"BEWARE of Sony Alpha cameras! Shutter sensor fails"
14 June 2013
Pros: Bokeh is great. It is a beautifully performing camera until the Shutter Sensor gives out!
Cons: According to online forums,Alpha shutter sensors are NOTORIOUS for giving out almost immediately after the Manufacturer's warranty has expired!As a major player in the U.S., Sony should create a recall on this issue!Very disappointed!!
Excerpt: I have using this camera and I liked several functionality. Some case, I have issue in studio about SLT technology. So, if you have use a lens not more clear, you will have problem to work with flash. The solution in studio to work this camera is use of the continuos light. In this case, you will see all power of Sony Alpha 55, because it stay stable and could you define your composition with style and precision. A very nice feature is this flexible panel in live view.
Excerpt: I have owned this camera for quite some time now and have used it in just about every situation you could think of (legally)! I have found it to be superb! It is really easy to use (I generally shoot fully manual), fast and accurate. I do tend to use it a lot in low light situations where flash is not an option!
