Re: More fps VS better accuracy of AF? ;)

IM a sport shooter for 20 years, the A77 is the absolute best camera Ive ever owned.. the 12 FPS is awesome, allowing me to pick twice as many frames, incrementally closer together in order to get the " Money shot " ...

I can shoot 17 frames @ 12 FPS continuously before the camera slows down..But because I am very experienced in anticipation, ( from 40 years of shooting film ).

The A77 is the right tool.

Freezing the ball off the bat ( at the precise nanosec. )
Freezing the puck off the stick
Freezing the soccer ball off the foot, knee or head, etc.
Freezing a spike at the top of the net in volleyball

I mentioned freezing ( shutter speed )as the means to stop the action... but its the frame rate that delivers the exact frame you want...

Hi Bill. I really only got into the photography side of DSLR's in 2011 - usually shoot video. But a complete novice like myself was able to shoot these with the A77 and the Sigma 70-200 (Actually the A57 for all but the first one)
