Sony A77 image quality post!

Share


Let’s focus on the A77 image quality But before we do that we should consider a few limitations:
1) Most image samples on the web have been taken in non professional conditions. Most journalists or photographer didn’t even know how to use the camera when they got their hands on the A77 also because they had only a few minutes time to play with it!
2) Some features like AF fine tuning and Lens correction still do not work on the pre production A77
3) Camera and firmware are not finalized!
4) Professional RAW support is missing
5) Most of the pictures weren’t taken with top quality lenses. A 24 megapixel sensors needs the best lenses to deliver the best results!

That said let’s take a look at all Image samples.
