Summary: Love this camera so far, a lot to learn as it's been many years since I have taken photography serious. All the features of much more expensive cameras. I've taken about 100 pictures in the small time frame that I have had the camera. Look forward to taking many more. Great purchase at a great price.
Sony service it terrible and the GPS has never worked!
9 September 2013
Summary: I have an older Sony Alpha and love it, but this new one has never had a working GPS (which is a primary reason I bought it) & Sony keeps telling us to use the GPS boost but that never works. We are still fighting for Sony to take it back and fix it (it's still within warranty!), but they don't accept the APO as a US address and don't seem to want to help.
Excerpt: I shoot lots of 6-9 second nature and urban video clips. I have needed the capability of including successive stills in my compositions at at least 10 frames each second. No other camera has afforded me this until the A77 came along. I can shoot at 1080p-60fps and quickly switch to 12 fps stills of the same subject.
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'm a Sony user 15 years ago, starting with a bridge camera, then a Sony Nex, Sony A65 and finally the A77. Like always, Sony products are wonderful!. This camera is perfect for everybody, an amateur or a professional fotographer. Easy to use, big in functions, amazing OLED viewfinder and perfect features. Sony is working day by day to present the best of technology in their products and the A77 is a good example. Very happy, great camera!
Summary: I love the results that I get from my A57 and was debating whether to get the A65 or A77. I chose the A77 because of it being weather-sealed. I got the camera with the 16-50 kit lens...my favorite lens for everyday use. The performance is what I expected.
