Default PhotographyBLOG Names Sony's SLT-A77 DSLR of the Year

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.photographyblog.com/news/dslr_camera_of_the_year_2011/' target='_blank'>http://www.photographyblog.com/news..._the_year_2011/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Our penultimate award is for the DSLR Camera of the Year 2011. Somewhat overshadowed by the rise of compact system cameras, DSLRs are still the staple product for the big two of Canon and Nikon. But it&rsquo;s the young upstart Sony that most caught our eye in 2011 with the launch of the A77..."</em></p><p><img height="630" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1314200820.usr15670.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>Personally, I was a little shocked to find out that the A77 was given the nod, till I realised that in the other SLRs released in 2011 were Sony's own A65 and A35, the Canon EOS 600D and 1100D, and the Nikon D5100. Not much of a competition there; had Nikon launched the D300 replacement or Canon the EOS 5D Mark III, it would have been quite a different story.</p>

Popular Photography really loved the A77. Sony seems to have really gotten its act together and is hungry for success in the digital camera market. They're definitely out-working Nikon and Canon from what I can tell...

Have you seen the image samples? They're not great. ISO 400 and there's noticeable noise. The transparent mirror robs enough light from the sensor for it to have an adverse effect; compare it with the NEX 7 and you can see that the effects. It's not particularly pretty.
