Sony's little treasure!!!!
on 28 April 2010
In a world where all the camera snobs insist on Nikon this and Canon that, it comes as a refreshing change to find a so called mid range camera that can rub shoulders with the best of them.
Sony itself can be accused of dampening the A500 down by touting its bigger brothers with their big price tags.
At the moment the Sony camera range appears over crowded with all the A2- A3-A4- and A500 ranges and to be honest none have them have set the world on fire.
Ive been a keen photographer for twenty five years, at the age of 15 i got my first proper camera, the Ricoh Mirai.
Recently ive been using my Nikon 700 to produce brochures for a local florists, but i thought i would test out my new spare camera- Sony Alpha 500.
With a little bit of tweeking, the Sony matched the quality of the Nikon with ease which was a shock for me, infact you would have to take the photos to a lab to pick out any trivial differences.
Its a very user friendly camera with very impressive systems inside to produce extremely high quality pictures.
You really need to look at the specs. Its also quite a big manly camera which is good for me as some other cameras, epsecially compacts can look really girly.
This is a message for anyone thinking about buying a Dslr, dont listen to the fan boys!!!!!
