Sony Alpha SLT-A77 / 16-50mm Kit Review

  • 4.5 / 5
    • The good:
      Very well built, Excellent still and video quality, Terrific OLED viewfinder
    • The bad:
      Bulky, Noisy at higher ISOs

    The Sony Alpha SLT-A77 is positioned in the market as one of the premium choices among SLRs. Built and made for enthusiasts in mind, it does meet expectations from enthusiasts themselves who are continuously looking for better quality.

     

    The Sony Alpha SLT-A77 does perfectly well in capturing details and in keeping color accuracy as well as contrast. It has a remarkably solid performance when it comes to exposure, making the camera reliable in various settings. It can manage in practically all types of photography: landscape, sports, low light, among others. Following its SLT predecessors, the Sony Alpha SLT-A77 features the fixed semi-transparent mirror or what is most commonly referred to as the translucent mirror.

     

    If you are not familiar with this technology, the translucent mirror allows light to enter the lens, but diverts it to the 19-point phase-detect AF array. This makes way for better and faster auto-focusing. Regular dSLRs tends to fail in this aspect because the basic phase-detect AF system of such cameras don’t work well when used during live view. The 19-point sensor also enables the Sony Alpha SLT-A77to detect the best AF point to shoot at especially when the subjects are moving in the frame.

     

    Even when you choose to work on default settings, you would see the good quality output of the Sony Alpha SLT-A77. The minimal noise in the photos and videos is satisfactory. Aside from the reliable continuous autofocus system in the video mode, the Sony Alpha SLT-A77 also features the Smart Teleconverter. It enlarges the images up to twice its original size which consequently lowers the resolution to more or less 12 megapixels. Given its relatively cheaper price, it is one of the best choices when compared to its competitors as it allows the user to use maximum resolution for still photos and a quite surprising 28 megabits per second in AVCHD Progressive videos.

     

    Cameras of the same price point do not normally offer these features. The Sony Alpha SLT-A77’s additional features include the improved OLED electronic viewfinder and the built in GPS receiver. The Sony Alpha SLT-A77 also has a commendable ergonomics. The controls are manageable and easy to follow even for the amateurs. The design and positioning of keys work best for snappers that prefer shooting at manual setting rather than automatic and preset program settings. The camera’s battery life allows more or less 500 shots. When used at an ordinary rate, it can withstand two to three days of shooting stills.
