This is truly a wonderfull camera for anybody who wants to get into the SLR Digital Camera world. Photographs are excellent, the level of detail that one gets in the pics is amazing, and it is so easy to use. Little by little one gets more use to all its features, but right out of the box, after charging the batteries, it’s just point-a-shoot, with all the professional look of it. If it’s worht mentioning, the only thing that I do not understand why this model does not support it, is the “live view”. But taking pics the old fashioned way, looking thru the viewfinder, it’s even more realistic down the road. I, as a beginner, recommend this product 100%!

Fine camera; SUPERB customer service from Sony!

I bought this camera from Amazon one month ago and have been very satisfied with it (and of course, Amazon’s great service). I won’t repeat the many pros cited in other Amazon reviews, but I was blown away with Sony’s online customer service. For many years now, most companies’ CS strategy has been to promise more and deliver less. I was therefore quite unprepared for my excellent experience. I was unable to find a particular “how to” answer in the camera manual so I went to Sony’s website. After entering the model number, I was given the option to do a real-time chat. To my amazement, (a) I was immediately connected with someone, (b) she quickly acknowledged that DSLRs were beyond her and she was transferring me to a specialist, (c) the specialist responded a few seconds later….and (d) she correctly answered my detailed and rather technical question! I’m still in shock. If you’re debating between camera manufacturers, this is something to seriously consider before making you choice.

This camera was so much more than it was advertised to be. It does so many different types of shots and it works like a charm. The only thing is the memory card is larger than my other camera so we had to buy my son a new one so he could use the camera. I really like it a lot.

Excellent camera. Why spend more money on other brands when this has all the features of the more expensive cameras. I love this camera, takes awesome photos and has so many creative aspects to photo taking. You can change the lenses for other types of photography; macro, etc…but the lens that comes with this camera does it all. You can zoom in when you need to. There is a pop up flash that senses low light. You can put it on all automatic; focusing, light metering or you can go creative and make your own settings. This is a very versitile camera that is great for the beginner or for the advanced photographer because there are so many possibilities. This takes creative photography to the max! I love this camera, my camera, and would recommend it to anyone!

I havae a small digital camera that takes good pictures but I wanted one that would get me some close-up shots during football games that my son plays in. I researched several cameras and lenses from various manufacturers and sellers. I finally decided to go with the package that Amazon was offering. I do not regret the decision. I am no professional by any means, but the camera makes the pictures seem like I am. I am still learning some of the different functions on the camera, but they are not that hard to learn and in time I will have a handle on them. As an extra bonus, the camera actually arrived earlier than anticipated. Very happy with the camera, lenses, and the delivery.

Bought this to replace a Minolta Alpa Sweet Digital. It was a newer version and the old lens fit perfectly. It was as discribe.

We bought this camera for work taking pictures of construction sites for our marketing media, it was great, and then it was stolen. I recommend the Sony brand of cameras because of the Image Stabilization built into the camera. Most brands do not include this as lenses have image stabilization, but, those lenses cost more than double a standard lens. Buy one of these Sony Alphas, to save money, get last years or older model, it’s still a terrific camera, then just get a nice Tamron lens and have at it.
