Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A500L ... as in optical viewfinder mode. That's because, unlike the others, the A500L uses the same "phase detection" auto focus for Live View as for the optical viewfinder. While other Live View systems are severely restricted, Sony's performs superbly any time - even if you're shooting handheld or chasing after moving subjects like kids or pets.
Even if you're completely comfortable with the optical viewfinder, Sony's tiltable LCD empowers your photography with a different point of view. Helps you frame high and low-angle shots that would otherwise be hit or miss. The LCD tilts up or down 90 degrees to capture a child's first steps or shoot over a crowd. The 3.0"LCD features 230,000 pixels and Sony's Clear Photo LCD display technology.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining two exposures into one incredible shot. Until recently, you needed a computer and editing software to enjoy HDR. Now the A500L has Auto HDR built in. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second.
Connect your camera to a compatible HDTV and play back your images in stunning high definition. The A500L includes an HDMI output. In addition, the BRAVIA Sync system works with compatible Sony BRAVIA HDTVs to let you control camera playback using the television's remote.

Sony DSLR-A700Happy A700 owner (192 words)

kit lenses. I bought the 18-70, which was the starter lense that suited my needs best. I also purchased a Minolta 50mm f1.7 and Minolta 70-200 lense from eBay as Sony bought Minolta and so use their lense mount. This gives a good choice of high quality and low cost lenses from the second hand market, which makes up for the lack of Sony lenses compared to other makes. Sony manufacture the CMOS imaging chip, which they also supply to Nikon for the D700. This demonstrates Sony s technological value compared to the usual Canon/Nikon pair, and proves there are alternatives. Cameras are subjective, and anyone looking to purchase should try handling as many as possible to see ...
Sony a (alpha) DSLR-A350Good camera for amateurs. (196 words)

Hello! I bought Sony alpha 350 about half a year ago. Since than I took few thousand pictures. Pros: - value for the money, - easy to use, - very good batery life(at least 500 photos), - Super SteadyShot(build in camera body - not in lens like canon,nikon etc) helps keep snaps sharp. It means you don`t have to buy expensive lenses with shake reduction build in the lens, - live view - great thing. Now I can shoot from above my head or from ground level without yoga-like poses :), - solid feeleng construction - even though it`s a plastic. Cons: - noise at high ISO - it`s OK until 400, acceptable 800, but grainy at 1600. It`s pointless to use 3200. - very small ...
