a4w, Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: All I can say is wow.... The resolution with the 16-50 f2.8 is outstanding. The EVF is a joy to use, the camera handles very well and is easy to use. I love the fact that what you see with the EVF is what you get on the photo. So far, of the couple of thousand shots - its performance is great... Love the focus peaking (shows you what is in focus with a hi-light color) - its great for tweaking the focus.

WINNING!

David L. Griffin, Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: I made the switch from Canon to Sony about five years ago with the release of the Sony a350. Wanting to move to a more feature rich DSLR I did extensive research and liked what I saw regarding Sony and the direction they were going. After acquiring Konica Minolta's photography technology, it didn't take long for Sony to start making an impact. They seemed to be on the cutting edge of research and DSLR technology (Sony released the 1st really useful Live View technology).
