Review units for Sony’s long-anticipated replacement for the A700, the Sony A77, have finally made it to UK shores, although the worst flood disaster to strike Thailand for 50 years has hampered the camera’s official release into the market.
Scanning the A77’s specifications, it’s impossible to be unimpressed with what’s on offer. The camera is positively overflowing with up-to-the-minute technology that either matches or supersedes the competition. Boasting a new 24.3Mp APS-C format CMOS sensor, 19-point autofocus (AF) system, 12fps continuous shooting, Full HD (1080p) video recording and the highest resolution electronic viewfinder we’ve seen to date, it’s clear that Sony isn’t taking any prisoners in its battle against the traditional SLR.
