Press renderings corroborate earlier rumors
Sony's upcoming Alpha A77 DSLR has allegedly surfaced yet again, with several press renderings appearing on the Dyxum forums. The successor to the A700 is shown with a battery grip, which was confirmed early this year in an official teaser at the CP+ expo. The redesigned housing also appears to offer a new OLED panel that mounts via two-axis swivel.
The A77 is also expected to arrive with a magnesium alloy body, 24-megapixel sensor, and 1080p video capabilities. The design also integrates a translucent mirror for quicker autofocus, while the CMOS sensor and double Bionz processor are said to be capable of 10-frames-per-second shooting.
Sony is expected to sell the A77 body for $1,000, though a release date has yet to be confirmed.
