Leaked Images of the Upcoming Sony A77

Here’s a couple images of Sony’s upcoming A77 translucent mirror camera (with a battery grip attached), which is expected to be announced in late August. It’s rumored to have a 24-megapixel sensor, HD-video recording, and a $1,000 price tag. It’s unknown whether or not it packs the crazy double translucent lens hybrid viewfinder that was talked about late last year.

    I agree that they may be computer generated (notice how we didn’t say leaked “photos”), but these images do appear to show the actual camera. You can compare it to the official translucent prototype Sony showed off at the beginning of the year: http://www.petapixel.com/2011/02/09/sony-translucent-mirror-a77-to-replace-the-a700-and-arrive-later-this-year/

    Either way, I’m happy to welcome our new SLT Alpha overlords.

    Maybe the sensor is as huge as the battery grip. :)
    Since Nikon and Pentax are using Sony’s sensors I bet the megapixel war isn’t over yet.

    All of that sounds great and believable except the price tag.  Could they really sell something with 24 megapixels (unless they squashed them all on an APS-C sensor), plus their new shoot through mirror tech and a battery grip for under a grand?  That seems hard to believe, although I’d certainly like to.

    The price is lover than traditional DSLRs because this model wont have the standard mirror and optical viewfinder, making it cheaper to build.

    IMO, the difference in manufacturing costs possibly also spells the end of OVF for at least low-mid range cameras, because they will no longer be competitive, and as the technology gets better, the diffeences will be minimal in use.

    A 580 is around $800, a 55 is ~$750. There should be a serious sum of technological improvements in the 77, I doubt the price difference can be that small. Should anyone say rather 1400-1600…

    NO OVF?  If that’s true, count me out. Odd that people don’t feel the disconnect caused by an intermediary computer screen between them and their subject.  Imagine that the Mona Lisa had been painted by Da Vinci staring at a Closed circuit TV screen to get her essence. Doesn’t feel the same, does it?
