Failed after only 16 months!

Richard Patnoe "Rich", Amazon
27 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to provide photo documentation of projects I perfomed through my shop (antique restorations). The camera itself performed admirabley until Christmas morning. I have treated this camera with all do respect, it has never been dropped, thrown about or misused in any way. The memory card interface has failed - the camera will not recognize the card (the card has been verified to be in good working order).

maybe you'll get a good one

Mark Twain, Amazon
12 June 2009
  • Summary: I bought a 350 from sony and either one or both of the 50mm and 28 mm fixed focus lenses on Amazon. Very unreliable auto focusing with both lenses. Trying to communicate with Sony to get repairs was very frustrating (almost as frustrating as with a cable/dish TV provider). Their "repaired" camera isn't. Printing a 24x36 poster from my Canon point-and-shoot is as good as one from the 350 and these lenses. Avoid.

Awful Customer Service. Camera stopped working properly too soon

Jocelyn Staskus, Amazon
3 April 2009
  • Summary: At this point I will never buy another Sony product ever again. After only 4 months my camera stopped focusing properly. I took the camera to the nearest Sony store to see if their proclaimed "camera-guru" would be able to ascertain if it was human or machine error. When I saw he was taking shots in the store at 1/800 @f8 with no flash, I was horrified. This guy had NO CLUE WHAT HE WAS DOING!

Faulty Item

Amazon Customer "pathannaway", Amazon
23 April 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this item secondhand (DSLR A350) fron Amazon. It cost £199.99. It did not work. The LCD monitor at the rear of the camera is supposed to display "Live View" and camera settings, and show the picture(s) taken. It did NOTwork. I fully charged the supplied battery, attached a new CF memory card and a new SONY alpha series lens. No joy. I then replaced the supplied battery with a new Sony battery, againfully charged, but the LCD display failed to operate.

  • Excerpt: Sorry. It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it. I am from East and know bad English, give please true I wrote the following sentence: `Best price of imitrex order imitrex cash on delivery.` Thank :-( Kenna.

Genügend

Dittmar Kracht bei Priel "dittmar", Amazon
26 October 2009
  • Summary: Ware kam pünktlich, jedoch funktioniert Blitzlicht nicht richtig, klappt nicht automatisch ein bei Programmänderung, Blitz ausschalten oder Gerät ausschalten. Keine automatische Schließung des Blitzes. Verschiebt und beschneidet das anders als es im Suchfeld angezeigt wird ( ca.25% Verschiebung). Ansonsten ausreichend funktionstüchtig.

  • Excerpt: Слабая зеркалка. Для начинающих фотографов, пытающихся заработать на свадебной или портретной фотосъёмке (им в помощь необходимы продвинутые логорифмы и системы подавления шумов и трясски) 350ая, этим гордится только в рекламных роликах
  • Pros: Произвёл покупку, довольный прошлым своим "Мыльным Динозавром" - SONY R1 - с великолепной просветлённой оптикой от Карл Цейса., Итог -, Хорошая эргономика A350. Дополнительные спусковые кнопки на блоке питания (для левшей, коим являюсь - хорошая идея)Внешнии вспышки (пользуюсь HVL - F56AM.)
  • Cons: Пользуясь отредоктированным Балансом Белого, и ТОЛЬКО на 100 ISO, снимая только в RAW, можно быть довольным. Но мне быстро всё ЭТО надоело. Шумы после 100 ISO, даже классный кадр испоганят до жути. Прогресс SONY посмеялся над всеми, кто не в состоянии купить зеркалку дороже 500 Евро, и тем более, кто повёлся на рекламу от Сони.

SONY ALPHA 350 se arruina con unas gotas de lluvia

Jose, quesabesde.com
13 January 2009
  • Summary: Compre la camara SONY ALPHA mientras viajaba por Rusia, en una tienda en Moscu. Un dia antes de regresar a Buenos Aires sacabamos fotos en un parque y comenzo una llovizna, que mojo ligeramente la camara en lo que tarde en guardarla en su funda. Que cren? La camara comenzo a funcionar erraticamente, y el servicio tecnico de Sony en argentina dice que la reparacion cuesta algo mas de U$300. La garantia no cubre pues SONY NO DA COBERTURA INTERNACIONAL.
