Cheap Sony DSLR Digital Cameras

Sony are a giant of a company with roots back to the mid 40’s. Sony is a world-wide well respected electrical engineering brand; a company with its finger in many pies, including entertainments and, more unlikely, financial service.

For our purposes we are interested in their achievements within the DSL market.

Sony did not blunder into the DSLR market, they bided their time whilst they developed the superb and affordable Alpha range of DSLR cameras.

The first Alpha, the a100, entered the fray in July 2006; it was a stunning success, easy to use, ergonomic and priced just right.

The Alpha range has continued to evolve and still represents great quality and value.

Here’s an interesting current Sony model:

  1. The Sony Alpha a58

The perfect camera for those on a tight budget but capable of professional results. Lightweight in feel heavy on features, the Sony Alpha a58 is an absolute delight to handle and operate. The Alpha boasts a 20.1 megapixel Exmor sensor, sharp enough for some pretty hefty enlargements with little risk of distortion. The sensor also significantly reduces noise when operating in low light conditions.

  • Focusing is extremely easy and accurate, adopting a high-tech fifteen point auto focus system. No guesswork, just frame and shoot.
  • The lock-on focusing feature really is a wonderful bonus; it does as it suggests, locks-on focus and tracks fast moving subjects. Very impressive, especially considering this features works with video as well.
  • On the subject of video, the Sony Alpha a58 shoots in glorious high definition, allowing smooth sharp reproduction at the touch of a button. The camera retains its zoom features during video filming; perfect.
  • What’s more, the camera is capable of shooting eight frame bursts per second! Ideal for shooting sport, wildlife, children and other animals.
  • Sony’s Tru-Finder real time display means you can see, on screen, exactly the shot you’re about to take. What you see is what you get, an opportunity to make a few exposure or framing adjustment perhaps! Playback is fast and clear.

Impressive practical and creative features for all users. A truly bargain camera; comes as body only or in various kits with a variety of lenses.
