Looking for Alpha 100 users and I feel like a real dunce!! But what's new?!! I just joined these forums and so far have managed to sound even less educated every time I post . Oh well...bumbling right along. I just purchased this awesome little camera last night and having just had surgery (recuping at home) I'm not able to hobble around much to use it I was thinking the shutter sounded loud, but after reading another post, Don, says the Canon 20d is louder. Good! I feel better. What other good info do y'all Sony 100 A users have?
