    sony a55

    YOU BE THE JUDGE

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKFBm7wuUeQ

    PROS
    LITE
    GOOD PICS
    GOOD VIDEO*(SEE CONS)

    CONS..
    VIDEO LIGHTING JUMPS AROUND DUE TO THE AUTO MODE..NO WAY OUT.IF YOU NEED PRECISE VIDEO...FORGET IT..HOPEFULLY SONY WILL FIX FIRMWARE

    VIEWFINDER...KINDA FUNKY..but will get used to it eventually

    BATTERY LIFE...GOES FAST

    OVERHEATING ...NO WARNING...ZIP YOUR DONE

    TINY (GOOD THING I HAVE A BOTTOM GRIP)

    FOCUS SEARCHES WHEN STATIC ON A SUBJECT

    NEED TO BE RECORDING BEFORE YOU CAN ADJUST WHAT LITTLE ADJUSTMENTS THERE ARE in video mode
    .................................................. ............
    EVEN WITH IT'S ISSUES. FOR THE $$$ IT IS A HECK OF A CAMERA

    ALL IN ALL FOR MOST PEOPLE IT IS A DREAM.

    IF YOU NEED PRECISE VIDEO...FORGET IT.

    IF YOU PURELY TRUST ALL YOUR PICTURES TO AF...OK....IF YOU DO ALOT OF MANUAL FOCUS...YOU MAY NOT LIKE THE MINI TV VIEWFINDER....

    TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.....YOU CAN SET IT UP SO IT GIVES YOU A CLOSER VIEW DURING FOCUS..BUT THAT TAKES SOME TIME TO GET USED TO



    I'LL STICK TO MY HIGH END VIDEO FOR WORK ..BUT THIS IS PRETTY GOOD FOR WHAT IT IS.....AS LONG AS YOU DON'T NEED PERFECTION

    AND IS A DECENT PRICE...


    (NOTE ..LENS MM IS 1.5X SINCE IT HAS AN APS-C SENSOR)
