My Sony SLT-A77 Review
Look and Design
The structure of Sony A77 is solid, The chassis is made from magnesium alloy which is the main reason why it is so heavy(732g), The all around body is covered with rugged plastic that is sealed affairs to stop water going where it shouldn’t.
The 3.0 inch monitor is ultra sharp with resolution of 921k dots, as the normal camera comes with the 461k dots screen. The another feature of the display is the OLED tech which has the faster refresh rate that can improve the brightness a lot.
What about the Performance
With the same sensor from Sony NEX-7, The photo quality can be impressive both at low light and high light setting, But we don’t recommend to use the higher ISO sensitivity like ISO 6400 or above, Because the performance of noise reduction would get hard to do the job, And you will find the image get noisy and softness.
If you like shooting videos, the 1080P video mode of Sony SLT-A77 would be your best choice, Because the 60fps speed will not miss any scenes and the auto focus can help you a lot while recording.
The battery life is about 500 shots on the charged battery and i think it is enough to use for photographers, Because it s hard to store electric with the GPS Tracker for a DSLR.
Verdict and Discount
“Ever since I got my hands on Sony’s NEX-7, I’ve had high expectations for the company’s digital cameras. For the most part, the A77 lives up to them: it’s exceptionally fast, takes sharp, detailed pictures, and offers just about every feature I’d want from a mid-range DSLR. Its full-time Live View capabilities and phase-detect autofocus are superior to almost every mid-range DSLR I’ve used, and make the A77 a really great choice for a first-time DSLR buyer, since the camera can do so much of the work for you. But the A77 has its fair share of limitations, too: from the laggy menus to the slightly odd default button layout, not everything about the A77 feels properly thought out, and the lens ecosystem is a level below Nikon and Canon. It also shoots photos that are noticeably noisier than some of its competition. The A77 is an excellent camera that will serve most people very well, but it’s hard to recommend it over the Nikon D7000, the Canon EOS 60D, or even Sony’s own NEX-7, which takes equally fantastic pictures and videos in a body far smaller and at a price far lower.” – theverge
