A77 rescues a shoot - my poor a850

Grrrrr...

Paid for studio. Played calendar hopscotch with models. Up at break of dawn and ready to shoot. Halfway through the shoot, my recently returned a850 gives the dreaded "camera err". I took two deep breaths. Cylced the power and it took one more shot. That was it, it was done for the day. I picked of the a77 and finished the shoot.

There's nothing to do but ship it back. It will the third trip. I'm just about sick to my stomach.

The good news is that the a77 worked admirably. WB is excellent and the LCD was great for the low angle shots. Focus was great and quick and the keepers are pretty high.

The a77 detail level isn't on par with the a850 though. It's close but I missed some of what I wanted in the final series.

Just venting.
