Excerpt: I am a semi pro photographer and have recently purchased the Sony A77 SLT digital camera. I have been extremely please with its easy of use, accessing to the various controls and it speed and quietness. IF you are looking for a easy to use and professional camera, I highly recommend the Sony Alpha SLT A77 Digital Camera.
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
Summary: I purchased the a77 because of claims that not only was it fast focusing in live view (which it is) but that it is claimed that it has clear files in high ISO (which it does not) when shooting raw images anything above 1600 iso is really not good enough for comercial work, but I still love the camera , just have to use iso 800 or less
Excerpt: The A77 is a fun camera to own. I also own a Nikon D90 and D700. The A77 is fastest camera I've ever owned. The 24 pixel camera presents awesome photographs. The controls and menu are not as friendly as my Nikon's nor does the battery last as long. However, it has a wonderful panoramam and video presentation. I love the speed bursts of the camera but after a burst you have to readjust the focus on your image. I'm still learning to adjust to the camera.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light, Short Battery Life
Summary: My first SLR was a Minolta. I transition to my first Sony DSLR because all my Minolta equipment would fit on the Sony camera. I've owned the Sony A camera for about 7 years. I've always acheived wonderful results so when I decided to purchase a new DSLR I turned to Sony once again. This A77 is AWESOME. It is fast!!! The features just blows you away. It is a peice of computer software with a camera lens. There are so many setting and adjustments to the camera.
Excerpt: Sony has produced an amazing camera in the A77. The 12fps is blazingly fast and the picture quality is spot on. It does tent to get grainy in low light but the in camera flash works well to bring out the details.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Summary: Just a quick warning before you read, I am well educated in photography thanks to YouTube and flickr forums... :-) I will update this review as I go along but after this first picture outing I have come to the conclusion that I must be doing something wrong here cause I know this camera has to take better pictures then what i witnessed on my laptop today. Eee gads... 70% of the pics were out of focus and the rest that were in focus were overexposed terribly.
Excerpt: Some people might find the SLT-A77 Sony a little pricey but I can assure you it is worth every cent. Sony deserves a lot more credit for their professional level DSLR products. The A77 is easy to operate in even the most demanding situations and controls are naturally located and are easy to instinctively understand. I've shot Nikon for the past three years and don't know how I can pick it up again. The Sony is that good!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance
