Summary: I have just received this camera today from Sony and I have taken about 250 photographs to test it. I am coming from a fuji S602 bridge camera that has done a great service for many years and I wanted to upgrade to a DSLR.
Summary: I am looking to buy a new camera, my daugther dropped our nice Kodak. Growing up we always had a SONY and loved it. My dad still has his and it takes amazing pictures. While I did not locate this camera on my own, was brought to it via another site, I am glad to have found it.
Summary: I recieved this camera with everything including the box, manual, lens, lens cap and accessories. The battery even came half charged, not drained, so I wouldn't have to spend hours charging it. I could use it right away.
Summary: I am a novice photographer looking to improve my skills. The only issue I have with this camera is Sony's lack of expansion options for it. The next higher Alphas have the ability to attach a lower grip for extended battery life.
Summary: My original intention was simple: purchase a reasonably priced digital camera without video that included, in one lens, an adequate wide angle and generous telephoto capacity. The megazooms neatly fulfilled these requirements.
Summary: After about a week with this camera, I really like it. I am a photographer and I needed a D-SLR, I wanted to start small, but not too small, and cheap. I did do a LOT of research before buying this.
Summary: I love this camera. I tested other cameras in the same price range, but preferred this one. The portrait setting is great. I am used to shooting a 35mm SLR, so it doesn't bother me that the LCD screen doesn't display what you're shooting.
Summary: I got the camera 2 weeks ago and so far I am very pleased. I am not a professional and I have always had a point-and-shoot cameras and this is my very first DSLR camera. For those who are looking for a DSLR camera on a budget this is a good choice!
Summary: This review is based purely on results. A friend in Brazail sent me a few photos, as email attachments, taken with his camera. They are, in a word, perfect. Very clean, true-looking colors, and true-to-life images (beach and surfing) in high-contrast and difficult tropical light situations, both...
