Re: A77 too heavy for lengthy video.

It's not your imagination, it's tougher to hold still for long periods without some support.  Monopod recommendations are great (secure that wrist strap).  Much of the conventional still photo handholding techniques don't exactly carry over to video, but there are tools to help alleviate the suffering depending on the type of video you're taking.  It doesn't help that SLR designs were never really conceived with (comfortable) video in mind.
