Ahh,.. good to know. Sony only says:
"Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter and sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23 MP image size. "

I've used some of their P&S models with the same description that don't have the option to take a horizontal pano with the camera in portrait orientation. Cool that they did figure that out!

This post is no longer necessary as it referes to something that isn't there anymore.

I've read in a number of places on the web that the A77 announcement is to be delayed until next month as a result of the impact of the tsunami - see here, for example:

Anyone know if this is correct?

I've just checked "www.sonycenter.ro" and it's down for maintenance - could it be that they will add the A77? That would be a first, having a product the same time as the rest of the world...

I have also heard that, but it makes no sense. The actual 'in-stores' date (October-ish?) being affected makes perfect sense. But a paper-launch announcement doesn't need a factory anywhere.

Yes, I agree. Unless, of course, Sony have limited confidence in their ability to deliver the product by October.

A77 on 7/7 would have been nice, but as far as I know it's going to be August and so we'll just have to wait (maybe it'll be called the A88 ...???).

The judgement day was shifted to August, as per the SAR update a few weeks back.

... original plan was to announce those cameras in July but the announcement has been delayed to late August because of the recent production issues that external suppliers had after the Tsunami-Fukushima disaster ...


While they're only laying the blame at the foot of the "external suppliers" I've seen reports that (at least some) Sony facilities have had serious problems, too; some of the problem may well be Sony's.

However, if ANY of the problem is external, then Sony has to consider the possibility that their suppliers' estimates are "optimistic," at best. It's possible that some critical component(s) may NEVER become available, that Sony will have to re-engineer with an alternative part and that the camera-spec may change as a result.

In the face of an imponderable (regarding parts-availability), and possible/unknown consequences to the camera-specification and camera-availability, I think it makes good sense to delay the announcement.

Yup, the "critical components", along with their engineering specifications and diagrams, washed away during the Tsunami flood.
