Great camera!

  • Summary: Overall I highly recommend this camera. I was looking for a camera that would take good pictures and great video. I did a research on many cameras and I decided to go with the sony a65. It has tons of feautures, it is light and feels good on the hand. The only think that I don't like is that sometimes when you try to take many pictures fast it freezes and you have to turn it off and on. besides that problem i think it is a good camera.

Impressive technology!

  • Summary: I have only used this camera for a short time, but I like it so far. The absence of an optical viewfinder takes some getting use to. The images appear sharper compared to my previous Canon Xsi. Auto exposure seems to be adequate, unlike the Canon, which routinely overexposed the sensor. My biggest complaint is that the panorama mode simply does not function. It displays various errors upon trying to use it and those errors are not correctable.

Bought this for video but have to return it.

  • Summary: I bought this strictly for video work but I have to return it and get the A77. I really liked this camera though. It shares the same large sensor as Sony's NEX-VG30H $2,700 semi-pro video camera. Problem: The LCD flip out screen only turns to face outward from below. If the camera is on a tripod it's almost useless if you're in front of the camera. I knew that before I bought it but I thought I could get by and line up shots before stepping out front.

  • Excerpt: As a photo hobbyist, this camera has not let me down. The kit lens are acceptable, but I upgraded to better glass with even better results. Several of my prints have received awards with many getting the comments like "WOW, that's a great picture". I've effectively used the 10 frames a second continuous shooting feature to capture some sequenced actions shots that told the story with great emotion.

SONY DID IT AGAIN

  • Summary: I consider myself a novice when it comes to photograph although I've been taking pictures as an amateur for decades now. So, I wanted a nice DSLR (smart) camera that can take nice pictures and videos without having to do too much in terms of adjustment in the process. After some extensive research, I decided to settle for the Sony A65V for a couple of reasons, first, the price has stabilized in the past year or so compared to other cameras on the market with the same...

Pretty good camera with a few limitations.

  • Summary: Fun and fast camera. It should not be listed as a "SLR" though. It is a "SLT". You gain quite a bit of speed using an SLT but do lose image quality in some areas. If you are using strobes, this camera is a pain to sync.

Sony alpha A65

  • Summary: I am new to DSLR cameras. I bought this camera with the 18-135mm lens. It has truely amazed me on how easy it is to use. Still learning all the features but the speed of the continuous shooting has enabled me to get shots I never was able to before. The ability to shoot panoramic shots also reduces the need for a wide angle lens. Shooting video is as easy as pushing a button. So just using the auto scene and auto focus settings.
  • Pros: Fast continuos shooting. Clear images that you can crop and blow up.
  • Cons: I haven't figured out all the cool features
