My new 24MP camera is finally here

posted on 15th of august, 2012

I have decided to replace my old but superb SONY a700 12MP DSLR with a new SONY a77 24MP SLT.

Finally I have buyed a77 yesterday and I can say that this is an amazing machine. If you take a look at my portfolio, then you will see that I very much like macro photography. Specially extreme magnifications of spiders.

I needed to upgrade from my 12MP camera to this superb 24MP because I want to make some extra large prints beyond A3 formats, so this camera will allow me to do this.

I also hope that I will gain some extra earnings here, since I will from now on upload a much bigger images, so I hope for a little bigger credit sales in future.

I really hope that this camera will serve me well for a next few years.
Thanks for reading.

Congrats on buying Sony A77! Nice pics! I am waiting for Nikon D5200 (hopefully next year). For now and in near future 16.2MP D5100 will serve me well ;-)

Thanks people...I did not take a real testing yet(working, no free time), but for now I can say that this camera really have some cool features...electronic viewfinder is AMAZING!!!...I can take a picture, review image and delete it without removing my eye from viewfinder!!! cool feature for macro photography...also GPS is a very nice addition for my trip or vacation photos, so I will spare a lot of time in geotagging my images for Dreamstime!!!

Thanks Artalis :)

Unfortunately I buyed a77 with kit lens but with older 18-55 kit lens which I have selled right away to a person who buyed my a700. I would love to have new 16-50 f2.8 kit lens, but that combo was little out of my budget.

Congrats on your new camera. Did it come with the kit lens? I heard that it's a good lens...
Great macro shots :-)

Thanks a lot people.

@Davidwatmough - well yeah, my 12MP a700 had 18mb raw file size, and this 24MP a77 has 24mb raw files. I have excpected 36mb raw files, but luckily 24mb is a lot less then 36mb, so I am pretty happy with that. But yes, soon I will need to think about upgrading my storage unit, and backing up all my images and raw files.

The SONY a77 24MP SLT gets great reviews! Just read a few online. Have a blast with the new camera!!

I hope the cost of disc storage doesn't rise !!!!!!!!!!!! I am afraid of 25 M Pixel sensors. David I am sure you will be happy for your macro work.
