Redefining the camera. Get action photos, HD Movies and Live View shots that other cameras miss, thanks to Sony?s exclusive Translucent Mirror Technology. Enjoy 24.3 megapixel resolution-with the world?s fastest shooting up to 12 frames per second- and the world?s first OLED electronic viewfinder.

 

2nd Generation Translucent Mirror Design

Other DSLRs can shoot. Or they can focus with the speed and precision of Phase Detection AF. They cannot do both at once. Sony changes all that with the award-winning Translucent Mirror Technology system. It directs light to both the image sensor and the Phase Detection AF sensor simultaneously.

24.3 MP; best-in-class resolution

You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements thanks to a 24.3 megapixel sensor. It?s the highest resolution among APS-C DSLRs, as of August 2011.

World?s fastest up to 12 fps continuous

The translucent mirror makes it far easier to capture the decisive soccer kick or your baby at her absolute cutest. Shoots up to 12 frames per second at full-resolution 24.3 megapixels with continuous auto focus (AE locked after first frame). This is the world?s fastest shooting speed for interchangeable lens APS-C cameras, as of August, 2011.

World?s first OLED viewfinder

There?s never been anything quite like the Tru-Finder OLED electronic viewfinder. For size, speed and brightness even after sunset, this is a gem. It begins with 2359K dots for amazing resolution and high contrast ratio for incredible depth. OLED reduces motion blur to a bare minimum. You can also see the results of camera adjustments in real time with superb color and detail.

HD Movies4 at 60p, 60i, or 24p

Capture spectacular HD Movies4. This is the world?s first DSLR to offer a choice of super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, all at Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. AVCHD codec delivers stunning picture quality. MP4 codec offers smaller files for easier upload to the web.

HD movies with full manual control

Now you don?t need to surrender control when you shoot HD movies.4 Enjoy the full expressive potential of Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Manual (P/A/S/M) control in HD movie mode.

Full-time Phase Detection AF

You get fast, accurate auto focus in every mode?even HD Movie and Live View?thanks to Sony?s exclusive Translucent Mirror Technology. While Contrast Detection Auto Focus often hunts for correct focus, Phase Detection AF knows exactly where correct focus is, and goes straight for it.

Full-Time Live View in LCD or EVF

You can use both the LCD monitor and OLED Electronic Viewfinder for composing shots in Live View. Both provide a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays.

World?s shortest release time lag

Helps ensure that the image you want is the image you get. Once auto focus occurs, release time lag is the delay between fully pressing the shutter release and when the camera actually starts taking the picture. Long lag makes it harder to capture fast-moving objects. The Sony A77 boasts the world?s shortest release time lag at only 0.05 seconds.

Rugged, magnesium alloy body

The SLT-A77 is built for the real world with a magnesium alloy body that combines high strength with light weight. Ports, doors and controls are also weather-resistant for smooth operation under adverse conditions.

Object Tracking AF

Locks onto a specified object and maintains focus even as the subject moves. Unpredictable subjects stay in focus even while zooming. You can concentrate on composition without worrying about focus.

19-point Auto Focus

To maximize the value of Translucent Mirror Technology, Sony incorporates Phase Detection AF of great sophistication. 19 sensors with 11 cross sensors maximize precision for both vertical and horizontal subjects.

Three-way tilt/swivel LCD screen

Tilt it up or down to frame high- and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit-or-miss. Tilt and swivel over the camera for self-portraits. You can even tilt it up and down when you hold the camera in vertical mode! Finally, the monitor folds flush to the camera with the LCD exposed for shooting or protected for travel.

Dual control dials

Perfect for experienced shooters, dual control dials provide direct, hands-on access to two settings at a time.

Top mounted LCD

In addition to status displays on the LCD monitor and Electronic Viewfinder, Sony offers a top-mounted LCD with exposure information.

6-image layering

Leverages the fast BIONZ processor to capture six images in a fraction of a second, and then combine the data. The result is one incredible single image that gets a cleaner result in Multi-Frame NR mode or sharper nighttime pictures in Hand-held Twilight mode.

Multi-frame NR

Experience incredible low-light shooting without a flash. The camera captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six, it creates a single image with a reduction in noise equivalent to two additional steps of ISO sensitivity. Sensitivity selectable up to ISO 16000. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Handheld Twilight mode

Get gorgeous shots at night without a tripod. Combines six frames into a single image for smooth, low-noise evening shots. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Auto HDR built into camera

Captures more scene dynamic range than a single exposure can handle?and more range than photo film. Combines the best highlight detail from one shot, the best mid-tones from a second and the best shadow detail from a third for one incredible shot. (Recommended for still subjects.)

3D Sweep Panorama Mode

Capture vast scenic vistas and 16:9 shots in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your 3D television1. Records both JPEG and MPO file formats.

Sweep Panorama Mode

Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together.

