  • Conclusion: The Sony Alpha DSLR-A580 is the only digital SLR that can deliver beautiful images and blazing fast autofocus whether you're framing your shots with the optical viewfinder, or with the LCD in Live View mode. Video-capture options are a bit limited, though.

  • Cons: Manual focus-only video recording. No control over shutter speed while recording video. Limited selection of video modes.

Sony Alpha A580 Review

What Digital Camera
16 March 2011
  • Summary: For the spec and feature list on offer, including the 7fps burst rate, the A580 is priced in the right area. Canon’s EOS 600D is priced at around the same level with a marginally differing feature list, making the system employed more of a consideration.
  • Pros: Quick AF Live View, fast burst mode, decent movie
  • Cons: Lack of movie controls, burst mode exceeds focus potential

  • Summary: It is easy to see why the Alpha 580 slipped under the radar while the Alpha 55 grabbed most of the attention. While in reality the key functions are all much alike, the Alpha 55 edges the Alpha 580 on more counts.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A580L review

23 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Sony’s recent A33 and A55 cameras are packed with innovative features, not least of which being their translucent mirrors and electronic viewfinders. As such, they’re not technically SLR cameras, even though they’re designed to compete in that arena.
