Yesterday I posted the rumor about the A77 directional side-hinged LCD. The source that shared the info sent me a “rumor correction”. He said the side-hinge design was not chosen for the final production camera (it was here for one of the prototypes only). The final A77 camera will have a “wishbone hinge with a centre pivot”
The source apologizes for the mistake, it was not meant to mislead. He also added his thoughts about the A77: “I can confirm as others have noted to you that this model has a serious potential to be a Canon/Nikon killer. It is incredibly fast, precise and simply a dream to shoot with.”
The rumor has been upgraded from SR2 to SR4 because other sources confirmed the center pivot of the A77!
P.S.:Another trusted sources told me that High-ISO is surprisingly good for a camera having a 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor.
P.P.S.: The main competitors of the A77 are the..
Nikon 7000. Check Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
The Canon 7D. Check Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
Pentax. Check Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!
