Sony a55 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm zoom lens – Review:
EXCELLENT COMPACT DSLR!
This camera is probably the best compact DSLR in its segment right now. Here’s my summary:
1. Extremely fast and accurate AF. It’s as good and sometimes better than my Nikon D90!
2. Image quality from ISO 100-800 is good as my Nikon D90 and is as good or superior to anything near or in its segment! Images above ISO 800 are still very decent and competitive with anything with its class.
3. Images from the kit lens are sharp and vibrant.
4. EVF is accurate, detailed, and provides all the info. you need
5. Excellent quality HD (1080i) video…..better than most DSLR’s in its class. Low light capability is excellent.
6. Best Live View of any DSLR around….w/very fast AF.
7. Excellent tilting LCD screen….vibrant and hi-res.
8. Light and compact body…..easy to travel with.
9. Tremendous value…..beats anything in its class (best bang-for-buck)
10. Received dpreview.com’s coveted Gold Star award!
1. Relatively short battery life
2. HD video limited to 9 min. with Steady Shot on (but 29 min. with it off). 3rd-party lenses with lens OIS may be a work-around.
3. Limited manual controls with video.
4. Camera might be too small for users with big hands (be sure to handle it in person if possible)
