    Best DSLR on the Market in this Price Category.

    Customer review by JM29

    5.0 stars by JM29

    I have owned many Cameras in the past Bridge Cameras Mostly. I purchased the DSLR-A100 which was Sony's first Digital SLR. Excellent Camera. I decided to wait to upgrade that one but I did purchase a couple of Bridge cameras instead the DSC-HX100v and the DSC-HX200v which I just purchased from WalMart right before I bought this great camera. I was shooting in a house with low light the 200v worked great but I knew that a DSLR would do alot better in Low Light due to the larger image sensor that is used. I had been saving for a SLT-A77 but decided on the this camera due to the recent price drop and to me an additional $500 for the A77 which may give you a few extra features that I won't even use. You get the Same great Image Sensor and the Great OLED Viewfinder that the A77 has just minus a few extras that really are not needed. This Camera gives you the Same Sensor as the A77 and the 15point focusing system is the same from the A55 which was highly rated first SLT. Single Len Transparent. This looks like a SLR but it is not there is no mirror that flips up and down. Jsut a semi Transparent Prism that allows 70% of the light though to the Image Sensor the rest goes to the EVF Sensor which is a OLED EVF this is ground breaking because it gives you the best possible picture of what you are photographing. OLED is a first in the Industry and the image that you see looks great through the viewfinder as close as a optical Viewfinder as you can get without going back to a DSLR style mechanism. Highly Recomend this camera to anyone who want the ability to change their lenses. and who needs low light coverage with 1080p video. This Camera really does it all. And until the A77 drops in price I will be taking many photos well into the future. The A77 will be replaced and maybe that one is next on my upgrade list. Thanks Joe

    I really like this camera, I was debating between the Canon Eos Rebel T31, the Nikon D3100, and the Sony Alpha-55 but when the a65 came out with 24.3mp, it was an easy choice. My only complaint is that the user manual is far too basic, and truly does not even begin to teach you how to use all of the features. I wish there was a tutorial on the software disc, which isn't too much too ask on a $1000 camera.
