Summary: We upgrade from A330 to A77 and was big difference in quality and all looks more pro + all lens work as well on A77 Images are massive 4000 to 6000 of size jpg The 16-50 lens with A77 is brilliant as well battery keep very long time and all case is well done and can feel how good is make Its perfect upgrade from lowers of sony Dslrs
Summary: The Sony SLTA77V is a very impressive camera. The focussing speed is incredible and the electonic viewfinder makes getting your shots just right a very simple task. The look and feel of the camera are of a good quality and despuite the initial outlay, I feel it will represent good value for money in the long run. It is still very early days, but I am very impressed with the camera.
Summary: I know i'll get a lot of stick for the "subject" of my review, but I used both & can confidently say that for me the A77 is far better. The focusing and speed of the camera is excellent, as is the quality of the image. It's not in the same league as say the Canon MKII for noise control, but then it isnt a full frame camera. The EVF is as most people will probably say, a matter of choice, but for me it works - period.
Summary: Been waiting to get hold of one of those for a while now. Very pleased that i did, definitely the right choise for my first DSLR/SLT. Even though it is expensive- i must say it's well worth it. Still have a lot of options and capabilietes to discover and test out in practise, but from overall that i've seen so far, it is just outstanding regarding what you can achieve with this camera.
Summary: I was aprehensive about the EVF before I bought it, but after using for several weeks it is brilliant. Much brighter than an OVF and being able to change ANY setting with it up to your eye is great. I now seldom use the rear screen atall! Overall this is a simply superb camera and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.
Summary: Before purchasing the A77 I owned an A200 and still own an A700, as well as numerous Minolta film cameras which share the same lens mount. This is a very good camera. Focussing is fast and accurate, it's speed blistering, as well as many other useful features such as GPS, sweep panorama and face recognition etc. However, it does take some time to adjust to the EVF.
Summary: Was a Minolta fan and had their cameras so when they stopped making them and transferred their expertise and technical spec to Sony went for them have had 3 Sonys the a100, a350, a55 and now the a77 and am so pleased with it. Heavier than the a55 but that is to the good as it feels like a real camera. Already had 2 x sony lenses so kept to Sony and am still very impressed.
Summary: I have been into photography for over thirty years and for twenty years of it I used Nikon cameras. Three years ago I bought a A350 and found out how good and innovative they are. I sold my A350 and made mind up for a A77 as I wanted to do a bit of video recording too. It wasn't a bad choice at all, over the last four months I have added two more lenses (Sigma 18-200 and Tamron 24-75) and the HVL-F58AM flash gun.
Summary: A bit of background. I have been seriously into photography for around 6 years now. I love Canon, always have. I started with a 350D and moved to a 50D but with the imminent arrival of my first child I felt an upgrade was justified. The obvious choice was the 7D - my dad has one and I like it a lot.
Summary: My first photos on this camera were portraits taken with a flash indoors at home in the evening, as the weather had been wet and cloudy all day. I was stunned by the detail in the facial features like hair, eyelashes and cracks on the lips etc. The colours were a little purply, but I adjusted them more to my taste in Lightroom.
