28 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony recently got five consumer cameras for its dSLR line up and amongst them; the Sony Alpha DSLR-A500 is the best one. All five cameras are within the $500 and $750 price range and I really liked the Sony Alpha DSLR-A500 because it gives great value for money. The quality of photo too is better here and I was impressed by its performance. Sony Alpha DSLR-A500 has a tilting LCD on the back. This device is pretty similar to the step-up A550 with a few exceptions.

Sony Alpha 500 Review

  • Conclusion: The Alpha 500 has lots of features and proves to be a competent performer. Whether that is enough for it to become a major success remains to be seen, as there are many other DSLRs on offer that could be described in a similar fashion. This includes the Canon EOS 1000D and Nikon D3000, as well as the highly capable Pentax K-x, all of which have the edge in terms of design and handling.
