The Sony SLT-A77: The Unofficial Quintessential Guide

The Sony SLT-A77: The Unofficial Quintessential Guide by Carol F. Roullard and Brian Matsumoto, Ph.D.Rocky Nook has released a new book, The Sony SLT-A77: The Unofficial Quintessential Guide by Carol F. Roullard and Brian Matsumoto, Ph.D., detailing the use of the Sony Alpha-77 single-lens translucent (SLT) mirror camera, one of two cameras Sony is doing right in the industry; the other is the $700 soon-to-be released (tomorrow!) compact RX-100.

The new book – all of 272 pages – details a wealth of information about the unique features of the Sony SLT-A77, an interchangeable-lens camera with an electronic viewfinder and a fixed, translucent mirror.

The A77 differs from the current crop of DSLRs in its ability to use a phase detection focusing system throughout the entire picture-taking process, for both still photographs and videos. This provides an immediacy and responsiveness when using burst shots and creating HD videos that is unavailable in any other camera.

In this guide, authors Carol Roullard and Brian Matsumoto teach you how to obtain exceptional photographs and videos as they cover everything from the basics of using the camera’s automatic modes, to the more advanced aperture-priority, shutter-priority, program, and manual exposure modes. You’ll also learn how best to take advantage of features such as the built-in dynamic range adjustment, sweep panoramic, GPS, colorization modes, facial detection and recognition, multiple shot exposures, and HD video.
