      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      An excellent starting point

      Before giving up work to look after my daughter full time, I was a professional mobile photographer for a small independent company. As with most photography companies, there was a very wide range of cameras to choose from, and although I mainly stuck with the same kind, when those were booked out by other photographers, I would have to use a different one.

      The Sony DSLR-A850Q was one of my second-choice camera's. Being the most affordable full frame DSLR camera on the current market, it comes equipped with Intelligent Preview and is highly resolute with an epic 24.6 mega pixel lense and is perfect for those who want or need to print big - studio or similar types of work.

      This camera is an extremely powerful tool, boasting an extended ISO of 100 - 6400 and lets you shoot jpeg and Raw, and also gives you the incredible cRaw format.

      But this camera isn't without its flaws. Most of the buttons and controls are poorly placed; the auto white balance seems to be inconsistent and there's no built in flash, live view or video mode. Apart from the flash, minor problems for a professional photographer.

      Overall, this camera is excellent for professional beginners but for the more experienced, there is much better quality out there.
