Summary: This camera is a European camera that films in the PAL format. The US uses a format called NTSC. NTSC shoots in 24p 30p or 60i. The PAL format shoots in 25p or 50i. This camera will be useless for you, don't waste your money. Notice that the page does not offer the Video Resolution or Frame Rate of Capture. They are clearly trying to get one over on you. Now Amazon is telling me that there is nothing they can do for me. I just wasted over $500.
Summary: I would love to give this purchase a 5 star rating. It is a great camera and the bundled package offers a ton of great stuff. I paid $10 more for this package than just purchasing the camera alone and you get $100-$200 worth of extras. The extra battery alone is a great deal. HOWEVER, and this is a MAJOR however. I purchased this camera not only to take pictures with and replace my older Sony a100 but also to shoot video with it. I purchased it on the Amazon US store.
Summary: Lower quality than previous models, does not support the wireless remote control, the display is 2.7 Inches, with low image quality. Hdmi cable not included audio or video cable. Made in Thailand. Very short power cable. I do not recommend it, better buy a Nikon. I am very disappointed.
Summary: Description shows that it has a 3 inch LCD and it is only 2.7. I found the information difficult to read because of the screen size not to mention the resolution which was absolutely impossible to make out in the bright day light. Sony have downgraded their product and the A57 is head and shoulders better than this item. I don't know what Sony was thinking by making a plastic lens mount.
Summary: I don't know what the hell is wrong with all these people..!! buying a camera and that too worth 30k bucks..?! :O Damn..!! and some buy it for hobby..!! there are people out there without food., and people spending 30k bucks for hobby..!! technology is getting worst inside..!!
Camera is fab. Lens is awful. Remedy cost is too high

Summary: I am damning this camera because of the lens it comes with. This might be unreasonable if part of my money did not go on THAT lens. There is no 'body-only' option, Sony lenses are very pricey indeed and Sony is rolling out the NEX/Alpha series. So I don't think it's harsh to condemn it because of a marketing decision that keeps a zombie lens alive and splices it on some fantastic cameras.
Summary: I am a professional photo editor and this is my first DLSR camera. I was using point and shoot digital camera till I bought this. This just ok camera, not worth the price. Only good point is the battery and 20 MP. I took 1500 shots in 4 day span without charging the battery. Kit lens is not sharp. you can see double edges or ghost in photos when zoomed to 100%. This is irrespective of the lighting condition. And this double edge/blur/ghost increases as you zoom the lens.
Summary: Cuando quieres quitar una foto se bloquea ,en la pantalla lcd dice "camara bloqueada,apagar y encender",y tienes que quitar la bateria porque la camara no se apaga. Mientras tanto el dinero lo tienen ellos,y la camara no es barata.
