Choosing Sony Alpha A65/A77 Scenes

Part of Sony Alpha SLT-A65/A77 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

In the Sony Alpha’s A65/A77 Scene Selection mode, you choose a scene per the kind of photo you’re taking: portraits, action, and nighttime shots benefit from different Scene Selection modes; and macros and panoramas are two ends of the shooting spectrum in Scene Selection.

Scene Selections
Name Description
Portrait Creates a pleasing photo with a blurred background.
Sports Action Tries to take a sharp photograph of moving objects.
Macro Takes close-ups.
Landscape Takes sharp photos so things at a distance are in focus.
Sunset Takes good photos of bright sunsets.
Night View Keeps city lights bright but the night sky dark.
Hand-held Twilight Takes hand-held photos at night.
Night Portrait Takes photos of people at night.
