- Sony a380
My old man has a a350 and while it takes pretty good pics I don't like the feel of the camera. I have a Nikon D60 and much prefer that everything feels like its in the right place where the Sony feels awkward. It is probably just a personal preference thing but its worth thinking about.Posted 8 years ago
Yeah.. point appreciated but 'feel' or ergonomics are second for me to certain features and image quality. I personally really like the live view with tilting screen, and the continuous focusing. IE by the time you've framed the shot it's already focused*, so your shooting is instant. Great for action shots. I don't think any of the others at that price have such facilities, do they?
* provided you're in woods or something and not about to take a snap of someone riding by against the skyline…Posted 8 years agodoogeMember
I have to say Sony SLR's have always ft a little industrial however the new bodies feel awful in the hand. I work in a large multinational camera shop and the amount of people that get put off by the feel of it. Ergonomics are always going to be better on Canon as they always have, however the Sony is comparable in image quality I would say, only losing up in the high ISO stakes. It has got an amazing live view, and the built in stabilisation is a brilliant idea.Posted 8 years agoyoshimiSubscriber
Out of interst, why are you thinking about getting one of these over say a 500D or D90? Reason I ask is that I'm looking at similar cameras and so far I think the Canon is probably the one to go for………but I do flip flop between them and yet to make my mind up 100%Posted 8 years ago
