4 stars if you don't care about video, 2-3 stars if you do somewhat, 1 star if video is important

  • Summary: I really like this camera, I just don't like the fact that the video overheats so quickly. I learned this lesson the hard way when filming my baby's birth. I set the camera up in a fixed position to record the delivery and when I went to check the video afterwards, it cut off a few minutes before...

  • Summary: As a photographer I was looking for a camera to take along on vacation. I shoot with Nikon D300's. Buying the Sony was a hard choice to make seeing that all the glass I have is for Nikon. I got it because of the video performance and the very small size.

  • Summary: Pros: Small and Light weight, Lots of features such as movie, HDR, Panorama,10fps, horizontal/vertical leveler etc. Good display of menu info. Cons: Based on using JPEG & RAW and #6 high speed card. You get about 300+ shots on a battery.

In some ways, this camera does fall short...

Michael Tounian, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to give the camera a single star, due to my annoyance with the worst feature of it, the HD video and it's complete automation. However that would not be fair to the product, and I will complain about the HD issues soon.

Video recording problems

  • Summary: I like everything about the camera when taking still pictures. The video overheating matter is a problem. I found an alert on the Sony website [...] I have since attempted to record videos with the SteadyShot setting in the off position.

A note from other country

  • Summary: I have been reading reviews on A55 and A580 for quite a while. I personally enjoys taking wild life pictures so I think that the fps is a really important feature. I personally will got for the A580 although it's fps is slightly lower than A55 for the following reasons.

Great camera, poor customer service

  • Summary: Truly stunning camera 5 stars-good step up from the 390alpha I had before. Unfortunately I had an issue with the battery-it never worked - didn't take a charge, straight out of the box- most manufacturers would have repaired it under warranty, unfortunately Sony wouldn't repair or replace a brand...

Schwere Sache das

Fuexline, Amazon
22 March 2016
  • Summary: Auf der einen Seite besitze ich viele Sony Alpha Kameras und war stets zufrieden, allerdings ist die A55 ein sehr zweischneidiges Schwert das von genial schnell in Frustration abrutschen kann - dabei hätte diese Kamera starkes Potential gehabt.
