Sony Alpha A77

Summary

Our Score:

9

User Score:

Shooting JPEGs on either Automatic or Auto (as above) produces images with plenty of saturation and contrast.

Whereas images shot in any of the PASM modes with the Picture Control set to standard, produces something more neutral.

Sony A77 Sample Image

The A77's Dynamic Range Optimiser has done a good job of preserving detail in the subject's face in this back-lit portrait.

The Sony DT 16-50mm f/2.8 can be used to create lush bokeh in defocused areas.

Sony A77 Sample Image

Using the 'Vivid' Picture Style produces images with punchy colour and tone.

Sony A77 Sample Image

Sony's iSweep Panorama technology is the best there is for creating one-touch ultra-wideangle images.

I own the A65 which uses the same image capture hardware as the A77 but skips a few of the "Pro features" for a substantial saving.

The images taken by this camera are excellent and the Video is 2nd to none, including the £5.5k cameras you list because of the SLT system and the continuous AF it allows. Also IS built into the camera has been improved even further and when capturing video you'll be glad you have it on every lens.

The OLED EVF has many advantages over normal optical versions (you seemed to just list the downside) including the ability to show you the effect of the settings you apply live as you shoot. There's also several "displays" that you can choose from that make taking shots that much easier.

SLT technology also allows true "live view" when using the rear screen when taking either still or video. Truly a godsend as more and more we use this over the viewfinder in everyday use.

I'm extremely impressed by this camera and highly recommend it.

The review was flat and had nothing new compared to other reviews.
It also have a very poor info on the outputs.

Finally, it is in no way as useful as your previous DSLR reviews (from 2008, 2009 and 2010).
I used to have TR as my primary source of un-biased info both for purchasing and selling.
Well, what a poor effort this latest one was.

DON'T BUY THE A77. THE LCD HAS NO COVER SO IT IS CAPABLE OF BEING DAMAGED BY SMEARS OF SWEAT/SUNCREAM/ SUNBLOCK. MOST OTHER SONY CAMERAS HAVE A COVER OVER THE LCD. SONY WOULD NOT REPAIR OUT OF WARRANTY FOR FREE