Built-in GPS

An integrated GPS receiver records the location and time of every shot you take and lets you view your images on a map with compatible computer and Internet applications, so you can remember where you took your favorite shots.6

Shot Result Preview

See the results before you take the shot. This preview takes the guesswork out of camera settings by showing the effects of the aperture, shutter and DRO settings on the depth of field, motion and dynamic range.

921K dot TruBlack LCD screen

Sony's 3.0-inch Xtra Fine LCD monitor has 921K dots for superb resolution. The TruBlack screen includes a special resin layer to suppress internal reflections, increasing contrast compared to conventional LCDs. Sunny Weather mode boosts visibility even further.

Main Sensor Quick AF Live View

Combines the fast focus of Phase Detection AF with high quality Live View images right from the main sensor. This is made possible by Sony Translucent Mirror Technology. You get accurate images and 100% framing on the LCD monitor or eye-level viewfinder.

ISO 16000 sensitivity

Incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail, made possible by the low-noise Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor and refined BIONZ image processor.

AUTO+ (Advanced Auto) mode

Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. Unifies and simplifies Sony intelligent technologies. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode.

Graphic Display

Clarifies the relationship between aperture and shutter speed, as well as the effect each has on photographic results.

Upgraded BIONZ image processor

The brain of the camera is a Sony?s BIONZ image processor substantially upgraded for the demands of 24.3 megapixel photography. Chroma noise reduction delivers high-resolution, low-noise photos even at ISO 16000. Also enables fast processing for up to 12 fps continuous shooting of data-intensive 24.3 MP images, 2D/3D Sweep Panorama modes and 6-image layering.

Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO)

Improves results with backlit subjects and recovers details hidden in shadows. Settings include Auto, Level with a choice of five operating levels and Off.

1200-Zone exposure metering

Reads exposure directly from the main image sensor. Choice of Multi, Center and Spot metering accommodates a full range of shooting situations.

SteadyShot INSIDE stabilization

Image stabilization reduces blur by compensating for camera shake. Typical DSLR systems build image stabilization into selected lenses only. SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization is built into the camera body itself. You'll reduce blur with every A Mount lens, including macro and wide-aperture standard zoom lenses.

HDMI output for HD viewing

Enjoy HD movies and stunning still images on a compatible HDTV.7 The camera includes an HDMI output. In addition, the BRAVIA Sync system works with compatible Sony BRAVIA HDTVs enabling you to control camera playback using the television's remote8.

Up to 530 Shots of battery life

Take up to 530 shots on a single charge with Sony Stamina battery power.9 Sony's InfoLITHIUM battery system enables you to see the percent of power remaining, so you can keep shooting in confidence.

P/A/S/M exposure modes

The camera offers a full range of controls from the beginner's AUTO+ mode to P/A/S/M: Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual. On-screen prompts help you refine your skills, build your confidence and exercise greater creative control.

Advanced Anti-Dust Technology

Anti-Dust Technology helps keep the CMOS sensor clean, resulting in consistently clear pictures. First a static-free coating on the sensor's low-pass filter helps repel dust. Then vibration automatically dislodges dust from the sensor.

Built-in Flash (GN12)

To help you shoot more effectively, the camera includes a built-in flash (Guide Number 12) that can also trigger a wireless accessory flash (sold separately). The integrated hot shoe enables you to expand your lighting options with a range of accessory flashes (sold separately).

Slot for two media types

For cost-effective, convenient storage and sharing of your images, the camera accepts Memory Stick PRO Duo/Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo and SD/SDHC/SDXC media (Class 4 or higher recommended, sold separately).

APS-C size HD CMOS image sensor

With 19.5 times the area of the typical camcorder image sensor, APS-C makes the difference between amateur and professional-looking video, delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.

Sony Exmor technology

Conventional image sensors use only a handful of analog-to-digital (A/D) converters, which can slow you down. The Exmor sensor provides more than 5,600 column-parallel A/D converters. This helps enable continuous shooting at up to 12 frames per second.

11 Picture Effect modes

Discover innovative ways to make your images and videos pop. These include Posterization (Color, B/W), Pop Color, Retro Photo, Partial Color (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow), Soft High-key, High Contrast Monochrome, Toy Camera, Soft Focus, HDR Painting, Rich-tone Monochrome, and Miniature.

Face Detection and Registration

The camera can automatically detect up to eight individual faces and adjust focus, exposure, white balance and flash to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of people. Can prioritize children or adults. Face Registration can remember friends and family members and prioritize them.

Smile Shutter technology

Captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply select the Smile Shutter mode and the camera takes the picture automatically. You can prioritize children or adults and adjust the smile sensitivity.

