Have only had the camera for a few days but have totally enjoyed every minute of it. After spending an hour or so going over the manual, the controls are fairly simple to use. The adapter for downloading the pictures worked quite easily. I've read where the 80mb card 8X is the way to go. Will look into that when the money becomes available. Problems: Autofocus not as fast or sharp as one would like, have been using manual focus most of the time.

Problems: I had the same problems with the techs at Sony regarding the software. They were a joke. I actually like the camera but have no way to load the pictures on the hard drive. I am in the process of suing Sony and would welcome anyone who would want to join a class action suit regarding this camera.

The D770 is a camera for those who enjoy the digital darkroom - if you want to ...

The overall manual controls with this camera makes it a standout. No other camera in this price range gives you this control. The image quality is not bad considering its resolution which is less than standard for todays times. I am definitely pleased with this model.

Aside from the software installation problems, this camera's features are really unmatched by any camera in the same price range. Such features are manual focus and manual zoom and the support of tiff files which is extremely important for me as I have a job on taking pictures on jewelry. Being able to save as tiff format is a must that allows me to adjust high quality pictures in Photoshop. The 1.5 M pixels is good enough for me because I only intend to publish the pictures online. The ...
