Sony a37 for a beginner?
Jan 31, 2013

This is my first post to this forum but I have been here a lot lately. I am researching my first "real camera" purchase. In the past my photography experience has been limited to a very simple point and shoot and my cell phone for pictures, and a cheapo toshiba camcorder for video. I would LOVE to get any and all opinions on a great beginner camera that I can grow with. My main and most important use would be video. I like to pretend I am a vlogger on youtube and that is my real motivation in upgrading my camera. My perfect camera would have an articulated screen, 1080p video, AF during video, and I'd love to be able to change lenses depending on what I need. Also, I'd love to spend $500 or less. Initially it seemed that the sony a37 fit that bill perfectly but lately I've been seeing a lot of negative comments about. Please let me know that you think. Do you have the a37? Are you a beginner too? Thanks in advance.
