"Top DSLR for the newbie that wants to shoot like a Pro."
4 February 2013
Pros: Sony really has outdone themselves with their line of DSLR camera's. In particular, the A35-A37, for the enthusiast who is ready for DSLR control and quality, while still learning about ISO's shutter speeds and aperture settings.
Cons: The stock flash (as with most DSLRs) lacks brightness, i suggest you get a mounted flash when you purchase!
Summary: Image quality is good and the control is not dificult. The lens was not expensive and has some options. Is not a perfect camera, but for the price was the best buy and increase a lot on my photos. It's a good camera.
Summary: I love this camera. It's image quality is very nice and this camera is a perfect camera for a hobbyist picture taker. It has many built in features and it can take up to 7 shots per second. This is in the same class as Nikon's d5100 I believe, and It performs much better in my opinion.
"Great upgrade from my old film SLR a Maxxum 7000!"
20 June 2012
Pros: The biggest pro I found is that my old Maxxum lenses fit this along remote control. The manual perfect to get me started with point and shoot and then on to changing the ISO, Aperture and Shudder speeds.
Cons: Biggest problem I have found is the location for the aperture setting when shooting in manual mode. I think the controls would have been better placed on left side of lens bayonet, allowing control of both at once.
Summary: This camera is really really nice. I have been using it about a month now and it has performed flawlessly. With the included 55mm lenses I have taken photos of friends and mountains. It is fully automatic and allows for complete user control of settings. Its supper fast when shooting fast subjects (birds) and also shoots full HD movies as well. It has a nice feel to the camera and is solidly built. I spend hours reviewing this camera and the Nikon 3100.
Summary: I had quite a good point and click that had manual options that I was just starting to learn. I am no expert at all but decided I wanted to upgrade to try my hand at better photos and also movies. I found that my previous cameras were too slow to capture my dog before she moved and that video was not good quality. This camera arrived 2 days ago and I am so excited.
Summary: I am totally impressed with this camera. The pictures I have taken just in the auto mode are absolutely superior to what I was taking before. I have yet to learn all the manual functions this camera offers, but the few I have resulted in very clear and interesting shots. Great bang for the buck.
Summary: If you are thinking about the Canon T2I/550D, do not get the 550d! Get this amazing product. If you are getting this for video, it has automatic auto focus. It is also VERY good with photos with 16.1mp.
