Days at the coast with my A77 - images!
Dec 8, 2011

Last weekend I got the chance to capture some scenes at the coast with my A77. The weather was a bit hash. Also, we don't have too much daylight during the winter up here at 63 degrees north, as the sun is above the horizon for just some hours. Periods with rain and gale breeze also made handheld photography with the 70-400 mm lens troublesome.

My only complaint on the camera is that the video button is too easy pushed accidently. Other than that, the camera works perfect. All knobs and wheels allow the use of gloves. The EVF does the job, and the magnification view is superb for critical focus check!

For the two long exposure photographs I used a B+W ND 1000 filter. This filter does not vignette as much at 16 mm with the A77 and 16-50 mm lens than with the A900 and the Zeiss 24 mm f:2 lens, no matter how much the lens is stopped down (I tested the range f:8 to f:16).

Here are some images taken with a rain wet A77 with the G 70-400 mm lens or the 16-50 mm kit lens.
