SONY SLT-A58K Digital SLR Cameras Black 20.1 MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens

5 out of 5 eggs Good luck finding a better camera. 01/12/2015

This review is from: SONY SLT-A58K Digital SLR Cameras Black 20.1 MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Pros: The camera spells out affordable professional grade DSLR all over it. The frame is robust. Detachable 50mm lense (can be swapped for other types). Provides great manual control for professionals, as well as easy automatic features for novices. Uses a good video codec. Battery life is extremely long (took a two week vacation, tons of videos, no recharge was needed). Picture grade is absolutely amazing (even shots of the sun with proper filters). LCD adjustable for different shot angles.

Cons: The eye piece has a sensor that detects if you are trying to use it. When it detects that you are, it shuts off the LCD. When taking pictures in difficult angles or in the dark, this sometimes gets annoying. Also, the eye piece and the LCD are too level with each other. So, when you use the eye piece, your face is ALWAYS touching the LCD. Using stuff like sun block gets all that oil on the LCD.

Other Thoughts: While the camera does have picture enhancing features, it does support Sony's version of a RAW picture format. Using applications like Photoshop CSx (close source) or UFRAW w/GIMP (open source) will enable you to work with these images.

The eye piece should have an attachment option as dirtying up this high quality LCD screen is a real bummer. Also, Sony should have provided some form of intro attachment catalog for people wanting new lenses, flashes, HDMI attachments. It takes real homework studying to figure out what can be used for a camera, a real money maker opportunity lost for them.

5 stars because a detachable lens 20.1 DSLR with these features and RAW format support under $500 is almost impossible to find.
