The Sony Alpha SLT-A77 is an interchangeable lens camera for the semi-professional and enthusiast set, with a high-resolution 24.3-megapixel APS-C image sensor. It features Sony's pellicle mirror design, which is a little different than a traditional DSLR (more on that here), but opens up a world of tricks for the A77 to call upon. The camera also features a phenomenal grip, OLED XGA viewfinder, articulating rear monitor, and 12fps full-resolution burst shooting. Those are some very serious specs on paper, especially when you consider that the whole camera can be had for a body-only price of $1399. The camera is available now, though with initial demand being so high (and the flood in Thailand delaying production), the camera is expected to resume shipping at the end of January.
