Summary: Mine need a micro adjustment out of the box to fine tune it to so it focused perfectly with my Sony 70-400mm lens. But thats a relativly simple process. After that I was one happy photographer! there is a lot to learn becaus eit has so many features. Ive owned many Sony cameras. You can see my Sony photos on my site... Feltonphoto. com . Sony has the money to develop ground breaking cameras like this while other companies don't. And talk about quality.
Summary: Before I bought this camera, I had a A390 DSLR and a Nex-5 Mirrorless Interchangable from Sony. Once I got my hands on the A77 and realized the features it has, I realized I could sell both the A390 and Nex-5. Sure, I'll miss the portability of the Nex-5, but sometimes you have to trade in your Miata for a Land Rover. The electronic viewfinder is truly amazing.
Summary: I was waiting for this camera since it was announced and i have it finally.I am totally speechless and i can say that the money was worth it.I bought it with the SAL1650 and the quality of the images are fantastic.My first camera was Sony Alpha a230 and the transition to a77 is huge.I have always given my credit to Sony Alpha and i always will.I cant wait to start doing photography with a77.Please visit my website to see the images i have taken so far with my Sony Alpha...
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..
Summary: from day one open from the box recharge battery full 100% i used for 20 minutes after one day turn one the camera a message shows battery exhausted strange i recharge it again check again battery is 100% full used it for 1 minute only after one day same problem wtf is wrong with this camera i check the firmware v1.03 the latest version beware there are big issues in the a77 waste of money regret buying it surprise surprise it was made in thailand thumbs down
Summary: I bought this camera to work along side my 5dmark 2 for video. Its a great video camera but there is one thing that bothers me. The Auto shutter keeps adjusting your settings in manual mode. Does anyone knows how to dis engage auto shutter in manual mode? I wanted to shoot a half stop darker for a scene and as soon as i panned the camera the shutter automatically changed as the a77 to suit the "perfect" Exposure value.
Summary: After weeks of waiting for this camera to be available for retail sale on the Sony Style website, I was fortunate enough to purchase one from a retail camera outfit in this area who pre-ordered some awhile back when they first were available for pre-order on the Sony Style website... Let me say one thing, this Sony SLT-A77VQ is one of the greatest camera's, EVER!
