Sony SLT-A37

MacWorld
19 August 2012
  • Conclusion: As this a budget model costing a very reasonable $699 with the 18-55mm standard zoom supplied on test, we don’t get the top plate function window found on semi pro models, but we are provided with a shooting mode dial crammed with 12 manual and automatic picture enhancing controls, including panorama and 3D stills option. Again this is more than we’d normally expect at this price point.
  • Pros: Solid-feel build; tilting LCD back screen; plenty of manual control and automatic digital effects; good value for money with 18-55mm kit lens; sharp colour-rich images straight out of the camera
  • Cons: Some pixel fringing between areas of high contrast; AF sometimes struggles to keep up with faster subjects; LCD could be more flexible still to match the likes of Canon’s EOS 650D.

  • Excerpt: From the front the A37 looks almost indistinguishable from the previous two models. Sharing the same dimensions as its predecessors, the only noticeable difference (besides its badge) is that the rubberised hand grip now adopts a more attractive faux leather look, as opposed to the patterned effect seen on the A33 and A35. The paintwork and buttons have also received a slight revamp, now sharing a slick matte black finish throughout.

Sony Alpha A37

Pocket Lint
29 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The A37 is a patchwork of other Sony SLT cameras past and present. Its ultimate goal: to be as budget as possible. And it achieves that with bells on. But not only is it affordable, the A37 is also a great camera. The continuous autofocus system will outdo anything at a similar price point, and the same can be said for movie mode’s swift autofocus (just a shame it’s 50i, not 50p). Then there’s the 7fps burst shooting mode that’s unrivalled for this kind of money.
  • Pros: Nippy autofocus, impressive continuous autofocus, affordable, decent image quality
  • Cons: 15-point AF system is centrally arranged, build is a little plasticky, electronic viewfinder won't suit all tastes, small LCD screen and light-reflective issues, limited battery life, no 60/50p movie mode

Sony Alpha A37

Absolut Photo
28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Le Sony A37 est un reflex d'entrée de gamme convaincant. De l'entrée de gamme, on retrouve un écran arrière moyennement défini (230000pts), mais qui a le (grand) mérite d'être orientable ; le viseur est éléectronique mais d'une définition un peu limitée. A côté de ça, on trouve un capteur déjà éprouvé de 16 MP, un AF très réactif, des rafales à 7i/s, et un mode vidéo que le système de miroir tanslucide rend performant (AF conitnu et rapide, même en vidéo), un capteur...
  • Pros: Rapport qualité - prix, Mode vidéo efficace, Ecran orienatble
  • Cons: Ecran arrière et viseur limité en résolution

Test: Sony Alpha 37 (SLT-A37) (DSLR bis 1.000 Euro)

CHIP Online
25 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Die Alpha 37 ist eine heiße Kamera-Empfehlung im Einsteiger-DSLR-Segment. Die Alpha liefert Fotos mit sehr guter Bildqualität und punktet durch einfache Bedienbarkeit – sowohl für den Einsteiger als auch den erfahrenen Nutzer. Ein Manko stellt allerdings das gering auflösende Display dar. Die Leistung des Autofokus und der Serienbild-Funktion gibt keinen Anlass zur Kritik.
  • Pros: Sehr gute Bildqualität, Schneller Autofokus, Viele Automatik-Funktionen, Gute Full-HD-Video-Qualität
  • Cons: Wenige Einstellmöglichkeit während des Filmens, Kleines Display, kleine Auflösung
