      Great camera

      Comments about Sony Digital SLR 10.2 MP Camera:

      I purchased this camera as a present for my daughter who wants to get into photography. She LOVES it. The quality of the pictures are first class. I have even had them blown up put into frames and hung them on the wall. Again this is a great camera.

        Comments about Sony Digital SLR 10.2 MP Camera:

        This is my first DSLR camera, and I love it. The menu is very easy to use and it takes great pictures. The only downside t this camera is the lack of video recording and also the small grip. These are minor issues though and would not stop me from recommending this DSLR.

            Awsome camera for beginners

            By Siddhu

            from Buffalo, NY

            Comments about Sony Digital SLR 10.2 MP Camera:

            This camera takes awesome pictures and is extremely easy to use. To me the 'must have' feature for beginners to explore the Manual settings on a SLR is live view. The macro shots are amazing and so are the long shots. Having steady shot inside the camera is a very nice feature. For the price its competitors are simply not good enough.

              Cons

                This is replacing an older DSLR by a different maker. Some new functions I have to get use to but it was well researched and is working better than I had hoped. It was a Christmas gift so I am still getting use to it.

                  I love it, i am in the "beginner" category, and have to say. its is very easy to use, i still haven't run out of battery life and i have had the camera for 2 weeks now. There are a ton of functions to explore and if you are feeling overwhelmed, stick it in auto mode and click away.

                    Comments about Sony Digital SLR 10.2 MP Camera:

                    I have had this camera for about a year and about three months ago it started saying camera error occasionly. Now every three pictures it says camera error. I am taking it to a specialist but I thought nothing of it at first. I know I put the live view in both pro and con, because It has helped me take a lot of great pictures. When using live view you have to compensate for how off the picture will be. For example I would try to take a picture using live view and when I got it centered the way I wanted, and took the picture, when the review came up the picture would be farther down then how i centered it. None the less this is a great camera, and I love it.

                      Comments about Sony Digital SLR 10.2 MP Camera:

                      Pros:
                      I've been using this for a year now and I can say that on my level as an amateur- I am satisfied, though I plan to upgrade lens in the future. The kit lens (Tele & 18-55) is a regular one so don't expect too much but it can produce decent images. I only use this for hobby. Controls are easy to remember. You'll love the LCD. Acceptable in general photo. Light weight. Performs best in morning/afternoon/evening still shots. Budget entry level camera with good features. Option to use eyepiece or LCD (live view) is helpful.
                      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Cons: Battery life isn't good, in a day, you'll consume two. Remote shutter not applicable. Rubber on camera body begins to peel off easily after a year. Rubber grip on lens worn out easily because it reacts to sweat/rain/moisture producing salty white color but it is easily cleaned by moistened cloth. (See support image link below) The shutter click sound is so lame- sounds like a toy, you can't feel shooting energy. I hope Sony can establish their unique signature click. I'm sure they can outrun Nikon's nice and crispy shutter mechanism sound. Neck strap is awful, it'll scratch your neck :( I hope Sony can add a little pad on it.
                      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      Summary:
                      It's a nice and affordable camera for amateur. Good features but limited upgrade (you can't use a remote shutter and battery pack.) But if you're reading this now, I suggest you check their latest model first like the Alpha SLT 55 that carries a new technology. Ask yourself honestly what do you really want in a DSLR. If you're not really into serious photography and just want something better than a point and shoot camera, and just want to have a straightforward photo- you can take this one without guilt. But if you're into future upgrades- then get higher and better models.
