Summary: In many reviews there are comments regarding the video options on DSLR cameras. If I want to make movies I will purchase a camcorder. One other small point, the menu system is not really user friendly. There are many better ones out there on other brands, in many cases, cheaper cameras.
Pros: It is a "stills camera". It does what it says on the spec. sheet.
Cons: Build quality not up to that of my previous KonicaMinolta 5D DSLR.
Excerpt: I'm own 450 for 2 weeks, and I'm really enjoy it. Several years ago I have Minolta film system, so I've choose Alpha for expected reasons - want to breath new life into Minolta lenses and accessories.
Excerpt: It is a good camera,fast,nice features, well built(high iso,hdr,long life battery). Excellent pictures if you know how to take pictures,because the camera it just a tool,no matter brand so much as the man behind the camera.
Summary: I purchaed my camera "new" on ebay and it developed a fault, soon after, when the display malfunctioned. The ebay seller was a real "pain" and would not say where it came from originally and I had a lot of trouble getting Sony to repair it free.
Summary: After upgrading from my A100 which was also a great camera, I have decided to give a quick review on the A450. I still own it, and intend on keeping hold of the body until I feel it is no longer capable of producing outstanding shots.
Summary: After years of using a good wet film SLR and months of procastination, finally took the plunge and bought the Sony A450Y DSLR. Delivered quickly as promissed, with all the extras as one consignment.
Summary: This is a truly excellent camera and great value for money. I considered options from both Canon & Nikon before deciding on the A450 and I'm very happy with my choice. Picture quality is fantastic with good results even at higher ISO values.
Summary: Bon boitier intermédiaire entre la gamme débutant et la gamme expert. Son capteur CMOS fait qu'il supporte assez bien la montée en ISO contrairement à la gamme inférieure qui dispose de capteurs CCD.
Pros: qualité d'image, montée en ISO, autonomie, fiabilité
