4.0 out of 5 stars Sony A350K, 4 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Sony DSLRA350K Camera (14.2 MP) inc 18-70mm lens (Electronics)
Very good camera,and excellent value. Some nice features..espcially the 'live' view LCD,and the way when switched to 'normal' slr optical viewfinder, the LCD with good information on it,blanks out (saving battery usage)when the eye is at the viewfinder. Controls are all well placed on the camera,and when familiarised with them are good and simple to use.
Like a lot of SLR's with this sized sensor..there is visible 'noise' at higher iso's. So,some other camaras would be more suitable if a lot of low light, non flash, non tripod pictures are to be taken.
Also the camera does not have a very fast 'burst rate',and certainly if shooting in raw..it seems rather slow in writing images to the memory card . Also the reviewing procedure is not ideal..being rather slow and arkward in gaining access to information like 'clipping' of highlights and shadows. The information is all available ..just could be seen quicker and more easily.
The camera is medium size and weight compared to other mid- priced 'enthousiast' SLR's ...and feels quite good to handle....but perhaps not as 'solidly' built as some other cameras .
Especially recommend this camera if a good 'live LCD' SLR camera is wanted at a reasonble price.

Sounds like you're using a rather slow memory card. It is not always the speed of the camera hardware that slows things down. Often people go for the cheapest memory cards and wonder why their camera does certain activities so slowly.
