  • Excerpt: To me, the A77 with its 24Mp APS-C sensor + focus peaking + high frame rate looks like the perfect macrophotography tool. Combined with my Tamron 1:1 180mm f:3.5, it is amazing. Then, I mainly use ISO 200 to 400. For other kinds of photography (landscape, concerts, etc.), I much prefer the A850 and its OVF + FF sensor. Not that the A77 is bad, but it just cannot compete. So, I like the A77. I don't love it but it's nice to have it.

  • Summary: I am really glad I found this deal as I was about to push the button on a sony 65 package and then found Focus's deal couldnt find anything comperable within $500. they even sent me a better memory card then depicted. Also del was 4 days early! Thanx Focus This is an update about the rest of the package deal from Focus The tripod was insufficient to say the least It could not hold the camera weight, along with the camera bag which wasnt even a "camera" bag but one for a...

Sony Alpha 77

  • Summary: The flash started to flash 3-4 times before taking picture, it wasn't that way before. The 55-300mm doesn't focus great on its own.
  • Pros: Features
  • Cons: Heavy, the flash, the 55-300 lens

  • Excerpt: After almost 1 year of using my A77 for my photography business, I am finally almost satisfied. It's impossible to satisfy a professional wedding or event photographer with a budget under $3000 for a DSLR, but sony has came close with speed and quality when paired with the proper G-Lenses. The only improvements I would like to see is a better external flash, WIFI and blue tooth options for event on site printing.

Still trying.......

  • Summary: Upgraded from the A-500 to the SLT A77. This is a nice camera. First, it feels good in my hand as it is nicely balanced. Photo quality is good, colors are rich, and shooting is solid. The supplied lens DT 16-50 2.8 SSM must be a guilt favor from Sony because it is plush. It is an extraordinary piece of glass. What I am not thrilled about is Sony not adding basic functions like TETHERING, again. I like to shoot hooked up my non-windows computer though an editing program.

Needs some improvements

Zoltangz, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Paper specifications do not tell the story .. and this camera is a good example of this fact. After reading the extensive reviews, there is nothing like holding, and pressing buttons on the actual item. It has been a few years since I used 35mm SLR cameras with interchangeable lenses, some with some very hefty glass weight. This camera is no exception, even if it is all digital. It is cumbersome with the kit lens, and built like a battleship.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Exceptional viewfinder, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Heavy, Noisy At High ISO, Noisy even at 100 ISO, Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light

Interesting in many ways

elem2618, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am a wedding and event photographer. I find the camera to be well built and well thought out in many ways. The things that a made me feel it was not a "keeper" were: Too heavy for it's class and when used with the 18-50 balance seems off, unlike a camera like the 7D which I presume is it's close competition. Battery on Canon's seem to last way longer It is very disturbing to have screen blackout between shot which I guess is necessary, due to it having an EVF screen.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Noisy At High ISO, No optical view finder, Short Battery Life

Зеркальная камера Sony Alpha SLT-A77M Kit 18-135mm

  • Summary: Взвесьте все за и против, так как за эту цену можно взять классику жанра в этом направлении.
  • Pros: Аппарат, достойный. Качество фото просто супер при хорошей освещенности. Много всяких настроек, упрощающих фото. Для профи это покажется минусом. Внешне смотрится дорого и качественно.
  • Cons: Недостатков достаточно много которые перекрывают плюсы. 1. Электронно-оптический видоискатель - при хорошей освещенности вы даже не поймете что смотрите изображение с дополнительной матрицы. Но когда наступит вечер, сразу поймете, так как смотря в видоискатель увидите шумную картинку. 2. Недостаток исходит из первого, ЭВИ просто жрет аккумуляторную аккумуляторную батарею. Это даже прописано в тех. паспорте на аппарат, что при использовании ЭВИ расход батареи увеличи...

Ganska bra

  • Summary: Prestandamässigt är kameran fantastisk. Snabb, exakt och trevlig att jobba med. Har inget negativt att säga om det. Skärmen och sökaren är mycket bra samt även GPS sköter sig utmärkt. Mycket smidiga menyer och placering av reglage. Skulle önskat en nivå-mätare i kombination med histogram men det går bara att få endera eller. Nu till de saker som jag upplever som lite tråkiga. Joysticken på baksidan saknar i princip känsla helt.

rauscht mir zu stark ab Iso 800

dimpfelmoser, Amazon

  • Summary: Die Bedienung ist wirklich sehr gut bei dieser Kamera. Auch das Fokuspeaking über den elektronischen Sucher oder den Live View klappt wunderbar. Allerdings habe ich die Kamera wieder zurück geschickt, da sie mir bei "low-light" Aufnahmen nicht die gewünschte Leistung gebracht hat. Bei ISO 1600 fällt das Rauschen schon deutlich negativ auf. Ab ISO 800 sieht man es schon, ist aber noch sehr akzeptabel.
