Summary: This camera has been a great step up from my Sony A550, allowing me to continue to use my Minolta and Sony lenses, a huge plus (the 70-300 is superb and the 18-250 lens is the best walk-a-round lens in the DSLR world) with a substantive increase in electronic wizardry and camera functionality.
I just got it and WOW! This is the perfect camera for me!
27 January 2014
Summary: I have had 35mm cameras, and have shot photos since the days of the Minolta SRT-101. I learned the ins and outs of composition, focus, aperture, shutter speed, depth of field and batteries at an early age.
Summary: I looked at cameras a long time before making a decision. For the money, I felt this was the very best option to get the features I wanted. I have been using the a77 for 14 months now, and I think Sony has done a great job with this camera to get up to speed with the big players in the category.
Summary: The Sony A77V or VM DSLT Mirror Camera is now over two years old since its release. Yet it still remains one of the best sellers (like the Canon EOS 60D or Nikon D5200) in that it is a true pro-sumer bridge type camera system.
Summary: I am very pleased with the performance of this camera, clear shots, easy to use if you are somewhat familiar with a DSLR. Has many options for your personal style of photography. The only draw back I see is that when you go to adjust the diopter for your vision sometimes you hit the record button...
Summary: Better than expect. Easy to work, great quality of image with minimum deformation at any situation that I have tried until now. The viewer/eyepiece is digital so we can view the effect automatically (different from the regular LCD viewer since the image appears with little adjustments).
Summary: I love this camera. The crystal clear photos are amazing. It has some neat features such as the translucent lens technology that changes how cameras work. Instead of the old traditional mirror that moves up and down and can cause shake, this mirror doesn't have to move.
