Picture Quality

Has an Image Stabilizer

The Alpha SLT-A77 has an image stabilizer, as do most of the other high megapixel cameras that have been around for a similar time to this camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with an image stabilizer and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon EOS 6D ($1,219.99), and the Leica V-Lux ($1,150) is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative digital cameras which also have an image stabilizer including the Sony ILCE-7 ($949.99).
