I am looking forward to buying my first DSLR, and am stuck between these three choices. I have used Nikon D3200 and Canon 1100D for quite some time now, but those were not mine. The choices boiled down to Nikon D5300 with 18-55mm, Nikon D5200 with 18-55mm and 55-200mm, and Sony Alpha A58 with 18-55mm, 55-200mm, and 50mm prime lens. All of these choices are available at roughly the same price (around 43k INR). Since this is my first DSLR, I wanted to invest in a better camera, as lenses can be...

Hey guys, I currently use my Sony alpha a58 with the 18-55 F/3.5-5.6 kit lens at 1080p 23.96 fps. I am using a DIY lighting setup, 4- 5500K light bulbs in those workshop clamp lights, so no diffusers on them. I've heard many people say they shoot their video at ISO 200 and 1/60 shutter speed but they're using a fixed aperture lens. I just went to ISO 200 and 1/60 shutter speed on my camera to see what it would produce but it drops the aperture to F/14. Then I went to ISO 200 and 1/800 shutter...

There are so many options out there and it is just not that possible to see every bag that I am looking at in person. I've been searching online for a while now. I would like to know any opinions/suggestions for a backpack to hold my 15.4" rMBP, Sony alpha a58, GoPro, cables, an extra lens, and tripod (not necessary). I'm looking in the price range up to $100 but would prefer around $60-70. Thank you for any suggestions in advance!

Does a58 have internal memery for images? How many MB ? There is no info in the manual. When one inserts the SDHC card, will a58 automatically switch  over to save images on the card?

Hi, I've no doubt that this question has been asked before but 'm still wondering about a possible solution. The A58 manual (p108) describes the standard way to lock autofocus in order to focus and recompose. Before I bought the cam I saw in the manual that it's possible to assign [AF lock] to the AEL button or ISO button, by doing so can you lock the focus by pressing these buttons in autofocus mode. Works for me, I thought. Alas, these buttons just work like a half-press of the shutter,...

I really want a better eyepiece/cup for my A58. I wear glasses and in strong sunlight, I have to wear a peaked cap to shade my eyes. Must be something out there to extend the standard eyepiece?
