NYC At Night With Sony SLT-a77

Sony’s new SLT-a77 features a high-resolution, 24.3MP Exmor sensor that can not only take very sharp images in low light, but also extraordinary Full HD video. In both case, built-in image stabilization allows you to shoot at slow shutter speeds with any lens, and image processing hardware helps tame noise. To demonstrate how well it performs, I shot some sample videos and still photos in Times Square, New York City at night. I used the built-in stereo microphone for sound recording, and set the camera to ISO 1600.
