Holy smokes!  I’m in love!

Brian says I haven’t stopped talking about a new camera since I held the copper brown A330 DSLR.  Well, SONY’s new Sony A77 24.3 MP Digital SLR showed up at our house and from the first moment I pulled it out of the box I was in love.  This is a 24.3 megapixel camera WITH the award winning Translucent Mirror Technology for under $2K!  I LOVE the way it fits in my hands.  I love how heavy and light it feels at the same time.  It’s got spunk but not overwhelming–know what I mean?  Popular Science magazine awarded this beauty as one of the Top 100 Best Innovations!

Most of all, I’m LOVING THE RESULTS!

I took it for a test spin at the Florida workshop.  When the babies showed up for our model shoot, I was so excited to see what this beauty could do.  I also used the new Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 Lens.  Since the a77 DSLR is a partial frame sensor, the 16-50mm lens gives me similar results that a Sony 24 -70mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss Lens would on a full frame sensor.  Say hello to more versatility!  Being able to go down to f/2.8 (for that buttery blurry background) while getting wide or framing a portrait is what I love most!

Having never shot with the a77 DSLR, I’m pretty excited about the results!

Wardrobe change!  :)  Isn’t she DARLING!

All of these photos were shot with using natural light in hotel rooms.  No studio lighting or fancy accessories.

Love that expression on his face!

Check out the six month old twins!  Steal my heart!

I processed these photos when I was showing our workshop ladies how I edit images.  This last one of the twins is pretty much straight out of the camera.  The color in SONY cameras is breath taking, just ask the ladies at the workshop.  They were witnesses to how great the color was before I even touched the images for edits.

Anyone else own the Sony A77 24.3 MP Digital SLR?  If so, how are you liking it!  Post up some of your images on my FB page!  I want to see YOUR results too!
