I upgraded from SLT-A55 which I had for almost a year before getting the SLT-A77V in June 2012. Carrying over all the familiarity from the A55, meant that the learning curve wasn't too steep. Gary Friedman's A65/A77 book was a very valuable purchase and helped greatly in making the best use of all the new features and functions. The issues I had with the A55 were pretty much all addressed by the A77 including more controls (2nd wheel, ISO button, etc) as well as the improved dynamic range, ...

First the bad.  Slow response time in waking up or tuning on. This is even with f/w v1.07.  Battery stamina isn't that great to begin with, but setting a longer timeout before sleep drains it more.  Noise is quite evident beginning at ISO400.  Big downer because sometimes to keep the shutter speed up, ISO needs to be increased.  Biggest downer - slideshow effect and lag just doesn't work for fast paced action.  Period.  These issues are inherent with SLT and because of my shooting style, are ...

This has been on my 'To-Do' list for quite some time: So I have owned the A77 since the week it first shipped out in the US back in October 2011. I bought so that I may have it in time for the birth of my daughter. My review here is based on my 2.5+ years of use of the camera through a variety of scenarios and using the latest firmware. I will only be referencing RAW capabilities since that is all that I shoot. Since I also received the new A77II almost two weeks ago, this review will be ...

What I think of the Sony A77 is that it is an excellent camera the only fault I find is the noise in high ISO shots and the Jpeg shots are a little sharper then raw which is also very noisy but this camera compare to my sony A-100 is a big improvement just wish those issues would have been fix with firmware updates that would bring out the full potential of the sensor but guess sony is not big on firmware updates

I've had quite a few cameras including SLRs and DSLRs from Canon, Nikon, Konica-Minolta and Sony. The A77 is just the best overall camera I've ever owned or used. The resolution is outstanding and the color and dynamic range are amazing for an APS-C camera. The AF system is fast, accurate, and tracks moving subjects well. It's very competitive with my Canon 1D4. I absolutely love the EVF. It's a revelation in terms of getting the shot right the first time. It's so bright and clear that ...

I've been shooting with the a77 for 1 year now and it still puts a smile on my face every time I get an opportunity to use it :-) Years ago I had a Minolta 450i with a Sigma 28-80 & Sigma 70-300 combo.  I tried going past Auto mode a few times.  Most shots were severely over or under exposed and when I did get a decent picture I had no clue what I had done right :-x  I quickly went back to the safe confines of Auto mode and the security of quickly composing and pressing the shutter and ...

I have to admit I have not had as much time to shoot as I would like.  But I can tell you I have spent hours getting to know the camera and using it with my lenses. My Previous camera was an A700 owned for 6 years.  I have shots Canon SLRs in the past plus other brands. You can read all the feature lists... online etc. So none of that here.. I knew I wanted Video fnally and I own 5-6 A-Mount (Sony) Lenses...But was willing to restart if I found Canon or Nikon were that much better.   Nikon is ...

The A77 is a great camera that focuses fast and accurately, has good enough high iso capability, is extremely well built and is ergonomically comfortable. The menu system is simple and easy to navigate. One of the best APS-C cameras available. People tend to get a little overly hung up on high iso performance but IMO that is only 5% of a cameras worth unless of course you're a vampire ;-)
