Summary: So after many happy years with the excellent A200, I decided to take the plunge and bought the A77 (body). Having read endless reviews on the A77 it seemed that the general opinion was that the technology wasn't quite there yet but the advantages outweighed the disadvantages. Being keen on sports photography it offered unparalled performance in terms on frame rate and focusing.
Summary: Bought for a safari to Africa, paired with Sigma 70-200 f2.8. A dream to use, extra focus points were welcome & toggle joystick makes it much easier to select individual points whilst camera is to the eye. Multi way screen is excellent & allows for awkward angle shots. Coped with everything Africa could throw at it, and some. Noise management is a step up from my other body, a200. All in all a brilliant body for Sony users. If you can afford it, it's well worth it.
Summary: Have had the A77 for a fortnight now and have grown to like it more with use. The noise is not as bad as the reviews would make you believe and the camera operation is fast. ISO 1600 looks good. At first I was not totally happy with EVF but it's actually very useful. I had no problems updating to firmware 1.04. The build quality in my opinion is the same as the A700 i.e. feels solid and reassuring.
Summary: The EVF. You just have to try it, & you'll probably be like me, for the first 10 minutes I was like, I hate this, what have I done! Then, it clicked, & I don't think I'll ever go back to an Optical Viewfinder ever again. You can overlay a histogram, & more importantly, enable focus peaking, so you instantly know you've nailed the focus on those important images. The other important thing is to set the viewfinder brightness to 'manual' & +1 brightness.
Summary: Pros: Excellent quality of the images,lots of features to play with.I do consider this camera as a professional camera Cons: No Cons at all 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...
Summary: This is a unique camera with so many innovations, which will change the future of the SRL market, the "kit" lens is excellent, fast optics and super fast focusing, while being silent (which is important for making movies). The same fast (24-70) F/2.8 lens for full frame cameras cost twice as much (Nikon /Canon equivalents) and weights twice as much too!
Summary: I have had the Sony A77 for about a month and am still discovering hidden depths. The electronic viewfinder is excellent and though some optical die-hards may still quibble, I have experienced no problems whatsoever. My previous experience of the 'new-wave' translucent mirror system was with the A33 so the A77's improvement in resolution and responsiveness is easy to see.
Summary: Ich habe mir die Kamera wegen Sportaufnahmen im semiprofessionellen Bereich gekauft und bin mit der Qualität der Bilder sehr zufrieden. Preis und Leistung sind bei dieser Kamera wirklich sehr fair, und die Verarbeitung ist wie gewohnt sehr gut. All Knöpfe liegen griffgünstig und sind perfekt erreichbar. Die Bedienlogik ist leicht erlernbar und stört nicht bei komplexen Aufgaben.
Summary: Hammermäßige Kamera. Ich bin total unbedarft was Fotograpfie angeht und hatte lange eine Alpha 100. Anfangs habe ich mit der recht günstigen Alpha 58 geliebäugelt. Dann habe ich die Alpha SLT A77 ausprobiert und war begeistert. Insbesondere der verhältnismäßig günstige Preis gegenüber der Sony ILCA Alpha 77 II, mit kaum geringeren Features, hat mich dann zum Kauf bewegt. Mit dieser Kamera werde ich wohl nie meine Fähigkeiten ausreizen können.
Summary: Über die Kamera braucht man nicht viel zu sagen, ist Klasse...wären da nicht die Sensorflecken, habe die Kamera gebraucht gekauft...und nach einigen Bilder die ersten Flecken ....Kamera sofort professionell reinigen lassen.. nach einigen hundert Fotos wieder das selbe...Reinigung durch Fachfirma..das ging mehrere male so...und was man im Internet alles so abenteuerliches über Sensorreinigung gelesen hat, hat mir Angst gemacht, was kaputt zu machen..was tun...