5 out of 5 stars   I bought an A 77 Sony digital camera outfit.
By Pepper Morris (Fremont, Nebraska) May 30, 2014
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77VQ a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP with 16-50mm, 55-300 Ultimate Bundle (E6SNSLTA77VQ)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I bought it after looking for 3 months and found their Kit was all the equipment I needed. I have $5,000 of old SLR 35mm equipment and was looking for the new technology. This kit fills my idea of what I needed. Got it in about 4 or 5 days in good shape. Lots of good packing.
Cons: They should have given it to me free cuz I'm such a good guy. That's the only con I can come up with.
Other Comments: They should have sent me a store person to show me how to use it. MAYBE that's what on the DVD enclosed. I may have to look into that. At 69 years of age I do look at the directions before I try to use anything. -------RIGHT

By Dmitry Pushkov (Azov, Russia) May 16, 2014
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77V - a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP Body Only (SNSLTA77V)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Huge resolution, customizable, Minolta lenses, GPS. Adequate price.
Cons: Specific SLT technology for still imaging: light falloff - 0.3 EV.
Other Comments: I love '80 Minolta optics. Therefore I need to buy Sony alpha camera. Sony A99 is very expensive for me and it hasn't GPS.

5 out of 5 stars   Best camera for the price
By Louis (Florence, KY) February 26, 2014
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77VQ - a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP with 16-50mm Zoom Lens (SNSLTA77VQ)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: It's my 4th time buying a Sony A77. Mostly everything about it is just better than rivals'. Best value camera for the money. Not forget to mention the superb quality of the 16-50mm f/2.8 lens. I has a feeling that this lens has some qualities of a G lens.
Cons: Just only 1 memory card slot (compared to 2 slots of Nikon D7000 and D7100). Poor ISO performance.
Other Comments: Although there are some cons about the camera body itself, I still give it fully 5 stars due to the features it offers at a very reasonably low price.

4 out of 5 stars   Sony A77 Kit not so great
By Marsh.16 (St. Louis Suburb) December 25, 2013
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77VQ - a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP with 16-50mm Zoom Lens Plus Bundle (E3SNSLTA77VQ)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: With this camera I will be upgrading from a Canon SX-40 to a good Sony DSLR with a good 16-50 SSM lens. I have already taken advantage of being able to use Minolta A-mount lenses. The 55-300mm lens that came with this kit sucks and I wish Beach Camera would take the lens back for an exchange.

4 out of 5 stars   Overall excellent camera!
By chilehead craig (Travelers Rest, SC) August 23, 2013
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77VQ - a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP with 16-50mm Zoom Lens Plus Bundle (E3SNSLTA77VQ)
Pros: Tilt /Swivel LCD, Quiet, Fast Shutter Speed, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Stabilization, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Easy To Use, Good Image Quality
Cons: Poor In Low Light, Noisy At High ISO
Other Comments: Really great camera and this bundle was a bargain! The camera works so well on so many levels. The things that I really liked are the EFV, awesome 16-50 "kit" lens and the ergonomics. Its pretty straightforward to use. The downside is that images get a little noisy at 800 ISO and up. Other than performing a little lower with regard to noise, the positives more than make up for it unless low noise is absolutely critical (if the majority of your shots will be indoors in low light and no flash).

5 out of 5 stars   Better then I could have dreamed
By Zipper (San Francisco) January 20, 2013
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77VQ a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP with 16-50mm, 55-300 Ultimate Bundle (E6SNSLTA77VQ)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: Really had no idea what 24 mega pixel would look like, but now that I have seen the detail (had 16mega pixel Pentax)I'm shocked with the texture of Feathers, Fur and Landscape [photography. Qualtity of the camera and optics is wonderful. If you are upgrading your camera I highly recommend the Sony a77. Only short coming have been lack of wireless remote sensor on the back of the camera and battery life is short. Really short.

5 out of 5 stars   Pretty Darn Nice Camera
By Ironworker Local 86 (Seattle WA) January 12, 2013
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77V - a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP Body Bundle (E1SNSLTA77V)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Quiet, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Cons:
Other Comments: I think it is a fantastic camera, although admittedly I am still learning to use it. I chose the Sony as it would accept my old lenses from my 35 mm camera. I was able to buy a superior camera for less. The camrera is much more advanced than I am, but there is room to advance and learn. The auto and auto+ take pretty good pictures without me doing anything cognitive.

4 out of 5 stars   Good Camera, Don't buy a bundle!
By Steve (kentucky) January 08, 2013
Review submitted for Sony SLTA77V - a77 Digital SLR 24.3 MP Body Only (SNSLTA77V)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Tilt /Swivel LCD, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: The worst part of the experience was buying from Beach. I'd bought directly from sony before and my A55 had come with a clear plastic protective film on the lcd monitor and a taped up box. The a77 from beach arrived with no seal and no protective film. I was concerned since Beach also sells open box cameras. I called and they told me I could send it back, so I assumed I had been given an open box by mistake. a friend told me I should call Sony and the operator said that after so many A77s are produced, they stop putting the protective film on and stop sealing the box. Even so, no one from Beach explained this to me and a week later, I received the SAME camera I'd sent to them in the first place! Also, I bought a bundle and all the "extras" are cheap. I feel like I got ripped off.
