the trees are getting barer, the birds hungrier, and sony a77 has lost a feather as well :

it's lost the ability to prevent shooting without card! It used to be near release without lens!

I suppose the last update was so massive they had to find room somewhere. I think the trade off between locking the movie button and loosing that no card failsafe is a bit stiff!

the lost 20 picture of the great spotted woodpecker are sure still fresh in my memory but damn!

I hope I understand your post correctly, and I understand you have an A77. I have an A65, and if I shoot without a memory card, the pictures go to an internal memory drive until it fills. Now, if I put in the memory card, the internal memory is masked by the memory card I just inserted. To see the "internal" contents, you need to remove the memory card, and connect the camera to your PC.

Sorry in advance if I misunderstood.
