Although I like the Sony brand

HMH "hmichael0330", Amazon
13 October 2014
  • Summary: Although I like the Sony brand, this camera didn't stand to the company's reputation for quality and reliability. Soon after I purchased this camera I went on a cruise in the Caribbean and while on vacation the camera started shutting off for no reason.

Alright for specific type of user

RyeLusion, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: Picked one up from a local retailer. For a camera costing this much I expected the build quality to rival that of competing brands, instead I got a reaction that this was a toy. It never felt right in my hands the way a Nikon D90 or a Canon 60D does.

  • Summary: Let me clarify the above. After reformatting my HDD and re-installing XP Home, my videos in AVCHD would not play. Contacted Tech Support by phone and they told me that they do NOT support XP except as an original installation.
  • Pros: Easy of use.
  • Cons: Battery life. Microphone picks up auto-focus noise which is very annoying. Too easy to press the "record video" button by mistake when using the monitor. Lack of support from Sony - see below.

Warning: Don't buy A33 or A55 if you want to use with studio flash

Zebrasoma, Amazon
15 February 2011
  • Summary: Bought this (not from Amazon) primarily to use with studio flash units. It doesn't have a PC sync socket (few digital SLRs other than very expensive ones do) but I thought I'd use a radio trigger instead. Massive problem: to use studio flash you need to work with manual exposure.

  • Excerpt: Этот аппарат удивительным образом совмещает в себе низкую цену и параметры на уровне проф. тушек. Но всё таки чудес не бывает и за каждый шаг вперёд надо чем то платить. В случае с полупрозрачным зеркалом плата, я бы сказал, высока и лично для меня не оправданна.
  • Pros: Цветопередача, удобство в эксплуатации, лёкгость, скорость.
  • Cons: Шумность, малая светосила, высокое энергопотребление+малая ёмкость батареи.

Gut ausgestattet, macht top Fotos und Videos aber überhitzt sehr schnell !

St. John Smythe, Amazon
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Da ich auf der Suche nach einer Kamera war, die sowohl gute Bilder macht, vor allem aber auch zum ambitionierten Videofilmen taugt, stieß ich auf die SLT-A33. Doch es gab einen Knackpunkt, auf den ich gleich eingehen werde, welcher in einer Rezension erwähnt wurde, die mich vor der Bestellung schon...

Gut und schlecht - ganz nah beisammen

  • Summary: Was habe ich mich gefreut als ich die a33 zum ersten mal in den Händen hielt...toll, kompakt, super schneller Autofokus und eine pfeilschnelle Auslösung. Genau was ich gesucht hatte, ein Underdog der in einer hohen Liga spielt. Insgesamt habe ich mit der Kamera ca.

Nicht 100% überzeugend

HansMaulwurf, Amazon
9 October 2010
  • Summary: Hallo, ich habe mich aufgrund der FullHD Filmaufnahmen für die A33 entschieden und hierfür meine Lumix G1 versilbert. Heute kam dann mittlerweile die 2te A33 die ich auch (schweren Herzens) wieder zurück zum Händler schicken werde. Warum?
