SONY SLT-A55VL Black 16.2 MP  Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Exceeded Expectations 06/28/2011

This review is from: SONY SLT-A55VL Black 16.2 MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Pros: I've been taking pictures for about 12 years as a hobbyist. This is my first DSLR. I wont have the same understanding as a professional photographer, but I will have the perspective of a general consumer.

My wife and I wanted something that would capture our two fast moving children:

-Auto and iAuto yield outstanding photos for users who dont want to mess with a bunch of settings. The usability is that of a large point N shoot with the quality that looks professional.
-My wife doesn't have as sharp of an "eye" so the 10 Frames Per Second allows her to capture action photos that she'd otherwise miss.
-Autofocus Video works well for objects moving around a backyard.
-SCN presets are really great when trying to optimize certain types of photographs.
-LCD full tilt has shown to be way more useful than originally expected.
-Fit and finish of the camera make it feel really solid when gripped.
-Custom presets can be adjusted quickly with a little practice.

Cons: Camera neck strap is uncomfortable. Spend a few bucks for a strap that doesn't cut into your neck.

Other Thoughts: Other reviews have stated that the battery life is meh, but I havn't owned another DSLR to compare this statement.

Apparently the Electronic View Finder decreases battery life, but allows for much better response. It's kinda like a double edged sword. With the amount features on this camera that come as a result of the EVF, I gladly take the tradeoff.

Musicians make music with instruments that they are passionate about. In the same way, we've gotten really excited about our photography because of this camera.

Our experience with this camera has us really enthusiastic about taking photography to the next level.

Pros: Bought one, and it worked so well at this pricepoint, that I purchased a second for a family member. Runs cool, and quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For $60ish, it's tough to get a card that will run at a better capacity.
