The A77 DSLR sports a brand new sensor as yet we don’t know if it’s full frame or APS. A 3 million dot OLED LCD that has a swivel function…very useful. FULL HD recording in 60p, 50p, 25p and 24p. Conforms to AVCHD Two, this is a 28mbps rate rather than 24. Thats all the technical info we have at the moment.
UPDATE : According to rumors the A77 is supposed to feature dual BIONZ image processors, a 24MP image sensor, HIGH ISO performance (really high), a quick AutoFocus system with 11 AF points, an electronic OLED viewfinder with a whopping 3 million dot resolution, capabilities for recording full HD (1920 x 1080) video are expected, GPS functionality, and finally built-in USB 3.0 support (USB 3.0 offers up to 10x the performance of USB 2.0, and USB 3.0 is faster than FireWire 800).
Before you run out and order the A77, have a read at my next blog (Friday) which involves two Canon D60s and a Sony FS100…this sobering story may save your bacon one day.
