sony a580,best all around family camera..

greybear57, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: I've used the a580 for about one year.It works fine with a variety of minolta AF lensesand my sony lenses.The none follow focus with video is no problem,the subjects are far enough away that I use hyperfocal setting. The photo's are sharp and clear.It has a learning curve,it will do many things some Ido not know yet. Before i bought it, I found out it's limits and features .The camera does everything it's advertised to do!

Great camera

M. Truong, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an amazing camera. I decided to pull the trigger after reading countless reviews and comparing versus other cameras. The menu system is extremely easy to learn and follow. The LCD is bright and beautiful which demanded that I buy a screen protector to protect its beauty. The image quality is phenomenal even up to ISO 3200! It's very durable and easy to take care of even though its made of plastic. The grip fits my hands perfectly as well as my girlfriend's.

Better than Transllucent Mirrors

WWJDwithCA, Amazon
9 October 2011
  • Summary: The Sony a580 is an excellent camera that has really been lost in all of the excitement with the new translucent mirror products, particularly the a55 and the new a77. Just surveying the number of reviews, the a77 had four reviews before the product was even released and the a55 with 88! The a580 has seven total reviews and its not only a better camera than the a55, it's a better camera than the a77!

Excellent build quality, a top contender

Sinore Espresso, Amazon
9 October 2011
  • Summary: I've had my 580 for about 3 months now, having captured thousands of images in a variety of lighting and other situations. I shoot mostly macro,landscape and general nature photography. This camera has been endowed with virtually every feature that a professional and most certainly non-professional would need. There are a number of 'auto' modes that are easily employed to 'figure out for you' the proper aperture, shutter speed, flash, etc.

Sony's best DSLR

Fabius, Amazon
25 September 2011
  • Summary: I have a Sony a300 and upgraded to the a580 recently - for the record, I really like the a300 and am keeping it. The a580 has some great improvements - mirror lock-up is great for those 500mm telephoto shots, depth of field preview is nice, focus check live-view magnification really makes it great for macros. Handling, size and feel is about like the a300, which was just right.

Low-Light High-ISO All-Star Digital Cameras

Tatiana Nicholas, Amazon
21 September 2011
  • Summary: Sony Alpha 580 The $900, 16.2MP Sony Alpha 580's test results are virtually identical to the Pentax K-5 and Nikon D7000, although its ISO range tops out at 12,800 its signal-to-noise performance is identical to the D7000's right up to it stop ISO. The slight difference in quality at ISO 1200 is made up for by the fact that the Sony costs some $400 less than its competitors.

User Review

Tadingle, DP Review
27 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I have been through quite a few cameras with my most recent being the fabulous Sony A550, which was a great camera. I was able to do basically anything I want to with this camera and it just kept performing. My only reason for upgrading to the A580 was because it has Full HD Movie capabilities. I was not expecting much more of a difference other than that, but all I can say is WOW!!!

Camera is great

Camera Girl, Amazon
23 August 2011
  • Summary: Great camera I have had four Sony cameras now and all have been very user friendly and produce wonderful photos. The company provided the camera in the time stated and all parts were present and working. This product is a 580 not a 580L.

Great Camera

Vaibhav Tiwari, Amazon
23 August 2011
  • Summary: This camera has visibly better photographs then its contemporaries in the same range. The different is apparent at low light and high ISO conditions. I like many of its features HDR, Panaroma, in camera stabilization and its well laid menu. One thing that also impresses me is its personality, its certainly more beautiful than d5100. I compared its photographs with rebel xt(old but great camer) and d3100 after 30sec exposure. The photographs for sony were far better.

No small step forward

Alan M. Greene "annapoal", Amazon
23 August 2011
  • Summary: This is a great camera for the money. The new sensor has great low light performance and is a significant step forward. Combine this with a wide dynamic range and the week link is the photographer not the camera. How well it meets your needs you must decide. Great live view. So so ovf. Fast shooting with 7 fps. In body stabilization. My 100 -300 APO is image stabilized along with all my lens. HD movies.
