I always like to have a look around in the user’s manual before I get a camera, so it’s good to see the A77 User’s Manual available from the Sony website as a pdf. It’s under ‘Specifications’ then ‘product warranty’.
A few things I noticed:
- The 16-50 f2.8 comes with a hood (as it should for the price).
- Although ‘digital level gauge’ is shown between ‘no info’ and ‘histogram’ in the cycle brought up by the display button, this is switchable. I’m pleased about this because having a clear finder and histogram a single button press apart is great when judging exposure.
- Memory mode will remember three lots of settings – I’d forgotten about these. Should be useful.
