Good for pratically all scenes. Fast shot and excelent for low lights. Flash left to be desired a little bit. Problems: To switch from movie to pictures is a little bit confused and it's not too fast.

Here's what I wanted in a good new digital camera along with a load of information that I wish I could have found all in one place when I was doing my research. I know my way around cameras, but I am not a professional photographer and I am not receiving compensation for this review! I wanted a large sensor for superior photo quality (and freedom to crop) and I wanted the option of full manual control. I wanted an optical viewfinder, which left out the NEX models for me and also kept me ...

I have been through quite a few cameras with my most recent being the fabulous Sony A550, which was a great camera. I was able to do basically anything I want to with this camera and it just kept performing. My only reason for upgrading to the A580 was because it has Full HD Movie capabilities. I was not expecting much more of a difference other than that, but all I can say is WOW!!! As previously stated, the A550 was a fabulous camera, but the A580 turns everything about the A550 up 2-3 ...

This camera is very good for general photography, i think the best A class so far, even better than the first SLT generation A33/55. As you can see my latest photos from greek islands in my big photo album at : http://community.webshots.com/user/btbill the image quality is very good combined with a good len CZ16-80. I use also Olympus E-5 which is better than Sony but costs double money!

Have just moved from my trusty A100 to the A580 and it is amazing. The camera is so much more responsive. Quicker focus, accurate light metering, quick recovery when using flash (no noticeable delay - you seem to be able to shoot just as fast as without the flash) Took three hundred photos, most with the flash yesterday and yet the battery was still showing 74% of capacity still available. Even long shots, using the 250mm end of the lens, across the room, were well lit by the flash. The A100 ...

I agree with those who came before me (below) This camera is the best I've ever owned....and I've owned more than most of you, I would guess... On top of their comments: 1. REMEMBER: this camera throws IS at any lens that it mounts - even the $50 E-Bay A mounts that are sharper than Sh*t...made by Minolta back in the 80's and 90's in Osaka JAPAN. 2. Don't be a bigot. Canon and Nikon are *really great*(?) but....you're not a Canon and Nikon lens freak or you would NOT be reading this! 3. This ...
